Then God help us. At least I won't be alive to watch our decendents barbequed.  As I've said before, the opposition to nuclear power, both uranium and thorium, is an indictment on our educational system. The people most devoted to fighting global warming are right in their goal but are lacking the knowledge on how to achieve is. The physists are a small part of the movement. China and India are working hard to start production on thorium LIFTR reactors. Lets hope it is India that gets there first.

There are huge projects in the West, notably in France, to develop nuclear fusion. They expect to have a workable plant in a couple of decades or so. At that point hopefully the West, at least, will be switching over to Fusion power. And if electrical batteries have been improved we can than power all our cars, trucks and buses from the power grid.

But I expect we'll need Trump's wall, which is one of the reasons I don't object to him building one if he can.

In your original post you seemed concerned with gov't overreach, surveilance, authoritarianism etc.  Now you're suggesting that it's about safety.  If you want to give up your freedom for safety, then yes, Canada is the place for you.

I made the reasonable connection that concepts are related; as government overreach, surveillance and authoritarianism goes up, personal safety often declines -- at least, if you're one to disagree with the government.  

I think you really need only turn on the news to get a glimpse of what I'm talking about...

Fair enough, all I'm saying is that authoritarianism is worse in Canada.  We don't riot or protest because we've lost our will to do so.  We have universal healthcare, and quite honestly, that's all we care about.  We can have our freedoms taken and be taxed until July, but Canadians are all OK with this because we have healthcare.  We're actually quite arrogant about it too.

Conservatism, patriotism and nationalism are pretty much dead in Canada. All we pretty much have now are leftist lieberals, socialists, communists and Greenies running this country and they are all doing a terrible job at it. The only way I can see Canada ever getting back to normal before the sixties came along is to downsize government big time, eliminate most taxes and duties and permits and licences, and no one shall be denied their rights to their freedom of speech. If someone's speech offends someone else well they can just learn to live with it. The only time Canadians will go out and demonstrate is when the leftist liberal Canadian media can get them all worked up over things like some black guy being killed by a white cop. If the tables were turned, there would be no demonstrations in Canada. 

Today we have become a nation of whiny crybabies and when someone hurts someone else's feelings they run to big daddy government, and want daddy government to arrest and charge that person for hurting their sensitive feelings. Men are becoming more feminist by the day. They wear earrings in their ears or noses, carry a man purse around with them, and some girlie men even put nail polish on their finger nails. I am always curious as to what some girlie man has in his man purse anyway? Does he carry an extra pair of underwear, and have some nail polish in the purse? 

Indeed, the only thing we can say that is good about Canada is it's healthcare system. But our healthcare is going broke thanks in part to all of those legal and illegal so called refugees that are being brought into or are sneaking into Canada illegally. They even get free eye care and dental care. I have to pay for both of those mentioned, and pay for those refugees also.

Our borders are free for anyone to want to walk right on in. Americans have their problems with illegal aliens walking into their country illegally just as we have at our border with America where thousands of unwanted and unneeded criminal illegals just keep walking right on into Canada. 

Our dear comrade leaders have  blown hundreds of billions of our tax dollars on useless gun control programs. Those laws are not there to help protect anyone. They are there to please a whiny crybaby minority, as always, and a good excuse for the government to create another bloated bureaucracy and get more revenue from having unneeded and unwanted gun laws.  

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that most Canadians have become dumber than a door knob especially when it comes to politics. Whatever the government or the lying media tells them to do, they will do it without question. Canada is not my country anymore. It now belongs to socialists and whiny crybabies. Believe it or not. ;)

What is your objective evidence for this?

Just by what Trump has said and done. Go to the Trump website and it will all be explained to you. That is if you care to see what Trump has done. Your call. ;)
