Wed Dec 16, 2015, 12:13 AM

I'm Canadian, moderately "left", and I say this bluntly.

I know that it's "interference from abroad" and that those stung by it will be unforgiving.

What I see everywhere and esp. on the internet is that Hillary Clinton and her supporters don't like that Stephen Harper lost and Justin Trudeau won the recent Canadian election.
This matters.

Stephen Harper was Mr. Oil_Patch from the get go.
He was Mr. I'll_be_there_for_you for any US military adventurism, and he was Netanyahu's best friend simply out of truth toward Christian Fundamentalist religious ideals.
He was right out of The Simpsons and he's very much like Hillary Clinton.
He was a perfect Mr. Gray for the third way, and he did lasting damage.
Very lasting damage.

I'm just saying this, as bluntly as I can, that I see no difference between Hillary Clinton and Stephen Harper, except in lasting negative impact because the USA
has a greater and more influential economy.

1. Where the hell are you getting that load of nonsense?

I am an ardent Clinton supporter, and I'm thrilled that that helmet-headed keyboard playing ass who ran the Great White North got shown the door. I don't know a soul who isn't equally pleased. Most people viewed him as Bush-North.

Not sure where you're getting this "Some people say" shit, but maybe you need better sources.

And if you can't see any difference between Harper and Clinton, I suggest you get your eyes checked--soon. It could be glaucoma or worse.

13. It's not "outrage" -- I am dismissing your characterizations as utter, foolish nonsense.

I don't know a single Clinton supporter who has ever had a kind word to say about Harper. You can check the DU archives here, if you'd like--no one liked that asshole.

That's as absurd as saying "Bernie Sanders supporters were fans of Margaret Thatcher. Why? She didn't like federal solutions to local problems either."



I think you're pot-stirring, frankly. It's an unkind thing to do, that.

Either that, or you're easily duped by people who pretend to be Clinton supporters but who, in fact, have another agenda.

Whatever could that agenda be?

59. Yeah? And what's your point? He was Petit George.


You put up with that asshole Harper for WAY longer than we had to tolerate Porgie--and we had the good sense to shoot down his Li'l Buddy McCain and his wingwoman, Caribou Barbie, and elect Barack Hussein Obama, instead.

I'm not going to blame you for not knowing US history or current events--you're not from USA, so that is not your charge. But you really might make an effort, while posting on a Democratic Politics board in USA, to at least understand the TIMELINE of events. Clearly, you're having a bit of a struggle with that.

See, your little pal Harper was elected--by YOU guys--at the height of the worst excesses of the Bush administration, in Feb 2006. You finally unloaded his sorry ass just last month.

It took you nearly 12 years to get rid of the little shit.

I think you're hardly one to lecture us about our issues, when you tolerated that slimy jerk for so very long. Maybe you should work a little harder on the home front--all politics is local, you know.

Put your OWN house in order....EH? Get cracking!

179. It was harder for the Canadians to get rid of Harper because they don't have a

two-party system like we do and the anti-Harper vote in previous elections was split. Finally they got it right this time and did some strategic voting, but I would not be too hard on the Canadians who never expressed majority support for Harper in any election. Also the Liberals had been weakened by scandals and were in no position to put up a good fight.

303. You are complaining to the wrong person. I happen to support our two party system although

right now we don't have two legitimate parties, only one. But Canada's parliamentary system is the predominate system around the word and it works well in a lot of places. Parliamentary governments in Western Europe brought universal health care to those countries decades ago.

306. I am not complaining--simply making an observation. Nearly 12 years of Harper was TOO much.

There should have been more political will to unload that ass.

I know that 12 years of George Bush would have destroyed America.

As it is, it's taken Obama most of his Presidency to undo the sick stuff that ass did--starting with stem cell research ban repeal, and ending two wars, cleaning up his shit at Gitmo, etc. And he's done it fighting the GOP tooth and nail.

"control" you, then you go ahead and knock yourself out doing their bidding.

What's smug and condescending is the entire premise of this nasty, unsubstantiated thread. And if you can't see that, I can't help you with that, either.

175. Harper was a special breed

He definitely would have sent troops to Iraq. He criticized the Liberal government at the time, after 9/11, when he was leader of the opposition for NOT joining the US in their Shock n Awe adventure. When he finally had power, he only started out as what we call a "minority government" and could not garner enough support for it. And then when he finally won a majority government, when he could have, the Iraq war was already turning into a quagmire and getting bad press, and so he didn't push it anymore.

