First up:

How long until Stephen Harper does something insanely stupid and loses his chances at power?

Remember the stuff he pulled last election. Remember this one?

The Conservatives retracted a news release issued Friday with a headline reading: "Paul Martin Supports Child Pornography?" and later changed it to "How Tough is Paul Martin on Child Pornography?"

The release which states, "Martin says he's against child pornography, but his voting record proves otherwise", was sent out to media at 15:40 EDT, and recalled an hour later.

Liberal Leader Paul Martin responded to the release saying, "This is a personal attack. I'm a father and a husband. This crossed the line and he should apologize."

He is already pushing gay marriage issues. I guess the guy just doesnt learn.

Feel the wrath of his heat vision.

LOL on the Harper're right, they just can't help themselves but be as outrageous as possible.

Hasn't he already made reference to same sex marriages as an opening gambit. Yea...that'll fly after all the controversy we've had to put up with for the last...ohh...20 years. Sheesh...put it to bed already. (pun intended)

At least the GST deduction sounds like a plausable platform to run with, so I'd give him a thumbs up on that one. The Libs and the NDP are scrambling to respond to it but don't sound so convincing. Especially when you remember the Red Book promises of the Liberals after the Mulroney defeat.

Anyways...God bless Mike Duffy for clarifying all the muddied waters.

Here's my bet...another toothless minority government led by the Liberals with an angry Conservative party disgusted by Canadian Apathy and a much reduced NDP eyeing support from Quebec.

Oh, the humanity!!!

I would bet liberal minority again, but there is one thing that could change the outcome either way.

Im willing to say there will be many people just plain not wanting to vote, and it may be enough to sway some areas.

Either way, its looking grim.

This election is just political masterbation imo. There will be little change once it's in the books. The Libs might lose some seats, the NDP might win some, so we're right back to where we were before this election.

Money spent, nothing gained, for you and me.

When Harper first came out I enjoyed him and his issues, now he's just a clown in a suit and tie. On the same token, I used to enjoy the conservative platform as well, but I think the liberals are going to win it again. They are progressive and they are open to change, when it comes to fiscal issues though they have alittle rougher time making changes, but I believe they will overcome.

If the conservatives get in power, health care and education are going to be in trouble... I look at the what mike harris did to ontario for those 8 years and like to compare their methods to the fed conservative party.. I dont think it's much different, as well when it comes to social issues/change, they are hesitant... Ive come to the conclusion that the conservative party needs to die... it should be the liberals vs libertarian party of canada, bloc, and ndp. i like ndp a little bit but i dont like the idea of how they think the government should do anything for you.. ive never been a true socialist, but rather a self governing type of individual who holds faith in her fellow man to take care of his/her own life.

i do place my bets on the liberal party though, theyve been in power for so long i truly think they have a better understanding of how its run, and they are willing to be flexible... then again this could just be drunk talk
