I will be talking politics occasionally over the next couple of months as we are about to have an election here in Canada soon. So I'm just giving the word up that if you are left-wing you'll probably just want to skip these posts.
I watched McCain's acceptance speech the other night and was just blown away with it. What an amazing man, with such character and vision. I found myself clapping when he talked about education.
I'm not what you could particularly call a politically minded person and I could easily get in over my head but I do know what I believe in.
I asked my husband why we couldn't have politicians here in Canada who make speeches like that and he said because they would be ridiculed. There is no way a Canadian politician could talk about being a war hero or talk about patriotism. If you are a patriotic Canadian then people automatically assume you're a redneck.
Our greatest Canadian patriot is Don Cherry, a hockey commentator, and the 'elite' of Canada (ie.left-wing liberal media) make fun of him because he is so patriotic.
Hopefully, Harper will win a majority government this time around and Canada can continue to regain respect worldwide since he has put money into our previous shambles of a military. I know of what I speak, being an army wife in my younger days.
