A confidence vote...

I sent this email to Stephen Harper, leader of the Canadian Conservative Party today...

=====

Sir,

I don't like your politics on a good day. I don't like that you think there is nothing wrong with supporting the lies of the American Government or of stripping the Constitutional rights of gays or women. And for what it's worth, as long as you're behind these ideals, I will never vote for anyone in your party.

Don't kid yourself, Mr. Harper, about what is going on right now. Yes, we're annoyed about the truth coming out during the Gomery Commission. Yes, we're annoyed to learn that the Liberal party was involved in the sponsorship scandal. But what you aren't aware of is that until you started whining that the Government needs to be thrown out over this, Quebec was never further from separation, and you have played right into Gilles Duceppe's hands.

Whatever you may think in your pointy little head, No, we are not behind you in this election call, you're behaving like a sore loser and you're simply going to waste a great deal of money better spent on improving this country, not on furthering your PM-wannabe agenda.

Furthermore, I can't for the life of me understand how you believe that you are going to garner the support of upset liberal supporters by crawling into bed with Gilles Duceppe. All you are helping do here in Quebec is earn the Bloq more seats. You're certainly not about to win them.

You're one sad, sorry excuse for a separatist.

=====

What?

I called him "Sir".

Me out.

Nice site! I will read it over and comment...but I do have one comment at the moment. Your 'email' to Harper.
One would think if you are so cynical of politics, you would have sent the same e-mail to all the parties ;)

Actually, Arabia, truth be told, I contemplated sending the email to all the other leaders. I decided against it.
I figure that they're paying interns to search out such things on the internet, let THEM work for their money.

Me out.

I see, I see. I remember watching the Trudeau Five Part Documentory a few years back. When being interviewed, I seem to recall him saying he 'considered' giving up the family fortune, at one point. But then decided against it. Correct me if I am wrong on this. Do I see a parallel here? ;)

Pepperfire said...

Parallel? Now I don't know about that. We're poor white trash. To us, a family fortune was meat on the table.

Me out.

Uh, Arabia ... the other parties weren't screaming for an election. Not even the Bloc were screaming for an election; they were merely willing participants in a situation which provided them with an opportunity to hold something over another party's head for use at a later date.

When you climb in bed with a scorpion, don't be surprised if you get stung. It's the nature of the scorpion. ;-)

The NDP saw an opportunity to leverage their power by having certain important matters they wished to have addressed (and added) to the government wishlist.

So, for Tina to have sent the email to Harper alone was appropriate chastisement.

But you already knew that, didn't you? ;-)

You're a smart cookie, Raven... btw... I really like the Scorpions. Friend of mine toured with them in the 80's.
