RE: How funny it is, that the only people who extall the "virtues" of socialist syphilis don't live under it

100:1 evidence please. Which countries to which countries. America doesn't keep track of those statistics with any degree of accuracy. I have met many Americans abroad - I have yet to meet a single one of them who wants to move back to the US.

The problem with the dopey argument is that many Americans buy into the bill of goods ra ra sis boom ba you're either with us or against us brainwashing from cradle to grave. They don't GO ANYWHERE and see anything so they sit and watch Fox News tell them that everywhere else is bad.


America has a nasty little policy of double taxation on world income which many other countries do not have. When I teach in Hong Kong I pay only HK income tax - not Canadian income tax. An American pays both which limits his earning power and thus lessens the desire to work abroad.

The dire situations in Mexico - well sure the USA looks pretty good in comparison. They'll come in droves. It's not like they can afford a plane ticket to fly to Denmark - but they can walk to the border for free.

Different countries have means tests to be able to immigrate. For example - my Qualifications allow me to teach in most US States - an American teacher's qualifications are "lesser" and they can't get a job teaching in Canada without taking several more courses at a Canadian University.

So there is a better chance that a Canadian Teacher would emigrate to the States than the other way around. But the only reason they would move to the States - is for employment. I know several - they all wanted to and or have moved back to Canada.

Lots of Americans move abroad and lots of people move to the States.

The argument of immigration is a red-herring. Jobs, geographic location, weather, marriage, religion impact immigration. Since many Americans live paycheque to paycheque and have no education they may want to move but can't. They do not have the means.

But you didn't address the fact that there isn't the slightest sign or hint of fascism in any of the countries I listed which would ALL be vastly better for a middle-income earner. The country that has been closest to fascism has been the USA for the last 4 years. The Capital was a pretty big alarm bell.

You watch a lot of holocaust films - I guess you only watch movies "skin deep" like the cinematography - you sure as shit didn't learn anything watching Trumpism grow its fascist head.
