I wanna know

Why can't we vote to overthrow our government like the Canadians did yesterday? After all, it's not like we don't have enough evidence of their loss of morality, right?

But, when one looks closer at the real reason the Liberal Party was voted out, you can see that it's not because they had lost their “moral authority," it's that they have lost touch with the morals the Conservative, New Democratic and Bloc Quebecois parties agree with such as a liberal stance on gay marriage, open borders to immigrants and, here's the clincher, staying out of the U.S.'s War on Iraq.

Martin has had frosty relations with the White House, standing by the Liberal Party decision not to support the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He also declined to join in Washington's continental ballistic missile shield, infuriating the Bush administration, has been called weak on terrorism, and was vocal in his opposition of high U.S. tariffs on Canadian lumber.
Can you not help but wonder what the real reason behind this accusation of corruption really is? Did they vote out Martin because he really is bad for the Canadian government or is it because he's too liberal?

Canada's Conservatives, by contrast, are seen as much more receptive to improving relations with Washington, though a majority of Canadians opposed the war in Iraq and the policies of President Bush.
Yes, there was a scandal, Liberals were accused of receiving kickbacks; Martin was absolved of any wrongdoing, blah blah blah. Sometimes you can't help but wonder if people are set up in these situations so they can be found out later when it’s convenient.

I still wanna know how come we can't vote out our government like that. How come the Dem's, spineless as they are right now, can't tell all those religious moralists they aren't in touch with the way the world really works so they can't be a Senator/Representative anymore? Oh yeah, because that would be unpatriotic and cowardly. Right.
