Sleeplessly, I had to leave the morning after the election and couldn't get my internet connection to work in the hotel Delta Centre Ville in Montreal.
SHEEZ, my Canadian cousins (Mom is an Acadian from Nova Scotia) are totally wacked out by our glorious elections. Everywhere I went, as soon as they found out I was an American I heard expressions of incredulity and outrage. The entire Socialist world is angry and upset at us "stupid" Americans.
However, being half French Canadian and a certified lover of that delightful country, I found myself being much kinder than I would be with my American Lefty friends.
I took the position in my responses that they couldn't think any differently given that their news sources are so totally and completely slanted against Republicans and all other non-socialists. They are basically ignorant of how the US really works and how we are so much more successful than they are in every measurable way.
Because of our Republican Party we -
1 - have much better health care than they do,
2 - have 50% higher disposable income per capita on average than they do,
3 - have twice the living space per capita than they do,
4 - are much more entrepreneurial than they are
5 - and, most importantly, we are a much more high achieving population than the under-achievers in Canada and Socialist Europe.
Is there any wonder that the Socialist dominated media in America, Canada and Europe can't afford to tell the truth and thus condemn their readers to a life of ignorance, relative poverty and spiritual emptiness?
Pity the fools, for they are blind to reality.
