Stephen Taylor, erstwhile Fellow at the Manning Centre, has this to say about the left and right side of Canadian politics:
"As a conservative, I have for the most part found intellectual solace in logic on issue tracks where my bleeding-heart friends usually hug the emotional left rail. The broad-arching free markets help rise more people out of poverty than knee-jerk social and emotional reaction to give hand-outs to sustain a substandard of living is but one example where cold right-wing logic is a better and more constructive end that short-sighted albeit well-meaning emotionalism. I have always believed that right-wingers act upon what they know to be true, whereas left-wingers act upon what they feel to be true."
Oh sweet vengeful Odin, am I ever sick of this ridiculous nonsense that the "lefties" feel things, whereas the good and true conservatives "know" things. Stephen. Fu...um, go to h..., no wait, piss off. How does that feel?
And any time you want to highlight those vaunted scientific chops of yours, and show us the logical, intellectual studies that demonstrate how the Reformers think, and the goddamn commies feel, well then please let us know. We'll get our crying towels ready and have some tea on the boil, just to keep us comforted during the long cold night of our discontent.
