So two more scandals hit a government that is now so mired in scandal and abuse they make previous Liberal Governments look like a bunch of nuns. It seems that Peter MacKay has established the Canadian Military as an arm of the Conservative Party and the CPC has undermined the very structure of our democracy in a way that suggests that Canada's future is now in serious trouble. However, I have little doubt that the Conservative Cabal will simply ignore these scandals like they have ignored all others until the media gets tired and moves on. I am beginning to believe that we could find out that Harper is a child molesting agent for the CIA and the media would make some noise for a few days and then forget about it.
This leaves us with a serious question; what do we do when we realize that our system doesn't work? What do we do when a national Party can gerrymander the system, illegally fund themselves, actively suppress votes, and still get elected with a majority and function as a virtual dictatorship, all with the active support of the nation's media? This is a serious dilemma for anyone, conservative or liberal, who actually cares about our future because this is not about policies any more. The Conservative Party has a number of really bad policies, but these are small potatoes compared with their deliberate assault on democracy and the active and tacit support that they have received in that effort from the media.
The recent scandals are not just typical political scandals, they demonstrate that we now have a rogue government that is gradually colonizing the military and attempting to make the institutions of democracy dysfunctional like a thirdworld dictatorship. As a nation we will soon have to determine if we are willing to give up our country or not.
