USA or Someplace in Europe: Where is Life Better?


Post by Fliegender » Mon Oct 21, 2019 8:53 pm

Personally, I would say Europe. Many European countries have a higher standard of living than the USA and even those that don’t, can claim to offer a better quality of life. Among the advantages of living in Europe are low- or no-cost higher education, long paid vacations, a shorter work week, guaranteed retirement with a decent pension and widely available healthcare that will never bankrupt a family.

Advantages of living in the USA? Cheap gasoline and the ability to buy a Ford F-150. The USA is great if you’re rich (well, anywhere is great if you’re rich) but if you’re working for a living, most countries in Europe are better. Even the U.K. where they drive on the wrong side of the road is better.

And Trump doesn’t live there either.
