"I have always said that the US is a thirld worl country with money.
Look at it: almost no electrification in rail, very expensive infrastructures crumbling for lack of maintenance, very expensive yet overall innefective health system, and very little done to prevent serious injury or death in many aspects: badly designed electric plugs, no decent protections in trucks, no serious safety building standards, almost no checking of drinking water quality, etc etc etc."
You have no idea what you are talking about.
In large metro areas we do have electrified rail. The size of the country prohibits running a 3rd rail for class A railroads. The distances are too great.
Health Care. Well, it isn't perfect and is getting worse from a cost perspective, but I've heard plenty of horror stories about the 'free' health care in the UK.
Building code in the US is probably the best in the world. We have high rise buildings that can withstand 7.0+ earth quakes and homes that can do the same. Older buildings are either required to be brought up to code or are condemned. And considering the tragic fire last week in the UK due to cutting corners, I don't think you have any room to talk there.
Car safety requirements are a big reason why a good percentage of cars built in Europe are not allowed into this country.
