PC vs Wildrose
« on: April 17, 2012, 08:42:58 PM »
It seems like the Wildrose is sure showing itself in my neighborhood.  To be honest I don't know much about Wildrose.  What are the main pros and cons??  I had heard they are anti union from soemone the other day.  Not sure if it is true or not. 
To be honest I am willing to give anyone else a go.  I am not impressed much with the PC.  I see too much waste and corruption going on.  What are some reasons why I should give Wildrose a go?

One would certainly hope they are anti union ! They are a true conservative rooted party and as such unions are not their priority. With all do respect Nube Alberta is not the place to promote unions, they had their place and time but the 60's are over. One only has to look at BC and how the power of the unions have literally broke that province. I do realize you are a fire fighter and as such on a union but I can't help but think how much more cost effective that service would be if not for the unions. So ah, as a staunch supporter of the Wildrose I truley hope they are anti union.

Yes I am union but see both positive an negative with it.   It isn't going to be a big issue with me either or.  I just don't know much about them and would like some thoughts.  To me they feel more honest than other parties for some reason.  You seem to know a bit about them Walleyes.  Tell us a few things that you like.

I would sure like to see some changes with the SRD especially changes to the ridiculous management of sport fishing here regarding the glorification and extreme control of walleye fishing. Elimination of the walleye draw and 3 free walleye tags with the purchase of a fishing license to be used in the over managed walleye lakes. At least then I can take my kids fishing close to home and bring something home for the table rather than having to travel up north to eat a walleye.

For me its simple, they are getting back to our true conservative roots, less government, open transparency, more control in the hands of the voting public, property rights back to the land owners. In this day and age of Liberalism run amuck we need a strong conservative stronghold and what better place to have it other than the heart and the life blood of the country. We need the rulers of free enterprise running the heart of free enterprise. Listen cut out all the election bull shit and promises a monkey could make this province tick fiscally Ralph Cline proved that this is about preserving conservatism boys, that's what's at stake here, not whether or not we get 300 bucks in the mail or a new school on north Edmonton or what ever. Its an idealism, its a way of life that we have to preserve. You can think of it as trivial as you want but for myself and quite a few others its much deeper than that.

Well said Walleyes.

For me it's very simple.  Wildrose represents everything that is and ever was good and true about Alberta, wishing to foster all the things that make this province the envy of the world.  Forget the oilpatch for a moment.  Alberta was the envy of the world before we knew we were sitting on oil and gas.
It's the people, and the values we share.   Here everyone has always been judged ONLY by their actions, despite what the elitists say.  That's the reason people say immigrants don't change Alberta, Alberta changes immigrants.
I like to come from a place where a man who respects women, protects children, has a passion for the outdoors, helps those in need without being asked or needing to brag about it, is self sufficient, 100% reliable, and whose word is his bond;  is a good thing.

The pcs under redford do not like Alberta as I described above.  They feel bigger government is better government, and by heavily taxing the population they can then coerce social change as they see fit by offering tax credits/rebates for whatever direction they wish society to go.  These social engineers do not feel you are capable of making the right decisions for you and your family.  They feel they need to make them for you.

I'm not even going to get in to how the pc's have taken away all property rights in the province and have been padding the pockets of themselves and their friends in a brass and shameless manner.  It's so outlandish you wouldn't believe me, so don't.  Look for yourself, Bills:  C-36, C-50, C-19, C-24.

Redfords only been right about one thing this election:  She's said this election is about the future of Alberta.
The choice is yours.  Vote Wildrose for Freedom, Vote pc to have your freedom dictated.

It's really that simple.

Are the Wildrose the end all to be all?  Of course not, but they aren't trying to take my land away or legislating what I can or can't teach my children, either.

The more I learn about the WR I aggree there are a lot of good things but there are also a few that scare the heck out of me and not sure what to think.  1 issue is the abolishment of unions and not sure how that would affect things for a lot of people.  The other is a big concern and I need to study up on it more but I wonder how pension plans would stand up with the ideas they have.  It seems like they are anti pension in their thinking.

Did any of you guys catch the latest statement by Redford, she openly stated that she could get along with the Liberals and NDP in parliment but not the Wildrose. What ?? this is supposed to be a Conservative party, she is openly stating that they are more left than right !!! this doesn't scare anyone ?? we all know what the left view on hunting and gun ownership is.. Wake up people while you still can.

Nube I highly doubt the Wildrose has any intention of abolishing long standing public service unions, this would be suicide for any party to attempt. No just scare tactics put out there by a scared governments.

Voted Thursday.  Not PC either.  I voted WR.

Sent an e-mail to Minister Oberle asking questions about the pheasant release program and he had F&W call me to talk.  The one big question I specifically asked is "What is the PC party going to do for the hunters and outdoorspeople of Alberta in order to keep our vote?"

The fella that called had no control of finances or decisions and had no idea whether or not the program would run next year.

Didn't answer a thing for me so.....WR it is!
If you open your mouth without thinking too often, you can expect to taste some toe-jam.
