The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

A Parliament of Whores

I swiped that title from P.J. O’Rourke’s fine work on the sale of the democratic system to opportunistic political whores… seemed an accurate portrayal of the current illegitimately sitting minority liberal regime.

I have had deep reservations about the situational ethics displayed in both Ottawa and the modern Liberal political creed in general, but Belinda Stronach’s defection to the ranks of an illegitimately unconstitutionally governing cabal has set a new low in ethical standards.

My head is spinning at the media acceptance of this macabre theater the Martin liberals are running as they continue to sit after loss of confidence with open bribery to the opposition and the electorate. Belinda’s defection tells me she also has total contempt for proper constitutional and parliamentary convention and will prostitute her support to the highest bidder.

She may just be a victim of “blonde syndrome” but the effect is the same. She is not only supporting an illegitimate government, but expanding the convention of vote/support buying with bribery….in effect democratic harlotry. Canadian representative democracy has been deeply compromised by an unconstitutionally sitting parliament that offers and takes bribes to stay in power….a corrupt government in open defiance of non confidence that buys support for it’s illegitimate governing from unprincipled opposition members who are willing to sell their vote for personal gain.

Stronach is now among the ranks of the purchased and the will of her constituents was suspended for the brokering of her vote for her own personal gains…..utterly contemptible!

I suppose on a personal level this defection comes as no surprise to me. Having had contact with Stronach’s handlers in the CPC leadership race, I can state she was never aligned with the basic principles of the party. She was also focused on leadership and influence above any civilly spirited rationale for entering parliament.

Her campaign team is a who’s who of ex Liberal insiders, fixers and spinners….not to mention some Powercor alumnus who were setting strategy ( and were probably responsible for the membership sales fraud that was caught in the Quebec side of her Campaign). The main ideological conflict I can cite is the fact she is openly a corporate welfare state liberal...she thinks government should subsidize/intervene in selective private industry or nationalize some of it....and from the very ideologically confused speeches she's given on the matter, I'd say she makes no real distinction between the motives and purpose of government and the interests and motives of industry and the market place.

She would do well in the late 40s-50s state industrial expansion in the old soviet nations....same ideas repackaged in fluffy convoluted so-called “social liberal” vernacular.

Good riddance. The last thing a free market, small government, grass roots conservative party needs is a corporate welfare state liberal trolling her daddy's money to buy the party in a bid to expand personal and family business fortunes.

It's bad enough the Liberals are the political wing of Desmarais they are the potential political patronage tool of Magna international.

Is there enough tranquilizer in our drinking water that we are too dozed-out to see this obvious crass political-corporate insider ploy?

Is there enough partisan manipulation from our media to cover over the fact Canadian democracy consists of buyers and sellers of votes…. a Parliament of Whores?

I've got to echo your sentiments... I am dumbstruck that so many Canadians are still drawing moral equivelance between corruption and every other normal political reality. Have we sunk so low that corruption is considered normal, is considered tolerable to say, Stephen Harper or Jack Layton. Corruption trumps virtually all other issues, yet the millions of Canadians seem willing to accept it.

The bottom line is that if they DO accept it, that will precipitate the end of the confederation.

But we really don't expect myopic self interested liberal whores to long as the nanny state squirts a little ill gotten milk their way screw responsible ethical government.

from the Lampert Royal Commission on Financial Management and Accountability reported in 1979:
"After two years of careful study and consideration, we have reached the deeply held conviction that the serious malaise pervading the management of government stems fundamentally from a grave weakening, and in some cases an almost total breakdown, in the chain of accountability, first within the government, and second, in the accountability of government to Parliament and ultimately to the Canadian people."

and in the following 25 years, it has become progressively worse- anyone who actually believes that can be fixed, by talking, voting, or complaining, has got something very seriously wrong with their head.
