Harper is a man who wants Canada to regain its status as the first colony of the most powerful empire on the planet.  That is an old Conservative trait just a new empire. IMO it has been the elites' first choice for the basis of an economy since the United Empire Loyalist.

Harper is not like any of the American's named because Canada is not a world leader.  If you look at his foreign policy through the lens of a toadie it makes perfect sense and indeed he is accomplishing most of the ddep integration agenda by the "democratic" use of regulations and hidden clauses in large unrelated bills.

To me the best comparison is R.B. Bennett. He too was a one man show and most people in the country considered him to be a heartless prig.  Hell the PM's website has a fawning piece on his leaership during the great depression.

"You can't put this at the hands of the Tories only. Martin brought in draconian budger after draconian budget. The Libs were silent while the bronfman's got a 600 million tax cut, havent said much since FIRA was gutted, didn't complain about how unaffordable tax cuts are, and were in Haper's budget, and don't seem to have any intentions to do much to improve UI when they regain power (and by the way THE LIBS were the ones who renamed it to the laughable "Employment Insurance".

For sure the Tories are just evil and stupid, but don't hold your breath about the Libs. They will cut the budget to balance it when they regain power, and I tell you hear, right now, the Libs will be the first ones to privatize parts of Medicare when they regain power, in the name of "fiscal responsibility".

Indeed, " how many times must these people be warned before you say enough "you made your bed " etc.". Don't think the Libs well save things either.

Someone posted elsewhere in this blog that "Liberals are simply Tories who lie". I don't know how it could be put any better.

Thats my take on it. Leadership in Canada is following what americans want. Even when you look at the potash deal...it was an american company. To me that is the only reason it was protected. Why did they not do the same for Nortel? They didn't even allow RIM to bid. They pushed them out because they jumped the cue or some shit.

Hunter Mars, just noticed this post.  This is oppressive language and contrary to babble policy.  Don't make references like this again.
