Now that the evenings are cooler and the boats will soon be out of the water. And I've run out of positive things to say about the election to try to cheer us up. Here are a few final thoughts.
As you probably know I supported the idea of strategic voting, to compensate for the divided state of the centre-left. And try to stop the Cons from slithering up the middle like a contingent of slimy eels.
So how did that work out? Er......um......not so good.
And not just there but in quite a few other ridings too.
Now I can't be as angry as Canadian Cynic, because some of my best friends...actually ALL of them... are left-wing fools who would rather EAT their ballots than vote for another party. And I don't blame the Dippers for getting the distinct impression that when the
But that doesn't mean I'm not very disappointed. According to La Presse, the vote split cost the progressive side about twenty seats...which just happens to be the same number of seats the Cons gained.
But I have no regrets. I thought the movement for strategic voting was a brave attempt to make up for our divisions. And I want to thank all those who threw their hearts and souls into this non-partisan effort to save Canada from a Stephen Harper majority. The ones who put up websites like this one and this one ....and all the others. You were AWESOME. And at least we tried.
I also hope that one day it will be seen as the first faltering steps towards a united centre-left party that will crush the Cons and drive them from power FOREVER.
Which reminds me....since Great
And I love all my progressive brothers and sisters ....even when they're wrong. Because I know their hearts are in the right place.
And it's Saturday night and the left-wing fools are banging on my door. And I have to decide whether to give them shit. Or go DANCE with them.
What the heck eh?
Oh why oh why do we make it so hard for ourselves?
Have a great weekend everyone !!!!
