Canuck tells the truth

CANADA HAS socialized medicine. It works well at times and at other times, it does not. Leftist Americans are fond of pointing to Canada as something to be copied, healthcare-wise. Those same people enjoy citing Sweden’s “democratic socialism” as worthy of imitation. Bernie Sanders is one of those people. He is a dim bulb.

I have addressed Sweden at least twice in the past. The first time was in 2016 when the disastrous effects of open borders was addressed. That is worth revisiting. More recently, I looked at Swedish socialism, which is a myth. You can revisit that right here.

Open borders has been a disaster for Sweden, and their socialism doesn’t exist. They did give it a relatively brief try years back till they realized their error and corrected it.

But today’s topic is healthcare, specifically Canada’s. The Canucks have one sort of problem with healthcare, and the United States has another.

As I’ve mentioned often, Mexico’s healthcare system is the superior of the three. We have a government-run system, which serves poor folks fairly well, and we  have a private system, which is excellent, but you must pay, but not nearly what you pay above the border. Our government system has worsened since the nincompoop, populist president who goes by AMLO took office 16 months ago.

And quite a few lower-income Mexicans use the private system. That’s how inexpensive it is, thanks to competitive capitalism.

AMLO vowed to give us a system like Canada’s. But what he’s given us so far is a worse government system. The private system still works nicely, however.

Our detention center

Outside Mexico’s nasty detention center in Chiapas.

AFTER PRESIDENT Trump put the fear of God into our nincompoop president who’s known by his initials, AMLO, Mexico ceased to be such a straight-through conduit for illegal aliens coming from Central America bound for the United States border.

Many are currently housed in a miserable detention center in Chiapas while their requests for asylum in Mexico pass through a labyrinthine process that is not intended to be smooth. Mexico clearly wants them to go back where they came from.

And that is what they should do.

Asylum from what? Lousy economic conditions. That’s what.

I sympathize with these people. There, but for the grace of God, etc. There is no easy solution to their plight, but ignoring laws and sneaking into another country is not the answer, and that is exactly what they planned to do on the U.S. border, and what they’ve done for decades until there were so many illegals that Americans had it up to here, and that led, to a huge degree, to Donald Trump’s winning the presidency.

It was likely the main thing that installed him in the Oval Office. That and his fun, no-nonsense, personality. If you’re an open-borders advocate, you’ve got yourself to blame for the Trump presidency. The culprit is you, amigo.

America simply cannot toss open the door to the world’s poor. It is a noble aim — Christian even — but an absolutely unrealistic one. The American taxpayer is not the disorganized world’s sugar daddy.

But America was built by immigrants, you say! Quite so, but during the days of Ellis Island they came legally, and they supported themselves after settling somewhere. Today’s much-used buffet of taxpayer-funded social programs did not exist. This is a crucial difference.

The blessings of Trump

I BRING THIS to you as a public service.

If you’re already a Trump fan, it will just reinforce your wise choice. If you’re not, then it will just twist your knickers! So this video is dual-purpose.

Enjoy.