But make no mistake, if Harper had had his majority one term sooner, we would have joined other Commonwealth nations like the UK and Australia, no questions asked (literally).

That's a rather important point--pull the string.

This quarter's mantra is apparently Hillary is a conservative and evil (which, considering this has been their mantra against Obama for the last EIGHT YEARS, you have to give them serious props for originality ).

You can have just crawled out of a mud hut in Slovenia and barely know the language but if you can somehow work a "Hillary bad" into your tortured English, this crowd will love you forever. It's kind of pitiful.

We already have a two tiered health care system, one for the rich and the poor will likely die before they get a consultation As to an MRI in BC, might as well give up and to see a specialist, you have to wait for six months. I think Gordon Campbell initiated this shit when he got elected as the Premier of BC. Now he is enjoying his stint in London as Canada's High Commissioner to the UK.

94. That is a crying shame. I actually know someone from Canada

who did like Maggie Smith in the Best Exotic Magnolia Hotel movie, and went to INDIA for a hip replacement. I was shocked when I first heard this, but it was going to be a six month wait (I guess how long you wait depends on where you live and how many slots are available--you obviously know how this works better than I do), and he did not want to wait that long (he was using a wheelchair he was in such pain)--so he combined a vacation with an operation. It worked out well for him. He really did up India once he got through the bulk of the post-op PT. I think they said he could fly across the country and go get the operation somewhere else in Canada...but I'm vague on the details--it was a while ago.

Is it customary for the PM to recall everyone and either reissue their appointments or send them home, or would the guy in London be like our Fed Chair, who runs out a term as Chair and then either gets reappointed or goes back to a seat on the Board of Governors?

Read my response to their post.

And on the OP, I also do not agree. Harper was a psychopath. My opinion is that Sanders is preferable for moving all of North America forward progressively in general. That said there may be some cross-over with their hawkish stances, but no way does THIS Canadian think Hillary Clinton is anywhere close to the small-minded pig-headed turd that was/is Stephen Harper. In fact it is the Liberal Party, who is now in charge, who has historically been a "third way" type of governing party much like a Clinton Democrat. Like Obama, and I suspect Hillary, they promise all kinds of progressive change, here it is done in order to take votes from our most left wing party the NDP, and then once in office cater more to big business. (Trudeau was "disappointed" that Hillary withdrew her support for Keystone) But they at least temper it with not denying uncomfortable truths like global warming and do not rely on fear mongering, xenophobia, and other Con tools to push through their policies.

173. WTF? Our health care system in Canada would be a huge improvement for our friends in the USA

Of course after a decade of cuts by our Conservative overlords, it has been strained to the limit. But it is STILL much cheaper overall, and STILL covers every citizen from birth to death. How is this not an improvement? How is finally adopting the principle that healthcare, like primary education, is a right and not a privilege, not a step forward?

Do you have to wait sometimes for a year for a non-emergency surgery? Yes. I had to wait almost a year for a knee surgery. But a life-threatening injury or illness, you are treated right away. Its a small price to pay for living in a country where you never have to worry about healthcare bills. Even when unemployed, between jobs, and poor. Where you never have to worry about changing doctors, or private companies telling you, sorry, they can't cover you because of some precondition.

Yes, under the Cons, they have privatized as much as they can get away with, like blood testing and xrays etc.. but The Canada Heath Act remains intact. Yes if you have enough money you can travel and/or pay more somewhere else for quicker service. But that would go on regardless.

Sounds like you have swallowed Harper's bait. Like all Cons, they con you into thinking social programs are "unsustainable", and spreads talking points like "its going down the toilet" and then defund them to the point that their prediction starts to come true. Its the same everywhere, as our friends down south will attain to. I expect with Trudeau and more sane leadership, things will improve again.

304. Can't you travel for the surgery too? Go from one area where there are too many

people to another region where there are fewer, if you do not want to wait?

I think Canadian Health Care ain't bad at all--I think many Americans would like it. They might gripe about the tax burden, though. You've come up with it, so it's part of the landscape, but people in USA are freaks about taxes and have been since Saint Ronnie of Raygun made them as unwelcome as child molesters.

It's why so many people live in FL and NH--they don't perceive that not paying a "state income tax" means that they'll be gouged in other ways (e.g property taxes, meals taxes, gas taxes, etc.)--but they feel as though they have "control" over their expenditures.

