  1. There is an article on National Post that says the author thinks Scheer is a low-key kind of boring guy that is exactly what a lot of voters want. Showmanship is not what a lot of people are looking for or who can make the most doubtful claims. Most of what politicians promise is baloney that is unrealistic or never fulfilled. Personally I agree. I would add that if people are looking to politicians to give them everything and solve all the world's problems, they have a false hope.
  2. Is there any truth in this? I wouldn't touch a gay loonie. Will have to resort to quarters.
  3. Funny how some people make assumptions. Where is the evidence he is a dual citizen first? Even if he is a dual citizen, where is the evidence this is anything negative? Secondly where is the evidence he is a racist? How about producing some evidence instead of making wild allegations?
  4. Were you a member of the Conservative party and participated in the choice of the new leader, Scheer? People who didn't participate don't have much to complain about.
  5. China is a totalitarian country and does not believe in any kind of human rights. Without America there is no freedom. The freedom we enjoy is because America and the west defended it in the world. You sound like you are on the wrong side. America and the west are our allies, not China.
  6. One cannot make assumptions about religion if they know nothing about it. Belief in God is by faith and the Bible says faith is a gift of God. (King James Bible) Modern translations are corrupted because they are based on some corrupt manuscripts.
  7. It is a secular government, but there are a lot of Christians in it.
  8. The election of the 3 Green MLAs and the NDP in BC was one of the worst things that portion of the voters did to BC. The majority of people in BC support the Kinder Morgan pipeline but we will all pay the price for the disastrous decisions of the Green - NDP coalition.
  9. The U.S. legal system allows illegals to cross the border and remain in the U.S. I believe it was allowed by the previous administrations because of international conventions, possibly connected with the U.N. on rights of refugees. Europe has had the same problems. To change that would probably cause a backlash from the UN and other countries. I am not sure why the U.S. does not do what Australia does. Perhaps the legal system in the U.S. would make it more difficult.
  10. The idea was to build a high wall with very sharp razors along the top to discourage and make it next to impossible to climb over. But they need to change the law to make it possible to deal with illegal border migrants right at the wall, question them, and immediately ship them back to Mexico. The trouble is the UN has taken over nation's sovereignty and made if very difficult to stop illegal migrants. There are countries in the UN who want to tear down borders and enable the billions of people to move wherever they wish.
  11. The reason why a physical border wall is necessary is because if one illegal migrant steps across the border, the U.S. is obligated to let the person stay while their application goes through the process and hearing which could take a long time. In the meantime, they may just disappear somewhere in the country and refuse to report to any hearings, knowing they will be ordered deported. The only way to stop a person from setting foot on American soil is a wall. The National Guard or border police cannot stop a person from stepping across the border and claiming refugee status. That is the w
  12. Better to believe the Holy Scripture. Read Luke ch17 vs 19-31. King James Bible. Jesus gave this account of a rich man in hell and Lazarus. It doesn't say it was a parable. It must be taken as fact.
  13. The thing to remember the Bible says all are sinners and worthy of damnation. Sure there are different kinds of sinners. Some hedonists, some adulterers, some crooked in their dealings with others, and some crooked politicians who will say anything to get elected. No use going through the list of possible sins. The fact is someone who not as bad a sinner as others still doesn't get into heaven according to the Bible unless he is born again. So non-believers in Christ will be in the company of all kinds of different sinners from the world's worst tyrants, the sexual sinners, the crime gang
  14. I think Trudeau killed the Northern Gateway Pipeline project because he believed it would offend the Spirit Bear in the Great Bear Rainforest. The pipeline would have gone through a small part of the so-called Great Bear Rainforest to reach Kitimat. But he killed it and said the Great Bear Rainforest was no place for a pipeline. Don't offend the Kermode Bear.
  15. Don't know if you ever watch those channels that show border security agents running around the U.S.-Mexican border trying to catch illegal migrants coming but it is a steady struggle. Also watch the cocaine manufacturing and underworld in Columbia and other places and how they ship it into America. Billions of dollars worth. The Americans use helicopters, ATVs, trucks, police on foot constantly struggling. One the illegals come in all they can do is arrest them and process them and let them go. They are supposed to appear in a future hearing. It is a hopeless situation because pre
  16. I already explained why I thought Trump's base voted for him. The alternative was worse in their minds. Fro all we know Trump may have repented for his past sins and been forgiven. I don't know his personal beliefs. You can concentrate on those kinds of things if it will ease your conscience but I think his alleged past has nothing much to do with governing the country and the promises he made to build a wall and take action to make America great again. Saving unborn babies is like saving the Jews being sent to the holocaust. If you don't think that is important there isn't much I can s
  17. You are mixing political decisions by government with what Jesus taught to individuals. Government has a responsibility to protect it's country and citizens. Protecting borders and controlling immigration is necessary to protect a nation. All countries do this in some way or another. Jesus did not go into politics of nations. He said his kingdom is not of this world. Communists and liberals love to take verses and try to use them to back up their Communist or liberal ideology of state control or immigration policy. But Jesus was no Communist and did not advocate how the Roman Empire s
  18. "15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." 1 John 2:15-17 King James Bible
  19. That's your own definition of things which is not correct. Everyone should be treated with respect regardless of what they do. Unfortunately Trudeau doesn't do that when he puts his own spin on who get funding for student summer jobs and stuffs his personal immigration views down everyone's throat. He goes on twitter and says any and all are welcome to come in to Canada and thousands answered his call to come in illegally, including many with criminal records or security risk who we can't get rid of now because their home countries won't take them back. But many in the left believe in open
  20. Yes. Much like globalists and leftists vote to impose their ideology on everyone in the country.
  21. I think many people who like to use Trump to throw dirt at Christians fail to understand Trump's base's point of view. I think the reason why many evangelicals reportedly supported Trump is quite simple. Obviously they don't support the immoral things he may have said and done in his past. But they heard his promises and saw some merit in that. There were only two choices with any chance of winning, Clinton and Trump. Hillary being a vocal supporter of pro choice or pro abortion rights would automatically disqualify her there in the minds of those who believe in the sanctity of l
  22. The drug problem is out of control. Liberals are incapable of dealing with it. It's not in their thinking to eliminate.
