MayDay 2011: 4 Years is Just the Beginning
I love reading all of the various prog blogs where people continue to be expecting that at the end of 4 years, the Conservative Party of Canada will cease to be interested in running Canada and that this will be when progressives will once again reign true and set Canada back on its course.
They’re so f-ing naive it makes me want to gag.
Let’s accept this: 4 years is just the beginning. And those years will be the easy part.
I have expectations now that my 7-year old son will be in the streets in a decade or so protesting the dictatorial status of his holiness.
In 2015, the Liberals probably won’t even exist and we’ll be buried with anti-NDP, Jack ‘rub and tug’ ads and all kinds of other dirty tricks to the point that we’ll be willing to throw our grandmothers in front of a train before being so bold as to think a progressive thought when we enter the polling station.
The propaganda will be so intense, so overwhelming and so unavoidable that the number of people turning away from media will be at unprecedented levels.
Let’s flash forward to now.
Within a couple of weeks, I’m optimistic that those who really care about this country will put down their pens and wipe screens and start talking with each other about how to get our country back.
