Of course, if the article was about America... hey, no problem! Piss and moan all you want. Over and over and over again. Because of course America is different. We never get tired of pissing and moaning about America. Besides, pissing and moaning about America can be a group activity. Everyone can play.




How is pointing out problems in MY government wrong.
I believe that I can make a difference in MY government by speaking to my representatives and voting (which I do).

Crying, about how another government is being run, dosent help that government change.


Quote:

We get, that you don't like the American government.
Good for you.
You have the option of NOT living there.




I also have the option of trying to change the parts of our government I dont like.
The bitching, your doing about Canada, isnt changing anything.

Quote:

I personally could care less about how the Americans govern themselves.
It makes NO difference in how I live my life.




If you live in the US then you should care more about your own government that you do about Canadas :rolleyes:


Quote:

But I don't want to change it. It can't be changed because too many Canadians are complacent and perfectly content with their lack of freedom and liberty.




From what I have heard from other people living in Canada it dosent seem to be that bad, or they would make changes to the system.

Quote:

As you can see from reviewing the comments of our Canadian contributors, they value the illusion of security and their ideal of forced 'equality" more than they value their personal freedom.




um...lets see, they havent got Muslim raticals trying to kill them
they are allowing civil rights to people that we don't
they don't have the DEA itching to get in their personal business

You right they are doing a much worse job in the security and civil right area than we are, my appologies :rolleyes:


Quote:

And that makes the Canadians and Euros in this forum who bitch about America look mature and intelligent?




I dont see Canada trying to invade countries on trumped up charges either.


Quote:

Are you an American? Do you bitch about America? Why don't you leave it and live somewhere else?




Because I believe that I can make a difference in how our government is run.

Are you saying, that moving away and bitching is a better option?


Quote:

If I had stayed in Canada I would be financially independent by now. I'd be retired with a nice house and a damn good chunk of change invested. Yes, even with the confiscatory taxes I could have amassed a million bucks or so in the last seventeen and a half years, and that's enough to retire on.




So, the taxation system isnt that bad afterall.

Quote:

Instead I came to a third-world country and ran a break-even windsurfing business, then worked six years as a bartender/ bar manager for anywhere between six hundred and twelve hundred bucks a month. I have nowhere near a million bucks and I'm not in a position to retire.




So, you would rather work than retire?

Quote:

I know it's hard for many to understand, but there are people in this world who act out of principle.




What freedoms do you have in America that you didn't have in Canada?

Phred doesn't live in America. I'm quite sure he lives in the Dominican Republic (the DR is apparently a bastion of freedom and liberty).

The character of this attitude, so far as it's possible to guess at, appears to be based on the view that Canada is developing in a way that its whole is becoming increasingly less than the sum of its parts.




What a stupid article.  Thanks for this blast from the past.

Not sure what the hell this person is trying to even say here.
