Trump's Very Narrow Path To Victory

October 10th, 2020 | TC

Very few pollsters were right in 2016, but the one that stands out is Trafalgar Group. As I mentioned in my previous poll analysis, they were the only polling agency to correctly predict that Trump would win Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. This time around, however, even Trafalgar is showing a significant decline in support for Donald Trump in key battlegrounds. This all makes Donald Trump's path to victory more narrow than it was at this time last year. 

They Hope Trump Will Die

October 2nd, 2020 | Spartacus

As you may have heard, Trump and his wife have tested positive for Coronavirus and are experiencing mild cold-like symptoms, according to the White House physician. To those who have spent the last three years crying under their beds and praying for impeachment to work, there couldn't be better news. These also happen to be the same people who believe everything mainstream media tells them, which means they actually believe Trump could succumb to the illness. 

How Pandemic Rules Can Ruin Our Kids

October 1st, 2020 | RR

Wear a mask, stand six feet apart, stay home, don't touch each other and avoid all physical contact when possible. Those are the rules we've been told to live by in order to save the 1% of our population that can't survive a bad cold. In the meantime, 100% of our youngest children are growing up to believe that this behaviour is normal, necessary and healthy. It might be a while until we see the long term and generational consequences of these new rules, but we shouldn't expect them to be positive. 

Why The NDP Are Imploding In Saskatchewan

October 1st, 2020 | JH

By 2003, the Saskatchewan NDP had been running on Tommy Douglas fumes for far too long. Lorne Calvert was the last NDP Premier of Saskatchewan and he was heavily branded in the Tommy Douglas mold. His church minister background and his grandfatherly vocal patterns, heck, even his haircut… all brought in associations with Douglas. This allowed one more final win for the NDP in 2003. 

The Truth About Universal Basic Income

October 1st, 2020 | DS

The CERB plan was an experiment and a harbinger of things to come. For Liberals, it offered a way to secure votes during one of the worst economic downturns in history. For Conservatives, the long term economic realities are too grim to keep it going. A Universal Basic Income had never been tried until now, but opinions are still mixed. The final outcome resulted in what many economists had predicted: a shortage of labour and a dampening of the recovery. 

How To Fix Our Broken Democracy

October 1st, 2020 | CW

Democratic reform is desperately needed in Canada. The usual mainstream prescriptions consist of proposals to make things more democratic in the hopes that representation will be more accurate and, thus, satisfying to the voters. Calls for proportional representation are often heard and ignored. Senate reform has been proven impossible. Adjusting seat counts across the country is simply nibbling at the margins.

The Wasteland Of Lost Opportunities

October 1st, 2020 | RR

People who strictly adhere to their principles end up alone and destitute in a barren wasteland of lost opportunities. Their principles never take them where they want to go. As many of us have learned over time, principles only have value in a world where everyone has the same ones. With age and experience comes wisdom. To achieve anything resembling an ideal world, we often have to throw our principles aside on the battlefield. 

Trick Or Treat: Halloween Is Not Cancelled

October 1st, 2020 | SP

Trick or treat, my little disobedient hooligans. The air is ripe with the stench of authoritarianism this Halloween, which is precisely why we will take our children door to door this year to collect the candy that is due. From the sparkling coasts of British Columbia to the jagged coasts of PEI, Canadians should relish their God given rights to dress up, enjoy the brisk autumn air and indulge this fun annual event.

You Should Watch Cobra Kai

October 1st, 2020 | JH

A couple of months ago I wrote an article lamenting the loss of the summer movie season due to Covid-19 closures. I recommended a series of old blockbusters from yesteryear as a substitute for missing out on 2020’s biggest movies. Since this is Poletical,  I made sure that the list contained movies that weren’t only fun and mainstream, but also politically incorrect by modern standards. Wokeness has poisoned so much of our modern entertainment that it’s hard to avoid now.
