I have nothing but swear words.
Okay, maybe I have a bit more than swear words. I have other choice words I can use to label Dean Del Mastro, like “hypocrite”, “delusional”, and possibly “mendacious”.
Here’s a link about the “thousands of calls” he placed himself. And about the “two lists”, they’re definitely doing targeting, and they’re moving people from one demographic group to another when they realize they’re not talking to someone sympathetic. Here’s an example.
57 ridings received misleading robo-calls, that we know of. That’s how badly they wanted this power to ramrod five years worth of Conservative policies into place — even if this election was 100% in the bag for them, THEY STILL CHEATED. And they’re yelling and screaming for the Libs and NDP to show their phone records while they themselves refuse to account for their own activities.
Harper and his government have evidently subverted democracy. Whether or not this swayed a single vote, it shows exactly what these people are capable of, and to exactly what depths they’ll stoop.
I have a co-worker who voted Conservative because he figured that way, things would get done. His sole reason for voting Conservative was to prevent the legislative deadlock that sometimes happens when you have a minority government and one side wants to do batshit-crazy things to the economic and social infrastructure, and the other says “no way”. He voted Tory because he wanted someone to exercise unilateral control of the government, unchecked, and he picked the guys who were willing to cheat to get power.
I sometimes grind my teeth in fury that someone could be willingly complicit, and I can’t even yell at them for it.
