Who says Canadian politics are boring??

In one corner, Paul Martin: A Liberal who stole millions of dollars in taxes and gave it to his buddies.

In the other corner, Stephen Harper: A Conservative who's as close to Bush as a Canadian can get.

In the other corner, Jack Layton: Some NDP guy who looks like a squirrel but gets no attention

In the other corner, Gilles Duceppe: A Quebecer who wants to break up the country.

So, who would you pick? Rolling Eyes

Green Party. Or Rhino. Just to say I voted. THEN I have the right to complain. If you don't vote, shut up. Not.....you.....I'm just saying.

Well, I've always believed us non-voters had the most right to complain. As a non-voter for many decades, I was NOT the one responsible for supporting corrupt politicians and making them feel that we, the people, were satisfied with their job performances. So I not only criticized politicians, but also, the Americans who voted them in. To vote means "I believe I have a say, and that there's no corruption deciding for me."

My non-voting has always been an issue of protest and disapproval... not laziness or apathy.

I voted for Clinton and Kerry. That's enough. I'm done.

I should've said "many elections," not "many decades."

Well, Stev-o gets the nod...

Who knows, maybe he'll be alright. Plus, it's a minority government, so he can't go ahead and do anything totally irresponsible.

On a lighter not, I found it kind of funny that the day after the election, the Gazette asks its readers, quote: "Who is Stephen Harper, and where did he come from?" Laughing I know, I know, it's a cheap laugh.

I wasn't arguing with you Gendison... I fully understand, and agree that it takes votes and voices to change things. But here, in this country, there's this a strong, constant nagging to "vote for anyone, even if it's for the wrong person." I have always had a big problem with that sort of twisted reasoning. If one doesn't like, or trust a candidate, one shouldn't vote for that candidate. It's the only way politicians in this country will ever have a true picture of the feelings toward them.

Unfortunately, When one has a President such as the one we have now... it is more important to vote for any opponant, then to sit back and watch lives and futures riuned.

I didn't vote for Al Gore because I didn't trust him. But guess where I lived during that election?... in Florida.

oops!

No, I know you weren't arguing. You made a good point, which is why I didn't continue the tipic. I disagree, but can see why you look at it the way you do. I do agree that voting even for the wrong person is probably worse than not voting at all. That's why I think a ruined ballot is more of a statement than not voting.

If Howard Stern ran for president of the USA, I'd vote for him.

Voting always involves choosing the lesser of two or more evils. That never changes. The only person I've ever agreed with 100% is me.

So I stay home, which is my way of saying everybody should stay home, so everybody stays home, nobody votes, and we're governed by a military junta; or some people stay home, and everybody else picks your president; or you vote for Nader, and George W. Bush wins Florida; or we all go to the polls and vote for or against one of the top two contenders.

So, if I walk into a restaurant and they have nothing I like, I should still give them my money and eat there anyway, instead of just leaving?

If you walk into a restaurant and they don't have anything you like, you order EVERYTHING and then leave...thus ruining the ballot.

While you're thinking about that, think about this: You don't have to go into any restaurant and you don't have to stay in any you've walked into. But unless you plan to leave the country, you do have to live with your president, so you might as well add your vote to the total.

Good point. If you walk into the restaurant and they don't serve the food you want, the service sucks and the busboys give you lip, you can either walk out or sit down and eat the crap, possibly because it's cheap and the bathrooms are nice.....why would you stand in the restaurant and just bitch? They're gonna think your a mental patient.
