That "news about Harper gaining ground" was just to soften us up so we will easier accept the results - despite the ELECTION FRAUD stories that will be coming out tomorrow, the day after the election. This is the way it is done. They will tinker with the ballots until Harper's numbers are sufficient, not much more than that.
After 6 years of mounting public disgust at the conservative movement in the USA, disgust over the massive amount of death and destruction they have wreaked across the globe since taking power in 2000, that disgust would surely turn voters away from the conservatives. People don't want more corporate power and Elite wealth, or wars, or global warming denials anymore.
The corporate-sided Elites need to find a way to get Canadians to believe election results that favour conservatives. They used mass media and poll results to show that is what might happen on election day 2006.
Its been a well-thought out propaganda campaign - it HAS to be, it is more important than the election campaigns. So far, Canadains are so trusting in our nation that we don't consider that our elections are wrought with fraud. Just all the other elections around the world are, not ours? Ha, thats wishfull thinking, but it serves the Elites who are demanding a conservative victory, even if just a minority government, with conservatives at the headtable.
Or maybe I am just a conspiracy wank, but I just cannot believe people would let the dogs back into the yard after they ate our children.
