Welcome to the DumpHarper! commentary weblog and archives brought to you by the Canadians Against the Harper Regime [CAHR] Collective Research Collaboration. CAHR is an open, diverse, non-partisan, uncensored and unbiased group of socially conscious and concerned citizens from Canada actively engaging in constructive dialog to better our Nation. While we do not necessarily agree on specific singular issues, we do understand how these trends towards the authoritarian far-right spectrum will affect all of us.
At this point, we must collectively acknowledge that the ideological Harper Regime “majority” has embarked upon several uncharted war paths in many directions with zero economic plan within any of their budgets to adequately fund these misadventures. One does not require a degree in mathematics or economics to understand that Harper’s opaque vision may well sacrifice the peace, prosperity and security of many future generations for very short term political and economic benefits.
Issues of utmost concern: Constitution vs. Mandate, Social vs. Corporate Responsibility, Public vs. Private Healthcare, Government Transparency vs. Suspicious Opacity, Ideology vs. Reality, Poverty vs. Economy, Jobs vs. Education, Civil Rights vs. Immigration, Politics vs. Influence, Corruption vs. Status Quo, Security vs. Prosperity, Free Trade vs. Environment, Foreign Policy vs. Domestic Policy, etc.
Selling “war on” something with cheap propaganda is one easy thing on one visible hand, paying for “war on” one thing encompasses many difficult things within an opaque and hidden hand. Now multiply reality and then add the broader collateral damages.
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower (17 January 1961) Farewell address to the Nation.
As noted in Ike’s quote above, this collaboration is only one small cog in a complex system exploring global governance within systems of domestic governments. therefore we encourage everyone to create smaller groups of like-minded individuals, collaborate together about common issues, identify causes and create sustainable solutions. We must always keep in mind that many Canadians are left out or left behind due to various reasons, personal, professional, private, transportation, time, economic, family, disability, etc. This is merely a representation of one hub of communication for the voiceless.
