Harper ‘forced’ into election

Re: Election to be bitterly fought, Margaret Evans, Chilliwack Progress, March 29.

Yes this is going to be a bitterly fought election, the fourth in seven years. As usual you don’t explain the bitter hatred that the Eastern Oligarchy has for anyone from the West especially a Western prime minister. You accuse Harper of wanting this election, which he was forced into, if anything the Oligarchs decided long before the budget that the government had to come down.

Sure Harper would have liked a majority last election; I sincerely hope he gets a landslide majority.  Ignatieff can go back to Harvard, Doucette can go to Quebec (by the way what is he doing in federal politics?), and Layton can go back home.

That Harper wanted this election, I don’t think so. At least Harper is cautiously trying to rebuild the economy, trying to reform our ridiculous “justice system.” He is not promising billions of dollars as Ignatieff and Layton are promising, or did Ignatieff find the $20 million that the Liberal party “lost”.

The cupboard is bare so where do the Oligarchs plan to get this money from? Oh yeah, increase taxes, corporate taxes to let us think the Oligarchs care, this is just a cynical ploy to blind us, the tax payers. What do you think the corporations will do?

Doucette’s plan is to bleed the stupid Canadians dry; then separate anyway. The Oligarchs care very little for Canada and even less for the west. We are nothing but cash cows for them, if they cared so much for Canada they would have tried to co-operate with Harper.

True, Harper is spending billions of dollars on prisons and fighter jet planes. We send our young men overseas to fight for us and keep us free and safe we had better provide them with up-to-date, decent and safe equipment. You can be sure that Al Quaeda spends top dollar for the best. We want our young men home, alive not in a body bag. Or you and I can discuss Harper’s spending in an Al Quaeda concentration camp.

As for the prisons, since our bleeding heart judges make life so comfortable for these miscreants they have to be placed somewhere. Maybe you would take in a “poor” prisoner. Maybe the Oligarchs will take one in. Ever since the Conservatives got in power there has been a concerted effort by the Oligarchs to get rid of them. I guess common sense is well and truly dead; which Harper tried to practice.

Who’s going to pay for this unwanted election, certainly not the Oligarchs? Since Ignatieff, Doucette, and Layton forced this election, they and their parties should pay for it, not the beleaguered tax payers. Harper has been blamed for everything these selfish, totalitarian spendthrifts could think of, while ignoring theft, cronyism, and illegal patronage that they themselves have indulged in.

So here is my question, why did the east, especially Quebec get most of the money and jobs while we out west lost a lot of ours, where oh where is the $20 million the Liberal government “lost”?
