Open Letter To Liberals

Canada's "grand old party"... Hmmm...

We all know we'll be back. Maybe even soon. So, it pains us even more to see the useless snivelling and sniping we currently have going on... just days prior to our DSMs. To top it off, we have former Cretien and Martin supporters taking public shots at each other - just when we start to see a recovery in the polls, and a real chance we could be rid of Harper in the next election.

Why do you need to have press conferences where you attack other leadership hopefulls? Why do you feel the need to write books to support your arguments when taking the "high road" really means, shut up and let the next generation of leaders step up? Why does the biggest story of the day have to be a 16-year-old power struggle - mainly between the lackies of two decent men, when the Conservatives are busy cutting a BILLION DOLLARS of funding required by programs for the weak and voiceless... If you really got into politics to serve, then why not speak out about this travesty... The sooner you begin acting like concerned politicians the sooner someone may overlook your past indiscretions...

Jean Cretien led Canada through 3 great terms. Paul Martin had a chance to be PM too. We all enjoyed years of centrist government. Great. Stop living in a dream world. That last little wisp of success was 2004 - maybe even 2003 (since we stopped getting any good press). Time to start thinking about how we will defeat the Cons - over even maintain our seat totals. That's right folks... It's not just going to be "get coronated as leader, and the Cons will fall". We are going to need vision, character, and focus to beat Harper's Cons.

The next time you open your mouths, think clearly about the words that flow through them. If you can't find anything party-positive to say, then just shut up!

There is something you apparently do not understand. WE ARE THE NATURAL GOVERNING PARTY OF THIS NATION!! To vote against the Liberal Party is a sin and un-Canadian and when the Liberals are not in power the natural order is out of balance. Why are you worried? A horse's ass can be elected as the next leader of the Liberal Party and we will still be swept to power. WE ARE THE NATURAL GOVERNING PARTY OF THIS NATION!! - and don't you frigging forget that!!!

Well, done. Could not agree more.

Hi Decom. Thanks for the comment. My only fear is keeping a Conservative "horse's ass" (Harper,Klein,etc)as PM ... LOL...

I do agree with the "natural governing party" assertion... We do have a philosophy that agrees with that of a mostly moderate Canadian population.
