I know I am. I post daily, and visit the Blogging Tories daily, I enjoy all of the blogs, and feel like we are a community, where Conservatives can finally get our points across. I want to thank Stephen and Craig for keeping this community running. The Blogging Tories are not the problem, in fact, I think they are the solution for Conservatives who want a place to call home.
My problem is with the Conservative party, it needs a good spring cleaning. If we built up a party from the grassroots, the dandelions are now infesting the lawn. The party is pretty much useless from my point of view, and needs a swift kick in the butt.
As my profile states, I got off my duff and got involved with the party because I was so sick of the Liberals stealing from my family, and getting away with it. So, we won, a minority, but we won! We were now the government! Exciting stuff.
What I have noticed is that the CPC thinks it needs to tiptoe around and not offend anyone by showing their actual support of Conservative ideas. You are the Conservative Party of Canada, shout it out! I understand that with a minority government, some tiptoeing is needed, but can we have some backbone here? The Conservative party is now PM Harper, not because he wants that, but because he is getting no support from the party itself.
What is the party doing to advance Conservative issues? Heck, what is the party doing to highlight PM Harper and the Minister's? You decide....
I watch question period and other sources, if something interesting happens, I create a Youtube video and it is posted that night.
Visit the CPC site and this is what you get for video. The only video I could find was an announcement on arenas. Check out the Laureen Harper section. Lovely picture, and nice bio, but where's the information about what she is doing? I don't think that page has been updated since 2004!
If a lowly blogger can get more video posted in support of the Conservatives then the party itself can, a disconnect has occurred. Why can't the "war room" post some video? What the heck are they doing at headquarters? Check out the Minister's profiles, boring, boring, boring! No life, no personal touch, no comments from the Minister's, the whole site sucks.
WHERE ARE THE VIDEOS? If the media is so lefty, why isn't the Conservative party countering that with some videos of their own? All I hear from the party lately is requests for donations.
It's like the CPC is walking on egg shells afraid to offend anyone encase the voters realize that they actually elected the Conservatives. It's like just because the Conservatives are in power, the Conservative party can't broadcast any good things that are being done. Even Sandy from Crux-of-the-Matter has given up on the list of the Conservative parties achievements. Why isn't the CPC doing it? What are they doing?
Just because the Conservatives are "in" government doesn't mean that the CPC has to hide. Get some video up, update Laureen's page so we see what she is doing. Get moving, because just phoning me up and asking for more money is not cutting it anymore. This is from a staunch Conservative supporter, think about the sometimes voters, nothing at this site would make me want to vote Conservative!
Feeling disconnected? Me too!
