From a Canadian perspective, and particularly from a Québécois one, I couldn’t care less about the US presidential campaign. Don’t get me wrong, we like the average American folks, but their administrations, whether they be Democrat or Republican, are invariably anti-Canadian, breaking every treaty or agreement and thinking that their northern neighbour doesn’t matter.
People are generally quite dumb, when compared to animals, because the latter make much better use of their brains. But people get really dumb when an election has been called. As soon as everyone’s off to the races, people switch off even the little bit of brains they have – or rely on others to do so.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper enjoys talking about the tax cuts he’s so generally bestowed upon Canadians since 2006, but none of it is true… and his nose is growing longer and longer (and his pants must also be getting quite hot).
