15. Not a Bad Idea... my kids are now living in Denmark
They both Love and Loved the US, however being
Half/Danes with Dual Citizenship have chosen Denmark for the time.

My Son thinks Canada is a great place for 'the closest thing to Europe
and America after spending the last year in the US.

Opportunity and upward Mobility in society leaves the US in tenth place
in many international studies and I suspect it gets worse everyday.

I almost went to Canada when my draft number came up, had a job,
and connections but didn't..... Almost think it was a mistake.

I like Canadians on the average better than Americans.
Sure, they have their rednecks but at least they are educated....LOL

I do think a Parliamentary government is superior than our system
which has revealed lately the BULLSHIT of the concept of a Senate
