No mortgage crisis and lack of affordable health care here

Possibly '.. first female prime minister (Mona Sahlin) opposes trickle down economics, and says it widens gap between rich and poor..'

nice try, but many Swedes are opposed

What, I wonder, is going on over there across the pond? England, France, Germany and now Sweden, all running to the right and running away from failing Socialist economies. Do you think they're on to something?

Wait a minute. I thought Sweden was the poster child of what is wrong with socialism. Now you tell me that it is center right and the only European country not in debt? Maybe we need to be more like Sweden. I am writing Obama right now and applying for the bikini team czar job.

They are big time. I have a friend who emigrated to Denmark and a friend who lives in Britain at this point, yes, they are RUNNING from a democracy run like a socialist state. Denmark's gov't is closing schools, cutting back on what you can get for gov't health care, etc. A lot of people buy private insurance so they can get health care because the gov't is seriously telling people they cannot get care for things due to age, etc. There is even talk of mandating that all immigrants buy healthcare before they become citizens. The people have been screaming for years that this socialism will bring them down and it is. The pols kept telling them that they know better than the people and have slammed them.
