I suppose that this is just a reflection of the polarization and dumbing-down of politics. Left or right. Strong or weak. With us or against us. War-mongering Jesus lover or tree-hugging hippie socialist.

There's just no room for the moderates these days. My place on the spectrum varies from issue to issue, so labelling something as complex as one's political views as black or white has always seemed quite humourous to me.

But I digress. Back to being a fiscal conservative who ironically earns a living in large part form the public health system so I can invest my earnings in corporations and spend some of it on arty things like music and theatre.

To be fair, the conservatives Mill was talking about were vastly different than today's classical liberals...I mean conservatives.

New studies suggest Liberals are most likely to vote to delay the Rebuild of the Calgary Flames.

They prefer a re-tool around overpaid aging assests

Boooooo

Obviously only strong men have the backbone to tough out a rebuild.
