    Exactly! The GOP is over run with your type....Authoritarians...no respect for the Law and ultimately the Constitution....

    The ends justify the means.

    Ummmm, I'm not in the GOP, and I am far from a conservative and not a Liberal.

    I am a pragmatist.

    A Canadian one to boot.

    And last I checked, the rule of law guys are the authoritarians.

    If you don't believe in the rule of law...then you are also not a real American, imo.
    We Americans love our Constitution & live by the law.

    Thats absolutely correct, because I am a Canadian.

    I am a pragmatist through and through.

    I like to stay in the real world, and not play out my days in ideological fantasies.

    Yes, but its not like we zealously believe in following it.

    The spirit of the law, not the rule of it.

    I mean if you murder someone, you're going to get prosecuted, but when it comes to national issues, well, there is a provision in our constitution called the non(or not)-withstanding clause.

    It basically means the government can anything it wants, if pragmatism calls for it.

    Thats the Canadian way.

    I see....Then who exactly defines the "Spirit" of the law???

    You?

    Each Canadian individual?

    Well, I mean, you're gonna get a ticket.

    If you got the gift of gab, then yea, I guess its possible to get out of it.

    But I thought we were talking about national issues here, not traffic tickets.
