    But, but, but, but! Most Americans have always condemned Canada as being too socialist. We've even been called commies and pinkos and all kinds of things for our stance on providing social platforms for our people. Now I have something to damn well say about this! Why, Americans on this very forum have said they hated Canada because it was too socialist, so there.

    This is clearly the result of capitalism with a good healthy mix of socialist policies which Canadians demand. As I've said about a dozen times to you merkans. Now don't you dare trying to tell us that we are more right than the US!

    Hahahahaha! Talking to Americans!

    Geez I hope Obama doesnt push that crap on us. Thanks for the post.

    so its kind of like this, if you want to be a lazy bum you get all the health care you want for cheap and if you actually do something with your life you have to pay out the @$$ for the same medical attention?

    oh joy!


    Is there a stat on how many canadians come to the US for medical care?

    US corporate taxes are high compared to other countries, and should have been done away with completely, but there's only so much you can expect when a conservative gets elected only every 60 years. Obama, of course, with Jimmy Carter advisors on his economics team (!:D) promises to raise corporate taxes, income taxes, and capital gains taxes.

    Good one gensen! She must be an American eh, considering that Canada is more capitalist than the land of the gun now?

    I keep trying to tell you people that the US brand of capitalism is corrupted and the reason is because you don't know how to combine sensible social policies and social platforms with capitalism and make it work. You will because this topic alone shows that Americans are beginning to come to their senses out of sheer need to change. If you don't then you are toast.

    Don't be so cranky about this gensen, I can't see your red face and I don't even know who you are except to know that you're a stubborn extreme capitalist who is about to pay the price along with the rest of his cuntrymen.

    And did you hear that real estate has taken another big drop and the process isn't slowing down, it's speeding up?

    Not time for me to get into buying up the spoils yet! Could be never unless you can buy a house and have it delivered to Canada or buy one and demolish it for scrap building materials. Some of those big 10k square foot babies which were owned by rich rightie Americans could have some furnishing and such which could make them worth say 10 cents a kilo.

    If this topic says anything, its that America needs to lower taxes... becuase the Democrat's have raised them too much... and plan to raise them more, and more, and more...

    Of course that's the problem gensen! You've had a rightie pres and a congress which has bene kept under control by the right through Bush's abuse of power and yet the Dems are still to blame for the mess your country is in now. And the people are mad as hell and are going to elect a Repub pres and a Rrepub congress in November and everyone will live happily ever after.

    Europe has lower business taxes than the US, too. They make up for it with obscenely high income taxes.

    But Canada is not conservative in any reasonable sense of the word. They throw conservatives in jail for speaking ill of homosexuals, for God's sake.

    Your level of intelligent discourse has plummeted with alarming speed.

    What price is that? My stock portfolio is through the roof this year, as is other outside income.


    Right, I suppose all rich people are righties. Add to that, us "rich" people are in no danger of losing our house.

    Good grief Rob, I'm a wealthy leftie myself if you want to consider me a leftie. I'm soooooo confused now because you American righties are saying that Canada is more right than you are. We need to do some work on that Rob. We'll get Andy back into it tomorrow perhaps after his punishment for lying has expired.

    As we should with intolerant bigots, mostly living in Alberta.

    When you cons get it all figured out let me know and I'll see if I can come up with a good argument.
