Why are countries with universal healthcare, common sense firearm responsibility laws and free college education doing better than The USA?

Countries like Canada, Japan, The United Kingdom...clearly 'lazy entitled communists' compared to the Good Ol' Red, White & Blue where pharmacy big wigs have skyrocketed life saving Insulin just because the fckin can.

Update:

Forgot Conservatives don't like legitimate fact.

    Because we have universal healthcare, common sense firearm responsibility laws and free education up to 18. University education isn't free, students have to take out a loan to repay tuition fees, which they do when they earn above a certain amount.

      You are 'out to lunch' aren't you? it's not about your children, it's about educating all those whose skills you rely on.

    Define "common sense firearm responsibility laws". Are you conceding that our gun laws are not based on common sense? We have over 30,000 gun laws in this country. What we lack is enforcement.

    College cannot be "free" unless you expect everyone working there to do so for free. Good luck with finding that many ignoramuses.

    Why can't you pay for your own health care?

    Because instead of a massive military infrastructure that is where their priorities are.

      Canada Population 38 million people. NYC/LA/Atlanta/Philly/
      4 cities eclipse that countries entire population. Amount of
      People to cover becomes a target issue.

    Because they have a much smaller population, fewer people sucking the life out of their FREE STUFF and a much higher Cost of Living and Tax Brackets.

    BUT if you think the grass is greener....go enjoy it.

      Will you get your head round the idea that health care is not FREE STUFF - it is paid for in taxes, but free at the point of service, so no one with a sick child has to ask "Can we afford the Doctor?"

    The United States needs what those countries have that make them better. Not the things you listed but the United States needs a super power that protects the world that is not herself.

    The rest of the civilized world depends on this country for defense and the countries mentioned, in particular. Canada has the best border control in the world, it is called the United States of America. They are only economically successful because of their proximity of the greatest economic engine in the history of the world.

      No, no they don't. Majority of these countries don't want The United States of America acting like the World's Police. And Canada's Border has jacksht to do with The USA.

  • 3 months ago

    please define "going better". Canada's GDP/person, for example is lower than that of the US

  • Any number of reasons.

    Listing random differences does not clarify the issue.

    We could equally write

    Why are countries with prime ministers, no states and a majority of non-English-speakers doing better than the USA?

    Now: I am NOT saying that none of the things you mentioned are related to the matter.

    Also: it's not true that ALL countries that have those things are "doing better than the USA". Quite the contrary!

    Finally: "doing better than the USA" is always easily disputed. Better ***in what particular way or ways***?

    So: please be more precise

    - in describing HOW these things make other nations better

    - in describing IN EXACTLY WHAT WAYS these things make other nations better

    and please consider if it is or is not true that ALL nations that have these characteristics are, indeed, better than the USA in the specific ways you are addressing.

      Although your answer is right on, it's much too intellectual for this forum. Really, to get a Best Answer in this forum your answers have to be on a par with the "Dick and Jane" books of kindergarten.
