I've been sitting here biting my lip for quite some time now. I've tried to play nice. I've given it my all to be the patriotic soldier that cares not that his general is sending him up the hill to slaughter. But, I'm just not going to let it go anymore. Sorry. Can't do it.
In recent months, I've received email after email, joke after joke, phone call after phone call from both Liberals and Conservative friends alike asking me what this Liberal Party stands for. And, after months and months of deliberation, I've finally come to a conclusion.
NOT MUCH!!!! THAT'S WHAT!!!!
It's a joke anymore to watch our troops in action. Even the MSM is in total laugh mode at this stage.
The funny thing is, I know there's some damn smart people up near the top of the party so I question the motives behind our incessant stupidity at this point. I thought things would be different on the Hill with the likes of Warren Kinsella and Peter Donolo giving some adult supervision in the sandbox...and I still holdout hope that one day soon it will be, but....
First we abandoned all our principles in 2008 when we let Harper and his goons ram an immigration bill through as part of a budget bill. A bill that has allowed Jason Kenney and his crew the ability to pick and choose, in no specific order, who gets in and who doesn't. A bill that has been taking its toll on our ethnic supporters that are now kissing the asses of Conservatives to be heard for fear their families won't get into the country. Liberals let that happen. We, the great defenders of the immigrant.
Then we allowed this group of clowns to vote themselves in a $3 Billion dollar slush fund to prop up their own ridings with infrastructure projects. Paul Martin must have been vibrating out of his seat that day.
Then we begun to hang our own MPs out to dry. When star MP, Dr. Ruby Dhalla introduced a bill to reform immigrant old age pension benefits that has been years and years in the making, we forgot that we introduced the bill in a previous session. We shoot our own now in the Liberal Party I guess, 'cause we sent out her caucus ally, Judy Sgro to diss Dr. Dhalla's private member's bill.
Funny thing is, the party voted for the exact same bill when it was introduced by another Brampton MP by the name of Colleen Beaumier. That includes people like Judy Sgro who spoke in favour of the bill in committee!
But now, the party, more specifically the leader of the party, has abandoned the urban voter and female voter completely by letting his own MPs vote for the scrapping of the gun registry. A law that every single police force in the country wants to keep in place.
In memory of those women at l'ecole polytechnique that inspired that law in the first place and for all those women that live in fear of domestic violence, I ask the leader what on earth he is thinking. Specifically, why is he letting this ass Wayne Easter continue to make the rest of us Liberals look like morons when he goes on these political talk shows to make himself more important than the entire party by trying to explain why he voted to scrap the registry?
What's next? We're going to repeal same sex marriage?
We have abandoned every principal we ever stood for. And, if the only way we think we're going to climb in the polls is to attack the Conservatives on a pandemic that this country has never seen the likes of before called H1N1, then we better think again. People aren't friendly to those that use the dead and sick for political gain. Ask Lisa Raitt.
Where is this army of Liberals marching to? Where? I, for one, have no clue and I am certainly tired of shaking my head in disbelief.
