Assuming this hasn't been brought up.

As some of us may know, we in Canada had an election today.

When I went in to vote for my very first time, I saw the option of the Marxist-Lenin Party?

I had no idea what the hell it was. My dad said they were communists, which sounds good enough to me.

Here in my town (Peterborough), this party got 54 votes, out of nearly 80,000 people.

What do you all think of them?

They weren't running in my riding.

edit - yes along with the Christian heritage party they are a waste of a ballot.
#4
Did you look up what they were? Or are you just considering them commies anyway? Is your dad a grumpy old guy who fled from the draft to Canada?
Soon you will sit on the bench

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

I'm surprised you didn't know they were communist. I too, had a surprise today; at the bottom of the ballot it said "Libertarian". I didn't even know we had any candidates like that.

It's quite reasonable to assume that a party with Marxist-Leninist idealogy would be communist.

they are one of two straight up communist parties.


they are just fringe parties though. You will never see much of them.


EDIT:

if you want a true waste of a ballot look up the NeoRhino party

they want to separate Quebec then join it with Cuba and make Cubec

Wait are you serious? Karl Marx was the guy who wrote The Communist Manifesto, and Vladimir Lenin was one of the leaders of the Russian Revolution.

I've heard the name but I'm not about to look either up (aside from the brief look I took at the wikis posted) and I haven't learned of either in History classes. So, excuse me.

Yeah communism is an economic idea...not a political one

Nah. Youre getting it confused with socialism.... socialism is only economic. Communism is government and economy.
#19
Yeah they're known not to get many votes.

**** HARPER, **** THE CONSERVATIVES.
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*

this is true. Dictatorship is the political one.
#22
It's the Communist Party of Canada. They don't run in every riding and most people who think along their lines vote NDP because of its stronger electoral base.
#23
They're actually separate from the Communist party, which is another party that we have, along with the Rhinoceros and Marijuana parties.

Oh, Canada! I like living here.

Oh boy, if only the Marijuana Party had some pull. They'd have my vote... oh yes.

But yeah, we have weird ass parties.
#25
I haven't really read much about their platform or anything, but I knew of them. I'd more likely vote NDP though.

There are all kinds of weird ones in the US too. Communist, neo Nazi, Fascist parties. Crazy.

Communism isn't crazy, I'd argue that capitalism is.

Lol, yeah I see what you mean. We jump to conclusions rather quickly. I'm not saying they're a bad party, but they aren't very well known. They must suck!

I'd rather vote for the conservatives than the useless commies. Even though I voted for the Liberal party, I still want a chief like Chretien or Trudeau were.

The "commies" are never gonna win, so, If you dislike the conservatives, wouldn't the Marxist-Leninist party be a better option?
