    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Speak for yourself.

    You do not need to be ahead of time to have intellectual opinions on something like this topic..

    This is so old, perhaps you ought to brush up on your knowledge about France to understand how it is a much greater country than the US in many ways.

    You typically do not know anything else about France than you need to throw that line out every time France is mentioned on this forum? This doesn't go for you alone, but obviously several people in this thread and many people on this forum. I believe you would find some studies on French society quite interesting and enlightening.

    You're right.
    Now_ please tell me in what ways France is better than the United States. We can go ahead and eliminate the idea the France is better in anything to do with military (which almost includes all technologies). Enlighten me.

    According to many "stats" and living standard studies France is the best country to live in. Socialism gives the French people quite a lot of freedoms and a more relaxed lifestyle, the state pays for a lot of things that are unheard of in the US and even other European countries. The French work less than most other countries, yet are most effective per hour worked. The French lifestyle I think is something that many people would appreciate if they tested it. France is quite technologically advanced btw, but nowhere near for example Germany or the US. But not everything is about technology is it? The French have average faster broadband connections than people in the US btw, and higher speeds than Germany, just to mention that.

    What I am referencing is a lot of different tests, even tests thrown in my face that is suppose to prove something about the US vs Germany for example, and also things that I have picked up on various forums, in news and when reading statistics. So in general I would say the French are very well of, rich people with an enormously comfortable lifestyle and a good state that takes care of them.

    Actually, the State doesn't pay for anything, it just redistributes money that it extorts from productive people to less productive people. The nature of socialism leads to inefficiency. Compare the economic performance of France to the US and, say, Sweden, from the start of the Reaganomics experiment up to 2003.

    real GDP/Capita in US in 1980 = $21,335.54
    real GDP/Capita in France in 1980 = $16,217.39
    real GDP/Capita in Sweden in 1980 = $17,164.86

    French incomes are 76% of American incomes in 1980.

    real GDP/Capita in US in 2003 = $34,223.17
    real GDP/Capita in France in 2003 = $22,867.27
    real GDP/Capita in Sweden in 2003 = $24,498.12

    French incomes are 67% of American incomes in 2003.

    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in US = 60.4%
    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in France = 41.0%
    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in Sweden = 42.7%

    Socialism is making the French poorer, in comparison to the US, over time.

    Yea but considering that the US growth was fuelled by getting into massive amounts of debt (personal and state), then I would not really brag about it
