Stathis - you are discussing this with completely the wrong attitude.

First, you have to accept and assimilate into the core of your being
that the US has the best of everything in the best of all possible
worlds. And *definitely* better than all these socialist countries
that are destroying themselves because they are not more like the US.

Got that? Now you can start discussing slight improvements (but with
no socialist tendencies) that might help the tiny, tiny sections of
the populace who are not already completely happy with the system.
