France has staggering tax loads on middle class folks. gas, is ,what , $8 or $9 gallon by design (taxes).

Public transit is very good and fairly inexpensive. Not so in the US.

People live in smaller houses crammed together for the most part.

No surprise. France has a relatively large population compared to its land area. And it has been inhabited for millennia. The US has only been occupied by a growing population since the 15th century.

Entire parts of cities now are run by islam-oh gangs and gangsters unsafe to even drive it.

Same thing in many US cities--just different gangs or groups.

Companies are fleeing and jobs are vanishing with the high taxes and low productivity.

Just like the US. LOW taxes and HIGH productivity in the US--yet companies leave. So, it is NOT taxes OR productivity. Let's see if you can figure out the real reason. I know it.

It's slowly self destructing under the 'socialist' model.

The US is more rapidly self-destructing under the capitalist model.

The 'rich' are moving out of the country.

The "rich" have been moving out of the US for decades AND renouncing their US citizenship as well.

that healthcare isn't free.

The high taxes go to educate their doctors so they don't graduate with $300,000 in debt.


Of course. But the public knows what they pay for healthcare is actually going FOR healthcare--and they are the beneficiaries of that care. That is NOT true in the US.

France is on the path to socialist failure.

Chile is the poster-country for failed capitalist-based retirement systems. Want ANOTHER fee with that?
