Nostradamouse;3404639:rolleyes: To the lattest news, I sort of consider the army as being the arm of the government, and it seems this arm is growing stronger and bigger lately.

How much bigger?

You do realize of course that we have a very small military to begin with.

Well, let's just say that our right to privacy and other rights might take a blow sooner or later. (not that the libs haven't helped for that as well)

What evidence do you have to support this?

I do realize that it does not take much long to rearm a country once you get certain type of people in power. No need to have it bigger, bigger army = stronger government.

None and I admit it. Just a feeling I have. Basing myself on the slippery slope and I ain't the kind of guy that wanna have another madman in power doing something à la october crisis.

Hey WarHawk, do you think Harper actually cut taxes? he knocked a point off the GST, and then raised income taxes for the lowest bracket. If you're the average Canadian, you're paying more in taxes than before. It's only if your income is above $50,000 a year that you're getting tax breaks. It's not as bad as the States' cut for the rich, but its still raising taxes for the average Canadian. Also, day care is now more expensive thanks to the Tory plan.

Actually you are wrong, the income tax cut that the liberals tried was never actually legal, so technically the Conservatives never raised the income tax because it was never officially lowered in the first place.

Anyway, eventually they are going to eliminate capital gains and that's good enough for me! :D

Also, day care is now more expensive thanks to the Tory plan.

How so?

At least it's better than having all power to the bureaucrats.

I was a Bob Rae fa from the start; I never heard much of Dion. But I watched his speech and I was sold! I was very impressed. I do not believe his weakness in english is a factor; it'll only get better. I especally liked the idea of a $1000 tax credit to help familys buy more energy effecent appliances. After the 3rd ballot, and i think most people knew this too, I knew Dion would win, and i am glad he did. I did not like Ignatieff at all.
