My Second Politics Post

So, Canada has a new government. I'm really not into politics, but it was an interesting election.

Here is a picture of the new president prime minister, being even more creepy than he normally is by standing in front of a giant picture of his own creepy eyes. Creepy.

I don't disagree with everything the Conservatives stand for. Some of their platform seems perfectly reasonable. Maybe, in some areas, they'll be better for Canada than the Liberals or NDP or Green would be (to me, it seems way too simplistic to categorize a set of unrelated beliefs into "left" or "right"). However, there's one thing that keeps me from ever supporting them in any way: they're against gay marriage and abortion.

How can a group of people too old fashioned/religious/retarded to support gay marriage and abortion be expected to run a country? It boggles my mind that any individual could hold such views, but when the political party who rules the country has them, that's a huge problem.

Thus, I declare Canada completely ruined.



Thanks to my old friend Michael (no relation) for this comic.
