The list is mighty long... gulp. Guess the Libs were hoping most folks wouldn't remember... but this list is just too sweet.

The biggest factor will again be voter apathy at the poles.

I disagree Aizlynne...the greatest factor will be the liberal partisan media controlling what gets to the public so they can make an informed and spin-free decision.

It's to bad the media won't pick up on one of these lists. I'd like to see Martin's face if it went mainstream.

You People just don't get it, do you. The list is nothing compared to Harper's Conservative Social Agenda... Kimble Camble even says so. And, if the woman who was the last ever PC PM, and who lied about her law degree, says so... it's just got to be.

Oh C'mon DT, you can't honestly believe that can you? If the Cons sheet was half that long, MyBlahg would have a dedicated site for it.....

Hey Mac, there is a Libscam Wiki in the works you might like HERE is the link. I've offered my services to help research, why not lend a hand.....

Excellent Bill. It has been printed and will be dutifully spread every where I can stick a pin, including the Screech's butt, if I'm lucky.

Bill: You'd better be careful about the 199 Liberal Screw-ups. Junker and I have just uncovered some crap on the CPC that could scare a grave-digger. I, personally, am reevaluating my support for the CPC. I hate to do it, but I've posted our findings. It's only fair that people know the truth :(
