    I don't like it. Politicians use those topics to rile up their base. There are much bigger crises on the horizon, but political establishment wants to re-create political debates of 80s,90s...
    I don't think the debate on immigration is about demagogues riling up the base. Whether it's in Europe, the US or Canada, there are serious issues with legal and illegal immigration that need to be addressed. If anything, I would argue that politicians for years have quashed the public debate on immigration by claiming anyone who supports restrictions is a bigot and xenophobe but now the problems are acute and the politicians are being forced to deal with it cause, if they don't, they really won't like the next politicians elected to deal with it.

    As for abortion, again, I think if anything it's a portion of the base (on both sides) pushing politicians to act. NY and Virginia both passed extreme pro-abortion laws this year as well. Governor Coonman didn't to do that to rile up his base - he did it because if he didn't the base wouldn't vote for him next time.

                I'm a conservative. Not a Canadian conservative, a real free market, capitalist conservative. I follow American politics more than I do Canadian because I find Canadian politicians to be an absolute joke.

                If you can get outside of how you're told to think about a candidate and truly listen to them I think there is much to be heard and learned. I strongly disagree with Bernie Sanders, he's a devout socialist. But he speaks his mind and speaks to people. I dig that, everyone knows where he stands on issues. There's no hiding behind facades in order to get elected. He says what he thinks and lots of people agree with him. That opens up for healthy debate which I think is lacking in politics these days. It's become more about grand standing and buying votes than discussing ideas and the ideologies that drive them.

                That statement applies to all of the relevant politicians making the news these days, except for one. Donald Trump. That man is a rambling, ego maniac with no real message. He just says things in no logical order, he knows what people want to hear and just rambles on about it with no actual policy. However, what he is successful at is raising awareness and debate, I'll give him that. He's really opened up the discussion regarding ILLEGAL immigration in the U.S.

                So to start this thread, here are my thoughts on ILLEGAL immigration.

                When listening to conservatives talk about illegal immigration please try to keep in mind what they're talking about. It's people that crossed the border illegally and are taking jobs from those that are here legally. Not to mention it completely crushes those that are going through the immigration process LEGALLY. I often hear pundits say that conservatives are against immigration, which is ridiculous. No one I've seen has said they are against immigration, they are against illegal immigration. In a civilized society that provides many social benefits (whether you think they are sufficient or not is another story) there must be a legal process for admitting immigrants, especially if they will be requiring social assistance or taking jobs.

                Many people on the left trumpet Norway and Sweden as the staples of socialism and the model for societies around the world. Have a look at their immigration policies and see if you would meet their requirements, I can guarantee you wouldn't. No one does, they have some of the most strict immigration policies in the world.

                So to say it is racist to want to deport people that have come into the country ILLEGALLY is simply unfounded. Norway and Sweden would do it in a heart beat, and so should every country in the world. I'm not talking about refugees of war torn countries, or those in serious harms way due to highly unstable and dangerous circumstances. thats a different situation and developing countries should be accepting as many of those types of migrants as their system allows. I think most developed and civilized countries already do with varying degrees of success.

                Anyway, I've rambled on enough. Please try to keep the discussion civilized.

                My next post will be about Justin Trudeau so fasten your belts!
                Yawn.

                that any of you think ANY of these peeps are any different, you're crazy.
                Party politics died, literally years ago.

                What a joke it is to read 9 paragraphs of fluff about "conservatives" vs "liberals".

                Sorry I ranted, it just...it just makes me all fired up

                    The easiest way to stop all this nonsense is for Graham to subpoena for Joe Biden's, Pelosi's and Schumer's financial records (and their entire family's and all of their advisors) for the past 20 years. Be the end of all this in about 5 minutes. New rules.

                              Then they get yours. And your family's. And anyone else they don't like.

                              There's been a good reason we don't do stuff like this. But all of it's being thrown out cause of DRUMPF! Stupid. Like when prosecutors started investigations of political opponents to see if they could unearth anything and all the idiots cheering it on like there is no reason whatsoever why our criminal justice system doesn't work that way in the West.

                                I think the funniest, and most poignant representation of society is that the first major use of these Deepfakes was for Celebrity Porn ... because of course it was. Lol
