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.

Outsiders see our decay

I have to address the rose colored glasses report that a political partisan was propagating to all nonconformist Cnadian blogs on Dominion day. The gist of the message is what we have expected from the vacant left and robotic partisanism that now masquerades as Canadian patriotism. It proposed to discount dissenting opinion of Canada's image which had been forwarded by the personal experiences of jaded Canadian patriots, with another glib flakey polling of foreigners that was crafted to propagte the myth that Canada is the best nation in the planet...bla bla bla.

Well here's one back at you robotic beercan instant patriots....you may have trouble with it as the observasions are real and it requires some objective intellect and reason to grasp the concepts raised in this article....So park the indoctrinated partisan refexive reactionary screed and try to understand that the single party state is a dangerous slope we are on.

A light passage from this expat's observation on the decay of Canadian democracy:

"To many non-Canadian eyes, Canada looks a lot like a one-party state, albeit of the elected variety. Over the last 40 years, the Liberals have been in power for all but what, about 10 years? People here in Australia ask me how one political party can be in power that long without corruption creeping in. I generally change the subject at that point."

This seems to concur with what I get from both my American clients as well as the British I interface with. Maybe the rose colored "polls" are taken among foreign people who have no knowledge or economic contact with Canada.

At what point will we begin to bear arms and take our country back?

richard- are those arms registered?....Sorry, ya left it wide open... ;-)
Bearing arms could happen at any time, and it won't take much of a spark. The anger level is huge right now.

Pretty sad when someone who hasn't been here for that period thinks we've sunk to moonbat central, or the mini UN socialist experiment.

Question for you folks: When the Supremes just ruled on the Chaouilli case and upheld the right to private insurance, they managed to give credence to the constitution of Quebec.We dont have a constitution here in Alberta and maybe its time we had one. Ted Morton once mentioned it in regard to SSM. So would it help us at all, or would it be a good first step on the road to separation??

mikep,

I don't think they can without breaking the current constitutional agreement with Canada, which would mean separation, or separation with association. I think P.E.T. screwed all the provinces on that one when they signed on. The only one who didn't sign on was Quebec, who still is under the original BNA act.

This may answer some questions about an Alberta constitution:

So we could have a constitution if we wanted one. All I am really looking for is something to light a fire under Albertan arses. I mean here is Ralph fuckin Klein signing a day care agreement with those Fed assholes. Can you believe it?? The Feds can ride this one into the next election. Hey Albertans are with us on day care.
I wanna separate and this jerk Klein is kissing ass in Ottawa. urghh.

Mike: part of the reason we are in this shit-mess of jurisdictional raiding from Ottawa is because of the crass greed and irresponsibility of provincial politicians who give away provincial jurisdictions for a wad of fed cash ( which was stolen from the province in the first place)

Ralph is not the man to stand up for Alberta and build it's future....he's last century's spinless mealy mouthed politico...Alberta needs a statesman with vision...not a spineless toadie.
