and trying to bring up me being an athiest(im not as if it matters) what does that have to do with anything? as if you, because your religous, have some sort of higher understanding and think your more empathetic than me forgeting that more people have been killed, tortured, molested, and turned into slaves, in the name of GOD, than anyother ideoligy in history lol. as if religious beliefs are what define or credit a person lol.

if relgion actually made a difference in how we do things then when an elected official makes an oath into office in canada what they first say is "I herby declare the the SUPREMACY OF GOD, and the rule of law" if you know anything about language and writing because the supremacy of god is before the rule of law that means that the supremacy of god is more powerful than the rule of law. which means about a million laws and acts are garbage because they come into conflict with this. but the bibles laws are a joke to the way our system is set up lol we forget that COMMON SENSE(common law) is what the bible is all about yet we forget it with every law we make lol anyway again why you would bring religion into this is beyond me. and plus the bible and most other religions all talk about how WE are the ones under god and the government is under us. most religions talk about how to be basically good, and be free(well under god anyway) lol most laws and governments are the opposite of what most religions teach lol religions DONT teach you to be slaves to the government, be slaves to corporations, be slaves to debt, and religions DONT TELL YOU TO give up the "RIGHTS" that god gave YOU(not the rights the government tricked you into thinking they gave you)God gave us our Rights not the government to decide what to do with them just for political correctness and other peoples feelings, religions teach the opposite of what you want for canada lol

and you say that american healthcare is crap because they DONT have socialized healthcare. man everypoint youve made has NO research involved before you write it. american healthcare is garbage because corporations(prescrption drug companies) have corporate control over there medical decisions and they charge people up to 10x more for operations, medication everything than we do. they are double, tripple charging for things they both need and dont need. so it isnt socialist healthcare that makes them the way they are its greedy poloticians(again) gready corporations(again)and greedy uninformed god complex doctors that look at people like cattle instead of people. we are a bit different here which when you say us voting on things would instantly make us american is a joke its still going to be canadians(who have bigger hearts andare nicer than americans) who would be voting on issues. it wouldnt automatically change our beliefs as human beings to make our own choices we wouldnt just turn into americans like a werewolf or something lol so when you say to me that i need to research the truth i think you should research the truth about EVERYWHERE not just a one sided socialist canadian view

I deapply regret not responding sooner ut I was so overwhelmed by so many words making so few points that stopped seeing any point in trying to enlighten you how ever this response is not for you but for those who are interested in personal enlightenment and for the policies of government to reflect concept of universal love. first I would like to say how disgusted I am to here people try to pin all the horrors of man kind on God. humans commIting horrors in the name of God is like a rapist saying I love you while he rapes you! Its a lie! but the sad truth is that so much evil has been done by humans using God as a scapegoat or excuse that if you reveal yourself as someone who loves God then you get condemned as an evil person yourself. the truth is that the enemy has most of its evil done in the name of God to drive people away form God and universal love. I see socialism as the beginning of spiritual politics. not the end of freedom. I hate it when people confuse the American govt with the American people. the thing that the American people and Canadian people have on common is that we hate our governments. Americans problem more so. it kills me to know that the secret governent is giving the American people this reputation as bullys and bigots. we forget that those hated yanks fought a war to end slavery, protested against Vietnam and started the occupy movement. unfortunately the American secret government and taken back much of what was won in that civil war. now even our own government has adopted the American government policies that give them their reputation as the worlds biggest asshole.

We have a indirect democracy, that's how I would label it. Why isn't this a problem? Because our Prime Minister doesn't have to worry about pleasing the minorities and addressing the whims of whiners, like the President of the United States has to in order to ensure his Presidency.

Essentially our democracy sacrifices a tiny bit of accuracy in favor of less beaucratic b.s. and I'm fine with that. I just don't like that our political parties can't seem to address the real underlying issues, they seem fixated on the symptoms and putting a bandaid on a wound that needs stitches.
