No.

Wrong, once again.

But try forcing your socialism on me or on anyone who doesn't want it.

DO IT!

I don't have to force anything on you it's already been being put in place for over 100 years you're just to blind or ignorant to admit it/ see it

Force socialism on you? Go ahead and do it?


Why force it on you when the majority here can just vote in socialist senators and president. All we need is a majority.. and boom.. no need to force anything on you, it will just.. become.


That's the beautiful thing about our democratic republic... We can simply become anything at anytime, just by checking a few boxes on a piece of paper.


As far as this thread goes, no one who has done any research at all into the Nordic countries would ever say their standard of living is less than ours. That's idiotic, which is why it makes sense it comes from Trump.

In the Nordic countries, taxes are high... But..

1. There are barely any homeless as they all have a place to stay and help/assistance physically, emotionally, and monetarily.

2. They have govt. Provided healthcare.

3. Wages are high and the economy is booming with low unemployment.

4. The education system is incredible, and on the bleeding edge of methodology and technology.

5. The houses there are really nice and utilities are negligible in price due to renewable clean energy.

6. Fat pension and retirement plans

7. Most families have nice new furniture amd top end tech in their homes.

Also they have time and money to have holidays and travel, it's seen as necessary for people's well being.

There is no legal basis for socialism in the United States.

Socialism isn't list of government services and freebee goodies at a random corporation's expense.

Well powerty in Norway is relative to the general income, so you are regarded as poor in the statistics if you make under 19.000$ a year...

As for homelessness, there are around 3000 persons without an address in Norway, most are addicts living in shelters.

Depends on perspective.

Most people not in the center of an urban area live in houses with yards with houses averaging over 2k square feet.

www.aei.org...




Average/Median House Size. In 2015, the average size of new houses built in the US increased to an all-time high of 2,687 square feet (see dark blue line in top chart above), and the median size new house set a new record of 2,467 square feet (see light blue line in top chart). Over the last 42 years, the average new US house has increased in size by more than 1,000 square feet, from an average size of 1,660 square feet in 1973 (earliest year available from the Census Bureau) to 2,687 square feet last year. Likewise, the median-size house has increased in size by almost 1,000 square feet, from 1,525 square feet in 1973 to 2,467 last year. In percentage terms, both the average and median size of new US houses have increased by 62% since 1973.



Now compare with Finland with 837 squared feet with new houses averaging 880 sq ft (US new houses are 2,400):
suomifinland100.fi...


demographia.com...


I do enjoy may 3,600 sq ft house on 6 acres.



O.o House size is not entirely indicative of a higher standard of living. We rent 2100 sq ft of house, but I don't consider it relevant in terms of us living well. What I consider it is too damn big for 4 people, and a pain in the ass to keep clean.
When we do decide to buy, half this size is more than plenty big enough. A bigger house is a complete waste of space, and like accumulating clutter -- I mean, possessions -- is more indicative of someone trying desperately to fill a void within that they never can.

Aside from that, a big house does not make a happy human. A healthy, healthfully fed, well rounded educationally & socially, and well traveled one generally does. That's why most Europeans are significantly happier than burnt out Americans slogging through life paying for bigger houses they can't afford to own (let alone pay for the upkeep on) and hemorrhaging money on the unnecessary, expensive social status s# to put in them.

Well being? Who cares. What skill do you have?

Thats obviously the only thing that's of value.

Do you produce a lot of money for me? No. Die

That's the American way, Nordic countries treat their tax cows a little better.
