    Bad news maybe, but it is the best choice we got.

    Is Joe Clark responsible for this?

    Harumph! Politics. What a joke!

    I’d like to hear why people a) don’t like the Liberals or b) why they like someone else more. I think we could have a pretty good discussion.

    Why I don’t like the Liberals? Remember the “No GST” promise? Big fat liars. Remember the declaration to preserve the tradtional definition of marriage? Oops, lied again. I like the New Conservative Party more because I feel that they are more fiscally responsible, or at the very least, not imbedded in power enough to exist only to keep power and pad their friends wallets, yet. I believe that although they may continue down the same slippery social policies path, they will do so more slowly, not plunging us into the moral decay the Liberals have, ie gay marriage. I believe the conservative party represents what I believe in more than the Liberals. I believe the Liberals’ tactics in the last several federal campaigns were fear-mongering, deceptive and misleading. I believe that the current and previous Liberal leaders are hypocrits in regards to their “supposed” religion, using it only as a photo op and vote getter. I think the Liberal pollsters are trying to prey on anti-Christian sentiment.

    I believe Stephan Harper is a more honourable figure than Paul Martin. I think Jack Laten is more true to his principals than Paul Martin. Those are some of the reasons I don’t like the Liberals and why I like someone else more.

    I’ve put some context on my comment here:

    I think it’s time for a change. No sophisticated reason; I just don’t think it’s healthy for one party to govern beyond two or three terms.

    From The Star:

    Even though the numbers might seem reassuring to those urging Prime Minister Paul Martin to call an election for June, the underlying attitudes that the poll reveals indicate trouble could be lurking for the Liberals…

    “There’s an awful lot of turbulence and instability,” Frank Graves, president of EKOS Research Associates said in an interview yesterday. “The fundamentals definitely look poorer for the Liberals than they did in 2000 and 1997. The public are clearly highly torn and ambivalent.”

    He pointed out that in those two elections, the Liberals lost support during the campaigns, and a comparable erosion in this election would be potentially fatal.

    “My view would be, like that of most Canadians, that if the government chooses to go now, they are likely to form a minority government,” he said. But he warned that support could slip. “The chances of their ending up in opposition are as good as their getting a majority.”
