  1. And Bush is not a neo con or a conservative of any kind. He's simply a rich, daddy's boy opportunist.

    That's true. Bush probably couldn't even define neocon. But he's a puppet president with neocons actually running the show. Cheney is a recent neocon convert (he used to be a moderate republican), Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz are definitive neocons. Condoleeza Rice--I don't think anybody's figured her out yet.

  2. Oh I get it. Scary-scary-scary won't work anymore.

    So make people afraid of the CPC by comparing them to the Republicans.

    Man the desperation of the Liberals is comical.  :lol:

    I'm not a liberal. I vote NDP (though I may, for the first time, be a strategic voter).

    So how are the CPC different from the republicans? Stephen Harper comes from the same school of thought as David Frum. I can't see how they are anything but a GOP Mini-Me.

  3. No chance that a conservative government would run a deficit? That's what the republicans said in 2000. All neo-cons run deficits because their reason-for-being is to run government into the ground because (remember?) they're anti-government.

    Under a blue government, Canada would be in the red in a year.

  4. After being identified as an Alberta separatist under the name "psycho" on many blogs including freedominion.ca, CPC candidate Peter Goldring's campaign manager Gordon Stamp resigned. One of his many quotes "I am fairly positive 1/2 our campaign team will be working for separation after January 23 if the Liberals remain in power."

    Go figure. B)

  5. The institution of marriage as we knew it? Pleease. Again, why are you not out crusading to reinstate the previous laws for divorce? Why are you not boycotting advertisers of FOX TV shows like Married by America? I don't see how my heterosexual marriage is in any way affected by SSM. Even if I had something against homosexuality, I think I could summon the strength to mind my own business enough to let them live as they want to live.

  6. Marriage may not be a right as defined under the UN Declaration, but it is a privilege enjoyed by all members of society except gay people. What is the point of allowing same-sex unions with all of the incidents and privileges of marriage without calling it marriage? That's just a wishy-washy concession to appease people who just need to get over the fact that gay people live among us. It's disrespectful to say that homosexual marriage would tarnish or diminish heterosexual marriage. Forcing gay people to accept a term that only exists to placate this outright bigotry is forcing them to accept a second-class status. That goes against their basic human rights.

  7. How is being allowed to marry the person you love not a basic right? If you don't care for that term, how does this somehow diminish heterosexual marriage? Doesn't divorce and marrying for citizenship diminish it more than homosexuals wanting in? It seems to me the institution of marriage is strengthened because it shows that people really want it. If people opposed to SSM were really serious about the institution of marriage (and not just bigoted against gay people), they would be campaigning to strike down recent (as of the '60s) liberal divorce laws.
