    The American Government, without a doubt. If for no other reason that the US Government can still at least marginally claim to be interested in a non-Socialist society.

    This poll is senseless. Do a better job in what ares?

    This poll will solve no questions, no issues and will only add to the incosistency and awkwardness of general politics.

    Absolute crap.

    First of all... you have claimed on many occasions that it is impossible to be fiscally conservative without being socially conservative because they go hand in hand.

    Canada according to you is a worthless country, an immoral country... which is ironic since you consider 90% of your own countrymen immoral and would have them executed according to your warped "morality".

    But Canada is actually on target for having a balanced budget or budget surplus within the next few years.

    In fact... becareful because I'm going to use facts here.

    During the 90's going into the 2000's the Canadian government produced 7 straight budget surpluses and do you know which party achieved that goal?

    The Liberal Party.



    Beat that with a stick.

    What the hell does that even mean? Going a better job? You typed it three times like that so I assume it isn't a typo.

    Exactly Correct, though as I'm going to point out below, you need to comprehend what fiscal conservatism IS.

    No. It's probably only about 75% that would be executed. The other 15% would likely be in prison.

    Critical Mistake.... Assuming that a balanced budget makes an economy Fiscally Conservative. It is PART of the equation, but not all of it. Unfortunately things like Welfare, Social Security, and National Healthcare cannot exist in a Fiscally Conservative system, even if they are "paid for" on a yearly basis in the budget. It's not just about HOW MUCH you spend, or even how that compares to what you bring in. It's also about WHAT you spend it on.

    To deny the obvious inappropriateness of taking money from those who have to give to those who not only don't have, but don't deserve to have is sheer lunacy. THAT is reality.
