How do you think the liberals ended up with all those surpluses? Tax cuts? Martin gives one of the countries biggest tax cuts one year after demonizing harper about it during the 2004 campaign.

Besides gay marriage and scandals, what exactly have they done for us?
As far as I know, Martin did not vote for the war in Iraq. This is why Canada doesn't officially support the US efforts in Iraq- and why other countries like UK and spain are getting bombed. Don't you remember how there was a huge scandal on E-bay last year where US sellers wouldn't ship anything to Canada because we didn't support Iraq?? Harper would have supported it.

Also, regarding privatization of healthcare and social programs- sure, it's a bad idea, but it's not completely privatized- doctor visits are still free, and other stuff is still covered by insurance. Providing free healthcare is more of a politically correct feel good thing. Sort of how some places have 10 handicap parking spaces- it's correct and right, but in reality it's a waste because at most maybe 2 handicap cars would be there at any one time.

About gay marriages- **** that shit. Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. And I have no clue why gays would want to model their relationships on a straight convention.

Ok, not to start a fight or anything, but how does gay marriage affect anyone who is not gay? Its not like they're forcing YOU to marry a dude, why would it matter to you? And although it IS largely a matter of them wanting to solidify a relationship, there are also alot of financial benifits to married couples. Why should sexual preference be held against them?

If I still lived in Trinity Spadina, I'd vote Ianno also. He's a real good guy, I went down to him last year coz' my grandmother was having immigration problems and he helped her out. Even though I don't like his party, he's cool in my books.

Actually, Martin, who was campaigning against Chretien at the time, was 100% for sending troops in Iraq. Chretien put the kibosh on it. And yes, Harper did vote yes for Iraq as well, but at least he admits he was wrong. (Another interesting point, the next liberal leader wannabe, Ignatief, is also a strong Iraq supporter).

I'm all for charging user fees, but against any form of privatization.

While I agree, that issue wouldn't affect my vote. There's more important issues facing us than two guys getting married.

I honestly don't really follow politics. Is there a web site that I could go to and get an overview on each party so I can make an informed decision?

The only right decision is an informed decision

Good start here Nelson...I'm gonna follow this thread.
It was very enlightening to see the results! I agree with Rico, if you don't bother to vote - you've got no right to complain about anything political.

If you want to make a statement and not pick anyone, scratch your ballot. People around the world still fight, and die, for the right to a free vote. The least we can do is make the effort to get out and cast a ballot, even if it's just to scratch it. That's just my $0.02 though.

Everyone has some things they are conservative about and some things they are liberal about.

Im going conservative although I disagree with their abortion stance.

I figure, Liberals are crooks and every other party will not be able to get anything done... Conservatives FTW.
