alright, even though i'm in bc and my vote is pretty much worth as much as a raindrop in an ocean, i'm still going to vote. still this is my first time voting and i haven't really had the chance to see or hear about many issues of the parties.

so, i was hoping some of you who have been keeping track of things a bit better than me tell me anything i might need to know about any of the runners.

thank ya.

i still vote for social democracy. it's like communism lite! only 1/3 the calories of normal communism!

Chico I'm glad you are going to vote. There is too much voter apathy as it is.

I think the Liberals are running scared judging by the type of campaign they are running. Dalton McGuinty in Ontario has damaged the federal campaign (my opinion-at least in Ontario). I will never again vote NDP. Voting Green Party would be just a protest vote. Therefore even though I don't agree with everything that the Conservative Party stands for they are my best choice.

The conservatives, not only are they TAKING a womans rights to abort the pregnancy, and putting a halt on gay marriges and whatnot, they're just as bad as the Liberals when it comes to our absurd gas, hydro prices and ridiculous taxes.
If i could, i'd be voting NDP, the lesser of all evils. But i can't vote. original.gif

Sad really can you can't choose a party that you think will actually benefit you, only one that will harm your way of life less than the others.

Burnside, I really think that that is Liberal fear mongering.

Liberal fear mongering?
I have no idea what that means sadly. sad.gif But i do know they are against abortions and gay marriges. And i feel strongly that a woman should have the right to choose, and so should gay people. lol

sorry i was over on another thread giving my two cents about this issue, didn't see this one till now.
after the debate the other night, i am still part of that 27% of undecided voters.
harper and the conservatives scare me, mainly for the reasons burnsy talks about, going after the charter of rights with the "notwithstanding clause" as harper stated the other night he wouldn't rule out.
martin and the crooked liberals, we're never gonna see the money back from the sponsorship scandal, hrdc, and the gun registry,and no one is going to lose their job over it, loads of waste and no accountability. don't trust him and them anymore.
ndp, huh... i have voted there before but layton comes across as some slick lawyer type, still with the same social conscience platform, but i don't like him.
greenparty? never voted there before and i like what they stand for but they'll never get in.
so i will look at the candidates locally, and decide amongst them.
we're so tame in canada when it comes to the government doing wrong.
i lived in london, england for a few years, was there when the government brought out the poll tax, and watched as the nation rallied and protested in a way so the government backed down, wish i saw more of that in canada and then maybe we wouldn't have all the broken promises surfacing after the election is over.

I hate all the running parties.  I read the paper every morning and watch the news at night and I despise the running parties.  Luckly I can't vote yet so I don't have to decide which of these fools I want runing my homeland.  If I could vote.......Anarchy all the way!!!! thumbsup.gif

   If you still can't decide who to vote for vote for me!  Every vote for me saves a tree!  Becuase every vote I don't get I'll cut one down devil.gif !!!

lol i'm pretty sure the only way to get an anarchist party would be to overthrow the government...and the majority of people living in canada...

and i refuse to vote for the marijuana party under any circumstances. unless they actually came to my door and paid me money.

and also jenk, sorry, but my friend brad already demanded my vote to make him dictator. he told me if he can be hitler, i can be jesus so...sweet deal, eh? lol

i still vote for social democracy. it's like communism lite! only 1/3 the calories of normal communism!

I've been sick & missed the debate. Unfortunately no one candidate appears to be the type of leader Canada needs. I will never again vote Liberal unless Justin Trudeau takes the helm of the Liberals.
