Rick Mercer and the Small-Time Election Campaign
It's been the longest and ugliest election campaign I have ever seen. A monstrous bigot game that has made us look cheap and ugly, and shamed us in the eyes of the world.
And as if that wasn't bad enough, then there is this deeply disturbing question:
How can such a big young country have such small dreams?
For what else can explain that despite the length of the campaign, there was hardly any discussion about climate change, or medicare, or poverty, or the plight of aboriginal communities?
Or the state of our bleeding democracy that Stephen Harper has raped so viciously.
It was all about balanced budgets, the middle class, tax goodies, fear and loathing and niqabs.
So yes, I share Rick Mercer's frustration.
You know, we all have to share a measure of responsibility for what this country has become. We have become too small for it. We have stopped dreaming big dreams.
We have been too complacent for too long.
But it doesn't help when we have a leader like Stephen Harper who has never sought to unite us in a common purpose. Only to divide us.
And try to scare us...
A small man, a winged maniac, a Con hog, who has never sought to build anything, only to destroy. And is now rolling in his own excrement.
But now we are only four days away from the election that will decide the fate of this country. And will hopefully destroy him and his foul regime.
When it's over we can go on a voyage of self discovery, and starting dreaming big dreams again...
But now we're heading for the beachhead, and the big battle ahead.
Vote informed. Vote smart. Don't let them steal the election.
And let's take our Canada back...
