Stephan Harper is a man bitterly determined to destroy the Liberal party, as even his close friends admit. This has created a parliament in which the nation is essentially used as an audience while the political parties joust for attention. Meanwhile the nation’s real issues are ignored—who has time for that while in a battle for public attention?.
We will not get a working parliament back till Stephen is gone–politics is all he is interested in, not what are to him the mundane problems of the nation. He expressed his concern for us in this address to the Council for national Policy aid:
“Canada is a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it. Canadians make no connection between the fact that they are a Northern European welfare state and the fact that we have very low economic growth, a standard of living substantially lower than yours, a massive brain drain of young professionals to your country, and double the unemployment rate of the United States.”
It should be obvious, then, that he intends to privatize public organizations wherever he can and it seems likely that he would have deregulated our banks long ago if he had the majority he so fervently seeks. They would then have crashed alongside of their American brothers.
And that is why I have to question the intelligence of those who still support this man‘s economic policy. He keeps on saying he is doing a great job of the economy and many voters actually believe the guy.
Even after the economic collapse brought about by those policy’s that Harper supports, he ignored the horrendous loss of jobs, assuring us they would be replaced with more competitive jobs. Imagine the economic mess we would now be in if the opposition parties had not forced him the put in the stimulus program that he now takes full credit for. Think how disastrous it would have been if he had a majority. Economic stability? All the education in economics in the world is no match when confronted by an ideology
And putting aside Harper’s contempt for parliament, for a moment, how about his word? He recently again stated that he would not table a bill to stop abortions. But this man had also said he would put an end to political appointments to the Senate. And how many other promises has he made in the past that he no longer endorses.
I suggest that to Stephen Harper–with his blind determination to destroy the liberal party and all it stands for–he will say whatever is needed that will further his aim without even being aware that what he says might be judged in any other context than that.
What concern’s me most is why our population can be so easily mesmerized by statements about the economy just because they are repeated over and over again. Could this suggest a breakdown in our education system? Or are our brains being filled by toxics of some sort? Remember that Rome fell when lead poisoning afflicted the city.
