    By way of introduction, I am an American Conservative living in Canada. My family came here when I was quite young but we have kept our citizenship. I am married to a Canadian and have a teen aged daughter.

    As I said I am quite conservative. Having witnessed the ravages of liberal policies on Canada, seeing the mounting debt, dissolution of cultural mores, atrophy of public morals and the general decline in the standard of living of this once great nation, it is clear the political motivation of envy - liberalism - is a failure that must be stopped. While the collective hearts of liberals are generally in the right place, the unintended consequences of liberal policy hurt the very people they seek to help.

    I am a civil poster on message boards. I will articulate my positions peacefully and with respect. But I am not a novice on these forums and I know civility is rarely returned in such venues. I ignore those who believe insults and sarcasm are acceptable replacements for logic and civility.

    See you on the boards.

    Welcome, Jaguar. The leanings here are to all sides. The smarter ones are libertarian, next come conservatives and last come liberals and Marxist.

    We have a lot of Obamaroids that think they are smart. Unfortunately, you can't fix stupid.

    The two words, "leftist" and "American" can not be appropriately used within the same sentence. It would be like claiming one has warm ice. It's an impossibility. For those who want a nation based on failed leftist policies I would recommend Greece. See how that works for you.
