The solution is to just tune out.

The CFL has become important bread and circuses for the masses. Get all riled up about a game so that we don't pay as much attention to our corrupt and incompetent political masters. The NDP are hoping to benefit from the great season the Bombers are having and the return of the NHL. The Tories want to spy on our Internet traffic. Canada is among the most Internet connected countries in the world, but few are paying attention. There are some who follow important issues, as witnessed by discussions on the Sandbox, but most people are kept clueless by empty, meaningless distractions like Kardashian weddings, Mylie pot smoking and dancing on a stripper pole and now in MB, Swaggerville.

Pay less attention to what is less important and pay more attention to what is really important. Channel your anger accordingly. Goodbye NDP.

Manitobans should vent their anger towards the NDP and then vote accordingly.

Some of us are able to care about both the important and less than important issues.

Not to derail this thread, as much as I am not an NDP supporter, I don't see any viable reason to vote for the Provincial Cons either. They seem so focused on what the NDP did wrong that they bring nothing new to the table.

We need people to move along and try new ideas and bring something completely new to the table.

Yes, obviously, but not enough do so. How else can one explain the re-election of the Provincial NDP two elections in a row?

How can you not explain it... Seriously has the PC party made a real effort to get a majority in the legislature? Maybe this time they will, otherwise Manitobans aren't going to vote for them just for the sake of change. Offer a valid platform and the people will vote, look what happened on the federal side. The liberals completely imploded and the NDP filled the void.

If you speak with people who support them, the answer is a resounding Yes. If you speak with their detractors, the answer is No.

The Tory platform is being revealed bit by bit, now that we're close to election day. Judge for yourself if they have any new ideas or not. I think you'll see thay they do have a legitemate platform that could win them the election.

Yes. If you speak with their detractors, the answer is No.

Wouldn't that be what you would expect those groups to say? I don't identify with either group, and I don't feel that the PC's have tabled a platform that is worth my vote.
