    Not any more. Assimilation died at the hands of the American left. Assimilation was replaced by multi-culturalism. Multi-culturalism means the death of American unity. It is what it is. The past can't be restored.

    Sure. That's not health care though. Try getting them to give you open heart surgery when you have no money. Then get back to me.

    Or forced. Whatever suits the revisionists I guess.

    Re: The JFK poll

    So that we now mostly agree that Americans want their country to do more for them; and, we all believe in our representative democracy where the people's will should guide the nation, then, we should all seek to better understand how our country can do more for its people in a fiscally responsible manner.

    Of course it is health care. And you can't reasonably expect the most difficult and complicated surgery to be free of charge for everyone. The vast majority of Americans can afford to pay for their own insurance and it is reasonable to expect charity to cover the rest. After all, Medicaid is a form of taxpayer-funded charity. It is simply a very inefficient and wasteful charity system.

    Nothing is free. We have tried free in the past 40-years, we have tried programs that shift wealth around like one of those shell games on the promenade... it's why we have 13,000,000,000,000 little problems in less than a half century.

    Also... Why the Pierre Trudeau reference? Really? He was a better leader than any other Canadian PM will ever be.
    Why?
    Because the referencee is fitting. Both are little Red arrogant leftists.
    Of course you would say "he was better than any other Kanuckistani PM"... because you're a Commi sympathizer, and for that bit of honesty in your signature line... I thank you. Most of your ilk on DP cower when confronted with their true selves.

    Well, yes... you are biased, or perhaps blind.

    This is bad news for patients like Jennifer. Today, five million Canadians are without a family doctor. A 2005 survey found that just 23 per cent of Canadians were able to see a physician the same day they needed one -

    there remains a wide divide between the number of doctors and Canadians, national research released Thursday suggested.
