Move To Canada

Posted 25 April 2003 - 02:07 PM

1 - you can slam bush all you want without fear of arrest
2 - you can slam anyone all you want (especially the current government)
3 - we have a privacy commissioner who actually does his job in protecting us from corporate maniacs
4 - advanced banking (what's with your primitive system anyway? we've had this mastered for a decade....)

those are the four that have come up so far today... i'm sure i'll think of more ;)

surely you are taxed for all that stuff somewhere down the line. So you pay for it one way or another, it's just this way the poor people don't have to pay the same amount as the rich people to receive the same health care. eh?

yeah, we pay higher taxes, generally, than you do.... but then it's (theoretically) more balanced by income, and no one is denied care.

but in some provinces you pay premiums, too, which is a ripoff--supposedly it gives us more benefits than the provinces without premiums. but geez... i HAVE to pay the premium for the provincial health care, no opting out, and it sucks ($40/month)

so there's a reason i didn't put healthcare on my list of reasons to move to canada :P

another thing to add, we have 15% tax and we have all those benifits, the EU (european union for those less educated) has a tax of 19.9% (or is it 19.5%) and they do not recieve even close to the amount of benifits we do. PLUS they use Euros, which is closer to the american dollar (worth more) then my dollar is. Oh, and also Sloth, try going to a police station, or some other facility similar to that and yell that at the top of your lungs several times, you'll have people all over you, over here, nobody would do anything.

Canada is considored somewhat as a communist government because of our health care :)
Some people pay more taxes then others, but we all get the same treatment , (which I personally thing is quite corrupt for numerous reasons).
Just thought id share that

alright lets clear up all this communist mumbo-jumbo

#1 Communism is our friend

We all tend to be afraid of the word "Communism" and where does that fear come from???

well i'll tell you, we were all afriad of Stalinist Totalitarianism, which is almost completely opposite from true communism, Stalin just covered up his iron fisted rule under the semi-Marxist views of Lenin (who was gererally a good guy, but stalin gave him a bad rap), so if a pure communist society were to be put in place it wouldn't be all that bad, if the socio-economical climate of said country had a need for it, ie just as 1910's Russia did

So don't call someone a commie bastard without knowing what communism really is, if you must insult a soviet under stalinist ideals then use stalinist-totalitarianism bastard

#2 Communism wouldn't get such a bad rep if it were spelled with a "K"
