Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize...

Let me be blunt. We have had a Conservative Government for 2 years. 2 years too long in my opinion. Yet in the midst of the biggest scandal to break from this government, all I see in the blogosphere and the media is Clinton this, Obama that(Barry did this, Hillary did that). Can you all please do me one favour and cut the crap? The worse example is on facebook, a bunch of hack Liberals more interested in a primary, than in defining the future of our nation. We have to define it now as Liberals. The alternative to the Liberal Party is a right wing government that has no respect for Canadians (no real accountability). They have flouted elections law, and their only excuse they have is mindless spin and double talk.

We have to punish these Conservative clowns for their corruption and illegal spending. Then boom, today we find out Jim Flaherty is handing out contracts to his friends to help him write his deficit budget. So Jim didn't tender the contract and hired firms that are Tory friendly. That sounds similar to another scandal. Oh yeah, the one that brought down the Liberal Government.

But oh no, lets get back to Pennsylvania. Let me cut through the bs. In NOVEMBER, yes NOVEMBER, a democrat will win the White House. The Democrats will win control of the house, and yes the Democrats will win control of the Senate. Yes, I will bet anyone a shiny nickel of these outcomes. Also, how would Canadians react if Americans were up here meddling in a Party Leadership race. Thats something to think about....

If an election is called this spring, it will be done by the end of June. Yes our whole campaign will take place by the end of the school year. No endless primaries and endless debates, and endless campaigning. Let's keep hammering the Tories, its time for their inept corruption to end. They want to destroy our country and decentralize it into autonomous regions.

Let us remember, these aren't the Mulroney PC's who were somewhat progressive and respected the institutions of the state. These are the Reformers that are using the blue banner and Canadians are finally coming to see the true nature of this group of individuals.

It's time for the public to hold these people accountable, and you can't find out the facts by watching CNN and going to Obama rallies. If you love Barry or Hilary, do it in private. Stephane and the Liberals need all the public love this time of year. This spring is 100 times more important for Canadians than any American election. Everyday we see new insight into what the Conservatives are capable of and their contempt for the average Canadian. It's time to trust the American's, let our neighbors fix their own lawn, cause ours is in rough shape and we need to take care of business here.

In and Out, Lets Get Illegal Rebates?

This Scandal is very bad. Why? We'll think of it in this context, say you made a large sum of Money, over $1 million, and you found a way to funnel it into your own made up charity, and then asked the government for a tax rebate, even though your "human fund" (fake charity) is totally bogus and just essentially money laundering and outspending your nearest rival in some type of election contest.

So, if the allegations are true, it means one thing. Everything that the Harper Tories ran for in 2006 is a lie. They cheated their way to victory and used a loophole as an excuse. If you apologize and make excuses for this type of behaviour, you also have no morals, and are part of the problem. Liberals did not try and cover up the adscam, which implicated about 3-4 people in the Quebec wing of the party who benefited.

This scandal implicates close to 80 different ridings, and various campaign managers colluding with the national campaign to not only launder and funnel money but to try and get expenses from Elections Canada for spending the money locally. This is much more complex than adscam. This involves more than one provincial wing of the party. In fact the NDP isn't giving the Conservatives enough credit by associating this with the Liberal Adscam. Once again, the NDP is trying to tar us up, and looking mediocre and petty doing it. Keep it up Jacko!

The problem right now is the media is not presenting a clear distinction of these allegations, and they are being too quick to assume the far reaching scale of it. This goes right from the National Conservative campaign, to a large number of local operators. There is too much spin, too much liberalizing. Lets stick to the facts, the Conservatives are not being forthcoming with Elections Canada, and they were forced to act against the Conservatives with their search warrants and the subsequent raid.

We do not live in some type of banana republic where we make the rules as they go along. The Conservative blogger response of covering their ears and start screaming "lying, lying, Elections Canada is Liberal Conspiracy" doesn't fly either after Harper appointed the boss of Elections Canada after the last election.

What is important to come in the following days? How true are these allegations? What is the penalty for them? And when is the next election?

RCMP!, Search Warrant!, Conservatives!

So much for being Mr. Accountability. This can shed some light on how corrupt the Tories really are. So much for being transparent, oh yeah they didn't even implement Gomery.
