The Myopically Progressivist Danielle Smith.

dwr.jpgLet me say right up front, that having listened to dozens of US and Canadian radio talk show hosts, I think that QR77’s Danielle Smith is one of the best in North America. But she still is plagued by some massive blind spots of the type that led her, as Wildrose Party leader, to cross the floor and join the corrupt and unpopular Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta.

Currently, it’s her fundamentalist Progressivism that steers her into the ditch. indexListening to a recent show, she dismissed both Derek Sloan and Leslyn Lewis as potential leaders of the Conservative Party of Canada, because, they have some non-Progressivist positions on social issues, and she says: “Canadians don’t want to go backwards on social issues.” Actually, many of us would argue that we need to go back to regain sanity.

Irregardless, Danielle completely ignored Lewis’s five specific, and only positions on social issues.

Lewis will do nothing on same-sex marriage because that ship has sailed, and I agree with her. Canada made a deal with same sex couples, and while I oppose the demands of the LGBT radicals to co-opt whatever cultural traditions they wish, I absolutely detest people and companies and countries that break contracts.

DSC5610_2-removebgLewis’s other foray into social issues is abortion, and she’s laid out four specific policies that the overwhelming majority of Canadians agree with.

1. She would outlaw aborting baby girls just because they’re baby girls. 91% of Canadians agree.

2. She would outlaw coerced abortions. Anyone who would object to that should be ignored.

3. She would increase funding for counseling and support for women and girls facing unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. That’s an initiative that the pro-choice side has been advocating for decades.

4. Lewis would end funding abortions in developing countries, for the very good reason, that most people in these developing countries, and I know this for a fact, oppose this cultural imposition. They view it as 21st century colonialism, and someone should let Justin Trudeau know.

And Danielle Smith needs to break out of her intellectual straitjacket on some of these social issues, and do a 3 C rethink, that is, think Carefully, Courageously, and Completely.

A critical day for this century.

dwr.jpgNo, that’s not an exaggeration. Today is that critical day because it’s the last day that you can buy a membership in the Conservative Party of Canada, and you need that membership to be able to vote on a new leader in August. And that vote will hopefully set a new direction for Canada, and particularly Alberta and Saskatchewan, for the rest of this century.

There is no question that for the last 60 years, Canada has been a declining power. In World Wars I and II, Canada punched well above its weight, and gained enormous respect internationally. Even in the1950 – 1953 Korean War, 700 Canadians successfully fought off 5000 Chinese Communist soldiers at the battle of Kapyong Valley. Without the heroes of Kapyong, Seoul may well have been recaptured and Kim Jong Un would now be running all of Korea and being an even bigger menace than he is now. And in 1957 Canadian diplomacy was instrumental in heading off a major conflict involving Egypt and the Communist world, and Israel, the United States, Great Britain and France.

JT ClownBut since then Canada has drifted into increasing irrelevancy until we’ve  arrived at the point where Canada’s Prime Minister is regarded, by serious people, as an un-serious clown on the world stage. Unless there is a Conservative Party of Canada win in the next federal election, the downward slide will continue.

Even if you’re a western separatist, as I am, we are going to be stuck within Canada for the next ten to fifteen years, and, be beside Canada thereafter. Considering the amount of damage the Liberal government has done to us in the last four years,  I shudder to think of what they could do to us with another eight or ten years. It’s critically important to the West that they are turfed from office at the earliest possible opportunity.

Today, Friday, May 15 is the last day that you can buy a membership in the Conservative Party of Canada, and without that membership you cannot vote for the next leader. And the next Conservative leader is going to be critical to Canada and to Albertans, including separatists. I’m sure you’re aware that we’ll have a choice of four leaders, but that’s for after today, until August 21. Today, if you don’t already have a membership you can get one here.

And if you can’t get around to it, allow me to be a bit blunt. If you don’t like the result after the next federal election will you promise not to complain about it?

But, if you agree that our descendant’s future hangs on the next election, please forward this to your entire email list.
