In short, your gloat is vastly misplaced.


I wasn't gloating. I was just pointing out that countries tea baggers and neocons point out as being socialist he!! holes actually have a better quality of life in than in the US. Having been to Denmark and Sweden a few times, it was obvious that that was true. Heck, even Canada now has a higher per capita net worth than the US.

Obviously you agree that the US should adopt some of the policies of northern Europe; universal health care, longer vacations, heavily regulated capitalism, etc to improve the quality of life in the US as well.

If, as you say, the credit goes to US defense spending, then we are idiots. But now that foreign countries can donate heavily and anonymously in US elections, it seems as if they will be able to vote themselves continued US support, much to the detriment of the general population of the US.
