As an American, I seem to be buffeted from all sides about how great Canada is. (And I love visiting there, I do, and love my Canadian friends.) But hearing about all the good things (One year paid maternity leave! Free health care! Hockey Night in Canada! Timbits!) can kind of wear you down after a while.
That's why reading this piece, on the plusses of the US political system over Canada's, is kind of a relief, to be honest. I do love my country, and despite all its flaws, I'll continue to visit the Great White North, not make plans to move there.
