I'm pretty libertarian but some things should be regulated and maybe medical drugs is one of them.

It always baffles me how some Americans are proud of their "free market" and laugh at "socialist" Europe, yet they have much higher rates of violent crime and people getting into insurmountable healthcare and education debt.
good thing there aren't any crime-ridden and violent "socialist" countries with widespread abject poverty, amirite?

I hope someone shanks him as he's walking to his car. Waste of flesh.

Speaking as someone directly affected by the cost of medication that keeps me alive, yah.

We can compare crime rates and poverty between the US and the European countries in was referring to if you want.

is Europe the only place where there's socialism?
I don't understand the relevance of your question.

We were discussing price hiking of drugs. The US allows it, European countries do not. Some Americans believe Europe to be socialist (hence my use of quotations). I referenced that.

Why would non European socialist countries be relevant to my point?

You are the richest and most technologically advanced country in human history.

Why are you so afraid of comparing yourselves to the rest of the developed world? Why do you think the you're competing against El Salvador or Venezuela for living standards, rather than against Denmark or Australia?

I don't have one. Been a long time since I've looked it up so I posed the question. You responded with a very obviously bullshit graph, don't be sore at me.
Everybody who takes the trouble to back their statements up with something other than the smell of their own farts, you automatically trash it unless it's shilling for right-wing lies.

He provided a graph, that puts him one up on you. You provided absolutely nothing. Luxembourg has the highest murder rate in the world? Its murder rate is significantly less than Canada's is, you idiot clown.
