The Republican Nightmare and the Canada Party

Well today is Iowa Caucus day in America, and I must admit I'm a little concerned about the mental state of many of our neighbours, and where they might be going.

Because in their current fevered state ANYTHING could happen.

And to make matters worse I'm also worried about being horribly embarrassed. 

For having confidently predicted that Donald Trump would NOT bring fascism to America.

Because he's too much of a blustering dickhead...

But now I'm not so sure...

Because what else can you call a man who would retweet material from a white supremacist site that includes a picture of Trump gassing Bernie Sanders?

Who just happens to be Jewish.

And this is also troubling. 

Long before Trump hit the campaign trail, his ex-wife, Ivana, told Vanity Fair in a 1990 interview that Trump kept a collection of Hitler’s speeches on his night stand by his bed.

But then Trump isn't the only Republican candidate who has a fascist problem. 

So does the brutish Ted Cruz, who Trump likes to slag as a Canadian because he was born in Calgary...

Thanks a lot Alberta.

And who in turn likes to portray Obama as a fascist, who's trying to disarm redneck Americans...

So that his Muslims can take over, confiscate their Bibles, and impose Sharia law.

Even though when he was younger, Cruz himself liked to fantasize about world domination. 

A new video of a teenaged Ted Cruz, posted Saturday on YouTube, shows a lankier and younger version of the future Republican presidential candidate sarcastically talking about his life’s goals —and they’re far more ambitious than the mere presidency. "Take over the world, world domination, you know, rule everything. Rich, powerful, that sort of stuff,” Cruz says.

As well as about how he'd like to star in a "teen tit film."

But didn't let that stop him from bringing in Phil Robertson yesterday, the patriarch of the redneck reality show Duck Dynasty, to declare that Cruz is godly, and gay people should be exterminated.

And let's face it, just one whiff of that redneck bigot is probably enough to gas us ALL.

So all I can say is that anyone following the Republican leadership race better come prepared...

And thank goodness for the Canada Party...

Its wall, and it's platform.

For decades, guns have been slandered by left-wing bullet-dodgers as somehow being responsible for killing people when they are really just doing what they were designed to do: kill people. As guns actually outnumber Americans now, we believe firearms are long overdue protection from the people who use them. 

We are pleased to announce our Bill of Rights for Guns, affectionately known around the office as “Every Gun a Loaded Gun.” (See America, But Better, Chapter 3.8: "All We Are Saying Is Give Guns a Chance")

Because that is the kind of message we should be sending our neighbours. 

Before they take advantage of the Harper peso, flood up here with their concealed weapons, and gun us down in the stores and in the streets.

Thanks Steve.

But sadly of course, we can't save America by taking it over.

Lest they drone us, or invade us before we finish sealing off the border.

And luckily there is one presidential candidate I can support.

Who I dare to dream might restore sanity, and the America I love...

Yup. Let's just pray that decency and hope will prevail over fear and madness.

God bless America. God save Canada.

Go Bernie go...

    He's the only real hope they have, Simon, of not continuing to be the now nightmare that was once the beacon of the free world.
    God help America.
    God save Canada.

      It's always been a nightmare since 1945. Remember Chile and Viet Nam.

    2. I agree, The American Empire, since 1945, has gotten bigger with 750+
      military basis along with involvement in other countries governments and endless wars all sustained by their endless propaganda. It amazes me that Americans have yet to figure out the destruction and domination their government is doing both domestically and internationally.

    3. Hi anon...yes I think Sanders is the only real hope for real change. The only one who is serious about taking on the bankers and the billionaires. And the one who has massive support from the young, who admire him for his vision and his obvious decency...

  2. Must be "something in the water"!

    The differences between Sanders and Trump are incredible. Sincerely hope that there are many more Sanders supporters.

    Thank you for video. Very nice.


    1. Hi TS....yes Bernie is no Trump, although both in their own way reflect the desire of so many Americans for something different and better. And yes it was a great video. Hope and optimism are so much better than fear and loathing....

  4. "confiscate their Bibles, and impose Sharia law."

    BUT most of Sharia Law comes from The Old Testament.

    1. Hi rww...yes I know, but you try to explain that to those crazy teabaggers, if you dare... ;)

    If Trump or Cruz were to win, we ought to get ready for the real refugee problem. Millions of Americans coming to Canada as political refugees. It will make us happy we had the experience of bringing Syrian refugees here, because we will need it. Many will be "economic" refugees, but many will be political.

    if Trump is elected we might see a first for Americans, an over throw by the Generals, because they won't give the "button" to Trump. Can you imagine him with that little red button. the worst of it is we sit between Russia and the U.S.A, although I do believe Putin and Trump will get on just fine.

    As some one said the biggest challenge the world has is managing the decline of the U.S.A. in this century.

    1. Hi e.a.f....I would welcome an invasion of progressive Americans. The Vietnam draft dodgers made their mark on the country, so the more the merrier. But as for the generals, I'm afraid they are more likely to overthrow Bernie Sanders should be ever get elected...

  6. Now that outsider Ted Cruz won the Iowa (Republican) caucus, the establishment Republicans will be spending gazillions on Marc Rubio's campaign, who came third, just behind Trump. One of the first things Rubio said in his Monday speech was if he became President, he would help "make America great again" by rebuilding the military! WTF? Gazillions are spent on the U.S. military now!

    Eisenhower's "Military-Industrial Complex" Speech Origins and Significance

    1. Hi David....yes I'm pretty sure that Rubio will end up as the candidate of the Republican establishment. He's pretty far out there himself, but beggars can't be choosers...

  7. Isn't Cruz a Canadian anyway? Remember the racists claiming Obama was a "Kenyan" - both Cruz and Obama have US mothers - because he was supposedly not born in the US. This was false of course, but Cruz was actually born in Calgary, not in the US.

    1. Hi lagatta....he was born in Calgary , and I believe his father was Cuban and his mother an American. So he can qualify as an American, and he has renounced his Canadian citizenship. But there is still enough in the margins to mount some kind of challenge, so the issue could come back to haunt him....

  8. It's a sad day when I think that Bush Jr's brother is actually the most intelligent and articulate of the bunch.
