    Your use of vulgar language, highly emotional words, unfounded accusations, popular demoralizing slang, general aggressive attitude etc., it honestly does not make you look very good. I think its that kind of close mindedness that creates problems for our country.

    I would really like to know where all this hatred you have is coming from?

    I also am wondering why you think anyone who is on welfare must be completely able to work yet does not do so? Has it ever occurred to you that welfare was created for those who have disabilities and or who experience inevitable hardship, who truly need help?

    Just a few thoughts.

    I am impressed with your ability to pick up on this so quickly. Welcome to the forum!

    The U.S. makes some great cars. They are rated right now among the best.

    From your daily practice here at the Court of Debate Politics, and haven't won a case yet! But to be fair, you do number your personal opinions! That's got to count for something, right?

    Right now? Like what years? I ask because in my experience and everyone else I know's experience, U.S. cars aren't that great at all.

    Here's a comparison of health care costs in different nations from 2007. It's only gotten worse since then.

    And take note of how the more a nation pays, the lower it's life expectancy at birth is.
