Coaltion Dreams

March 25, 2011 @ 18:20

"For the first time in the history of the Commonwealth, a government has been defeated through a contempt of parliament non-confidence vote."

It sounds a lot more dramatic than it is. Truth is, it's really the only way Stephen Harper could run a government with three ya-hoos on his tail, and he did a pretty good job of it I might add.

The Liberals, NDP and Bloc took step one of forming a coalition government on May 2nd and we can only hope it comes back to bite them in the ass.

There's no other explanation for it. The Liberals trail the Conservatives by such a wide margin, their only hope is to narrow the gap over the next six weeks, hope the Conservatives end up with another minority and then form a coalition with Bullshit Jack and Traitor Duceppe.

And before I gone on I should address the obvious. Yes, back in 2004 Stephen Harper apparently attempted to put together a coalition with the same two assholes, and I'm not going to defend it. But there are two points to be made - number one it would have been wrong and I wouldn't have supported it, but more importantly, it didn't happen.

Make no mistake about it, this is what the Michael Ignatieff has up his sleeve. If you think Bullshit Jack is thirsty for power, Ignatieff is in the middle of the desert with nothing but the sweat off his balls in the canteen.

It should be an interesting election. The gloves are going to come off and I'm sure the Liberals and the other two useless parties with go full bore at the Conservative for this contempt of parliament nonsense.

Vastly more important will be the coaltion question. When asked, will Ignatieff or Layton admit that's what they're up to. if they say no, they could end up big liars. If they say yes, they'll end up big losers.

But that's cool because in the end it's all up to you and me to consider all angles and then make a decision. If you really think the government is going to be better off in the hands of a coalition then go for it. Vote for one of the clunkers and suffer the consequences.

Or you could appreciate the shape the country is in, overlook the over-played contempt thing and once for all put this country firmly in the hands of someone who knows what he's doing.

It's a free country, do what you think is best.

Meanwhile, in my riding, Liberal Rudy Dhalla will be asked to respectfully get off my property if she happens to knock on my door, and first thing Monday morning I will be ordering the largest Conservative sign possible to put on my front lawn.

That's what I think is best.

OMG, haven't laughed this hard in a while. So true, yet so blunt. I totally agree. I think you've missed the point though that this whole election is another COMPLETE waste of millions of dollars, which could be put to better use!
I as well will be ordering a HUGE Conservatives sign and I'll sit on the porch with a shotgun waiting for door knockers.

Could this be the start of the end as the Mayans predicted?

Call it a "coalition", or whatever you want, but... they had more votes than the 'ruling party' and that's what you get with a minority AND that's the way parliament is run on a confidence vote.

All Harper had to do was to make a deal with one other party (Liberal or NDP or Bloc) and he could have avoided this - but he's so arrogant he wouldn't do it --- so it's just as much his fault as anyone else.

I'm not an Iggy fan either - he's my MP, but I've never voted for him.

No Canadian political party will ever have a majority in the house again, unless the number of Bloc seats goes below 30.

Andy, arrogance, really! How about integrity, you obviously see nothing wrong with making a deal with the seperatist Bloc...........and you live in TO why?

Freddy, look at the bright side. The bill which would allow immigrant seniors to collect OAS after only being in this country for 3 years instead of the current 10 years just died. This bill of course was introduced by no other than Liberal Ruby Dhalla and it passed the first reading thanks to our beloved former NDP premier and now Liberal Bob Rae.

Do I need to say more?

aviatr63 - he could have made a deal with the NDP....

Bloc or not, Harper ran parliament as if he had a majority and he didn't. Harper doesn't know the meaning of the word cooperation, or negotiation and probably a lot of other words too.

aviatr63 - AND.... what do you call his perouging (sorry don't know the spelling) parliament TWICE.

I'm over 55 and I only ever remember this happen once before - never twice in the same parliament.

I'll grant you this, Harper may get more seats this time --- he may get more votes in the west for his sticking Toronto with the G20.
People outside Toronto just love to hate it, so... they all probably had a good laugh out of it.

Glad Ruby's pandering to the newbies family reunification bill gets tanked. Thanks Bob B for the update had forgot about this bill which is an absolute load of Horse stuff.

I am going to lobby every relative and friend to throw their vote behind the conservatives, Iggy today got pretty piZZed with the media asking him about forming a coalition government, cause he knows that it is the only way he could form the next government. I truly want to punish the Liberals for wasting $400 million of our hard earned tax dollars on this again. Put the money into the debt or programs instead of the Parties pockets.

Despite Thursday's Poll results (43% pop support for Consevatives), the likely result is going to be the same - so perhaps the better question we should all be asking is.... "Why couldn't the Liberals and NDP have just work cooperatively with the sitting Gov't?" Tolerate what is tolerable and get on with the business of running the country.....

I'm not going to throw this country to the dogs, not with everything that's going on in the world. It's not a time for Canadians to feel unrest. Conservatives all the way

Fred, you're on fire today!

I expect the resignations of Ignatieff and Layton (coalition or no coalition) the day after the election...

Here's what happens if there is a coalition

The government forms a coalition with Iggy at the helm. The deciding party is the Bloc. All decisions made by Iggy will be made to appease the Bloc Quebecois.

Then what happens?

There is an immediate and swift response from Western Canada. The 3 provinces (who just happen to generate most of the jobs and wealth) will start investigating their options in Confederation (or perhaps leaving it). This will bring about a level of cohesion across the West that will forever leave the Liberals in the political woods (Google and see the last time a Federal Liberal won a seat in say...Calgary).

With the Liberals alienating all the West (BC included) the Liberano's will be forced to appeal to the French and Ontario. To appeal to the French they'll be required to "buy votes" which will anger Southern Ontario. Ontario, now a broke, have not province, will watch Quebec receive copious amounts of money while Ontario's public infrastructure continues to rot. Support of the so called "Natural Governing Party" will began decaying in Ontario (just like the auto industry).

Without the economic injection of capital from the West to foot the bill of Quebec, Ontario will have to foot the bill. Suddenly, they'll experience what Alberta has experienced since 1961. They'll watch all their hard earned money get sent to Ottawa to be given to a bunch of lazy ass vagrants that do NOTHING for Confederation. Tempers will rise.

The result? The Liberals will self destruct & follow the path of the Federal PC's. A party of the past. A note in the history books.

The Conservatives are the only party that truly represents ALL regions of Canada. I'm not even a Harper fan but at least he understands that there is life beyond Southern Ontario.

Go Harper. For the sake of Canada. A coalition will end it.
