So now there are talks about some Liberals wanting to merge with the NDP, according to what was reported on something on the television about a week ago. Bob Rae was on and when he was asked about it, he said no and Justin Trudeau the son of the departed former Prime Minister P.E. Trudeau said it was worth talking about. Bob Rae is against that because he has been saying all this time that he wants to rebuild the Liberal party. I get the impression that if he can rebuild the party that he would position himself as being the first to be elected by the party to be their full time leader. By joining the with NDP, he would be out of luck. After all he left that party for what he considered greener pastures.
I don’t think it would be a good idea for the NDP to take on joining with the Liberals. The NDP were elected to do away with the Bloc and the Liberals. If the NDP were to join with the Liberals I believe in the next election there would not be to many left in both of those parties and the Conservatives would become the national party of Canada and that’s exactly what Harper wants.
I really believe if that was to pass, this country would become a country run by a dictator. That's because of all the news that came out previous to the last election about him restraining the others in his party from speaking to the media and that it would have to go by him first. This is one way of saying you work for me and I want to know what is given to the media.
I can understand that there are things that are said and done in the government that should not go out to the public because there could be some misunderstanding or it could get reported the wrong way which could cause a lot of trouble. But if you can’t trust the people working for you why are they being kept?
I’m anxious for the next election to come around.
That’s my rant of today
