The Myth of the Single-Issue Party
A few Liberals seem to be getting a bad case of "swamp ass" with the way they're smearing the Green Party.
Some dig deep and claim it's a racist party because it tolerates legitimate criticism of Israel. Screw that. Most of the Jewish population of the United States voice the same criticisms.
Others dismiss it as a single-issue party or, worse, a rightwing single issue party. More Liberal swamp ass. Here's the party platform. Read it for yourself. I dare you because you might just find it's what you've been waiting for. Read it and then tell me how progressive your party is.
We're fed up with "Liberal-Tory, same old story." We're fed up with New Dems that talk a good game until they get a whiff of power.
You may have noticed that our world has changed and is continuing to change in ways that are threatening and challenging. We've seen how the Liberals rose to that occasion and we know the Conservatives will be even worse. They'll ruin Canada for future generations.
The Liberals remain a party of Bay Street, KPMG, SNC-Lavalin and their ilk. The Tories are nose deep in the backsides of the Calgary Petroleum Club and the oil lobby which are leaving an ecological catastrophe wherever they operate. This is old school politics straight down the ticket. It's getting to be more than the country can bear if we're to have a future. Dinosaurs too beholden to powerful special interests to serve the public interest.
There's a reason that Elizabeth May is the only federal leader with a positive popular opinion rating. There's a reason why the Liberal leader is deep, deep in the hole.
