Your concept of free is skewed. There is no such thing as free unless the government enslaved the doctors and forced them to work without wages.

This doesn't happen in Australia. Doctors can work anywhere they want but get incentives to work in rural areas

my cousin's univesity fees in the states cost him something like $300,000. my 3 years in University here only cost me about $6000. If that is considered bad, than I don't want good.
U.S schools> Canada schools. See who gets the job quicker.

Socialist concepts such as income redistribution, welfare entitlement programs and the like.

But this is not really socialism. I mean, did you study sociology yet? I know it is a national college requirement, not so sure about high schools though.
But back to the topic, the only real difference(which lies at the basis) between socialism and capitalism is a right to property, or actually the lack of it, which I do not support.
Everything you listed might be called logical derivatives of socialism, but they are not even close to the actual socialism.
As it been shown by the history, extremes of any kind are deadly and usually do not survive the test of times.
Thus I am all for a strong enough government that implements some socialistic concepts(since they are quite useful), however capitalism(although somewhat controlled as well) should be the base of the political system.

nope, just some more propaganda. our education system is actually MUCH better than yours.

George bush attended Yale University and Harvard Business School and graduated. A guy with his level of intelligence would never have gotten a Bachelor's degree here in Canada. And the amount of education Americans have about themselves and the world is not even comparable. You can argue that you have a better level of health care but when it comes to education, Canada destroys the US.

You must be joking right. Name some of the great schools that Canada has produced.
