It's just not a Canadian Election ...

... until Michael Moore has had his say. And just to clear things up Mikey, we've already elected a PM who was for the Iraq War and against same sex marriages; his name is Paul Martin. But like so many other Liberal values, his beliefs were essentially written in sand and changed whenever it became politically correct to change them. Now he's the champion of everything he was once against. Not-withstanding clause anyone?

Oddly enough, I don't recall any public statements from anyone in the current administration telling Canadians to "roll over and fetch and sit". The only thing close was a request, that has been repeated for years and by more than the current US admin, for us to finally properly fund our military to both live up to our international obligations (we are well below the numbers of able bodied men and women necessary to meet even our current peacekeeping commitments) and protect Canadian sovereignty. That's of course opposed to Moore's repeated interference in our election process. Not that I really have a problem with people, or even Moore, speaking their minds, just that if there was ever a case of the pot calling the kettle black, this is it.

Even so, the US admins requests to me are like a next door neighbor who has allowed you to use his snowblower for the past 20 years, as well as his minivan whenever you need to bring your kids to soccer practice, all the while you spend your money on large screen TVs and a new paint job every other year, finally asking you to pay your fair share. He's even willing to allow you to still use the snowblower and van as long as you at least help pay for gas and upkeep. Hardly an unreasonable request.

It's time for us Canadians to finally step up and reclaim our position of respect on the world stage, and as it was the Liberals who managed to get us pushed into the background in the first place, let's just say I have little faith in their ability to lead us anywhere except further into the realm of irrelevance.
