I feel gutted
Tuesday, January 24, 2006

So, I found out just how many Canadians are stupid; aprox. 36%.

And with that amount of people voting for the republi... I mean conservatives, we elected another presi... I mean prime minister last night.

Where this country will be lead, I have an idea. And the sense of dread that I have... I cannot put into words. I just know that I am terrified of what this means; what the conservatives have said that they will do.

Joe Clark said before he retired (paraphrase) "There's a reason why the new conservative party dropped the word progressive from its name."

Well, some people wanted change, ignored Mr. Clark, and got change. And I really don't think that they know what it means just yet. But, they'll find out soon enough. We will all find out soon enough.

The question is not if we're going to take some large steps backward. It's how many, and how often.

I feel gutted.

Thanks guys :)

It's been a week and I'm still...

At least it's not a conservative majority. This way, if Harper messes up, we can just call for a vote of non-confidence and have another election. Or, maybe he won't be able to pass a budget (which has happened before!), thus another election.

Anyway, we should start some sort of support group for those of us that need to know others of like mind exist. It's pretty damn lonely where I currently live.

I think you are feeling the same feeling that I felt the night that G.W. Bush was elected here in the states.

All I could think as I lay there trying to go to sleep, was that I and my children and all of my world and so many innocents just weren't safe anymore. I felt actual tangible fear.
I still feel it every day.

I am sorry your country has done this. And I hope they find out soon enough that it is a terrible mistake and that the good folks there can turn it around. I'm still waiting for that to happen here. I hope that day hurries for both of us.

Conservatives blow.

It HAD to be said.

I'm American, so trust me, I know.
