    Everyone is complaining about how they hate where they are living and it's tough but i am from the Caribbean and as everyday goes by i just wish that i can migrate to another country that is really safe an makes life worth living….Currently the crime rate in my country is rapidly increasing, the murder toll is 264 so far and it was as high as 506 in 2008. The sad thing is that this country has billions of dollars since the oil boom which means that we can afford better but the government are just corrupted and so as the protected service. The fast-food delivery guy reaches faster than the emergency services, the police/fire/hospital can be 10mins away and they always take more than half hr….i would rather much live in the U.S any day, have any of you ever go to the hospital and there are no beds available? or even a doctor?. Well i won't like to say what country it is exactly but its known as TT so look it up.

    Nina Vaughn-Mueller But I don't remember seeing any South American county on the list either. America is a great place to live, but you have to admit, everything Ben Ngo and Justin Reed said are true. It doesn't make anyone wrong for saying it.
