Hadrian? Hahaha. That's pretty bad.Ev wrote:Flo The Action wrote:I think him having such a strong majority in the first term yes had to do with that. For sure, people vote for reasons that should have very little to do with what is at stake all the time. But I think what he did and tried to do(especially since senate blocked him constantly) was far better for the American population than anything we seen since th carter era.Ev wrote:Flo The Action wrote:Ev wrote:Flo The Action wrote:Ev wrote:Harper has been voted in how many times now? Clearly people respect him and wanted him as pm on multiple occasions.
I have nothing to add as I hate politics and think they bring out the worst in people, especially the people who think they know something about it when they don't.
George W was voted in twice also and people are encouraging Donald trump on. Doesn't mean that the right choice. People are constantly being manipulated by media and political agendas.
Yeah they were manipulated big time by voting Obama in. He was nothing but a popularity vote and Bush was honestly the better president for the country.
Yep there's no discussing politics when people lie on different side. As far as I'm concerned Obama was probably the best president since carter. Bush, the better president. You mean because he led the country into a depression or because he started a false war in Iraq. Please.
Regardless of my opinion of bush, you can't deny Obama was a media driven polouarity vote. He had the youth vote big time, who voted for him knowing nothing about politics, and he had the black vote. Simple as that.
Also big part of the reason that he had the youth vote is because more youth tend to believe in democratic values over those of the republicans. Same goes in Canada.
I was a teen at the time Obama first got voted in. Everybody liked him because he was this cool black guy and McCain was an old veteran. It had nothing to do with parties. Obama became a meme and he marketed his campaign well.
It's the same thing with Trudeau. Ask teens what his policies are, they won't know. They'll know he's the hip cool young guy with a famous last name. He's so phoney in his ads, it's baloney. And he named his kid Hadrian. Think about that.
I'm not voting liberal. To be honest I don't think there's any political party that I believe in all their policies but I can probably feel secure that either the liberals or NDP won't infuriate me on the international level.
Trudeau might be a little douchy but the liberal party is long established and have enough people to surround him if he is the next pm.
Obama did market his campaign well but also McCain was a terrible choice and the republican were responsible for the large part of the mess that was falling unro America so was there any other choice?
