Really, it's like a wish list:
- the end of the malignant Harper Regime
- disentangling ourselves from the rotting empire to the south
- prizing the corporate continentalists' and "free trade" cheerleaders' fingers from the levers of power
- ending the simplistic binary narrative that has, for decades, presented the Liberals and Conservatives as the only serious / realistic possibilities for governing the country
- a measurably significant uptick in civic engagement
- genuine possibility of meaningful democratic reform, including an end to the putrescent First Past The Post system
- ponies for everyone.
It's only because we've seen what that hopey-changey thing can turn into that I'm cautious. The owners, CEOs and aristocrats still have a lot of ways to manipulate us and a lot of shiny objects to distract us. It's in that light that I've been doing what I've doing on the Tweeter.

Are we really on the verge of a seismic shift in the Canadian political landscape? Damned if I know. It's a nice thought, though.
- Other parties have no right to govern, Harper says
- Another election meme: #progressivemajority
- Meme for the week: Harper – too dangerous to govern
- The Harper Machine's priorities
- Don't know who won the debates, but that's a short-term question
