Why this socialist will vote for Harper #elxn42

For the past 50 years, my inner socialist has been my moral compass.

It has guided me in politics and in my writing.

Two prison terms by successive military dictatorships in Pakistan did not break my resolve.

It was the 1960s. On one side were the Islamists, backed by the U.S.

On the other, a motley coalition of social democrats, liberals, communists, socialists and trade unionists, of which I was a part.

    Those horrible Americans were backing anti-communists in the 1960’s!
    What were they thinking?
    Is he disappointed that Pakistan didn’t get their own Shah?
    Sorry Pakis, you are not Shah-worthy!

    Back when the National debt was about $15 billion , is was Trudeau that was on the evening News to opine on Canada ‘s wealth and greatness and freely said that ” Canada is so rich that a person could go through their entire life and NEVER have to get a job”.

    This is still true today but with a Debt of $630,000,000,000.00 Federally and almost $300,000,000,000.00 for Ontario alone……… the Liberal ponze scheme will soon implode like ENRON and BRE-X which will cause rampant suicides to confirm Trudeau’s view that THEY didn’t have to work for their entire life .
    But they will never see their Old age as the Politicians will from gorging at the taxpayers Trough while they hid their wealth outside of Canada like Paul Martin did.

    Mr. Fatah,

    I’m afraid this is the end result of the leftist ideology. The Barbarians always win in the end. If the left were smart they would learn from history but they would rather re-write it. And in trying to insulate themselves from the consequences and harsh truth of life that conflict with their feelings and pleasures they, like your farmer, invite the very destruction they tried to avoid. This story is as banal and old as when it was written “For what I fear comes upon me, And what I dread befalls me.”

    My condolences,
