You could hear a pin drop.  The Liberal Party in Quebec is reorganizing.  After all, the Parti québécois did not lose by much.  I wonder however whether or not a branch of a Federal Party can win by a clear majority.  It could be that Quebec needs a strong federalist party, one that would be “à nos autres,” the Quebec way of saying “ours.”

Pierre Elliott Trudeau‘s son is seeking the leadership of the Federal Liberal Party.  Here us the link: http://justin.ca/.

But most importantly, as Canadian newspapers reflect, the US presidential election is now the priority.  We are not Americans, but we share a frontier that crosses a continent with our neighbours to the south.  We want to make sure Obama wins.

Too large a number of Republicans do not want to pay taxes, which is a clear indication that they know little about nationhood.  They don’t care.  In other words, they are saying: “Let them eat cake.”  But Obama cares for the people and has already shown he does.  Besides, he is a man of peace.  That he has also shown.  Morever, he can manage to be the president of a country that has a debt the size of Mount Everest.

Does the United States want another Republican leader?  The former President led it into war and overspent.  The Republicans have a poor record.  For instance, voter suppression is à la Nixon politics.
