kindergarten coup

funny. up until now, i was sure i lived in a democratic society. in a country where voting meant something; where the majority ruled, and where candidates who lacked the balls to state their true intentions were not allowed to rule.

that is, until now. it would seem the freedom we’ve so righteously professed in the past has bit us in the butt. our leaders, the ones who claimed to hold our best interests at heart, have torn up our ballots, tiptoed into back rooms and cast their own vote–three against one.

while harper celebrates his victory, three sore losers who hold no more respect for each other than they do for the current prime minister, are joining hands and, with white-stripped grins, promising to do right by a country they’ve already let down.

dion has been rejected by his own party; layton relies solely on the blame game, and duceppe represents just one of 10 provinces: yet they promise to solve our economic crisis while restoring national harmony. have they even considered the profound cost of this kindergarten coup?

up until now… i was proud to be Canadian. now, i’m just scared.

    this whole thing is really annoying. if they were to call an election now i would rip up my ballot. the greed is astounding, esp. at this dire economic time.
