    Oh believe me. It's getting frustrating that people are acting like I condone the behaviour! :lol:

    Don't engage him in this if you aren't ready for his level of crazy. I have said it before and I still believe that he is a narcissist and like one would, he denies it. I lived with one for years and while he is like the one I lived with and still very well know loves to debate/ argue depending on mood :lol: their similarities are uncanny.
    I know this is going to drag me into a HA debate but it had to be said.

    That’s a lot of words when you just could have said “I wouldn’t do that but I support them to the point where I’ll minimize it and blame the media for sensationalism”

    you’ve gone full right wing insane, the difference in your posts now vs a couple months ago is huge. You’re all about the team politics with absolutely zero objectivity. It’s not even worth trying to have a reasonable political discussion on here anymore.

    But they still believe all of Justin's stories and think the budget will balance it's self in 4 years and have no issues with him/them driving the debt up to $1.4 Trillion

    Funny cause after you posted this I took another CBC vote compass....

    Here are the results from 1 minute ago...

    Maybe you guys shouldn't be so quick to prosecute... I mean judge... Because of a difference of opinion over fucking gravel.

    I love how you ignore the posts stating no political allegiance and try to make it sound like we’re all card carrying liberals in love with Trudeau. I’m not happy with a lot of what trudeau has done. I don’t see O’Toole as a better choice. I’m going to take a closer look at the Halifax West candidates, especially now that Geoff Regan has retired and see if a local candidate decision can solidify my vote.

    mine is a carbon copy

    I don’t want a conservative govt, but I’m not going to photoshop OTooles head on a naked guy and post it on my Twitter along with other absolutely insane memes, or throw rocks at a candidate. The seething hatred and constant nonsense is what disassociates swing voters.

    I wish Trudeau wasn’t the head of the liberals, can’t stand the guy honestly.

    The last one I did I was closer to where GrifterGrifter is but this one doesn't surprise me I float around these two spots depending on my level of anger with the current gov. As long as I don't show up down near the PPC I will be fine.

    Not surprised. “Left of center” is basically how I think of myself when it comes to political discussions. I’ve voted Conservative & Reform when I was younger. I find my views trending left as I get older.

    Interesting. More left than the liberals seems odd to me considering I find a lot of liberal social policies bizarre lol

    Check the axis. You're further left eonomically but further right on social.

    I enjoy the memes, gifs etc... But I do recognize what they are. I'm no fool. Do I let myself get carried away sometimes? Sure. Do I run off at the mouth on rc and let the two trolls rile me up? Sure. But l am not some far right nutjob that wants to organize rallies to shoot paintballs at Trudeau.

    I'm the opposite. I was a hard-core liberal, then NDP voters in thr late 90s early 2000s but my views slowly leaned conservative as I got older in terms of Canadian politics.

    I still miss Jack Layton. Don't find Singh or the NDP party look anything like it did 15 years ago.

    But I also ended up liking Harper, despite recognizing he needed to go after his last term.

    I think supporting a basic income made me left economically. That's a pretty big question for a single answer though.

    Jack Layton federally and Alexa MacDonough (sp?) provincially in NS. Singh is better than some of the past leaders since Layton but not fantastic.

    Here is one I did a year ago, I don't give these much value I know I answered some of the questions a little higher just based on my anger over the whole election

    Loved seeing the PM call out rebel media for being a shithole of misinformation :bowdown: He was spot on.

    I'm shocked they got as far in the process as to be allowed to ask a question.

    Maybe it was set up to make Trudeau look like he was smart and tough on something. :kekeke:

    Rebels banned by the CPC. Hell even the UCP banned them.
