There is much to write about as it relates to what is going on in our country, but to be honest with you I'm fed up with what I'm seeing. The juvenile, partisan junk thrown at us today by Van Loan was just too much to take, as was the lapping up of the of the pap by the media. So, I'll save my tirade for the weekend when I'm hopefully a little less angry.
Instead, I'll supply this for your viewing pleasure. I don't necessarily support Obama but I want some, just a smidge, of the hope he speaks of, here in Canada. That hope would be a return to a sane, balanced government that provides for people. I want that to seep over the border and I want the Liberals to seize on it.
The intent of that comment of course is not meant to reflect the messenger, because neither Dion nor Harper are that kind of orator. It is intended to reflect the message though and someone that can convey passion for his country. It's clear that it's not Harper.
I know the vid is not new and in as much that many say it's a good idea in politics to stay away from pop stars, whatever genre, at this moment in time I disagree. Don't be who you aren't, but invite those through your message who may speak your message to reiterate it in a context that will be heard to youth. 'Calling all artists'.
