Are Any Other Canadian BDW Gals Keeping Current on the Federal Politics These Days?

Stop wasting my money on this stuff!

My understanding of the reason for the Coalition is that with the continuing economic downturn, Harper and the Conservatives have refused to offer any kind of economic stimulus package and so they're an enormous enormous liability. Canada is actually the only major world power without an economic stimulus plan. This all of us here wide open to the recession. Harper's philosophy is that free markets will eventually take care of themselves and we'll all be fine if we just ride this out. I know the guy was educated as an economist and so he thinks he's the expery, but he's currently the only leader in the free world standing by this theory. Even worse, Harper has proposed to cut spending which would do away with or pair down essential services and supports that Canadians will need now more than ever.
While I agree completely with others here that Dion is not a good pick for Prime Minister, I don't think that what Harper and the Conservatives have been doing (or not doing as the case may be) necessarily represents the will of the people or Canadian values (I don't want my health care benefis reduced) or even what is being considered common sense by other world class economists and leaders. And right now I'm not sure that we have the time to wait another 4-6 months to see what happens...there was an expectation of the Conservatives to act to protect the country and they have and are continuing to fail to meet it. Even if all this does is put the focus on the urgent need for this than I can see that it has some value.
(I understand politics can be quite a hot button topic so please know it was not my intention to offend anyone at any point...I am always happy to respectfully agree to disagree on subjects like this)

Maybe they should suspend government for a month to allow everyone to cool off and get all the facts straight. I just don't want to see the attack ads.
This coalition agreement has already changed the face of Canadain politics, lets take and moment to understand fully what it means.
