The good thing is that regardless of which party gets in it will be a minority government thereby minimizing the damage that they can do.

Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry. Never gonna say goodbye. Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

Usually I know exactly who I want to win, but this one... I just don't know.  It's the first Federal election that I have been of age to vote in, and I don't know.  They all seem lousy.  I agree with the statement that it's not about the best Prime Minister, but the one that will do the least amount of damage.  I hate you, Dalton.

Let's rock this joint!

Hmmm, Im gonna vote the Conservitavies. Hands down, they are the best party.
I really dont like left-wingers, their economic policies are far to utopian, and they would just rack up the debt, faster than anything else. The liberals are corrupt as hell, and the NDP, well, hahaha, I have a story about those. There was a bit of a uproar here in alberta, one of the NDP canidates, my former English 30 teacher Mr.Malcolm Azania, posted some stuff about jews on forums, 10 years ago!!! It was all over the front page news, u guys hear about it!!!!????
Thanks my english teacher!!!!! w00t.gif
Hahaha, hes a pretty cool guy, but man, those socialist ideologies will never work.

Im curious, why do people think the conservitaves should not get in???

Oh, and just so you know, Im against gay marriages,('marriage' is a man-woman thing) and also against abortion! Womans rights, bah, what about the babys rights!!!???Theyre humans too, just smaller!!!!!

Yea, I hope the conservatives win, and by the looks of things, I think their going too. grin2.gif

     Ya know what I really want to see?  The end of *note: this part of this post has been cut out becuase it consists of 10 pages of words that could be harmful to younger readers* Corperate sponserships to political parties.  It sickens me when I even think about it.  Parties get funds from a company who later will seek a profit from their investment and the parties almost always pay up hoping for more funds in the next elections!  With corperate sponserships our democracy is in truth ruled by companies.  You vote for which *not: this part of this post has been cut out becuase it consists of 30 pages of words that could be harmful to younger readers* partie you want deciding what companys should rule your country (I'm exagerating I know).  Parties should not even need these funds, Canadians should read the paper and watch the news to decide what parties will work best for them,  Do I really want my future government selling it's self to a company inorder to out some more billboards up to change my mind in their favour!?

Hey did anybody hear this?

In order to decrease voter apathy,the federal government institued a new method, every vote contributes  1.75 dollars to the party you vote for. w00t.gif

QUOTE
But thanks to Jean Chretien unions and corporations can no longer make large political donations. From now on all political parties will be funded on the basis of how many people voted for them in the last election using tax dollars. Your vote is now worth exactly $1.75. Whoever gets your vote, gets that money.

Even a few hundred votes rack up $$ pretty quick.
Now theres good reason to vote. original.gif thumbsup.gif

I can't vote, but the girl went out and voted for the Conservatives.

Why?
Well, NDP are the only GOOD choice, but it's kinda like wasting a vote since NDP wont win. So, it's all for the conservatives just to get the damned corrupt money grubbing liberals out of office, and while the conservatives have some bad policies, i'm totally for them over the liberals. original.gif

Here is a link that's tracking in real time http://www.thestar.com/fedelection/fed_elxn_2004.html

Oh crud! Looks like the Liberals are leading. My only consolation is it will be a minority government.

As a side note: I noticed today a lot of people didn't vote for the candidate that they wanted, but rather voted to keep other candidates out.

It's been confirmed, Canadians woke up to a minority Liberal government mellow.gif I believe only 62% of eligible voters exercised their franchise. How pathetic.

37% of people voted in England, 30% voted for Labour which means just 11.1% of people eligible to vote in England voted for Blair and his party - THIS IS YOUR DEMOCRACY IN ACTION!
