    Under certain circumstances, yes.

    I know you were kidding but my uncle from Montana did benefit from the NHS during a visit to the UK.

    Kind of. A lot of American politics and government is inspired from the British system.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    In the respect that our founding ideas and documents were primarily conceived and written, with current (at that time) English law and standards in mind, yes.

    Hell no! We use proper English, have better sports, much better food, and in general are better civilized.
