So who supports the Liberals now? (Besides the party members themselves)

There's a bit of good news for those of us in Nova Scotia, the minority government should survive. The budget should pass, because it seems because we are not in the mood for another provincial election, and we seem to be doing quite well without one.

However some of you may feel about Ezra Levant, he puts forth a fairly convincing argument about the infestation of organized crime in the federal government. Even if most of what he says is true, it is proof, if any more is needed, that we need an entirely new regime, and to purge ourselves of the old.

The latest polls (can't find the link, sorry) seem to say that the Liberals are holding their own in Ontario and I think even here in Atlantic Canada, too. Maybe I spoke a little too soon when I wrote something to the effect (or maybe I just thought it) that they're the walking dead. For those of you who still support them, what do you think about all of these deals that Martin & Co. are making with the provinces? Is it a principled effort to try to get the federal budget passed (rolling my eyes as I write this) or a cynical, desperate attempt to cling to power at any cost? One thing's for sure, if you're going to vote in the inevitable election, make sure that you are not voting for another minority government!