I hope Trudeau does well. He seems like a really nice guy.

322. Yeah you may be able to do that.

Of course most of the surgery locations are located in major cities, so it may not be much less of a wait.

But as far as Americans accepting paying more tax: I think Democrats have done an abysmal job at explaining that Single Payer is actually lighter on the wallet in the long run. Its why the armed forces are funded "socialist" Americans have no problem pooling their money to pay for national security in order to buy in bulk for uniforms, weapons, planes etc.. as opposed to the more expensive and discombobulated option of each State being responsible for paying for and running their own sub-armed forces, or worse each one was privately funded and run FOR profit (Join the Trump Troops today!). If they could just be convinced that their own healthcare should be a right and not a privilege. That it is just as important as national security. I mean they pay half their taxes on the MIC, and that is even after we hear stories about nuts being invoiced at $2,043 each

http://articles.latimes.com/1986-07-30/news/vw-18804_1_nut

Other items offered in the catalogue include a $285 screwdriver, a $7,622 coffee maker, a $387 flat washer, a $469 wrench, a $214 flashlight, a $437 tape measure, a $2,228 monkey wrench, a $748 pair of duckbill pliers, a $74,165 aluminum ladder, a $659 ashtray and a $240- million airplane.


Also, admittedly, once a tax is hidden in general income taxes, it becomes less of an issue.

323. I don't blame (only) the Democrats. People just are cheap bastards.

They believe that they will never get sick, they don't want to pay for "those people" (especially the dusky and/or non-Xtian) when they get sick; they are "hardworking" while those "others" are "freeloaders."

They just don't CARE about "the long run." They think "insurance" is something that a fat guy with greasy, thinning hair rips them off for--they think their car will never crash, their house will never burn, no relative will ever need an organ transplant. And if any of these things DO happen, why, GAWD will provide. They'll put a big jar down at the diner, they'll raise money at the church, and if it's a medical issue, why, they'll just walk away from the bills.

Having been inside the Defense Department "structure" and seeing how things work, it will require an army of accountants (and I'm not kidding--we probably need to actually offer commissions to accountants, give them strict oversight instructions, and have them report to a four star "accountant" in the Pentagon--and this is OUTSIDE the "logistics" chain of command completely) to even get a handle on "overspending." The three hundred dollar screwdriver sounds great on the news, something to point at and wail about, but all around the services there's a shitload of waste going on at the unit and command levels. It's not just the BIG MIC--it's the little MIC, too, the local MIC. I am NOT an accountant, but every command I was ever at where I had enough rank to put my paws on the cash, I was able to cut/slash/burn and re-allocate. I never gave the money BACK, of course (that would be INSANE given the way the current structure is), but I saved money and re-applied to other, better things. I wasn't quite a legend, but I was damn good at it. I'm not the only one who knew how to play this game--but the trick is to make the game unnecessary. You can't do this with 'civilian' accountants--there's something about the UCMJ that encourages purity of performance. It's not a guarantee, but it's helpful.

In any event, the MIC won't go gently into that good night, either. Eisenhower was right--the military-industrial-CONGRESSIONAL-complex is a problem. And the biggest problem is CONGRESSIONAL. Even the purest of the pure can--and are--co-opted. Pork for your state? Just look the other way; make an excuse that "everyone is doing it anyway." The system is rigged so that everyone gets a taste, everyone is "in on it," and everyone--particularly those involved in appropriations (and all money is allocated from the House)-- is invested in keeping the con working for as long as possible. So, you've got 435 clowns in the House, all "in cahoots" and you've got 100 other assholes in the Senate, cheering on the system, investing in the corporations through "blind" (cough) trusts, watching their children and spouses get fat paychecks from these bums, and touting the "benefits to the state" for engaging in this long con game. The system most certainly IS rigged, and it's the "lawmakers" -- not those evil MIC guys (who only do what they can get away with)-- who have done all the rigging. Even the so-called "purists" (and I look at my own party with this very jaundiced eye) are every bit as guilty as "the other guys." All Congress has to do is Just Say No. But they won't --why? Because part of that pork--aside from the outright graft and the campaign donations-- is JOBS. And JOBS bring VOTES. It's a vicious cycle.

We've got a cadre of people who are going to fight "social programs" tooth and nail, too--they don't want "the gubmint" telling them they have to pay to help others, and that's how they see it. Frankly, I think gun control is an easier fight--and that's going to take forever. I doubt I'll see that in my lifetime to any meaningful extent.

