    This thread is destined to become a forum battleground. I can see it now.

    So, I donated $50 to Bernie Sanders. Because I love a good lost cause.

    My Facebook feed is blowing up with Bernie Sanders. So far he seems pretty fantastic.

    Just move to America!

    Edit: Just move to the United States of America since Canadia is already a part of America technically...

    Tyler has it better in Canada than here. Taxes are high but free healthcare? I would be willing to get stabbed over there.
    And it is beautiful.

    But if we elect Bernie Sanders and reform healthcare even more, maybe then we can all have free healthcare in the U.S. :')

    It will take time.. A lot of time. Lots of republicans in government right now, which is scary. I'm in the medical field so I can tell you right now that I'm very skeptical, but appreciate the statements he's making. They are well intended. I have to read more up on him, but whoever it is - I hope they can learn to work with republicans.

    Can I also say that Obamacare is amazing.

    for real it's hard to even imagine paying for health care, I'm on extended plan through my job so I have it very lucky. i do hope free public healthcare is an imaginable thing in the near future for America.
    THEN after that we should talk about attrocius tuition rates for post-secondary education.

    My family in Denmark told me my cousin goes to college for free. She even gets money for it.
    I am buried in student loans. I never felt true heartbreak until I heard that there are countries that offer college education for free. Not that having a degree helps these days... But I can't cut someone up legally unless I have a degree, so for me it does.

    Said in another thread, but there is nothing free from the government. You'll pay for that healthcare one way or another. Upfront or through taxes.

    I mentioned that taxes are high. In case you didn't see the connection, that is what I was referring to.

    I'm mobile at the moment so I did miss you saying that. Too many americans don't realize, though, that these other countries have citizens that have paid in their whole lives for this "free" stuff.
