Many progressives causes are based on myths

Many of the causes championed by “progressive” politicians like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne are based on myths.

The myth that police are inherently racist, that income distribution is unfair, that the rich don’t pay their share of taxes, that a “green” energy future free of fossil fuels is just a wand-wave away, that higher taxes and deficit spending will grow the economy, that radical Islam is not a threat, that governments spend less on First Nations than on other Canadians, and so on, are all mostly wrong.

Like many myths, though, they are very powerful, especially in the age of social media where trendy ideas go viral almost instantly.

    Eventually, after much unnecessary hardship burdened on those of us busting our butts to eke out a living and pay our taxes, Canadians may eventually come to recognize the obvious. Not for a long time though, and never for the entitled.

    Good picture of Junior and that is exactly how he represents Canadians not by giving us the finger but by sticking his butt at us. You have to wonder why Canadians can’t see that an ass is an ass and that is what is representing us.

    Women will believe whatever you tell them.

      That does appear to be the case for most unless it is from their husband or father, but not all. I find however it is the same with the metrosexual crowd, male and female.

        Metrosexuals are, by definition, testosterone-deficient.

        But even a cursory review of the literature will reveal that a large proportion of women voters decide their votes with their lady parts and not their lady smarts.

        In contrast, straight men do not vote with their dicks.

        I always thought that Metrosexuals were just gays without the courage to come out of the closet.

      Perhaps for the women you know; not for those in our family. But then, as my father once said, we come from a long line of strong women.
