  1. When you can adjust your convictions you become a liar....

    I'd say when you can't adjust your convictions, you become brain dead.

    If there truly was a hidden agenda why didn't Scott Brison or Belinda Stronach expose it when they crossed the floor?

    Stronach said "I didn't get involved in putting the two parties together so we could break up the country." Destroying the central government and replacing it with regional fiefdoms with firewalls around them could be considered a hidden agenda, considering they certainly aren't mentioning it during the campaign.

  2. I certainly don't hate Harper (don't even know him). But I do think he's moderating his image and suppressing his personal political opinions in order to get elected. But that's just politics, not cause for hatred.

    But as for him, I'm not convinced he has anything but contempt for humanity in general. :D

    Contempt for humanity? :rolleyes:

    Maybe he just has contempt for idiots.

    Though I can understand how there'd be little difference for you.

    Yes, Argus, I am a total idiot, but I'm not stupid enough to fall for the weed is "way more dangerous today because it's so much stronger than the stuff hippies used to smoke" argument. :P

  4. I would consider SSM to be an issue of personal responsibility (as marriage is a responsible commitment) and allowing it a sign of respect for others. In fact, I would say it strengthens family values, because it supports commitment in relationships, which is what families are based on.

    And I don't see how getting tough on crime (which I personally fully support) does anything to strengthen the family.

  5. The Liberal Party preaches hatred for:

    1) The truth that they committed a crime by creating the sponsorship scandal.

    2) The Americans.

    3) The average voter by thinking they must be so stupid to believe that Martin is the king of healthcare and social programs when he cut funding for them in 1995.

    4) Canada by allowing Martin to fly the flags of foreign companies and not funding the military and protecting Canadian sovereignty in the Arctic. 

    The CPC is not hateful, they are just frustrated that voters in a G8 country would be so stupid to elect the hateful and corrupt Liberals.

    1) They preach hatred because some ad agencies engineered some kickbacks? 2) Other than Carolyn Parrish, whom they expelled, they don't preach hatred against Americans. They preach Canadian sovereignty, which Conservatives don't seem to understand.

    3) Canada was coming out of a recession in 1995 and, at the time, conservatives raved how Martin was finally balancing the budget.

    4) I don't presume to know how the inner workings of international shipping companies. My guess, though, is that the flag flown has a lot more to do with paperwork and bottom-line taxation than with loyalty. The company's head office is in Canada. that's good enough for me.

    Damn, I'm beginning to sound like a Liberal. :(

  6. I'm not a Liberal (I vote NDP too), but I don't get the "culture of entitlement" thing. Back when they had no real opposition, I was surprised how Chretien seemed to campaign against Stockwell Day as if he were a real alternative. And I understand how Martin's "10-year plans" appear presumptuous, but I don't think that's any different than Harper saying he'd lower the GST to 5% in five years. It's just putting forward a plan that voters can take or leave.
