and this bit kind of convinced me to try and get the hell away from the dumbass right-wing Maga worshipping boobs on Central. 45 was president for 4 years - if someone watched that trainwreck for 4 years and were on Central reading all the arguments and still voted for him a second time in 2020 - then you are never going to be able to present anything that will change their minds. So, why bother talking to them? I posted that link before.
You can post it on Central if you like but you won't get anywhere. America is perfect and any criticism makes you a Commie. That's how dumb they are so it's not worth it. Some of those idiots think I hate America because I criticize it - no it's not hate it's frustration because I see Greatness in it - truly awe-inspiring greatness and it is frustrating to see greed and corruption and just plain evil tearing it apart.
I like Canada's healthcare system and I have spoken to doctors who lived and worked as Doctors in both countries. There are many videos too. And I and they noted that if the US adopted the same system - it would actually be BETTER in the US due to America's vast infrastructure already in place. But you have a totally morally and ethically corrupt and 100% completely unnecessary "middle man" STEALING all of your money (Insurance companies)
These HMOs are ZERO Value-added corrupt businesses getting between you and your doctor and serve as your Communist overlords. You and your doctor do not get the final say on your treatment. Instead, this horrible outfit makes decisions in your life and gets between you and your FREEDOM of healthcare.
But good luck convincing the Republicans on this - it's baffling to me because they're known as the party that cares about money money money above ALL else. And yet - it's far more expensive and offers far FAR worse service. Indeed, it causes people to die because they're scared of the bills. And every American who has lived in a well-developed country and sees their systems firsthand change their view real fast.
But I don't get the sense the Trumpers travel much or expose themselves to new ideas - they are the people who vote for people who ban 1984 or panic about books like "my two moms" so there is no point in talking to these people. In real life, I would walk away from them (emigrate to avoid them) or punch them in the face.
In fact it appears Covid is making a pretty strong comeback right now.
Not sure what your point is - Covid has hit every country. Statistically, it has generally been far worse in the US as a percentage of the population.
The US has roughly 10 times the population of Canada. Thus, Canada to be equal to the US should have about 1/10th the numbers.
The US has 83million Covid cases so Canada "should have" 8.3 million cases. (1/10th) but Canada has 3.75 million cases. The US has 1,020,000deaths so Canada should have 102,000 deaths but only has 39,243 deaths.
The USA has 3051 deaths per 1 million people.
Canada has 1023 deaths per 1 million people.
So while Canada has had rather crappy results - it's still about 3 times better/safer in terms of cases and deaths than living in the US.
I live in Hong Kong - where currently we were last month the worst in the world for cases per million and the highest death rates in the world - after 2 years of being near the safest - there are reasons for this spike, however.
Again, well-stated. I've also lived in other countries and have no neuroses preventing me from objectively comparing them to the US. All other countries call it bribery, here it's called lobbying. Once money is allowed free access to political figures, it's really game over.
Canada indeed is far more amenable to my outlook. I spent many years in Minnesota, one half of my family hails from it. At one time, the Midwest was a bastion of liberal, cooperative-farming folks who believed in each other. Now? It's MAGA signs across all rural areas.
Canada has no history of slavery. That poison, today manifested in covert and overt racism, destroys social cohesion among the classes who most would benefit from well-governed health and other programs.
So very well stated.
I'm moving to Canada asap. Canadians are SO politically astute!
