In addition to the taxes,I think even the supporters who THINK we should emulate them would squeel like little pigs if they had to give up the freedom we have here vs the regulation there. We had three Swedes here for a week hunting in October. 25% sales tax,no pickup trucks at all. You can have up to six rifles,but no hand guns,no bow hunting,no snowmobiles,even though they're as far north as Alaska. Now they say no oil imports by 2020,and keep in mind they produce none of their own.
And that's just Sweden. I don't know how some of the other socialist countries do it.
