The Count, that was uncalled for. Keep your smartass remarks to yourself, nobody else wants to hear them.

And in regards to the thread, I'm not much of a politician...

The two seem to be confused quite often, and Christians get a bad name for many of the things that the English church(Mostly Catholic) did to people.

I agree with Jed and ZBomber, but if he wants to smack talk christians, lemme have a nice clean debate with the fellow.

The Count,

I am a Christian, and I'm not obsessive about Christianity. I don't know what laws they have where yiu live but I know that here in America it's illigal(sp?)to say things like that about people.

We have hope, we have somthing to believe it... we have a reached a state of mind where we can grasp the thought of there being something more than ourself... we have come to the realization that there JUST MIGHT be more reason to live then to die... And that my friend, bothers people.

Don't nag him to post again, guys. ;)


Anyway, I'm more of a...uh...what you would call....an indepublicrat.

A mixture of all three. But I enjoy making fun of politics/politicians more then actually getting into them seriously.

At the same time, we have found wisdom, we've reached a state of mind where we can grasp the thought that we might very well be alone..we have to come to realization that there just MIGHT NOT be someone to reward our actions in the afterlife...and that, my friend, bothers people.

See? It can go both ways.

Anyway, I'm an independent.

just a question to all republicans:

what are your views on the economy.

canada is strongly liberal and I allways thought of Canada and the States to be similar (as everybody allways says) but politicaly and socially minded we are continents appart.

we've been critized hundreds of times by the American ambassador to Canada that we spend too much money on social programs (which i find insulting and i sincerely felt like telling him to **** off). Anyways, WHY are you republican and etc. What policies do the republicans have that you love.

you cant just say: i'm republican (right wing) or democrate (center-left).

You have to know WHY. Not because of its party leader. Not because your mom or dad says so. Etc. WHY

I'm registered a Democrat, but really my own personal views consider all politicians (http://www.auri.org/news/ainapr99/images/hogs.jpg) to be beneath contempt. I looked, but you didn't have a poll choice for 'Jaded hippy.' ;)

Oh, Reclaimer, that's nonsense. :dozey: Freedom of speech, remember? You can say whatever you want, even if it offends (http://www.english-zone.com/funny-pix/g-images/oldman.jpg) everyone around you...

I'm more of a Democrat.

I have some Republican views, and Democrat views mostly.

Like, my Republican views are, that Abortion is Right, No need to get rid of Handguns, and keep Prayer in school.

I'm a christian, a roman catholic christian. Flame me all you want county, go ahead.

Well, if you read the Reclaimer original I quoted, you'll see that he clearly states that in America, the sort of statements he's talking about are illegal. ;) That is very much not the case; American citizens are guaranteed the right to free speech in their constitution (http://www.whitehouse.gov/kids/constitution/images/constitution-4.jpg).

I'm not trying to *provoke* anyone here. I do feel that it's important to clarify that point about our rights here in the US, because it is one that we cherish most highly...democrat, republican, christian and non-christian alike.

Speech (http://www.augustana.edu/alumni/giving/annualfund/teaching.gif) over. :D Please continue to discuss your opinions freely.

huh, i thought the Republicans were against abortions.

----

anyways. let me explain something, I am Canadian but i know american politics probebly better than a few Americans on this forum, why? Because America floods our TV airwaves with their stuff like we flood thier softwood market with our stuff.

Anyways, in Canada we have 5 political parties in the federal scene. The Liberals, the Canadian Alliance, the Conservative Partie, the National Democratic Party and the Bloc Québecois.

The Liberals are center-left party. I guess you could say they are more left wing than the Democrates. But unlike the democrates they know how to handle money. They are the current leading party and have been for a decade now and every time they balanced the books and have a surplus.

The Canadian Alliance is the official opposition party. They are the equivilant of the Republicans. I hate them. They want to tear down our Public Health System, convert every publicly owned systems like power, water, etc into privatly own business even thought we've seen the catrastophic consequences of that.

Conservative Party, they are allmost dead. They are center-right but they have a tendency to put the province/country into huge dept without telling the population (just look at the province of Ontario, where I live).

New Democratic Party The left wing party. They believe in grass-roots politics, populor with young voters for thier social views. They are also dying down under the super political powers that are the Liberals and Canadian Alliance.

Parti Québecois. Center-right party only represented in the province of Québec. For seperation of the province of the country. Have been dying down for stronger support of Liberal in the province. Used to be the official opposition years ago even thought they are only represent themselves in only 1 out of 10 provinces.

anyways. i have my doubts people will read this. but if they do, you've just learned something usefull.

I'm extremly happy Canadian society is liberal. I'm proud on our views on health care, human rights and equality (that includes gay mariage) and so on. I love Canadian politics

I'm a politically uncarring as they come. I'm registered independant, but I dont take advantage of my voter-abilities.


If I were forced to choose between the two I'd go Democrat, because i'm not very conservative (I am after all going to CU, one of the most liberal colleges around)

I like the liberal view because I think that change is good, especially in our country.

oh and Z, no not necessarily about the English Church. That doesnt really piss anybody off but Catholics. I think its just "cool" nowadays to be a rebel and join another teen bandwagon to hate christianity.

back on topic.

Im quite progressive in thought. I dont know what party that identifies with though. The actual labels of democrat and repuclican have changed "sides" so many times in american history I dont know whats what these days. I could care less what party a canidate for any govermnemt office is as long as that person does things that I like.

I absolutely hate conservatives though...why do you not want to progress as a society? History is about progress...duh, why would you want to supress that. I dont care how "romantic" some idea is...if it isnt doing any damn good to the public you shouldnt enforce it on them.
