  1. They'll get Communism right this time, eh? I think we've heard that before a few times now.

  2. from the mouths of the GOP leader of the senate and now the GOP leader of the house. McCarthy claims no one 'questioning the legitimacy' of the 2020 election

  3. This would not be the first such development in the history and harassment and ostracism of the Republicans who chose to stand up for Constitutional principles is a clear indicator that something is brewing. What if one of the two mainstream parties in America will shift toward authoritarianism, personality cult and neglect of democratic values and principles? What would be the consequences for the US and the rest of the world?

  4. I can't say I'm surprised that the original horror story of Canada becoming a communist state, would carry on page after page for a good while before lack of any coherence or evidence would lead it to run out of gas, like all the other anti-left themes. How many times do paranoid rightwingers conflate every conceivable adversary who doesn't buy their bullshit, as all being enemies of FREEDUMB and part of the same plot against democracy and FREE enterprize? Too numerous to count, I'm sure! But on that theme you seem to be heading towards: "I don't think there has been a Communistic

  5. We've seen plenty of professors say outrageous things which the universities have actually defended because those things are coming from the far left. Also, there's no evidence what she said was even mildly unpopular with the student body as opposed to vastly unpopular with a very small cadre of politically extremist students.

  6. There's no question that at some point populist and authoritarian crowd lacking even a shred of critical ability toward their leaders no matter what they claim (it is a confirmed fact now) would win some elections and return to power. And in their own words, the law and the Constitution work only as long as they work for them. And this is a path that has few good outcomes. We should know that from the history if we cared to remember and not repeat it.

  7. And Trump replied: " I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy. She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!"

  9. Neo-Cons like Cheney are Liberals. RINOs like the Lincoln project have gone full-Prog. The core Right are constitutional Republicans who believe in rights of the individual. Equality over Equity. Opportunity over outcome. Time for the clown-show of leftist party hijackers like Cheney, Romney, KInsinger, Mcarthy et al to go. It will become evident even to them in the midterm primaries that any power they thought they had is gone. The days of the Frank Luntz Republican are over.

  10. If Liz Cheney wasn't a RINO, she would have just said the vote against her was fixed and a fraud and started trashing the place.

  11. Biden’s in office for 4 months and full scale war in the Middle East. Didn’t happen when Trump was president.

  13. It doesn't matter what Marx opposed or warned. History shows that it lends itself to being overtaken and run by the entirely by the government. Because communism can only be sustained by authoritarianism, because it goes against basic human nature. Marx's solution to this problem was even more extreme - complete elimination and overthrow of the existing bureaucracy by continual revolution. Sure... sounds goof to me. I'll stick to tolerating moderate criminality, while still having a reasonably good life, steak dinner and a bottle of beer in the fridge. Revolution, you say? N

  14. Actually... you are only *close*. Conservatism was traditionally about conserving.... Nixon founded the EPA George HW Bush established the innovative credit-trading system that addressed CFCs in the atmosphere Margaret Thatcher urged global action on climate change. This new halfbreed assholian conservative movements are anything but. They are fake Christians celebrating the pain and decadence of others, spendthrift deficit-makers who want to cut taxes but not spending, and people who hate education and science. The Democrats are more conservative than they are, if you remo

  15. Right. And I don't blame those people for wanting to socialize, and spending too much time and getting too close to neighbors living in their buildings. But, I noticed that the front lobby of my in-laws apartment building has removed the chairs and all of the furniture besides posting signs advising residents not to loiter and be on their way quickly...either to their apartments or outside where aerosolized viruses won't build up in the air and pose a danger of spreading. That may not be a perfect solution, but at least it's a start!

  16. The difference here is that some real and true conservative people have this thing called honesty, integrity and class and those conservatives are not about to go out there and sell their souls to big pharma by buying shares and are willing to add to committing harm towards others. Many doctors have taken that do not harm oath but many do not practice that do not harm oath. Many doctors already know that many vaccines do not work. Many doctors will administer vaccines because there is money to be made from them. Not all doctors are honest and have class and integrity. Anyone can go on the inte

  17. Same here! Although I may vote Green Party if there's (as usual) no chance for the Tories taking my riding. I would be thrilled with the NDP if they would go back to actually standing clearly for workers, promoting/not attacking unions, and not acting like 'Liberal Lite.' Talking about tax cuts, pro-business policies etc.. It seems, at least ever since Ed Broadbent was NDP leader, whenever the Libs are down, the NDP will try to triangulate their way to the center, where the Liberal Party stakes out their turf. The old PC's already did it way too much, so that in typical elections in the 6

  18. Less support than he used to have; a counter to your claim that people think he's godlike - or some such nonsense claim you've made. I suppose if Conservatives offered something Canadians want, JT would not have the support he has. It's odd that Conservatives put forth their ideas and have them rejected by the majority, and then blame everybody else instead of considering that maybe they're the ones who've got it wrong. If Conservatives have such good ideas, they'd present them and gain the support they want. Instead they act all butthurt that their social/fiscal conservative/regressiv

  19. They were good but also a little oversimplified at times. Mostly it gets you thinking a little bigger than most readable books on the topic.

  20. Wonderdunce, who was hailed as a social justice hero for not following Trump's lead and banning flights from China, just banned flights from India and Pakistan. Trump figured this one out in the first month of the pandemic, it took Trudeau 16x as long. Will CTV let people call Trudeau a racist on their national news coverage now? Doubt it.

  21. Yep. That’s why I have no use for the Trump haters. They’re almost all hypocrites and liars.
