According to a media report Prime Minister Stephen Harper is more concerned with "God's verdict" than he is with what historians will ultimately say about his government.
Well it was a pretty damn poor job of representing God's interests, not to mention Canada's. By all the evidence Harper can't even be called a real conservative. He is a Neo-conservative, a bastardized, illegitimate offshoot of conservatism that gives lip service to social conservative principles, but in reality cares nothing about them.
They are simply used as device to hold together a political demographic, while the entire concentration and political impulse of the government is towards radical Free Market economic liberalism.
Abortion, embryonic stem cell research, homosexual affirmation with all their caustic and disassembling effects on the Canadian nation have all made advances under his government, and he really couldn't care less.
Any real conservative knows that.. classic free market liberal (or libertarian) economics.. Free Trade, Monetarism, deregulation and privatization, rule by financial institutions and the global investment organism.. is an athema to conservative economic principles which always stress the Nation and responsible, peace, order and good governance over rampant, stampeding Capitalism.
Harper is a dullard and a phony, and i expect he'll get tossed out on his ear in the autumn, even if only by another equally corrosive minority government which represents no real alternative.. and will leave absolutely nothing but economic and social turmoil in his wake.
