American politics is well to the right of Canada. If you consider the political parties of each country as a range from right to left, the Canadian range is well to the left of the American range.
I think that this used to be true, but in the last few years our politics seem to have been polarizing along US lines... I know several partisan Liberals that I could have had a reasonable conversation with not long ago, who now sing from the same hymn book as the BDS infected, Michael Moore wing of the Democrats.
Of course, its entitrely possible that my own views have shifted further right as well.

It is one thing to be conservative. It is quite another to be completely incompetent. That's what the present Republicans are. Completely incompetent. They've either ignored major issues that are begging to be fixed, like health-care costs, or totally mishandled whatever they have touched, like Iraq and Katrina.
This is not the party of Ronald Reagan or even Bush Sr., who I would have gladly supported if I was American. This lot is borderline insane. They very badly need a time-out. Let the Democrats screw things up for a change.
Both party's are simply laughable, and the irony is you would think in all this mess there would be a serge in interest in third party folk, but it seems Americans are happy in their muck.
