The evil they do lives on after them

The evil that men do lives on after them, the good is oft interred with their bones.  Julius Caeser, Act 3, Scene 2.

Thirty years later western Canada is just starting to recover from the vindictive evil done to us by the three stooges – Jean Chretien, Marc Lalonde and Pierre Elliott Himself when they imposed the National Energy Plan on us.  Our courts are still controlled from beyond the grave by Pierre Trudeau working through the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  So it is worthwhile for our American neighbours to consider seriously what may be the legacy and reach of the current occupant of the White House if the country is foolish enough to re-elect him.  Eight years of this man will fundamentally change the US and his impact will continue far into the future in ways we cannot even imagine now.

Clearly Obama is no brilliant intellect on the scale that Trudeau was.  Many of Obama’s impacts on the US economy could be argued to be incidental or accidental.  That doesn’t change the fact that if he runs the country into an economic disaster that it takes 50 or more years to recover from his impact on individual American lives will be fundamental and long lasting.
