Dick Cheney, Ralph Klein, and Economic Separatism

The announcement that Dick Cheney will be visiting Alberta displays another emblem of Albertan independence. Although Ralph Klein will not endorse separatist moves other than these economic ones, the symbolism is clear enough.

U.S. energy policy is factoring in the Alberta oilsands as a hedge against dependence upon the Middle East. As a result, Alberta has taken a role in global affairs that is extraordinary given Alberta's current jurisdiction (a mere province).

Economically, Alberta is establishing a parallel set of relationships with the global community. Alberta will not allow her future economic prosperity to be siphoned off by the Liberal oligarchy.

However, economic independence in a real sense can only be achieved through a concerted plan of self-determination. Only when Albertan's establish their own government, reflecting their own beliefs and values will a more secure freedom be realized.

Many Thanks to the Reformer's Firebrand for the comments on Cheney's visit, although I'm unsure of what the 'moonbat cult' is. :)
