I know, I'm not starting a thread with a news story (shock!). Been looking at the elections lately and thinking about what a circus this has been so far. I watch Harper and I keep asking myself only one question, "Did this twat really get elected?" I mean, really, this guy has continually embarrassed Canada on the world stage over the last few years. On several times, he started spouting on about domestic politics at a podium on the international freaking stage! Does he really think the other politicians give a flying fuck about how bad and evil the Liberals are in Canada? Fuck, he really didn't have a clue! Then he turns around and has one scandal after another like doctoring legal government papers and is found in contempt of parliament. There's RCMP probes abound and he's even had to fire some of his MPs for wrong-doing (and in one case, without any reason at all) Added to that, he sold out Canada on the softwood lumber "deal", plunging entire economies into disarray (some communities are even seeing their one mill close down, pretty much screwing entire small towns from what I've heard) Then, there's the obvious fighter jet scandal that was a complete circus. Not to mention, he's basically trying to hide actual data about how much his budget costs. Then ends the session for being found in contempt (I think I said this twice) Now, he's screaming bloody murder about how evil the opposition is without any vision for what he wants. All he talks about is the coalition and how amazingly fantastic he is. Yeah, clearly the guy doesn't have a plan. Right now, I'm definitely voting NDP. I'm watching the election so far, but it's only solidifying my vote to the NDP. At least they aren't convicted criminals.
