I find it interesting that the opposition brought down the Conservative government on a vote of non-confidence because of "contempt" by the government, but that didn't play very well, so the media have gone back to the faux scandals, like the wafergate, the Odagate, the _______ (fill in the blank) gate. The media is going for the emotional issues, because they know PM Harper will win on the economy and tax issues. BOO HOO a pro-Iggy supporter got asked to leave a Harper rally. Now she is a victim? Give me a break.
On Sunday, the Liberals released their "red book" and it stank, that's why the media is trying to change the channel. They don't want us to know about the cap and trade/carbon tax that the Liberals (and NDP) want to impose on the west. They don't want us to know about how the Liberals will gut the military, AGAIN!
Here is one of the best blog postings I have seen totally destroying the "red book". Some highlights:
The current Fleece Merchants obviously consider Pierre Trudeau, who almost bankrupted Canada, to have been a piker. This time around, the Liberals will do a much better job of bankrupting Canada and extracting every last cent from our wallets.Go check out this blog post to see the examples, it's a must read.
Traditional Liberal supporters and money holes like First Nations/Aboriginals/Metis, Artists and "free money" outlets (Council for Arts), the Civil Service and special (entitlement) interest groups are favoured in the Liberal income re-distribution scam.
But there's more! By re-positioning far to the left of the NDP's platform, the Liberal Party has to cater to a host of new supporters, and welcome back all their old supporters, at a large cost to you and me. Examples include:
The slimy media has nothing to do but attack PM Harper for something he had no control over, and American Iggy couldn't help but slam him, smugly, in a Tim Horton's. You are not fooling anyone Iggy, blue sweater or not, you are a snob!
PM Harper has done a terrific job during a very challenging time, where every country took a hit. We have come out of it quicker than any other country thanks to his management. (Lefty trolls will say it was Martin who is responsible, but the Liberals has been out of power for 5 years, they just haven't gotten used to it yet).
Why did the opposition cause this election? To attain power. Simple.
How? By any means possible, like a coalition. This time they won't actually sign a document, but if you have ever watched the committees where they have the MAJORITY, you will understand how they collaborate to make Parliament dysfunctional.
Both the Liberals ( in their red book of tricks) and the NDP have come out saying they want to shut down the oil sands. NEP II. This will not sit well with the west, but we have so few votes that we have to rely on Ontario to help us out. Think about this, PEI has 4 MP's when their population would only actually deserve 1 MP. Little PEI is more powerful than Alberta, the engine that is driving our economy. Alberta is getting smoking hot again, this means more revenue for the feds, our deficit could disappear sooner than projected, unless the coalition gets elected.
Now the Liberals/media are attacking a very good ad by the Conservatives, because they use the flag that Iggy called a beer can label. They are disgusting, and the media is pandering to them so badly no Conservative can watch them anymore.
