  • I don't agree. But, those who DO agree are free to leave, of course.

    I would call this propaganda more than anything else.

  • Hum nope it is propaganda as 29 said.There is this illusion among some that somehow Europe is all superior some form of utopia and America is just bad bad lol.I really get tired of the jargon myself.I also agree that if one feels that way they should go ahead and go to their imagined utopia if they do not have the funds then save for it just like anything else.I love America myself even with a president and admin who's ideals I loathe at this time.I will stick around because they won't be on the hill forever and we can get down to real recovery of our wonderful and beautiful land America.

    And that is their right! Hope they have fun!!! I know a lot of people retire to Mexico because the cost of living is so much less, but I wouldn't ever say that the standard of living is better there compared to the States.

  • If America is so bad, why do we continue to have people dying to get into this country and before the health care was passed, we had people from other countries coming here to either practice medicine or get medical treatment.
