Well, well, well, so it begins. The election is now upon us and we will be hearing all sorts of promises and accusations. The Martin Liberals will be stating they are the only ones who can govern the nation presumably doing a better job then they have over the last 10. I thought this was an interesting quote:The visit kicked off Martin's bid to validate his prime ministership and win a fourth consecutive term for his scandal-plagued Liberals. Let us remember the main point this is a scandel plagued, no a scandel ridden government. We have witnessed scandel that is breathtaking in the size and scale. This is a government that has stolen our money to give their pals. Never ever ever forget it. They will claim to be the only ones who can run Canada and in one way they are correct, they are the only ones who can run Canada into the ground.
Here's what Paul says about his government:I am proud of our record," he said. "But I want to do much more, so I will be setting out a plan to do just that. What is he proud of? The fact our military is flying antiquated helicopters, that our submarines are good as long as they don't stay in the water long? How about our healthcare, that he cut billions from. Is he proud of the boondoogle that is the gun registry program, or the fact this government has used gallons of pepper spray against ordinary Canadians who were exercising their freedom of expression? How about the money that disappeared into Liberal friendly advertising firms? What about the fact that students face crippling debt after graduating from universities and colleges? Is he proud of the cynicism that Chretien has allowed to develop because of his corruption? Oh yes, before you forget, Mr Martin was the Finance Minister during the messy Chretien years. He knew what was going on. I found this little comment in the article The Liberals accused the "Alliance-Conservatives" of dragging out the sponsorship scandal for partisan purposes and of trying to keep the government from pursuing its agenda for change. Darn those opposition type who want to know the answer for the waste of money. You would think they should simply be quiet and understand that's the way you do things in Ottawa. Why what do they want, integrity?? Just remember that on June 28th, the Liberals want Adscam to go away so they keep the status quo which is your money and mine ending up, not in hospitals or housing or the military but in the pockets of their cronies. Remember that.
Who to vote for? In a word, Not the Liberals.
