Celebrating Our Harper-Free New Year: The Video.
I was hoping to write a post summing up this momentous year, looking ahead to what might happen in 2016.
So I could finally bury the memory of Stephen Harper, to the sight and sound of fireworks.
But I was too exhausted, for it was a rollercoaster of a year.
He was a real monster...
We really dodged a bullet.
And when I think where Harper might have taken this country if he had been able to use fear and bigotry to snatch another bloody majority.
It still sends a shiver down my back.
But he didn't, we defeated him and his Cons.
He challenged us to stop him and his mighty Blue Machine...
And that's exactly what we did...
And by so doing showed ourselves what we can do when we are motivated, and organized, and work together.
Which should help us deal with anything the Cons throw at us in the next months and years.
Before, armed with a new electoral system, we are able to finish them off once and for all...
For it is a unique opportunity to destroy them, and it should be seized with both hands.
So we can finally stop worrying about them, start rebuilding what they have damaged, start dealing with our real problems...
Like poverty, hunger, sickness, and loneliness.
And start burying Stephen Harper's foul legacy in the garbage dump of history where it belongs...
I've started filing away some of the many images I made of him during the last nine and a half years.
But before I close that file completely, and considering it's New Year's Day in the New
I thought I'd pay a final tribute to that grubby little man with this little video...
Was there ever a fouler leader?
Was there ever a better reason to celebrate?
Are we going to finish off those Cons? You better believe it.
Thank you all for your incredible support and encouragement.
And Happy New Year everybody!!!
