The Lesser of Evils

August 28, 2008 at 5:33 pm 4 comments

The NDP are predicting the Tories will call an election any day and are soliciting donations.  I gave $25 even though their ante starts at $85 or something like that….but that’s not in my budget.   Anyways, I’m not sure why the other boys , Layton and Dion aren’t motioning for non confidence…..why have they been waiting for Steve to call the election?  Beats me save for some guesses about tax payers footing the bill for an election and maybe being peeved at the opposition for doing so.  I’m not that politically astute to know about this type of positioning.

But I do consider the NDP the lesser of evils.  Now if you don’t mind I have some coffee to drink and a van to clean 😀

    What little faith I had in the Liberals faded a bit more each time Dion had the time to challenge the Gov’t and risk an election. Each and every time, he backed down. They made a big mistake having Dion as a leader of a national party – he doesn’t have the charisma, courage, or cajones to take on the PCs. I’m more of an NDP supporter myself but sadly I don’t think they’ll have the numbers to make a difference and with the Liberals being led my Celine…I mean Stephane, they’ll probably end up losing even more seats. It’s a sad day for Canada, my friend.

    I’d wait for Steve to call the election, too. If he does, he’ll not only have wasted tax money on the current byelections, but he’ll also be breaking his own promise to only call an election every four years.

    Incidentally, I’m in one of the byelection ridings. If Steve makes me put up with twice as many election signs this year, so help me…

    karen….it’s just a plain bloody hard call. the greens are not a hopeful or protest vote anymore ever since the conservatives infiltrated them and even took over the leadership. celine (ha , gooder!) is not just wimp-boy, he’s old school liberal and there’s too many in his clique from the sponsorship days. layton gained big time last time but can he do it again??? ahhhhh!!!! i’ll bet my money on the ndp, even if it’s a losing proposition it didn’t go the way of the neocons or the oldboy libs.

    mark….oh ok, i didn’t know about steve’s 4 year election promise. my gawd, what if he doesn’t do this…..will the opposition really hold out that long!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    election signs….barf!

    Sis, you are right about the NDP being the least of all evils. That’s why I’m with them. Although Jack will likely never be PM, at least he does speak out on some of the important issues, even when they are not ‘popular’ according to pollsters. (Afghanistan, poverty, war resisters, etc) Jack is the only one who has the cojones. Too bad the electorate are mostly backward couch monkeys who don’t care a rats ass about the issues or the situation, or the sorry state our country is headed toward with neo-Cons/neo-Libs at the helm. Those parties are merely opposite sides of the same counterfeit coin. But the sheeple have been raised on MSM and don’t see this; don’t know any better and don’t care to learn… So the NDP at least provides a bit of opposition and balance in this foul stew. Just think how much worse things would be if we only had the 2 same-kind parties!! You’ve met Jack, exchanged correspondences with him, so you know what I mean…

    btw, you must have misread/misunderstood about NDP’s election donation ante: there is no $85. start. I know this. I’m so poor that I could only donate $15 toward the election campaign, and still give my little $5/month, which doesn’t even pay postage for 1 riding’s shortlist mailing. So I commend you for the $25 you sent in. I know your situation.

    If the NDP would get a few more seats, I’d be happy.

    (I’ll be really busy after the election call with having to work for 2 ridings candidates: mine and the one next door. Both are friends, both need help, both face candidates from the big 2 parties who have a lot of money to spend. we don’t, so we must work so much harder. If only the sheeple weren’t so dumb…)

    hugs, am/ob 😉
