SMF - Just Installed!
Our crime rate, including murder, is higher, mostly due to the War on Drugs. We also have more traffic accidents. These things and more pull down our average life expectancy and have nothing to do with health care.Do they also use infant mortality? That's another bogus criteria. We count infants born with fatal conditions; other countries don't. Additionally, our health care system, being BETTER (in every way other than economic), brings more babies to term that would have died in the womb. Obviously, these babies are going to have a better chance of dying than normal, healthy babies. I tried to explain this to a socialist woo once, and he tried turning it into an issue of abortion!
