The Canadian election...LOL!!! Oh, my (gasp! chuckle, snort!). I am Canadian, and I'm gettin' ready to sleep through this one. Wake me up when it's over.

Okay, I jest...but it is kinda funny, for the reasons Rick gave in his first post.

I would not in good conscience vote for any of the 5 conventional parties, except possibly the NDP, but I have little confidence in them, frankly, although I'm sure they have good intentions (as do the others, probably...from their own point of view).

The mainstream parties all belong to the Machine, and the Machine lives on the backs of the poor, and lobotomizes the middle class with consuner goods, the "news", and bad TV and radio shows.

The only parties I can consider voting for in good conscience are the Natural Law Party and the Green Party. They are so small that the Machine can't be bothered with them...and they won't win anything, but one of them will get my vote anyway.
