Conservatives..the FUTURE of Alberta !

Recommended Posts

Just as you can see what is happening in Ontario, spending $5 Billion in the budget more than the previous government, tax cuts for the rich while cutting funding for education, healthcare, the environment, public transit.  Throw in $30 million of taxpayers money for a frivolous court challenge, $130 million to pay out your decision on the $6 million dollar man, as well as the cost of signs and stickers for your branding at taxpayers expense....

However, you can get alcohol all day now, and soon to be a pot shop on every corner.

Meet the new boss, 

Worse than the old boss....

Every single premier who tied their fortunes to Trudeau has lost their re-election campaign.

It happened in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and now Alberta. The PEI Liberals are also headed for defeat later this month.

There may not be a single Liberal government left in Canada by 2020.

Alberta's Nightmare Is Over

It's a great day in Alberta. Seeing weeks worth of fear-mongering and identity politics finally die out with a pathetic whimper has restored my faith in Albertans. I was worried in 2015, but it all makes sense now. Albertans were angry about the cronyism of the PC Party and the ineptitude of the Wildrose, so they had to do something drastic to make a change. Not thinking their votes would really matter, they rage-voted the NDP into power. At the time, it was devastating to watch, but hindsight is almost always 20/20. In 2019, it's clear that Albertans needed the NDP and Rachel Notley to bring them together by showing them the worst of the worst.

 

Almost five decades of Progressive Conservative rot needed to be dealt with. Albertans were becoming disenfranchised, discouraged and angry. Conservatives were divided and the only way to bring them all back together was through socialism, economic hardship and the devastating policies of the NDP. They didn't know it at the time—or maybe they did—but all of this pain would eventually unite them again. 

 

Thanks, Rachel. 

 

It took four years of NDP rule for Albertans to realize they didn't want NDP rule. Of course, there will always be NDP and union loyalists in Alberta, but their numbers should stay innocuous as long as Jason Kenney does a good job. The Saskatchewan NDP seems on course for a fourth straight defeat after what will have been thirteen years of a centrist, anti-NDP government. Scott Moe has exceeded expectations and if Jason Kenney can do the same (including retiring when necessary), the United Conservatives should hold power for a long time to come. If the birthplace of Canadian socialism can keep the NDP down, Alberta should have no problem. 

 

After four years of NDP destruction, there is so much to look forward to and so much to be proud of in Alberta. 

 

 

Identity Politics Failed

 

Who is gay, who is brown, who is most disadvantaged by their sexual orientation and skin colour. This was all the NDP had to work with. However, none of the NDP's gross and racist campaign tactics worked in Alberta. It turns out, all Albertans came together to flick the lights out on an NDP government that had no successful policies to stand on. Calling Jason Kenney racist and homophobic didn't work. Albertans know he isn't any of those things. Albertans know that the economic hardships in Alberta are affecting everyone of all stripes, colours and sexual orientations. 

 

We're all in this together. No Albertan would choose to leave another Albertan behind based on his skin colour or sexual orientation, minus a few on the fringes. Albertans came together after the Calgary flood of 2013, just like they did again in 2019. It didn't matter to most of them who was what colour, or who was sleeping with who. These things only matter to the NDP and their supporters. 

 

Identity politics is what parties and leaders with no real policies choose as a strategy. Rachel Notley and her NDP didn't have a leg to stand on in this election, so they did what all other NDP governments across Canada have done. They smeared their opponents as racist and homophobic. 

 

They did the same in 2015, thinking it was effective. Trying to repeat their success in 2019, they quickly realized Albertans were more concerned with defeating decades of PC corruption and Wildrose ineptitude in 2015—and less concerned about everyone's race and sexuality. Trying to pander to the most disadvantaged minorities in Alberta quickly led to the NDP's defeat. Albertans ended up being more united and less racist than the NDP had hoped. 

 

Trying to convince minorities that they are victims of their orientation and race is a classic NDP tactic, but it failed miserably in Alberta. Albertans don't care what kind of off-the-cuff and sarcastic remarks or social media posts someone made a few years ago. People evolve. 

 

 

Time To Re-Focus

 

Now that Notley's disastrous government has been put out if its misery, Albertans can focus on putting their province back on track. It won't be easy, but we have one less enemy to deal with. All that's left now is Justin Trudeau and his Liberals in Ottawa. While we work on getting rid of them, we can put the focus back on restoring the Alberta Advantage. 

 

There are some taxes and regulations that need to be repealed, some educational standards that need to be reformed and an energy sector that needs relief. The previous PC government started to rot after the retirement of Ralph Klein, but Jason Kenney has an opportunity to take Alberta back to the Klein era of prosperity. 

 

Kenney can cut taxes, cut spending and help Doug Ford, Scott Moe, Andrew Scheer and Brian Pallister fight Justin Trudeau's carbon tax in court. He can help push for pipelines while taking control of the Premier's office. He can fight the NDP in BC with new boycotts and legislation, while using his majority government to deregulate and diversify Alberta's economy. 

