It's not about power

Uncommon Truths has a good rant posted.

We, the Conservative Party of Canada, aren't like the Liberal Party of Canada. We don't take a poll before each and every decision, and then decide based on how it will affect us at the polls. Sometimes, sure, we check the wind to see what direction to go, but a lot of the time, we simply make a decision because it's the right thing to do.

Such as the decision in UT's example, cutting funding to left-wing advocacy groups. The government has for decades been funding groups that keep on pushing their views and agendas upon the rest of us, and we're sick of it. In order to ensure that the voices of the MAJORITY of Canadians are heard, we had to ensure that no one-sided group was being given an unfair advantage... as MANY of these leftist/statist groups have had.

Now, we're evening the playing field, so that EVERYONE'S VOICES get an equal hearing.

And, of course, that is leaving many Liberals screaming bloody murder.

Well... that's just to bad.

Once again, a hearty THANK YOU to the Right Honourable Prime Minister Stephen Joseph Harper.

    conservative support generally sits between 32 and 35 %. i find it interesting that, when the rest of canada votes decidedly contrary to conservative principles, you claim to represent the majority of canadians.

    Jeff,

    More of the usual boring crap from you.

    "conservative support generally sits between 32 and 35 %. i find it interesting that, when the rest of canada votes decidedly contrary to conservative principles, you claim to represent the majority of canadians." Is the dumbest logic I've heard.

    Using your logic, we could say that 80% voted against socialism and 70% voted against whatever the Liberal Party stands for.

    What really is your point, that no one represent the majority of Canadians?

    Jeff, the jist of my post was that many Canadians DON'T support the leftist drivel we've been subjected to for decades.

    As for the consistant support for the Liberals? After the decades of propoganda they've been getting from special interest groups, paid for by you and I via our tax dollars, who else do you think they're going to vote for? They've been told, repeatedly and consistantly, that the Conservative Party of Canada DOESN'T share their views... and without looking into it for themselves, some people vote for the same-old same-old.

    Trust me, I've met a few.

    Of course the Liberals speak as if they know how each and every Canadian feels. The Liberals are the only party remember.

    "Mr. Harper has, perhaps inevitably, acquired something of a Machiavellian reputation in the course of his rise to power. Mr. Dion has not. If anything, he is regarded as almost too sincere". ~ Andrew Coyne


    This whole idea that the Conservatives don't make decisions based on politics doesn't mesh with reality.

    The GST cut is a perfect example of great politics, but bad public policy. So was the Afghanistan vote.

    And you can't possibly think that cutting funding to groups that disagree with the Conservative's agenda is anything other than politics. Don't be neive.

    robedger...Libs also can't see the purpose in policies. Cutting funding for special interests groups is good policy.Are those groups are valuable to all of Canada? I would say no. Why should they be funded to push their agendas.After all, the people elected are supposed to be representative,making policy for the good of the nation, and to be responsible with our tax.
    Libs are myopic about 'power and politics'...can't see past it.
    Libs should have funded my anti-abortion group based on your statement.
    I didn't ask for funding...I know better.
    Who's naive?
