thumbs down on Harper
This guy is completely out of touch with what the majority of Canadians want from our PM. He is operating as if he is a narcissist - everything his way with no regard for anyone else... except his buddy CeO's and their corporations. The fact that he's now considered the worst PM in Canada's history with plunging support in the polls, says it all.
Harper the Fraud
It takes very little research to prove that our PM has acted in a manner that is exactly opposite to what he spoke loudly against when in opposition, and that he is well on his way to destroying a great democracy based on his ultra conservative religious ideology. Omnibus budget bills that among other things have gutted environmental protection for our increasingly valuable freshwater resources, a dismal economic track record that continues to degrade the middle class and is not the envy or the best in the world in spite of his claims to the contrary, the stifling of science and freely stated scientific opinion, the labeling of any that oppose his policies as enemies and fanatics, the diminished reputation of Canada on the world stage as an environmental pariah and lap dog of broken US foreign policy, the loss of our place on the UN Security Council, anti-crime legislation that flies in the face of all evidence that crime is declining and that this issue should be approached differently, election fraud and associated criminal behaviour, the G-20 debacle with attacks on free assembly and speech, including Gazebo Tony's mis-use of tax dollars for his benefit, billions of dollars lost according to the Auditor General, failure to take responsibility for the Senate scandal and Mr. Wright, failure to allow media to question him about important issues in open forums, blaming the other parties for all of Canada's ills based on their past performance, answering all criticisms with an attack on others, and so on and so on and so on! This is Stephen Harper's legacy and it is nigh time for him to disappear and some day be remembered as only a bad dream.
Harper isn't Canada
Harper maybe didn't used to be so bad, but the Harper I see today is a weak leader who bows to politically correct pressures and sectarian interests, betrays Canada by SELLING MINERAL RIGHTS to the CHINESE, squashes the abortion issue which thousands of Canadians would like addressed (there are currently no laws whatsoever on the subject), bullies his own party members into toeing the line rather than genuinely representing their constituents, denies Canadians their rights, taxes the socks off the people who can least afford it, gives big corporations an undeserved golden handshake, panders to Muslim leaders and powerful lobby groups, and does absolutely nothing to pursue or jail the pedophiles and porn-pushers in our schools and social institutions. Anything else you'd like me to mention? I suspect the poor guy was a decent chap who got sucked into the power vortex and suffocated there. Coincidence that he was observed to attend a Bilderberg meeting and suddenly became PM in the next election.
I am thrilled to have a leader who represents the people of Canada with dignity. I like his bill on crime, the way he has handled the economy in this very difficult time and the way he is looking after our northern borders. People forget that he did not want a stimulus bill but the opposition forced him into it and now complain about the debt. It wasn't Harper that got us into Afghanistan it was the Liberals, convenient they forgot about that. There are some things I am not happy with - the fact that the representative I voted for doesn't have a voice but MUST follow the party line. I would also like to see "referendums" being something added to the voting system on very important issues to Canadians i.e. the right to a dignified end of life issue being one topic. I also like the way we vote, most votes wins, easier to understand. I sympathize with our Prime Minister in some of the people he put in the senate but at the same time, they certainly fooled a lot of other people as well. I do not want the senate abolished but I would like to see them elected for possibly an 8 year term. I would like to see better spending restrictions not just for senators but all politicians. I would also like a review of compensation and pensions for all politicians to take place and be more reflective of our present day economy. The days of earning a salary for doing nothing should be over and getting a glorified pension after a few years of "work" are over as well, at least 10 years on the job and over the age of 45 and then a pension that they have contributed to be awarded (just like an ordinary working Canadian). There is only so much a Prime Minister can do in the time allotted before elections but I believe PM Harper has done an honourable job of it.
Stephen Harper is a dictator
Please vote Stephen Harper out. He should have already been removed as Prime Minister. We could go on and on about what he's done however if you believe that he has done ANY good for Canada, please do some ACTUAL research. The evidence will speak for itself.
