Yeah but we don't pay 40% income tax and 25% sales tax.
In Denmark, some lazy fuck who won't get a job will still get enough money from the state, while someone who works hard is punished for making more money.
If you're lazy you won't recieve much. The government won't let you starve, but that's about it. Everyone that CAN work will work, if there is jobs avaiable.
If you want a good society it costs. You are so afraid of socialism, yet the more socialistic countries has performed WAY better than USA in most aspects. Ever thought about why there is so much crime/poverty/misery over there? There is a reason why socialism is strong - everyone should have a decent living.
Obama isn't a socialist, heck, over here he'd probably fit best in the liberal-conservative party. He's a white american disguised in a "poor old slaves" body, essentially betraying his own people. Talking about change like a left-wing revolutionary while still playing the game of the big corporations, pathetic. I give more credits to the old-school conservatives, atleast you know where they stand.
