I would be, I’ve met both men and there both very educated when it comes to what there talking about.
Way to show your amazing personality. Went from a guy who could bring up a decent debate to ‘ribbing’ some people you probably don’t know on HTMF. Nicely done .
Why bother? Everyone see’s it coming, even NDP’ers. The only vote
most liberals will be getting is from apparent ‘strategical voters’ and
there past supporters, but even there past supporters are swinging right-
of-center. Any slightly educated person realizes it, so I don’t see why
you’d bother ‘ribbing’. Plus…how long do you think this government will
last anyhow? I imagine it won’t last long, unless if the Bloc all of a
sudden start rubbing shoulders with the Reformists.
But Michael Moore said it best. Canadians seemed to have thrown there
pride out the window and are going to be finally taught how to roll over.
It’s the exact thing the ambassador has been telling us to do and we
for some reason or another are doing it. How disturbing is that?
[quote]Oh, Canada – you’re not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That’s a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny. Maybe it’s a new form of Canadian irony – reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq – and then you elect a prime minister who’s for it. You declare gay people have equal rights – and then you elect a man who says they don’t. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory – and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense! Only Canadians could pull off a hat trick of humor like that. My hat’s off to you.
Far be it from me, as an American, to suggest what you should do. You already have too many Americans telling you what to do. Well, actually, you’ve got just one American who keeps telling you to roll over and fetch and sit. I hope you don’t feel this appeal of mine is too intrusive but I just couldn’t sit by, as your friend, and say nothing. Yes, I agree, the Liberals have some ‘splainin’ to do. And yes, one party in power for more than a decade gets a little… long. But you have a parliamentary system (I’ll bet you didn’t know that – see, that’s why you need Americans telling you things!). There are ways at the polls to have your voices heard other than throwing the baby out with the bath water.
These are no ordinary times, and as you go to the polls on Monday, you do so while a man running the nation to the south of you is hoping you can lend him a hand by picking Stephen Harper because he’s a man who shares his world view. Do you want to help George Bush by turning Canada into his latest conquest? Is that how you want millions of us down here to see you from now on? The next notch in the cowboy belt? C’mon, where’s your Canadian pride? I mean, if you’re going to reduce Canada to a cheap download of Bush & Co., then at least don’t surrender so easily. Can’t you wait until he threatens to bomb Regina? Make him work for it, for Pete’s sake.
But seriously, I know you’re not going to elect a guy who should really be running for governor of Utah. Whew! I knew it! You almost had me there. Very funny. Don’t do that again. God, I love you, you crazy cold wonderful neighbors to my north. Don’t ever change.