The way to approach these problems, though, isn't to demand "revolution." People are uncomfortable with that--they reject that "To The Barricades" shit. They don't go for the fist-shaking, demanding, hot-breathed rhetoric. It gets their back up. It invites push-back. Better to go round back, slide in the back door quietly, sneak on in and have a quiet seat at the table, and chip away, bit by bit, at the infrastructure. When you do things INCREMENTALLY, people tend not to notice--look at the Patriot Act, after all!

The way to approach this is the same way you would eat an elephant--one forkful at a time. It takes longer, certainly, but the job gets done, eventually. And the results stick.

331. thanks for the explaination

It looks like I hit a sore spot with that MIC overspending comment! Sounds like you did the best you could have within that corrupted system.

Anyways, you raise some good points. Its true, at the risk of being generalizing and stereotyping, Americans are different than Canadians in their spirit of "I did it my way". Its actually one thing we admire in you'all. But it also means you are frustratingly stubborn to the detriment of your own benefits.

Another way to look at the FREEDOM argument is that when you can rely on the people you elect to manage your taxes for the necessities, you are more FREE to work on other things in your life, and with less stress. You don't have to organize your neighbourhood to raise money to fix a bad road, you don't have to raise money to pay for your own private police, or firefighters. Or to pay for public school. It is worth it in the time and effort for citizens to hire representatives to take care of all that if you just pay a part of your salary to them. There must be a way for more progressive politicians to explain that the same is true for ones medical services. That one is actually FREER in life when basic needs are provided by everyone pooling their money to take care of those things.

And I have also heard that businesses also benefit greatly when bidding for jobs internationally, and the world is rapidly becoming a global economy. Despite Republicans and some Democrats saying its not good for capitalist business. Why? Because businesses in Canada, and Europe, and other countries, who have single payer ingrained into their structure, and paid for in the general revenue of the country, means that the more expensive private medical insurance that American companies pay to their employees must be included into their bids. So they have a disadvantage. This also should be explained properly.

I belong to another group on FB that's "closed" not because we tell secrets, just because it's for a tennis player we all love and show our support for. He's the Number One player in the world and we started our own little family because he was continually being attacked viscerally because he had the audacity to rise to the top over Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Anyway, that being said I've become friends with so many people from so may other countries and they know who I support and my concerns for this country. Given what you said I need to tell you that many, many countries have begun to view America very negatively. Countries who were never involved in OUR WARS and aren't fleeing oppression to come to this country.

Be careful when saying "My Country, Right Or Wrong!" America is being viewed more and more as War mongers and they find it disturbing. I'm not saying this because I support Bernie, I'm saying this because I'm a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN of this country and I'm unable to disagree with them. I'm big on the environment and I can't begin to tell you how many times they've asked me what I think about ALL the pollution WE spread around with our bombs. AND, wonder why WE sell weapons to countries that WE go to war with!

I can only say I don't agree with WAR as a solution and as a Boomer I'm VERY aware of what Viet Nam was all about. I recall it being said that this country will NEVER do it again! OH WELL, that went well didn't it?

Not trying to pick a fight with you, just making a point. AND, I won't argue back and forth with you... just needed to make this point.

If you would take the time to read my words, I was talking about people, here, on DU, to include Clinton supporters, who DISLIKE Harper, have for years, have said as much, and think he's George Bush's evil little twin.

I think, if you're not trying to pick a fight with me, accusing me of saying things I didn't say, and holding attitudes I don't hold, is pretty frigging uncivil.

And I am being as straightforward with you as I can muster when I say this--I think you were out of line, and/or didn't read what I had to say very carefully at all.

He's not going to find any love from HRC on that score, I'm afraid.

You'd think he'd work those "liberal bonafides" and start trying to shift to something a bit more sustainable. They do a lot of hydroelectric generation up that way; maybe they should do more, still...?

166. As SOS, she intended to approve Keystone.


Speaking on Oct. 15, 2010, with the Commonwealth Club, a public forum in California, Clinton took a question asking if the administration would be willing to "reconsider" the pipeline. Here’s Clinton’s response:

"Well, there hasn't been a final decision made. (Crosstalk) Probably not. And we -- but we haven't finished all of the analysis. So as I say, we've not yet signed off on it. But we are inclined to do so, and we are for several reasons -- going back to one of your original questions -- we're either going to be dependent on dirty oil from the Gulf or dirty oil from Canada. And until we can get our act together as a country and figure out that clean, renewable energy is in both our economic interests and the interests of our planet -- (applause) -- I mean, I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone how deeply disappointed the president and I are about our inability to get the kind of legislation through the Senate that the United States was seeking

And it's amazing how the Secretary of State has the power to "sign off" on stuff that is the prerogative of the POTUS.




