P is for POLITICS

POLITICS! Everywhere here in Canada the talk has been nothing but POLITICS. Monday, May 2nd was our national election and there was a lot of controversy about it. The Liberal and New Democratic PARTIES overthrew the government, forcing an election, and most of the country was horrified. After all, it's the fourth national election in seven years! Usually, the PRIME MINISTER is in POWER for four years, just like the American PRESIDENT. For more information about our POLITICAL scandal click here. It's a very good, yet brief overview of how Canadian and American POLITICS and government differ. PERSONALLY, I think Stephen Harper is the best PERSON for the job right now. He's an economist and has been able to keep Canada's economic situation stronger than a lot of other countries right now. In fact, our dollar is now equal to or worth more than the American dollar. The leaders of the other PARTIES PROMISED so much, but I wonder who they thought was going to PAY for these PROMISES. Mr. Harper may not appear to be the flashiest leader, but he's an extremely intelligent, hard-working man and his PLATFORMS have helped to keep our country in a PRIME POSITION to be a force in world POLITICS. For example, Canadian soldiers have been in Afghanistan all these years helping to fight the war on terror, and 155 of our brave soldiers have died in this PUSH FOR PEACE. Time will tell how Canada's POLITICAL situation will PAN out. Even though this election has cost our country $300 million, I am POSITIVE that Canada will continue to move forward with Stephen Harper leading a majority government with his PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE PARTY!
