Pillars of the New Albertanism #1

Here is the first re-run of the pillars of the New Albertanism:

#1 No longer seeks to win political influence in Ottawa through federal politics.This doesn't mean that Albertans will absent themselves from Federal elections. Rather, it refers to the attitude of Albertans who no longer pin their hopes for change on the success of a federal political party. Albertans will continue to elect the people to represent their interests federally, but they will not expend their best energies on a system that will not permit them to have success. By contrast, some will continue to believe that the myth of influence can become a reality. However, the New Albertanism does not wish to be myopic any longer, but to clearly act in light of existing realities.

You are so rite. I consider myself a seperatist. An Albertan like so many others that have given up on the federal system. I have not voted in the last three federal elections, and never plan to vote in one again. My conserns are for Alberta only, the rest of the country can look after themselfs. Is Canada dead in lite of this? It is to me! Albertanisum? maybe.

Ah... the tipping point... gotta love it.

Totally agree with that statement as being 100% accurate.

As a veteran of the federal party wars from the Trudeau era to date, I have cashed in hope of federal solutions to the constitutional impasses that plague Alberta's roll in Confederation.

Harper is the last hope for reforming confederalism....but I suspect he will be knifed in the back by liberal in his party or the mindless voting androids in central Canada.

Change for Alberta will come from a local political level and be unilateral in nature...should a federal regime take offense to the province operating within the written constitutional guidelines, it will hasten the autonomy movement towards the independence option....which in my opinion is now the only vehicle which has a chance to removing the confederal inequities.

It is sad to see Mr. Harper trying so desparately not to be himself, due to pressure from Central Canadian Blue Liberals/ Red Tories. But such is the reality of federal politics.

A conversion of energies from federal to local levels may produce far greater impact for Albertans, both short, and long-term.
