This is a really depressing thing to read. It is about the most cynical (even for me) view of the Canadian voter you will read today. Seriously, all that was missing was the word "sheeple" and it could have come from a Blogging Tory, circa 2005. The thesis of the article posits that the people are stupid and easily manipulated and rather than even try to help them understand the lies they are being fed, it is "smarter" to let them suffer the consequences of their stupidity, so they will naturally fall into the waiting arms of the Liberal Party. I don't doubt for a second that is the "logic" behind his party's move to support the government, but I have never seen contempt for voters so baldly stated before in a Liberal blog. In fact, I haven't seen this much contempt for democracy since I read the "cave allegory". I thank this young man for his honesty. It is a refreshing change from the self-serving happy talk, I usually see on Liberal blogs.
An Oy Update: Wow, Liberals are really feeling their oats these days. They aren't even bothering to cover up their arrogance anymore. If you want to read what the Liberal Party stands for, read Adam Radwanski.