 

There is so much to look forward to, but we'll need to hold Jason Kenney accountable. His job has only just begun. 

 

 

A New Anti-Trudeau Government

 

Unlike Notley, Jason Kenney will fight Justin Trudeau. Rachel Notley talked a big game, but she did little to take Justin Trudeau to task on pipelines and the economy. While Trudeau's government was trying to help SNC-Lavalin get off the hook to save thousands of jobs in Quebec, Alberta's energy sector was left to die and Rachel Notley did nothing but talk. 

 

Alberta has added another anti-Trudeau premier to the bunch. With every new conservative premier, Justin Trudeau gets weaker. With Trudeau still roiled in the SNC-Lavalin scandal, Jason Kenney has an opportunity to re-litigate the fact that Alberta's energy sector was given the backhand while a corrupt Quebec corporation was given the red carpet.

 

Having another loud premier to deal with, Justin Trudeau's PR game has taken another hit. He'll have some dodgy waters to navigate in the next federal election, with five angry premiers and Andrew Scheer breathing down his neck and making his life miserable. Let's not forget about New Brunswick's conservative premier, Blaine Higgs, who has been echoing the sounds of discontent in his province. After decades of stagnation and a suppressed energy sector, New Brunswick is ready to prosper. 

 

As Jason Kenney enters in the mix, Trudeau's chances of winning another majority are slimmer. Expect a barrage from all five conservative premiers, some of whom are powerful and influential. They'll make Justin Trudeau's life a living nightmare just in time for October 21. Given his bad temper and thin skin, expect another serious Trudeau misstep or temper tantrum—or many.

Alberta’s election, and the ugly politics in store for Canada

“ If you look up the Alberta government’s own economic review and indicators, you eventually land on a page filled with headlines like this; Alberta labour market softening, Alberta inflation cools, Trade sector stabilizing following recent weaknesses, shipments fall with lower energy prices, Alberta employment starts 2019 on a weak note.

Some bad news, some middling news, the occasional crack of progress. It goes on and on like this. Page after page. For years “

 

“ To the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Tides Foundation, Lead Now, the David Suzuki Foundation and all of the others: Your days of pushing around Albertans with impunity just ended. We Albertans are patient and fair minded, but we have had enough of your campaign of defamation and double standards.”

I guess we travel in different crowds. The only complaining I hear is from Liberals finding any and all possible excuses to bash Fords efforts. It’s almost identical to the Democrats antics in the States. I stand by what I said. The map tells all.

Great synopsis from Rex Murphy.

https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-trudeau-damned-rachel-notley-and-gave-jason-kenney-generous-outside-help/amp

Love this part...

“A fourth reason for Kenney’s success, and this one threads the other three, was the “fire in the hole” of his campaign — that “Alberta will no longer be passive” in the face of the calumnies remorselessly hurled at the province’s industry by the Green machine’s propaganda arm, professional activists, California-Canadians (Neil Young), drive-by supermodel-addicts (Leonardo DiCaprio) and the ever-useless and cloying Bill Nye.

In my experience nothing more has depressed the general morale of many in Alberta than every holier-than-everybody-else Green peddler’s bleating to the world about Fort McMurray’s sins against the planet, and the daily slanders from the pulpits of the grand imperial church of global warming.”

Ford is just Wynne on Steroids.  He is doing exactly the same things only he brought back the Mike Harris Tactics.  Ontario is no better off under Ford, in fact in some places we are actually worse off.

Canadians traditionally pick the best of the worst...Shows you how bad the “worst” ( aka Liberals )  are when the entire country are delegating them to a status of a nightmare the country is waking up from.

we only have so many options.  2 actually.  Bad or bad.  The remaining are in in the race but lame and unable to finish.

Our government, at all levels, is out for them selves and their cronies. blue, red,orange or green no one is looking out for Canada.

And that summarizes why I vote for whoever will put the most in my pocket, not some corporations because historically they all tax and spend.  (Except if you're the 1%)

It took Ontario decades to turn around from Harris.  As you said, Ford is doing the exact same, only faster....

Worked about the same as choosing Notley here in Alberta.   

When the populace finally wakes up and see the untold damage that has been inflicted by these three (Trudeau, Notley, Wynne), change starts to happen, albeit way to slowly for me.

People (most anyway) aren't as dumb as the left makes them out to be, the slander campaigns backfired, and will do so again in the fall.

The slander campaign is all that is left when there is nothing of substance as far as ideas and policy go.

This is a big part of the problem and explains how we got to this point IMO. 

Listen to any of the questions posed at one of those town hall meetings and the underlaying premise is always "what are you going to do for me?" It's never about what is good for the country. Ironically, what is good for the country is usually good for you but people don't see it that way. In the age of identity politics, what is good for you as an individual likely differs from what is good for your neighbour. Hence polarization. And the real kicker here is that identity politics invariably boil down to sovereignty of the individual anyway; you can divide any group identity in a thousand ways.

