So the big political news is that we’ll be going to the polls in a short while. The Harper conservatives lost a non-confidence vote driven by the opposition parts.
I think this vote is meaningless. Polls show that conservatives will just win again, and I support them actually.
Who is voting for this non confidence thing?? Certainly not the Canadian people, I don’t think anyone wants another election (and that assumes most care right now about it, likely most don’t have political issues on the top of their list if at all)
And how many times do the Liberals, Bloc and NDP have to do this and subsequently lose the election before they realize infact canadians DO have some kind of faith in the conservatives? Isn’t this the 3rd time its happened, second at least and the polls aren’t changing, or haven’t significantly since last time around.
I think we as Canadians should send a message to the opposition parties and give a majority to conservatives just to teach them a lesson 😛 Sure, conservatives aren’t perfect but overall the country is in decent shape – better economically then any other country in the world they say. And which party can say they have any less corrupt track record that we would now want to vote them in?? The lesser of 2 (3 or 4) evils comes to mind.
No, personally I think Harper is doing a fine job. Sure, there are questionable things, but that happens with every government. I think that ‘Iggy’ guy should step down and they should get a leader on the liberal team that is personable, someone we can actually like, and then, and ONLY then it might tip the balance. For now though, the Liberals need to get it that Canadians are OK with how things are running now (I’ve not heard much other opinion on it that has stayed afloat).
I think this is a waste of taxpayers money and a waste of time debating, and campaigning… just let the guy work for a full term and then we’ll vote as per the regular schedule please! Thanks!
Also, how about the Liberals go talk to some people and actually find out if we all thing the situation is bad enough that we need another election now – methinks most would deem the current government adequate if not doing a decent job under the world circumstances.
I don’t often blog on politics, hardly ever really, but I’m on board with Harper. I wouldn’t mind seeing what he would do in a majority position. At least then, he could do some real damage and give us a good reason to go to the polls!
Am I crazy? Does anybody really not like Harper that much? Is there really any good reason to have elections AGAIN??
