I seriously wish there were more Canadians weighing in here. Pretty much any people I ever talk to from "socialist" nations like Canada love their health care and say that its only stupid American right wingers portraying them as waiting months for care or all these other misconceptions. Most recent was a chick me and my fiancee were talking to online and thinking of meeting up with in person. After a month or so of talking to her off and on I asked about healthcare and she said that even with having not 1 but 2 freaking autistic children she had never had a problem and thanks God she isnt in the US where she would be saddled with debt and little to no help for her two sons.
Also I love how double sided people are here. Conservatives say the government can run anything well...but yet if a liberal says the military has done anything wrong they go off the deep end. People like Tivo and the topic creator would rather twist the truth and quote what they have heard from Sean Hannity vs actually getting out there and talking to people or reading something worthwhile.
Again if you want to hear what some of the great minds have to say from US residents to people from other nations, from those on the right to those on the left check out foreign affairs journal.
