socialism on the rise… May 3, 2011

What a fascinating development!  The Conservatives get a majority but the Liberals are decimated and the New Democrats become the loyal opposition.   It’s a whole new world out there.  I don’t even know what to say, but I’ll bet the Americans are a little nervous that the socialists got so much headway.  I look forward  to seeing what Jack can do with some power, though unfortunately not quite enough to balance the House and encourage lots of negotiation through coalition bargaining.

I like multi-party negotiations for ensuring the most fair policies for the largest number of Canadians.  As a result, I’m  not thrilled about this majority, and too be honest, based on what I heard I’m kind of surprised about it.  Oh well.  It is what it is.  Let’s hope that everyone governs with grace and consideration for the greatest number of citizens rather than any special interest groups.  Good luck Canada.
