41 Reasons in this 41st Election to vote ABC

My last political post before the election cutoff.  Here's the sum up the current government's ethics (or lack of them).  Basically, reasons not to vote for Harper.  Thanks to all who checked out this resource and shared it with others - there were over 40,000 views and a ton of tweets on this site in just a few weeks.

No. 42: Harper Can't Stop Lying - Even About What He Did Last MONTH

In an interview just days before the election, Stephen Harper says: "I cannot go around the country telling people I'm the best guy to have a beer with.  That's the other guy."

Which leads one to wonder - when did Jack Layton ever say that?  The answer is, he didn't.


Which also leads one to wonder - hey, didn't Stephen Harper also go out on the campaign trail this election and share some pints?  Yes, he did. On March 31st he visited both the Alexander Keith's Brewery and the Red Stag Tavern in Halifax, both photo ops to show him serving and drinking beer with the common folk. 


This man can't stop lying!
