    Mexico always had a …
    Mexico always had a lot of poor. A lot of the poor worked out a small living growing corn & beans. Something Natives have been doing for 1000’s of years any way. NAFTA imported cheap GMO corn from America. Mexico couldn’t compete. Now poor Mexicans want to come to the USA. The people don’t want it. The ownership/ business class welcomed them with open arms. They love cheap labor. The politicians helped make this happen ! The richest 1% get what they want.

    You do realize that …
    You do realize that not everybody is a scientist, right? They cut scientific research every year so I don’t know how you would think it would effect the economy. I personally know and have met highly educated people and they all work by the book without thinking for themselves. Leading to economic failure? Like it is now?

    Good. Good for Obama. Americans need higher taxes. I bet people don’t even pay 30% tax over there.

    withholding …
    withholding information or telling someone how to think is exactly what i thought you meant, both would lead to economic failure, and you wouldn’t have one of the leading scientific communities on the planet. The only part of america responsible for that is those dumbass fundamentalist christians that make up an unfortunate proportion of your population.

    True words, …
    True words, Americans should also takes note from countries outside the US that do things better than the USA. US is big, but as a country it certainly isnt the pioneer of political genius it’s citizens may like to believe. (” ‘MERICA, LAND OF FREEDOM, YEA” etc.)

    nah bro, it’s that Americans have no idea what “left wing” actually means. Your Democrats would be centre-right over here. They’re further right than our designated ‘right wing’ party.

    My country actually is socialist, not some weird US perversion of the word: we pay high taxes and in exchange we get cheap healthcare and education, free water, cheap power etc.

    I came out of my degree with $30k in student loan debt and that’s a lot for me and people I know.

    The US just kind of sucks.

    Great depiction of a run-of-the-mill college zombie. And I went through masters degree which was a lot of work for outdated business concepts. Start a business after high.school, time better spent.

    Thank you…I appreciate that. I’ve gotten nothing but abuse by people calling me a socialist pinko for what I said so some encouragement is refreshing hehe

    Obviously we have a difference of opinions. After I graduate, start designing software for some company, and eventually make 100k+, I think my money will have been well invested in myself. :)

    Trust me, it’s not much better here :). And the corruption is pretty high by my standards.

    BTW – someone flagged you comments as spam (you know, some people cannot produce a reasonable argument, so that’s what they do), so I took the liberty of unflagging them. I hope it worked.
