You see harpercons, here is what you can't grasp. There are CONSEQUENCES for your actions.
To whit: If you believe that Parliament is a joke, to be treated with contempt, you cannot then turn around and bitch and moan if some brave, principled individual like Bridgette DePape interrupts your contemptible ceremonies.
Do you see how that works?
YOU are the ones who believe that the people's representatives don't deserve to know how much of the people's money you plan on spending. YOU are the ones who believe that you can use the people's resources in Afghanistan anyway you choose, even if it means committing war crimes with our tax dollars. YOU are the ones who write handbooks for the chairs of Parliamentary committees to obstruct their work.
You simply have no claim to our respect or obedience.
Do you understand this now?
You have shat upon Canadian democracy and you are going to reap the whirlwind.
And, no, the sad fact that a united minority of ignorant or apathetic dullards managed to scrawl an X beside their harpercon candidate's name does NOT eradicate the fact that the members of this government hold democracy and Parliament in contempt.
The achievement of this horde of shit-heads is NOT something that we are bound to respect.
It doesn't work that way.
stephen harper has renounced his authority over us. That our political culture is so debased is no reason for us to pretend that he had any.
