I really, really don't want Harper and the Conservatives to be in power any longer, he's a jingoistic, bombastic tit and they are a bunch of corrupt US-kotowing bastards.

Sadly Dion is completely spineless and utterly useless so I can't see much changing soon!

kick them both (Conservatives & Liberals) out for awhile
Now that's a realistic suggestion :roll:

What are the odds of someone except the Conservatives
or Liberals forming the government? ZERO.

**** NEWS FLASH ****

Canada isn't a functioning democracy. It doesn't matter
whether or not you vote. It doesn't matter who you vote
for. At the end of the election, one of two groups of self-
serving elitist lawyers is going to be running the country,
and there really isn't very much difference between them.

Both will do anything to get into power. Neither of them
stands for anything except them avoiding working for
a living, and ripping off the taxpayer as much as they can,
and still stay in power.

Good debate. I'm most definitely a floating voter but I think it'll be liberal this time, because:

1) I can accept the fraud and embezzlement (liberals), but I can't accept sending guys and girls off to unnecessary made-up wars (Iraq) if the conservatives had their way.
2) The NDP ... well ... bunch of headline grabbing loonies.
3) Tax - despite paying a lot of it, I actually think I get relatively good value-for-money for my tax dollar and a tax-cut wouldn't be a vote-swayer for me. I'm in favour of the carbon tax as I strongly believe we need to reduce our usage of oil (although I don't particularly subscribe to any enviro-religion). I can't see any better way of encouraging reduction in oil consumption other than a revenue-neutral tax of usage. Increased fuel tax over the long term helps to ameliorate the economic pain of oil price fluctuations. Although there should be greater disparity between urban/suburban and rural areas in terms of price structures.
4) The conservatives seem to be a little too in bed with Dubbya

Other things that aren't election issues but would likely sway me if they were:
1) Legalize marijuana (and tax it) - I don't see any problem with it relative to alcohol or tobacco. None of my pot-head buddies are a problem to anyone - lest themselves. This would rapidly end much illicit wealth distribution too.
2) Polygamy - it's time to get rid of this state-sponsored culture of systematic & repetitive child rape and abuse
3) Giving the IDA a damn good kicking and implementing an equivalent to the SEC in the states, for properly punishing white-collar criminals for the crimes they commit.
4) Protecting/Claiming Canada's northern resources in the Arctic. There's a lot of opportunity up there, much of it is rightly ours. I'm not convinced the liberals have the balls to properly claim it.

Hedley mentioned the Income Trust debacle. I wasn't exposed at the time so lost nothing, but I think it was a loophole that needed closing, heck, even pizza delivery companies were setting themselves up as income trusts. They shouldn't have made it an election pledge, just done it sooner so there was less investor pain.

One great thing about election campaigns though, is the huge bonanza of editorial cartoons showing up in the daily newspaper for all to enjoy!

Most people don't realize the extent of the truth in that statement

http://thetyee.ca/Mediacheck/2005/11/29/HarperBush/

Harper is a Neocon , -extremely well disguised under nearly impenetrable layers of painted on image.

That in itself isn't a reason to vote against him-the best possible outcome is another minority government-it doesn't really matter who wins it, since the population of North America has entirely lost control of their governments in the last two decades;the only empowerment left in the ballot, in selecting the red sock puppet or the blue sock puppet-is in limiting their ability to do further damage to our freedom.

So will Harper be in bed with McCain when he wins? Will he be in bed with Obama if he's prez? So, getting along with your #1 trading partner is considered sleeping with them? :roll:

I'll guarantee you they'll make the next government, but I think it's a coin toss if it'll be a majority. Here's for hop'n

"Made up?" I won't start but I can agree that Canadian's have no place there.

It's a shame that the whole country doesn't yet realize this.

You actually believe that a Carbon tax will reduce consumption? You still have to heat your house, drive to work, buy things that are trucked. It's a scam.

One would think that the Amaaaricans would scream bloody murder, and the border would turn into a snail crawl whilst everything is inspected, private or commercial.

I would reword this to it's time the law applied to everybody equally.

Agree.

I would question whether the liberals have the balls yes, but it is without question that the liberals under stephanie dianne willmost certainly not.
