Since we all know how great Canada is... I just wanted to highlight how Canadians handle the electoral process and how much more pimp it is than the "system" that is used in the USA.

"After a scandal-filled second term for the New Democrat government, the BC Liberals won the 2001 election with the biggest landslide in BC history: 77 of 79 seats. Gordon Campbell became the seventh premier in ten years, and the first Liberal premier in almost 50 years."

That's provincial, but it works nearly the same on the Federal level too so its all good.

I'd also like to mention that we have something of a "Shotgun Wedding" when it comes to elections. As an example, the US election has been groaning along all year. Meanwhile our Federal election was called in early September and will be signed sealed and delivered on October 14!

Let's just face it, it's the Canadian way.

More than likely they would have a big party and pound down a few cold ones, eh?

From a former nearby neighbor of Windsor, Ontario.

The man's got it right - we don't piss around up here. Slam, Bam, get'her done! Rock on Canadiana! Whether we get'her done right or not is irrelevent - just railroad the people into a trump up election and we'll deal with fallout later. Oh, geez man, I need a beer...

Yea, you do get it done. But if you really followed a free market system, you'd see what an economic impact REAL elections can be! Don't you get it? Our election IS the economic stimulus package!
