    Free shared health care is still a socialist concept..

    I didn't use that line on you.. You don't deserve it yet. Your debating is not pathetic like the one I referred to. Perhaps one of my intelligent answers made you feel pathetic?

    Your clearly understand NOTHING of what I am saying.

    Closed minded-ness is going to be a huge problem the next 100 years, thats my prediction.

    Interesting question, because many Americans use the "victim" card every time someone says someone about America which isn't positive, and always brand it "anti-American", justifiably or unjustifiably. The question really is, do Americans call the "anti-American" "victim" card to easily?
    Not really, Americans i have met in London seem as critical and in some cases more critical of US and its actions than me. They did have a dip for a few years but now its back.

    Fascism is not a ringt-wing phenomenom. Certainly, we have been taught that fascism is right-wing, but that's the results of years of historical revisionism. The origins of fascism as a right-wing ideology starts in the 30s when communists sought to discredit fascists and they attempted to do so by calling it right wing. The only problem is that fascism shares far more in common with socialism and communism than anything on the right.

    This is how it is taught in most introductory college courses. You have to realize however that American Conservatism is much more Liberal than Classical Conservatism (as taught by Hobbes and Burke).
    These are contradictory statements. Yes, we are taught from high school through general survey course work in college that fascism is a right-wing ideology. However, if we recognize that contemporary American conservatism is classical liberalism, then you cannot simultaneously hold that fascism is a right-wing, i.e., liberal, ideology. You just cannot.

    If modern and progressive is to represented by the EU's elitism and attempts to completely undermine democracy and national sovereignty in Europe, well, you can have that modernity and progressivism all to yourselves.

    I note that you still have nothing at all to say about the EU's attempts to bypass national sovereignty and democratic processes in order to impose the EU Constitution on the European people via treaty negotiations. Why not?

    Two completely different issues.

    Universal health care is a socialist model. That doesn't change no matter if you advocate such a model or cite the consequences you perceive from not imposing such a model.
