It's amazing the kind of self-delusion people will put themselves through just to cling to an ideal or belief that they feel they MUST subscribe to...

Canada's economy is doing pretty well compared to ours, BTW. Sure am glad I sunk a ton of money into Fidelity's Canada Fund a few years back."
Hey, don't get me wrong, I love the notion of "free" healthcare, etc. Unfortunately, I'm also grounded in reality and know that there is no such animal.

EDIT: BTW, I'm glad Canada's economy is doing well compared to ours - it's a relief to know that all those Canadians that come south for healthcare here as opposed to waiting 9-12 months (or longer) within their "free" system to see a doctor can actually afford it.
