    Those “job creators” are creating jobs in other countries.

    Too bad we live in an environment which makes that so profitable.

    When Clinton was president, there were jobs for people that wanted them. The budget was coming into balance. We didn’t invade anywhere. Welfare was drastically cut back. Crime was down!
    And Republicans hated it. And they vowed it would never happen again. So far, they’ve been very successful.

    With guns everywhere, over 800+ cable channels, and Wall Street calling all the shots now, I wonder if the Canadian government will let me move to Ivujivik?

    And the left say because there is not enough socialism, while the conservative party has been running the country since 2007, 2006. Sweden has been led by their conservative party and are doing great, England is moving to the right and we are moving to the left.

    Further to your average income link, a 2008 study published in MacLean’s Magazine (How Canada Stole the American Dream) also indicated that Canadians are wealthier than Americans as measured by median net worth – 30% wealthier: Canada $122,600, U.S. $93,100. Again, a big difference in wealth disparity – we have fewer mega-wealthy but considerably fewer poor.
    Per capita personal debt: Canada $23,460, U.S. $40,250.
    In addition to reasons cited in your link, Canadians would rather be peace keepers than wage war. The costs of maintaining 1,000 or so military bases world wide and almost continuous warfare are high and the returns lower than peace keeping.
    Canadians are more likely to live within their means. Our Federal government has had more balanced budgets within the last 15 years than deficits and is on target to balance in 2015. The result is lower national debt, lower interest costs, etc.

    Sweden’s Conservative party is more liberal than the far left wing of our Democratic party. They are basically socialist.

    The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty.

    If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class.

    It would be political suicide.

    Before the election, Bill Clinton was saying that he didn’t think the Act was going to benefit the U.S., that it would probably cost us too many jobs. At the same time, up in Canada, Jean Cretien, soon to be Prime Minister was saying the same thing. Both said that if elected, they were going to look it over and maybe make some changes. Both were elected.
    However, soon after assuming their respective offices, both did an about-face and worked hard to push it through!
    It is still my suspicion, my belief, that NAFTA was written by those who wanted it. Bush the First was expected to glide it through Congress into law. But when Bush lost, those authors were alarmed. I suspect strongly that both Clinton and Cretien were “advised” that NAFTA was a done deal, that no amendments were to be made, and that they MUST see it through.
    We were told that NAFTA was to make Canada, the U.S. and Mexico a solid economic block so as to compete with Europe and Asia. Since Mexico’s standard of living would increase, more Mexicans would purchase U.S. made goods, and illegal immigration would soon disappear. I can still see Bush on TV telling us A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS. But, within two years, the NAFTA sponsors discovered that Mexico is still a land of bandits, with a tiny oligarchy, and bribes demanded at every level. Then, the focus shifted to Asia, then Eastern Europe..
    Do you think NAFTA helped the U.S.? It certainly did help the "job-creators!

    Which was still a lot cheaper and less bloody than what we did under Bush. Saddam was contained and had nothing to do with 9/11.

    Umm … NAFTA was spearheaded by George H. W. Bush, and in Canada by Brian Mulroney. Both heads of state were replaced before final ratification.
