It's one of my fondest dreams, the day Stephen Harper finally leaves. And it can't happen soon enough.
Because I honestly believe that him and his ghastly Cons are losing touch with reality, or think they can brainwash us all.
And that we are all FOOLS.
Because there he was in that latest Con propaganda video I ran last night. Telling Canadians that even though he blew the surplus before he had one, and even though experts are warning he's flirting with a deficit.
He's STILL a Great Economist Leader...
And he'll STILL have enough money to bribe voters.
And to make matters worse, now his oily stooge Joe Oliver is trying to make the future look even rosier, by suggesting he may
Finance Minister Joe Oliver is signalling he will change his department’s approach to calculating future oil prices, an accounting decision that will have a dramatic impact on the Conservative government’s election-year bottom line.
By ignoring those who warn that oil prices could stay down for a long time, in favour of those who believe they will soon rebound.
Using private-sector forecasts – some of which see oil prices rising later this year – would add billions to the government’s revenue projections.
And basing his upcoming budget on money he may never have.
And that's when I start thinking again of all the ways Stephen Harper could be gone by this time next year.
Just like Paul Adams does here.
There is a possibility that Stephen Harper could still be our prime minister this time next year — maybe until 2019, or beyond. But it’s still more likely that he will be gone by 2016, left only to haunt our dreams. It’s just the way of his going that has yet to be determined.
And I must admit I like ALL those scenarios. I find this encouraging:
Campaign rivalries might make it difficult for the Liberals and NDP to work together to oust Harper after the election. But those same dynamics would make it impossible for them to explain to their supporters why they’d prop him up. They’d be under pressure to find a way, soon after Parliament meets, to dump the Harper Conservatives. And they would.
But of course this too is true:
Summing all the scenarios, I think Stephen Harper is probably gone as prime minister within a year — even with a divided opposition. His only real chance to stay in power is an outright majority, which is a long shot. But if he is with us for another term as prime minister, it won’t be because we are living in a dictatorship. It will be because his opponents failed to get their act together.
Although I would put it this way: we do need to get our act together, or we will end up living in a dictatorship.
And the good news is, I'm sure we will rise to the occasion.
Let's keep building the Great Stop Harper Movement one person at a time...
Let's get ready to fight for our country with joy in our hearts.
Let's get ready to turf those ghastly Cons and their depraved leader.
And sing this song together...
