I think the conservaties should be renamed to the Regressives, and the NDP and Liberal should merge and be called the Progressives. Then we would actually accurate names.

I really don't like the conservative way of thinking. They are like libertarians economically, a political position I find defensible though I tend to err on the opposite end of the spectrum, but jarringly become intrusive when it comes to social liberty issues, usually from the pretense of working for "family values" or likely because of religious dogma. Its kind of sad that libertarians have pretty much no one to represent them. I guess they have to choose which is the most important to them, economical freedom or social freedom? Sorry bucko cant have both...

My riding doesn't have a Liberal candidate.

I don't think the Libs are taking this election seriously. More and more, I'm starting to see this election as Cons v. NDP

A challenger appears! The challenger is:
The internet?Huh??

yes apparently us canadians can vote for THE INTERNET now, because we have possibibly the worst service globally

note that this is not ACTUALLY a candidate, but it's a means of convincing major parties to adopt better internet laws.

It would be better if it was brought up to them before the election so we could base our votes accordingly. Voting for the internet seems like the worst solution to that problem.

Pretty disappointed right now! But it's nice to see the NDP blossomed into a legitimate party, even if it means all the "left" votes will be diffused between the two, and apparently Canadians are fucktarded when it comes to politics so there's not much of a chance of a coalition government in the near future.

Well this is pretty rough.

It's going to be a very difficult four years.. I just don't understand how Canadians could possibly have voted in a man who literally broke every possible rule in the book. Sad

This is how I feel right now. I'm surprised Harper got back in, and with a majority to boot, but at least the NDP really grew leaps and bounds.

I did. Strategically, no less.

Neoliberal/neoconservative rhetoric (which dominates the media) has, for the past 30 years, promised people that extreme right-wing fiscal policies might seem painful, but will ultimately help the economy and eventually lead to job creation. This almost never plays out in practice, but Harper controlled the message this election: only my party can save the economy. People's fear blinds them to anything else.

I'm drinking away the pain of this election.

/ My riding didn't change, incumbent NDP MP stayed in.

Guess what? 45% of Canadians didn't vote. That means, thanks to your sense of hopelessness, and those like you, roughly 20% (40% of 55%) of Canadians elected the Tories to a majority government.
