    don't want to sound like a war-monger, but look at what is happening south of the border with the drug cartel.hell,they own mexico.the government is letting big corporation build across the border and overseas because it is cheaper but we still pay the premium price.Obama said in his campaign that he was going to penalize companies that did that(haven't heard anymore on that have we). After 911 we should have just gone in there and leveled the mountains those terrorist were hiding in and been done with it,we wouldn't be in the war we're in now.And now the govt is going to pull troops out and just keep a small peace keeping force there,that's what the terrorist are waiting for,then they'll come back harder then ever.We may be the strongest nation but not in the eyes of the other countries,but they will be the first with there hands out asking us the bail them out.Our infrastructure is slowly breaking down.These movies you watch about the apocalyse and future (MAD MAX) will become reality b4 you know it.Look at revelations and it says "right will become wrong and wrong will become right.Just thought i would throw my 2 cents worth of venting.

    Well, the word Terrorism isn't what it used to be, today, it's used by the multi national corporations with the US govt. backing them up, the term/word is applied to anyone that opposes this new world order shit we all are suffering through. This Mexican border drug stuff will pretext us into a war down south at the border, and usher in a new border, a borderless border called the North American Union comprising Canada, US, and Mexico as one market, one govt., and one currency. Watch. It's going to happen.

    The thing with the middle east & terrorism is these people are very patient (hell they've been fighting for 3 thousand years) They have no respect for human life and will never stop killing, The United States is pissing in the ocean thinking we can change there attitude towards the west.

    But the alternative to us being over there is these animals coming here and killing inocent people. The current unrest in the middle east is just a ploy to take our attention away from what is really happening, we are loosing this country every day and we don't seem to care or are able to do anything about it!!

    I'm just waiting for the next shoe to drop..................God bless us all!!!

    Oh really? Who is going to do it? The people of this country have become compalcient (sp) and all think someone ELSE is going to do it for them. People talk about the tea party movement being too radical (which they probably are) but they at least have the right core idea, that we need some serious changes.

    There are 4 simple things that need to take place in this country that will fix the vast majority of our problems.

    1. Term limits for for public office including the Supreme Court.

    These people get into these offices typically retain the office simply because many people are too lazy to investigate the other canidates and vote for the guy currently in office because they know their name. These office holders are ALL corrupt to some degree and make boat loads of money in these offices and get unlimited contributions to their campaign funds to retain office for voting for the right bills that favor those that give them this money. PLUS what they get behind the scenes from these same people/corporations. With term limits the new office holder will be held to a higher standard to do what they claim they will do out of the box and with only one term in office there will be no need for future campaign funds and the corruption that comes with it.

    2. Election/campaign reform.

    No more "buying an office." Limits on the amount of money that can be spent on an election campaign. One public debate per office position so the canidates can state their position/intentions once in office. This will allow for the common man to be able to AFFORD to run for an office.

    3. Bill/Reforendum/Act reform.

    Most people have no idea of what things are hidden/tagged onto a bill they are voting for. They ASSUME it is all about the NAME of the bill, which the most powerful part of it seldom has anything to do with the name. If you think I am wrong take the time to READ the entire Patriot Act. You will be SHOCKED at how many of YOUR civil rights and personal privacy protection has been taken away with it.

    These Bills, Reforendums, and Acts NEED to be a one purpose item written in simple language with nothing hidden in them with pages of cover up that the common people will actually take the time to read and can understand.

    4. Tax reform.

    A simple income tax of the same percentage paid by ALL. No deductions for anything. Everybody pays the same percentage regardless of how much or how little they earn. Too many large corporations pay NOTHING due to their buddies making the laws for the tax write offs for them while the middle income wage earner bears the burden of supporting this countries bills.

    These things will FIX this country but WHO is going to make it happen? OH, thats right, SOMEONE ELSE will do it.:bootyshake::bootyshake::bootyshake:

    Screw the income tax thing. One way to fix this problem is a 10% sales tax on everything. Right across the board.That means every illegal who buys cerveza(beer) or liquor, cigarettes, even when they are on welfare are paying into the system.That will fix the deficit in no time.

    We've turned into a bunch of liberal pansies. We need to grow a set of balls and take back what's ours.

    The only problem with a national sales tax is that purchases that get charged represent a much smaller percentage of a wealthy persons gross income than that of a middle income family.

    The middle class gets it in the ass once again.

    You are right about the illegals though, they wouldn't be able to duck those taxes.

    And the loser welfare people also would be paying their fair share of taxes. You dont realize how many people dont pay their share of taxes. I know a few guys that dont pay a single penny of taxes and scam the government and make money.
    Just eliminate the income tax and tax all the goods they buy. That means every one pays their fair share.

    IMHO one of the main reasons the U.S. is in such horrible debt is due to that ridiculous trumped up war in Iraq your previous administration cooked up or fell for. "Back room influence" seems to have misled the government and the American people into believing in WMDs and 911 involvement. It now seems that the present Republican and Democratic parties are hoping and trying to do their best to dig the way out of the hole.
    Canada is completely self sufficient in oil. We buy NONE from any other country and yet our price is ALWAYS higher than yours.

    David, i think you are partly correct, IMHO entitlement programs and foreign aid are the other aspects that are sucking the $ out of our economy. and our socialist president ramming through all kinds of programs through our congress last year, but not having any $ to pay for them..

    I'm ignorant with your health care policies and programs.
    how much do you pay per month for a family plan in Canada?
    I pay $1850.00 per month for a family plan with a $50.00 co pay for office visits and $100.00 copay for emergency room visit.
    If you have free health insurance, your way ahead in the $$$ department.

    Hi Superstockracer,
    Our health care is "free" in a way.... taxes pay for it. It might work out to about $250-$500/family. Sometimes it is kind of slow getting specialized help but everyone gets all their basic medical care. If you need your appendix out, for example, you would go to "Emergency" and when all is done you would walk out the door and not owe a penny. When everyone contributes a reasonable share (if they can afford it), then 100% of us enjoy the benefit. Broken limbs... free, visit to a doctor for diagnosis when you are sick... free, heart attack... dealt with immediately and free! Show your Ontario Health Card and you are covered. Basically everyone has equal opportunity for care, whether they are a mininum wage worker at McDonalds or the CEO of a large corporation. Now in the U.S. where there is more "for profit" health care... I believe wealthy people can "purchase" advanced health care by paying large amounts of cash or by buying into private health care plans. Our system is a non-profit system so it tends to be a less expensive outlay with everyone contributing to the pot.
    From what I could discern... Obama tried to approach our health care system, but loud opposing voices watered it down so much that it has done you little good. I feel that much of your present system is fine for those who can afford it but does not provide for those who are financially struggling... not necessarily through any fault of their own.
    Our system, no doubt, has a great deal of "Socialist" undertone and that does not ride well with a large part of the American populace. It is your choice of course. Our system suits me and I have no problem giving a little help to my fellow Canadians by being a part of our Universal Heathcare System. You might liken it to helping other nations who at least show appreciation for the help we (Canada) and the U.S. give them... such as New Zealand recovering from their recent devastation.
    This how it is described......
    "Every Ontario resident with his or her primary and permanent home in Ontario is entitled and able to access emergency and preventive medical care under OHIP free of charge. Ontario residents may go to a participating doctor—essentially every doctor practising in the province—any time they wish (subject to the consent of the doctor) and the services are billed through OHIP to the government. It does not cover such areas as prescription drugs or dental care, although Ontario does have a drug insurance plan, for use as a "last resort", known as the Trillium Drug Program."
    David
