The Missing Surplus and Stephen Harper's Last Big Lie
Up until the very moment his Con regime went crashing down in flames, Stephen Harper's waxy face stared out at us trying to brainwash us into believing that he knew what he was doing.
That only he, Great Economist Leader, could protect the tanking economy from the opposition and other terrorist sympathizers, spend billions trying to buy votes, but still balance the budget.
And still produce a miraculous $2 billion dollar surplus !!!
But sadly for him his ghastly game show was abruptly cancelled. He went missing.
And sadly for us so did the surplus.
Now it's a $3 billion DEFICIT.
The new Liberal government has gone over the books and says it is likely inheriting lots of red ink. The last Conservative budget forecasted a $2.3-billion surplus for this year, but Finance Canada now says it's more likely the year will end with a $3-billion deficit — and that's before Liberal campaign promises are costed in.
And Stephen Harper's last Big Lie...
He wasn't a Great Economist Leader.
And Joe Oliver wasn't a real finance minister...
Before he finally fell off that tightrope, and was booted out by the voters.
But of course, we're left holding the bag for the Con's disastrous economic policies, and their oily obsessions. With an economy on life support, an inflated housing market, one of the highest levels of household debt.
And a tanking loonie ...
Which is driving up the price of food, stretching the budgets of many poor Canadians to the breaking point.
And among other things, will make it harder for millions of others to get to the sun this year...
But of course the really scary part is what Stephen Harper might have done to Canada, if he had won the election.
And then revealed that there was no surplus, and that we were all going to PAY for it...
But luckily he lost, his myth as a Great Economist Leader was finally demolished.
And it seems only right to me, as Justin Trudeau sets out to destroy what's left of his legacy, brick by brick, that Harper should last be spotted in a book shop trying to bone up on the subject.
On Remembrance Day, he was apparently wandering around a Chapters store in Calgary. A local author, Shelley Arnusch, was in the store to promote her new kids’ book, Too Many Teddies, when she was approached by the former prime minister. “He mistook me for store staff and asked if I could help him find the ‘business and economics section,’” Arnusch wrote on Twitter.
And no doubt trying to improve his skills as a Con artist...
Which makes me think that the Harper regime should be audited, like they audited their enemies, to see if they've been cooking the books in other places.
And that we need a full criminal investigation into the activities of that corrupt gang during their years in power.
So that hopefully at least the ring leader might be jailed...
But of course we can't have everything.
And what we got was good enough.
A chance for a better life, in a better country, with a REAL Canadian Prime Minister.
And this epitaph for the Con artists...
What more could we ask for?
Have a great weekend everybody...
