He had his chance to lead and he has done a super duper piss poor job of it.
And I hate the Liberals almost as much, but not as much. They both screw the average Canadian over real smooth like, the only difference is that the Liberals sometimes get results!
That's why I am for either the NDP or some other party I may help create or be a part of that has similar ideals like mine.... until then, they'll do.
And if Layton becomes dept Prime Minister as they plan, then there will be some control on the Liberals and make sure they don't Carbon Tax our asses to the stone age..... and Layton isn't given enough power to cause any major concern or harm or anything to matter at this point, unless he Caesar's Dion. If anything, it'll give the rest of Canada a chance to see if the NDP actually do suck, or at least know what they are doing better then the other two dim wits everybody keeps putting us back into this stupid circle of idiocy.
And if they suck like the other two or three parties, then we change the government ourselves.
Win win situation in my books. And if it all goes to hell, then it'll go either way regardless, no matter if we stick with these idiot conservatives and Harper, or if we go with a collective of what the other 60 some odd % of the country voted for..... seems to make sense because either way we'll have to go through some hard times, but at least this way everything is democratic... and why they're going completely open in the media with what they are doing.
And that audio tape from what I heard had nothing sensible or worthwhile as any evidence towards anything. If they were planning on making a deal with the Bloc for this sort of thing before it happened, well that's just good sense of planning and knowing this sort of thing was going to happen to create this opportunity.
And let's not forget that our best pal Harper and his party goers did the exact same thing back when Martin was PM.
Yeah..... not to mention that recording is against the law and therefore illegal? I don't remember anybody else pulling such a pathetic attempt to fear monger the whole situation..... and a very poor audio of nothing that is really a big deal.....
It's called panic mode for the Conservatives. Yeah, they're smart fellas and know how to plan things out, but they like everyone else, are human, therefore get stupid once in a while and make silly decisions with bad consequences.
Yeah I know, sucks, but true.

They already had it in the news today as I ate, and they laid out their plans already, which follow along the same lines as the rest of the world who have a clue. Yes our economy is supposed to be "Better" then everybody elses, but that doesn't mean you don't do anything while you still see thousands of people losing jobs, more people heading to the food banks, less people buying?
If our economy is ok, then it won't be for very long..... something needs to be done.... frig, a long time ago, and the Harper Gang just delayed and delayed, and they are now planning to delay more by stopping the government until the new year to buy him some more time.
Which once again, shows he is not capable of dealing with issues and controlling the government, AKA: Not a leader. And 67 or 64 or whatever % of the rest of Canada doesn't think so either.
This is why people don't vote..... if this sort of government was the way things went, then you have more people actually being represented and things get done because they have a larger spectrum of what Canadians want, rather then one party telling everybody else how it's going to be.
And I will admit I am a bit concerned of our government suddenly becomes much like the US with just two parties, but if the current system isn't working, fix it.
It's not, therefore fix it. And the Gov Gen get's the final say either way. Maybe she'll just tell everyone to grow the hell up and get back to work, or get a good spank on the butt...... hmmmmm......
How can the coalition create more high paying jobs short of expanding the government 10 fold? The manufacturing sector is disappearing and those types of high paying jobs are likely gone for good.
All I have heard is that there will be a bailout of the auto manufacturers, which might help Ontario for a bit but what does that do for the western or eastern provinces?
Speaking from the Atlantic area, I say go for it. Get them all fixed up, because plenty of those parts they use come from here as well which would be included into the package.... a few companies like Michelin Tire in Pictou Country laid off a bunch i heard a few days ago, and a few places up in Cape Breton. And I know there was plenty of more.
It's not just Ontario that get's the help.
If it is, then damit, get me my torch and pitch fork.... we'be havin an ol' fashion Reee-volt..... yip yip yeeeeaaaahhhh!
