Stephen Harper, Rob Ford, and the Con Liars
The great Abraham Lincoln once said no man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.
But then he didn't live in Con Canada eh? And he didn't know Stephen Harper.
Because either the great man was wrong, or Harper has a phenomenal memory. Just like his scary ancestor.
Who never forgot ANYTHING his enemies did to him.
For even as Great Lincoln Leader struggles to put down the backbench rebellion of the Reform Confederacy, he just can't stop LYING.
Megan Leslie stood to plead confusion. Within the budget, she said, were tax increases. But the Prime Minister, she recalled, had promised not to raise taxes. So why, she wondered aloud, had the Prime Minister allowed the Finance Minister to contradict him?
“Mr. Speaker,” declared the Prime Minister, “it is quite the opposite.” Mr. Harper did not then explain how so. Instead, he alleged a number of tax increases that the NDP was apparently proposing.
Lying about the budget which is stuffed with stealthy tax increases.
“The truth here is clearly spelled out in black and white on pages 331 and 332,” Ms. Leslie explained. “This is not a make-believe tax, unlike the kind that the Conservatives love to accuse us of; these are billions in actual new taxes that will impact real people.”
Lying about the "NDP's job killing carbon tax" which never existed. It's a cap-and-trade proposal just like the one he once promoted.
And when I see how he lies so brazenly and so gleefully, it disgusts me. And I can't help wondering whether it's compulsive. Or whether it's a Con trait.
For all you have to do is look at his good buddy Rob Ford to see that he is playing the same game.
Denying reality, calling his critics liars. When his record speaks for itself.
Which makes me believe that it must be a Con trait. For only they, like most criminals, would think that they could get away with it. Only they would take us for FOOLS.
And above all, they know that if they told us the truth, we would never elect them.
And the good news? Lincoln was definitely right when he said that you can't fool ALL of the people ALL of the time.
For even I know this: If you allow Cons to lie all the time. And get away with MURDER.
It doesn't matter where you start the story, or how many times you repeat it, the ending is always the same.
First they'll consume our democracy.
And then they'll consume us ALL...
So please, tell me we've learned the lessons of history.
Tell me my country is better than that eh?
Then unite to defeat those filthy lying Cons.
And make my Canada clean again...
