    You obviously missed my very first post. I RATHER stay here, but they don't make the choice easy. Canada, which is what I posted as an alternative, may be more socialistic in base but with a lot less government involvement in personal lives.

    And paying more and more for it, because I consider the government to be very inefficient at it.

    Immigrants AND attack, separate items, usually separated by the word AND or OR. As in protected from.

    No one is responsible for my care other than me. And I have squirreled away, barring a catastrophe, enough to see me in into my first years of 'retirement'. If SS and MCare still exists, bonus. If not, then lifes been a hell of a ride.
    Didn't say Germany, and I wouldn't go there if I were to have to make a decision.

    Have I ever said we do not need a government of some sort? Do please quote it, I'd be intersted in seeing it.

    See comment above.
    Don't dodge the issue, first you claim corporations don't pay taxes, they pass them on. THEN you claim they won't because of market pressure....this isn't about what I want, it is about you saying two completely different things on the subject of corporate taxes.

    Please explain how Canada.gov doesn't get into personal lives?

    You still haven't explained what you mean by attack... try at least 3 complete sentences on the subject of attack.

    Funny thing about many me the people folks... barring catastrophe... there is the simple reason why we have a social safety net. I'm fine with anyone not wanting it under them, and smile when the 'first few years' of retirement are covered. Good luck with that.

    I enjoy the constant drumbeat of gubmint inefficiency, some who beat this gong refuse any thought of overhauling the military- cut it's budget and we become a second class power! Others are right now in another thread complaining how PRIVATE SECTOR charities are vastly inefficient. Not sure your money going to private charity does any better than what the Gubmint does. Having witnessed the MILLIONS spent by corporations on 'upgrades' that end up dying a slow death... Agilent, HP, Microwarehouse, Northrup Grumman, now QVC. millions spent, often the project aborted and the cobbled together temporary system becomes THE operating system and the consultants make a sweet profit.

    face it dot.gov has no monopoly on snafus.

    Again, you attempt to move the discussion... my point isn't NO Government but where does 'ME the people' draw the line on where Gubmint operates and how much does it get to do so?

    You complained of forced and slavery....as if that is what is going on, obviously you don't know what slavery truly is, you fail to admit WE the people fought Japan, Germany, and Communism with a conscript army.

    I like the people, I even have investments in Canada, but your weather stinks.
    Cold is the curse of Canada.

    Our weather is awesome, I'd rather be in -30 than +30, America is way too warm. Anything above 25 and I avoid going outside at all costs. If you want warmth, live in Vancouver. It has the perks of Canada with the warmth of the United States.

    We get +30 temperatures here in summer just not all summer long And yes it is too hot above +25 but I hate the -30 as well. Actually i really hate +5 to -5 as everything tends to get wet and mushy/muddy/slushy etc. so I guess Im a +6 to +25 or a -6 to -20 person.

    Not possible.
    Anything below 60 F is too cold.

    30 C is a nice summer day, not hot in the least.

    I'd rather be cold it seems easier to get warm on a cold than to get cool on a warm day. Sure we get +30 but it's never continuous.

    Vote and discuss.
    I want to live right here in the good old USA. Always have and always will. Best place on earth!

    I turn the air conditioner on full blast and stay indoors, so do most people. Actually at 30C Toronto issues an extreme heat alert and people are advised to stay inside.
