Ennie, Meenie, Miney, Moe


A good friend writes in about the very real dilemma of voting in a wasteland:

Hi David,
As always I enjoy your blog and your occasional unscientific polls. I voted in the most recent one, my vote was for "nobody".
I understand your sympathy for our most recent prime minister, but I have to say that I still don't trust him. I still think that if he gets a majority we will see a brand new government agenda, and it will be a socially conservative, not a fiscally conservative one.
Having said all that, I am incredibly frustrated as a Vancouver Centre voter. These seem to be my choices:
- Hedy Fry - Liberal who has achieved nothing for my riding in almost 20 years of representing us.
- Lorne Mayencourt - Openly gay socred MLA who achieved nothing in all the years he represented us and who now wants to be a conservative MP! Has he ever noticed or has anyone ever pointed out to Lorne that the BC Libs/socreds and the Federal Conservatives HATE GAY PEOPLE? Its like he is suffering from the Stockholm syndrome. He is only in this for himself.
- The UBC socialist wingnut running for the NDP.
- The Green Party candidate who is still out on the streets begging for people to sign her nomination form.
Whom from this list would you vote for?
What would a poll for Vancouver Centre look like?
Best,
John

Maybe he "didn't notice", because that isn't objectively true. Maybe that's just your belief.

Yeah, and you need to post this reply as anonymous?

Just what I would expect from a bc liberal (socred) or a federal conservative (reform).

Reform/aberta conservatives/bc socreds/bc libs HATE GAY PEOPLE.

Look at their voting record over the last 20 years!

Bill Vander-zalm, Preston Manning, Stockwell Day, Gordon Campbell, Stephen Harper.

All right wing evangelical christians. Every single one a Card-Carrying-Member of the I HATE GAY PEOPLE party.

Yes, I believe it. And it is documentable fact as well.
