What are the advantages to being born in the USA or coming to the USA over the rest of the planets humanity? For all the good and bad are we looking a gift-horse in the mouth? IMO being born here and visited outside the US, being born here is a tremendous advantage by world standards. What do you think?

What exactly does "brewfest" mean?

Somehow this sounds like a good thing-- like something I might want to be a part of. If there are enough of them, why haven't I been invited?

I doubt there is much of a "tremendous advantage" over say... being born in Canada, western Europe, Japan, Australia or New Zealand. The playing field is probably about on par for any of those.

Seems like more of an "Industrialized nations" vs. the 3rd world sort of imbalance.

Probbaly not much different that going to a new aquaintance's house. Until you learn the rules and know what they are comfortable with it just doesn't feel the same as "home'.

Ironically, at least twice in our history, people who were born in the USA had to go to Canada to be free.

If you were talking about naturalization through being born in those locations, I dunno about the others but you can't get citizenship by just being made in Japan. So for those from 3rd world countries there would be a big advantage to being born in the US over, eg., Japan.

Yeah, I wasn't really looking at things from a legalities perspective. I was just considering day to day life - things like the ability to live in a a relatively decent home, have access to food, water, health care, access information, etc..

Husker, I'm curious?
What is it that you can't do in Canada? What is it about Canada that makes you feel less free? LOL

LOL! Laughing
Yes, of course it's an advantage. A HUGE one. Even though other countries may have as many freedoms as we do, and some have better "benefits", we who were born here were very fortunate.
Do I really have to list reasons? There are other countries I would also enjoy living in, but overall, I feel fortunate to be here.
Okay, I'll try to keep my snide political aside out of this!
