@cajun Well, I can't recall off the top of my head an instance right now, but often, regardless of how much knowledge a foreigner has about the system, your opinion is declared null and void due to the fact that you live elsewhere. I figured I`d stick to what happened to us Canadians, and let folks take what they would from it.

Thanks though, perhaps I may dip my toe into the waters yet and give my opinion on the political race.

@Kalimata

You'd be surprised (I was) I think many foreigners understand a LOT more about our laws than many Americans do. Considering the influence we wield in the world there is certainly a huge incentive to do so. But as long as I`ve been on this forum I`ve never seen a foreigner get "shouted down" as you put it.

Yeah, it's a big media conspiracy. The media all got together and they are the ones in control. LOL

I'm Canadian, and because of this, I won`t comment on the U.S. political race. Not because I have no opinion, but foreigners commenting on U.S. politics usually get shouted down. I`ll speak to experience and tell about our(past)minority government and why not having House and Senate majority for the president can be a good thing.

Bi-partisan politics go out the window. Compromise is made. Without the backing of all parties in the House, Conservative policies had to be tempered with Liberal and NDP sensibilities, (and BLOC if you care). A sort of built in check and balance. Remember, Canadians didn`t vote primarily for the leader, so to push His agenda through via majority seats didn`t reflect the bulk of Canadian sensibilities.

Perhaps Dr. Paul might make a good leader, without full power in the House and Senate. With 4 years perhaps people can learn to compromise and work together like a Republic is supposed to do, to reflect the will of it`s people.
