Lust led to Liberal demise:
Canada finally ready for real Tory reform

When Paul Martin hit the tube last week, I half expected him to turn to the camera, shaking a finger denying he had sex with someone.
Bill Clinton's apology accompanied by denial turned out to be the decline of the Democrat machine. Martin's speech to the nation signifies the death of the Liberal Empire.
Canada's primary problem is not Liberal greed alone, but Canadian imbalance. Since 1900, the Conservatives have been in power for 31 years and the Liberals for more than 70.
I recently interviewed Senator Anne Cools who left the Liberals last June.
Cools was appointed by Trudeau many Liberal moons ago. As an independent thinker she explains how the Liberal caucus today can be a mean-spirited place to work -- if you don't march to the current politically correct drummer.
Having worked both sides of the House, Cools philosophically proclaims the Liberals to be "... in descendancy, no matter how you cut it."
Cools also explained how people associate lust with sex, but the lust for power and dominion is just as powerful: "It makes people act in pretty strange ways," she said.
"When any political organization reaches a stage where its primary drive is ambition and the need for and the holding on to power -- it is most unhealthy. It means the primary drive is no longer actuated by principles of governance. The opinion of the people and caucus are no longer heeded."
And the signs of Liberal deterioration go beyond the revelations at the Gomery inquiry.
Such as the obvious physical aging of the no-longer-needed-Liberal-pit-bull Warren Kinsella, who recently testified at a sidebar inquiry investigating further Liberal PR firm improprieties. At his zenith, Kinsella was the anti-conservative "hidden-agenda" flag waver who took Stockwell Day down by mocking his religion on Canada AM with a purple dinosaur. Kinsella now seems a pathetically frail shell of his old self-aggrandizing self.
Paul Martin flirts with the NDP speculating he can hold power with their help by eliminating corporate tax breaks.
NDP policy is not the only thing Martin is borrowing from Jack Layton. Martin's choice of headgear at a recent Khalsa Day celebration was a bright orange babushka. Layton also sported an orange scarf monogrammed "Jack," making me wonder if Paul Martin borrowed Layton's and flipped it over.
Covering your head at a Sikh celebration is a sign of respect, but Martin disrespects the Sikh faith by pushing same-sex marriage.
To retain power Paul Martin and the Liberals continue to be all things to all people. They have lost touch with their principles, and, in so doing, lost their very soul.
Certain national papers continue their relativist Liberal apologetic gymnastics claiming Paul Martin is "99.9% pure" while Stephen Harper is coming on "... like an attack dog, not a statesman."
Harper needs to keep it coming.
It is time for the Conservatives to stand tall for alternative Canadian values. Stand tall for tax cuts for businesses -- to stimulate the economy. Stand tall for tax cuts for the middle class so they can spend more money directly on their own families. Stand tall for marriage and no longer allow the Liberals to cover a litany of sins with "rights" rhetoric.
Liberal lite is not the answer: Canada is finally ready for real reform. Hopefully it will come in the form of the Conservatives.
Absolutely! And she was a Liberal for over 25 years!
That would work, with regional opt-out clauses if remote regions of Quebec do not want to go separate and instead want to join the Union.
Good point. There are a lot of normal people (i.e., English speakers) in Quebec. Perhaps we concentrate the French into Montreal and Quebec City, and then liberate the rest of Quebec.
That may work.

Like it or not, the population of Canuckistan is akin to having New Yorkers and San Franciscans living from coast to coast. The Liberals will win now, and win in the future, in perpetuity, ad infinitum, regardless of the evil they do, the crimes they commit, or the lies they spew, because the Canucks from Canuckistan are genetically predisposed to kiss the ass of every left wing idiot and Frenchie wannabe that comes down the pike. Its what the Canucks do. They can't help themselves. And they'll do this until the day they all die.
The regions that fairly describe what you said:
-Beauce (south of Quebec City, could join the adjacent New England states)
-Outaouais (opposite side of Ottawa River, could hook onto Ontario)
-northern Quebec (mostly Cree and Inuit, separate northern territory?)
The west end of Montreal is more English as well, but they are ULTRA-liberal. Keep them out of the Union.
However, referendums should be held in all the other areas, except the Montreal-Quebec City axis, and a majority vote should prevail, except when they would otherwise be isolated in one way or another. Language is not a real issue, after all there is no real official language in the US.
That's the media perception. Fortunately, that is not true at all. Outside the large cities of Toronto and Vancouver and the province of Quebec, there is actually a conservative majority or at least an even split...unfortunately the media only sees the view from the big cities.
This sums up our Dems as well.
No, thanks. I already have a good job, and I have no desire to abandon one messed up federal system just to joing another that respects neither its own constitution or the right's of its states. I'd rather fix our system and remain a Canadian, as I was born and as my ancestors fought and died. Is that too hard to understand?
You also don't speak for all, or even most convservatives up here. Most of us would still like to save this country by reforming it. If you're so pessimistic about this country, why are you still here? Advocating the dissolution of this country is not exactly a "conservative" stance, is it?
Yes, the US constitution is a wonderful document when strictly adhered to. Unfortunately, on a wide variety of issues that appears to be almost never.
Well, let's see. Conservative politicians can appoint judges more to their liking, if they can get into power and stay there for a while. Provinces can use the not-withstanding clause to opt out of sections of the constitution if they've got the political guts to do it. And remind me exactly what the ammending formula for the constitution is: I seem to recall that no single small province can veto changes, although one large one could, but I may be mis-remembering.
I'm not optimistic about the chances for positive change in this country, but I'm not willing to throw in my hand just yet - my country deserves better than that. Your defeatist attitude certainly won't accomplish anything.
