Yes, yes, I want you to rise up in revolt against Stephen Harper's malignant regime. I want you to stand up - in public - and tell everyone around you that he's crossed the line. I want you to proclaim that Canada won't be governed - or perverted - by Stephen Harper.
All I want you to do is wear an armband, a band of black cloth with an embossed red maple leaf. I want you to wear that, leaf turned upside down in the international symbol of distress.
But first I want every opposition MP - NDP, Liberal, Bloc and, yes, Lizzie May, to walk into the House of Commons, together, wearing that same armband to announce that the three out of five Canadians who didn't vote for Harper and a significant percentage of those who did will not tolerate his perversion of our democracy. They alone can imbue those armbands with legitimate, civil dissent. They have to do that for us on the floor of the House and damn them straight to hell if they won't.
So, if you're a Dipper, or a Green, or a Bloc or, especially, a Liberal, I need you to use your connections to get your organization behind us to make this a genuine movement to stop Harper and repudiate publicly his democratic abuses. Yeah, time to put that party shit aside and put Canada first.
This is shaping up to be an extremely challenging situation for our grandkids and their children. If they're to have any decent shot, we really have to start this now.
Will you back this? Will you throw a bit of money at it? Will you buy - and wear - the armband? Will you use your connections to get your political movement behind it? What's it going to be? With total honesty I can say that these things begin or die right where we are at now. The difference is up to you.