Then there is the inevitable 1% discussion that always arises at election time.... tax the 1%. I've been hearing this since about grade 6 and it hasn't happened yet, might be time to move on. There will always be a 1%, Price's law is governing here and attempts to thwart it have historically been monumental failures.

How many times do I have to hear tax the rich or cut the fat tied to some crazy scheme that is going to be expensive. Liberals are all over this until they discover that they are the fat rich ones. I believe none of it now, never again will I fall for strident chants in support of Liberal values. The whole open borders thing is stupidity in 3D. We can't even handle a few refugees in a sanctuary city without giving up with a whimper and drying our tears with an omnibus bill.... that's the critter JT swore never to use as I recall.

Meanwhile in California, arguably the most basic, easiest and cheapest aspect of sanctuary city responsibilities has literally turned to crap.... what makes the Democrats so dangerous is that they want even more of what they already have too much of.... it's like an addiction and they will need to hit rock bottom before they entertain the notion of rehab:

It isn't about punishing the 1% imo.  It's about making them pay their fair share, bring in a flat tax with no loopholes.

Your side of the argument has been thoroughly proven wrong.  Trickle down economics is the greatest lie ever.

I have no side.

So, when will this flat tax happen? Why hasn't it happened yet? I've listened to this tax the rich thing my entire life, where is it? Liberals would turn apoplectic and scream regressive tax at the first mention of it. 

Now, here's what I see over and over again: The Liberals will come up with some ridiculously expensive plan for something that a kid in grade 6 knows is a bad idea and they will sell it as being paid for by taxing the rich. We have both seen a few Liberal governments come and go right? You and I always (and I mean always) end up being the rich.

With each new incarnation of silliness, I will end up asking the same question I always do: are you willing to pay for it? The second liberal voters discover that they are the rich, they will bolt. If ever there was an example of this it's the hideous situation our immigration system is in. Remember when I was a racist for urging caution and common sense?  Remember when I was a xenophobe for suggesting that the integration of people from places like Somalia would prove expensive and that it was essential to do that right because of the cultural differences? The people doing the name calling were (and are) completely, totally, and utterly ignorant of the very cultural differences that they are still unwilling to pay for in Toronto. They don't even realize that they are actually now paying for not doing what they should of in the first place. They can't even identify the problem without choking on the words.

The Liberals are now more draconian than I would ever have been and they were the ones who created the situation with sanctuary cities and an open invitation to desperate people. Then when desperate people undertook desperate journeys and took us at our word (as a nation) we pull the rug out from underneath them. If that isn't racist I don't know what is. 

The true test of Liberal hypocrisy will be when the sanctuary cities turn on the immigrants they previously promised sanctuary to. That's just around the corner I bet. So, as it stands now, no amount of insults or name calling by liberals (directed toward me or others) gets even the slightest level of consideration. For all of their faults, it's only the Trumps and Fords of the world keeping these fools from further mischief.

Have you seen me complain about taxation?

My taxes have gone up under all parties.

My point is stop the concentration of wealth at the expense of society.

Living in Ontario, I have seen how the cons cut public services and downloaded costs to municipalities under Harris.  I have also seen roads and infrastructure being repaired under Wynne.

The biggest point, and it is highlighted to the cuts in education now occurring in Ontario, and in the U.S. is that the cons want a dumber society.

Easier to control.

It's statements like that which cause reasonable people's eyes to glaze over. 

Do you really think anyone believes that any Conservative government  anywhere is actually dedicated to making the population dumber or that it deliberately manipulates the eduction system to achieve that end? If the road is in poor condition in my riding (Liberal BTW) am I then to conclude that Liberals want more accidents and fatalities on the highway?  

No one really believes that sheer is a white suprematist regardless of how many times JT screams it. They don't believe he is a Nazi either and making those statements only minimizes the evil effects those ideologies have perpetrated and insults the intelligence of reasonable people. Moving forward, Liberals and Democrats had better start thinking about how reasonable people view their antics.... time is short.

As a former Liberal, I see it as over the top, self destructive and thus, bordering on idiotic. At a minimum, it is a huge insult and disservice to anyone who has ever been victimized by white suprematist or Nazi atrocities. Minimizing these things in a flippant manner for obvious and craven political ends will serve them poorly in the long run IMO.

Where have reasonable, moderate, compassionate Liberals gone? Find me one and I'll vote for it. If the only reason your cabinet is 50% women is because it's 2015 then STOP. If the best people available are all women and 100% of the cabinet are women as a result, you will get no argument from me.

So if I am wrong, and liberals are so wrong, please explain to me this...

Why is it conservative governments (Ontario, U.S.) always have cuts to education funding as one of their first items on the agenda?

Wouldn't it be more prudent to spend more on education and change the curriculum to your standard if you think it's faulty?

Or does that take away from the fact that private education becomes an even more appropriate spend?

It's all about controlling the message.  If you don't have a society trained in critical thinking, then the message you spin becomes more powerful.
