A pretty self-explanatory thread. This was inspired by my fiancee, who is a Canadian citizen. We were discussing the political views of many American conservatives and she mentioned that many may feel that Canadians exchange their "freedoms". What do you think?

No, I don't feel less free. I'm planning a Cuba vacation and eating a Kinder Egg even as we speak.

We think if you want to live like Canadians then go live there.

Canadians are used to high taxes, over regulation and living in a nanny state.

A lot of what they have in place would never work in the US.

I don't live there so I do not give it much thought and not living there my opinion really doesn't matter.

Never heard of a "Kinder Egg." Thank God for Wikipedia. Careful you don't swallow that small toy.

That's OK. A lot of what you have in place would never work in here.

I'm quite sure the Canadians don't think they are "less free" than U.S. citizens.
Although there a LOT of them who spend a LOT of time in Northwestern Montana!
One has to wonder why?

They're delicious. The toy, not so much.

Oooh! Hostility by the third post. There was no need for that. The OP just posed a valid question.
