I would so love it if the Left would stop being afraid of losing to the GOP so much that they won't admit how wrong Obama has been on very critical things. Our fear of losing ground has accomplished just that.

Corporate fascism in which the left and right bow down to the lobbyists, and a culture of ignorance that continually perpetuates this ideal by supporting and posting false information in order to push an agenda that any high school economics student could expose.

My friend.......give it up. You're only making a fool of yourself.

I really hope people pay attention to your posts because it is a great educational tool to show what propaganda (like what the National Socialists did in Nazi Germany) can do to a person.

Progressive? No.

Uneducated morons.....yes!

As an American who lived in Britain for a few years, I call complete bullsh*t on this.

1. Britain is not socialist, not by any stretch of the imagination. They have more government than we do, for sure. But socialism? You do realize Britain is considered the most capitalist country in Europe, right? London is the financial CAPITALIST center of Europe. Hell, in some ways, they are more cutthroat capitalist than I've seen in the U.S.

2. Even the poorest people in Britain live better than many working class people in this country. The overall standard of living for the population of Britain is better than the overall living standard here. I barely saw any homeless people, and the few I saw were completely insane.

3. Even though they have nationalized medicine, they still pay less per person into the National health Service than Americans pay for health insurance that only covers a fraction of healthcare costs, and leaves people having to mortgage theirs and their kids futures should they ever become sick.

4. Even though they have "socialized medicine", they also have a very healthy private medical industry on top of it. And I found the quality of healthcare in Britain overall better and more honest.

5. The British Pound Sterling remains one4 of the world's healthiest currency.

6. The average Brit has no where near the amount of debt the average American has. Not even close.

7. Food in the stores over there is not only cheaper than here, it is often of better quality.

8. Despite the insane prices of gas and smokes (or petrol and fags as they say), the British manage to drive and smoke without going into poverty.

Seriously. Deny Ignorance.

Can anybody show us some real figures that show Britain's "Wealth" in comparison ?

So far only seeing many deflections.

Maybe it's all about *Debt* and *Credits* ?




America is almost 8 trillion more in debt than the UK. So by default the UK is doing better.

True, and the per capita is "better" also for the UK, and so is their %-GDP

But this guy Nelson is comparing the UK to States.



How do we solve the perpetual worldwide debt problem ?

THEN I became independent, which now translates to whatever party Dr.Carson is.

And how does this put a spotlight on socialism in general, please explain, the measure of a state's wealth is only a measure of it's over all wealth, you do know that in mississipi there are people who do not have clean access to fresh water, there kid's are illiterate, they may be in the minority but they exist, but oh hey let's forget about those poor soul's mister big over here is so rich he make's up for it, hell he made his money of the back of the economy but want's to MINE IT DRY for himself and hoard all that money in his own account's, so he does not want to share with the people who he had strip mined and because he is so big on the set of scale's it makes Mississipi richer than the UK, yeah sure what a pile of B@~@:cks.

After the war Britain was bankrupted and all our money had to go to america, we were paying up all our GDP bar a little so long we were on ration's until the late 1950's, this money that stripped the wealth of the empire and of course as agreed with the US we also had to withdraw from our colonies (Gandi need's revising as he was not the reason we withdrew from india, africa and our other colonies with only hong kong as it was a 199 year lease to reamin until that lease expired), this made america the richest nation in the world in one decade, we would not have won without there help so it was a price that was worth paying but all that money filtered into a small handful of account's through a process called consolidation of asset's and power.

In a british style socialist measure we would have placed appropriate taxes to pay for our education, our NHS and our Subsidies toward industry so ensuring our workers had job's.

If you want to see what happend to socialism in Britain ask the Tory Party or better yet ask the Tory's that infiltrated the Labour party.

In one term we went from self sustainability to having our asset's sold off and that was under margaret Thatcher (you know her husband dennis had billion's but only paid tax on about 4 million), then Blair came along, a thatcherite who was intent on finishing what she began and The GAT WORLD TRADE AGREEMENT was signed, the CBI are ultra right wing Tory's.

SO who did there research, PROPEGANDA, I am British, Can trace some of my ancestor's back to the saxons so to the indiginous British celts as the Saxons marred the native woman and my country is being taken over by foreigner's, IT is my country and believe me when WE ran it it was ran correct.

Nelson isn't claiming Mississippi is richer than Britain.

But now that we have opinions that the UK is not Socialist....
