100% agreement :smt045

Maybe, if the Liberals are lucky enough to get another minority the Party might do just that. They might be even more inclined if they lose this poorly thought-out election. We can certainly hope, while hoping the Cons don't get a majority.
The hard-right Cons on this board don't like anyone referencing the findings from the research
into conservative "thinking", but they sure do enjoy providing us with plenty of evidence for it.

Back in 2015 about 70% of voters wanted to turf Harper at all costs. It didn't matter what politicizes he had or anything. The relationship was over, and that was final, making it very hard for the Conservatives to get above 30%. Today, the Liberals face the same problem with something like 70% of the population wanting to fire Trudeau no matter what policies he has. The Liberals will be hard pressed to get more than 30%.

Politicians are like diapers... they need frequent changing, and for the same reason.

I don't understand your thinking. There is a current person in power right now has been caught lying and in scandals many times, it's a fact, yet here you are making the CPC leader ou to be a liar before even taking office? I'm all for good debate but this is just silly.

Why is it that Liberal supporters, as well as the other lefties, have so little concern about Canada's deficit and debt?
It will be hitting everyone hard in a very short time.

There will plenty of complaining about inflation and the cost of living, taxes increasing.
Those close to the poverty line will be hit the hardest. Loss of homes and vehicles, soup lines and a huge increase in social services.

And there is only one group of people to blame.

Yes we does, :D and as long as Erin continues to speak in an honest and direct manner, only incompetent reporters and Liberals will experience confusion or see duplicity.

O’Toole has said that he would ban assault weapons. He will. His commitment to repeal thoughtless Liberal legislation that banned many different types of firearms on nebulous grounds and replace it with clear legislation that does what is necessary while respecting the rights of gun owners is another good reason to vote for him.

Amazingly enough, these are the same people who claim liberals are better at managing the money and produce lower deficits. And when you point out Trudeau, they put their fingers in their ears and claim it was all the pandemic (even though the deficits started well before then). And of course, they put their fingers in their ears again when you point out that Harper also faced a financial crisis in 2009. These guys are so dishonest it makes me sick. No wonder they support Justin "The Ethics Violator" Trudeau.

My (2) issues with this election is:
1) it wasn’t necessary (jack :swear: jt isn’t able or willing to work with others)
2) the Party Leaders :swear: suck

Because of #1 I may go with anyone but a liberal candidate.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

In the Quebec debate Trudeau stated that if he only won a minority this time, he would consider another election 18 months later.
Sheesh. His ego is showing.

It seems Justin can't go a full 24 hours without stepping in another scandal. My only issue - get the clown JT out off the cottage!!

Why would anyone hope for that? Just to desperately try to defend a lame talking point about how "Conservativism is dying"?

Of course the Conservatives getting a majority is something we should hope for.

Anything else and we are just having endless election after election.

It is amazing, how one party never got that surplus until it was handed by the previous Liberals, ran 8 straight deficits, had multiple multiple scandals and corruption but somehow it's only the Liberals that stink..... [icon_lol2.gif]

The hypocrisy is off the charts here......
