    You go, those other countries exhibit the same totalitarian tendencies that you exhibit. In America we have free speech. Don't like it? TOUGH. Go to your safe space snowflake.

    Your problem apparently Isaac, is that you only value free speech so long as it is free to agree with you.

    You can't follow a thread. Go reread and try again.

    The EU has the same principle, sort of. If someone is dissatisfied with a court decision at the highest level in their country, they can appeal to a European court. And there is a European parliament.

    The problem with such an approach is that the whole is weaker militarily and politically than a stronger central government.

    After the war, that is probably what will happen.

    The red states are welfare states. Who's going to support Louisiana, Arkansas and Kansas? They'll have to pay their own way.

    When the spigot is turned off, the takers will quickly flee to the "countries" where "free money" will continue to flow.

    You are the one who expressed discontent with the United States and yearned for the "sane reality" of the "rest of the world", so your ridiculous retort is meaningless. No one was infringing on your "free speech", nor have I exhibited any sort of totalitarian tendency. Your silly statement just shows you're really just trying to denigrate your fellow Americans and are an excellent example of the south end of a north-bound donkey. Feel free to continue whining, though...it made me laugh.

    Left wing nations wouldn't be perfect, but they would have human rights and acceptance for all. Everyone would have healthcare. People would be equal, compassionate and nobody would have to worry about who they are.

    Right wing nations would be authoritarian Christofacist third world countries with an oligarchy system.
