MayDay 2011: The Last 24 Hours
I doubt I’ll be able to sleep tonight.
There’s still so much that I would love to expose about the lies Stephen Harper has been telling over the last 6 weeks (and decade or so as well), but I won’t. There are so many projections, ideas, concepts and so on that I’d love to explore, but I’ve run out of time … and energy.
As the last 24 hours tick down, I’d like to thank all of the readers that have put up with my rants and who have contributed to the blog over the course of the election (and prior to this as well as those who might even continue to hang on).
I also want to beg everyone that has the slightest desire to push Canada into a sustainable future to VOTE. Progressives outweigh conservatives in this country by a margin of at least 2 to 1, and it’s critical that you vote, vote strategically and vote early on because it’s going to be crowded!
Finally, I’d like to apologize to Stephen Harper for many direct and personal attacks and for insinuations that the Conservative Party of Canada is not a viable option in this election. But hey … as long as you remain the lying politician that you are and members of your cabinet and other MPs remain suspect in their dealings with Canadian funds and the trust of voters, I’ll keep it up and completely retract anything I’ve said if I’m proven wrong.
Until then, I’ll remind all readers why we’re having this election: YOU CAN’T BE TRUSTED.
In time, I’ll recover from this election and return to writing fiction and discussing my preferences, which are trashing mainstream media and crapping on poor economic policies that we take.
My expectation is that after tomorrow night, the latter will take a backseat because WE WILL WIN.
We will win this election.
We will win Canada back.
We will win the democracy and leadership that we expect from our politicians.
We will win back what we as citizens, taxpayers, children, grandparents, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts and all other relations deserve to win.
We will win our future.
We will win our internationally credibility.
We will win a clean and safe environment.
WE WILL WIN.
P.S. My prediction for the election outcome is that we will elect an NDP minority government that’s a coalition with the Liberal Party. My guess is that we’ll have about 110 NDP seats with 40 Liberal seats. The Conservatives will be left with about 120 seats, most of which will come from Ontario and Alberta. 30 or so seats will be up for grabs. The Bloc will be devastated, but might squeak out 15-20 seats.
As the fallout from the election sinks in, Gilles Duceppe, Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff will announce their retirement from their parties.
Elizabeth May will retire if she doesn’t win, but I am confident that the good people in Saanich-Gulf Islands will make the right decision for all of Canada and elect someone that will push for Proportional Representation and democratic reform in Canada.
