Many political and societal views seem to work much like a pendulum: They get more & more extreme in one direction and then a critical mass of people gets fed up, pushes back, and everything swings in the other direction. But the question is, have things gotten too extreme yet or will there be more Clown World behavior in 2020? Interested in your thoughts, SDA readers.
So now we know. Now we know what happens when you declare war on democracy. Now we know the consequences of demeaning the largest democratic vote in a nation’s history. Now we know what becomes of a political class that sneers at voters, silences their democratic voice, and libels them as racist, xenophobic know-nothings who cannot be trusted with stewardship of the nation. You get punished. You get rebelled against. You get replaced. Last night, in those extraordinary election results, we witnessed the revenge of democracy.
Just wanted you to know that I received my gas bill today (first sizeable bill this winter from Enbridge/formerly Union Gas), wherein I have been charged the 13% H.S.T. (Ontario) on the Federal Carbon Tax.
Call me crazy, as you like, but that appears to me to be a tax on tax. Hell, I thought Doug Ford was going to do away with this kind of thing, which, as it happens, needs to happen, now!
It’s nothing but a grab, and the quicker everybody in Ontario understands this insanity, the sooner we’ll have a new country!

Imagine if Trudeau or Scheer had constantly made fun of Singh’s religion to hurt him politically—Demanding to know if he believed in reincarnation, if he REALLY thought God cares about haircuts etc. Would this be any different than hounding Scheer about what he thinks is “a sin?”
The Brexit drama in Britain is fascinating. It has exposed many on the Left and the Elitist Right as having no interest in respecting the will of the people. Lest anyone forget, a legally binding referendum was held on June 23, 2016 and a majority of voters decided that Britain should leave the EU. There has been no hint that the voting was improper. It was always known that a simple majority of 50% + 1 was sufficient to trigger Brexit. So why is there any dispute now of Britain departing the EU?
As those of us on this side of the Atlantic have learned over our lifetimes, Leftists don’t often respect democracy. So many of them have the hearts of totalitarian thugs and believe that anyone who disagrees with their vision of utopia is misguided, mentally ill, or evil, so the votes of such people don’t really count.
The attitudes of the Elitist Right is something that this blogger had dismissed as not so common up until this point. How very wrong yours truly has been. It seems clear that such people really do believe that they are better, smarter, and wiser than you and me. This “democracy” thing is a nice illusion for the unwashed but we, the noble elites, know what is best for our country and shall impose our enlightened will on the nation.

This is precisely why I have said that the oil companies have committed CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY! All the factors are there: KNOWLEDGE of the truth and DELIBERATE action to CONCEAL (“becloud”) the truth to save their profits while preparing to protect themselves! Nuremberg worthy! https://t.co/cvc39UKq7z
