The other side of a summer election

I have been ending recent posts with calls for a non-confidence vote. The imbecility of the Harpies is beyond the worst we could ever have imagined. So when the decision is based solely on the best interests of Canada a summer election is demanded. Triangulation and focus groups be damned. Fight the good fight. Bring down the government now so that Harper can't retire before the next election and can be defeated in the polls. The humiliation of a resounding defeat for Harper is the best way to force the troglodyte demographic back underground for a decade or so.

I have only one concern regarding a summer election. The key to victory is enhancing voter turnout. I addressed the Conservative strategy of suppressing the vote in this series. The key factor in the present situation is this post which highlights the pattern by which governments tend to change in Post WWII Canada. In short, minorities elected at the nadir of voter turnout tend to be replaced by majority governments on a wave of higher turnout.

A summer election may induce a low turnout. This is Harper's best chance since his crazies will come out regardless of the timing. So if we do the right thing and head into a summer election, we must do everything possible to enhance voter turnout. The campaign must inspire passion about the country and it's future. This is doable.

Perhaps not but at least this way he can't say he wasn't warned.

No, it's not doable, not at all.
To do that, we need to look to each other for help. We can better secure our own rights and freedoms if we support the rights and freedoms of others. We should try to be guided by the idea that ``if one of us is not free, then none of us is free''. And NO I do not see ANY party doing that, certainly not the neo-con Liberals. I will spoil my ballot or vote for the Marijuana party first.
