May 2nd approaches . With the Canadian Federal election and campaigns in full swing, it is not surprising to see the playground empty. It is not surprising to see, but difficult to understand why any leader of any honest political party would reasonably find it necessary to "limit" reporters to FOUR questions a day.
Four questions that are supposed to provide enough "answers" that will in turn somehow magically convince 34,000,000 election-exhausted Canadians that a Conservative majority is deserved after a problematic minority?
Would a majority Liberal government be any better?
Think about it. We're more than a bit skeptical.
Is the "Opposition" any better out on the campaign trail? You guess.
Here at Incoming Bytes, everyone is allowed to draw their own opinion at will, but the majority of election-savvy Canadians recognize that campaigns are artificial events designed to deceive. This is not just a policy to make an already tightly-scripted, memorized, highly-controlled plastic campaign more effective, but rather to guard the fort and keep the hidden agenda hidden more effectively, so please....the electorate does know better.
All Canadians know that such tools are official Party Muzzles for ANY politician that is almost guaranteed to make a mistake when tired, grab someone by the throat, stutter, stammer, stammer a horrible gaffe , blow a line, promise the sky, slobber all over the baby, say the wrong thing, stumble into enemy territory, insert both feet into the foaming mouth, ---and thereby throw the "perfect" political campaign off track, out into space, --or more likely, as we commonly observe, bury it up to the hips in the inevitable pile of crumpets out behind the horse barn.
Such are political campaigns, nice try, boys.... but they do NOTHING to answer REAL questions. Funny, the truth always comes out.
We have questions. Real ones. Not "approved" by the event organizer, changed to suit the campaign manager, or tweaked for an optimal photo op.
- Just who IS stealing the election here?
- Who tried to create a coalition in 2004 and is pretending otherwise?
- Who has the WORST attendance record in parliament?
- Does ANYONE deserve a majority?
- Which Political party has NOT been scandalized or corrupted in the last 40 years?
- Who has told the most blatant, willful lies?
- Who has made the most inflated promises, knowing full well they can not be kept?
- Who is buying the Canadian electorate with their own money?
- Why do we still have a Senate which does nothing but cost taxpayers more every year?
- Why are corrupt politicians allowed to collect fat Senate pensions?
- Why is a treasonous, regional separatist party allowed to sit in our House of Commons ?
- Why are Canadians subsidizing petroleum companies when consumers are being gouged and gasoline is over $6.00/ gallon?
- Why are we exporting oil to the U.S. of A. that has it's own GIGANTIC shale oil reserves?
- Why are Canadian taxpayers subsidizing the oil sands to export that same oil to the USA ?
- Why are Seniors in Canada forced to live below the poverty level?
- Why are Canadian troops still in Afghanistan?
- Why are we buying $150M per copy F35's with no engines?
- Why did we spend a BILLION dollars on the G-20 summit?
- Who is INTENT on gutting Canada's universal health care system-- perhaps the best health in the world?
- Why should Canadians possibly believe a "majority" would do any better, or more honest ?
- Why is "fear-mongering" being used instead of common sense and logic?
- Where are YOU taking OUR Canada??
Let's face it, in any political forum, four questions a day doesn't cut it,,,,,,period.
Let's cut the bull and call it what it really is, a canned, memorized campaign intended to numb the minds of the election-weary electorate so REAL issues will never be addressed.
Sadly, it is clear that Canadians have a right to be skeptical. Canadians have a right to a better, more responsible and more honest government.
Get out in the playground and provide some good, honest governance, that's what you're being PAID to do.
I know one thing; as a skeptical Canadian voter I have no intention to vote for "the dishonest".
That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
