Is Justin On His Way Out According to Angus Reid

You all know how I feel about political polls. I believe polls should be taken with a grain of salt but at the same time they can be somewhat informative depending on the methodology etc.

Political polls are really not much good outside an election cycle.  They are just a snapshot in time and do give an indication what voters are thinking at the time.  In politics everything change overnight. But the latest poll out from Angus Reid paints a positive picture for Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives and for the Justin Trudeau Liberals, well it seems Canadians are starting to wake up and see Justin for what he really is especially given the fiasco of the trip to India where he essentially played Mr. Dress up where he used his children as props. The international media mocked him, what an embarrassment!

The Angus Reid poll shows the Conservatives are ten points ahead and the Liberals falling.

Even though this polls looks good for Conservatives, they could actually win a majority government if the election were held today. We have to remember the election is a year and a half year away and as we all know, anything can happen.  Just one week is an eternity in politics.

Don’t forget too that there will be anti-conservative foreign funded groups trying to influence the election as was found out what happened during the election in 2015.  There will be again, it’s already starting to influence the Ontario election which is to take place this June.

“During the 2015 election, Leadnow’s Vote Together campaign connected millions of people who wanted change with the information and tools they needed to defeat the Harper Conservatives.”

So there you go.  There’s also the media to think of.  They are an entity onto themselves. They hate conservatives and will as always campaign against us too.  Just because the polls look good now, don’t get too excited.  Think about it, there’s a whole list Andrew Scheer has to fight against.

1. Liberals

2. NDP

3. Media Party

4. Third party foreign funded anti-conservative advocacy groups

Liberals and NDP only have to fight against us and each other.  All these things we need to consider.  I’m hopeful.  I think Canadians are waking up and if Justin keeps up with all his foolishness…..I don’t see any indication it’s going to stop….Andrew has a good chance of becoming our Prime Minister Oct. 2019.

Caution On The Latest Poll Showing Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives Ahead

There has been a poll that just came out in the last few days that show the Conservative Party jumping ahead of the Liberals.  In that Forum Research poll it shows the CPC is at 43% vs LPC 38%

Toronto, January 31st – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1408 Canadian voters, amongst those decided and leaning, Conservative support has risen significantly and now 4 in 10 (43%) say they would support Scheer’s party if an election were held today. Just under 4 in 10 (38%) say they would support Trudeau’s Liberals. Conservative support (43%) is up four points over December (Dec 15: 39%). Liberal support (38%) is unchanged since December (Dec 15: 38%). Support for the NDP is just over 1 in 10 (12%) and, like the Liberals, hasn’t changed at all since December (Dec 15: 12%). Few say they would support the Green (3%), which is almost half what their support was in December (Dec 15: 5%), the Bloc sees a similar decline (3%) (Dec 15: 6%). Almost no one says they would support another party (0%).

This poll looks great and it seems the people are waking up but I would add a word of caution. Let’s not get too excited.  The election is over a year away and any poll is just a snapshot in time. You know what they say that a week in politics is an eternity.  Anything can happen.

Also we need to see more polls to see if this is a trend or if it’s just outlier.   Yes  this current poll is good news and great for our moral but there is much still  to do.

It’s clear that Justin Trudeau and his party are out of touch with Canadians that everything they’re doing is harming the country at every turn.  Trudeau himself is arrogant and keeps making gaffe after gaffe. Even with all the mistakes the Liberals are making, we cannot rely on that.  The CPC numbers are up but as this poll also found was that  voters still don’t know much about Andrew Scheer so he needs to get out there and make a little noise. Hob knob with regular voters, maybe some town halls or meet and greets etc.

Andrew Scheer sees approval from just over one-quarter (28%) and disapproval of the same proportion (29%). To the plurality, however, (43%) he remains an unknown, with the respondent saying do not know. His net favourable score is -1. Scheer’s support is effectively unchanged since December, with his approval (Dec 15: 28%) and disapproval (Dec 15: 28%) basically unmoved.

We cannot rely on the media to help us, they basically are in the tank for the Liberals so it’s up to us to keep waking people up with the truth.  There’s no excuse for any conservative out there not to pitch in.  We have countless resources at our disposal, we need to use them. The best resource we have is our brain and our mouth.  Let’s get to work!