Only on DU does "there hasn't been a final decision made" mean "She intended."


When she's not the one who OKs the deal, either.

To paraphrase the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the OP is entitled to her own opinion, but not her own facts.

I don't know what kind of nonsense you are going on about or implying with Hillary supporters "covering their tracks" but it sounds very silly.

The bottom line is the OP lied, made an extraordinary charge, and has offered no defense or supporting evidence.

I'm not sure exactly what it says about the widespread beliefs of Bernie supporters to have all these recs on a Trump style lie filled attack aimed at Hillary and her supporters, but I don't think it is good.

I'm Canadian, moderately "left", and I say this bluntly.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251901560

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

This post is intentionally disruptive. If this person sees "all over the Internet" that Clinton supporters are upset that Trudeau won, than surely they could have posted ONE single link that proves that. this is just shit stirring and the idea that Clinton is the same as Harper is just a asinine

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Wed Dec 16, 2015, 12:36 AM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Oh ffs, stop it, alerter.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: One of the worst alerts I've witnessed. Take a bow, alerter.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The post might be a little off-topic but it's certainly not disruptive, hurtful, rude, etc.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I don't agree with the poster but I see nothing there to suggest this is intentional pot stirring. Just a dude with an opinion.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: does not rise to hide status for me

317. Same group

Had the same amount of hate and hostility towards president Obama. Then then turned that same "quality" on to Hillary. They hate the party, want to purge it of anyone who doesn't think like they do, and the only thing they do is "divide" the board here on DU. Most of the Bernie supports are really good people and they don't bash and trash on a daily basis. As for the "haters" I really don't think their agenda is putting more democrats in office.

And a certain growing trend.

Oh I know, Hillary Rodham Clinton is "unapologetically progressive" again, having recently been "unapologetically centrist", and before than having been "unapologetically progressive", or am I mistaken?

I'll say one thing for Harper, he wasn't that kind of liar.

If it's all over the internet, you must be able to find any number of links that support that assertion.

BTW, I'm an American living in Canada. I have more than a passing familiarity with the man's policies - and to say that he and HRC are "identical in outlook" is beyond laughable.

When that happened, Harper was on cloud nine, he shut out the media and Canadians had to accept his authority. Next thing you know, four years later, Canadians voted Harper in again. The Dems did not have a trustworthy leader and the Liberals also did not. Mr. Dion, who is now our Foreign Affairs Minister was the leader of the Liberal Party and he had to step down because of that asshole hole who lived in the US for 25 years was trying to get the leadership of the Liberal party, cannot remember his name now.

Regardless of all the turmoil, we are now back on track and we have a leader who will represent us.

92. It is clear to me that delrem's goal was to roil and boil.

He's made some ugly and untrue charges and not backed them up with anything save his shoddy opinion. I don't think much of this 'tactic' frankly.

And he has no answer to Canada's failure to clean their OWN house. Facts are facts--Canada tolerated Le Petit Bush way longer than we tolerated the real and BIG one. And I didn't see delrem out on the front lines, railing about how awful Harper was--but he's suddenly got time to come here and make a spurious (and completely unsupported) association between a departed Canadian PM and a POTUS candidate who have absolutely nothing in common. There's a name for people who do that on message boards, and it's not very nice.

You have just elected a leader who has six months of a honeymoon to try to start to clear up the mess Harper made--and you all should be VERY happy, indeed....but I can guarantee you that this is going to happen as soon as that honeymoon ends--if not sooner:

1. He's going to fuck a few things up. All new leaders do this, even ones who are "legacies" like the Son of Pierre. Some people may even try to trip him up, just to be assholes. It always happens. People will try to make any missteps seem worse than they actually are, just for cruel sport and political advantage.

2. He's going to disappoint some of his more liberal supporters, because he WILL make compromises. Yes--he will. This doesn't make him EVIL, it makes him accountable to the entire nation and not just one sector.

3. He's going to infuriate people who think he's not doing what he promised, and he's going to enrage others who think he's overreaching. Where these angry people stand depend on where they sit.

