    I just don't know why socialists have to cloak themselves in liberalism - it just gives liberalism a bad name.

    In my mind there is no difference between a real conservative (republicans are a different story) and a classical liberal in US politics.
    Look at it this way- liberals fought the Revolutionary War, conservatives moved to Nova Scotia.

    Also, the population of Canada is 30 million compared to the US which has a population of 300 million.

    Not to mention we don't have a single payer system.
    Our healthcare system works on priority those with serious health issues go first. It greatly depends what it is Quebec just so happens to have a fairly large amount of specialists to deal with those problems. European countries have it and they have larger populations you just need to scale up. You may have more people who need healthcare but you also have more people to provide that care.

    No it wasn't - It was Bill Clintons revisions of the Community Reinvestment Act (forced lending to individuals that could never pay back their loans). Of course there were other factors like Wall Street unhinged, and the fact every time Bush or any republican or democrat who addressed this insanity was shot down as a "racist" for attempting to turn the ever flowing faucet of lending off.

    I know exactly what caused the market crash. Democrats put it in motion and republicans for the longest period of time did nothing to stop it..

    Yeah right, a buddy of mine went on a hunting trip up to Canada and got his arm half severed and had to wait 3 hours to see a doctor.

    Classical liberals fought tyranny, fascism and the idea of big government/monarchies and modern liberals have become tyrannical fascists that adore big government and only wish Obama was a king.

    Well how far away was he form a major hospital? He would get treated first before others unless whatever rural hospital he went to did not know what to do and either had to move him or bring another doctor.

    Reagan crated the mentality, Clinton passed it, and Bush did nothing about it. I would say both sides are responsible.

    That's just a misuse of the term, 'liberal'. People who 'adore big government' aren't liberals, no matter what they or anyone else says.
