It's not that i dont like America i just dont like the life style and some of the people. I hate to rush rush rush all the time and id like to relax. The reason i want to move to australia (whene i have enough money) is because i want to live by the mountains, the forest, the lakes, and the desert all within a short distance of eachother. It's just so beautiful... I dont know how anyone would want to live in a subdivision or detroit when you could live in a great place like that.

All the 12 year olds and older doing drugs. And look at some of the parents forgeting their kids in cars. Look at all the gangs and shootings. Just look at our f*cking divorce rates. And your calling me gullible. Tell me please, how were any of my comments being gullible? hmmm...
85% are irresponsible? Oh, I don't know, I suppose that might be about right. I know I exceed the speed limit every day, so that might brand me for life, and I've run two or three red lights in my lifetime (nothing bad happened, though it scared all Hell out of me).
Gullible - well, if you think Australia is better than the U.S. for this type of thing, and you want to go - then GO. But I'm sure that if you moved out of Detroit, you'd see that 85% of the U.S. is plenty responsible and healthy, probably right on-par with what you'd like to see. Big cities tend to be magnets for people, and you end up with more distractions and irresponsible behavior per square mile. It's not so bad in America, but if you're ashamed of the place, then go. I was particularly smitten with Japan. I'd love to go to Australia. I may enjoy living anywhere I go (though there are several places I would like to avoid). But if I'm going to be judgmental of people HERE, might I tend to do that anywhere else I go? And if I go elsewhere without humility, might that be pretty arrogant of me? And wouldn't it be pretty obvious to those who I speak with? Yeah.
Promise me this: You won't go off being like the Dixie Chicks... Don't go somewhere saying how you hate America because the people are all losers. Just go and see all the neat things there are (wherever you go), soak it up, enjoy it and be happy. Then come home. Go to Mexico sometime.
