Considering the far-left political views of many Canadians I have encountered on City-Data, I wonder if President Obama would be too right-wing for Canada.

I don't think Obama's fascist governance falls in the right-left spectrum. I suspect he would be arrested and imprisoned in Canada with his record of murder, war and infringement of civil libertis.

Obama is a centrist who actually wants to get something done. He'd fit in fine there.

There are a lot less of the uneducated, call themselves Republican, right wing whiners in Canada. The average person can actually do things like read a paper, tell you all of their Provinces, point their country out on a map and all of those basic things that a lot of the tea bagger types struggle with.

He would not fit in at all. Canada is a peaceful country, Obama is not a peaceful person.

Your posts are numbing my intelligence. Since you say your location is "occupied Virginia", I'm guessing you're so far right that you've almost traveled around the political globe. I have a friend who lives in Virginia - he considers it quite a free state. I can only imagine what sort of anarcho-libertarianism you are into.

Check that again. Canada has no problem stepping up to the plate. They did more than their fair share in Afghanistan. They also had a guy make a world record sniper shot there. They would be using drones if they had them.

They fought in both WW's, took a beach in Normandy, participated in the Gulf War, Korea, etc. They smartly skipped over Bush's mistake in Iraq and didn't participate in Vietnam.

Perhaps you might want to know some history before you make generalizations of a country. They have these things called libraries nowadays.

Nice deflection. I'm basically a fiscal conservative and far more to the left than you are on social issues. So unlike you, I don't like war, killing american citizens without due process, and arresting people for smoking a leaf (which you support due to your support for Obama).

I don't think he'd fit if he takes any responsibility for any of these, admittedly homegrown but telling nonetheless, assessments :

Canada is a great country.

They don't need Obama's war machine, or Obama's ghetto scene.

He can sparkle someon else's eye.

I don't think a lot of American liberals can name all the provinces in Canada.
