    Well, there is always a comparison of course - however I agree there is no equality.

    Both countries have made abortion illegal in at least some places. Somalia has 10x fewer guns per capita than the US, has a crime, 3x lower murder rate, but an almost identical infant mortality rate.

    ?? Uh - no. Why would you assume that? Are you one of those people who think that anyone who doesn't praise everything the US does should leave? There were a lot of those sort of people in the 1970's, saying that any protesters who thought the Vietnam War was wrong was a communist and should move to Russia.

    This country was founded on the principle that the people could change the government if they decided they didn't like it. There's a lot to fix.

    Nope, I'm not one of those people. Why do you ask?

    Because you asked "you thinking about moving there?"

    That's reading a lot into my words, don't you think?
