Now ladies and gents, I have little to no interest in politics... I probably know even less about the subject then the interest level I have... What I do know is, all politicians are liars... and paid quite well to do so.

I have a few questions that our members might be able to help me with...

1. Harper is ruining our country from the inside out... everything the man says is bulls**t... And most times when someone asks him a question he completely avoids the subject and goes off on a tangent about something completely unrelated to what was asked with a smile.

Now I also believe that the general public not only in this country but the rest of the world is half retarded... so maybe most people don't actually notice his tactics... but I see this all the time in debating on our lovely forum, so I am quite at home noticing this nonsense.

The question here is.... WHY would anyone want to put this man back in control of our country?????????

We know he is a liar... He has proved it time and time again... and he's still doing it every time he opens his mouth!


2. The big campaign against Justin Trudeau is that "He's just not ready"... basically saying he is too young

Why is age a factor in who leads the country?

We've been led by old fogies for the entire history of our country... why not let some new blood in?

They say... "being prime minister isn't an entry level job"... LMAO!!

Anyone with half a brain could do the job... the proof of this is that our previous Prime Ministers including the present one do not even have that.


3. The NDP is the only party that hasn't ever had a chance to lead the country... and the basic reason is the Demon from the depths... That's right, they're socialists...

Why are people so afraid of that word?

socialism has given this country a lot of things... such as universal health care.

Do people think Canada will become the next Nazi Germany if a socialist party leads?

When it comes down to it.... could they really do any worse then this asshat we have in the seat right now?

Please people.... edjamacate me

Let me be perfectly clear . :>) It's his appeal to the conservative base where he gets his votes .That base is diminishing to a certain degree but he should have no problem getting around 28% of the vote . He is a pro politician and uses the other 3 partied to divide the vote as well .

You are correct on the lies and the deceiving at every step by the Harper Government, I see no problem with a young PM at all. What I really have a problem with is just watching Harper make a speech. You know how it is when you meet someone for the first time and you either like them or hate them? Well from the get go I could not stand Harper and never will.

We here are both going Orange this year and hell yes call me a socialist if that tag still works for NDP :-)
Canada in officially in a Recession now but the Harper crew refuses to say that word. But he is just as eager as ever to send our funds overseas to fight the good war.

Lord help all Canadians at this time.

Regards, Iwinder

Harper needs to be fired, preferably from a canon at sea. He has further destroyed Canada with his benefactor's policies, the banking and corporate complexes.

Trudeau's father is the one who started the downward trend in three ways, multicult, political correctness and very importantly privatizing the bank of canada to give control of the economy to the IMF via shareholder banks and cartels like Goldman sucks. The apple does not fall far from the tree and his mother's mental issues could also play a role here.

Mulcair is a nice guy with a rational approach. He's also, IMHO, a coward. He will not do the things necessary to end the corruption, reverse the "fire sale" or dismantle the imf's financial control. He will be pressured into being the same puppet as Harper or the banking cartels will make a Canadian jfk of him I expect.

So, all three doors lead to the same hell.

BTW, Canada is not a country, it IS a colony. The head of state is NOT the prime minister, it is the English monarch through its proxy the grovellor general.

Looking at it pragmatically(and this conservative wants Harper gone), there are 3 options. Vote Conservative if you think they are going to do the job. The other 2 are protest votes. Governments don't get voted in. Governments get voted out. Lib or NDP. When it comes to this you can vote the party that you think can do the job or vote to beat the Conservative candidate. It's not always the same. Maybe the NDP candidate is stronger in your riding. Or the Lib's. I LOVE my Conservative MP. Confusing as hell for me.

When I was in University, one vote option was the chair. The chair can win the election like any candidate. It was a way for saying that no one are fit for the position. If the chair win, no one take the position and the task are redistributed to the other people in the counciI (or at all, if they really are no need). I wish I could vote for the chair in federal election...
I will vote for the PQ or Green, they won't win, but it will piss off the other parties.

Or "None of the Above". Nice in theory but it doesn't work. If 10,000 people voted for NOTA and someone voted for a candidate. Only that 1 vote counts. Their game. You can't beat it.

The important difference between the chair and to cancel: the chair can win by majority. So if 50%+1 vote for the chair, no one is elected. It was really usefull since sometime people was there only for the money.

The funy thing is that some country already run without gouvernement for few years without adverse effect. The organisation is so large that it can run itself few years. It would be funy to see the debate about why they should be elected (over the chair) and not how they are better than another.

The monarchy, probably the most expensive inbred welfare family on the planet, is part of the problem, not part of the solution. You can't expect a bunch of twits that are benefiting from the system to change it, no more than you would expect any criminal to convict themselves.

That's why they have "front men" called politicians. They make the laws to protect their owners and ride on the backs of everyone else.

Im tore between Libs and NDP. just like most people, heck the country.

i like Libs a tad more over NDP personal/economical reason.

i feel like our Anti-conservative votes gonna get split(like last time) and Conservatives gonna get to ruin the country more. Thanks to harper, our military is not peacekeepers anymore, just part of USA.

living in Toronto, i can see how the NDP are smart.. they have an ethinic person running from each country(china, sri lanka. india, the majority in my area), just to get the votes in from them.

Last year i listened to parents and voted NDP, Im voting Libs this term.

Im going ndp, they seem to be the least evil of the 3, i would vote green but i think a vote for ndp in my riding would help take out the conservative seat.

Yup. That's what I'm seeing. AND the NDP just took over Alberta after 44 years of Conservative rule. THAT has 2 meanings. 1- Alberta didn't like the continual drain on the middle class for the rich. 2- And they went NDP, not Liberal. I believe that gives legitimacy to the NDP.

I was in Brampton this week though and it looked REALLY red. Liberal. I know that's a small part of the Golden Horseshoe but if that is prevalent say Hi to PM Trudeau.

Canadian politics are hard to follow. I found this quiz that can help you find the party you may side for.
I guess i am a Liberal?
What party are you?
