Okay kids, its been nice dreaming but let's get serious for a second here. Recent polling is suggesting that the NDP may in fact have a chance of forming a government after the votes get counted on May 2nd.
Have Canadians really thought things through on this? I don't think so. If the voters of this country were thinking clearly they'd realize what an unmitigated disaster a Jack Layton led government would be. C'mon now, you know I'm right. Think about it, if Jack's NDP were to form the government what would we have to look forward to:
- Canadians would get stuck with a massive deficit, not like the errrr....okay, wait.
- The NDP would waste tax payer money on dumb make work projects, like building fake lakes....shit, gimme a second.
- Alright, I've got one. Layton will raise taxes!!! Okay, maybe not your's and mine but he'll raise taxes on corporations like our banks and oil companies and that would be like really bad because those guys are used to making lots and lots of money.
- Now I'm rolling...Instead of giving money away to big business, Layton will get all comfy cozy with lazy wage earners. What kind of country will this be with Joe Lunchbucket and Sally Housecoat getting better treatment from their government than billion dollar business interests!!!
And if I haven't yet made a strong enough argument (and I do think I have) then consider this. Layton represents change, and change is bad. We need things to stay exactly as they are now, unmoving and completely still...like Stephen Harper's hair.
Oh, that reminds me, Jack is like bald...really bald. Tell him to get a piece, like a real leader.
