Victory pushes Canada to the right for the first time in nearly 13 years

Updated: 8:13 a.m. ET Jan. 24, 2006
CALGARY, Alberta - Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party won national elections Monday and ended 13 years of Liberal rule, giving Canada a leader who was expected to move the country to the right on social and economic issues and bolster ties with the United States.

Hmmm Would I live in North America or South America? Hmmmmm

(I would visit Brazil and for that matter Venezuela for their beautiful women but there is not a chance that I would live there.)

Give it time due we will see how the grand experiment toward the left goes.
When the new Prime Minister cuts the Free Health Care and pulls the plug on other Socialistic benefits the Cannucks (no offense to any Candian members, lol, I'm referring to backwards hick Canadians) enjoy, watch them jettison that sonofabitch.


It's easy to talk Conservative jive, but it's another thing to walk it. Most elements of Conservatism do not benefit the average person, thus the majority of people have nothing to gain from these new politics.

Uh-huh, and you have yet to outline how the Right would aid anyone.


Whatever.....pass the greens, please.

Just like a WHITE BOY!!!

All invested in some idiotic Right vs. Left BULLSHIT!!

Funny how you didn't read or heed the info. linked:
quote:
Bolivia is the poorest country in South America -- its GDP (or annual income) per person is only $2,800, as compared to $8,200 for the Latin American region and $42,000 in the United States.

...But nearly 20 years of these structural reforms -- or "neoliberalism" as Morales and most Latin Americans call it -- have brought little in the way of economic benefits to the average Bolivian. Amazingly, the country's per capita income is actually lower today than it was 25 years ago. And 63 percent of Bolivians live below the poverty line.

CON-Feed? Will you just spare us the suspense and just come right on out and tell us WHY YOU HATE YOURSELF SO MUCH??

I mean, looking at that information, it's clear that the Not-So-Damn-Grand Experiment Towards The Right (Right towards them Multinationalist, Imperialist hands) is all but over barring the patented, orchestrated coup or what-have-you.

I'll be glad when you get off your SELF-HATRED trip. I'm tired of you tripping all over your damn self. It's getting really old - you saying stuff that comes back to bite you square in the ass.

A Grand Experiment, huh? How about a Grand Statement...

I don't think that the election is as much about a major political shift as about kicking some corrupt pols out!
