O Canada! (Reprise)

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love until Harper’s command.

With glowing eyes we still despise,
(A) Conservative in charge!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we want a change for thee.

We want our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we want a change for thee.

O Canada, we want a change for thee.

And before you say we’re being too harsh, remember that Harper and his party, among other things:

  • allow CSEC to illegally spy on Canadian citizens (Globe and Mail)
  • support the Trans Pacific Partnership and its provisions that allow Canadian citizens to be thrown in jail just for clicking on a web link (SI / Huffington Post)
  • recently legalized GM alfalfa and other dangerous GM crops in Canada (NDP)

The definition of a conservative is supposed to be someone who follows a political and social philosophy of retaining traditional social institutions, not someone who promotes the introduction of poisonous food, extreme round-the-clock Orwellian dystopian monitoring of fellow citizens, and the introduction of legislation that will allow the innocent to be punished, fined, and jailed while the guilty roam free. Whatever happened to Blackstone’s formulation, which was a view shared by the Federalists, including Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, who penned the constitution that formed the United States of America that we, Canadians, support with our heads, hearts, and, most importantly our dollar (as the USA is our largest trading partner that accounts for over 50% of our imports and almost 75% of our exports)?

I used to think that all big political parties were slow lumbering oxen that were more or less indistinguishable, each with grandiose election promises that wouldn’t be fulfilled, but not that harmful as they moved to slowly and were collectively too mired in their own deadweight to do anything truly evil. But now I know otherwise. In Canada’s case, one party has proven themselves to be truly harmful to our country and has to go.

You are the biggest prick I have ever met, & I've met George Bush!