4. If he's even a third as smart as his Deddy, he will do OK. He had one smart Deddy....and his Mama was no fool, either. Wild, mainly as a consequence of her mental health challenges, but no fool!


I wish the guy the best of Canadian luck--I hope he's able to make a bit of headway and that the movers and shakers give him a little room to do some moving and shaking.

Gosh, apart from Daddy Trudeau and Jean Chretien, this is the first time I feel that Canada is on the right track. We have always been humane and am glad we got a PM who is equally for world peace. I never thought our PM will be at the airport to welcome the Syrian people, that was amazing.

It's early days and time will tell if he could lead us but rest assured, most of us are backing him. I do like his policies and perhaps he may not be able to meet his promises to the Canadian people, however, as an older person, I really respect Mr. Trudeau. The Canadian Senate will not be as nasty to him as the US Congress did to President Obama. President Obama tried to work with those assholes and all they wanted from day one was to stifle anything he wanted to pass to make America better. Well, if that trump shit gets elected, then the lowlives will know how their lives will get worst.

Never thought that the country which was respected worldwide now has a group of assholes vying for the Presidency. Am not religious, but God help America if anyone of those low lives is going to be the gop nominee!

You know what I really wish for -- for President Obama to close Gitmo and hand over the land to the Cuban people! That will make most of the gopers go batshit crazy!

I thought he was a swell fellow. I liked his temper--he could get pissed off when called for. He was sincere.

Smart as hell, too! I know he had trouble towards the end of his era, but one thing I remember most fondly was his denial about Bush, words to the effect of "Bush is not a moron!" Apparently one of his deputies was overheard saying that, and Jean was placed in an uncomfortable position of clarifying.

It made for some hilarious headlines -- on the lines of Canadian PM Insists that Bush is Not a Moron.

I am so happy that we have Mr. Justin Trudeau as our PM, he is young but knows what he is doing.

Frankly Trudeau seems great for Hillary Clinton. He had challenger from the left (the NDP) and tried to steer a middle course. Sounds a lot like the Third Way and it's those kinds of things that keep me from supporting Hillary.

57. I seriously doubt most Americans even know who they are

let alone have opinions about Canadian politics. I feel pretty certain polls would confirm as much. You see what you want, and for some reason what you want to believe is that Clinton supporters--who are in fact the great majority of Democrats--are somehow less. So now you'll get lots of recs from others who share your contempt for that same majority of Democratic voters. Once again we see the enemy is not corporations, capitalism, or any power structure but ordinary American voters, who happen to be less advantaged than the more affluent and whiter demographic that supports another candidate.

We get it. That message has been communicated very clearly in a myriad of ways. Once again we see a political ideology build around a hierarchy of human worth, which betrays the hollowness of rhetoric about greater equality.

As for the random Americans whom you've seen comment online, their views on Canadian politics are no more relevant than your views on our elections.

My bad!

eta: but I take them at their word, and they are universal in their acclaim for Justin Trudeau's political leadership and program as evidenced so far.

I'm amazed. It in fact is contrary to Hillary Clinton's "plans" in just about all ways. Justin Trudeau's Liberals are a little to the left of Bernie Sanders, and Stephen Harper was/is a little to the left of Hillary Clinton - IMO of course. If Canadians used mungy third-way words to describe politics, Trudeau would be "a centrist", as it's seen up here. Not exactly a "socialist", as per the NDP, or even decidedly "left" as the left is defined here. We're waiting to see and as someone said to me "He's a wild card. Look at his mother, first, then at his father."

But jeez, it's nice to be rid of Harper and that kind of myopic corporate extremism.

What this election did was put a STOP (sorry for the caps) to the "swing to the right" of Harper's Reform/Conservative rule, which ruled Canada essentially as a company town taking orders from absent owners.
A bit like Hillary will rule the USA, except only as an echo in comparison, I'm afraid to say. That STOP is something, but otherwise not all that substantive.

Substantive was that on his first day he contacted Obama to explain that Canada would no longer being doing bombing runs in the ME. On his FIRST DAY. I didn't believe it when I read it first on DU and said so, and was chastised when a few hours later I got "a better link". So I know about "proofs" and "links" - and that I got caught out badly in my wording of this OP.

The invasion of Iraq was a war crime, the writing was on the wall and millions protested, but those fuckers chose to invade a country that was never a threat to the US. Now they cannot admit their failure and take responsibility for fucking up the Middle East. Then when the people start fighting back, they are terrorists.

