I personally wouldn't count either of those as massive draws... free speech yes... but not always... and capitalism (even though we aren't) is never good.

Capitalism is about as good as it gets, what are you talking about? You'd rather give the government everything you work for?

Ok...again I'm confused so I'm going with freedom of speech and wonder what this question really means.

How are you confused? I am confused by how confused some people get by simple questions! Not just you nwlyfree ... I got that on another super easy one of mine today

I don't put hidden meanings in my questions or anything if that's what you mean - it means what is asks. If you weren't American, and you were thinking of moving to America, which is the thing that you'd be more impressed with?

I think that may be what is confusing - I forgot I took the part about not being American out because I was told it was too narrow unless it was geared towards Americans

Capitalism isn't a big draw because it screws over an entire social class... you can't do that. I would rather give up some of my money and with that still live a good life and help others to do the same.

Since Kik put it that way, if I was a foreigner, I'd be drawn more towardsfree speech.

Freedom of speech...though actually we don't really have freedom of speech...i cant tell my teacher to F**k off, or else id probably get expelled, or suspended at least...i cant voice my opinion cus theyll just tell me im wrong...like i told my mom i cant eat spicy food..and she was all like "you can too, you just dont want to!" but really, my throat starts to swell if i eat spicy food! people dont care about other peoples opinions!theyre so wrapped up in theyre own little worlds that....wow i got a bit off topic...

Capitalism is not good, because people suffer, but people can suffer because of fre speech (racial abuse)

Lots of other countries have free speech; so what's so unique about that?

"Capitalism is not good because people suffer"
Care to explain that? Would you say that people do not suffer in a communist economy, where they do not reap the benefits of their work?
Anyhow, America is not fully capitalist, unfortunately, so that cannot be listed as a draw.

I suppose people who don't know how to spell speech aren't that crazy about it....^

FREE SPEECH???? ahahahahha, you little joker... When is the last time you used the words handicaped,blind,dwarf,mongol,retard,dik and all the ethnic "bad" names? The politically correct is the end of free speech.

Read George Orwell's "1984". Cause that's what you get without free speech. Limiting speech is limiting thought. If you couldn't speek up agaist the government then Capitalism wouldn't last very long before the government took that away as well.

Not everyone believes in political correctness. You don't go to jail if you call someone a retard. :)
