Janke on Dion and the Liberals

Steve Janke has written one of the best summaries of Dion and the current Liberal Party of Canada that I perhaps have ever read... and I agree with his sentiments.

The Liberal Party of Canada, in its present incarnation, ought to be relegated to the trash heap of history. Realignment is already underway in Canada, and the Liberal Party is the only thing standing in the way of progress. The Liberal Party is only interested in the status quo, of patronage, entitelment, and privilage.

Off with its head... realign the pieces, and restore the people's faith in our democratic institutions.

(for the record, I believe the destruction of the LPC would also cause some realignment with the CPC, which would be a good thing... but so long as the Liberal beast lives, no such realignment will occur... because we refuse to let Canadians suffer as they did through the 90's with no effective right leaning option)

    Ahh... I always like to read your stuff. Good common sense coming from Canada. I don't entirely believe in the destruction of Liberalism, (there should always at least be one or two out there on the board of some obscure college)

    ... just so we can know what we do NOT believe lol

    What the Liberal party desperately needs is a good thrashing.

    And I'm not saying this to mean that I think the Liberal party should be eliminated, but look around at the current Liberal party. How many new faces do you see? Not many, not nearly enough. There is still all the Chretien-era MPs sitting around. Granted Dion is doing something to bring in new blood but its insufficient because he himself is old blood.

    What the Liberal party needs is a chance to 'clear the decks' so to speak and come back with a fresh start and new ideas. They need to refocus on what they believe rather than fearmongering about what a Conservative majority may or may not do.

    Any rumours of 'unite the left' activity.Coderre and Layton would be a great team.
