Comment Re:Is Canada Better? (Score 2) 590

The Charter of Rights is close to the strength of the 1st amendment.

The main difference is section 1 of the Charter which is "The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society." The allows us do things like limit political donations.

We also have a hate speech law, but it is applied only in extraordinary cases and most prosecutions go allow the way to the supreme court.

As a Canadian I'm not allowed to vote.

The premise of the question is that I'm going to get beaten and I have to live with that. The premise of the election is a choice between Trump and Clinton. Both are bad, but I believe one is much worse then the other. If you don't live a swing state, feel free to vote for a 3rd party, but if Trump wins there may not be a next time to try and get better choices.
