Over the course of the next few weeks as Canada approaches the vote on the budget that is expected to be defeated, the Liberals and Conservatives will be bashing each others heads into the wall. While the Conservatives go all out with Republican style ads, the Liberals mock Harper and create a Facebook page to fuel their Quebec wing of their campaign.
Canada has gone a long way in its history and today it looks at the longest standing minority government in its history. Although, when looking at Harper’s legacy, we look at a blank slate filled with spiteful and an American Republican approach to politics. Stephen Harper will not attack his opponents with policy, he will attack their person. Unfortunately, this disgusting method of politics works and is the politics that the Tea Party fueled Republicans use all the time. Unfortunately, the Liberal Party is too gentle and civil to scoop down to Harper and the Conservative party of Canada’s level of campaigning.
Reaching YouTube’s most viewed video position, the world is now aware of what Canadian’s think of their government’s budgeting abilities. The video: If I Had a Billion Dollars, a modified remake of the original by the Bare-naked Ladies has become the anthem to ridicule Stephen Harper’s fake lake and meeting filled with “rubber bullets.”
Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has proved yet again that their mandate isn’t to govern the country, it is to create positive media footage to mask their incompetence. In 2008, the signs of the on-coming economic disaster was looming but Harper’s “leadership” failed to recognize it. Instead, he called a snap election in a failed attempt to win a majority government.
