Thoughts ATS & fellow Canucks?
Sure, starting here:
Well Canada, you wanted Harper.
I refuse to believe that many Canadians (a little over a quarter) actually voted for Harperism and his "Conservative" government.
The Americans love to cry about how Obama is destroying America, yet we actually have a government here in Canada ACTIVELY dismantling what makes us
Canadian, against the wishes of the vast majority of Canadians. In fact, some of the rabid right wing republicans have even said this crime bill is
Most Canadians are just in the dark of what is actually happening here, most of our news is American, our political issues don't seem that important,
I can get my Tim Horton's and gas up at Canadian Tire so why worry?
I started ringing alarm bells when the fastest growing industry in Canada became the prison building industry. Canada is right now living in a period
with some of the lowest crime rates, ever. And they are, annually, declining.
I started asking, who exactly are these prisons being built for?
Then a clear vision of "Harperism" appeared. King Harper decreed that the media will have no access. All MPs and anyone working in a government
position has to have their every word cleared by the PM's office.
Step 1, remove transparency, as such, dumb down most Canadians
Then Lord Harper, at the best of US MPAA and RIAA organizations, decreed that the internet will be restricted, regulated, and possibly taxed, for the
profits of a few corporations with stale business models, while punishing almost every Canadian directly by restricting our rights. Tacked into those
bills are things like making it illegal to use a false name online. Instantly everyone on my facebook page is a criminal, anyone posting on any blog,
website, or anything, with a "false name" is a criminal. ripping my legally purchased CD to my ipod becomes a crime. Youtube possibly becomes a
crime, using it, uploading to it, possibly being aware of it.
Step 2, criminalize as many things as possible
Then I hear about the government paying infiltrators and plain clothes police officers to infiltrate "problem groups" which almost any active Canadian
with a pulse could possibly be a member of. Remember the g20 RCMP inciting violence?
Step 3, create a problem to provide a solution
And now we have the government dictating that all government correspondence refer to the Canadian government as "The Harper Government" (Harper also
removed all the portraits of past leaders and replaced them with himself, I kid you not.)
And what is this "Harper Government" going to do? Simple:
Using the newly built prisons, restrictive and unjust laws, and corrupt government agencies, Harper is going to send anyone he deems unfavorably to
What Canadian agrees with a person growing a plant doing more time that a child molester? none that want to vote for Harper, that's for sure, and
lucky enough, he's essentially made everything those people do in their lives a crime. For profit. All for profit of private industry.
Step 4, Fascism Canadian style, with extra bacon
