it seems many canadians are offended by the top ten reasons america is better than canada list. just to assauge canadians' hurt feelings about the subject, here is another nation that america is superior to. irefer to france. number 10--we have a space program. france doesn't. number 9--we have five times as many people. number 8--we have new york city, france has paris. number 7--we are a superpower; france ia a minor country. number 6--we have a larger economy than france. number 5--we have disneyworld, seaworld and the playboy mansion; france has the effiel tower. number 4--we saved france's bacon during WW2. number 3--without us france would still be a german province and the french would be speaking german. number 2--we have hotter women than france. and the number one reason america is better than france--WE'RE NOT FRANCE. we hope that makes some canadians feel better about their inferior status.

Just a couple things....if population alone makes a country better, then China and India are the best places to live in the world by far.
Also, as much as I like the US, it WOULDN'T EVEN BE A COUNTRY if French forces hadn't helped them expel the British, and that's something people in the US will always have to live with.
Finally, the US DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A NAME.'United States' is not much of a name and 'America' was used to refer to what you guys call South America for at least 200 years before your country existed(which was enable by the French, as you know).

It doesn't matter where you live- there are great people with golden hearts everywhere in the world. Thats what is so great about travel. No matter where your're from- when you travel to another part of the world- you leave with a peice of it in your heart- and you always long for home. Viva La France and God bless America. What a beautiful world we all share.

Wow, if this list is any indication, Americans are really as dumb as the stereotype suggests!
#10 - I agree. A space program is cool.
9 - So like someone else said, I guess China and India are better than USA? Population makes you better how?
8 - That actually makes a better argument for France.
7 - You were a superpower...
6 - Larger economy AND more poverty, I wouldn't brag about that.
5 - That's another win for France.
4 - Wrong. France helped you fight the British during the War of Independence, which allowed America to exist at all, but you let France get taken over by Nazis to return the favor!
3 - Wrong. France would be no different. Germany would have been defeated by Russia, but Stalin probably wouldn't have tried to occupy France. America saved West Germany from becoming communist, that's it.
2 - If by hotter you mean more obese, you may have a point.
1 - You sure aren't. A French person could actually come up with more than one actual reason why France is better than the USA, without listing 9 stupid ones.

France is better. For one it takes care of its people and has the finest health care system in the world. Whereas the U.S. has 47 million uninsured Americans and 40+ thousand of them are allowed to perish every year as a result of this systematic, plutocratic genocide. France has paid maternity leave, does not destroy its unions and the people fight pationately for the common good.....The United States on the other hand, is too busy exploiting and destroying its own citizens to give any importance to their wellbeing; and the people are unbelievably stupid, fighting only for their right to be either greedy pigs or selfish dogs screwing each other over for measley corporate scraps. In France, the people rule. In The United States only the rich and the corporations are represented politically and the people still vote Republican!! Like the utter imbecile, halwits that they are! France believes in the common good....America, DOES NOT! Hence education and health care are almost unaccessible.

in identity terms
France has a real identity America doesnít. your not even native to the land native Indian Americans are not you. France has identity that goes back from roman times America was build by Europeans that also means by the French not by you o its looks like youíre the inferior one . That ting about Nasa wasnít that invented by German scientists all the rocket ideas were stolen from Germany by Americans
France has its own space program which it invented itself
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Space_A...
in power terms France isnít a superpower so what it what difference does that make. its a great power thatís second to superpower and this present time France has the 5 largest economy has the third military budget in world
2010 it was ranked best country in the world to live in 5 times in the row. Also France is advance in nuclear technology most of it s energy come from nuclear.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie... (nominal)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie...

without France America would still be called British America. France has history and its own language America doesnít it just borrowed history language and people from other lands.

