    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

It's a trade-off. Besides, our health care system has been in effect for more than half a century, much longer than most Canadians have been alive, and they have no interest in changing such an ingrained program. Our social safety net is less "generous" than that in America, our unemployment insurance far shorter with stricter requirements, access to our social security is being delayed, by phasing in, to age 67. All things that Americans seem to be unwilling to accept.

    I didn't say that Canadians don't pay taxes or don't want to pay taxes - we don't, however, expect government to run our lives and solve all our problems.

    Re: Do You Have a Partisan Bias?

    It depends on what you mean. Do you have a preference for a particular political stance? Of course, everyone does. That makes for a dumb poll though because nobody could ever answer no. Do you adopt a particular stance and follow it to the letter, defending your party of choice no matter what they do? That's a partisan bias and while there are a couple of people around here that certainly do that, the majority don't.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Not necessarily. They just may define 'partisan bias' differently. I think to me, bias would include an recognition that it may keep you from looking at something entirely objectively or fairly. Others may see bias a different way.

    Or they just don't give a **** about either party or their agendas...

    Like me.

    Everybody is biased about one thing or another but not all of us are tethered to partisan agendas.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Presuming you mean conservative/republican or liberal/democratic bias, no. I hate them both equally.

    My views are issue-oriented. On some issues I agree primarily with conservatives; on other issues I agree primarily with liberals.

    I have a political bias, which results in me supporting one of the two major parties more often than the other. However, since neither party seems to be loyal to me, I return the favor.

    I am in favor of the causes I support, the people I support, and the party I support. That gives me a partisan bias. However, I sometimes disagree with what the party I support does, and the people I support.
    Though I have no allegiance to either party, my cause is liberty and my bias is quite unfair... to the poor, the dumb, the weak or otherwise dependent, failures, bad banks and customers undeserving of loans.

    So I guess I am a partisan, I err on the side of liberty and never take safety into consideration when it comes to my individual rights.

    Nope. IMO all parties should be abolished so that people have to actually vote on the person and not the party.
