But then, we get a ton of the liberal tripe thrown in there as well. And why were Americans the healthiest and tallest for so long? That was before all the liberal redistribution went into effect. After taxation and FDR's New Deal went into effect we started losing ground. Like the man says, American Slaves were better off than European peasants. And of course, he has to go on a rant against "income inequality" which Time's writer sucks up through a wide straw. People today amaze me...

The Dutch are, on average, the tallest people in the world and they are very liberal so I don't think politics has much to do with it.
