CPC: The Colonial Party of Canada

I have not given up on this blog...though my posts are pretty infrequent.

The truth is that there is nothing upon which I care to comment. The federal election, which marches onward witnessed Harper's best week in his political career, and yet the polls signal the Tories dropping in support! This is cause for despair. And it would be worse if it wasn't so predictable.

Ontario will never vote for a true right of centre party, especially one with a Westerner as its leader. In their mind it is like choosing a Sudanese Chieftain or an Indian Brahmin to be the King of England! The imperialists will never allow the colonials to rule over them (unless the imperialists are totally in control--witness Red Western Tories like Joe Clark, Kim Cambell, etc).

We will vote, and watch injustice reign.

But will Westerners engage in the fundamental spade-work that is required to transform the West from being adolescent upstarts into leaders and champions among the globe's best and brightest?

I fear that pouring our best energies into the Ottawa pit of futility will rob Alberta's next generation of the potential that could be theirs. And while we accommodate ourselves to the worldviews of the Central Canadian elites (a post-modern, politically correct, socialist hegemony), their message is quietly converting many young Albertans to their cause.

As I have said in the past, the challenge for a new Albertanism is not merely a political one, but one that touches the heart of our collective identity and worldview.

The Other Hidden Agenda

Solberg says:

Come with me now to the room where I keep my thinking caps and let me pose this crazy, hypothetical question to you. Let's say Stephen gives a speech on about three of four issues and the reporters only wanted to report on his well known answer to a question that a journalist posed after the speech. Who would you say has a barely disguised agenda? Is it Stephen Harper? Actually no. It's my journalist friends, people for whom I have a warm affection, but on this issue they are political partisans of the first order.
