I am so unbelievably disappointed with voters in the Province of Ontario…


VOTE!

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

This province is full of incredibly ignorant people who vote Liberal time and time again because they are afraid of the Conservatives. Afraid!  I don’t think they are afraid, but rather that they are too lazy to formulate their own opinions and come to the conclusion that the party that sits in the middle must be the best.

Pauses to apologize to any readers who voted Liberal – you are forgiven, after all you come here, so you must be closet conservatives, right?

Liberal politicians believe they are above the law.  They lie when making promises at election time, they cheat and accept donations from lobby groups and they steal from Canadians through advertising scandals and other shady arrangements.  Yet the Liberals know that Ontarians will vote to keep them in power.

Hate Mike Harris all you want, but he said he was going to do what he did, and he was elected on it, and he actually did it. He did NOT raise a red book claiming to get rid off the GST – but did not, he did not make his campaign platform around NOT raising taxes, but them DID raise them. At least the PC’s tell you up front where they will be cutting and where it will hurt the most, so no one should be surprised, but the Liberals???  See the sponsorship scandal, and Mike Colle the former Finance minister who gave $1 million dollars to a Cricket or Curling club as a grant when they asked for $150,000. He was fired from his post… and re-elected in my riding. Arrrgghhhh.

And there was only 50% participation in the election… That’s the media’s fault for always stating that the election was over before it had begun, according to my former University professor who taught us a course about Politics and the Mass Media.  When the press began to announce that the Liberals were going to get a majority government, many people chose not to vote.  Hey media, how about covering the facts, asking the tough questions and stop pretending to be Nostradamus.

As for the faith-based funding… Who really cared. All everyone wants in this day and age is equality. Either stop funding catholic schools or fund them all. I believe that if John Tory had come out and asked for Catholic schools to stop receiving funding he’d be hung from the highest cross, but instead he offered up equality through funding all faith-based schools and that backfired. Don’t we all just want equality? Anyone who thinks that by now funding Jewish, or Islamic or Chinese schools is going to make a bit of difference has to ask themselves if funding Catholic schools over the last 125 years has.  Why not make all education covered by taxes, but the extra part of the school day which is faith-based is paid for by the families.  That way everyone is on the same playing field and the Province is paying for all school equally.

I’m angry enough to run in the next election and start campaigning NOW.

I’ll be fine in 4 years.

I don’t want to hear any bitching or moaning from anyone who voted for the Liberals or who didn’t get off their asses to vote for the next 4 years. You lost your right to complain. To talk to your fearless (read: useless) leader.

    A lot cared? 50% voted. 4/10 people in our community are Jewish. Does that mean 1/10 voted for it who are not? I think those numbers tell a lot about what people in this area do when they vote. The look for the Liberal candidate and put an “X”. Dummies… all of them.

    Flower – I agree. Liberals are Baaaaaaaadd.

    LD – Smart riding. Dumb media and please don’t ever post that you agree with Naomi. LOL. Puts me in a tough position if others agree with her regarding politics. LOL.

    Wow! You should move to my riding as we elected a Conservative!!!
    I have to say though – I agree with Naomi – a lot of people cared about faith based funding. I do. The only reason I reconsidered my vote was when he took it off the table.
    I truly think that they should get rid of Catholic schools though. If someone ran on that platform they would get further.
    I agree about the 50% voting thing – it was because of the media. Shut up and tell people to vote. Don’t call it so early. The whole reason they are doing it is so that they can say “City TV/Global/CTV was the first to say Liberals won.”
    Who cares?
