Even more so today.

Newspapers today are nothing more than propaganda sound bites.

Sounds like our ex-Prime Minister; a devout Fundamentalist Christian and staunch Conservative. He lost the last election because it became widely known that people of his ilk are also fundamentally racist: and we won't stand for that in Canada.

L. Hanson, are you saying that devout Fundamentalist Christians and staunch Conservatives are fundamentally racist? It has been my experience that devout Fundamentalist Christians and staunch Conservatives are of an individualist ilk. By way of example: Matthew 18:12 - leaving the 99 for the 1, or Acts 10:34 where God is no respecter of persons; AND, staunch conservatives tend towards individual sovereign rights. It takes a collectivist ilk to be racist. One has to separate individuals into groups (religion, body politic, race, etc.) to exercise a bigotry such as racism. Socialism and other collectivist persuasions are fertile ground for racism to flourish. Are you saying that Canadians are schizophrenic, incapable of making obvious correlations or just liberals that follow the admonition of Joseph Goebbels ("If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it") ? Obviously by your 1 star, the government newspaper is your bible.

The man who listens to or watches TV several hours per day is programmed, not educated, and will very likely defend opinion as fact and denounce anyone who has not received similar programming as a fool. Turn off the propaganda, and the truth can stand on its own. Free 'education' ain't free -- 'buying into' the lies has a high 'price tag' -- the cost is your mind (with the body and soul to follow).
