Well at least I studied Politics, Economics and the History of Modern Communism in college, among other subjects.

         And I managed to get in the top third of my class.

          I also studied, and continue to study other subjects such as Ancient History, particularly Ancient Greece and Rome, astronomy and Meteoritics, Geology and Paleoclimatology. 

    I was actually a leftist/Socialist quasi Marxist-Leninist student organizer until I woke up. 

    I’ve read Marx and Engels, works of Lenin, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Frederic Bastiat, Jefferson, Boaz, Trotter ...ad infinitum. 

    Today I hate all forms of authoritarianism and totalitarianism. 

    I have no time for things like Fascism and Communism and other forms of dictatorship. 

     There is more than one form of “Political Spectrum”. I’m not sure which one you are referring to. 

    My first and greatest love is learning about life and the universe.

     I will always be a student, and my library of books drives my wife crazy. She’s not much of a reader I’m afraid. 

   Yes, I do know a little bit about Politics and Economics. 

    Now run along, and please do have a nice day. 😃

Solid burn dude, respect!

And all your vast knowledge of politics (as well as an amazing range of other subjects!) leads you to conclude that anyone left of the middle ground of the US Dems probably "prefer the Pol Pot...Khmer Rouge or North Korea type Communism"?

Tell me, was your degree earned at Trump U?

     So all you have is typical insulting ad hominem. About what I expect from the far right and far left. 

  Pathetic.

     Where did I claim to have a vast knowledge of politics and other subjects ? ?

   I said I studied them, and did very well, and continue to study. I didn’t say my knowledge is vast. 

   I know something about these subjects.

   There is also a great deal that I don’t know. 

    If you have a much greater knowledge of these subjects than I do....wonderful ...then I bow down to your great accomplishment and great knowledge. Wonderful for you. 

   But if you continue to get educated or educate yourself through life....you might learn even more someday. Because your postings almost appear to show you to need more study.

     I believe I’m in the world to learn. That’s why I will always be a student and continue to learn until the day I die. 

    It’s also the reason I became a practitioner of the Dhamma Vinaya.

    I don’t believe education ends when you graduate from college.

This isn't very diplomatic but here goes.

I think Canadians know that the vast majority of Americans don't think about Canada at all much less care who is PM or even know who is PM.

Canadians on the other hand are generally very up on U.S. politics.

Have a fair election and get on with it.

Canadians are not much interested in their own politics either. The entire federal election is announced, campaigned, and wrapped up in something like 45 days. And campaign contributions are limited to very small amounts, in comparison to the US. Which keeps everything low key, with small advertising budgets and Not much for corporate influence.

America on the other hand has an entire industry revolving around elections. It is shocking the energy that goes into it. So Canadians probably get 95% more American politics in their day than Canadian. Especially when you factor in the obsession with American politics from the entertainment industry and Hollywood.

I don't know if there has ever been a Canadian movie about a Canadian Prime Minister. Nor have I seen a TV show (entertainment not documentary) based on our politics. I stand to be corrected however.

i wonder what the carbon footprint is for the american elections ? 

 

ohhhh the irony. 

 

as for our elections about to happen. the same will continue. rich will get richer and the poor will squabble over politics. 

 

how about a little humor to lighten the thread.....anyone remember this quote. classic. 

 

“I’ve never said that in my life to her, I would never do that. I’m happily married, I’ve got more than enough to eat at home.”

Thanks for that quote.

 

Just guessing but was that Obama talking about Yingluck following their lovely smiley photo shoot? 😉

I wonder if Obama asked little Justin if he was still playing "black faces".

 

Wasn't this the Yankee president who interfered in the Brexit campaign by telling the poor Brits that if they voted to Leave they would move to the back of the queue when it came to getting an economic agreement with Uncle Sam....?

Yes ... back o' the line queue ... but Yankee from Hawaii? Nopes.
