You don't live here. What you think means absolutely nothing and has absolutely no effect on anything. Your country isn't even a player on the world stage. And you don't seem to know what you're talking about anyway.

So just sit back and relax knowing we protect you at no charge. Have some hot chips and put a spit shine on your hockey puck or something.

The truth is the truth regardless of who speaks it. Republican lies took America into Iraq. Where are the WMD? You attack President Obama for your country's problems. He did not create the problems and is doing his best to sove them. Here is another truth for you: America is bankrupt and will never be able to repay its debts.

We Canadians don't need to go off and attack anyone to prove how tough or smart we are. You are a warlike nation and have squandered your wealth on weapons and war.

    Do you get all your information from the left-wing media?  Seems to be the case.

    There were no "Republican lies" that took us into Iraq, as much as the media would like you to believe (and which you have bought into -- hook, line, and sinker).

    Bill Clinton was very firm about WMDs being in Iraq, and based policy on it.

    Before we went to war in Iraq, the US Congress -- with a huge Democrat majority -- overwhelmingly approved it.  They did so based upon their own assessment of the information, not based on "Republican lies".

    Note that this is very UNLIKE the current Libya debacle, in which Obama took us to war WITHOUT consent of Congress, and lied about troops on the ground.  Now he's claiming it's not even a war. 

    Of course, you won't see these kinds of assessments on your favorite brand of mainstream TV show, because UNLIKE FOX, they only show the liberal point of view.  On FOX, you get both views, and you can make up your own damn mind.

    Edit: I guess you don't realize that Canadian troops helped in Iraq (both times), Afghanistan, and Libya.  Did I burst your bubble?

              I think in terms of liberal and conservative, because you're right, political parties are self-serving and often betray their so-called values.

              So the first part you said -- "republican/democrat" -- is right.  But the next part -- "liberal/conservative" -- is not (IMHO).  Liberal or conservative does not make someone a crook, it holds them to certain values and ideals.

              If you believe more and bigger central government is the answer to most problems, you're a liberal.

              If you believe smaller and less central government is the answer to most problems, you're a conservative.

              Why is that?  Because conservatives believe in the Constitution, as it was written.  Conservatives believe the Constitution created the ideal social and political system (not perfect, but ideal for human beings).  Liberals, on the other hand, view the Constitutiuon as an impediment to their ideal social and politicial system, so they constantly struggle to find new ways to poke holes in it.

              The Constitution itself is a document that LIMITS the powers of a central (federal) government, placing the power in the STATES -- i.e., closest to the PEOPLE.  (A Federalist system.)  So hopefully you can see why conservatives view a smaller and more limited central (federal) government as a good thing -- it is closest to the original intent of the Constitution.

              There are free copies of the Constitution available for anyone to read on the Internet, just do a Google search.  It's a relatively short document, and a quick read.  Everyone should read it at least once, because it will really open your eyes.

                    Well done Todd. However, I suggest the constitution was drafted by all conservatives. Perhaps thats why slavery was allowed.Embarassed  There is a fundamental flaw with your opinion. As with the Bible or Koran or Laws, the constitution can and has always been interpreted with a self serving purpose.

                     

                    I think their are vital issues for Federal Government to be involved in. Simply  saying less government is better is misleading. Remember, we are the most powerful nation in the world and responsiblities go with that. I do respect your opinions. I only object to the narrow minded approach.

                     

                    Sure government is a hinderance when it comes to job creation and civil liberties. Bush was a "Conservative" but after 911 he infringed on everyones civil liberties which is a direct swipe at conservative values (patriot act). Obama continues with these same laws.

                    The reason why you cant simply allow states to govern themselves at all times without any interruption from the fed is because their would be even more widespread corruption. Again we tried that with slavery which led to the civil war( see Jim Demint). What we find is that behind most decisions made by governments is the perpetuation of greed and censorship. How did this happen? Privatization. I can go on and on but thats my opinion.

                      Oh my gosh no, the framers were rebels in their day. Slavery was ended by republicans. If Abe Lincoln was not elected it might have taken decades longer. Republicans also passed thru the civil rights laws in the 60s when the democrats were trying to kill the bill. these are historical facts. Time to switch off CNN and learn the truth.

                          I have no hatred for Obama or anybody else.

                          I'd just like to have competent leadership in this country. He is no leader. He voted "present" all the way through the state senate in Illinois because he wasn't capable of making a decision. He was a good community organizer but he is in way over his head now. He simply doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

                          But everything he is doing is wrong.

                          And the very survival of our country is at stake.

                          Great point.. I Agree!

                            Do you get all your information from the left-wing media?  Seems to be the case.

                            There were no "Republican lies" that took us into Iraq, as much as the media would like you to believe (and which you have bought into -- hook, line, and sinker).

                            Bill Clinton was very firm about WMDs being in Iraq, and based policy on it.

                            Before we went to war in Iraq, the US Congress -- with a huge Democrat majority -- overwhelmingly approved it.  They did so based upon their own assessment of the information, not based on "Republican lies".

                            Note that this is very UNLIKE the current Libya debacle, in which Obama took us to war WITHOUT consent of Congress, and lied about troops on the ground.  Now he's claiming it's not even a war. 

                            Of course, you won't see these kinds of assessments on your favorite brand of mainstream TV show, because UNLIKE FOX, they only show the liberal point of view.  On FOX, you get both views, and you can make up your own damn mind.

                            Edit: I guess you don't realize that Canadian troops helped in Iraq (both times), Afghanistan, and Libya.  Did I burst your bubble?

                            Excellent.. I Agree!

                             

                            And yes indeed:

                            A Canadian made the longest sniper kill shot on record, during The Afghan War; a dizzying 1.5 miles..

                            Impressive !!

                            (2004 maybe, can't remember the year for sure).

                              You might want to be a little thankful for our military, because of us no one screws with you.
