Tore up my CPC Membership Card Tonight

No, I'm not kidding... I am 100% serious. After what happend this week, and after long consideration on what to do about it, I felt it was my only option. And for those of you who doubt my sincerity, here's the photo evidence...

Just moments ago, I fired off an e-mail to my EDA President, attempting to explain in detail the reasons for taking this extreme action... I will post the contents of that e-mail once I receive a reply.

Stay tuned for more details. (I can't post more until tomorrow afternoon because I'm giving the sermon at church in the morning, and won't be near a computer until afterwards)

    I guess you are going to have to remove yourself from the Blogging Tories then....

    Best of luck to you and what ever new party you select, perhaps the Christian Heritage Party would be a good fit for you.

    Show some maturity and reconsider your dissatisfaction with whatever it is that upsets you. The alternative may not provide any solace. Good luck.

    Think twice about your move.

    Don't let anybody giving up on our party.

    Stay on target and remain a Conservative party's member.

    Whatever happened inside your EDA : get over it.

    I care: I'm shocked and disappointed.

    I'm not an ideological conservative, but it's unfortunate when decent people that want to affect positive change leave their party.

    I obviously don't know what's up. I've seen some pretty serious $%#&% from the Brass too concerning EDAs. I elected to fight: just what loser hope you won't do. Regardless, I wanted top thank you for your blogging. Been a regular and have tremendously enjoyed your various thoughts and insights, political and otherwise. Would hate to see you go. (Hang in there! For the good guys at least!)

    Come on - can't you simply ignore all of your principles and worship the infallible rat pack Prime Minister?

    Surely it doesn't matter that virtually everything they were supposed to stand for has been swept away in favour of crass political opportunism. How about the most free-spending Cdn gov't in history that wants to direct your behaviour with tiny tax incentives rather than meaningful broad-based tax cuts?

    Good on you. It's encouraging to see that some folks aren't buying this Conformatory Party nonsense and refusing to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Let me ask you a question:

    Would you rather act as a balance to the politics of right, or the politics of the left. There is no Andrew Prescott party of Canada, pick the one that best reflects your interests.

    I can see your displeasure, considering the current government is in a minority situation and at the mercy of the Dippers, Liars, and Sepratists. They may be more of a liars-lite party right now, but that is the nature of a minority government. I too am wondering where this will all lead, but after some reflection and thought, I have decided to hang on until we have won a majority. I am putting my trust in the people of Canada right now. If they decide to vote the "Liars Party of Corruption and Little Brown Envelopes" back in, well they will have spoken and will have to live with that decision. I for one cannot in all honesty vote for a party lead by an academic who has no real life experience outside the saftey net of his academic Quebec cacoon. Someone who has never done a hard days work in his life. I have to give Harper credit, he is not your standard academic political hack who has been handed the keys to the castle by the "natural ruling party crime family". He has worked his way up from the bottom, and is doing his best to cobble together a majority, and I think we can help.

    Having said that, you need to follow your conscience, and go where that may lead you. If it brings you back into the CPC, so be it. Good luck either way.

    Spitfire wins... it was last years expired membership card. ;-)

    GOT YA! I'm still a fully paid up member of the Party... and no, I'm not a full fledged kool-aid drinker.

    (of course, that doesn't mean I won't cut my current one up should the need arise)

    That must be another april fools joke. You are a kool-aid sipper, don't try to fool yourself.

    Actually, "surecure" won at 3:00am, but his comment ruined the gag, so I deleted it. Reposted it under the April Fools post.
