The worst PM in Canadian History especially from an economic standpoint.

THIS I KNOW!
well, I dont know about the "especially" but he destroyed the economy, just awful. Set up Mulroney well though, those were some good years!

When can people change their minds and or change their views? Just curious. I know of one person in my life who was a raging bigot I'm his late teens. Now in his 40's he knows that he was misguided back then and no longer believes most all of what he did some 27 yrs ago. Is he forever a racist?

I used to be a republican. I'm surely over that now. But since I shared the views dies that mean I can't change them?

Just something I never understood about politics. Your career or your image can be tainted due to your views as most usually a young person. I don't know the situation with Dans brothers friend but it brings up the question I've skeays been confused about.

Politics is a farce designed to give people the illusion of influence.

excellent point Steve.

I also find it interesting that sometimes its catchwords that seem to do the most damage to an image, ie "nazi" "anti-semite" "racist"
I guess its too hard to say selfish prick who never worked hard for people and just took money under the table from those who wanted influence

Trump is nowhere close to being better than JB. Trump is so off his rocker that he would destroy this country in the first 6 months. I'm no Bush fan and won't be voting but out of the three Bush men, he's the smart one.

Can anybody explain to me why you would run for the presidential nomination if you knew you probably had no chance? I mean, doesn't it cost loads and loads of money to run one of these? I guess just to get noticed in the public eye?

Trump is a moron and wouldn't get away with a lot of what he wanted to do. Bush is just another member of a criminal family who knows how to get what they want.

Get a job as a host on Fox News, get a book deal, get a high profile as a lobbyist, big fees on the speaker's circuit.

It costs a lot of other people's money to run, nothing says the candidate has to put any of their own money into it.

Well I don't see the benefits of having a moron in who can't get anything done (good or bad) is good for my well being in this country. So yeah no thanks on Trump.

I admittedly haven't paid much attention to JB in a few years but back in the day he wasn't really part of the clan. Again because he did his own thing and vastly more intelligent than his dad and idiot brother. I'll never vote for him but still 10000000000000 x better than Trump ainec
