Oh Canada... Healthcare on a Level With EuropeDexter Phoenix Salem-News.com
I have been to many hospitals in Europe including in England, and there is very little waiting time; the hospitals are clean and modern, so ignore all that nonsense that the anti-free medical care groups have been spouting in the States.
(SALEM, Ore.) - One of the world's most highly developed countries, Canada has a diversified economy that is reliant upon its abundant natural resources and upon international trade.
Canada has a complex relationship with its world wide membership including G8, G-20, NATO, OECD, WTO, Commonwealth, Francophonie, OAS, APEC, and the UN.
Canada has a independent foreign policy, maintaining full relations with Cuba! "hello America!".
Canada also maintains historic ties to the United Kingdom and France, and to other former British and French colonies through Canada's membership in the Commonwealth of Nations. These are very powerful trading countries in Europe, that have some of the most powerful trading punches in the world... especially Great Britain.
Canada is noted for having a strong and positive relationship with the Netherlands and the Dutch, which Canada helped during World War II. Notice how Canada has reached out to the world rather than trying to intimidate it and bully it. Because of this open-arms relationship it has in the world, people tend to want to trade with and be part of Canada, and more so because of this behavior.
They do not try to out-muscle or change the laws and regulations with international trade when they start to realize they're getting screwed over, like the Americans!
Canada is one of the world's wealthiest nations, with a high per capita income. It is also a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the G8. It is also one of the world's top ten trading nations. Canada has a mixed market. The largest foreign importers of Canadian goods are the United States, Japan, and the United Kingdom. In 2008, Canada's exported goods were worth over $443.9 billion.
Now as far as I know, the health care there works just as well and efficiently as in Great Britain. Europe itself has some of the world's most advanced hospitals, and the best medical care in the world... so much so, that many people all over the world are flying over there to get FREE treatment, and you do NOT have to be a citizen, or have your balls put in a vise, because you don't have over-the-top scandalously high-priced medical insurance... before they can say YES to treating you.
I have been to many hospitals in Europe including in England, and there is very little waiting time; the hospitals are clean and modern (so ignore all that nonsense that the anti-free medical care groups have been spouting in the States).
You are also getting checked up by some of the best doctors in the world. Many of them trained in a country that has one of the longest, most experienced medical histories in the world (Great Britain), we also have schools as old as your country (have I got your attention now?). In fact, people are so well looked after in England under our so-called “socialist state”... that the Americans and the Australians are screaming out for our doctors to come over and work for them!
So it can't be all bad having free medical care, that is being paid out fairly by our taxes, not like your overtaxed country that gorges itself on taking taxes from all angles possible, but not in giving it out again to the people that need it. Not everyone has to be poor to benefit from this. There are many unpredictable situations out there that can relate to any class of people, that might suddenly need help and support.
So far since I have been here (in the US), I have not seen anything really go back into the system, apart from the military, government agencies, and the police.
That all sounds very Socialist to me, reminds me of the Communist days... tax tax tax but nothing given back to the people, instead... most of their taxes that were spent on government agencies or any other related departments were used to suppress the people, and to have a firm constant grip on you.
To me that sounds more Socialist than some country TRYING to give help to anyone out there "regardless" of what country you are coming from, or if you are a citizen or not... or if you are rich or poor!. There is NO excuse for America not to be able to pay for free medical care! Come to think of it, that even includes dental!
If Canada decided to stop trading with America, there are plenty of countries in the world it could open trade with. People who think Canada cannot live without the States are hugely arrogant and deeply disillusioned.
Europe is not a Socialist state. We also fought in the Cold War, especially Great Britain, which led most of the effort in Europe. Also I am pretty sure if America thought we were a bunch of black leather jacket wearing, domestic abusing, vodka drinking, shaved-headed socialists, then they would NOT have had us working so close with America on such a sensitive issue as the the Cold War, or even now fighting against the terrorists!
