This evening while posting a vote on Greatwire, I came across this poignant narrative and thought it warranted sharing. The merits of its content are sobering.

First off, let me tell you I’m Canadian living in Nova Scotia, the welfare state of the country.
We voted in our socialist Prime Minister around the time I was born. His name was Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He was first elected in the mid sixties, and was in power off and on for at least fifteen years (we don’t have term limits, unfortunately). He was primarily responsible for making Canada the socialist basket case that it is today. Barack Obama is your Trudeau. I really hope that you Americans have the good sense to reject him. He will be disastrous to not only the USA, but the world, as it’s obvious that the USA’s economy leads the world, so we’re all screwed if the USA goes under. The only reason that Canada can still stay afloat now is because the USApretty much supports us. If you go down, we go down. Therefore, your new president is our new president as well, in a manner of speaking.
Anyway, my $0.02, which is likely how much it’s really worth today….
