well gabby, other canadians describe you as ''left of center'' for Canada. So it's not only me, but other canadians who disagree with you. A few observations- claim that "unregulated capitalism" is chaos. Yet there was never "unregulated capitalism" in recent history in the USA... Securities, medicine, everything is regulated, and usually has a specific body whose sole task is to regulate it (SEC, FDA, FCC etc) I feel thats a bit of a strawman because no one ever advocated unregulated capitalism. Yet you are arguing against it as if there were some large segment of Americans who are for having no business laws whatsoever, when that isn't the case. Also, you do seem to be in favor of centeralized ownership of key industries- medicine, banking, energy etc. This is very much a socialist position... Yet you don't admit to being even partially socialist. Why not? Do you just not like the word, while you DO like the ideas? I'm genuinely curious.
