Stephen Harper's Ghastly Personality Cult
It's a personality cult worthy of a place like North Korea. With a monomaniacal Great Leader who seeks total power.
Who would muzzle his opponents, declare the truth to be what he says it is, attempt to brainwash us into submission with OUR money.
And replace the Government of Canada with the Harper government.
Public servants have issued more than 2,700 news releases since 2011 attributing virtually every federal initiative and spending announcement to the “Harper Government”—from a $1-billion budget measure in Ottawa to $128,000 for a beach upgrade in Conservative MP Gerald Keddy’s riding.
Records tabled in the House of Commons reveal the government spent at least $206,756 to circulate the news releases on commercial news wires, and the Liberal Party, which asked for the information, argues the figures demonstrate the extent to which Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Calgary Southwest, Alta.) has politicized day-to-day operations of the public service.
A government shaped in his own monstrous image, where hungry children are ignored, the young have no future.
And old people are condemned to misery...
Or told that eliminating home mail delivery in a country as harsh as Canada is good for them.
The head of Canada Post says seniors have told the corporation they want more exercise and fresh air in answer to an MP's question about how the elderly will be especially hard hit by the cancellation of home mail delivery.
Even if they have to drag themselves to the nearest community mail box, or crawl there on their hands and knees.
Asked how the post office would accommodate people with disabilities, Chopra said extra mailbox keys would be given to people so others could pick up their mail, or the height of community mailboxes could be adjusted.
A government so cruel and callous it would spend hundreds of millions of dollars on its Orwellian Porky Action Plan propaganda.
But doesn't have enough money to help the country's most vulnerable citizens.
A government that would make a virtue out of cutting taxes, to destroy our sense of community.
We are more than just consumers and taxpayers. We are citizens with responsibilities for one another; we undertake to do some things together, things that we could never do alone or that we can do much better collectively. Taxes are the way we pay for those things. They’re the price of living in Canada and the opportunities that provides. Indeed, those opportunities exist because of the sacrifices and taxes of previous generations to build the Canada we inherited.
It’s become a political truism that politicians would have to be nuts to talk about taxes unless they’re promising more cuts. But that fear of taxes is limiting, dangerous. We need to shift the conversation, to recognize that the public services and goods we value have to be paid for and that tax cuts are not free. We cannot have Swedish levels of service and American levels of taxation.
And appeal to the lowest instincts of Canadians...
A government so sleazy that Mike Duffy goes on forever.
In a time warp of corruption.
A leader so ghastly and so vain that as millions suffer, would release this video to celebrate HIMSELF...
Because that's a Great Leader eh? Who would sing for his fancy supper while others go hungry.
And what more can I say that I haven't said before every night for eight years?
Except that if this is Canada I don't recognize it.
And now that we have seen what Great Leader, the bully, the maniac, would do to our country.
How and when can we STOP him?
