Bleeding Canada dry…

This is not a political blog. It’s personal and all about well-being.
That said, the election in Canada on October 19th is personal and it’s all about the well-being of millions of people who aren’t millionaires, not even close. So, I think, we all must admit that everything is political…in times like these.

I’m no political pundit, but this…

speaks for me and millions of others.

In case you’d like to join me in this song, here are the lyrics:
1 Not so long ago I can still remember how this country used to make me smile
But Steve knew if he had the chance he’d make it all about finance
And hoped we wouldn’t notice for a while
He went ahead no questions asked and all the bills that he has passed
were bad news for the climate and he kept the scientists quiet
It really makes me want to cry how he treats the veterans and retired
can’t speak without it being a lie, it makes us terrified

Bye bye Mr Harper goodbye
With your psychopathic ways and your evil eyes
If you had your way you’d bleed Canada dry
As a leader you don’t qualify
So Mr Harper goodbye

2 So you renamed the government and on the jets you overspent
And doesn’t seem to care
You let our economy collapse while losing billions of our cash
You just can’t seem to find it anywhere
We know that Steve he loves his oil
to get it he will wreck our soil
he loves his pipeline plans and he doesn’t give a damn
He’s a greedy grey haired, smiling schmuck
Bu we hope he’s run out of luck cause he really doesn’t give a —                                                       we must toss him aside


3. For 10 years you’ve been prime minister and expenses grow on your senators
you said you didn’t know
When Duffy he stood up in court and said by Nigel he’d been bought
and all the accusations start to flow
you won’t answer questions unless we pay cause you’ve got nothing left to say
The courtroom’s been adjourned you don’t even seem concerned
How many times can you break the law and carry on as before
and now it seems you want a war, can we get off this ride


4. I think that we can all agree we really need our CBC
And not a state run radio
And C51 oh what the heck, we need to protest so don’t forget
the people are the ones you’re working for
So where do we go to vote, fair elections say they can’t promote
no signage anywhere, do you really think that’s fair
No more Harper government, that name will be irrelevant
back to a name more permanent, that belongs to Canada


5. October 19th is the day that we can go and ask for change
I hope we have some happy news
Together we all need to vote to so we can have some little hope and
Proportional representation’s what we need
In the city streets we’re all aware that kids need help not the millionaires
the votes they’ve been all stolen, this system is so broken
The people I admire the most are the ones that help the poorer folks
Give refuge to the ones with hopes
We need to feel some pride.

Final Chorus
We” be singin’ Bye bye Mr Harper goodbye
With your psychopathic ways and your evil eyes
We won’t let you bleed Canada dry
So Mr Harper goodbye
