Remember the 100 reasons to vote Conservative on October 19th, 2015

The anti-Harper Conservative Government spin is at its peak and is ugly, to say the least. Not only is it ugly, but most is either not true, exaggerated, or out of context. Mike Duffy, for example, has nothing to do with the Conservative record any more than the allegations against Mac Harb relate directly to the Liberals. In both cases, those men made individual decisions and now have to answer for them.

But, perhaps worst of all, is how nasty things are getting in the blogosphere. I am finding, for example, a lot of “anonymous” commenters leaving messages that are clearly suffering from Harper Derangement Syndrome (HDS) — comments that I do not publish but have to read and moderate.

To them, I say the following: Your emotional anger is not allowing you to look rationally at the consequences of your NOT voting for your Tory candidate. And, what might those consequences look like?

  • The HST/GST back up to 15%/7%.
  • Cancelled income tax cuts.
  • Cancelled income tax credits.
  • Cancelled family income splitting.
  • Cancelled senior income splitting.
  • Cancelled pension tax credit.
  • Added new carbon taxes.

Think I am exaggerating? Those items are just the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday, for example, at the Liberal announcement of their costing, their member said nothing was off the table. Nothing! And, as far as the NDP, just remember the recent Leap Manifesto and know the reality of the NDP ideology.

In other words, people need to look at what will happen to this country if they vote for the NDP or Trudeau Liberals — which are no longer the Liberals we knew from the 1970s through the 1990s. Both parties now have ideologies that have been discredited, be it socialism in the extreme or global warming/climate change theory. I mean, the essence of climate is that it is always changing and has been since animals and people have roamed our planet.

Vote well Canada. Don’t shoot yourself in your foot as there is no redo until another election is held. Remember as well that, no matter what the naysayers claim, there are at least 100 reasons to vote for your Conservative candidate.

Opposition AND media versus Conservative Party on #Elxn42 spending

This morning I watched CBC Newsworld when Prime Minister Harper gave his announcement outside Rideau Hall — that #Elxn42 and a vote on October 19th, 2015 is now formally underway. I thought the PM’s message was clear and well defended.

Yet, the post-questions and analysis of the answers to leading questions were a petty, whiny embarrassment. No wonder the PM doesn’t like media scrums!

For example, there seemed to be a deliberate attempt to confuse the reality that the political parties have to spend their own money during the election versus what they might get back later in Elections Canada rebates.

Which had nothing to do with what the PM was actually suggesting — that Messrs Mulcair and Trudeau had been criss-crossing Canada over the last few weeks on the taxpayers dime — getting a free ride as it were — instead of having to use the money raised by their political parties.

Should the PM have said something about the increase in potential rebates after the election, given the length of this election campaign? Perhaps. But, would it have made any difference? Would the media have explained that the party subsidy is gone? No. Would the media have found another way of twisting the PMs words? Absolutely. One thing they didn’t do, for example, was call the other party leaders out on that free ride I mentioned above.

The crux of the matter is that during #Elxn42 the Conservative Party of Canada is not only running against the opposition parties but also against the selective and collectively anti-Conservative biased reporting of the mainstream media. Hopefully, Canadians will remember that on October 19th and vote for their Conservative candidate!
