Liberal leader Justin Trudeau campaigns in Windsor, Ont.* Liberals are the best choice for Canada

Four years ago, almost to the day, we enthusiastically urged voters to back Justin Trudeau and the Liberals. It was high time, we said, to choose a “strong, hopeful alternative” after almost 10 years of regressive Conservative rule. It was an easy choice.

Today, we make the same recommendation for Monday’s election. Trudeau and the Liberals have accomplished important things since 2015. And they offer the best program for continuing in that positive direction over the next four years.

But we say this in full knowledge that the Liberals of 2019, and their leader in particular, have fallen short of the bright shiny promise they held out in the last campaign.
The Liberals promised an awful lot back then, too much in fact. They created huge expectations for change and it’s no surprise that they disappointed a lot of people. Some will never forgive them, for example, for backing off on electoral reform.

Beautiful Quotes of Thomas Paine:

* Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them.

* I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

* He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

* It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.

The sculpture, which shows the president decked out as an emperor, complete with cape and sword, is appearing at the Carnevale Di Viareggio festival held in Viareggio each year during Carnival, an annual festival season before Lent.

This year’s festivities — which includes a weekly parade of large, elaborate paper-mâché floats that often have a political message — mark the 146th year of the event. It attracts more than 600,000 spectators each year, according to the official parade website.

The Trump float is called “The Master-Drone” and was created by artist Fabrizio Galli. Galli has made similar sculptures that satirize political figures in the past, including North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin 

“The Master-Drone” shows the president in golden battle armor, including a sword covered in blue birds fashioned after the Twitter logo and a gold crown. He also has a large clawed hand.

On the float, an American eagle can be seen on one of Trump’s shoulders while Putin’s head rests on the other. The Statue of Liberty appears on one of his knees.
