Convert everything to lower case and then compare:

var original = ”usa”;

var input = document.getElementById("Your_Input_Field_Here").value;

var userInput = input.toLowerCase();

if(original == userInput) {
   alert("Match!");
} else {
   alert("Error!");
}

Use a regular expression for this:

var myVal = "USA";

if (myVal.match(/^(United States|usa)$/i) { alert("Match"); }

The "i" after the regular expression makes the match case insensitive.
