What Do You See When You Look In The Mirror?

What is up Canada, what do you see when you look in the mirror? How could we the people of Canada allow ourselves to forget who we are, forget what we stand for and forget all that we have learned through our history whether it be good, or bad? How could we give up our rights and freedoms and settle for a life better suited to an ass, that toils for its master, with no say? How could we become a people who show no empathy, no sympathy and no compassion for others, because we are afraid to speak up for ourselves and so accept blindly what our elected officials say to be true? Why do we answer, “We believe you,” every time a politician asks, “Do you believe me, or your lying eyes?”  When did we as Canadians decide that we did not care as much about the suffering of mankind, the state of our environment, and our freedom of choice, as we did about turning a profit? If you would say that what I have just said is a lie, then why we do we as Canadians keep proving what our politicians are always saying is true? Why do we keep loyally voting them into office time and time again, when they insist that, “turning a profit in all that they do is what Canadians expect, want and elect their politicians to do? Politicians begin by only saying what they think will get them  elected and will only do what they think will get them re-elected, so who else’s fault could it be, that we are being governed by politicians who think that turning a profit for Canada is what we as Canadians want them to do more than anything else, if they want to get our vote? I honestly do not know how, or why we as people have allowed ourselves to become blind, deaf and mute to all that is happening around us, but I will say that we Canadians deserve everything that we are getting from this strong, stable, majority, conservative government, because,

  • It was us the Canadian voter who put them into  power with a majority government after they were forced to shut down their minority government for misleading parliament, which means they were guilty of intentionally misleading us the Canadian people.
  • It is us the voter who sit in our homes quietly as this government takes our rights and freedoms away from us one right and one freedom at a time,  instead of going into the street and creating such a scene that this government would be forced to change their ways.
  • It is us the Canadian  voter who says and does nothing while this government creates laws like Bill C-23  Fair Elections Act an act most experts and me feel is designed to allow this government to legally commit election fraud, as well as deny an element of voters that does not traditionally vote for their party (students and seniors), their  right to vote.
  • It is us the Canadian voter who  has allowed this government to pass Bill C-13 into law. We have not protested Bill C-13, even when we found out that it was not the anti cyber bullying bill it was promoted as, but a cynical and sadistic use of those who died like Amanda Todd   to reintroduce Vic Toews’s Bill C-30. We the Canadian voter say and do nothing while this government presses to legalize warrantless snooping and gathering of Canadian’s private internet information, by law enforcement personnel choosing instead to lend a blind eye to this government’s sidestepping of judicial scrutiny as well as transparency with the Canadian  people?
  • It was we the Canadian voter who cheered as this strong, stable, conservative government began using  time allocation to shut down debate and using prorogation to avoid answering difficult political questions, making record use of these two things and making a mockery  of the Canadian system of democratic governance.
  • It is us as Canadians who do nothing while this government unilaterally sends our military into war ill-equipped; not because we are unable to do better and still wish to do our part to help our allies fight the terrorist threat of ISIS, but because the conservative government decides time after time not to get new equipment, but rather to refurbish and refit old out dated equipment in order to save money by balancing its budget in time for the next federal elections in 2015, making political points with us the voter by sacrificing the safety and combat readiness of those who protect Canada and all Canadians.
  • It is none other than the Canadian voter who remains silent as this government takes away every support system that our veterans have come to rely on and deserve throughout the history of Canada. We sit on our sofas and watch as this government shuts down veteran’s hospitals all over Canada, refuses to help treat veterans suffering from PTSD and refuses to find and help all of the veterans that we all know comprise a great deal of the homeless people literally living, suffering and eventually dying on the streets that they helped to protect with their service.
  • It is us the voter who stand by and allow this government to mistreat the first nation people of Canada by forcing into law bills like Bill C-25 to legislate away the right to exist for some Mi’ckmaq First Nations People. Bill S-6, Yukon and Nunavut Regulatory Improvement Act: Proposed Amendments to the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act (YESAA). Problem is that first nations people were not consulted for about the amendments at the time of the meeting involving first nations leaders and the government in other words the government tried to back door the amendments.
  • It is us the voter who would prefer to hear political rhetoric that be told the truth, like we witnessed when Canada’s Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney used a 10-year-old reports to create an immediate threat of an attack from ISIS directly on Canadian soil
  • It is us the voter who continues to allow this government to change who we are in terms of foreign policy when dealing with things like humanitarian assistance, by (a)refusing to help nations that have nothing we want in terms of trade, or strategic military value, or only offering to put in what the equivalent of what private donations can be collected by a government decided cut off date. (b)rewriting our immigration system so that it discriminates against certain type of refugees, who now will find themselves thrown in jail upon their arrival to Canada detained without benefit of trial and treated as a possible terrorist and enemy of the state, instead of made to feel welcome, helped and assured that at long last they have found safety and refuge in Canada. It is we the voter who sat quiet and debated intellectually amongst ourselves while this government imprisoned 492 Tamil men, women and children of the MV Sun Sea, because they believed that there were terrorists among them. To date how many were found to be terrorist? How many of these Tamil refugees that this government re-victimized once they stepped foot on Canadian soil were actually deported as proven terrorists? How many of them were resettled in Canada and how many of them still are in jail as the government delays and stalls the case in the courts? Was Bill C-4, the Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada’s Immigration System Act really necessary and why do we as Canadian voters not care?
  • It is us the voter who have allowed this government through our collective silence to make a mockery out of our democratic system of government. To allow for the most part agencies like Elections Canada, Privacy Commission, Parliamentary Budget Office and Auditor General’s Office  to be reduced or are in the processes of being reduced to little more than powerless  symbolic shells;  their decision-making and oversight power given over to the government’s ministers.
  • It is us the Canadian voter who have allowed this government to turn this great country into little more than another American state. The most common answer used  by this government when asked why Canada is doing anything concerning  environmental issues, economic issues and even issues concerning decisions about when to go to war is, “We have no choice but to do what the USA asks of us…”
  • It is us the Canadian people who are doing nothing as this government tries to remove judicial oversight from the our way of governance, by demeaning it and marginalizing it value, seeking to steal authority from the Supreme  Court of Canada, take its powers and add them to its own.

Canada is being governed by this government with the same lack of  democratic principles as the banana republics and maniacal dictatorships that we denounce as not representative of their people’s desires and needs, oppressive, dangerous to themselves and the rest of the world and in need of regime change.  How could we the people of Canada just bend down our heads and without even a fight, or a modicum of resistance allow a yoke to be put over our heads and a bit placed in our mouths? When the people of a country can  be made to forget who they are, forget what they stand for and forget all that they have learned through their history whether it be good, or bad they become little more than jackasses that toil for their master, with no say?

How could we become a people who pretend to feel no empathy for others, because we use the excuse of our world-renowned passiveness as our excuse to not speak up for ourselves and not to take meaningful action to bring down this despotic regime  with every legal means at our disposal?  Instead we make the choice every day to quietly go along with what our elected officials say we must do, even though the evidence proves that they lie about everything and are motivated solely by profit and personal political gain?  I do not know how, or why we as people have allowed ourselves to become blind, deaf and mute to all that is happening around us, but I will say that we Canadians deserve everything that we are getting from this strong, stable, majority, conservative government. What is up Canada? When you look in the mirror, is it the face of an ass that you see string back at you?
