buddy wants to have an extreme opinion, its not grounded in reality but it feels good. 

I've made this point many times before: The whole, "All politicians are bad/liars", etc. is just lazy.

 

Almost nothing is an absolute.

Tommy Douglas says WTF are you talking about?

Our medical system is propped up by tax dollars, some of the highest in the world. Something like 70% of our taxes go to pay for it. We lose our doctors to other countries and wait lines are the longest in the world. 

 

Also, if you think Douglas was a good politician, you must be a racist.

I don't think that's a result of poor intentions by a politician though.

Oh, another goal post mover.

you said "None of these were created by the politicians."

I said Tommy Douglass, now you want to add stuff that had nothing to do with your statement.?

Just admit you were wrong, take the loss with a bit of grace.

Tommy had some, lets say, funky, ideas on eugenics. But he did help lead Canada into socialized medicine, at least the SK part. 

 

These kinds of 'us vs them' fake arguments are what places like China love about us, as long as we tear at each other we won't be working on getting off Chinese manufacturing dependence.

I would rather have it being subsided by tax dollars than having to pay 10k for a covid bill.. 

Look at what is happening in the USA. 

 

We live in a society not a dictatorship. 

 

Tax dollars are supposed to benefit all.

Maybe you could provide some sources to back up these claims. I did some quick research and was unable to.

 

Case in point:

Quote

In order to more precisely estimate the cost of public health care insurance for the average Canadian family in 2018, we must determine how much tax an average family pays to all lev-els of government and the percentage of the family’s total tax bill5 that pays for public health care insurance. In 2017/18, an estimated 23.5% of tax revenues (income) was spent on health care (Statistics Canada, 2018a, 2018d, and 2018e; CIHI, 2017; authors’ calculations).6

So basically "if you disagree with me you're a racist"? Is that what you're saying?

 

If you're trying to win an argument, your sentence there is the LAST thing you want to say. lol

That's like saying Steve Jobs created the iPhone. GTFO, these were all done on the backs of less fortunate people.

The point is, he wasn't a good politician. He loved his 'clean people'. Another example of a gross politician .

I don't care if he was a good or bad politician. Throw in the racist card like that and you're worse than the politicians in my mind.

He wanted to cleanse the gene pool. That is not a good politician, which is what I have been stating here. They are gross.

He didn't create it. He had a hand in it and his goal was to cleanse the gene pool of people less fortunate. A real role model.

Doesn't make it right to slap a label such as racism on someone unrelated. To like or hate a politician doesn't mean you have to agree or disagree with everything they believe in. You can like single ideas from a politician while hating other ideas from that same politician.

 

I recommend it not being worth defending yourself on this. You've already lost my respect and I'm not going to respond anymore.

On the plus side, this was a good time to clean up my "ignored poster" list.

 

figured I was safe taking Ryan Strome off the list, in a 1 for 1 trade.

Love on with politicians. The majority do not. 

the majority of what? 

 

from your comments I can only assume you don't know how our system works or how we've developed the systems we have.
