Bitching and Whining Won’t Keep Kevin O’Leary Off Parliament Hill — The $15 (Canadian) Solution
[Originally posted on CerebralGrit.blogspot.com on January 19, 2017]
On the eve of Trump’s inauguration, let us Canadians try to not lose on a replay.
We’ve been here before (Rob Ford), we’ve watched the impending travesty in the U.S. with Trump, and for less than the cost of rodent repellant, you can nip this new pest in the bud.
Kevin O’Leary can join the race for leadership of the Conservatives, but there’s no guarantee he will win. And you can participate in making that failure a reality.
Join the Conservative party for one year for $15 and do it before March 28. Then vote against him on May 27th. I just joined this morning.
This guy isn’t remotely interested in being the Prime Minister of Canada. Anything along those lines is transcendent bullshit. He’s just another ego-in-search-of-a bigger-soapbox in a soulless parade of vanity and ambition. Give him the leadership of the Conservatives and you’ll be able to see the Canadian version of Trump’s political Ponzi scheme play out in front of you.
In today’s Globe and Mail, it states plainly that even if he does win the leadership, he may even continue appearing in his state-side reality TV show. This kind of audacity worked in the US because 92,671,979 voters were a combination of disbelieving and, frankly, too lazy to get off their asses and get to a voting booth.
If you need more backstory, Arlene Dickinson handily nails him in her CBC interview this morning
Can this be any more obvious?
Hoping O’Leary goes away won’t stop him.
Complaining about O’Leary won’t stop him.
Doing nothing won’t stop him.
Here are the details of the easy, affordable solution.
Step 1: Go to: https://donate.conservative.ca/membership
Step 2: Join the Conservative Party for 1 year BEFORE MARCH 28, 2017.
Step 3; The PCs will mail you a ballot for their May 27 leadership election.
Step 4: Vote strategically against Kevin O’Leary.
Here’s all it takes to qualify (which can be translated into being nothing more than Canadian, carbon-based and having a street address):
- I am a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent resident of Canada.
- I actively support the founding principles of the CPC.
- I am at least 14 years of age.
- I do not hold membership in another federal political party.
You won’t have to travel to vote. In fact, you won’t even have to leave you own home. It’s easier than voting in a regular election.
It’s that simple.
It’s that easy.
It’s that important.
