Contrary to popular belief, crime DOES pay; that's why people do it. Maybe if the government stopped limiting competition and driving the price of drugs so high, then drug dealing wouldn't be so profitable and gangs would stop killing each other while trying to gain monopoly power over the market. You could easily cut the country's murder rate in half by legalizing drugs.

Our healthcare system is ****** partly because the American Medical Association is basically a cartel of doctors that limits entry into the field, and partly because people's use of insurance on pretty much everything stops people from going and and searching for the best prices (like every other thing in the economy) so there's no incentive for companies to lower prices. Furthermore, people using insurance for everything also contributes directly to the cost because of all the paperwork and arguing between hospitals and insurance companies.

I'm glad we're divided on every major issue because it means people don't just give in to ****** polices. The reason states exist is so that they can do their own thing and the federal government wouldn't have to force a single way on the entire population.
Though the last century, government has been the single most unstable part of the economy. Things are generally better during a deadlock except for the debt ceiling which is just retarded .

Yeah, but if my country is invaded, I would rather have the U.S helping over Canada.

About the gun violence thing.

ets break down the numbers from the CDC

There are roughly 32,000 deaths a year is the US and declining from Gun Violence

60% Are suicides thats 19,200
3% are accidentals that's 960
4% are justified that's 1,280
33% are homicides that's 10,560
80% of homicides are gang related. That's 8,448
>That leaves 2,112 in a society of 312 million people.

>That leaves a 0.00010256410256 chance of death by gun.
>0.000009846153846 if you don't hang out in the hood, are not planning on committing suicide, and not planning a crime.

Again, these are numbers gathered by the CDC. Check it if you don't believe me.

You mean someone tries to make a joke about the other's country and then that person has to be a bitch and talk about why they're better?

US doesn't even rank in the top 10 in gun violence.

We might be able to actually fix our healthcare system if we didn't have to blow half our ******* budget on defense that mostly goes to defending other countries (Like Japan, South Korea, and the whole of ******* Europe as good examples) but no, we foot the bill so Russia/China/North Korea doesn't just ******* steamroll their rivals and you guys get to afford grade A healthcare why people in the US suffer for it.

We're divided over everything because the population is diverse, a country of immigrants from every corner of the earth aren't going to agree even half the time.

Actually price of healthcare in USA is so big because unlike every other country in the world, USA laws are made to protect pharmaceutical profits and not the citizens.
Rest of the first world puts caps on how much a corp is allowed to make from a drug/medical aid. That still allows for massive profits. European drug companies are rich as **** . But it also makes sure that medical help does not become unaffordable.
That's why same drug costs nearly five times more in USA then Canada.
Now add to that that hospitals must take in account that they will never get money for about 1/3 of help they provide because people didn't have insurance or insurance decided not to cover it and they went bankrupt, so they have to raise prices on those that can afford it, which is just not an issue in rest of the first world, you get american health system which costs five times as much as it should.

You do realize that most statistics and rates are expressed in percentages and per-capita numbers, to avoid the exact argument your're spouting.

I'll never understand why people keep issuing canada or any other country in Europe as an example as to why the US should have free health care. Canada and our European allies all essentially make the same income as we do and may even have a same or better budget. The big thing everyone seems to over look is that the US has almost 3-5 times the populations of the countries that have universal health care.

Take canard for example their countries population a little over 53 million ours in the states is a little over 310 million. The only country population wise that comes close to is is France (I think) with 75 million. So yeah maybe if we got rid of over 100 million people we could do it.

TL;DR the US can't have universal health care because it has to many citizens.

Also in HIMYM robin is the first and only one to try and resort to gun violence

He mentions how in the 80's the healthcare system got worse. Forgetting that Margaret Thatcher was in power at the time and ******* hated the NHS (National Health Service) and went through a lot to make it as nonfunctional as possible.

Then he talks about private healthcare businesses being negatively affected. Well yeah they don't have to go into the public sector but if they choose to whatever and it's not even for them it's to help those who can't afford it or just to lower the costs for those who earn less.

The waiting periods in Britain are very low now. But again Margaret Thatcher and the conservatives hated the NHS and tried to privatize it all and until Tony Blair made it incredibly better in a very very short amount of time.
