So there it is, my take on a number of issues that face Canada and Canadians. I had a lot to cover, and it took longer than I wanted, but I felt I needed to counter the drivel the left-wing media tries to mislead Canadians with. The truth is that Canada is doing well with Harper as it’s leader, in fact Canada ranks as most reputable country in the world. It would also seem that Harper’s supposed hidden agenda wasn’t actually hidden after all. In the almost decade that he’s been at the helm, he has kept his campaign promises, and stayed true to his fiscal plan and economic policy. News of an early surplus was recently announced, much to the dismay of the far left whiners who fruitlessly attempted to discredit the good news. Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau wants to purposely run deficits for 3 years!
Even when putting aside what each political party represents, Harper is hands down the best of the three and the only one who has earned and deserves to be Prime Minister of our amazing country. I hope people found my blog informative, and I especially hope they have come to the same conclusion as I have, a vote for either the Liberals or NDP is a very bad idea. So on October 19th, for Canada’s sake, vote smart. Another Conservative majority is what we need right now, because if Trudeau or Mulcair… or worse BOTH end up in charge of Canada, Canadians won’t have to tell each other horror stories this Halloween… we’ll be living in one.
I’ll wrap this up with a letter I wrote entitled The Hysterical Harping On Harper which was printed in the Letters to the Editor section of my local newspaper. Enjoy! 🙂
My political views have always been consistent. For economic and legal/security issues, I lean more to the right of the spectrum, but when it comes to social freedom, I’m on the left. Generally I’m most comfortable in the centre, and I can’t help but notice that extremists, on both the far right and the far left, seem to suffer from a sort of mass hysteria when election time rolls around in Canada. For this particular election, it’s the far left that has been most effected by this phenomenon, often taking their disdain for Mr. Harper too far. I’m tired of the exaggeration and overreaction towards anything Mr. Harper says or does.
People, especially young people, are quick to succumb to peer pressure. They simply accept the clearly bias ramblings of the mainstream media as fact instead of thinking for themselves. Being young is not an excuse to remain uninformed, I’m a young voter too, but I prefer to make decisions based on my own ideals rather than blindly following others. After I researched Harper’s time as Prime Minister, I find this outrage towards him both unwarranted and perplexing.
Despite the assumptions of the media and far left supporters, Harper has been accommodating of Canadian diversity, all while putting Canadian citizens first, as it should be. He has also proven to keep his promise of not getting involved with sensitive social issues.
Aside from all that, the real question is, how can anyone actually believe that Justin Trudeau or Mulcair are suitable alternatives? That either of them could do any better than Harper? He’s not perfect by any means, but who is? Yet he’s scrutinized in a way that the other parties aren’t subjected to, and people aren’t paying enough attention to the dangerously ridiculous overspending and tax hikes the other parties are promising. To informed voters, the safest and most realistic choice is obviously Harper. He’s the only one with experience, and generally the only one of the three main party leaders who is even capable of running a country. We’ve all seen the “Stop Harper” signs favoured by some dewy-eyed crusaders with their unspecific calls for change. I truly hope that people do stop. Stop to actually think if the changes that come with a Trudeau or Mulcair government is really what they want, not only for themselves, but for the prosperity of our incredible country.
Update: I hadn’t planned to write another post, but I wanted to share my campaigning experience today, which backs up some of what I’ve been saying on this blog. This was my first time to go out campaigning. It’s not something I really wanted to do, but I thought I should experience it, get an impression for what kind of people vote for which party in the real world, not just online. The results were not very eye opening, it was more like confirming my observations regarding supporters of individual political parties, the more stable and the more radical ones. All and all, my experience was positive, but not one I would personally want to do again. It just wasn’t my cup of tea.
Most of the answers were either undecided, or they had voted already, but a lot of people weren’t home or didn’t want to come to the door. A cheerful Conservative supporter at one of the houses I went to was a pleasure to speak with, and agreed to a lawn sign on his yard endorsing the Conservative candidate. Even people who weren’t voting Conservative were pretty polite, or at least not hostile. However, there was one particular woman that pretty much fit the stereo-type of a raving far left loon. She was actually standing at the edge of her yard, purposely waiting for us to pass so she could start an argument with us. This woman was very unpleasant and downright arrogant, talking about how she works at a tax firm. If it’s true, her job obviously doesn’t involve mathematical expertise. Even if she were a janitor there, she could still claim to work at a tax firm. When I asked her if Justin Trudeau is really who she wanted as Prime Minister, she said “yes” then aggressively spouted off that Justin was actually right on point with his tax statistics, (with carbon taxes on top of regular taxes?), and economic plan. Then she stated all the so called refugees Justin wants to allow into Canada by the thousands are “fleeing for their lives because they’re getting killed in their country.” I told her that many of these migrants are dangerous and a threat to Canadians, but that only got her more riled up, and that’s when I took my leave. We’re suppose to keep a polite demeanor when we are representing the Conservative party, but it’s so hard to when dealing with people like her. As I walked away, I heard her complain to another person in my group that Harper was causing this anger towards these “refugees” she feels so sorry for. Really? Then take a look at this and this and this and this! Don’t give me the BS that this happens in every country, the fact is that Muslim men believe they are entitled to rape women, and even children, if they choose and everyone is suppose to just stand back and let them. No other culture or religion in this day and age teaches that men are entitled to rape and murder. People like this crazy woman are just pathetic pawns that the Muslims use to get their foot in the door. By the way we’ve been so accommodating, it will soon be inevitable when converting to Islam will become mandatory with the punishment of death because people refuse to acknowledge that many Muslims coming from these third world countries are nothing but barbaric misogynistic scum! Stop blaming Harper for turning people against Muslims, those who research and know the facts won’t stay in the dark and allow the extremist Muslim males to take over our country and get away with their subordination of women. Trudeau’s supporters are just as dangerous as Trudeau himself, succumbing to his fantasies and willingly jeopardizing the safety of all Canadians, refusing to protect women and children because they don’t want to hurt the fee-fees of the poor misunderstood Muslim men. These fools thoroughly disgust me, and I wish I could have schooled that crazy fan of Justin Bieber… I mean Trudeau, (same difference), on the facts, but I know it would have been pointless. She’s too thick skulled to face reality like all potheads on the fat left.
Then there was this guy with a Liberal sign on his yard standing just outside his door. Because of his Liberal sign, we just walked past and ignored him. However, this didn’t sit well with him, and he had to say something to us if we weren’t going to talk to him. So he yells “don’t bother. I’m a former Conservative and I’ve had it up to here with Harper” and raises a hand over his head to demonstrate how much he had it with Harper. Dude WTF? We did the courtesy of leaving you alone, and you couldn’t return the favour? I didn’t even bother this time, said “ok, whatever” and walked away. He states that he’s a former Conservative, but why would he choose now to stop supporting Harper when the alternatives are a million and one times worse? Just nothing but emotionally charged exaggeration from the militant left. I have to believe people like this are a small minority, just for the sake of keeping my hope for Canada alive. We’ll see on October 19th if I can still claim to be a proud Canadian.
