It is a federal election year in Canada. The 2015 election is unpredictable and could be a game-changer. Here is my advice to Canadian voters.
There is no point replacing Harper with a brainless twit who will continue to drive Canada in the same direction. Trudeau is no Trudeau, when it comes to Canadian independence and fundamental values.
Trudeau is the continuation of the new Liberal line: Paul Martin, Stéphane Dion, Michael Ignatieff …
Martin destroyed the party by infighting to veer the country clearly towards US interests and increased integration into US geopolitical designs. Dion was a lame attempt to present a facade of reason, without any correction of direction. Ignatieff was a pathetic Harvard boy brought in like a hand puppet to manage the Martin take-over.
Canadians soundly and rightly rejected the Harvard boy. That would have been too much. But the boys in charge are clearly the same with Trudeau. Trudeau is pro-war, pro-Bill C-51, pro-integration with US foreign policy of destruction and intimidation, pro-foreign-owned capital and corporations setting the rules, and so-on.
Trudeau’s entire strategy is to maneuver into your vote. There is no principle, no direction, no plan to make Canada work for Canadians, nothing other than photo ops, double messages, superficial posturing, and middle-class bribes that will dissolve quickly if they are ever implemented for the sake of short-term political advantage.
The Liberal party is a has-been for good reason. It no longer deserves the trust of Canadians.
There are still 30 (of 105) Liberal Senators. What have they done to oppose Harper’s selling of Canada to US oil interests and US military adventures? I haven’t heard a beep out of them. They know the workings of the system, yet they have not spoken to public opinion.
If you know a candidate in your riding and trust that candidate then vote for him or her. Otherwise, if you are looking to the party leaders and to the party history for change towards a strong and independent Canada that works for Canadians, then abandon the Liberals and vote strategically to not split the vote.
The NDP is far from perfect and far from uncorrupted by corporate influence, but it might find a desire and a backbone, given electoral power, to give Canada back to Canadians, all Canadians. It could bring us back towards some sovereignty and away from US criminality.
Canada needs the world, and could be respected by the wold, if it moved away from the self-destruction of having only the US and Israel as allies.
A new world is emerging, with a strong Russia-China-India alliance that cannot be intimidated. Canada and Europe can work together to talk some sense into the US-Israel desperate madness of domination by force, while preserving its sovereignty for Canadians, all Canadians.
Don’t vote Liberal. That would give a very predictable and bad outcome. Vote for a chance at a better model and a better future.
