You are the typical American moron. I have a preexisting medical condition and would love to have socialized medicine that Europeans take advantage of. Believe me, I wouldn’t mind paying more taxes if it means a better quality of life. Europeans enjoy their life because they can. We can’t. They get top-notch medical care, good schooling and plenty of R & R. Americans work till they drop dead of a heart attack. Your ethnocentric attitude is scary. Socialism does not = communism. Socialism means the country takes are of its citizens. If you haven’t noticed, America is no longer #1 country. American kids score the lowest in test scores, we have tons of homeless people and no universal health care. Those are not good stats. Developing nations are catching up to the U.S. and the way things are going - you will probably work for an Indian or Chinese.
