I want to talk about a few themes today. Let`s talk ISIS. Is it worth Canada and the U.S investing huge military contributions to eradicate this terrorist group? No it is not. ISIS is another small terrorist group that has risen to the media because of its beheadings in public. We must take into consideration that this group is no more effective than the Hamas or Hezbollah when it comes to war except that the fear mongering has erupted because of their violent tendencies. Destroying this group will take at least a decade if indeed they are ever destroyed. We will lose plenty of Canadians for nothing because if they are eventually eradicated another group will come in its place. Let the groups in the Middle East fight it out. Contributions of food and guns is reasonable to fight off these groups but actuallyu offering our soldiers is outrageous. Another reason for voting out Harper. Talking about Harper, today I learned that Harper is the only head of state to reject a U.N statute protecting the rights of the indigenous people while he has destroyed the environmental laws in Canada. However, there is a good chance the illiterates of Canada will vote him back in as they did for Rob Ford even though he is a blatant racist and exhibits other weird behavior. Vote out Harper and put pressure on Obama to stop the madness.