Paris is a very rich city with a large economy with history not seen with identical skyscrapers all of the Americans cityís look identical there might else well be just one city in America. France is part of the eu which is more powerful than America in economy and could mass produce military beyond America. I donít how population size proves a county better that means India and china are better countyís down to you. its not like France only has 2 million people it has large population for its land size.

ok first of all France does have a space program which pretty active unlike the USA one that just launched their last shutter and will borrow money and equipment from the Russians to keep the ones u launched in place. your number 9 explains ur number 6 u have bigger economy because u have more people. Paris is consider the romance capital and an intellectual while new York is the "big apple" probably cos all Americans are fat. France is part of the superpower countries and they also form the European union army which is gigantic. France has a disneyworld and all of that plus other parks that u r not awere of because they dont have them in America. American women are consider one of the ugliest while the French one of the hottest. Without France the USA would be a part of the united kingdom and it wouldn't be the same probably only the 13 original states ^_^. Your lack of education shows through your ignorance about a country you have never been to and probably never will

O.K. French your arguements:
1. France helped America become a country. True, but America helped you not get your a** kicked by the Germans.
2. Nasa is as active as ever, our shuttle department shut down, not the space program.
3. Military. Don't get me started again. You prick a** French cant even run toward a fight.
4. The name. Read a book. America was founded as each state being its own country, therefore being united for protection. Calling itself the United States.
5. Trollol is an idiot. An apple is a fruit which is healthy. If I saw you id kick your midget a** all the way back to France.
6. I went to France this summer, and for one thing, your country is vile. It's ok that you will all die from smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day.
7. America is more stable economically than Europe. When Greece defaults, Europe itself will decline even more.
8. France is NOT more advanced than America in nuclear tech. We have done much more nuclear testing and still have enough resources not to use nuclear tech.
9. We have better diversity in america
10. American Dream
11. We still ARE better
We are now better than you stupid French dicks

@hattiesburg american

........no. I'm not saying France is better than the USA, but your whole list is BS.

10. the space program is overrated and useless. we should be devoting out time and money to useful science like curing diseases, not just launching stuff into space...

9. who cares if we have more people? how is that a positive thing?

8. okay, new york city is cool but Paris is probably better. maybe it's a tie, kinda a tough call.

7. France is also a superpower. They have the fourth largest economy in the world, the 3rd most nukes, and they are a permanent member of the UN security council. The only difference between France and America is that France will still be a superpower 10 years from now.

6. True we have a larger economy than france, but france's economy is more self sufficient because they are not addicted to oil like we are, so they can be independent of the economic influence of the middle east. Also, they have much less debt than us. So although our GDP is larger, France's economy is arguably stronger than ours.

5.disneyworld and seaworld suck. they are tourist traps where you can spend money and wait in line all day. the playboy mansion is cool, but have you seen French women? their whole country is like the playboy mansion...

4. we helped to save france in WW2, though the Russians probably could have done it without us. either way, france saved us in the Revolutionary war and the war of 1812.

3.(see #4)

2. American girls are hotter than French girls?! I hope you're joking....

@Mr America

8. False. France is completely independent of Middle Eastern terrorist oil because they get virtually all of their energy from nuclear power plants. If america is so advanced in nuclear technology, how come we're still FUNDING TERRORISM by putting gasoline in our obnoxiously big hummers...

9. France smokes and drinks more than America and STILL has lower rates of cancer and liver disease...

All of the other things you said are complete BS and don't even warrant a response.

But I'm not saying France is better than the US. Here are some serious things that the US is better than France at:

1. Civil liberties- In France, free speech is restricted and in some cases you can even be arrested just for making fun of a politician or saying something racist or offending somebody in anyway. America is the best in the world at Civil Liberties.

2.Diversity- America has an awesome melting pot culture filled with elements of all different countries. France, on the other hand, openly hates Muslims and even passed a law banning the wearing of the burqa.

3. Food- Okay, this one is kind of a tie. The French eat frogs and snails.....gross. But if you actually take the time to look up how chicken mcnuggets and big macs are made it is just as disgusting. So the winner for food is......Italy.

So I'm not taking a side in the France v. America thing, but if you want to criticize France, think before you speak and make sure what you're saying isn't complete idiocy.. Both countries are very cool.
