No one is less of a fan of Harper than me. But to be fair it looks like we have another Trudeau prime ministry coming up.(yep I am calling this one early)
What baffles me is that theres a large portion of the United States that look at a guy blatantly lie to them and say "yeah that sounds like a great guy to vote for."
I hate to play this card, and I say it with much reluctance, but even a die-hard conservative has to have problems with the insane platform that Romney/Ryan run under and it brings into play the thoughts of race issues.
Obviously after the Bush debacle the US needed spin doctoring badly. Obama was the great face for that. Now they are getting ready, it seems, to elect someone who has less of a clue than Bush and his Vice-President nominee is even worse.
Here in Canada we voted in Harper again, which although idiotic is completely the fault of the other parties for having extremely weak candidates in the running.( I wasn't one of the "we" that voted him in, I helped out with the NDP campaign)
I've yet to read a good legitimate reason to vote in an extremist like Romney and I am baffled that so many people are just willing to throw there votes away on candidates that have little to no chance. Voting is something a lot of good men fought and died for and to see it wasted like this is disheartening.
