    Their citizens DO pay...with higher taxes. Why don't people get this. There is nothing 'free' here, just a different method of payment and a more reasonable one.

    Collectivist fallacy, non sequitur, assuming what is in issue = you don’t understand what you’re talking about.

    They do pay, they pay higher taxes. However, their government uses the tax dollars for the good of the people, not for golf trips.

    you have low standards and a lower work ethic. I know you can at least be dedicated enough to walk to Canada if you are to poor for a ticket to your fantasy land on the continent.
