    someone’s gotta have a copy of “the web of disgust”. Wasn’t it posted a few years back?

    For what it’s worth I met my wife through RC and we have had the sexorz

    My wife and I met on RC

    And boing is 100% bang on, this place leans very vary very far left, which is why I don't spend a lot of time here either, and that's saying a lot as I'm fairly left socially

    Im not looking to spark a political debate.I don’t really follow politics. But I pay close enough attention to know what’s going on. It seems to me nobody is ever satisfied with whoever is running the country. So who should be Prime Minister? It seems everyone says “gotta vote for the lesser of the evils”

    I don't think 80‰ let alone 50% think Trudeau was a good choice, but easily that many feel that Scheer would have been a worse choice.

    Claiming people who voted for him “Say he’s a great choice” is putting words in mouths.

    he was the best choice out of the options we were presented with. Scheer had his hands in the cookie jar before he even stepped foot in office and refused to elaborate or offer an apology for it. If that’s the best the Tories can do then I guess they should be prepared to lose more elections. JT should have been beaten easily, the fact he wasn’t should be a wake up call. Put a decent candidate out and I’ll vote for them.

    It’s funny that I get labeled as far left, yet I’ve voted for 4 different political parties since I turned 18, including the Reform party and the Conservatives and also believe Brian Mulroney was one of the best Prime Ministers the country has had.

    Yet someone like Smokey who says he is “left socially” would vote for Scheer over Trudeau even though Scheer showed himself to be about as right socially as they get.

    At least it’s better in Canada than the upcoming election in the States. 2 bumbling idiots on both sides after a democratic primary that had so many promising options.

    Exactly and still think he is doing a great job. This country needs some serious election reform, I know the results of the election out here before the polls even close because Lower Canada and quebec decides how the country is going be run.
    The Electoral college system in the States has merit when dealing with type of unbalance. <-- that might be a trigger but:finger4:

    i think hes had a few missteps early on but am holding out to see how this all transpires. it seems like he tried the dirty shit flinging politics early on but i dont think the canadian public is going to embrace that like the americans do

    a NS PM would be great, but its so far down the list of issues that its basically meaningless.

    i also think rona ambrose would have been a good choice for leader as well

    I used to get random RC girls thanking me for whatever "I" wrote in their rep.
    I would play along like I said it, and tried to work whatever magic I had. I'm sure I failed most times but hey - shooters shoot

    Thats fair, and I never liked Scheer either, but after the complete shitstorm that was Trudeaus first term, I genuinely can't understand how someone could have voted for him.

    I would have loved Ambrose as party leader, but I think Mackay will do well hopefully

    My personal take on this (I could be completely wrong) - I’m going to make an assumption that most of your news feed (not just mainstream but things like social media) is more right of center which leads to a bias that Trudeau’s first term was an utter disaster whereas those, like myself, have a news feed filled with more left of center where any mistakes made by Trudeau were labeled as “missteps”.

    It leads to the visceral, “he’s a fucking moron” on one side and the, “he made some mistakes but he’s not as bad as the other guy” we see everywhere.

    I’ve had a few really interesting discussions with some Trump supporters recently - both folks I talked with are smart - well educated, caring, etc. - not at all the typical Trump supporter *I* see in the news - either a gun toting redneck or a dripping red lifetime republican. It hasn’t made me change my opinion on the man but it does change some perceptions on why they voted for him and we all agreed that our own media bubble enhances some of the deep rooted opinions more than we’d like to admit.

    Already in my Twitter newsfeed I see folks I know and respect responding to almost every Peter McKay tweet calling him out for being arrogant or whatever.

    Aside from bailing on election reform what made his first term a 'shitstorm' ? I don't recall anything earth shattering but maybe I'm forgetting something.

    I see both parties as constantly fucking up. The difference is how the answer when held to the fire. The liberals dance around the question and give an response that doesn't even come close to answering the question while the conservatives seem to just pretend that they aren't obligated to respond.

    I voted for him many times when he was in my riding however he hasn't really said/done much for me as of late. I feel like he's trying too hard to be the opposite of Trudeau/Liberal

    I mean if you look at the facts there, it's a pretty weak scandal. It was a costume party 20 years ago, a bunch of the people who were there (and also minorities) are on record saying they had a great time and it wasn't racist at all. Easy pickings for an opposing political party though. If any one of us looked back on our RC posts from 2003 we'd be mortified :rofl:
