As a non American, I am not sure why anyone would not vote for Trump in this election.
I get he is an egomaniac. Like one of the worst ones who has ever walked on the face of the earth. But has he not done a decent job? Certainly better than the last few presidents?
And Biden is senile, is a gross liar, is a puppet for silicon valley and is in collusion with the People Republic of China.
I just dont get it.
Out of curiosity, where are you from? Just wondering if your view is typical of certain non-Americans.
I think there are certainly those Americans who share your opinion, but plenty more have quite the opposite view. It's quite divided.
We have a socialist liberal leader up here.
He has caused the worst debt our country has seen since world war II.
He has let so many refugees in that it is starting to cripple affordable housing and it is putting Canadian families out on the street as their rent is doubling
He has been punishing working Canadians during the pandemic and is continuing to print money to pay people to stay home.
He has promised alot of things to our Indigenous peoples and has not followed through on anything. (this is all a hige mess in Canada)
He wants to block a 22 billion dollar train line from Alaska to Alberta
He has created a carbon tax that does nothing to improve the environment
He has appointed people that fit the color and sex scale as opposed to skill
We have the highest unemployement rate in the G&
He promised that national debt would not increase by more than 10 billion, he increased it by 380 Billion. We now have by far the highest national debt in the G20
He threatened to call an election if Parliment voted to create a scandal committee to investigate his NUMEROUS scandals.
He has given billions to a couple of our TV/Media companies because they were losing money. Now those companies are purely PRO Trudea. Trump is mentioned in our news cycles on these chanels FAR more often. They want Canadians to keep attention elsewhere.
There are so many of us that see what happens with a Guy like Biden running the show. When the socialist left gets in charge things go sour quickly.
As a country we up here will end up with a 20% interest rate, just like it was when Justin Trudeaus father was Prime Minister.
And most of us want someone more like Trump in office up here.
There are those that march and protest to save the environment while doing nothing to make any change
there are those that feel like their should be a mobile unit of social workers that show up every time police officers show up to any call.
There are those that feel like the Indigenous have had their land stolen and that we all as Canadians need to acknowledge this on a daily basis. (this sounds crazy but its true. 90% of government workers now have to sign their emails that they acknowledge that the land once belonged to a certain tribe and that land was seized from them illegally - even though it was a war and they lost the land)
Etc, Etc, and those people want someone like Biden to win. But, most of us, think those people are lunatics.
Facebook political groups, non government funded media, everyday middle class folks all oppose socialism. We all want equality, but we also want to remain exclusively Canadian. And our Social Liberal government is slowly chipping away at that.
For example, our government made a LAW that all public service people MUST wear a mask to prevent Covid. The RCMP added that police must wear a properly fitting N95 mask. As we all know some religions have mean wear beards. Beards prevent proper fitting of N95 facemasks. So the RCMP took those with heavy beards and put them on jobs in which they would not have contact with the public. This created ire and went to court as a discriminatory case, and now those police officers with beards are not allowed to be kept away from public even though they are not wearing masks properly, breaking a law that the government created.
So as opposed to being reasonable and doing what is recommended to prevent the spread of the virus, we are putting people at a potentially higher level of risk because we have to accommodate.
Certain things have made America and Canada great. HAs made our economy strong, and has made us countries that are tops for immigration. People want to flock to our countries, yet now we are not being run good enough and it all needs to change? if it is so bad to the people immigrating here then why are they coming?
too long didnt read:
I just realized I am rambling and babbling.
A large population of Canadians hate socialism, and they see what it brings as our standard of living and our national debt has exploded in 4 short years. We immediately want it to go away. Unfortunately, our federal governement still holds enough seats to prevent any change.
The liberals have become far left social
The NDP have always been Socialist
The Green party are just lunatics who scream change the environment but offer no real means to do so
the Bloq Quebecois are just pro Quebec
We know what is being pushed in the states and it sucks.
