Why would a "right winger" even want to deny it? It's the "left wingers" who hate the truth.

Why do you post such hate? Did you have a bad day?
No, I'm testing our hate laws to see if I'm being monitored.

Where's the hate in that post of mine? Surely you're not using my words insane, idiotic, retarded, vituperative, garbage to describe something deemed worthy of protecting to indicate hatred on my part?

Accusing someone of supporting the KKK is quite hateful. Especially when you know nothing about them.

Default Do you consider Canada less "free"?

I consider Canada to be more freezing.

You know someone? Well that settles it, then.
I'm a Canadian who lived in the US. I did not find a better quality of life there, but a much worse one. I came home.
Do you have anything else?

If healthcare is all ya got, well that's sad. Most people want more out of life than healthcare and frigid climate.

Unlike the US, Canada has nothing the majority of the rest of the world covets or envies. Practically everyone wants to come here to get a piece of it (even Canadians). If Canada is freer, then the rest of the world is wrong? Doubtful don't you think?
What do Canadian conservatives think?

well the small c tory Conservative party we have here would be seen as even a somewhat left of Obama and the U.S. democratic party

In fact the Liberal party of Canada is a just left of center party that they would be a ride the fence party and the NDP is the left side of the political political spectrum with the dived and continuing topan.


Also as a Canadian what is freer cause it is not a word here we would use just free or higher degree of Freedom.

since if you are already free you are not freer than free since that makes no sense and we all have different degrees of freedoms or some have more or but no no country or persons who are citizens
I am not free to drive autobahn speeds in a sports car in both our countries a 160MPH-170MPH in a C6 corvette on long straight see for miles and other cars know that lane is for higher speed or Germany sell beer with their lunch and dinner menus to walk in only customers and Japan has vending machines that you can buy fully cooked meals from and different brand of beer at a vending like a can of pop.

I mean we would be free if we did not try to force people to eat healthy basn sugery driks or force a limit on spoeed in areas that modern cars are more than capable of hadling and fast food joints sell azice Cold glass or pint of Beer and you can get a few different brands of beer or mini bottle3s of captain Morgan rum and buy a bottle or can of coke and have a Rum and at you mall food court ot a Oranange juice and Smirnoff of vodka or some JD mini whiskey bottles.


I mean with the new enhanced driver licenses and I.D. kids would need a valid Drivers license with biometrics and RFRID chip already in some driver licenses our use you smart phone and to prove you I.D. bill it to them..the I phone 5S could be with their new high tech phone you can know go touch on a hot summer day and head to a local coke or Pepsi machine now that is a hit

To have the freedom of choosing between junk food healthy drinks and snacks or an ice Cold beer on hot day while picnicking with the family or stopped to have a cold beer and feed the ducks some bread off your sandwich for lunch and enjoy the weather and your lunch break we should be are free to do.

I would think one has to live close to the border for this to work.

No, American parents are over protective.
