Reality is Setting in for Canada's Left

The left deserves to be governed by the right for four years just so the left can understand what goes on in the heads of the third of the country that is traditionally conservative.

The Liberals deserve to pay for their poor choice in leadership. This isnt bitterness. It is stating plain truth. Dion has been everything that his detractors predicted. AND MORE! Vote against the tide by voting against a candidate based on a very progressive vision of Quebec has caused the party to pay for their lack of foresight dearly.

The NDP have to pay for trying so hard to dethrone Harper, they gave him a 4 year carte blanche with the country.

Bloc voters deserve a Tory Majority for thinking that sovereignty was still a more important issue than everything else going on. These Ivory-tower BQuistes in Montreal dont understand that there are more important issues. They are out of touch, and deserve to be defeated.

Green voters had an option to pick a doofus PM who would get stuff done or vote for a fringe party and elect Harper for 4 years.

By having her best showing for the Greens Lizzie May only proves that the best thing the Greens can do to help the environment is to disband their party and join the Liberal Party of Canada and effect change from within.

The Tories suffered over a decade of futility while they were divided. If the left doesnt want to suffer the same fate, they better act together...

They have four years

People who vote for Harper deserve to lose the power of their vote. Harper does not believe in democracy or following election regulations. I think Harper called an election to avoid Election Canada passing judgement on the Conservative Party. With a majority Government Harper can change rules. And you will see the rules election loosened to such an extent future elections will be completely bought by large Oil corporations.

If you need evidence of this please see Harper's new election rules for the Wheat Board that take effect in August.

But I guess people who vote for Harper support this loss of democracy anyway.

I dont' think you'll feel the same way if Harper gets a majority and starts implementing the sorts of policies that will ruin the country. Yours is really a misguided view. Clearly Dion is not a great retail politician but that doesn't mean some of the principles guiding his platform aren't good ones.

Ignatieff or Rae wouldn't be in much of different situation. Rae's economic record rules him out for this election... and Ignatieff proved during his run for the Liberal leadership race that he was gaffe prone rookie who dripped with arrogance. There is something deeply wrong and broken with the Liberal party of Canada. Ask all those Liberal insiders, and anoyomous sources feeding the Jane Taber's of the world.

I am not going to vote for the Conservatives and I have made that abundantly clear.

I just will not cry and bemoan the 4 year majority because frankly, the lft enjoys it.

You can make your judgement with how dumb right wing people are, but face it there are twice as many left wing people and the right wing ones will get a majority

who are the dumb ones now...

From Peacekeepers to Ass-Kissers - thanks Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper wants Canada to be a mere producer of raw materials and a source of cheap oil and water for the US. Selling out Canada to the US continues to be the Conservative agenda.

Stephen Harper has his head so far up George Bush’s back passage that George could get a gig as the two-headed freak at a traveling sideshow.

..the Conservative Party is a lot like a box of chocolates, you’re never sure where the nuts are, sadly, the Liberal Party has no nuts…

Wow two "the sun will not rise if Harper wins" and a "Bush's poodle" post to get things started. It's people like you three that are the reason the Left is losing--the hyperbole is clearly discredited by the reality of the de facto majority government has had since 2006. It's one thing to say that he's got a bad policy agenda or that the Liberal agenda is superior, but this reductio ad absurdum that you folks keep pushing and pushing gets you absolutely nowhere.

Antonio, the other day I felt a twinge of sympathy for Dion. The impetus: Jason Cherniak has effectively thrown in the towel. When JC sees the writing on the wall, you know it's over. And it's sad because Dion is a good man that was put in an unwinnable position. Not because Harper is so much the better retail politician or tactically and strategically better-placed, but because we all knew that the trainwreck was coming and with it, the knives, and even now that it's upon us the reality still hasn't fully set in for some people. My disaffection with this Party came a few months before yours; I still hope that they soon pull it together but until they do I simply can't go back to supporting them.

personally, I must admit two things - as a right-winger:

1. I am stupid. that's why I am a right-winger.

2. I do not believe in democracy. I am perfectly happy to have Stephen Harper gut our democracy and impose a dictatorship on us.

What I did not expect, however, was that lefties would be so observant as to pick up on my stupidity and anti-democratic feelings.

Now Chucker you're running contrary to one of the more brilliant witticisms of Britain's greatest conservative, one Sir Winston Churchill, who had the famous adage, "If you're not a socialist in your twenties, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative in your forties, you have no brains." Clearly you're doing something right in Sir Winston's eyes.
