“the fountains of the Great Deep burst apart and the floodgates of heaven broke open” and rain fell for forty days and forty nights until the highest mountains were covered 15 cubits, and all earth-based life perished …”
Numerous cultures speak of the great flood that wiped out all that had become evil and corrupt, so that life could begin anew. Judaic Christian Bible references 40 days and 40 nights – which happens to be the exact time frame chosen for the upcoming Canadian federal election.
Is the plight of Canada so dire that it will require a metaphorical ‘flood’ of votes to obliterate the corruption and the cronyism that has infected Parliament and the Canadian government?
The short answer is Yes.
The longer answer is Yes.
Caveat: Until yesterday, I served in a capacity wherein my musings, observations and opinions could justifiably seen as partisan based, since I was Regional Co-ordinator for the People’s Party of Canada in BC until my resignation from that position yesterday.
Today, I am mostly freed of that ‘stigma’ and am able to opine and reflect without the underlying perceived responsibility of representing ‘party over principle’.
I resigned on ‘principle’ and yet principle is the ultimate reason I supported, and continue to support, Maxime Bernier and his fledgling People’s Party of Canada. From the very day that Max Bernier announced he was leaving the Conservative Party of Canada based on his own principles, I chose to follow Max’s strong ‘principled’ decision, sending in my own resignation to the CPC that very same day. The very first post on this website is my extensive letter of resignation addressed to Andrew Scheer – and the reasons offered for that resignation more than one year ago are disturbingly even more valid today.
Has Maxime Berner created the ‘perfect panacea’ for political malaise and corruption via his singular creation, the People’s Party of Canada?
Of course not, but that is because all political parties are necessarily made up of people, and there is no force on earth more capable of screwing things up than an aggregation of people.
A camel is a horse designed by a committee. This term demonstrates the flaws inherent in a project that has many designers involved but no unifying plan or vision. (Wikipedia, Design by Committee)
This term, Design by Committee, is quite probably the biggest single factor in the ‘needless complexity, inconsistency, logical flaws, and yes, lack of unifying vision‘ (again attributed to Wikipedia) evident to astute Canadians when we individually and collectively assess the ridiculously inconsistent, virtue signalling, vote buying pandering of virtually all established political parties, but specifically the Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Greens.
What is diametrically opposite to this dogma?
This democratic design process is in contrast to autocratic design, where the project leader decides on the design.
The difference is, that in an autocratic style, members of the organizations are not included and the final outcome is the responsibility of the leader. (Wikipedia on Design by Committee)
Going into the 2019 Canadian Federal Election, this autocratic design is literally the unassailable, irrefutable position of the People’s Party of Canada going into this 40 day purge and potential renewal process in our Canadian democracy.
I make these assertions as one who actually, at the moment, prefers Maxime Bernier’s unquestionable autocratic design of the People’s Party of Canada to the dysfunctional chaos and inconsistency of the remainder of the political parties contesting for the right to govern in the imminent 2019 federal election.
At this moment, the People’s Party of Canada is an autocracy.
At this moment, the People’s Party of Canada does not have a constitution (or by-laws) created by, and supported by, a majority of the party’s members.
At this moment, there is a ‘dearth of due process’ that has allowed any number of errors in execution and judgement to be ignored, at the discretion of a virtual cabal of unelected organizers and administrators who are accountable to no one but themselves and ultimately their leader, Maxime Bernier.
At this moment, highly qualified candidates who have been attracted to the PPC are running highly credible campaigns in highly winnable ridings throughout Canada.
At this moment, incredibly unqualified candidates who have been attracted to the PPC are running highly dis-credible campaigns in ridings where their chances of winning are justifiably nil, or next to it.
With all of those factors in play, why am I still of the firm belief that Maxime Bernier, and his People’s Party of Canada, is still the best (perhaps only) viable option for Canadians who value the foundational values and principles that created the Confederation of Canada? Those same values and principles that have sustained Canada, its progress and its future through generations and decades?
Simply because far too many of those foundational values and principles are under attack.
Under attack by globalists from virtually all of the traditional parties, the Liberals and Conservatives (who have almost morphed into an indistinguishable amalgam), the NDP who are ‘off the charts’ socialists and the Greens who are ‘climate zealot’ pretenders trying to fool Canadians into believing that they (the Greens) are anything other than a single agenda political entity, a ‘one trick pony’.
Against all of them, individually and combined, we have Maxime Bernier and the People’s Party of Canada – warts and all.
Is the current iteration of the People’s Party of Canada the perfect ‘remedy for what ails Canada’?
No. But it is probably as close as it is going to get going into this October 21, 2019 election.
