    It's ammusing to hear conservatives pontificating about how the Liberals should conduct their affairs. Especially when their advice is to say do as I say - not as I do. This conservative party is the most divisive government in history and they're telling the Liberals not to be divisive. Not that I'm in favour of divisiveness but it worked wonders for the conservatives and it is because they know it works that they don't want Liberals doing the same thing.

    What about Trudeau, when he gave the west the finger? Canadians like Prime Minister Stephen Harper...he hasn't stolen our tax dollars, and he lowered the GST, something Chretien said he's do. Do I believe anything from the Liberal party? NO!!Just their usual vote pandering. Paul Martin was good at that too. No liberal delivered on the DAY CARE BS yet either, that they promised. Look what they did to our military. PM Harper got 13 seats in Quebec....not from dividing the country. Liberal talk once again....all blather and no substance.

    Where is the HRC? What Graves called for was a war of Hate against a large portion of the Canadian public, not to mention advocating the disunity of the country by way of political manipulation is traitorous.

    Manchild
    You obviously are a young childman not to know that the Liberals are the most divisive party in Canada and everything they did was east V west English V French , Women V men.
    I fail to see how the Cons even come close to the divide and conquer tactics of the Liberal party of it's sitting members, Canada be damned Party.

    Of course politicians are divisive - that is they try to find the issues that will set them off from other parties and win them votes. The question is, what issues should the Liberals be divisive about? The list Graves gave ("Cosmopolitanism versus parochialism, secularism versus moralism, Obama versus Palin, tolerance versus racism and homophobia, democracy versus autocracy") contains some issues that would work (e.g., tolerance), some that wouldn't (e.g., parallels to US politics, seclarism, cosmopolitanism). I agree with the write that a US style "culture war" strategy for the Liberals would be a mistake.

    Here is a powerful NEW documentary for you, which will put the final nail in the coffin of any doubts that a dictatorial elite is openly setting up an authoritarian system of world government designed to concentrate power and crush the freedom and living standards of the middle class.

    Film maker Jason Bermas has collected a truly monumental amount of video archive and document material to render completely obsolete claims that the agenda of today’s ruling elite is not the open move towards a global totalitarian world government which will be run to the detriment of the people in the self-interests of the tiny ruling class that sit atop the power pyramid.

    Manchild - I fail to see how the Conservatives are divisive. Perhaps some evidence. I'd love to see things from your perspective.

    The problem for the Liberals is when we look at their decision to whip the Private Member's Bill on the gun registry it appears that they have taken Graves advice to heart and are trying to start a culture war. I had to laugh at Manchild's comment about the CPC (interesting name your parents gave you) "most divisive government in history" you claim. Perhaps you aren't old enough to remember the famous line “screw the west and take the rest.” It looks to me like Graves’ advice is a tried and true Liberal formula, rip the country apart for the good of the party.

    Yeah let's have the liberals explain to us how they think? They believe that Guergis and Jaffer are the anti-christ couple.. what is the crime again? They believe that Canadian soldiers are undisciplined and mean, they sloppily tortured and handed over to others various Afghani's for torture. What else do they think is the 'crime of the century?' Of course if the MSM wasn't behind them 110% this would have died in days and been forgotten by now. When you need to make a mole hill into a mountain just call up the Canadian media.

    Manchild, if by divisive you mean how Harper manhandles the opposition in a minority parliament, then I agree. But that's just politics. Outside the HOC, I see the opposite. For the life of me, I cannot remember a time when federal-provincial relations were ever this harmonious. This is a refreshing change.
