Isn't the idea that Norway can be the example to follow for the USA impracticable and kind of foolish? The USA has a greatly different history, demographics, strengths and weaknesses. 320 million people!

Wouldn't the US have more in common with Australasia or Canada or Britain?

In what respect has anyone suggested this? That the USA become selfsufficient in energy? Entirely possible but strategically unlikely. State ownership of basic industries? Politically improbable. Socialised medicine? Ridiculous - only politicians deserve that, and they will continue to make damn sure that nobody else gets it. A high standard of spoken and written English? C'mon youse guys, git yo heads outta you asses. Prime exporter of dried cod to Nigeria? Too late - the Grand Banks have been overfished already. Gun control? Don't make me laugh. Insane right wing mass murderers? Invented in America, surely.

Aha! I got it! a quisling president. Comin' right up, ma'am, and only 80 years late.
