They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But let's be real: we all do it, and with good reason. A book's cover tells you a lot about the tone, ideals and values that you'll find within. The same goes for a political party's election slogan.

Judging by the slogan chosen by the Conservatives, they're promising to dismantle the very foundations of what has always made Canada great. Life isn't a competition. But by choosing "Time for you to get ahead" as their slogan, that's how the Conservatives want you to see it.

It begs the question: get ahead of who?

Definitely not the rich — the Conservatives' long, sorry history of lavishing tax cuts on the wealthy and the corporations they own makes that crystal clear. So if it's not the rich, it must be the rest of us.
