It must be to suck off the tit of all those insurance company's who are getting away with murder and paying people under the table. I'm guessing you make enough money to buy your dior jeans and still afford good heath coverage.
you know if your much vaunted healthcare system was in the united states, your candidate ron paul would tear down your shit-tacular socialized health care before ANYTHING ELSE the day he got elected.

that is a big part of why ron paul is awesome.

Hockey has three periods and, thus, two intermissions. No wonder Canada hates you liberal Americans... you're all so ignorant!

^hahahaha UNINHABITED?! lolz!

If I were an American Obama would get my vote. I think he can bring a lot of positive change to the US and he has impactful views on the war in Iraq.

It's logic vs emotion. Obama has the emotion vote hands down from people. But Ron Paul and Mccain have the logic vote down. Which ever appeals to you more. And just think... If Obama gets into office can you just imagine what constitutional rights will be taken away from the american people. The Second Amendment comes to mind! Our forefathers would be turning in their graves if they knew what was happening.

Not true Av...

From Mccain's campaign

We are a free people. This means that the rules we have agreed to live by are those made by the people themselves, not a small elite that claims to be wiser than everybody else. Our laws are legitimate precisely because they reflect decisions solemnly made by the people - in the case of Constitutional law, through the process of ratification and periodic amendment; in the case of statutory law, through their elected representatives in the legislative process. When applying the law, the role of judges is not to impose their own view as to the best policy choices for society but to faithfully and accurately determine the policy choices already made by the people and embodied in the law. The judicial role is necessarily limited and one that requires restraint and humility. As he said to the Federalist Society at the 2006 Convention, "[Judges] should be people who are humbled by their role in our system, not emboldened by it. Our freedom is curtailed no less by an act of arbitrary judicial power as it is by an act of arbitrary executive, or legislative, or state power."

One more...

John McCain believes that the right of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is a fundamental, individual Constitutional right that we have a sacred duty to protect. We have a responsibility to ensure that criminals who violate the law are prosecuted to the fullest, rather than restricting the rights of law abiding citizens. Gun control is a proven failure in fighting crime. Law abiding citizens should not be asked to give up their rights because of criminals - criminals who ignore gun control laws anyway.

Now I don't agree with him on everything, but I do with these.

Ron Paul is a doctor himself, he has more of an idea of what will work then these other guys. The funding for health care, and the special interests is what needs to change the most.

Hockey starts in early October, there is no such thing as a half time, but instead two intermissions between three periods. If your going to make fun of this typical Canadian stereotype then get it rite.

Hes not going to take away this right to bare arms. Hes trying to make sure that criminals don't get a hold of weapons, and keep streets safe by letting communities decide on safety measures. There is no reason for anybody to be walking around carrying an automatic weapon or something you'd see a TRAINER military officer using.

On Politico.com

Obama hasn’t taken a firm stand on the ban or on the case before the high court. “I confess I obviously haven't listened to the briefs and looked at all the evidence,” he told Gibson during Wednesday’s debate. “As a general principle, I believe that the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms. But just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can't constrain the exercise of that right.”

Sugarmann’s group filed a brief with the Supreme Court supporting the D.C. handgun ban, while Bogus is the lawyer for a group of scholars who also filed an amicus brief taking D.C.’s side in the case. Still another amicus brief supporting the ban was signed by a half dozen anti-gun-violence groups to which Joyce gave 14 grants totaling $3.2 million while Obama was on the board. Joyce’s grants to the groups — Freedom States Alliance, Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence, Iowans for the Prevention of Gun Violence, the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence and Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort — were mostly for state-based activities.

My favorite line is the last sentence in the first paragraph. Really shows his true character.
post #47 of 337
What was so bad about that sentence? All hes saying is that YES individuals have the right to bare arms, BUT like MANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, the state is allowed to put certain constraints. IE communities need this in order to make their streets safer. Its exactly like your individual right to own property, but the state has zoning laws so you can't just build anyplace on the property.

Did you even read what avatar wrote? Ron Paul stands diametrically opposed to your much-beloved health care system.
post #49 of 337
Linuxchild~ Your missing the point here. He is all about big government. This is just the start of the state or feds putting constraints on people. Why do you care so much about U.S. politics?

why not? it's our country
