"Scandinavia has the a child poverty rate of 2-5% the US has 22% Higher than Canada 15% and approaching Mexico's 27%"
What you really mean is that Scandanavia has a lower grown-up poverty rate. The child poverty rate is nothing more than an adult poverty rate couched in more dramatic terms, in order to appeal to one's heart strings. It's pretty much impossible to hold children accountable for their parent's low economic value, so it's optimal to portay them as the victims. They are victims, but rather than being victims of society, they are victims of thier idiot unproductive parents.
And if it is so much better there? Why are you still here. We've already estbalished tthat freedom of movement is allowed. I'm not particularly concerned about poverty, since it doesn't really exist here in the US.
"I guess the US has ambitions of being like Mexico (the capitalist wet dream) We know things are going swimmingly well there."
Mexico is a capitalists wet dream? Shooting from the hip a little, are we?
The dominant political party in Mexico is the PRI-the Institutional Revolutionary Party. They are a member of the Socialist International, and like all Socialist parties rely on government having strict control over the population. The fact that the country sucks a little should come as no surpise, given its socialist history.
"Just pointing out how narrow and stupid your remarks are."
At least I didn't make mine up...
"Profits over People."
When you are giving 70% of your earnings away as a means of helping the poor, then you can talk. I'm guessing you don't-you just expect others to do so.
Generally speaking, progressives aren't interested in sacrificing their own standard of living in order to help others. They want to keep their standard of living by forcing someone else to make the sacrifices required to provide for those who don't provide for themselves
