11:14 am - Heading to the polls.
It's official!  Canada's heading to the polls on October 14th


I'd be a lot more enthused if there was actually a party that I can have even just the tiniest bit of hope in in the running, but alas, they all look like a bunch of squabblers once again, just like they did back in the 2006 elections.  It'll most likely be another Conservative or Liberal minority depending on how the wind blows that day. 

You know, I think Canadians should be thanking our lucky stars that our country's developed and stable enough so that even when all the politicians ever do is petty bickering and self-promoting the country still doesn't collapse (or at least...not yet anyway, we can hold out for a few more years).  If this kind of government was in charge in any other country that was any less stable or developed it'd be massive chaos with uprisings and rebellions, coup d'etats and assassinations by this point.

Well that's where you have all these constitutions and human rights crap coming in which is supposedly suppose to prevent the minority from getting squashed under the majority. It's a contradictory system really, which is kind of fun when you're debating because you can't lose since if you're in the majority you can pull the democracy argument on your opponent and if you're in the minority you can pull the minority rights must be protected argument. Of course, it also means your opponent can do the same, lol.
