    Again, I ask. And???

    Apparently, he wanted to hear opinions. If people are offended by it, then I'd say it's their problem. I have absolutely no problem with Canada barring anyone they want, and would I feel the same about the US. There is no social contract which says Canada has to take anyone in, besides the ones they want.

    Oh for God's sake. I think we're all big boys and girls here, and we can handle insults without getting all butt hurt about it.

    so its ok to belittle a country because you say so...good stuff! Thought this was debate politics.com not playground antics.com


    p.s If you want to talk about "butthurt" take a trip to the European section where any poster who says anything "anti-American" is attacked by about 4 or 5 posters. The double standards in this place is amazing

    Couldn't care less. It's your country's laws, and if he doesn't like it, he can play a game of hide and go **** himself.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No, Canada is NOT exactly the same as America. It's social policies are superior, it is not a constitutional republic, it's a sovereign country with it's own laws, it's own government and it's own set of cultures. Canada does not extradite if the death penalty is possible. Canada's gun laws are much more strident than America's. It does not, nor does UK or some European countries, have the same stringent speech freedoms that are constitutionally protected in the US, which quite frankly is the topic of this thread, not how Americans are going to be "bent out of shape" because Canada's laws are different than ours when it comes to free speech.

    So no, Canada and America are not the same, and it's foolish to believe otherwise.

    Please remove the blinkers please.
    Please remove your own blinkers, the ones which cause you to lash out any time an American compares its own constitutional system to countries which are governed differently. Not better. Not worse. Differently.

    we are not discussing a constitutional system we are discussing national security. The man is a security threat in many countries like Canada and the UK included, that is why he is not allowed to travel to these countries.


    p.s I only lash out when posters belittle a country I consider a friend.
