U.S. congressman: Here’s why America is more successful than Canada

How’s this for an attention-grabbing bit of political oratory, delivered in the United States House of Representatives? A Wisconsin Republican opined that Canada and lots of other places are less successful than the United States and offered his theory about why they are “countries that fail.”

Rep. Glenn Grothman says it’s because of cultural divisions. In Canada’s case, he says, those divisions involve language. And he lumped it in with a long list of what he called failed countries.

“I never felt Canada was quite as successful as America,” he began in his Nov. 16 speech. “[That’s] because, to a degree, their elections pitted the French speakers against the English speakers.”

He went on to say it’s true in lots of other places, including the continent of Africa that contains 54 countries: “You look at elections in the Middle East, and it is the Sunnis against the Shiites. You look at elections in Africa, and it is one tribe against another tribe.”

In other words, he said, when people in these countries “go to the polls, they don’t say what is the appropriate money to spend on national defence or what is our roads policy or what should be appropriate criminal justice policy or the length of jail sentences.

“No, in these countries that fail, the elections are a contest of one ethnic group against another.”
