  1. Say wut... tax cut does not cause deficit. Camonnnnnnnnn its basic math.
  2. Gaiz so in reviewing some old footage of the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, I think America should become an imperial power. It only took us 6 weeks to reach Baghdad and dispose Saddam. Similarly we could do the same with Iran. The difference this time though is we would get rid of all the terrorist's WMDs and take the oil. If we're ever going to even make the yang bucks a reality we need to attribute that freedom dividend to something, typically oil will suffice. It'll also strengthen our Petro dollar. The country would need to get 3.6 trillion dollars a year.In terms of barrels of oil, assuming crude stays at 50$ a barrel, we'd need 7.2 billion barrel a year. And according to wikipedia's the number one trusted source of data for academics and intellectual nationwide, Iran has 84 billion barrel left. That would sustain us at least another 10 year before we invade Canada. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_reserves_in_Iran#Additions_to_reserves Look tax cuts and a decrease of spending on social programs aren't going to sustain our open border immigration system. We need more UBI to be the world's number one immigration destination mmmkay.
  3. Ahh 2020, brace your selves, backlash for years of progressive liberal nonsense is coming. The UK election is a good prelude to what will happen in November as well as Canada. "The outcome was a stark repudiation of the main opposition Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn and his radical program of state intervention, nationalization of key industries and tax rises for the better off. " https://fortune.com/2019/12/13/boris-johnson-election-victory-upends-britain/
  4. So no need to worry about big bad russia taking over the artic or how it appears easier to jail/execute canadian citizen in other countries compared to the us? Because that's the extent of canadian hard power and soft power.
  5. Look look look, we'll send you your new driver license in the mail. America should have annex canada and mexico along time ago. We'll wall off the rest of central america mmkay.
  6. Nahh i can't find myself sitting through an entire women's game. Its like watching a low energy version of fifa. The women's national team lost 5-2 against a under 15 boy's league. There would be equal pay if there is equal fan base but there isn't, at least not in america. Soccer is as much an emotional sport as it is physical. The women league just seems to have less drama and energy. Who'd pay to watch that!?
  7. The US's women's soccer team devastated thailand in the world cup with a 13-0 . Unexpectedly it was canadians that called foul. "Kyle added: "I'm all about passion, but as a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that." https://m.cnn.com/en/article/h_bc9b472fb869d9fc40c23ba56d793ebb
  8. Lmao, so what you gona do about it? We took the f35 you paid us for back.
  9. All the noise you hear about trade war is only the tip of the iceberg. There's also an ideological war over authoritarian rule and western freedom (speech, religion, press etc...) The CCP is not really interested in reforming and loosening control causing chaos like tiananmen square. Ultra nationalistic soviet era propaganda are in full swing. Welcome to the new cold war of our time. Join us cannucks or you can kowtow to your new masters. They won't be so polite about dairy prices.
  10. Yup and further more some something nebulous about American imperialism whilst dodging the question.
  11. I asked a socialist this before. Name me a country where workers owning the means of production actually worked.
  12. As predicted from the 2016 election. Populist movements are happening across europe. The right wing populist like nigel farage are allude of what's to come. https://www.cnn.com/europe/live-news/european-elections-results-intl/h_0a24f8a10b73e4e72a0fb869c803e6e3
  13. So what you're saying is we need to adopt socialism? If so then that's exactly inline with the policies Bernie Sanders and most of the progressive democrats are running. So tell me Michael, where are all the classic liberal you speak of left in the democratic party? Because I can tell you having recently graduated, that the universities are overran with leftist ideology. How far do you think that will manifest it self in the 2020 election with people demanding free stuff from the entitlement generation.
  14. I don't think it matters anymore, it appears that leftism has taken hold, post enlightenment logic and reason gone with it. Bernie Sander is now considered center left. Classic liberalism is dying and its not due to anything from the right. You're seeing an increase in full blown annarcho communist from members of the left. I don't remember a time when supporting a system that lead to the deaths and suffering of millions were considered "main stream". The only thing worse than nazis were communist in my opinion. Yet you see members on the left proudly displaying shirts with che guevara and other marxist icon.
  15. I think there's a misunderstanding of what the tariff were suppose to achieve. Its about removing china from the global supply chain. Manufacturer who want to produce for the largest consumer market (US) now need to build factories outside of china or source parts anywhere other than china. It's all about breaking the Made in China 2025 initiative by Xijingping. This is why I think the tariffs are permanent. The biggest priority for the Trump administration is telecom and advance chip/manufacturing. Those industries are already out of china. Also lets not forget Xi is under pressure from members inside his own party to change course. You see this with their anti-corruption campaign aimed at consolidating power for Xi against rivals who advocate for reform. Most of whom fled to Hong Kong and you guessed it, Canada. But that's the thing, those internal faction need the tariff to pressure Xi.
  16. So no not really. A country's economic output is dependent on how efficient its work force is not how many people it has anymore. This is due to technology and hyper specialization. The same is also true of a university's research. What matters is how good your researcher is, not how many.
  17. Well sure they want to but they're doing it through IP theft and corporate espionage. That only gets you parity, it doesn't get you to surpass the us. Same thing happen to Japan, they only caught up but never exceeded.
  18. Nah, what I'm saying is that companies know they need to get out because the tariff is permanent.
  19. I don't think this is true actually, not because I trust what trump says but because I see companies doing exactly what I said, getting out of dodge in China. They're anticipating a long term permanent tariff. I suspect this is due to the fact that the core American demand is intellectual property protection. China as it currently stand is unable to provide such mechanism. Simply put what I'm saying is that they are unable to meet the US's trade demand. Businesses knows this and are exiting China because of it. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2018/07/30/trade-war-casualties-factories-shifting-out-of-china/#34e07055103e
  20. Not really, that was true of previous administrations until now. That's because China's market is an enticing prize for our corporations and wall-street and they kept previous thin skinned administration from making it public. Trump put an end to that. He's doing what he can to reverse that trend. FYI my money is that the tariff with china is permanent. It's a strategic way of decoupling china from the global supply chain. If I were you I'd invest in neighboring countries like India and Vietnam. So contrary to popular opinion the US is doing something about it. But make no mistake this isn't because of some deluded sense of altruism for freedom. Its in America's strategic interest that China doesn't run the world. It just happens that Canada and the rest of Europe prefer this as well.
