As of this writing, over 70,000 people have joined the Facebook group against Harper’s proroguing of parliament. The REVOLUTION is on!
I can’t believe the justifiable anger oozing out of some of the comments being made here…
It makes for some real good reading, and I just can’t get enough of it! To finally hear people saying en mass some of what I have been saying for quite sometime now on this blog, is both encouraging, refreshing and invigorating. It seems as though people all at once have woken up to the very real threat that Harper and his conservatives represent to our people, our country and our democracy.
Mass demonstrations are planned and talk is already underway for an immediate election (after the Governor General’s Throne speech) to remove these guys from power, and from doing any more harm to our country than what they have already done.
The Revolution I have been calling for seems to be on its way. And it is about bloody time! Viva La Revolution!!!
Now, if we can get rid of the conservative government here in Alberta, maybe then this province and country will have a chance… Or, as I put it in a post to another blog earlier today…
Harper and his nutcase conservatives (Reform/Alliance) have done enough harm to this great country, just as Bush and the Republicans have done in the States. The people there and the people here have had enough (and seen enough) damage done because of these people and their fundamentally flawed, failed and self-serving ideology.
Being red in a sea of blue here in Alberta makes one, at times, feel lonely. But today, I feel there is hope that we all can soon move forward again, as proud Albertans and Canadians, having lived through and survived the tyranny and despotism which threatened to destroy our country and great nation.
In the meantime, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” :-)
UPDATE: Watch this video for an excellent analysis of Harper’s cynical… “debasement of our parliamentary system which is based on the principle of responsible government. The executive has to maintain the confidence of the popularly elected House of Commons. And what you have here is an executive which is deciding, determining when the House of Commons is going to meet. Which is his prerogative, but I think he’s been abusing it. And proroguing parliament twice in two years…which kills every single piece of legislation, every debate, all the work that has gone on in this parliament is all dead now and all has to be reintroduced again and we have to have three readings of every bill, it has to go to the senate, it has to be reviewed by committees… all that is dead. And that indicates that the government isn’t particularly interested in its legislative agenda.” – Nelson Wiseman (CBC News)
A conservative government is an organized hypocrisy.
