    We could learn a lot from Franco's Spain.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I voted for all of them except elections, which I think are pretty good here though they certainly could be improved.

    I think elections could definitely be improved upon by limiting campaign lengths, limiting the effect of money on candidates, offering more real options to choose from, enacting National voting standards, and increasing voter turnout. There's a lot of countries that are good at one or more of these.

    Dude, I live on Texada Island, off the west coast of Canada. I ain't moving.
    I I go to the city, it's Vancouver I'm headed to. Number 3 on the 10-best list behind Melbourne and Vienna. It's a mystery, the criteria you apply and decide the US is the best country to live in- it's too risky to go out your door unarmed, I hear.
