This is good.

Over 1/3rd support us, and with a successful fall session in parliament we could get back into the 40s numbers, and have a good shot at a majority!

Yes, nothing more important than that majority. Not principle, not policy, not conservatism.

It is certainly better than what we had. Don't need to be all doom and gloom.

With the possible exception of the income trust decision, this has been a very principled government (there's an argument to be had there, but let's not go there). I'd like to see more conservatism and some fresh policy ideas, but there's a balance to be had between purity and electability. I think this government is pretty close.

I have some hope for the next throne speech(but i did for the last budget to). If the tax cuts and spending cuts are not mentioned in the speech I will meet you in some bar to drown our sorrows. I'm getting a little antsy waiting for a truly conservative stance from this government too.

I wrote about this before I find the CPC does best (in the polls and media) when they are leading with true conservative policy. It is easier to sell this message when you beleive in it then when you are pandering to polls. This whole cabinet shuffle was over communication yesterday, which in my mind needed to be done.

Personaly I think we should stick with the fixed election date if we can !
That gives Mr. Harper plenty of time to stand up for Canada and build real support !

1/3rd support the Conservative Party now consider:

how many of that are centralists?
how many are actual Conservatives?

that leaves room for another 2/3rds which are either undecided or are Liberals
now how many centralists are actually Liberals who vote Conservative because the left wing is simply too far left?

What does that say about the reality?

Even if harper wins a majority will Canadians actually get a true blue Conservative platform or will we get social Liberal policies with fiscal Conservatism?

Do we need any government which engages in "social engineering" whether that's pushing to the left OR the right? How about a government which sticks to the traditional role of government for a change? I'm really tired of governments who keep taxing the life out of the nation.

Here's a suggestion which would secure a majority government for any party with enough balls to run it: try trimming the gold-plated pension plan for MPs to bring it back within industry standards.

Have you ever tried to figure out what members of Parliament get paid and what kind of pension they get upon retiring? Needless to say, they don't make that kind of information easily accessible. I just did a bit of google-fu and found the "Members of Parliament Retiring Allowances Act" but, like most Acts, it's in legalese...

Try asking your last Lieberal government where the money went.

It's sad that this blog has been taken over by someone so disresptful.
