Meeting PM Harper today, made a huge impression on me. You see, lately, I’ve been blogging, but without “heart”. There has been no fire in my gut. Here is my journey that led to my actually meeting the Prime Minister of Canada.
I have always been a Conservative voter, maybe it’s the air out here in Alberta, or maybe it’s how you are raised to believe in yourself and your abilities. So all I ever did was go and vote for whichever Conservative was running either provincially or federally. I thought that was the extent of my duty as a Canadian.
When Mulroney crashed and burned, I found the Reform Party. I voted for the various versions that ensued; it didn’t bother me that they were not in power, because they represented my views better than any other party out there. All I did was vote, I never engaged.
Then Adscam hit, and I woke up. I realized that my inattention had allowed the Liberals to take power, and keep it even though they proved to be corrupt. The backroom boys were running my beloved Canada. I didn’t like it, not one little bit. That’s when I got politically involved. I slept through the 2004 election. Who was Stephen Harper? I didn’t know, except I remembered some blonde bimbo wanting to be the Conservative party leader, and that this Stephen Harper had beat her. Thank goodness.
The Liberal Adscam scandal put the fire into my gut. I emailed my MP, James Rajotte, and he promptly invited me to his volunteer appreciation BBQ. The rest is history. I became engaged, active and now I do more than just vote for a party, I actively participate in the Conservative party. My reward was meeting the Prime Minister of Canada today.
It put the fire back into my gut.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is an exceptional individual under tremendous pressure in a minority government. He is up against the Liberals, NDP and Bloc, all left leaning parties who tried to band together to bring his freshly elected government down, against the will of Canadians. He has to put up with a left leaning, aggressive media, and he also has to try to keep Conservatives united. Only an outstanding individual could accomplish that and still run a country. Let me repeat that for all the dissatisfied conservatives….RUN A COUNTRY!
In 2006, I door knocked in the cold at least 10 times to get the Conservatives elected into government. In the last election, I door knocked once, then made excuses. There was no fire in my gut.
Conservatives like me need to wake up. The Liberals crave power; they will lie, cheat and steal to get it back. We cannot be smug thinking the Conservatives will get re-elected. Most importantly we need to get that old Reform fire back in our guts.
An exceptional man is running our country. We see him constantly derided by the press and the opposition. I get lefty trolls on my site daily, sneering and deriding our Prime Minister or anything Conservative. They personally attack me, and commenter’s on my blog. We are saturated by lefty propaganda, daily. They feed it to us morning, noon and night. I am sick of it.
The world respects our Prime Minister, our troops are finally respected instead of sneered at because of this PM, and yet Canadians mindlessly march towards socialism, thinking pensions (CAW) should be guaranteed by governments, and that jobs should be for life.
We have forgotten what we stand for….Canada. We need to get that fire back in our guts.
