Yes, but what evidence is there that the election was 'rigged'?

So far, it seems to be based on people not liking the results.

This aint Bush 04 in Ohio..

I'll just go ahead and let you know why Orange blew up in this thread too so you can stop embarassing yourself in multiple areas:

Not to lump, but I think it's rather obvious that Quebecers love their close-knit French culture. Jack Layton brought his campaign to Youtube and Facebook and it tracked IPs in major locations to provide a French political ad rather than English, and I really think they just eat that kind of stuff up; it plays with their loyalties when they are considerate of MODERN language barriers like that.

That being said, and it may be rather obvious by now if not only by my username, but I definitely voted Orange and I am not French at all . The NDP did extremely well in many parts of the country this election because of the social media swoop, or "The Obama Effect". The "internet generation" or "generation X" just got voting rights and it's hard to notice how much the cute little democratic bi-dictatorship screws us whilst taking our low-income cash when you have access to this information so readily all of the time via outlets like Twitter and Facebook. The older generation has more or less "accepted their fate" when it comes to politics, and the NDP attacked this from a completely different angle. He was talking about changing things that we currently don't like at all, and adding support systems where we actually need them. The last thing I heard Harper or Ignatieff talk about other than slandering someone else in his election campaign was trying to get on board with an independant drug corporation that is currently and, very literally, murdering 'socialist' Europe.

I didn't find Jack as caught up in the political slander and stone-throwing as the other two--and I say two because... well... who knew the Bloc and Green were in this election besides Vancouver Island. Jack had these things called "platforms" and he told me what they were; it's almost like we all payed him, and he's actually planning on doing something. I have also PERSONALLY expressed concern about things via Twitter and heard LAYTON HIMSELF bring them up in the HOC (and of course this was BEFORE they were the official opposition). This guy isn't playing the same bratty little "game" as the other two and it's clearly gained him some well-deserved respect in this election. He is the only one that makes me feel like there is a reason I have to listen to them go on with their tripe every YEAR AND A HALF. Seriously, who wrote this ridiculously expensive process? Oh right, a bunch of settlers who didn't know the value of money, advertising, and political ego... sure wish someone on the panel was saying that they are willing to CHANGE things.

I also want to point out how it looks to me like the Liberals kind of shot themselves in the foot over time and created a respectable bubble in the generation gap. Primary School cirriculum funding went through the roof because of the Libs during the time that the "internet generation" was there and as a result they learned a lot more about historical political endeavors, social studies, and even economics in more urban areas than "generation Y" or the baby boomers ever did that early. I strongly believe that with enough unbiased political education, it's really hard to vere anywhere but toward democratic pseudo-socialism at this point, and that is difficult to argue with, even regardless of how the leaders currently claiming to practice it are royally screwing practices of 'socialism' up at current.
