I am confused, at how 38% of Canadians can say they would vote for Stephen Harper. Don’t even understand how 51% can think Jack Layton is the better leader, but then I suppose I am out of step, with the values that exist here in Canada today.
I grew up where LIARS weren’t rewarded with more votes, but were turfed from office.
I grew up at a time when leaders who did nothing, rarely stayed on as Leaders, and were rapidly dismissed from party ranks.
I grew up in a time when people voted for a Party, not out of fear of the other guy, but because the other guy didn’t support the policies that were in tune with our beliefs.
FUNNY HOW THAT HAS CHANGED TODAY, WHERE WE REWARD LIARS, CHEATS, CROOKS, AND INCOMPETENCE WITH THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT, WE AS A NATION, HAS. OUR VOTES.
Among decided respondents, the Conservatives drew 38.4 per cent support, followed by the Liberals at 26.8 per cent and the New Democratic Party at 16.7 per cent. ( CBC News )
I guess I am just too old. I mean to me, it is supposed to mean something, when a leader tells me he will do something, and then immediately goes back on his word. Think for a second here, because it was just a year ago, when Stephen Harper told us we would have a surplus, that our economy was bullet proof. Now take a look around, at how much of YOUR money is being spent, to protect us, from what we weren’t supposed to experience.
The Harper regime no longer protects our food supply, that has been turned over to the very people who need watching.
Banks are allowed to hide bad debts, which is what helped put the US Economy into such a tailspin.
Harper tells us that less people claimed EI last month, but stopped recording where those people went to. Did they get jobs, or did they simply run out of benefits?
Brian Mulroney, Harper’s teacher and best friend, told us we would have a deficit of 28 Billion, and when we kicked his sorry ass out of office, we found out the deficit was really SIXTY BILLION.
Paul Martin and his crap was not much better, he just wanted the title Prime Minister, but didn’t want to earn it, like Jean Chretien did. Instead, he ran a government without direction, literally handing over the reins to Harper who is not a conservative, but an ALLIANCE PARTY MAN, WHO STOLE THE CONSERVATIVE LABEL & TAG.
Yet 38% support a man whose sole aim is to buffer the corporate coffers. He has lied, and we have rewarded him with power, and it makes no sense to me. Mulroney took his payoffs in brown paper bags, and to this day, Stephen Harper protects him. Makes you wonder, is his paper bag a Gucci one?
Just one year ago, Stephen Harper attacked the Liberals, not for their policies, but because Dion had trouble in communicating in English. I don’t know, I call that racist, but hey, what do I know, I am just a Jew and Gay, who will soon be subject to more Hate, because Mr. Harper and his party are attempting to do away with the Human Rights Commission, and our Hate Laws.
Yet this is what 38% of my fellow Canadians seem to want, because they can get UP TO $1350 in tax credits, for renovating their home. Course they have to SPEND TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS TO GET IT, which means off to the bank they go, to get a loan at 10% interest, go further into debt, which is really going to benefit our economy, isn’t it?
51% of us seem to think Jack Layton is doing a great job as leader of the NDP, but we won’t vote for those Socialists, as we’d rather have Harper, who won’t lift a finger to help Canadians abroad if they are colored, muslim, or just plain not white anglo saxon protestants. NICE, that we have our priorities straight isn’t it?
I mean he won’t bring back Khadr, who was a kid when captured, but he’ll move heaven and earth to get back some real estate hot shot, who committed a crime in Mexico? Oh and he’ll let foreign workers in, because well, they’ll do jobs us Canadians won’t do. After all, that line worked for George Bush, why shouldn’t work for his clone? AND IT IS, after all, 38% support Harper & his Conservatives.
