Conservatism in Canada

These are troubled times but, thanks to the resolute, visionary leadership of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Poland and their allies these are also times of great change for the better. Now we have a minority government in Canada and the possibility for change of our own we finally have a Conservative federal alternative with the capacity to offer a resolute, visionary role for Canada in the world. Remember Stephen Harper's impassioned call for the spread of democracy and his clear articulation of Canada's obligation to uphold it through strength whatever the... what was that? You don't remember him making that speech? You're saying that nobody in Canadian federal politics is making the case for bringing liberty and democracy to the millions suffering fascist rule? That the story of Canada's international role has been ceded to the sycophants, the socialists and the separatists? And now Mr. Harper is prevaricating on missile defence?

Maybe there will be a sub-paragraph in next spring's Conservative Party policy convention. That will show the world where we stand.


Mr. Harper, there are many of us on the internet trying to make the case for a renewed Canadian role in these troubled times. We do not have access to national print media let alone the airwaves to make that case. The task, sir, falls to you.

I would never vote for them and that is still pathetic. That is the difference, if you do not mind me saying, between Harper as neo-con and Tories who I would not vote for either but at least respect.

Unfortunately missle defence polls badly (being the creation of those American bastards) and Harper and the Tories seem intent on following a strategy of following rather than leading public opinion.

We saw how well that worked out the last election.

Call it a Tory death wish.
