I read the entire thing. Enough bogus info that I don't have time to debunk it line by line. I hope someone else does. Why America doesn't
I've been to over 40 different countries. I've recieved medical care in several socialized systems worldwide. The care is not on par with what we
recieve in the US. Wehn my son had cancer I watched one of the Saudi Princes bring his child into CHKD in Norfolk, VA for treatment. Could have gone
anywhere in the world. He came here. That tells you something when one of the wealthiest humans on the planet comes to America for treatment.
Low standard of living? Almost half of Americans don't pay taxes. You can actually own your home, luve where you want, go to school where you want
and have the job you want, as long as you work for it. That's it.
The problem is moderation as policy leads nowhere. We tolerate everything in this country. You can shoot an American who joins Al Quaeda but the
terrorists get civil trials. It's ok to be anything... Everything is societies fault. He didn't get enough hugs. Let's get a single payer
health system and create mediocrity there as well.
The biggest problem with America is we tolerate mediocrity. We've gone from a group striving to reach great heights to taking care of the stupid and
lazy. The bottom 40% in incomes don't pay income tax yet they complain about tax cuts on the wealthy, the ones who do pay. I don't want to get a
job and stay for 3 months and get insurance, I want the gubment to give it to me. Why should I have to work, extend my unemployment. Do you know how
many flat screen tvs FEMA paid for in New Orleans after Katrina? How many people used their emergency funds for Shrimp?
If you can not have a job and have income, healthcare, housing, food, etc.... how in the hell is that a low standard of living? I've been to India
and China, yea they are better off as a whole, whatever. If I really had to pick another country to live in, Australia would be it.
This country was great when people were allowed to live in poverty. When you make that not an option people lose their drive and determination. This
is a great country because of all the immigrants that came here and busted their ass to build something. Nobody handed them anything. Now we give
everything away. People here take things for granted. They are soft. And it's getting worse. And pretty soon, nobody will hates us because we'll
be just like the rest of the world.
