Stephan Harper Is Canada's 'Richard Nixon'

"The historian Garry Wills once observed that Richard Nixon wanted to be president not to govern the nation but to undermine the government. The Nixon presidency was one long counterinsurgency campaign against key American institutions like the courts, the FBI, the state department and the CIA. Harper has the same basic approach to politics: attack not just political foes but the very institutions that make governing possible. The state for Nixon and Harper exists not as an instrument of policy making but as an alien force to be subdued.
Canadians have never had a prime minister who has literally made his career attacking and undermining the legitimacy of Canadian institutions. Until now."

Excellent post - thank you!

I thought the authors were pretty accurate in their comparisons and analysis.

It's about time some more people started waking up to this fact.
I've been saying this from before the last election.

What was once an expectation has become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Good catch!

Stephen Harper HATES Canada (at least the way it is now)

I have been saying pretty much the same thing for a long time. One of my blog labels is "Stephen Harper Is Richard Nixon". Good to see others see Psycho Steve as I do.

I'm doing a series on the electiona nd totally agree with the Harper/Nixon parallel: http://t.co/CCF7j9H
