Politics Room?

So...Is this sub folder going to be renamed in the near future?
Since the election is over, Seems appropriate that this folder should be renamed.

Sounds like a good idea. People need a place to complain about the government.

"People need a place to complain about the government." Soon, Martin shall come before the press, and in true Nixon-like fashion, declare that they shall not have "Martin to kick around any more". We shall see.

Ha! People seem to love kicking around Harper just as much (if not more).

I respect Harper more than Mike Harris.

Harris did what he said he would do. The majority of Ontarians voted for him. Therefore, it wasn't Harris who did it to you. It was your neighbour, and your friends, and your boss...

This must be the grandest statement about the smallest quotient I have ever read.

No, this is unequivocally not true.

Harris never said he would misrepresent the deficit, he never said he would attack the poorest in society to make them even more destitute, he never said he would cut taxes for corporations to nil and so on.

But, yes, I agree with the part about the neighbours, etc., none of whom would admit to voting for Harris, and still don't.
