Shady Business

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and I ain't talking about Jeru.

So today is provincial election day. As I'm leaving home this morning I discover two of a certain political candidates' signs on my front lawn. OK it was the Conservatives. What the hell? They weren't there last night and I certainly didn't give them permission to put them there. Isn't their some law against that crap?

I mean at least the Liberals had the decency to call me up a week ago and ask for permission to put up signs on my lawn. I politely declined their requests but these other dudes how dare they! Which of you jackasses thought why don't we just randomly put our signs on someone's lawn without asking for their permission? They did it all up and down my street too. Unsolicited signs? Really. Did they think that would influence the owners of these properties to vote for them? If anything this probably pissed off everyone in the neighborhood and lost some potential votes cause the party's not even in power yet and already they're ignoring the wishes of the common man and trampling on his rights.

Ah he's just a common citizen, joe public, lets just put signs all over his lawn without his permission, why should we care what he thinks. Yea that bodes well for my voting you into power! Aren't you the same dudes who are always pushing your tough on crime stance with the public? Yet here you are committing a crime by putting these signs on my property without my permission.

Like I said in the previous election post, y'all need new strategists. No wonder you lost the election.

I hope you can ask for some perks if they win. And if they refuse, simply publicize the whole "trespassing" thing.

wow. well, if they're resorting to that kind of chicanery, it's a sign of desperation (pun intended).

i suppose the logic is that if others see lots of conservative support in the neighborhood, they'll feel ok to go with the "strong horse" and vote in that direction. mebbe in politricks there's something about undecided voters in the end blowing with the prevailing wind?

I'd B pissed off too. It's intrusive, and no one wants 2 B misrepresented. Talk about takin' people for granted!

Lene said...

jelli said...

Mad Bull said...

But they are bright, eeeh? When they win, go and spray "Vote for Jdid" on the government building in the dead of night in big 20 foot high letters! Thet'll learn them!

Abeni said...

sounds like criminal activity to me. I agree with Leon about the tresspassing. And if you complain to the party office, they will say they outsourced the placing of the signs and don't know anything about who put what where. Still worth the fight though--it's the principle of it.
