The opinion piece below was written by my good friend, KSP. It is posted here with permission:
It seems I was right and Harper pulled an election to avoid this. It happened a little faster than he expected though and he can’t turn back. That military takeover is a distinct possibility; that may explain PMSH’s confidence and the fact his people are not campaigning; he doesn’t worry about local ridings chances at all. I still say he is sure the US will take us over, when their civil unrest hits the streets. Bush will keep him in power as his personal puppet. Remember Harper allowed the armed forces to sign a deal in February that he will supply soldiers to th US if they rebel and the US will do the same for him. As things stand in the marketpalce, all this could happen before the election in November. Why else would they appoint that bimbo Palin, to distract the public? McCain will not be reelected, Bush will not leave office. He can declare himself Commander in chief in times of trouble, declare Martial Law and that’s it. Of course, the following bloodbath will be horrid to behold, when all the poor hungry people go on a rampage with their guns ablaze. The 800 FEMA concentration camps will come in mighty handy. (Google FEMA concentration camps). I am hoping they will be too busy with their problems to bother with Canada for the time being. (They also have another possible scenario, start another war. Either Pakistan or Iran will do.)
The only chance we have to get out ot this is to elect Dion. He may be able to ward off a collapse here by nationalizing the financial system and put the Bank of Canada in charge. Their mandate is or precisely was, to keep Canada safe and prosperous. The act says the bank can lend money from future projected revenue and lend to the banks and businesses at minimal rates. Which means the interest goes back to the government and foreign bankers cannot charge high interest rates set by their private owners like the FED and take money out of the country and bleed it dry. He is not a corporate hack, he is a professor and he has a vision. If he becomes PM, his own party people will have to follow his lead, much like they did Trudeau. He will have the power to implement his vision which will be to make Canada as good a country as Sweden. I actually think he can do it. Of course, a major civil war in the US will help greatly, 10% of Americans know this is coming and are armed to the teeth because of it. Most of them have been hoarding food, ammunition and gold for such an emergency. (Ten percent is 30 million very angry patriotic citizens.) This will be the first time a government tries to take over a nation with more ammo than the military. I can’t say I can predict which side would win. However, a 1798 type revolution where the upper class was guillotined might happen here with the Senate, Congress and the Banking members enjoying similarly effective poetic justice.
Since a currency crash might affect our banking system it may be advisable to keep some cash at home for emergencies. Food for a few months might help too. This is too big to predict and anything could happen. I am hoping that since a great many governments know about this impending disaster, they might have devised a system to act when a crash occurs. Because th US dollar is the reserve currency of the world everyone will be equally affected. China is threatening to pull away from US dollars and nobody is buying US Treasuries anymore. They are very close to a meltdown. The minute the dollar stops being the reserve currency the dollar will crash. The consequences are too long to explain; suffice it to say it will be disastrous for the US and to all the poorer countries without vast resources like Canada. We must put all effort in this election to get Dion into power; he alone has the vision and brainpower to find a solution to this unmitigated mess. If not, heaven help us all.
I am not paranoid or a lunatic, but everything seems to point in this direction. Hope I am wrong. I base these thoughts on my extensive reading and my vast knowledge of history. Also having been born under a Nazi regime and witnessing the takeover of the Communists in 1948; I think my judgment is fairly reasonable. I knew about the coming meltdown over 2 years ago. KSP

In the past few weeks the press has been overly negative, as if promoting a very well educated, good man to run this country would be bad for us. I would like to mention that the spin on his image as a weak leader is utter rubbish. In Canada the word Prime Minister means just that, first minister of the many elected able members. It does not mean a dictator, it means first among equals. In an educated society, especially where the baby boomers outnumber the young, why would we need a younger dogmatic ideologue to decide things for us? Are the people that built this country since the Second World War incapable of making decisions about what is good for ourselves? Do we really think we have a president in the making? … [Read more here]
