From 1933 till January 1969 there was only one republican elected president and that president Dwight D Eisenhower by today's republican party standards would be considered a raving socialist. It was the Democratic party that pulled America out of the republican created great depression of the dirty 30's, stood with Americans and the world defeating Nazis and its axis.

It was the Democratic party that created Americas present day social programs from seniors pensions to medicare. It was democratic party that backed unions that helped an industrial revolution that created the greatest middle class in world history. It was a democrat vision that put Americans in space and finally on the moon.

These were the years that made America great, the envy of the world. These were Americas golden years of the 20th century, a time when Americans stood together for decades and rejected the right wing politics of selfishness, greed and division.

In the 47 years since 1969 we've seen 5 years of Nixon, 3 years of Ford, 8 years of Reagan , 4 years of Bush one, 8 years of Bush two , 28 years of Republicans and America has been socially , morally and financially circling the drain.

For me the beginning of the end was the first time I saw the Gong Show on TV. It really signaled the moral deterioration of America. It was a like a 20th century manifestation of a Bruegel painting.

The 1970's was the early turning point in American society , where greed and selfishness became virtues in business and ultimately life. The start of i've got mine and FU society, ushered in by the presidency of that treasonous crook, none other than Richard Nixon himself.

One thing I wonder about is if the national health care system in Canada also includes free dental services. I would assume that it would include eye exams and some coverage for eyeglasses or contacts for the many people who need them to see. What kind of mental health coverage is available, and do people need to wait for weeks to see a psychiastrist or psychotherapist, or can they be seen within a matter of a few weeks?

No free dental under Canada's national health system with a few exceptions. Psychiatrist and physiotherapy are covered. Eye examines were covered until the right wing government of the day a few years ago delisted it. Eye glasses are not covered.
