    This country is too poor to be giving stuff away for free. Almost 20T and growing in debt and we spend 69% of the federal budget is spent on social programs. That is not the purpose of the Federal Government.

    Medicare 25% Social security 24 % social needs like housing assistance 20% Debt service 6%. EVERYTHING ELSE including defense makes up the last 25%.

    Middle class here.

    1. How does taxing the "rich" help the poor? There is no correlation between taxation and government spending.

    2. Has a "poor" man ever employed you?

    3. I don't need or want the government telling me what I can and cannot do in every aspect of my life.

    4. I disagree with most on the right with abortion. It is

    Freedom is > Equality.

    Individual rights > community rights.

    Smaller government is > more regulations and laws

    Unfortunately most republicans are the same as most democrats with the exception of a few choice areas, abortion, guns, taxes... Neither cares about the country, only about giving hand outs to their prospective voters in return for votes and continued congressional employment.

As much as I appreciate Canada, this package of toxicity is just what we do not need, require, or should adopt. Thank you for cooler heads with common sense. To the few hired by this Canadian enterprise, sorry, but please go get a real job with credible social improvement. Spreading this highly toxic oil, that we do not use, through the Midwest is begging the question, "who's running this country?".

    Safe to say you walk everywhere?

    If you really cared about the environment, you would realize the price of oil is too expensive for Canada to produce it. the US can become the country of origin. The pipeline can flow north letting the Canadians keep their oil sands in the ground and use less energy intense oil while creating US jobs.

    Have you ever noticed it's the "gun free zones" that have all the mass killings?

    Why do you they pick these places that have zero gun tolerance when entering a building with guns and the goal of shooting people?

    The best way to stop a man with a gun shooting up a place is to discuss things with him? Or do you believe the only reason this criminal has a gun is because of the legality to buy a gun and the bullets?
