(Re)Hire. This. Man. Then. Fire. Them. All.

(~nod~ to Ezra Levant)

My dear Canadian friends, it is my wish that not only will Prime Minister Stephen Harper be re-elected, but that he does so with a burr already in his saddle that does not give him any rest until he deals with it, namely:


You'll all be in my thoughts tomorrow.

Only one more day and then he's back...

I wonder what that's going to be like?

Good question. Conservatives on both sides of our borders seem to have lost their cojones on certain key things.

Me, when I get the chance, I'm going to write to Mr. Harper and encourage him to get off the stick CHRC-wise, American though I might be. Squeaky wheels, and all that!

Walker Morrow said...

Hey, you should. From what I've heard, it looks like he's going to be treading on eggshells. Which begs the question of why?

Surely Canada needs a prime minister strong enough to offend the effete elite, and get done what needs doing.

I think conservatives in general are undergoing a kind of earthquake, identity-wise. I know I have been, personally -- that is, I don't march in lockstep with ALL the elements of being conservative that used to be defining features.

For example, I'm all for less regulations, rather than more -- but the reason regulations are enacted at all is because certain people can't control themselves. In the current climate, it's greedy businesspeople. And if they continue to put the rest of us at risk with their shenanigans, they need to be brought to heel. But McCain, Harper et al. are clinging to an old economic model when a new one clearly has to be established.

And a whole lot of us conservatives are re-thinking our positions on this issue and others. It's an uncertain, unstable time in many ways -- and our politicians actually may not know where to go forward themselves.

Me, I look at it as positive. The Left may take the reins for a while -- but I don't think it will take too long for revamped conservatives to eventually win the common-sense wars. And we'll find the right path, I have no doubt.
