I’m lazy today, so here’s a blatant repost from here:
Steven Harper wants to shut down
parliament just because he does not agree with it.
Some say this is unprecedented.
In fact, Harper is following
Consider the following precedents:
1629 King Charles I in England
1799 Napoleon in France
1913: Victoriano Huerta in Mexico
1933: Adolf Hitler in Germany
1936 Fransisco Franco in Spain
1939: Benito Mussolini in Italy
1973: Augusto Pinochet in Chile
2008: Steven Harper in Canada
Way to go, Steve.
