Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy. – Ernest Benn
The above quote pretty much sums up the recent actions of the Conservatives. Harper once again tried playing political brinkmanship, instead of doing his job of running our country to the best of his ability, during these difficult times. He has shown us again, he is not a leader of all the people, only a leader of some of the people (Reform/Conservative).
I welcome a coalition government and truly believe more good will come from them (as history has proven) than anything we can expect from the conservatives whose only mandate will be to take advantage of our economic crisis to enrich themselves, and their friends, at the people’s expense.
Hearing that feelings of despair and inferiority are unequally distributed does not move conservatives. Under meritocracy, it is just deserts.
Republicans (Conservatives) do not believe that people can work together and help each other so they do not believe in government and law. Instead they believe in a dog-eat-dog, everyone on-their-own and out-for-themselves society where the strongest survive and it doesn’t matter what happens to everyone else. So whenever conservatives gain power they abuse it and use it to get money for themselves and their friends.
