Don't Forget To Vote! & the aftermath

so they tossed their own rule out the window as per usual.
so that makes it 1000 tossed tory rules and promises to 1 LIEberal tossed rule.. god man, cry me a river.

anyone can redo their own internal laws.. why not? they can... Cons like to do this not only on the inside, but the outside, too.

senate reform is one off the top of my head.. I could write a novel.

oh what about harper's fixed election date implementation which he threw out the window a week later when the polls suited him....

they tried to reform the senate but were blocked by the other parties. that will be rectified and that isnt a part of the con constitution as having a leadership convention in 6 months after a leader leaves/stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus is for the libs

what im getting at is they change their constitution on a whim, what good is it if it is never followed?

if harper didnt get a majority you can bet they would have went to a vote for a new leader as it was his 3rd election and he never brought them to the promised land of a majority

the problem with the libs is they stopped listening to the grassroots and never stood for anything and tried to stand for everything. end of story.

bob rae is more of the same, they need NEW blood, not the same old recycled baloney if they want to challenge again

Quite the statement..

WikiLeaks released hundreds of U.S. documents on Thursday, including those with comments about the Harper government's "about-face" on Senate appointments, remarks on the Liberals' "muted" response to the prorogation crisis and criticism of Canada's failure to enact copyright reform.

A leaked cable from December 2008 suggests that U.S. Embassy officials in Ottawa saw Stephen Harper's appointment of senators as "a major about-face for a PM and a party that long campaigned for an elected upper chamber. The cost of the eighteen new senators also conflicts with political messaging about the need for official belt tightening."

The cable goes on to say, however, that "Harper will not pay a real political price. The staunchest advocates of Senate reform are Conservatives in western Canada."

I agree.. The Tory propaganda machine will eat him alive..

dude, that is from 2008
he had a minority, how could he reform the senate??
so instead of reform it he did what any sane person would do...put ppl in who thought like him.

the top brass of the liberals have drank their own kool-aid and have rode the liberals right off a cliff and are still doing the same thing. you dont appoint the same old same old to renew your base, you ask the base what should be done. you may hate harper but he took the party from the basement to the penthouse. they have the best grassroots going and have zero problem gettting donations. the liberals should look into how he did it before they disappear completely

ps...layton is in for a rude awakening once they get back in session. his rookie mps will be eaten alive by the media and when he doesnt produce(which is pretty much a guarantee in a majority gov situation) for quebec they are going to slaughter him

because the appointments showed his about face, and how he could dominate the senate with plum jobs for his friends, and eventually take out the liberal majority there.. Just wishy washy and does not stack up to what he campaigned on. He will keep it there now, why should he get rid of it? he just parachuted 3 conservatives that lost their ridings in this election to the senate.. but that's another story.. talk about failing upwards... One guy actually dropped out of the senate to run this election, lost his riding then got his job back at the senate?? wtf?

agreed... But it's only a consequence of having a majority with someone who has a track record of not compromising.

the tory's dont have to do a thing
it was done a long time ago
The Rae days were smeared with the recession...

Con's propaganda machine.. it worked on Dion by making him look like a feeble dork, and with ignatieff because he's too smart apparently, and he's just strolling for a visit..

Just imagine what they can do to Rae.. omg...

dion was a feeble dork
might not of been while in office, 'but he came across as a dweeb that the LIBERALS also helped to foster as a dead in the water leader
the cons couldnt get better help
stop blaming anyone but the liberals, for fucks sake
they have ruined their own brand and did it by themselves and continue to do it
the dip shits are NOT a viable option, they got voted in because the greens give crazy a bad name

Nice tantrum there.

Sorry not everyone feels the Team Ford/Harper spirit as deeply as you or the rest of your cheer squad princess.

BBJ is right. Unless one donates money to the political party they voted for in the last election, they don't really support them. How would it be democracy any other way?

Exactly. If you can't afford to vote, you shouldn't have that right. I think the CPC should push to restrict voting rights to land owners who make donations to political parties.

you are on team complain because we didnt win, how much spirit do you have for a team that just got decimated?
you can complain all you want but the facts remain, your team is on its last legs unless it fixes how it is run.
calling me names and such just proves you are devoid of anything but reactionary baloney...good luck with that

you do realize the liberals lived off corp support and cretin changed all that to fuck over martin yes?
that ban was made off the advice of the privy council's position took after ADSCAM! (BBJ ADSCAM! wee!).. all that shit.. deteriorating public image.. and whatnot.

to say it was to deliberately fuckover martin.. just reinforces your sort of throw people under the bus con mentality when shit goes wrong.. doesn't happen on our side.

ahh.. how about that.. a PM that listens to advisory committee, not fire them all when they don't share your opinion..

adscam had NOTHING to do with it
it came BEFORE martin got power...it was done to hinder martins power to raise funds, you seriously cant be that stunned.

What little you know about politics could be written longhand on the side of a nickel, you make that picture clearer with every retarded cheerleader post you make.
