From the same article








Oh Moose! You really should dig a little DEEPER! IN 1993


Lyin` Brian Mulroney stepped down as Cdn PM and turned the Conservative party over to Kim Campbell



who promptly demonstrated that she DID NOT HAVE THE BRAINS



to be a back bencher much less the leader of the country!


You should recall that Moron Mulroney spent so WILDLY that he even amazed the LIE-berals with his fiscal madness!


Mulroney left so much debt that the Conservative party tore itself to pieces - with Red Tories like Joe Clark advocating



that TRUE CONSERVATIVES would never join or support Manning and Reform!


It is also worth recalling that it was Moron Mulroney who dumped the GST on us!


Cdn debts had reached such a point that Mulroney was forced to CHOOSE: either admit that Canada was BANKRUPT - and take



action to go to war with civil service union HOGS as Harper did - to freeze their wages - OR Mulroney COULD



make major changes to the Cdn economy and open up Canada EVEN FURTHER to Yankee ownership!



Slick talking LAWYER Mulroney THOUGHT he could balance off all the competing demands - of Cdns for tax relief; of HOGS for more



gravy; of Yankees for some debt repayment!



Unfortunately Mulroney succeeded only in persuading Cdn Conservatives that the survival of their party REQUIRED



they join Reform!


Moron Mulroney ALIENATED TRUE Conservatives and DID NOT placate HOGS! It was a DOUBLE LOSS!


True Conservatives scorned the shameless debt and HOGS objected to getting hit with GST!



If you will recall - LIE-beral Jean Chretien campaigned ON A PROMISE TO KILL THE GST - and a LOT OF CDNS LIKED THAT!


And in typical fashion - after he was elected - he told us we COULD NOT AFFORD to kill the tax!


LIE-berals DID NOT VOLUNTARILY ADOPT Conservative frugal ways!


It was FORCED ONTO LIE-berals by our bankrupt status!


And as soon as growing oil revenues permitted - LIE-berals ran right out and BURIED US IN DEBT YET AGAIN!


And that brought Stephen Harper into power to restore logic and order!


Things got so INSANE under LIE-beral Chretien that even the LIE-beral loving Toronto Star ran photos of



LAID OFF CIVIL SERVICE UNION HOGS lounging around union halls and warehouses etc!


There was NO WORK FOR THEM - BUT GOVT WAS REQUIRED TO PAY THEM under HOG Union agreements



until such time as they got another job just as good as the former govt ones! And YOU KNOW that did not happen!


YES! LIE-berals actually paid HOGS to lounge around playing cards and sleeping!



They say history repeats itself - and here we are - BURIED IN DEBT YET AGAIN!


And LIE-beral govt is trying to defend itself while PAYING HOGS THEIR FULL PAY to lounge around playing cards and walking



their dogs and etc!


While handing out crumbs to ordinary people - many of whom have NO CHOICE but to sell us groceries and tend to old folks and etc!


No matter the medical risk!



While our LIE-beral overlords gracelessly accept YET ANOTHER PAY RAISE!

I didn't make the map, but if you've got 'Paint' on your laptop or PC, you can fill them in.

Well, I do have paint on my laptop (little accident there), but I don't see how that's gonna help.

There is a huge contingent of Reformers though, with a basis of Western concerns within the Dominion of Canada, including MP's looking at alternatives to staying within Canada's jurisdiction. See the Buffalo declaration.

Not even one candidate for separation.

That's how non-existant western separation really is.

it is an unhappy Alberta FACT that economic desperation and growing anger certainly advocate for CHANGE!


But the equally salient FACT is that Wexit Wingnuts are selling a bill of FAKE GOODS!


Wexit has AMPLE ABILITY to make things even worse!


But WEXIT holds VERY LITTLE CAPACITY to make anything better!


Only a Wexit Wingnut would think that running away from home would win a better deal from LIE-berals who are already acting like



DEADBEAT PARENTS in their treatment of the Alberta political "child"!!


LIE-berals have PROVED they delight in screwing the PROVINCE of Alberta!



So WHAT IS TO STOP THEM FROM REALLY SCREWING THE REPUBLIC OF ALBERTA?


It is at this point that Wexit Wingnuts SHUT OFF THEIR EARS AND THEIR BRAIN!

Ladders cause more deaths in the Canadian west than Ottawa.

Why don't you secede from ladders?

Poor Wexit Wingnut! He has nothing but nonsense to comfort his illogical position!


I aint going anywhere!


And NEITHER IS ALBERTA!


What happens in your fevered imagination DOES NOT COUNT!


Get back in your clown car and offer comfort to your fellow Wingnuts!

Just because no one ran as a separatist does not mean they are not sympathetic to the cause.

Yeah, but how can you tell when you've done so. It ain't like the foam around his mouth isn't a permanent feature.

The evidence is in the length and number of fully capitalized words in his rant... i suspect that there is also a direct correlation to the aforementioned and his need for blood pressure medication to be administered

Well, as long as it don't negatively interact with the anti-psychotics.

No thanks, I am fine!





But the Wexit wingnut economic vision NEEDS A BIG CAN OF DRAINO!


Just to clear out all the SH+T!


it is absolutely ABSURD that a group of people who are getting ROYALLY SCREWED BY LIE-berals



would think they could get a BETTER DEAL by running away from home and COMPLETELY CLOSING



their influence on Cdn elections!


You aint getting much NOW out of Ottawa!



So please EXPLAIN HOW you think to get MORE by ending your habit of voting against LIE-berals!


And YES - I KNOW you plan to pay your way by selling oil!



But...............AINT THAT THE HEART of your current BEEF?????????


That YOU AINT SELLING ANY?????????????


I GET IT that Alberta voters are hugely distressed by how little influence they have in Ottawa!


Maybe you could explain how refusing to play the game at all will increase your status in the game????????

As always, hemerHOID is MUDDLED!



The truth is that the West wants HIM OUT!


Westerners would probably pay GOOD MONEY to get hemerHOID to move to Ontari-owe!


And WE would pay just as much to persuade him to go live in Quebec!

OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wexit Wingnuts DREAMING in technicolour!


Such pretty pictures! Just like watching The Wizard Of Oz - when Kansas is photographed



in black and white and OZ is photographed in Living Colour!


Wexit Wingnuts dream of creating a new republic SURROUNDED by hostile entities who are PREPARED TO LET



THE NEW REPUBLIC STARVE TO DEATH if it does not PAY ITS FULL SHARE OF DEBT!


You NEED a more logical deal from Ottawa - NOT some replay of Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee!
