    vote green, for a good alternative, for a green future.

    All the other parties are totally corrupt.

    Official Monster Raving Loony Party is the only choice for today's man on the go.

    All other parties are gay, and not in the totally legitimate lifestyle choice kind of way or in the happy carefree kind of way. Including the Rhino party

    It is proposed to raise the cost of an university education to the point where nobody can afford to go, thus ending the scourge of drunk students.
    If you want your kids to be less fat...feed em less (do we need to make a policy of this?....its common sense)
    Anyone allowing their Hyena to poop on the pavement should shovel it away immediately, As this is no laughing matter
    Make it illegal for super heroes to use their powers for evil.
    Refusing to sign up to the euro, but inviting the rest of Europe to join the £ pound
    Traffic cops "too stupid" for normal police work to be retrained as vicars
    The introduction of a 99p coin to "save on change"
    Banning semi-colons; no-one knows how to use them
    Banning vaccinations, to be replaced by nurses with shot guns to hide around playgro

    Looking at the various choices, what does PQ stand for?

    It usually stands for ignorance towards Quebec

    Like the belief that anyone pushing for sovereignty necessarily wants cessation or to divide Canada. As if Federalism is the only way to care about Canada and its people, etc.

    As if to be pro Canada, for First nations and Quebec is always t bow to Ottawa and let them make us more and more as North Americans

    It usually comes from the same belief that a centralized governement can solve every problems yet turning a blind eye to centralized corruption.

    Canada was meant to be a confederation, not a country with a centralized gov. that always grow bigger at the expense of the provinces. That's why the constitution wasn't ratified by Quebec and that's why Canada is still NOT a country like federalists wish it'd be.

    Basically it's called unfinished business both for Quebec and First Nations.
    Too bad federalists can't grasp the real notion of what is A NATION.

    WC... have fun with these polls, the real election that will count isn't a federal one.

    Poll choices edited to remove confusion. PQ replaced by "Bloc Québecois". PQ stands for "Parti Québecois" and is a PROVINCIAL party with no representation at the federal level. This coming election is a FEDERAL election so, putting PQ as a poll choice was irrelevant.

    There are a large number of foreigners reading MERB and confusing them isn't doing any good.

    How about PQ stands for ignorance about anything that isn't pur laine or unilingual French? What the hell do you think SOVEREIGNTY means? You get to run things the way you want but still suck money out of the rest of Canada? No, it means a separate and totally independant country with no political or financial ties to any other country. THAT is what it means, no matter how the SEPARATISTS want to spin it so that the poor uneducated folk out in the regions will continue to support it.

    And Quebec bows down to Canada? Really? All I ever see is Canada giving in to more and more demands that Quebec makes as long as it continues to hold the sword of separation over the Canadian throat. The Bloc is the finest example of this. First they said they would only exist for a short period and would never accept any Federal pension. That was how many years ago? And now they will, of course, gladly accept the Canadian pension as soon as they can get their hands on it. Now that's a great bunch of honest people you have there.

    Now the PQ brings up that they will put separation on the forefront of their program again. Great! Now we'll chase more business away from this city and Province. If those idiots were in charge of a company, it would have gone bankrupt decades ago. They've never been able to run a province properly and you want them to run a country?

    If there is ever another referendum, I'll be voting for separation. Once they have their own country, all the language laws go out the window because French will be the majority in the country and it will be against International law to impose laws that discriminate against a minority. Quebec separation would spell the beginning of the end for the French language in North America. As a minority in Canada, they have the right to protect the language and culture and that is the only hope for it's survival. Unless as was mentioned after the last referendum they lost, they suspend basic human rights as they thought would probably be required to maintain peace.

    You keep trying and wishing and hoping. If you get what you wish for, you may very well regret in the end.

    Pushing for sovereignty means pushing the federalist to deal nation to nation both with Quebec and First Nations.

    As to running a province properly, we ain't better or worse than all the others who aren't having oil as an excuse to poor management. As for running a country properly don't make me laugh ! Canada's still going in deficit despite having the Tarsands, despite all the ressources that we have all over the place. As for Canada's pension, there's enough federalist on the BS system in Quebec.

    As for the rest you clearly are showing the kind of ignorance towards, international laws and the so call right to protect the language and culture. As a federalist I would be a lot more concern if I were you into loosing all aspect of the Canadian culture in the years to come since there isn't much left. Quebec's culture is exported way much more in the world and it's not with any help or privilege from Ottawa.

    We do it, because we exist, because we are proud of it and because we have something to show other than 'American culture'.

    It's not about 'to keep and trying' ! its all about putting pressure on federalism !

    As an heir of both First and Quebec nation I can honestly tell you to put federalism where I think !

    Have fun

    Yeah, sure. In other words, use the thread of separation to blackmail the federal gov't to give more powers to Quebec. By the way, the First Nations are no friends of separatists and wish to remain part of Canada, not part of an independant Quebec and the Quebecois can call themselves a People or a Nation in that context but not in the political sense of the term. They want to be like an 18 year old who moves out from home but always has his family to bail him out when he spends all his money on beer drugs and girls and can't pay his rent. But if Quebec splits from Canada, that's it. No more money from the federal teet. The separatist leaders know that if Quebec splits from Canada, there will be hard times ahead here for decades to come. They don't give a shit because they have plenty of money to survive on but the average man in the street will be having trouble to put food on the table. Parizeau's "Lobsters in the pot". Unable to leave because they only speak French, trapped here with no options or choices. A captive unilingual work force.

    The brain drain from Quebec is already in a terrible state of affairs. The best and brightest graduates are bilingual or multilingual and can move anywhere. Do you actually think they will stay here? People want to live and they want to live well. They don't want to live in a place that dictates that even adults don't have the right to go to school in the language of their choice. Why would they stay here where they will have to struggle when they can move out and live a good life anywhere else they choose?

    Go ahead and waste your vote by giving it to the Bloc. I'm sure they will thank you by sharing their pension with the entire population of Quebec instead of keeping it for themselves. If you believe that, you deserve what you get. It's time to take a stand against this bullshit and declare Canada indivisible and kick the Bloc to the curb where they belong. You want a country, go for it and take it by force instead of by trick referendum questions. I wish you luck.

    It's the first time i've quoted an entire 'long' post, but the reason i did is that i agree with every single word Techman wrote. He tells it like it actually is....100%!!!!! Techman, even though we've had our disagreements at times, you've always continued to impress me & always had my attention whenever you posted something, whether i agreed with it or not. This may be your best post ever! Well done!! I couldn't have said it any better! You have a career in politics if you want one & you'd have my vote!
