The Big Election! :0

Post by CluedoKid » Wed Dec 07, 2005 11:14 pm

Usually this is held in the summer when everyone is ready to vote. Unusually it is now held this time in Winter.

After being in the office for a long time, the Liberals are facing another election. Paul MArtin is our current PM and the question is is if he will be back in the office??? Or will he back out like a true Liberal? My veridict: Nimrod.


It would be worse if somehow Conservative leader Stephen Harper got to be PM! :evil: Canadians getting HArper as PM is like Americans voteing Bush. Its dangerous and they both would leave a bad taste in someones mouth. Seriously though, the first thing Harper would have on his agenda would be to ban gay marraige. An issue that shouldnt even be an issue. Nobody is asking him to be gay!!! :evil: Verdict: Nimrod covered in horsepuckey.

Sadly the New Democratic Party (NDP's) dosnt stand much of chance aganst Liberals and the Tories. Jack LAyton sounds very promising. Lucky our mayor of Toronto is NDP :D Verdict: IN my dreams!

Quebec has their own goverement the Quebecois Bloq Partie. Verdict: Bonne chance mon aimee :wink:


The Green Party sounds good if they actually had a good chance of winning

Verdict: When the sun revolves around the earth is when The Greens are in the House of Commons!

Can you think of anyone who's a conservative here? Perhaps a right wing one?
My guess is Jay Beeskow

I edited it, I shouldn't have said it, I was in a bad mood, and you were right, though.

I am against everyone who is against gay equality. Gays are the new left-handed.

Conservatives

Post by Lord Caspen » Wed Jan 11, 2006 3:54 pm

Cluedokid,

Conservative thinking, like liberal thinking, reflects a broad range of attitudes on a wide array of issues.

My ideological problems with each side are as follow:

Liberal ideology tends to the belief that anything I have can be seized at any time for the benefit of someone else -- we see this in the notion of eminent domain and a constant slew of public dole programs whereby taxes are levied to pay for someone else's livelihood. Are such programs feasible? Certainly so, in the short term, but the long-term viability is more nebulous -- instance Social Security and Medicare. Are they necessary? Unproved, since un-socialized capitalism never had enough time to whittle out abuses on its own. Are they humane? Questionable, considering this is a question, at least in part, of people living on what they haven't earned, and are thereby forced into a position of survival by degradation. The abandon of principle to survive is reasonable only short of the point where a person no longer lives by his own labor, because then he comes to believe he cannot live by his own labor. Certainly this is not a universal principle, in that there are many people who have, by labor, benefited from the step up, what is sometimes referred to as "levelling the playing field." Also, all other things equal, we should certainly be poorer in some technological, medical, social, cultural, or even fiscal ways were it not for public programs like education assistance, but are these benefits necessarily outweighed by what might have been accomplished by other persons were everyone's economy unhampered by invasive government? None can say. Such redistribution necessarily hinders some, to the benefit of others -- there are some public benefits, but it is impossible to say these same could not have been achieved under purer capitalism.


On the other hand, conservatives, at least in the U.S., tend to want to give big businesses big blank checks to do with natural resources and the sanctity of nature as they wish to turn a profit -- in the interest of private property -- and then to turn around and deny what they call sodomy and all drug use -- on the notion that they know what's best for us. Pure hypocrisy aside, each facet presents problems in of itself. While it is arguable that, in time, irresponsible companies would be weeded out by a thoughtful consuming public, there is nothing at all to suggest that our water tables, air, and ground would not all be thoroughly toxic before consumer dollars made that kind of impact. Religious freedom is fine, but the same laws which should protect your right to call me a heathen and sodomite should protect me to be just that and take pride in same.
It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit. -- Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward.
