If you're a Canadian why are you failing to take the same side of this debate that I'm taking?...
Your wording alone shows the difference. You seem to assume because we are in the same "class" as Canadians that we are not individuals. The idea that you can guilt me into agreeing with a thought process because of an accident of birth geography is quite frankly ludicrous.
You're a Canadian like me, why do you fail to recognize multiculturalism in action? Why do you insinuate vilification of it? The answer is obviously because nationality means nothing to rational thought, and anyone implying otherwise is a fool.
A hint: Never try to rebut anything I say on Canada/US health care. You'll be walking right into a setup.
That reads like empty ego to me. Boisterous talk like this, and that above, is a perfect example of disconnect from reality. Please seek medical treatment with your nearest Psychologist, the wait times should only be a few months to a few years using Medicare.
Also: I'm far from the only critic of the system who would like to see some reform.
The only rebuttal that need answer to this nonsense is that taxes are roughly equal in the US and Canada.
Only on the federal Income tax level AFAIK. Provincial is generally higher on top of that, as well as other taxes like real estate and sales taxes.
Data: You'll note from 2005-2015 Canadians paid a rough average of 30% more taxes. It's only after Harper's management that things started to settle back down, and with how trudy has been doing things that number's going right back up there and likely going higher. I'm not sure if it's irony that the "happiest countries" you espouse about so much are right at the top of that list.
Meanwhile, the economics of it are something that is not sustainable. It's very likely to drive inflation and taxation up to disastrous levels within a half generation unless there is serious reform. The banks are not the only ones doing that analysis, but they are at the forefront.
The meat and potatoes of "this nonsense" you obviously don't have the attention span or cognitive flexibility to process isn't the taxes; it's the turn around time. Note the "private clinic option" (which had to go to supreme court in relation to various provinces) and how you have to pay exorbitantly high prices, just like in the states(good/fast/cheap: pick only two). Gotta wonder how that stuff is calculated into the figures if it is at all.
I suggest that any further defense of Trump you may have, should be taken to the Trump examination thread.
I'm curious where You get a "defense of trump" out of what I said? I mean, almost anyone could hit ctrl+f and type "trump" and look to see who mentions that name...I'm thinking it was not me? *does exactly that* oh, look 4 instances, all of them in your post. WEIRD. You should probably work on your attention to reality. You keep doing this kind of thing, and it's just sad to see someone deluding themselves and trying to lie and slander others.
