    Functionally it's just like a house.
    I think it's because trailer parks can be the rural version of the ghetto

    I think you are right in a way. There is nothing wrong with living in a trailer if your family is not too big. Its a way for many to start out, or if that is all they can afford. But many rural trailer parks are neglected by the owner of the parks and trailers and often located in areas prone to flooding. This is common method of re-roofing a trailer in my part of the country.

    There was no track to follow because you posted no other country's numbers for comparison.

Does our healthcare cost more, sure, but I have seen the differences and we get a lot more. But unless people actually have experienced that difference or are willing to take into account all factors related to statistics that they see as proving the opposite, they cannot ever see that.
    Thank you for showing us the REAL reason you're against UHC.

    The same thing that's happening in America is happening in Europe, the Globalist traitors are sending all the good paying jobs to corrupt/communist 3rd world countries.

    That's true, but a trailer in and of itself, is not the equivalent of a ghetto.
    It's only when you cram a bunch of them together and they aren't kept up with.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Where did this globalization start?

    OK, don't really know this one. But it was a long, long time ago.

    Who benefitted the most by it for a longtime but now preaches hatred of it because it is nolonger benefitting them?

    US and Europe

    Who parked battleships in Tokyo bay and forced the Japanese to enter the global market?

    The US.

    What nation has never had an isolationist economy and was once undisbuted champion in global markets (some would say still is)?

    The US.

    What nation leveraged political and social changes worldwide by using the global markets and is now the oldest or second oldest (Iceland has a possible claim to oldest) government in existance on Earth today?

    Again, The US. All other governments, with the possible exception of Iceland, have changed forms of government since the American Revolution. However some will argue that in the 1930s, the US changed from a representative democracy to a social democracy.

    Your welcome. Now you know that I am not arguing from any effect it would have on me personally. Remaining with the old way, Obamacare or UHC, none of it changes anything for me. Most of my income comes from disability and isn't taxable, so none of it will even affect my Taxes very much.
