wait now Retro, let the waldo give you some help - you're welcome!

the U.S. based non-governmental organization, Freedom House, publishes a yearly report, 'Freedom in the World'... measuring the degree of civil liberties and political rights in every nation. Canada ranks 4th in the most recent 2021 report... while the U.S. ranks @52. Again, you're welcome!

After reading this thread, I have decided I will use The Economist's index moving forward:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_Index#By_country

Still - it puts Canada 12th and the US at 26th - called "flawed democracy"

Retro, given your perpetual AmericanWannaBe posturing it's got to be perplexing for you to see just how flawed the U.S. shows in these analysis reviews, hey! And then member MH piles on - that's gotsToBurn!

waldo pickinNits: it's actually put out by the EIU (Economist Intelligence Unit), the research division of the Economist Group... which just happens to also publish the Economist 'newspaper'; in any case, in 2021 Canada dropped 7 positions (from its prior 2020 ranking) principally because of imposed pandemic related restrictions & lockdowns - the waldo calls bullshyte on this EIU move! In any case, here's thinking of you Retro!

Not really.  These lists are made by adding things to them that aren’t actual freedoms, while discounting real ones.  It’s an Orwellian exercise in which this list essentially tries to insist that 2 + 2 = 5.
Take Canada.  Having much less freedom of speech does not give us more freedom than the United States.  Not having the right to protect yourself via something like the 2bd amendment does not give us more freedom than the United States.  Having some of the most lengthy covid restrictions in the world does not give us more freedom than the United States.  Having the government freeze your bank accounts without due process does not give us more freedom than the United States.  Paying much higher prices for goods and services does not give us more freedom than the United States.  What’s funny is that some of you idiots spent the last couple of years denouncing the United States for their freedum, and now you’re pretending that it didn’t happen and that aCTuaLlY it’s Canada that is more free!  Orwellian! 😂🤣

A secret board of Trudeau government advisors has terminated Rebel News’ licence renewal.  Nothing says freedom more than the government in power deciding who can be a journalist and who can’t! 😂🤣
Freedom!!!!

lol I posted about this in the media thread, but I'm entirely unsurprised you're just puking out the Rebel's version of events verbatim and of course it's totally wrong.

even this one from right-wing/Conservative CATO Institute & Fraser Institute? Why would they do what you're claiming - why?



or these 2 from, respectively, Freedom House & the Economist Group - why would they do what you're claiming - why?

skippy has had a many month's long run of repeatedly casting aspersion towards the 'Bank of Canada'... while at the same time playing up crypto-currency as the alternative. This, THIS from someone presuming to lead a G7 country; one as leading, "the path to personal liberty over the tyranny of government power over Canada's national financial system". It couldn't be more laughable if it wasn't actually a front by pigeonPierre to simply bring in another faction of "the base".


even in the face of significant criticism coming his way, it seems Poilievre is doubling down on his crypto advocacy... even in recent days with a staged photo-op of him paying for lunch with bitcoin.

 

and Charest went after Poilievre’s position on cryptocurrency; one which includes suggesting Canada could become the “crypto capital of the world,” and condemned him for “attacking the Bank of Canada.”:

Quote from: CPC leadership candidate, Jean Charest
You {Pierre Poilievre} want to be prime minister of Canada, and you're telling Canadians that cryptocurrency is going to wipe out inflation? Does anyone credible believe that? Is there any economic person in the country who actually said that he was right? I mean, this is it's not just wrong. It's bizarre.

I was much relieved to visit some Conservative friends of ours on the weekend, to find that:

- Although they are not pleased with Trudeau's personality
- The handling of the pandemic by our governments was satisfactory in their opinion
- The Convoy was the stupidest thing ever
- They are becoming disgusting with the yahoos of their party.

These are also not centrists, but rural, gun-owning, freedom loving etc. etc.

I firmly believe we just need reasonable people to get a bit louder as every single loud wingnut that I have to moderate (Facebook) is ignorant and stupid.  For that matter, they would probably vote for Trudeau too if he just fit the jingoist cut-out.

It will indeed be amusing to see well-suited Peter Pepperlips try to play the part of cowboy with his economics degree and soft hands...
