    The people of Canadia took time out yesterday from the world's obsession with the dead bin Laden to pull off a voters' rebellion at the polls and tossed liberals out of office in favor of Conservatives, who campaigned, in part, on providing more jobs for their economy without raising taxes.

    Sounds like they've finally done something right up there, eh?

    Let's see, the GOP/conservatives campaigned on creating jobs and not rasising taxes in 2010 and managed to win back the House. What's the first thing they focused on? They managed to change the definition of "rape".

    First of all, there is no such country as "Canadia." Second, they didn't "toss liberals out office." The conservatives were the ruling party and had won the last two elections.

    Canada's Conservatives Score Massive Election Win

    OTTAWA - Canada's Conservatives stormed to a decisive victory in Monday's federal election, winning 54 percent of the seats in Parliament and securing a stable four-year term in power after vowing to focus on the economy.

    The Conservatives grabbed 167 seats in Canada's Parliament, well above the 155 they needed to transform their minority government into a majority, according to provisional results. They won about 40 percent of the vote, beating expectations.

    The victory, a relief for Canadian financial markets, left support for the separatist Bloc Quebecois in tatters and the party's leader without a seat. Bloc Quebecois advocates independence for the province of Quebec.

    The Liberals, who have ruled Canada for more years than any other party, were reduced to a dismal third place showing with their worst ever seat haul.

    LOL Ya that must be it...

    You need to brush up a bit on how things work in Canadia. Specifically, the difference between a minority government vs. a majority government.
