If It Was Up to Me...
I think Canada needs a restraining order against the sociopath now running our federal government. Ideally something that would keep him a safe distance from Ottawa and prohibit him from lurking anywhere in the vicinity of our kids' future.
Look, here's a test for sociopathy. A quick 20-questions, multiple choice. Your experience of Sideshow Steve over the past ten years is more than enough for you to complete the quiz on his behalf. See for yourself.
This guy is not a prime minister. He doesn't believe in the parliamentary system. The democracy bits keep getting in his way. As a sociopath he much prefers to style himself as a CEO or a generalissimo. He's the Big Cheese and you're not, nobody else is.
He's a master of the ruse. He came to power pledging transparency and accountability and no sooner had the dupes voted him in than he slithered beneath the carpet never to be either transparent or accountable, just the opposite.
As he dived into his hidey-hole, he took the government with him - the public service, the armed forces, the state police agency, the lot. The Great Corrupter transformed them from being in service to the public into his personal, partisan political agencies. You pay for the government but it works for him, not for you. Any doubt about that can be dispelled by looking at how the Canadian Revenue Agency persecutes his critics or examining how the state security apparatus has been harnessed in service to the energy giants against the public.
This was not easy to pull off. What made it work was his decision to segregate the government from the people. Public access was severed, a clean amputation. Public servants were gagged, out of reach to the public. When you intend to run a regime completely liberated from such things as facts and science, you cannot tolerate a public service that could both contradict and embarrass you.
I think this guy is a serious danger to the country. I fear for what he may do to the Canada our kids and grandkids will inherit. We are imperiled by this character and by his sham government, the instrument of our national corruption.
So far the only protection we've had against his excesses has come from our Supreme Court. The judiciary intervenes, time and again, to defend the public from their predatory political master. Is it too much to look to them to safeguard our future from this fiend?
