I'm sure you can all guess where I stand based on my username. ;-)

No real name here, for now... at least not until after the next election. But I'll intro myself none the less...

I go by Christian Conservative, a member (I hope in good standing!) of the Blogging Tories. Been blogging since early 2005. I am a member in good standing of the Conservative Party of Canada, and am a full flegded So-Con. I am a Conservative for ideological reasons, and as such, I take firm stands on most issues... sorry Dan. ;-)

I am a member of the board for my local CPC EDA, and am actively working to unseat our Liberal MP in the next Federal Election.

I am a born-again Christian, and am involved in politics to ensure that the Christian world-view is at least acknowledged, at a time when the left would like nothing more than to silence those of faith once and for all.

I believe that the left's various experiments with socialism have been an utter failure, and are in fact the root cause of the majority of problems faced in Canada today. I believe that personal responsiblity is the best means of dealing with social problems, but I have no intentions of trying to force my views on anyone. (though I do firmly believe that true and genuine Christianity would solve the problems of the world) ;-)

The Lord Jesus Christ taught us to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I believe that we ought to take care of those who cannot care for themselves, but we don't need bloated government programs to accomplish that. I believe that Canadians are becoming more and more "unCanadian", in that we're becoming meaner, less caring, and selfish... and it's the left's fault, not the right! The "what's in it for me" attitude is beginning to permeate our culture due to leftist thinking... and the old style "Canadian" values of helping our fellow man, caring for others and sharing, (values that most Tories I know still have in abundance, whereas FEW on the left I see still have) are rapidly vanishing.

I believe that the current trend toward "Statism" is the root of our problems, which has only served to foster an unhealthy reliance on government programs. As such, I believe that P.E. Trudeau was the worst thing that could ever happen to Canada, (the more I read about him, the less I like him) and that PM Stephen Harper is the best thing to happen to Canada in the last 50 years (the more I read about him, the more I like him).

To sum up, I'll say in this... the Liberal Party of Canada is the most "unCanadian" bunch of people I have ever had dealings with. They desire power at all costs, once they have "The Precious", (the PMO) they use their power to benefit themselves, their families and their elitist friends, and don't want to "rock the boat" by actually addressing the problems of our nation. They govern based on what the latest headlines tell them, and have no interest in actually dealing with root causes of issues, just because the steps involved in solving those problems may not be popular. I have more respect for the NDP than I do the Liberals... at least the NDP are willing to take a stand, even if I disagree with it. Jello, nails, and walls come to mind when talking about the ideological stands of Liberals...

So, that's my intro. I'm not worried about rocking the boat, so long as we can get down and discuss ideas, share points of view, and tackle real issues without resorting to statements to the effect of "YOU'RE A NEO-CON BIGOT"! (I get that from time to time)

Besides, I don't fit the definition of a "Neo-Con"... a "neo-con" is a former liberal (leftist) who has converted to a conservative ideology. (or, as I like to view it, has come to their senses... LOL) I'm conservative through and through... always have been, likely always will be.

Comments? Fire away!

That was beautiful. It basically sums up my views on the Liberal party better than I feel capable. Bravo!

I'm glad to hear the first, and think you're right about the second.

Evangelicals and fundamentalists have to be careful about using the state to pursue or enforce their goals. Statism can be destructive, and that is true whether it is implemented by the religious right or by socialists.
