    Welcome to The Real World America.
    All much smaller and relatively homogenous.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Odd, then, isn't it, that the cost of healthcare continues to rise at a rapid rate in all those countries. Good example of a solution looking for a problem to solve while the problem to solve is overlooked.

    I figured my time would be best place in school proving Conservatives wrong about Liberals and Minorities.
