Screw it, lets get political.

I won't bother trying to mask my opinion. Instead I'll just ask some easy questions.

Let me ask a realistic question: If I hacked into government computers at the Canadian tax offices and withdrew $100,000,000.00 in tax dollars into my bank account, what would you call me? You would be accurate to call me a criminal (and hacker extrodinaire!). And if I was a bank manager for the tax office and allowed $100,000,000.00 in tax dollars to walk out of the bank, I would be criminally negligent. And if I only allowed the money to walk out of the bank for a cut of the stolen tax dollars, I would be guilty of conspiracy and fraud.

Now if I was the owner of the bank and told the bank manager I employeed to do his job in such a way that allowed this to happen, I would still be criminally negligent AND guilty of embezzlement/fraud/conspiracy as well. So explain to me how this actually happened in AdScam and the Liberal Party of Canada (the owners of the bank in this case) are not criminals?

And if anyone needed convincing, it was also documented that they used hired thugs (Liberal Minister Gagliano's "crew") to pressure the business owners involved. I suppose my question is, if they can get away with this and still maintain the popular majority, what couldn't they get away with? What absurd, ridiculous, hugely irresponsible action could cause them defeat? If you are voting for the liberals in this election, I'm curious... what would they actually have to do to lose your vote?

Now I know there's "no one to vote for", but I'm shooting for another minority government which means either NDP or PC need to bolster support. Why? This past minority government did not manage to pass any of the bills into law that I didn't agree with (C-60, C-74), they spent most of their time in-fighting and as a byproduct left me the fuck alone! And that's all I can really look forward to in politics these days.

Left alone by the Federales anyways... on the provincial level I got fucked pretty good, both professionally in the form of poor hydro legislation and personally in the form of the largest single provincial tax increase in history. Not to mention the ass-reaming that I got from the MTO (also provincial). I guess the province hogged me so much there wasn't much left over for the Feds. Though these are minimal considering the smattering of bullshit and propaganda you were subjected to. Just felt the need to seperate the provincial liberals (facists, liars) from the federal liberals (criminals, liars). Of course they're all politicians so the "liars" designation is kind of redundant. ;-)

Green party? heh, dont know about them, but I talked to some people who favour them.

In terms of what the Liberal party did, there is no telling what the other parties would have done in their situation.

The liberals need to be smacked, but I shudder to think of the PC's or NDP having a majority government.

I shudder to think of our government in general. :S

This whole election has me wondering why we should even take part in an election. Think about the groups involved. The liberals are a bunch of crooks, who continually use our money to pay for things they want, or that we don't need. Yeah, Quebec was really gonna leave the country. Well, first off, if they were, good. Who needs them. Second, they wouldn't have since they would have collapsed in about 3 years. So we paid 100+ Million to keep they around. Then we pay another huge amount to discover we paid 100+ million to keep them around. And on top of this, the guy in charge of our money is cleared, saying he didn't know what was going on. Well, if 100 million went missing and he didn't notice, then what the fuck was he doing.
Then there's the "loyal" opposition. The Conservatives, who are so power hungry they tried twice to collapse the government and spend so much time bickering in their own camp they lose one of their key members, to the Liberals of all people. Then there's the NDP, who are so busy trying to black mail the other parties to get what they want, they don't realize that no one wants the massive tax increases that would be necessary to pay for what they want. So who does that leave? No one worth voting for. I think I may just sit this one out.

Regardless if you refuse to vote, one of the parties is going to attain power over you. So it's in your best interest to vote. Vote for anyone, vote for no one and make a protest vote in ruining your ballot. Write "there's no one to fucking vote for!" across your ballot, but atleast stand up and be counted among those who deserve the remaining freedoms provided by our husk of democratic process.

I think I might take my cue from R2K and vote for a write-in candidate.. perhaps TURD SANDWICH!

Y'know, each party has it's draw-backs. but the freakiest thing about the conservatives is how quickly in the last election Steven Harper wanted to get in ka-hoots with BUSH.. Yeah.. uhm, no thanks.
Then there's the liberals who remind me of an italian mob.. and I know I WON'T be voting Stronach.. F*** that, she'll just walk across the floor again if her party doesn't win anyway...