In spite of the unassailable fact the the People’s Party of Canada is currently an autocracy, the brainchild and construct of Maxime Bernier and his inner circle, this autocracy, on balance, succeeds where the other contesting federal parties fail.
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, is committed to sovereignty.
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, is committed to economic growth through laissez faire, ‘hands off’ policies, including eliminating corporate welfare.
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, is determined to wrest power from globalists, specifically the unelected United Nations, and return decision-making to elected Members of Parliament.
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, is committed to Free Speech and Freedom of Assembly.
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, recognizes that Canada will succeed through Unity more so than ‘diversity’ (which is often nothing more than a virtue signalling invitation to create tribalism within Canada).
The PPC, under Maxime Bernier, will commit to ensuring the best interests of Canadians are considered first and foremost – ahead of the interests of citizens of other countries that must elect their own governments to ensure the preservation of their own interests.
Do I believe that the People’s Party of Canada must, in due course, move from an autocracy into a representative, or direct, democracy? Yes, but with a strong caveat.
Under no circumstances can the leadership of the People’s Party of Canada fall into the same trap that has hopelessly compromised the traditional political parties, in Canada, as well as elsewhere.
The founding principles and values of the People’s Party of Canada MUST be enshrined – and protected, constitutionally. (This is the only document, the United State Constitution, that has saved the USA countless times from descending into the corrupt malaise of most other nations).
From now until the results of the October 2019 election, I am turning my efforts away from assisting in the organization and growth of the People’s Party of Canada. I have accomplished all that I was able within the current iteration of the PPC. I will not return unless, and until, some problematic deficiencies are remedied.
I will now be concentrating on exposing the ‘dog’s breakfast of political inconsistencies and outright obscenities’ that dominate the current Canadian election landscape.
This website, and the whimsical ‘dogzbreakfast.com’ will be populated to expose and highlight matters of import to all Canadians as we move into this vitally important political decision on October 21, 2019.
The Liberals are corrupt – and cannot be trusted to govern Canada. They are, in fact, led by a spoiled, ignorant manchild in Justin Trudeau who wants to be the ‘first post-national Prime Minister in Canadian history’.
The Conservatives are led by a weak, malleable Andrew Scheer whose nickname ‘Pandering Andy’ is well-deserved as he has moved the Conservatives far left of their traditional base. Globalism is still an accepted outcome for Scheer and the current iteration of the Conservative Party.
The NDP, socialist at inception and even more so under the misguidance of Jagmeet Singh, is a dysfunctional internal train-wreck that can never be foisted on unsuspecting Canadians.
The Greens are led (?) by Elizabeth May, an absolute zealot with a messiah-complex, who would bludgeon and bulldoze Canada into economic and social ruin in her pursuit of her fairy tale green fantasy. May has announced that the very future of the world is at stake if she, and her minions, are not elected. We have run out of time, according to May. Such fear-mongerers can never been given the reins of power.
Finally, we arrive at Maxime Bernier, a singular force in Canadian politics, who had the courage (and the audacity) to leave a political party where he carried all but one percent of the necessary votes to lead the CPC, who announced a new political force (the PPC) and who autocratically carved out policies, principles and a platform that he believes is in the best interests of Canadians – and our individual and collective future.
Why do I support Maxime Bernier?
Because I trust him to maintain his principles, his vision and his resolve.
Has Maxime Bernier created the ‘perfect’ political party to contest this election?
Of course not. He had, does not have, nor will he have, the necessary resources, both human and monetary. He does not, and will not, have the time to muster those resources fully in time for the imminent election.
What he does have is my trust.
I trust him to ‘fix what’s broke’, both within his own formative party, and also to ‘fix what’s broke’ in Canada, as a result of too many bad decisions and outside influences that have eroded Canadian sovereignty and well-being.
Every time Canadians step up and place their constitutionally enshrined vote in a ballot box, we are demonstrating faith in the democratic process – and trust in the individual whose name is on that ballot.
In a perfect world I would not choose to support an autocrat, unless I have the faith and belief that such an individual truly has my best interests at heart – and is committed to protecting them.
Maxime Bernier will NOT be an autocrat after this election as the PPC presumably moves toward the democratic processes that will be necessary to protect the interests and the political will of the 45,000 and growing Canadians who helped create the fastest growing federal political party in Canadian history.
Hopefully, Maxime Bernier will be a democratic ‘force of nature’ that is the harbinger of the great flood of principled politicians with personal integrity that will rebuild Canada after this necessary, vital election to allow ‘the heavens to break open and all politically corrupted globalist-based life in Canada will (metaphorically) perish …‘
Over the next few posts, we will examine what is right (and very much what is WRONG) with the federal political parties vying for your all-important vote.
