Our first-past-the-post (FPTP) voting system is fine. Maryam Monsef's rhetoric about bringing Canada's democracy into the 21st Century comes from her party's grab-bag of fun words and platitudes. It's the same grab-bag that Justin used when he was buttering up naïve students and first-time voters last fall. They're fanciful words that serve no other purpose but to sell an agenda. It's like a car salesman using your own emotional yearnings to upgrade you to a Cadillac just to fatten his own wallet. His tried and tested techniques are designed to bypass your logic and go straight for your feelings. You don't need a new Cadillac, just like Canada doesn't need a new electoral system, but those well-rehearsed talking points are designed to make your emotions take control of the wheel.

The progressive globalists mean business. Trump's candidacy threatens to end a decades-long effort to dissolve national sovereignty and erase America's borders. Donald Trump may not be the most perfect candidate for some conservatives, but his presidency would rebuild American sovereignty and restore America's right to self determination. That means it will once again be Americans charting their country's course, not the bureaucrats who have been selling American sovereignty to the United Nations on a piecemeal basis since 1988. Donald Trump threatens to give America back to Americans and take it away from a dynasty of globalist bureaucrats. America doesn't belong to Saudi Arabia, Mexico or Europe. It belongs to Americans. Americans are people who descended from and who are legal immigrants.

Much has been made about Donald Trump's temperament. They say he's unfit to hold office and shouldn't be trusted with the nuclear codes, despite the fact he was against the Iraq War and that the nuclear codes aren't just handed over to any sitting president without due process. It seems the media is reluctant to address Hillary Clinton's temperament and her scandalous history, while they continue to dig into Trump University and Trump's business dealings. To go where mainstream media won't, let's take a look at Hillary's dubious past and her questionable temperament.

Trump has repeatedly promised to, in effect, tone things down in pursuit of this very goal, and while the jury is out on whether or not that will occur, one area where he has begun to demonstrate this (on both presentation and policy) has been in the realm of foreign affairs. This would already be a fertile field for any Republican challenger, given that the pinnacle of Mrs. Clinton’s rather mangy resume is her time as Secretary of State under President Obama, whose two terms in office can be admitted to being a foreign policy fiasco with the few dubious achievements largely coming after Mrs. Clinton left the post. Trump has managed to elevate this opportunity even further by opportunistically using it as a chance to emphasize his outsider credentials by presenting a vision of America’s foreign affairs that is objectively quite unique from what the governing consensus has been for decades.

In the last weekend of May, Conservative Party delegates from across Canada converged on Vancouver to delete the party's traditional definition of marriage, among other things. The proposal to delete the definition was accepted by a vast majority of delegates – 1036 to 462 to be exact. The proposal was originally written and introduced by a few young heterosexuals, including Joseph Heap and Natalie Pon. Leading up to convention, the proposal gained the support of LGBTory, a small group of activists with scarce resources. In the days that followed the convention and the successful policy change, deranged social conservatives began coming out of the woodwork to attack the supporting delegates and to spread misinformation.
