    Typical American… you assume every person you talk to on the internet is also an American. How do you know that I don’t already live there?

    But to answer your question, Canada and New Zealand are my first choices, because I’m too old to learn a new language.

    And finally, many Americans would rather stay and fight to improve their country than give up and move somewhere better.

    “they’re unable to attain that kind of perfection.”Yet other countries consistently manage that level of perfection.

    Besides, police killing people is only part of the problem. The complete outrage is police killing people who were completely of zero threat to them. If someone is shooting at cops… well the cops are going to shoot back. But how many white people are shot by cops while they are doing nothing even vaguely threatening?

    You throw around all sorts of stats, but they keep on missing the point.

    Your points continue to be so completely irrelevant it is crazy. Throwing in some sort of bizarre conspiracy theory that a Antifa person snuck in and used the opportunity to place bombs is still nothing but a distraction. If some Antifa person happened to be part of the insurrection, and they got shot in the process, then the response would be exactly the same as this woman. The shooter’s response was acceptable, given the circumstances they were placed under.

    And again “the damage at the capital was minor”… who cares? You don’t shoot someone because they are causing damage. That’s not why this woman was shot. I do believe you already know all of this, but I’m just saying it in case someone is reading and mistakes your ramblings for truth.

    Most comics exaggerate an action for the sake of comedy. Don’t need to take this too literally.

    Typical conservative mindset. You measure the morality of an incident based on the history and “character” of the victim. Rather than the actions and motivation of the shooter.

    Big no from me, and that doesn’t make me a hypocrite. There is a huge difference between the scenarios, and I’m pretty sure you know that.

    Well I guess it depends on how you measure “success”, but for things that matter to me, those countries are far more successful than America.

    And for you to say “if a socialist country is democratic or not” is totally missing the point. Socialism/Capitalism/Feudalism/Communism are economic models. Democracy/Republic/Monarchy/Dictatorship etc. are all power structures. They are different subjects.

    No, it isn’t the action of a stupid person. It is the action of a person who has challenges with impulse control and executive function skills. That has nothing to do with intelligence.

    And kids DO do things like this. Maybe this is an exaggeration, but 6 year old boys can make incredibly poor decisions and not consider the consequences of their actions.

    There are no “socialist countries”, or “capitalist countries”, and I’m not talking about that, so your comment is irrelevant. You are making the “no true Scotsman” argument.

    I’m talking about socialism, which is an economic model, just like capitalism and feudalism. America has some socialist economic policies, and some capitalist policies. So does Denmark, Norway, Canada, England… etc.

    But when it comes to countries that are successful at implementing socialist policies, countries like the ones I named come up. And countries like the ones you named failed… and you know the big difference between them? One group is democratic and the other isn’t… which has nothing to do with socialism or capitalism.

    I’d rather visit Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland, thank you.

    Or maybe spend some time looking at the American Military… one of the biggest socialist institutions in the world.
