Do most Americans have any idea what it is like to live in Europe? Due to Entitlements they have Basic comfort but the trade off is atrocious. High prices on everything from gas, to food, to clothes and housing and products. Living with basic comfort gives you no innovation,no ambition,no desire to achieve and when you get the idea in your head to achieve, the gov. treats you with drugs to tamper the urger's down. There is no competition and you are always discouraged. It is very boring to live in Europe. The living conditions there are horrible. They have small living spaces with no closets, no bathroom cabinets. They have no clothes dryer, why? Because of the cost in energy, no space to put one and it's not enviro friendly. They dry their clothes inside their small apartments most of the time because of the weather and it takes 10 hours for them to dry. They have no carpets, just rugs They have small refrigerators like the ones used in college dorms. They have no A/C or ice makers. The plumbing sucks. They have no screens on their windows because their windows can swing 360 degrees. Bugs fly into your place. This is the results for being taken care of by the government. Why would any American want to live this way? Freedom is much better than government taking care of you from cradle to grave.
