“You should see budget comparisons from the three major parties. Who has delivered the highest percent of of balanced budgets, and who is the worst? NDP is the best, and the Conservatives are the worst, and the Liberals come in a distant second.”

“10 million people were killed in the Holocaust, six million Jews, and four million Roma, homosexuals, political prisoners, and people with disabilities.
If you're ok with that happening again because of some country that shares a religion with some victims isn't perfect, then you are an anti-semite.
You can be critical of Israel, without being critical of the suffering of millions of people for no reason other than circumstance of birth and belief.”

“Yes I do. I come from a family that has donated over 100 million dollars (between the 70s-90s) to the arts, medical research, and other social programs. My family owned and operated a Trust company (before the financial pillars were changed to remove the differences between banks, trusts, etc)
However, we shouldn't rely on the richest families donating to cherry picked causes. If we taxed progressively, we could combat the growing income gap, allowing everyone the opportunity for financial self-determination.
We don't have to use force. Also, Canada is a socially-democratic country, which is very closer to socialism than capitalism.
Until we pay for everything out of pocket, we're not a capitalist country. Until all basic necessities are covered by taxes, we're not a socialist country.”

Napoleon3 on Jan 21, 2014 at 10:02:06

“Do you really believe that. We are not a socialist country. Capitalism is the reason why you are in fact in the top 2% of the world. Look in the mirror and go give away your wealth to a less fortunate before you want to take someone else's by force.”

And a third of the mice are brain-damaged enough to think they need guns to save them from the other mice.”

“How on earth does McNeil get an A+?
He's the first premier in over 20 years to start firing civil servants and appointing hand picked Liberal failed candidates to high paying government jobs that require a competition, he's begun the process to sell of protected habitats to developers, and has added a 500 million deficit to a balanced budget.”

“PEI pays more. The Higher GST and Lower Income tax are great for the province, because they skew equalization payments in our favour as well. I take in more income and spend less, so I'm a net positive. If you spend a lot on luxury type goods, I guess it would suck for you.”
