If more people traveled there would be less naive and arrogant attitudes toward the rest of the world.Idiotic notions like that people are less free because they have nationalized health care would be dispelled.Go to Amsterdam and tell me they are less free!
Who is saying that nationalized health care makes you less free? My fear is simply that it will become another inefficient agency run by politicians.
I don't think that calling our nation the best in the world is BS or arrogant. Sure, there may be individual aspects of other systems/countries/cultures which are better than ours, but I think that on the whole we've got the best thing going. This is not to call other people "worse" than us.
I have yet to see anyone who has threatened to move to another country due to an election result follow through on their highly publicized "threat".
