I've answered these questions from you before many times already. I'll let the following article here this time answer for me-     "One aspect of "American exceptionalism" was always economic. US workers, so the story went, enjoyed a rising level of real wages that afforded their families a rising standard of living. Ever harder work paid off in rising consumption. The rich got richer faster than the middle and poor, but almost no one got poorer. Nearly all citizens felt...
If you can't break down the results of information what's the point in having it?
Why do you? You're supporting Romney aren't you? Support Ron Paul if you think it's theft, otherwise you're a hypocrite.
Americans have much bigger vehicles, consume much more gas, pills and eat far more food, most of it junk food. Wonderful.   When comparing data like this it's also imperative to realise the income distribution. For instance Americas top 1% of earners earn far more of the pie than they do in Europe. These averages don't reflect that, or the higher numbers of people living on very little money. They don't reflect either things like access to healthcare, paternity leave or...
"CEOs' average pay   FACT: Among the 299 companies listed in the S&P 500 Index, the average CEO's compensation was $11.4 million in 2010, or 343 times more than the median pay ($33,190) of American workers. The ratio of CEO pay to median worker pay was just 42:1 in 1980, and is currently 25:1 in Europe."   "those 299 CEOs have a combined income of $3.4 billion per year, which could pay for 102,325 average American jobs."   .....they really care...
On some things like healthcare, they're virtually identical, despite Romney's pandering to the TP's in his party, but there are lots of differences elsewhere. Perhaps we can assemble differences in their positions and policies and discuss them here, so we can compare them more thoroughly and see if we like one over the other more on particular issues?   It still remains to be seen whether Romney paid any income tax for a ten year period whilst he was at Bain Capital,...
Maybe that will work out pretty well for some people-"Over the last 10 years, prescription drug abuse – abuse of medications which are legal for distribution – has become a national epidemic. Prescription drugs now surpass motor vehicle accidents as the No 1 cause of accidental death in almost half the states in this country. Last year, nearly 30,000 Americans died from an overdose, with at least half of these deaths related to legally controlled substances that were...
"1. We spend the most. We spend more than any other country in the world. In 2005, our per capita -- so, per person -- spending was $6,697. The next highest in the study was Canada, at $3,326. And remember -- that's "mean" spending, so it's the amount we spend divided by our population. But unlike in Canada, about 16 percent of our population doesn't have insurance, and so often can't use the system. These facts should set the stage for all numbers that come after: Every...
  These things do matter. It says more about the man than I think you realise.
