How the Conservatives Became the Natural Governing Party of Canada

If that doesn’t work for you, a more literary explanation awaits on Raphael Alexander’s blog.

    I take it from that you mean that the Conservatives stole the face of the Liberals and rolled along acting and sounding like Liberals while leaving the Liberals speachless and faceless.

    Gerry Nichols and other real conservatives would surely agree with you on that one.

    In order to become the Natural Governing Party our left-plunging, conservative in name only (CINO) Prime Minister sold out both the base of his party and any principles he may have had.

    Its clear now that small-c fiscal, social and judicial conservatives are not represented in either the Canadian Parliament or the leadership of the Conservative Party. Harper has plunged so far to the left that the results of the next election between the Liberals and Conservatives won’t matter. So genuine small-c conservatives will remain at home next election day and then demand a leadership convention in order to take back our party from the leftists who now lead it!

    A real conservative is what? an old PC, an old Reform?
    Those, like Gerry Nichols, who talk of ‘real conservatives’ are just like the Liberals and their Liberal Canada and Liberal Values thinking they speak for all Canadians.

    Well, I’m what I consider a ‘real Conservative’ , and I like center-right.
    I like where PMSH has taken the country, a reborn patriotism, off the fence foriegn policy, trade with the America’s, rebalancing our courts to protect the victim….etc
    and I am confident that this Conservative government will do the fat trimming that has been needed for decades.

    Canadians are ready for ‘this’ Conservative government.

    I am a real conservative – somebody that wants social and fiscal conservatism. But, unlike most I agree to use the power of the state to get there, like liberals have used it to implement liberalism.

    Don’t we have to form and hold a solid majority before we can claim to be the new ‘natural governing party’? We’re getting ahead of ourselves here.

    Much too premature and early to call the Conservatives the new governing party. They’ve been governing for less than 4 years and the Liberals remain afloat despite internal turmoil.

    Why can’t a government winning minorities be considered
    the natural governing party?
    The party would still be the first choice for government.

    You can be considered the governing party, but the natural governing party is a dumb term in the first place and certainly shouldn’t be used after 3/4 years. The Conservatives have been in power for what, 17 of the past 50 years? A minority government with less than 40% of the vote is natural party? Give me a break.

    I am no fan of any party at the moment.

    I hate that term “Natural Governing Party.” There isn’t one. Its an attitude. Its a Liberal attitude of entitlement. Woe to any conservative who starts to think this way.

    Sorry Mr. Narvey but this one is a little off the mark.
