Pat Oliphant for March 27, 2013
Listen! The health care system here is laughable, as are the tax and education systems. The political system is loaded with venal politicians owned by people with enough money to buy them. The trains we have don't run on time, and if you're looking for bullet trains, go to Italy. The country is full of armed crazies with gun rights. American jurisprudence is completely flawed and nonsensical. Why would you want to swap your banana republic for this one? And you forgot to mention the banks.
