Should the Conservatives Change their Name?
Now that the Conservatives have announced plans to scrap the gun registry, and signalled their intention to bring back the death penalty.
Now that they have launched a new War on Drugs.
With mandatory jail sentences that will turn our jails into overcrowded gulags just like they did in Amerika.
As a result of the "war on drugs" officially initiated by President George H. W. Bush (R, 1989-93) in the late 1980s, and mandatory sentencing laws that have spread across the country, the U.S. has become the world's leading jailer. With just 5% of the world's population, the U.S. holds 25% of its prisoners
Now that Peter MacKay has denied allegations of torture and rape in Aghan jails.
By saying this:
"You know what is pathetic, Mr. Speaker? What is pathetic is the absolute fixation and this feigned moral indignation from the member opposite about the transfer of Taliban prisoners.... While we understand fully the need to uphold international obligations, while we understand fully the need to help bolster Afghan capacity with respect to these transferred prisoners, what is absolutely abhorrent is this member's fixation, knowing that the blood of Canadian soldiers and innocent Afghans are on the hands of the Taliban."
Just like Dick Cheney would.
Can we now call the Harper Conservatives the Harper Republicans?
I thought so.
The longer these filthy Cons stay in power.
The more piggy they are....
