“Source for the statement "Every Liberal Prime Minister had a surplus, would be appreciated, Your statement is simply not true, nothing but spin...take a look at the Trudeau years..The IMF finaly required the gov't take credible action to stop the financial bleeding. Our take home wages were becoming less and less. Trudeau was not a good steward of the economy. Chretien didn't balance budgets either. Do a bit of research, you may be surprised to learn that facts can be more interesting than spin.”

“Many States have "The Right To Carry" laws, includes universities, bars, and AZ tried for librairies, that didn't pass muster. The NRA is a powerful, well funded lobby group that holds the political future of the congressman/woman or senator in their hands. Support anti gun groups or gun laws and you can likely kiss a political career goodby! Thankfully they've not had the same success in Canada.”

“You are so spot on!! My husband and I have spent 23 winter seasons in AZ., it is unbelievable what is happening in that once wonderful country. Political hatred for anyone with a differing opinion, guns allowed in of all places a bar!! Booze & firearms just don't mix!...As I read the comments, especially those about PM Harper, I find the similarities unsettling with regard to the lack of civility with which some express their opinion. I'm not a party supporter, however, what so few Harper Haters seem to be aware of is, Canada has been declared to be exceptionally well managed of the G7 also, Canada is well ahead of the other G7 nations in having a balanced budget and reduced taxes by 2015. Just wish people would forget ideology and do a bit of researcg to educate themselves”

“Did you provide her with a few other FACTS, E Health Cards 1.1 Billion, Ornge Air just under a Billion, gas plants 1.1 billion, billions thrown away on Green Energy projects, that didn't benefit one taxper, instead cost homeowners and industry higher energy bills as well as thousands of jobs. Did you tell her about the Mars real estate deal, again costing taxpyers hundreds of millions?? Oh yes and the 300,000 mfg jobs that have left the province. Unbelievable how little non partisan info you provided!!”

MJWood on Jun 7, 2014 at 15:49:36

“Not all the fault of the Liberals! Conservatives have done worse and will bankrupt Ont. with their tea party mentality much like yours. Green energy is not a bad idea either. Cutting social programs is and that is what Hudak will do.”

“I am appalled at the at the lack of civility and rudness so prevalent in society today. When we arrived in this great nation 23 years ago it just wasn't like this. People, including politicians were at least civil!!”

“I think it began with the rise of conservative media, during the Clinton years. They tapped into deep pockets of resentment in our "left behind" population that they have been exploiting for financial and political gain for decades now.”

“Under Liberal mis-management of the economy Ontario, once the economic engine of Canada, has become a have not province trying to borrow itself toward prosperity. 250,000 jobs have left the province. Does that cause anyone concern? billions squandered as a result of poor decisions. Companies relocating as the result of high taxation, high energy costs and no vision, other than maintain power. One has to wonder at the thought process that leads people to think all of this is acceptable, and deserving of support. Wynne served in McGuinty's cabinet for 10 yrs, she knew what was going on.”

“I'm currently reading an excellent book, Bulls, Bears & the Ballot Box. Not political spin, substantiated fact. As for crossing signals you disagreed with my comment, or so it appears, Deregulation set the stage for the likes of the Bernie Maddox. I've re-read your comment, unless my interpretive skills have abandoned me it still comes across that you and the economists you know agree with what he did.”

secular666 on May 24, 2014 at 20:03:34

“When I said crossed signals, I didn't blame you. I'm a fan of Krugman's in particular, I view the folks you apparently are disagreeing with as basically the 'austerians' he d espises.

So please relax. Being accusatory when people end up agreeing with you is a bit odd.”

“Check your history. Mariner Eccles, a wealthy Republican banker, was appointed as Chairman of the Fed Reserve Bank and developed the regulations that served and protected the American people up until the days of Ronnie, who deregulated the banking system. Your economists must be Republicans who will never admit Reagan deregulated the baning system that served the nation well, trippled the debt, and created the "hate government" mentality with his "government can't solve the problem, government is the problem:, and the T party came from his Southern Strategy. He couldn't make ir in the real world, failed in the pretend world and became a politician. Pretty scarey when you consider the power of the nation”

secular666 on May 23, 2014 at 03:19:24

“You have it backwards. I, and many economists also, argue that the deregulation was a mistake. A big one. We've crossed signals somewhere.”

“She's wrong..read about the regulations put in place by FDR as a result of the crash in 29. Ronny removed those regs to the delight of the wall street guru's, America and those nations whose economies are inter-related would have been taken down had they not been bailed out.however, It was rough for awhile, would have been a lot rougher had he not held his nose and done what had to be done.”

secular666 on May 21, 2014 at 15:09:01

“That is not the case, and you won't find a credible economist outside of the political realm who'd seriously agree with that. The deregulation vastly helped specific financial institutions, but led to artificial bubbles and speculation that crushed these economies.”

“Obviously you have limited comprehension. Nowhere in my comments have I indicated being opposed to paying reasonable taxes, We've been paying taxes for some 60 plus yrs, likely before you were born! My issue is the squandering of the taxes by the Left who subscribe to tax and spend. Before making loony comments, read and try if you're able to comprehend what is said. One of the major problems with being a blind follower of any ideology is the closing of the mind to any opinion outside the ideological box. By the way have you read the book "Tax Me I'm Canadian"? I added Rob me, that's been going on by the Liberals for the past 10 yrs., it would appear that was misinterpreted to to be in reference to Rob Ford, you people are amazing!!”
