""The anti support was led by the wealthier merchants in St. Johns who under Canada would lose their monopoly over the islands wealth and economy. And the Irish catholics. Partially they didn't wish to be under Protestant English canada,…"
"It wasn't an independence movement since we were already independent. I guess i should have called them pro and anti confederation.

"I don't think it's a question of the Libs having a better plan. I think it's two things:
1. Everyone talks a good game about voting NDP . . . until it actually becomes time to vote. That's when "just not ready"…"
"Don't believe the NDP spin. If Canadians voted strategically we would have an NDP govt. as they reminded everyone throughout the campaign, they only needed an extra 39 odd seats. the liberals had a good plan (at least a better one than the ndp…"
"I know in Newfoundland we are entering a generation that votes less because of their parents and more because of their beliefs. Traditionally, Nflders who supported confederation and Smallwood voted liberal (as did their kids) while those who voted…"
"Jack took his seat for granted and Nick wirked his ass off and won. I know Nick growing up (good friend of my brother) and think he's going to make an excellent MP.
Also, nice to finally see a fellow Newfoundlander here. And a fellow townie…"
"I think fluidity makes sense too. I was just stating my surprise.
Let's be realistic though. The reason the liberals got 184 seats instead of 145ish seats is because of strategic anti-Harper voting, not because of anything in their platform.…"
"I think fluidity makes sense. It makes sense to look at the current conditions and to vote for the candidate or party that can best address them. It's unlikely that it'll always be the same candidate or party, so it makes sense to be fluid…"
"I can't believe how fluid Canadian voters are...
In America, you would never see a candidate go from 70% of the vote in 2008 and 2011 to 45% of the vote in 2015. Yet, somehow Jack Harris looks like he's going to lose his seat in St.…"
"Loads of people online have signed up "Harper's Going Away Party" but I don't think the outcome is as certain as people think it is.
Anyone staying up to watch the results?
I'm in Ottawa so yes otherwise…"
"For me personally the two things I have looked up the most are the Sun Salute and the Moon Salute as they are pretty simple but cover a lot of area.

"Nah we own that all the way to the top of the globe. We have neighbour adjacent to us up there (ex: Denmark via Greenland, Russia) but if you went any more north you'd actually start going south into another hemisphere. "
How do I delete all my posts from the sex group. I'm interested in continuing with the group, but was harangued incessantly by Jack Bauer there-seems like a really mean fellow who brought his shit into that thread on me. Seems he's done it to others at AoM. How to delete?
"Sounds like the first three are just stupid. They know there's a term "no-fly" zone that kept us theoretically involved in controlling Iraq through the 90's, without any political cost, and so they endorse the phrase…"
"I wear leggings when I work out, and if I have nothing else to wear then I'll throw them on while I'm doing laundry. They're honestly more comfortable than any of the sweatpants I own and because of the material I don't really…"
"Jen, Rubio, and Clinton want a no fly zone over Syria, meaning a direct confrontation with everyone flying in Syria, to include Syrians and Russians. Look at what's happening now because Turkey got uppity.
