All that pseudo-democracy was starting to get to me! All those boring negotiations! I don't even care which party has the majority, so long as we can let them go to it for four or five years without any bothersome questions, or, god forbid, another election!
Seriously, I don't care what the policies are. I'm so fucking ignorant of the details of Canadian politics that I honestly believe that all the parties are the same.
A bunch of fucking crooks who don't keep their promises!
The above is what passes for "thought" amongst a large number of our fellow citizens.
Besides their lazy, sloppy, thinking about what democracy means, ... try to work through their central belief (fostered, of course, by capitalist public relations campaigns to infect these people with apathy which they themselves believe is a worldy-wise cynicism) that all the politicians are crooks who never keep their promises.
If they are, indeed, all "crooks" ... well, shouldn't we do something about that?
Think about it: To the nit-wits I'm channeling, elections in Canada are supposedly contests between the Sopranos, the Gottis, and the Coreleones. But none of these crime families will ever do anything seriously criminal if we give them executive and legislative power for four years, well, just because, ... um, ... well, truth be told, the empty-headed, lazy-assed chumps haven't really thought it through to its conclusions yet.
Something about the criminal-coddling courts not letting them, or something else that doesn't make a lick of sense.
Guess what people? The corporate elites have been testing our society's tolerance for criminality and authoritarian thuggishness for a few decades now. stephen harper's being rewarded with a majority in spite of his shitting on Canadian democracy is proof enough that, as a people, we'll put up with pretty much anything.
We're all going to go down the shitter, and the elites will be laughing as we bicker amongst ourselves while we spin around the bowl.
