Canada! You Cunt! (apologies to nailbat)

"OK guys! The Conservatives did not react well enough to the financial crisis! So we're going to react by calling yet another no confidence vote, after which we're all sure to sit around and fight over table scraps like the Liberals of old!"

What I don't understand is why they're going after the Tories: "They did nothing". Um... that's the bedrock principle of conservatism! Let the markets fix themselves! I hate the Tory government, and their seeming inability to grasp anything that individual Canadians need or desire, and believe the only reason they're still in office is because of one scandal, but this is the one area where I feel a little conservatism is the proper way to go.

I'm afraid of the Liberals overreacting and creating more problems down the road.

What happens when this one fails? "We're gonna do it again until we get it right!"? And trusting the Bloc Quebecois to tie their own shoes, let alone help the Liberals... yeah.

They could have at least waited a year.

It's honestly even a bit worse in political circles than what is being put online. There is political from right within the Conservative party now because they have lost confidence in Harper. He is getting flak from within his own party from what he pulled, and it's not just from the backbenchers who don't matter.

If the conservatives can't pull a hail mary, I am not seeing Harper having a sure shot at staying leader. He may have to fight for his position.

So basically, this whole affair is going to simultaneously weaken every single party in Canada. I am not sure how that is logistically possible, but there ain't nobody coming out of this smelling like sunshine.

Canadians from all across the political spectrum are uniting. We're pissed. :')
