I voted Conservative and I think they are doing the best they can in this economy. All parties have had their share of scandals, coverups, etc, so why bash the Conservatives..who have lowered our taxes..not raised them like other parties in the past have done.
Every election time it is the same story..bash the ruling party because they did not give us handouts left and right.
If you want to be concerned about politiucs..talk about getting rid of McGuinty in Ontario..worst politician ever IMHO.
Thank you for commenting, Yvonne. I wasn't going to comment on any political discussions here raised by Ron but I've decided to be one your supporters. I do luv your take on the NDP Party! We all know how they won their seats, don't we? Gosh for example, I actually know for a fact a few areas in Quebec where NDP reps were falsely placed, yet had never been there nor had they seen any of their constiguents. Oh and they couldn't even speak French .... in a highly populated French area, no less... hmmm ain't that a strange one (lol)?? I don't suppose Cheena nor Ron wants to hear more about their wonderful NDP party but wait till the next election and you'll see why many Canadians fear their policies and refuse to vote for them. This is nothing new, has been going on for decades.
I bet Ron and Cheena are happy now that we've commented, Yvonne (ya think?) ..... oh and we do all know about Broadbent, now don't we? If you really believe all their promises, then let me tell you that we have some wonderful swampland in Fla for sale at a great price!!!!!
Hi Yvonne - I don't necessarily disagree with your post, but I do believe we have to start somewhere to change the system, b/c this one obviously doesn't work with these parties, for the reasons you've stated.
Answer 1. At this point, I am "ABC" - anything but CONs! They are the most destructive party EVER, and I truly fear for the future of my country. There are things I both like and dislike about each of the other parties; however IMO, priority #1 must be to rid ourselves of this current (ill-gotten majority) govt. With the almost daily scandals, and leaks, we are finding out more and more that the cons. are anything BUT what they promised to be.
Answer 2: IMO, all msm are biased one way or another - depending on 'who' owns them. That is a huge part of the problem as I see it..... They either don't report what we should be told about, or they report it with their political spin to it! For the most part, they are owned by huge corps. which = the 1%, and will only mostly report that news that is of benefit to them.
I get my real news from the internet - there are many independent news media - you just have to choose which ones you believe in and keep caught up with them. That at least is how I see it, and you?
Question-1: For clarification, are you an NDP supporter?
Question-2: Can the AP website and the bias Toronto Star be believed in their bias information?
In MY POV of the Political Parties of Canada— They all seem to be cut from the same bolt of cloth …
No Damn Power (NDP)
Hey cheena G.....good on you! mate............there's so much to talk about and connections to make and letters to write..it's gotta start some where..............I'm goin' easy for now.....apparently there is a site where Harper's shite is listed...there's been so many fiascoes
that I need to read up on....more later......I'll try to keep it limited to those 50+.......I hope that more people will weigh in, because this is definitely current and strikingly important to us 'older' folks....ie" if nothing is said then they think they have a green light......screw that!.....stay tuned....buenos dias!
Sorry, meant to leave a comment with this link - Harper is targeting ppl he thinks are 'too old' to have much fight left .. so he seems to think we are easy pickings! If I had voted for him (which i didn't) I'd be more enraged than I already am!
Keep me up dated . Thank You cheena G

Hi Dennis..haven't seen you in a while!
I am sick with cold/sinus thing right now and feel pretty crappy.
How are things with you?
Hi Ron..Thanks for polarizing things.. emotions seem to run high here for reasons that are beyond me. Folks typing away and getting high strung ove words reminds me of George Carlin. If typists get excited, what are they like in real life..waving sabers?
