I feel this thread will really bring people together.
I'm an atheist and a right-leaning liberal.
a right-leaning liberal?
Yuppers. Fiscally conservative, socially liberal
same. someone told me I'm a red tory.
i actually like the sound of it but i gotta research it more before i fully commit to any party cuz thats how Hitler fooled everybody.
in regards to Trump.. Hitler doesn't work. he's more like baby hitler i.e. TITLER
They used to call that PC, but the current conservatives are hard right socially and fiscally dumbfucked
oh come on man nobody gets it? *taps mic* hellooooo baby? tit? TITLER?
Being fiscally conservative alone doesn't mean you're right leaning. Left or Right has more to do with amount of government intervention.
If you're fiscally conservative you should actually vote for left leaning parties who support stimulus and welfare programs that grow the economy as opposed to conservative policies of austerity which usually lead to a shrinking economy. You need to spend money to make money.
The PC knack for selling solid revenue streams for short term gain has kinda fucked us all- except in BC, that was the Liberals, but BC liberals are further right than most PC parties
Yeah BC libs weren't libs at all. Corrupt too.
Party lines seem to have vanished completely, there were always certain expectations of each party
Liberals are about scandals and overspending (but usually with surplus financing)
PC were about demanding fiscal responsibility while racking up debt and selling off crown lands and corporations
NDP were loud and responsible as an opposition, but kill business and raise taxes in power
Green are a huge fucking joke because they can’t put together a compelling message or win enough seats to be considered a real party
CPC want to privatize health care and eliminate universal coverage, turn us into America’s junior (Harper was shocked he couldn’t even start that process - stupid constitutional rules getting in the way of that and banning abortion)
Jason Kenney still doesn’t get that he’s obligated to work within the constitutional framework. Or that trickle down economics don’t work.
I don't like welfare. I believe in limited government
Welfare helps the poor. Welfare and labor unions created the middle class.
"Limited government" is something corporate lobbyists shout so they can rewrite the rules to suit their bottom line.
what would jesus do? (politically)
he would be a commie
The USA was built on Socialist principles
Although why they elected a fascist who admires Putin and Kim Jong Un baffles me
Only 23% of eligible voters voted for Trump.
