Democracy in Action

Tonight the incumbent Conservative MP knocked on our door, looking for support.

After my mom ripped into her for removing support for a multi-faith charitable group that funds projects in Africa for a while, a friend and I brought up topics we take issue with, talking with her and two of her volunteers on the front lawn for almost an hour, wasting their campaigning time.

Then we went out for beers.

They can't really walk away from you, and repeatedly say things like, 'its important to see that young people are engaged in the political discourse.'

Watching them squirm when they don't have answers, spit out their talking points, repeat fallacies then thank you. It felt great.

Best part is, she gave us her business card and said, 'if you want to talk more, lets have coffee.' They probably do that thinking that you won't follow up on it. We're totally gonna follow up on it and waste more of their time.

Represent me!!!!

It might be advantageous to the anti-conservative cause.


I imagine a good orgasm is something a lot of these conservatives are lacking.

Hopefully this fall.

If the left (and any person who cares about more than short term business gains) can choose to galvanize on one party or the other, there are lots of good signs.

Its kinda bullshit that the campaign hasn't even started yet and she's out campaigning. Seems borderline illegal to me.

I can't imagine anything I could do that would be a greater argument for suicide than running for office. Having to be full of shit ALL THE TIME, kissing everyone's ass; shit would have me in an asylum inside a week. I think that the desire to be elected to any but the most local of offices has to be a symptom of mental illness.
