At The Black Gate!!

All through the blogsphere I've heard the faithful whimpering about how the Liberals are poised for a comeback of impossible proportions to win a slim minority in this election. I've done it myself a few times as well, but no more. Why are we buying into this? This is a sliver of doubt that the Liberals have put in our minds to stop us from fighting, to reflect,to get bitter, and to quit. Of course there is going to be an onslaught by the Liberals and MSM to try and portray the CPC and Harper as scary and dangerous, but I'm telling you, we shoudn't be buying it and we should be fighting back.

Stop defending, go on the offensive. Keep up the attacks on Tony Valeri, on Chris Axworthy, on every Liberal scandal, scam, and transgression. Call in to open line shows, write emails, talk to your contacts, and get the message out. We can't go to our happy place and pretend that there is nothing we can do precisly because this is the last stand for the Liberals. They have a paper arguement that just doesn't hold up. Go to Bourque and check out all of the polls released today:

SES Jan 17-19: CP 35.5% Lib 29% NDP 18.8% BQ 11.1% GP 5.6%
Ekos Jan 19: CP 37.4% Lib 27.3% NDP 20.8%, BQ 10.1%, GP 3.9%
Gregg Jan 17-18: CP 37% Lib 28% NDP 16% BQ 12% GP 7%
Leger Jan 12-17: CP 38% Lib 29% NDP 17% BQ 11%

and this from Kinsella talking with Darrel Bricker of Ipsos-Reid, the granddaddy of polling in Canada, today:

"Decided vote: Tory 38, Liberal 26, Dippers 19"

So that means, accept for SES who does the 1st and 2nd place methodology, as of last night the CPC are around 37-38% and the Libs are 27-29% and nothing has really changed in two weeks other than a few over exagerated polls in the CPC favour.
Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you "stand, Men of the West!"

"Men of the West"... is that Alberta, or BC, or just anyone west of Toronto?

OOOOOHH! I didn't know Aragorn was running! He's much sexier than Stephen Harper. Where do I vote for him?
