Guess what? The U.K. had an election a few days ago that resulted in a "hung", as the Brits call it, parliament. None of the three major parties received a majority. And, surprise, surprise, the first thing the Conservatives did was to start negotiations with the Liberal Democrats to form a COALITION government. And no one, in any party, started screaming TREASON or BETRAYAL OF DEMOCRACY as you did, just before you shut down parliament for the first time to avoid well-deserved defeat.

Of course, you, Harper, aren't interested in democracy or the welfare or the good name of the country. You're only interested in NAKED POWER at any cost, aren't you? No principles, no vision, no program, just NAKED POWER! Isn't that typical of white, anglo-saxon, fundamentalist christians, both here and in the Republican Party, your role models.

Guns and tar sands for every white man, denial of human rights and climate change, abandonment of the rights of women and minorities, abandonment of Canadian citizens abroad, financial irresponsibility, denial of corruption and torture scandals, those are the hallmarks of your power trip. Let's hope enough Canadians wake up before it's too late. Mediocrity is not something that suits Canada well, even if millions of Canadians seem to revel in it. But, for heaven's sake, let's stop making Canada a laughing stock in front of the entire world!
