The Liberal Party is one big family

Err... this is "controversial" "mudslinging"?

Leaving aside the empirical truth that socialist government in and of itself is a vast protection racket and confidence game subverting entire societies: how naive would a person of otherwise normal intelligence have to be to imagine that millions, billions of dollars of crooked cash -- in cash -- can be thrown around illegally without the mob being or becoming heavily involved?

Now I'm not accusing anybody or any Party of anything specific, so you Liberal lawyers can crawl back under your comfy rocks. But without the mob and serious criminal deeds yet uncovered, it seems to me like there's a big puzzle piece of motivation missing. How else to explain the unhinged, ridiculous, infra dignitatem determination of these people to hold on to power?

Deposing the Liberals will give Canadians the opportunity to find out what that is all about -- above and beyond stopping it. Will that happen, or will these people escape punishment like their spiritual forebears of the Eastern bloc?

From Thursday's almost hope-inspiring debate in the House of Commons on the non-confidence motion.

Mr. Paul Szabo (Mississauga South, Lib.):...
In his speech the member referred to corruption and he ascribed it to the Liberal Party, but did not once ascribe it to the Liberal government. He was very careful to do that. Since Gomery cannot find criminal liability, will the member confirm to the House that he intends to support the charter, the rule of law, the presumption of innocence and the right to due process, which all parties involved in the Gomery commission have not had as yet?

Hon. Stephen Harper: Madam Speaker, I almost like that question.


After Justice Gomery spent all this money and heard all these witnesses, he determined that the Liberal Party played a central role in the sponsorship scandal and that in fact the Liberal Party was the linchpin of the sponsorship scandal. It was the only entity or agent that conceived the program, ran the program and benefited from the program. Is the member seriously suggesting that the people of Canada would wait to remove the government from office only when its leading officials are carted off to jail in handcuffs? Surely we all believe that the people of Canada have higher standards of political accountability than that.
