Stephen Harper's Silence On The Tea Party Is An Endorsement Of Their Tactics And Beliefs

While the Republicans (especially the fanatical Teaparty wing) played Chicken with the US economy, we didn't hear one word from Harper. Remember a few months back when Harper cautioned that an election 'was a threat to Canada's economic recovery'. Yet when the Teaparty actually threatened the Canadian economy, Harper had nothing to say.

Well, let's look at what he has said when he wasn't the PM. (Excuse me Harper, but your Teaparty ideology is showing):

"Canada is a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it. Canadians make no connection between the fact that they are a Northern European welfare state and the fact that we have very low economic growth, a standard of living substantially lower than yours, a massive brain drain of young professionals to your country, and double the unemployment rate of the United States."
- Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

"Your country [the USA], and particularly your conservative movement, is a light and an inspiration to people in this country and across the world."
-Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

"Canada appears content to become a second-tier socialistic country, boasting ever more loudly about its economy and social services to mask its second-rate status, led by a second-world strongman appropriately suited for the task."
- Stephen Harper in his article "It is time to seek a new relationship with Canada," December 12th, 2000.

"A culture of defeat..."
- Stephen Harper, describing the Atlantic provinces, May 2001.
