1. I much prefer my interpretation of Carter. He was right then and even more so after GWB was declared the winner;
2. Bush passed Iraq based on lies to both Repub houses. Even many dems voted for it, were lied to, but that they believed the BS did not honour them for sure. I never did, and neither did + or - 150 out of 195 countries. Health care? Insurance companies, health care providers are lining pockets of both parties. There will never be a real universal health care plan in the US, no matter who is president and what the majority is in both houses. It's a shame because your broken-down system is the most expensive per capita in the industrialized world;
3. NAFTA was not a Clinton thing. It was all agreed to and passed before he was inaugurated. He signed it. NAFTA has so far been great for Canada, but we are starting to pay for it now, and boy, is it gonna be costly in the future;
How could I disagree, I wrote the above on ins companies before even reading your second part.
Jacques you have a preoccupation with the lesser of two evils.

That concept is what both corrupt corporate political parties Democrats and Republicans thrive on.

They use that to divide and conquer the masses.

Smaller Government does not exist in the Republican party.

Single Payer Medicare For All does not exist in the Democratic party.

Yet most of the population still believes Reagan and the Bush's are conservatives and Clinton/Obama are liberals.

We are in a war my friend and WE THE PEOPLE continue to lose while the wealthy few and Congress continue to win.

Indiana’s Anti-Howard Zinn Witch-hunt
July 18, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/md8c4ps
Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States, one of the country’s most widely read history books, died on January 27, 2010. Shortly after, then-Governor of Indiana Mitch Daniels got on his computer and fired off an email to the state’s top education officials:“This terrible anti-American academic has finally passed away.”
But Gov. Daniels, now president of Purdue University, was not content merely to celebrate Howard Zinn’s passing. He demanded that Zinn’s work be hunted down in Indiana schools and suppressed:“The obits and commentaries mentioned his book ‘A People’s History of the United States’ is the ‘textbook of choice in high schools and colleges around the country.’ It is a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page. Can someone assure me that is not in use anywhere in Indiana? If it is, how do we get rid of it before more young people are force-fed a totally false version of our history?”

Bush did everything he could to make the president completely untouchable...Now, Obama has precedent and was in full sprint as he was handed the batton.
Just seems that the more they accomplish...the worse off America becomes.
These two videos proves you 100% correct.

Your statement of: Just seems that the more they accomplish...the worse off America becomes.

That is because the Republican and Democratic parties do not represent average Joe and average Jane.

You have no idea how your conception of how history is taught is in agreement with mine. I first learned Canadian history in Catholic French-language school. Oh boy, were the English and their allies, the Iroquois, the bad guys. Not one good thing about them. I was full of bluster against those damn redcoats and their Indian allies. Then later, I got in touch with the English version of Canadian history. Oh man, those evil Frenchmen Papist Catholics ! And their nasty allies, the Algonquins and Hurons. Needless to say, I was taken aback. With maturity came common sense, I some research, and I'm now more comfortable with what I think is the truth, gleaned through books, conversations, etc. Both sides lied of course and both sides gave what they felt was their version of the truth. Pretty much the same as in your country. One thing both sides pretty much avoided, though, was the god-awful mistreatment they heaped on the native peoples. Right up until the 1950s and oontinuing in a more subtle manner up to today. We treated (treat) our native people like sh*t, still do but assuage our guilt by throwing money at their chiefs, not the peons. We never had many black people up until the early 80s, so we treated them pretty well because their low numbers were not a threat. Now they are more numerous and we're finding out that we've been "holier than thou" when commenting on treatment of blacks by Americans. Yes, we are no better, no worse, than you guys, which is not saying much.

BTW, what is wrong with having many people speaking many languages, as long as they all speak English. I know most birthers like you think that polyglots are communists. Sigh.
The official language of the United States is American English. The official citizenship of the United States is United States citizen. If someone is a United States citizen they can't be a half United States citizen. Our country choose American English centuries ago,that is our language.

Saturday is the Fourth of July, also known as the American holiday Independence Day. I'm American and I think it's fair to say we love the British now--we give British royalty a royal welcome when they visit America--but Saturday is the day we celebrate our independence from Britain, and people often ask me why there are differences between American and British English, so this seems like a good time to answer that question.

Why Do Britons and Americans Spell Words Differently?

The first question is why are British and American spellings different for certain words?

Noah Webster

The first answer is to blame Noah Webster, of Webster's Dictionary fame.

He believed it was important for America, a new and revolutionary nation, to assert its cultural independence from Britain through language.

He wrote the first American spelling, grammar, and reading schoolbooks and the first American dictionary. He was also an ardent advocate of spelling reform and thought words should be spelled more like they sound.

Webster's birthplace helps to tell the story of one man's vision and his impact on American culture. Through the promotion of education, laws, human rights, and language, Noah Webster helped to create a national identity for a fledgling nation. Though he accomplished much more during his life, Webster is best remembered for authoring two of America’s most influential books, the "Blue-Backed Speller" and An American Dictionary of the English Language.

You're right. Mind having your two beautiful nurse girl friends and their world-famous Nobel-prize MD brother check mine out? Maybe they will be able to explain why our life expectancy is 3 years more than yours.

Finally, yes a dirt clod like you is hard to explain. I can't.

I've told you before, insignificant crud. Quit while you're merely behind.
