I'm of the opinion that taking care of a countries people is the role of its government, if you know better than you take care of the little guy, he may fish your daughter from the river so to speak.....a country united is a much stronger result in the end is my opinion....but I get caught up in the little details(and yes this is at the expense of our collective)
The one strongest thing living here has taught me is unity. I love my country as I'm sure you do as well, but freedom of choice...movement etc.....I dunno I guess I have always looked at this place I live in as the land of the free.,...nothing but wide open spaces and folks that care for one another.

"" Is the Preamble to the Constitution a declaration of Socialism? "" .....
it depends on the *Definition* of "Socialism" at the time vs. today's definition.
The Preamble was pre-Marx.
Not necessarily. Of course, the original constitution was aimed toward land owning white males so it really doesn't matter what their intent was, it was self destructive because of the hypocrisy...

Do you think size of population has influence on whether the social democracy works? What about geographical size? I'm not sure the U.S.A. could actually work effectively the same as Canada.

Well, the constitution is chock full of implications(women don't exist for instance) but here is a more obvious portion which is the fugitive slaves clause of the 4th article:
There are others, really, just read through the thing and you will find implied and as stated above obvious exclusions etc.
