MayDay 2011: 22% Control Our Fate

Posted on by 0 comment

In 2008, only 22% of eligible votes – roughly 5.1 million – voted for the Conservatives.

Total eligible voters in Canada in 2008:  22.9 million.  Of that number, here’s how the vote worked out:

  • Conservative votes:  5.1 million (22%) – by the way, NOT a majority of voters
  • Liberals:  3.6 million (16%)
  • NDP:  2.5 million (11%)
  • Bloc:  1.3 million (6%)
  • Green:  933,600 (4%)
  • Other:  157,000 (1%)
  • Absent:  9.3 million (41%)

How many of you know at least a dozen or so of the 5.1 million that voted for the Conservatives?  It doesn’t matter.  If you know any at all, it’s important that we clearly establish just how crooked the Stephen Harper government was and will continue to be if your friends and family members vote for the Conservatives again.

If they want a small-c conservative option, there are many.  Please refer to this post for details.

MayDay 2011: The Conservative’s New Clothes

Posted on by 1 comment

Stephen Harper offers nothing to Canadians in this election.

The Conservative platform is an empty vessel that run on the fumes of partisan politics, cynicism and alienation of the Canadian nation.

There’s nothing new and nothing that’s even close to regurgitated.

Scrapping the Gun Registry is a classic plot to pit voters against each other.  It shows a clear disdain for even the security establishment that the Conservatives pretend to sit behind and support.

Promising regressive changes to tax policy and other economic elements that benefit Canada’s upper class five years from now borders on criminal.

Is your gas tank that empty and you’re so over-committed to wasting money on things we don’t need that Conservatives can’t promise anything that might constitute a creative idea and that might benefit ALL Canadians today?

And where are the promises of openness and accountability that rang so true in the last election?

And today it seems you can’t even come out with ads that are different from the fear-mongering Tea Party turds in the US (with thanks to The Happy Wanderer):

Canadians:  Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada represent a nest of those who are in contempt of what the majority of Canadians stand for and believe in.  They will pretend that they are otherwise.

They are corrupt and conceited.  How can you promise to be accountable when you’re the text book definition of the opposite?

MayDay 2011: FREE KITTENS AND/OR PUPPIES*

Posted on by 0 comment

Yes, Canadians, you too can have FREE kittens and/or puppies*.  These will be the ones that we save from the evil Liberals and Socialists that eat cute animals for breakfast.

This will follow the Conservative Party of Canada’s current election promise to give tax breaks to families some time later in this decade.

In other words, when hell freezes over.

*To qualify, you must be a member of the Conservative Party of Canada, be white, be able to identify that you voted for the CPC in at least 3 of the last 4 elections, have at least 8 children (adopted kids are NOT acceptable), non-gay, have your own home, not be a senior, have family heritage in Canada that is at least 100 years old and recordable according to Archives Canada and must at all times wear blue.