 

 

 

My Advice For Andrew Scheer

 

 

First of all I would like to wish everyone Happy New Year!  I haven’t posted liked I hope I would when I started this blog back up but I got very busy and then I got sick.  Life just got in the way.  It’s a new year now and time to fire this site on a more regular basis.  Now back to the point I wanted to make on this post…..

Andrew Scheer was chosen leader of the Conservative Party of Canada last spring. He doesn’t seem to catching on with the voters like he should be if he really wants to be the next PM in 2019.  He barely won the leadership by a razor thin margin with just a few votes over “Mad Max,” Maxime Bernier.  We have more than 1 year until the next federal election and much work to do if  we want to make sure Justin Trudeau does not get a second term, he’s been a total disaster.

We can’t just allow Trudeau to get even a minority government because the NDP will prop the Liberals up. More disaster for Canada.  Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives MUST win a majority.  Here are a few of my suggestions.

1. Don’t try and curry favor with the media.  We all know the main stream media hates conservatives. They will always hate conservatives.  Be civil but call them out when need be.  Use the media to your advantage.

2. He must not be afraid to come out with some bold conservative ideas. Maybe get Maxime Bernier to help, he had some good ideas that were different and bold.  Andrew needs to remember that he won the leadership by just a razor’s edge.

3. Put Canada first. I think most Canadians are sick and tired of the current government putting Canada and Canadians last catering and giving our money away to almost everyone else but their own country just to obtain a seat on the UN security council.

4. Don’t go Liberal lite.  That will only alienate supporters.  Why go for liberal lite when you can have the real deal with the Liberal Party  Offer the voters a real alternative.

5.This goes for all Conservatives, get a back bone and fight back when  being attacked.  The media and opponents always like to set a false narratives meant to destroy us that Andrew and his team need to get ahead of and stop when anything negative comes out.  In the past Conservatives have always been cowardly and allowed those lies fester until it’s almost too late to counter especially in this day and age of the 24hr. news cycle and 15 second sound bites.  By time the fake news is countered, the public has already formed an opinion.  Sometimes it’s ok to take the gloves off.

6. Listen to regular people not the elites. We the regular people are the most affected by government policy. We are the ones who pay the bills through our earned money that is taken from us through various forms of taxation.

7. Get some fire in the belly, some passion!  I sense he’s lacking in that department somewhat. I’m not denying he doesn’t love this country and is not patriotic. I’m sure he is but he needs to show it more.

8. Communications. One thing the Conservative Party has always been terrible at. They’re not good at getting their message out.  I have to admit the left has done a good job in that area.  They appeal to the emotions.  Voters like to be heard on a personal level.  Show you care.  Speak the voter’s language, that’s how you connect.

9. Be humble. Don’t put yourself on a pedestal. We have enough of that arrogance and narcissism right now and we are sick of it!

Scheer’s CPC cannot just take for granted because of Trudeau and his government’s incompetency and ethical issues that keep cropping up that alone is going hand him the keys to the Prime Minister’s office. He has an uphill battle.  He has to fight and counter not only the Liberals  but the media and other groups that will be out in full force with lies and innuendo. It will take a  lot of hard work not just from  the leader but for the entire team including us, the grass root supporters.  We need to let Andrew and the party brass know what our concerns are but we need to show our support as well and we have to start now if we want a chance of ridding the country of the Trudeau regime and the damage he’s doing to this great country.

 

Conservative Supporters, It’s Time to Get our Act Together

I know I haven’t posted in a long, long time.  I’ve had a lot going on in my life the passed few months. I finally had my dental implants replaced on top earlier and am still going through the process and healing, was busy with family issues, gardening and other things.  I will do a separate post about the dental implants and how that’s going but this post is really about how we conservative supporters both in Alberta and federally get our act together and start to work hard towards defeating Rachel Notley and her wrecking and Justin Trudeau and his cabal in the up coming elections in 2019.  I know it seems like still a long ways off but really it isn’t, both elections will be here before we know it and there is much to do. It takes time to prepare.  The Alberta provincial election will be in the spring of 2019 and the federal election will be October 21, 2019.

Both Notley and Trudeau have done so much damage we cannot tolerate another term of either of them.  We cannot allow either one of them to get re-elected.  If you look the latest polls, they look fairly well for conservatives both federally and provincially but we must take the polls as a grain of salt and not rest on our laurels. To take things for granted will not get Jason Kenny’s UCP or Andrew Scheer’s CPC elected.  Both of them need every grassroot conservative soldier on the ground to work hard starting now!

