Here is my take on this comment:
Americans, as we have seen demonstrated here, like to help out but feel their tax money should be theirs to dole out. If they see someone in need THEY want to help personally but don't feel the government should use their tax money to help.
There are even many who don't want government medical, as it is THEIR tax money, but they don't bat an eye at how much of their tax money goes to war and military development. I think THAT'S the part most Canadians just don't get- the military seems to come before health care for your fellowman.
It's not that we prefer our government spends money on the war machine before helping those in need (health care, etc.).
It's simply that, according to our governing document, the U.S. Constitution, our federal government has no legal right to institute federal health care. See the 10th Amendment to the Constitution.
The people that I have discussed the problem with, whom are of like mind, feel that it should be up to the states, should they feel the need, to administer such programs.
Completely separate from the legalities of it, I just don't trust my federal government to run such a program in an efficient, non-corrupt manner. Just look how well they've done with our Army hospitals (google "Walter Reed Army Hospital"), or how well they have done with Social Security benefits.
I'm all for helping those in need. I just don't trust my federal government to take my money and decide how to help those people.
Once again, you don't even make an attempt to understand that which you judge.
As for the rest of our argument:
You made the inferences. The fact that you never came out and specifically said that you thought Canada was better because you don't need guns to protect yourselves, is irrelevant. You just used different words to get there. If you don't like that I called you on it, than you need to make your points clearer.
Explain something to me, if you would, your thinking on this...
You bring up your experience as a security guard to support your statements. This makes your point more valid, I guess.
I bring up my military training to support mine. This makes me a war-mongering, dumbass?!?!
Is this child-like, twisted logic purposeful on your part? Or are you really just incapable of using your brain?
Finally, you need to go read up on what happened at Virginia Tech and read about the professor I brought up. The simple fact that you suggest the professor should have sacrificed the lives of all of his students instead of what he did, boggles my mind.
Even as I type this I find it hard to believe that you really are as stupid as you seem.
