Why I Won't Vote for Stephen Harper


Lost in a Sea of Immorality

Disgusting Policies

The War On Veterans

May 8, 2014 - Stephen Harper visited Afghanistan for the 4th time. He is quoted as saying,  " I am humbled and honoured to have met these Veterans who have given so much, and, along with a grateful nation, thank them for their service.” And how does he help them?

January 28, 2015 - Well, his federal government spent almost $700,000 fighting disabled Afghan veterans in court who believe the current benefits system is cheating them.

The government’s lawyers have argued that Canada does not have a “social contract” to take care of its veterans.
For decades, veterans had assumed that Canada had the legal and social responsibility to take care of its former soldiers.

Are you fucking kidding me? What kind of immoral bullshit is that? This prime minister has the gall to go get a photo-op in Afghanistan wearing the uniform of a service he was never in and thanks the troops for their sacrifice.

Then he comes home and fucks the wounded warriors by denying benefits through his idiot puppet, Veteran Affairs Minister, Julian Fantino, and spends my tax payer money to do it? Motherfucker. And Peter MacKay is no better than those two

I think the three of them should be parachuted into Kandahar in full military gear with rifles and ammo and told they would be picked up in a month. Good luck guys. We’re right behind you.

Abuse of First Nations’ Women & Girls

Our government needs to deal with the plight of aboriginal girls and women. That’s the real law-and-order agenda that Canada is not addressing. Locking up unprecedented numbers of aboriginal women is not the way to provide them protection and security. 1181 missing and murdered aboriginal women and Harper says it's, “not a priority.” This guy was missing the day God handed out hearts.

Climate Change

Stevie needs to stop ignoring climate change. It’s real. It’s a crisis. He's got to stop calling regulations on the energy sector “crazy.” The rest of the world finds Canada’s refusal to act on greenhouse gases crazy. The same applies to endangered species. Why does Harper refuse to join the world in restricting trade in endangered species?

Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia

Canada is sending billions of dollars in military supplies to Saudi Arabia. Last year Harper approved contracts totaling more than $10-billion to supply the Saudi royal family with military armed vehicles.

He claims to care about human rights. Do you think those vehicles will be used to spread freedom and women’s equality throughout the Middle East?

Hell, they are not even being used to fight ISIS. In fact, some Saudi Arabians are financial backers for ISIS. Stevie makes one bonehead move with two different repugnant consequences.

Refugees

Canada needs stop treating refugees as if they were criminals and cheats and denying them health care and welfare. Your Minister of Immigration, Chris Alexander, has emerged as the meanest member of your mean government. Legitimate refugees are not abusing the system.
Harper’s immigration policies are a whole other story.


Government Corruption

Senatorial Malfeasance

Stephen Harper began his national political career promising to reform the Senate. So what does he do? He appoints Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau, Pamela Wallin and Mac Harb; all crooks of the first order. They join the legendary Senator Andrew Thompson in the annals of Senate corruption and all of them belong in jail. Read more

Cabinet Hanky Panky

Meanwhile Peter MacKay uses military helicopters to go fishing in Newfoundland. MacKay has said that he used the helicopter as part of a search-and-rescue exercise in July 2010, but recently-released Defence Department emails suggest otherwise.  Military emails indicate personnel were told the "mission will be under the guise … of SAR (search and rescue) training." Can  you spell entitlement?

Parliamentary Secretaries

Harper has appointed enough buffoons as Parliamentary Secretaries, Cabinet Ministers and Senators. Each has brought the House of Commons into greater disrepute:

Nigel Wright – Chief of Staff  (Wright resigned from the Prime Minister's Office  after it was reported that he had given money to help Senator Mike Duffy repay the government for ineligible housing expenses.

Dean Del Mastro  - MP (charged by Elections Canada with falsifying election documents and knowingly exceeding the Election spending limit, he resigned from the Conservative caucus.)

MP Pierre “Skippy” Poilievre
- MP (famously said, “the root causes of terrorism is terrorists.” A deep thinker .)

Paul Calandra - MP (Harper’s lap dog Question Period fielder of non-answers, deflections, and attacks)

The Tory Team has made a mockery of Parliament. Stevie should be ashamed, but he seems to know no shame.


Abhorent Government Practices


Omnibus bills

Canada must end to gargantuan omnibus bills, yet another means by which Harper mocks the democratic processes. Former auditor-general Sheila Fraser said that thanks to such bills, “Parliament has become so undermined that it is almost unable to do the job people expect of it.”  But Stevie the narcissist couldn’t care less.
CRA as a weapon

It should be a federal crime for the Prime Minister, or any other MP to use the Canadian Revenue Agency to intimidate or silence their critics. Politically-motivated tax audits are a Watergate kind of tactic that has no place in a democratic nation. Tricky Dick Nixon is no role model for Canada.

Partisan Advertising
NO government should be using public money to brazenly promote partisan messages. It’s simply cheating. We know exactly how you’d scream if another government tried this same trick. Harper’s double standards make Canadians cynical about all politicians. His 2014 anti- Trudeau campaign is an embarrassment to all Canadians. It is sophomoric innuendo and ultimately will prove ineffectual.


To Summarize


I am NOT a huge fan of Justin Trudeau, nor have I ever voted NDP. I think Justin is young, green, unpolished and as yet unsoiled by the filth of politics. He will make mistakes and say the wrong things but God willing he will work within the system with some grace and effectiveness. Time will tell.

Stephen Harper is a man without a soul.He has no scruples or integrity. He is an ego on wheels. Nothing more, nothing less. And he should no longer run this nation. So once again, I'm not voting to elect someone, I'm voting to get rid of someone. Sad state of affairs.
