This pretty much sums it up

This pretty much sums up how I feel about politics in Canada

We need an adult at the wheel

As I expected the bias media would once again live up to their despicable role in this country. The taxpayer funded CBC couldn't seem to resist dragging in an innocent bystander to the latest political embarrassment to happen to this country. Stephen Harper can hardly be blamed for smirking as he watched the guy he warned us "wasn't ready" prove him to be absolutely correct.

The whole incident was a show of how the entitled act when given access to power. In many ways Trudeau is very much a child, sad because at this time and place we need an adult at the wheel.

Leadership isn't about power

I've held off commenting on the situation that took place in Ottawa to give myself a chance to think about the situation rationally.

What strikes me is that nobody realizes that this is what we've come to. I actually don't blame Justin Trudeau as an individual, I blame a dysfunctional system. It's dysfunctional because we've allowed it to deteriorate into a pile of rubble.

What we saw in the House of Commons yesterday was a metaphor of how far things have devolved. Somewhere along the line people began to compromise their principles. It's those principles that allow us to differentiate ourselves from animals.

Democracy is manipulated by people that seek power; it's the manipulators that need to sit a few plays out. Leadership isn't about power, it's about compassion.
