One of the pinnacles of Socialist "civilization" - Britain with it's Pinnacle National Health Service, finds that nearly 80% of British citizens among 22,000 polled would Love to take up Vlad Putin's offer of Free land in Eastern Russia. Huh??? Why in the Hell would some of the world's most Civilized and Intelligent (much more than the USA eh wot?) want to give up their citizenship and move lock stock and barrel to Siberia. The British are Very intelligent so they must know that the temps in winter often reach minus 47 degrees Celsius in that area. Eh WOT? Why in the hell would 80% of brits living in the land of the pinnacle of civilization with free health care for all want to chuck it all and move to Siberia, where Russia used to send its citizens/soldiers for punishment. What the Heck is going on???
While you ponder that, let my point out that Junior Doctors in the UK are on strike and are not even working in situations of Emergency Care now. Bear in mind a Junior Doctor can be a doctor for up to 14 years. Many say that with the new pay and hours dictated upon them by their Nirvana socialist government, they can't even afford to keep an apartment in London. A doctor can't afford a freaking apartment.
The Hell You Say ! What? Trouble in the land of Paradise of free shit and SOOO much better than the USA Right? What's going on? What the hell? They're not even allowed to have GUNS over there (never mind they are # 1 in Europe for violent personal crime and # 2 in the WORLD, but hey)
The NHS also has a GOAL of getting patients into hospital within 18 weeks. Which means they are not meeting the 18 weeks by from a little to a lot. Who know, they don't report that statistic. You might want to look into that. You might wonder what it's going to be like in the USA when your doctor is on strike and you couldn't get into a hospital for 18 freakin weeks regardless. It's coming if obammycare isn't repealed and think things are OK with obammycare so far? Haha, it hasn't been implemented more than about 20 % yet and if you are contributing to Your HC ins, you surely noticed all of the associated costs have tripled since the imbecile was voted into the white house twice. And your services have been reduced as well. But it's freakin Great right? At least it's not contributing to Climate Change. Or is it, with so many people having to work harder to make ends meet, they are breathing harder at the least and many are working two jobs and therefore driving twice as much creating all that more CO 2. Good God who will save us?
There is a lot more I'd like to stuff in here, like how much life sucks these days in just about any EU country if you're just a normal citizen/Subject of a socialist regime but your time is valuable, and hey, if this subject interests you, doing some research on your own will provide you benefits beyond your wildest dreams. Imagine being able to discover truth without 'the media' spoon feeding lies to you day and night.
So, what you ask are the merits of socialism? Well they're aren't any.
