It's truly depressing but then again you have people that have believed what Romney has said all along and haven't even noticed his constant changing positions.

I'm extremely bothered by the viral campaigning done on news site comment sections. So much rhetoric and lies spewed everywhere. If Romney does win the next 4 years are only going to be worse too.

Sorry to say this to you but I wouldn't be surprised if Romney would know some french (wasn't he a missionary in France for his church). Plus we elected a this year a prime minister than would need a translator to understand english. Even Steven Harper can speak both our official language.

Well I know but if Romney wins we'll be seeing it from the left instead of the right.

Probably linked to views on Obama's father, who was a Kenyan government official at some point.

This.

Romney's lack of popularity in Canada has nothing to do with language. Canadians also remember how often Canada was not treated as an equal when a Republican President was in power (especially what happened in the Arrow Project in the late 1950s), and Republicans also embody a lot of things we Canadians don't want debates to be re-opened (eliminating the right to abortion, eliminating social policies, eliminating gun registration, etc.). The fact that Stephen Harper and his people are going in line with Republican-type politics, it's putting them into a bad position in provinces other than Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They are just in power because other parties have yet to find strong leaders. Historically, the Liberal Party of Canada held power for most of Canada's existence since 1867.

That and the fact than the 3 provinces the Conservators control are the one growing both in population and power.

Aren't they the ones with the Tar Sands oil? Being dependent on one resource is not sustainable growth imo.

Ask that to Stephen Harper. He's one fool I can't wait to get rid of once the Liberals will have a strong leader. Canada should focus their efforts on being better in the tertiary sector of industry; that's a different way to make money. The Swiss and the Japanese already understood that.

edit: When should we have new polls about US voting? I sure had a hard time believing the numbers prior to yesterday's debate didn't change after the time Romney got battered in the second debate.

We've almost achieved a fact-free election cycle where fixed ideology trumps everything. ... whee ...

Mourdock: Rape Pregnancies ‘Something That God Intended to Happen’
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.co...t-god-intended
Quote:
At the final debate in the Indiana Senate race, held Tuesday night, Republican nominee Richard Mourdock explained his opposition to abortion in the cases of rape or incest. In the course of the explanation Mourdock suggested that rape should not be an exception to a ban on abortion, since rape pregnancies are themselves the will of God.

And it seems "God's Will" trumps anyone's Rights.

Sadly the protein isn't the problem nor have any link to the ''manlyness'' of such specimen. Testosterone in another hand...

No kidding. Why even bother having laws in the first place, as per their logic everything is God's will, therefor everything is "working as intended".

That dude that just killed a bunch of people in the hair salon? he's not a criminal, he's just doing God's work!

Sorry ... the fake beards and stones were a reference to Monty Python's "Life of Brian" (the women would wear beards so they could attend the stonings)

And I can't blame "testosterone" for their views. These *misogynists* simply hate/fear women -- domination and control of women appear to be basic vectors in their lives.

Oh really?
Shows how little that idiot knows about his own religion.
Considering the story in Genesis 34 of when Dina was raped by Shechem (son of Hamor), Jacob's two sons (Levi and Simon) went back to the city of Hamor and killed every man in the city. Took the women and children as slaves, and stole all their possessions.
Now I ask you, do you think G-d gives a hoot about killing a child from a rape before its born if he'll condone the destruction of a whole city over one rape?
I realize the story is a parable/lesson about how severe rape is and why it's wrong, but my point is that the fruit of a rape is to be destroyed just like the men of Hamor.
I swear, these damn fundies need to pick a new book for their old testament because they sure don't follow the one the Hebrews wrote.

Anyone watched the Third Party debates? It's very interesting to see a more engaging and vigorous debate here.