Each one of us can do something.  Join your local electoral district riding association and get involved. Call the UCP HQ and or CPC HQ ask what you can do to help. Maybe you can knock on doors or make phone calls. Or maybe you can help get the vote out on election day.  You can get the message out by speaking directly to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and relatives.  Call into the talk shows. Start a blog, get on Periscope, Youtube, etc.  Whenever there is a rally near you, try and attend and show your support. The fact is we must all do our part.  We cannot sit back, do nothing, and hope that everything works out. If each one of us do something we will win, if we don’t well you can easily predict the outcome.

We have to be prepared for unions, special interest groups etc. that spending a lot of money trying to prevent Jason Kenny’s UCP and Andrew Scheer’s CPC from gaining office.  We have to be ready to counteract.

Don’t forget also we have the media against us.  They hate conservatives and will actively campaign against us in favor of their party and leader on the left. Be ready for the lies, the spin, the out right fake news.  We’re going to have anticipate it and be ready to immediately fight back with the truth getting it out there and making it go viral.

I think for all you Ontarians, you have an eletction next year.  You have your chance to get rid of Kathleen Wynne. You must not let grass grow under your feet if you want to defeat her. You must get busy. I’m sure unions etc. will be in full force in Ontario as well to make sure Patrick Brown’s PC’s don’t elected.

So conservatives, gird your loins and get ready for battle! We have to take the country back! Don’t be afraid to stand up for your province and your country. Don’t be afraid to show your patriotism!

 

Conservatives Have to Rally Behind the New Leader

The leadership race is now over, the new leader has been chosen. There are Conservative members out there who are not happy their candidate did not win. I’m one of them. I voted for Maxime Bernier. He lost just being edged out by Andrew Scheer. I thought Mad Max was going to win.  He didn’t.  Sure I was disappointed but only for a short time.  We have a new leader and we have to live with it.

Our country is going to hell in a hand basket very quickly with Justin Trudeau and Liberals in charge it’s not even funny.  We have big problems like debt and deficit, immigration and security issues, our freedom of speech is being eroded, families are suffering because of the cost of living with taxes being jacked up.  Andrew Scheer as our leader is our only hope to getting our country back on track.

I can get behind him because he believes in limited government, low taxes, keeping us safe, pipelines, and growing our economy to see that we prosper.

I know I don’t want another four years of Justin Trudeau.  Has and will continue to be a disaster for the country.  We conservatives need to get together, support our new leader and work towards winning the next election.  Don’t forget it’s just not the Liberals we’re fighting against, we also fighting against the biased lying media who will try to throw everything they can think of to tarnish Scheer so he doesn’t become our next PM. We have 2 1/2 years, seems like a long time but it’s really not. We’ve all had our little pity party now it’s time to get to work!  You want to win the next election or not?

Remember, a house divided against it’s self will not stand!

Alberta Wildrose and Progressive Conservatives Have a Tentative Deal

Jason Kenny, Leader of the Alberta Progressive Conservatives and Brian Jean Leader of the Wildrose Party announced yesterday a tentative deal to merge the two parties into one.  The name of the new party would be the United Conservatives.

Although it’s a positive move in Alberta politics, there is still plenty that needs to be done before we can be breath a sigh of relief.  The deal still has to be ratified by members of both parties with at least 75% approval.  That vote will take place in July.  They’ll need to establish an executive and constituency boards. Next  a leader will have to be chosen. The leader of the new party will chosen at a convention in October.  Then they come up with platform and find candidates all in time for the next election in 2019.  So there is still a lot of sausage that needs to be made.

I for one am pleased by this effort by Jason Kenny, Brian Jean and the committee who came up with this tentative deal.  It’s a good first step into getting rid of the destructive Rachel Notley and her NDP wrecking crew.  All conservative minded individuals should get on board and support this because without a united conservative party, the NDP will most likely get another term.  Think about that!

 

Which Conservative Leadership Candidate Do You Align Yourself With The Most?

 

As we are all well aware there is a Conservative leadership race going on right now and May 27 is the big day in which a new leader will be elected.

In the mean head on over to Poletical have some fun taking this quiz to see which candidate you agree with the most.  When I took this quiz I found I agreed with Maxime Bernier.  By the way he’s been my choice almost from the beginning of this race.
