    They have been involved in so many economic scandals that it is scandalous they are still in business. This is why I am PRO regulations. The day they deregulated the financial industry is the day they unleashed the wolves to guard the sheep.

    Prosecute them and apply the full weight of the law to close them!

    I've read much about the Illuminati and/or global elite. I don't know if they are real but this is the claim about them. The Illuminati fund both sides (it's called Hegelian Dialectics) such as both the Dems and the Reps. They gain control of each side through finding out information on people and/or helping people. If someone is caught with child porn in their house, someone from the Illuminati who is high up in the government will connect with that person and make a deal. If that person will work with the Illuminati, the Illuminati will give that person immunity and possibly free porn and/or chances to act out that porn for the rest of that person's life. That person though has to do the bidding of the Illuminati. What fools everyone is that the Illuminati will create divisions that give the impression that no one is in control. It is believed by some that both Russian communism and US capitalism are both the creation of the Illuminati. During the Cold War, the world thought that these two forces were ready to kill each other. In reality the same people at the top are pulling the strings of both organizations. Back to our court system, it is claimed by some that the top judges and top politicians are almost all bought out by the Illuminati (at least here in the west). There could easily be an appearance of a court case and justice being done but it could easily be a fraud and dissipate into a prolonged court case that results in no charges based on technicalities of some kind. I see mainly happenstance proof of such a group as the Illuminati existing but sometimes I wonder.

    I am a member of Canada's Liberal Party but it is for good reason that so many Canadians want political leaders to be less adversarial and more cooperative with each other!

    Some of the most courageous statements ever made on the history of Canadian monetary policy were made by Mr. Jack Layton:


    Oh Canada Movie 6 - Banking - 5

    I would greatly appreciate comments and opinions on this topic:

    Would you like to see Ms. Elizabeth May in Liberal Party leadership race?

    Yes, when it comes to monetary policy in Canada in 2012, truly that statement by Mr. Jack Layton is right up there with:


    Matthew 6:33
    Did you know that Mr. Layton regularly attended Wednesday morning Bible study/prayer meeting with Pastor Bill Prankard and his wife Gwen?

    The Social Credit of Alberta and BC had private banks and guess who stopped that activity. The left did from what I know.

    Hilary Clinton also attended prayer breakfasts on regular basis. What does that prove? Jack Layton, in the opinion of many, supported the most evil things in Canada and was not to be trusted at all with anything. This not about Jack Layton as a person but about what he supported.

    The Wildrose party wants a much smaller government.

    Christians should be voting for such a party for several reasons:

    !) Christian families should have more love and be taking care of each other and should not need the government.

    2) Christians have a Heavenly Father who takes care of them and they themselves should not need the government.

    3) Small government means fewer taxes and then those who work harder can receive more of their reward.

    Why are people scared of such things?

    The first thing Neo Liberalism wants is a small and weak government so that it can be forced to serve the interests of the financial and big money institutions.

    The next step is to destroy family values, national identity, religion, and anything that nations have that maintains a cohesive society.

    This is happening now worldwide and I fail to understand how one can claim to be a Christian while demanding a small government.

    Friedman and his shock doctrine would be very proud of you!

    1) Not all are Christian. Atheist, Buddhist, Muslim, should all have the same and many do have love and already take care of each other. However some do need to rely on the government, those who are sick, elderly, mentally ill...as not everyone has family and some who do have families may be living in poverty...working in low income jobs.

    2) Again not everyone is Christian.

    3) Our taxes are the lowest in Canada!! The NDP is a small government...they are for equality...they represent the working person...:)

    From what I have read on the subject I didn't get the impression that it was the political left that stopped the Alberta provincial currency experiment????

    The NDP is worse than the Democrats in the US. They support killing babies and babykilling is legal for all 9 months in Canada. Nothing else they say or do can ever make them ok.

    And the tar sands? So, you'd rather have oil from the Middle East? Seriously? Some people are so messed up.

    I understand what you are saying but Albertans have always regarded Eastern Canada as more left than Albertans. Albertans are not innocent though. When Eastern Canada insists on public medicare, Albertans eventually capitulate. Albertans have been the most traditional of all the provinces and are the last to change in almost everything. I am so thankful though that I had Alberta as my cultural example. It changed my life. It gave me a foundation that will probably never crumble. I feel sad for those who believe that the government is trustworthy and that the government will take care of them. The government is the worst place for anyone to put their trust.

    Amercians should look at Canadians and understand what socialism does to a people. We are an unmotivated, passive people here in Canada. We have lost our will to live. This is what will happen to the US if they don't watch it. Sooner or later, we will fall into tyranny. No one in Canada thinks about our debt seriously. It's ridiculous and we also think we are so beloved in all the world. I wish people could hear what immigrants have to say under their breath about Canada. I am not xenophobic. I am a realist because I have heard people speak from their hearts about the disgust they have for Canada and it's alarming and a great cause for concern. But we stick our heads in the sand and pretend we are loved!

    Yeah, it makes them freaking awesome. The US could learn a lot from us in terms of health care, marriage, education, secular government, multiculturalism, and community.

    I strongly suspect though that many NDP members and candidates might be interested in taking a look at an anti-foeticide bill such as a "Ban on Intra-cardiac potassium chloride injections on singletons."

    https://apps.facebook.com/forumforpages/180898612019485/f1d6df2e-9dcf-4f89-9abf-c9067e20e956/0

    Ban Intra-cardiac potassium chloride injections on singletons.


    I also think that many NDP members may wish to do lots more research on the alternative theory of combating climate change through investing heavily in turning deserts green. I will try to dig up the thread that I started on that topic a while ago! Do a search for Carl Cantrell and you will find it.

    I found the link into the discussion thread on the alternative theory on combating climate change through investing heavily in turning deserts green. This method sure should be attractive to anybody with relatives or friends along the Bay of Fundy.

    The Bay of Fundy funnels tidal waters in such a way that a rather modest rise in ocean levels could be translated into much higher high tides all along the coast there. The town of Truro, N.S. seems especially vulnerable to rising ocean levels?!

    Turn deserts green to stabilize climate, Isaiah was right!

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm:

    Health care - Canadians have now become a nation of wimps and addicts. We don't know how to take care of ourselves and the abuse of the system is so bad that it's a disgrace.

    Marriage - our marriages are failing because we don't need marriage and family any more for our lives.

    Education - Alberta, the most non-socialist province of all has by far the highest educational standards.

    Secular government - you got that right.

    Multiculturalism - I objected to the welfare system at work and was called a "fascist" by all the others (I'm the only one there born in Canada). Immigrants in the last 50 years have not come to Canada to serve our country. They have come to be served and they take full advantage of the situation. I've had immigrants boast how they love free medicare and welfare and the pension plans. I tell these people that I grew up in Alberta and we were ashamed to ever say we depended on the gov't for anything. Immigrants don't know how to respond to this. The ones that are independent and take care of themselves stay in their own countries because they are disgusted with Canada (and many immigrants return to their countries when they find out what being a "Canadian" really means).

    Community - a African woman told me that in her country of origin, they leave their children for free with the neighbour and trust their neighbour. Here in Canada she has to leave her children with a neighbour for money and cannot trust her neighbour. Other immigrants have said similar things about the "wonderful" state of Canada.
