This situation exists because Canadians aren't willing to fight corruption any more than the Americans are.
Very few countries have leaders intelligent enough not to let their economies get damaged by the U.S. banking fraud scam.
The saddest thing is that now we've had a warning, but even the Bush Recession isn't enough to force the lazy masses to stand up like adults and fight back.

We should be thankful we aren't getting screwed as hard as a lot of other western countries right now.

But, you're very close to them, and how much damage do you think Republicans will do if they win in 2012?
Look at their record - sending US jobs to China (Nixon), trickle-down economics fraud (Reagan), New World Order (Bush), 2 wars and tax cuts for the rich (Bush Jr.), cutting programs that save lives and homes of Americans (Boehner), trying to eliminate SSI (most of them), etc.
It's a long list, yet most Americans are so brain-dead that they keep voting for their worst enemies, and I don't see them wising up. Blame the media too, but that's just going to get worse. Topix is one of the only free speech forms available, and if they crack down, it's one of the first things they'll attack.
So, don't get comfortable just yet.

If anyones to blame for the state the western nations are in its the leftists that have been running them and making policy for 40 odd years.That includes Republicans ,who are more left than right.
Like the "Bush's".
..........
Canada has the 3rd best economy in the world now owing to "Harpers" conservative economic policys.
"Harper's a social liberal ,and an economic conservative,which makes him a moderate at best.
..........
Only about half the Americans are brain dead ,the ones who voted for a Kenyan Marxist Muslim named Barak Hussein Obama.

..........

And if anyone is censoring free speech on topix it's the liberal/left,just try typing in any minority based racial slur and see if it makes it past the liberal/left Politically Correct Soviet Style Thought police.
Try the "N" word.
..........

Cultural Marxism at work.
..........
Case closed.

Here's a good example of how truly stupid the Right is.
They've been outraged that Bush has been blamed for any of this, and actually think, in their little pea brains, that a country can be turned around in a very short time, when in reality it's more like a fully loaded freight train that takes a long, long time to stop.
THEN, when they might have to face reality, they suddenly decide that it's ok to go back into the past to blame Democrats, but not just a year or two. No, they go back DECADES.
No consistence. No common sense. No true intelligence. Just stupidity and lies.

I agree, they do, but WHY?
Because Mexicans WORK TOGETHER for their mutual benefit, which is something the American people haven't learned in their entire lives. Even as they watch an invasion from a foreign country, and how it's successful because they work together, the American masses just don't get it.
The feds can not ignore a nation when most of the people are on the same track.

Welcome to reality, "next generation of workers." Leave your arrogant sense of entitlement at the door.

The post-WW2 boom, when the developing world was just getting unshackled from colonialism and the rest of the world's industrial base was all but destroyed from WW2, is over. The world is now competitive. That means you have to compete. So shut up and get to work.

Immigrants should be barred from employment, social services, education and health care in the West. Perhaps then they will stay in their own wretched countries and not leech off the generosity of Western society...all the while refusing to assimilate and demanding special rights.

That's too general. Some immigrants are a blessing, but the Mexicans are largely corrupt and don't want to change.
I've had to deal with them and see how they teach their kids to be successful criminals. They simply see nothing wrong with it, I guess.
Worst of all, they smile at us, then tell their kids we are their enemy.
We can't get them out for two reasons.
The feds WANT them here, and the American people are too stupid to learn to work together, which is why our country is dying internally too.
The Mexicans are just taking advantage of the fact that our worst enemies are our own leaders, and if we're too pathetic to take control of our own country, then we deserve to be taken over.

Canadians also need to worry about that.(next post)
