So it begins again

Well the opposition has brought the government down, considering the polling numbers and the coffers of the various parties I can't but help to think this is a dumb move on their part. I wonder if the leaders had much to do with it. Iggy must be getting tired of trying to save a party that loves to eat it's own and Layton's health is not great, I don't like the guy, but I hope his cancer stays in remission.
The CPC fundraising machine is already in full gear and they will outspend the others. You have to ask yourself, if a party can not organize it's supporters to support it, how can they run a country effectively?

There is a joy to living in a democratic society where governments come and go and we don't have to risk life and limb fighting them, like so many others are doing right now. I have many friends who have completely different political beliefs, we will fight each other fairly on the election battlefield and then continue to be friends afterwards. I respect all that take part in this process regardless of their party. Democracy is not so much about voting, but about tolerance of each other and other ideas. No party including the one you support should remain in power for to long, it will corrupt them eventually, the key is to always have a viable alternative available. The Liberals should have let their party crash and burn, then built a new party out of the ashes, instead they go into this battle creaking and groaning, sufferring the rot and stain from their recent past. The story of the Phoniex is so lost on them.
