Looks like our northern neighbors are ready to give the boot to their once-beloved liberals in today's nationwide elections:
A Canadian electorate that appears to have tired of more than a decade of Liberal rule was heading to the polls on Monday, seemingly ready to hand a limited mandate to the Conservatives....
....Martin's government was toppled in November over kickbacks from government contracts but rather than spending most of his time on that issue, Harper methodically laid out a policy a day during a campaign that ended up dispelling some of the doubts voters had about him in 2004.

Think our Democrats will learn a lesson from this? NOT!
The New York Times adds in their liberal scare-mongering, of course:
Many Canadians have grown weary of the broken promises and corruption scandals under the Liberal Party and appeared willing to give Harper the benefit of doubt, despite fears the 46-year-old economist is too extreme in his views opposing abortion and gay marriage.
Don't forget: If you have a moral issue with same-sex marriage and wanton abortion, you are extreme! Added bonus: Lots of quotes from scared liberals on how Harper would "change" the country, but nothing from any Conservative Canadian voters...guess the Times cannot fathom their existance.
Now where will disgusted American lefties move to? And what about their Canadian bretheren?
Maybe they should consider that little "worker's paradise" isle off the coast of Florida they profess to love so much...
