they have their own immigration problems. i wouldn't wish that on them.
something else came to mind though. i don't care what other countries choose to do. we can use them as an example, good or bad, and we can learn from what they have done. if Canada, with a population a fraction of ours, wants to provide universal health care, fine.
we should give some thought to what our own country is about. we threw out the Brits to get rid of an oppressive government. we decided we did not want to belong to the government, but wanted the government to belong to us. we have the right, and even the duty, to control and if need be throw out, our government when they do not do what they are supposed to do. this way of thinking was unique in the world at the time, and still is the exception rather than the rule.
just as a wife or child will suffer abuse because they are dependent on the abuser, we risk suffering abuse at the hands of the government if we are dependent on them for retirement, housing, or health care. how do you maintain control if you can not survive without the largess of your government?
if our health care system has problems, we need to find solutions to the problems. the government never has been, and never will be, the author of those solutions.
