The NDP is short for the New Democratic Party. It was began after the Canadian Labour Congress and the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation united. This party is a moderate leftist one, comprised of mainly Social democrats, however subscribers to Democratic Socialism also populate this party.
The NDP should change it's name to the Social Democratic Party.

Borderline-communist naive idealists.
Have high hopes socially, but all ideas are destructive to the economy and have no weight in the real world.
Supporters are usually the disillusioned students and hippie druggie welfare receipients, not understanding that there is more to politics and government than satisfying short-term emotional issues.
The NDP does not understand how to tackle a problem and get long-term beneficial results, thinking they can throw the money to the homeless and then from then on Canada will no longer have homeless people. Price caps, fierce anti-Americanism, etc make NDP look like idiots, and their leader who looks like Lenin's grandson doesn't make it any better.
All NDP-supporters have their thoughts governed by feelings and emotions - meaning they don't know how to pull out their calculators, use their heads, and realise that their utopian dreams cannot be achieved by such rash and idealistic plans.

The NDP is the party for wannabe saviours of the world. All its MPs failed math as well as economics.
NDP: I still believe in Santa Claus!

Liberals: God, the NDP still needs a night light.
Conservatives: Still wets the bed.
Liberals: Needs to hug its teddy bear.
Conservatives: Damn, I wish the NDP would just explode and die already.

A Canadian political party far left on the political spetrum. Usually assoitated with professiors who have absolutely no idea how to run a government. Most of its supporters are welfare recipents, and are traditonally leinant with communism. Is the last party that would ever hold power in Canada.
The NDP is a party that will never win a Federal Election.

New Democratic Party. A Party which believes that social priorities and the basic needs of the people come before corporate interests. This is NOT to say they are communists - that is a view held by severely ignorant people. The NDP has NO INTEREST in taking away your property and rights to pursue an economic dream. They believe that if you're fabulously wealthy, you should be helping out the less fortunate to a degree. It is the party that gave Canada its FREE HEALTH-CARE SYSTEM. People go on and on about the wonderful health care system we have: THANK THE NDP.
The NDP is all you got keeping you from a world where your blood greases the cogs of the corporate machine

Political party which believes in equality for all Canadians. Dedicated to exposing the moronic policies of the radical right. Most likley to form the next Canadian government after the Liberals.
Thank God we've got the NDP! Lord knows what would happen if those right wing extremists got in power!