Got to tell you, as compared to President Obama, I just love our PM! I saw him at Pride this year and he looks much younger than on TV. He makes promises and he keeps them and we are backing him.

By the way, ever since Clinton attended the "Family" prayer rounds, she was Mrs. Gray for the third way - including her abiding opposition to gay marriage until at last it became a danger to her electability.

You would do better to compare Harper to any one of the GOPer candidates than to ANY Dem candidate.

That said, I am a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter who is delighted that Justin Trudeau won in Canada. Every other Hillary supporter whom I know personally - and there are a heckuva LOT more of us lifelong Dems who are Hillary supporters than you might think if your only reference is DU where the Bernie supporters seem to be in the fore - is also delighted.

I have no idea where you get your hearsay about Hillary supporters not being happy about Harper's loss. But it is simply false. My many Canadian friends/colleagues could tell you that too.

I have no idea whether Hillary personally supported Harper or Trudeau in the recent election. I simply think it's laughable to believe that large numbers of her supporters (or most Americans) invested enough time and interest in the recent Canadian election to form an opinion one way or another.

247. I know, I know....

just having a bit of fun ad pretending something I'd read on DU that is both unsourced and devoid of any kind of reason could have swayed me in one direction or another. In fact, if it hadn't been you who responded to me, I would have asked for a link to prove it untrue, but you foiled my evil scheme!

248. Well I'd like to think that half of those recs are ironic but this place passed that point a long

time ago. It's gone around the bend so damn far it's halfway back again.

236. Frankly, you have jumped the shark and

I'm sure there are many Sanders people who will latch onto this....to them, grow up, use your brains, FOR ONCE!

And, yeah, I sure did support Harper, NOT....

The idiocy on DU has reached new heights....

Didn't think so.

243. Thank you, delrem. I have friends in Montreal

 

who have told me the very same about Harper. They are very happy and excited for their country. I hope this country can also
vote for the person who will make us proud.

257. Seriously? I've never heard anything from a single Clinton supporter to suggest this.

Show me a single true Clinton supporter that wanted Harper to win. I am a Clinton supporter and I was thrilled by Trudeau's victory.

262. Hillary is definitely part of the ruling class.

She supports the left though she's leaning to the right. And all that money she's collected from speaking fees to Wall Street corporations will have absolutely no effect whatsoever on her policies. Honest. Now, was it Abe Lincoln or George Washington that never told a lie?

You should lock this one too, and suggest it be posted in the CT forum.

292. Well, here we all are.

Almost 24 hours after this was posted, and you still haven't come up with a single link to support what you've asserted.

But this is, of course, the new DU - where 235 posters have "rec'd" an OP that has asserted a "fact" that has no basis in reality, and absolutely no evidence to support it. That pretty much says it all about who's posting here, and how interested they are in actual facts.

There was a time when DemocraticUnderground was a site for Democrats. Alas, those days are gone forever - along with the days when posters demanded facts, instead of K&Ring every OP based on unsubstantiated bullshit.

And that probably explains this:

302. Please, don't think this is creepy....

 

.. but's it like you're in my head.

There's nothing to be done with this. I just say, let it play out. We've (especially you) have done our part, and we'll keep working, way beyond the primaries.

307. No worries here.

DU stopped being representative of Democrats and the Party years ago - and everyone pretty much knows that.

I now come here to see what "the other side is saying" - which saves me a trip to FR or other RW sites.

318. Yep. Bernie's supporters here have driven DU into the ground. DU is unquestionably theirs and this

 

is what they have done with/to it.

They are unable to build anything. They only know how to destroy.

327. To be honest

Most of the Bernie supporters are great people, but there is group that "claim" to be supporting Bernie, but they are also the same group that trashed and bashed Obama on a daily basis, then they went after the party and wanted to "purge" anyone that did not meet their purity test. Of course when Hillary came along it was only natural for them to take up the trashing and bashing with her. I highly doubt that they are trying to get "any" democrat elected. They have their own agenda and it is pretty easy to see.

I like Bernie, but I can't hold him responsible for the actions of these clowns who are trying to destroy DU with their outlandish behavior.

305. You are freakin' delusional...

You don't need to lecture us about who Harper is...Many of us know. We're not clueless, and I don't know a single Clinton supporter who "doesn't like that Stephen Harper lost."

As for equating Harper and Clinton, that is truly idiotic.
