The brilliant Andrew Breitbart asked this very obvious question and Wildrosers should think about it.
Rick “scribbler” Bell had an interesting scoop the other day on Daniel Smith’s interview with a lesbian group. (here is her response) Apparently it seemed like she committed the party to the very sex change funding we have right now. –Funding that was canceled by the Progs and then reinstated to presumably draw the ire of homophobes.
The troubling news is that the PCs believe their own propaganda. You can’t make good decisions if your model of the world is flawed. The progs will find themselves surprised again and again. I’ll expand on this another time, though the day will come when PC delusions come due with interest.
But today I’m talking about the Wildrose Party. Today I’m soul searching. See I’m a believer in Democracy. The people are always right. As terrible as Obama is, Americans could not rightly reward the incompetence of the Bush administration. I wouldn’t have. So why was the corruption and incompetence of the Alberta PC party rewarded?
One reason was the old fears brought to light by a Christian preacher’s old blog. You remember the “lake of fire” hoopla I’m sure. I didn’t care. Surprise, a priest believes in his religion. -But it did give credence to the old lies about the right. We’re all Nazis didn’t you know.
So is this what the Wildrose is? Am I the one with the flawed world view? Have I believed my own propaganda? Have I hitched my wagon to a Nazi train? This is the question the electorate has asked us Wildrosers.
No! The answer is no. -Emphatically no. -Obviously no. -At least for my part. I can’t be a party to anything that would make the answer to any of the above questions a yes.
I’m an Atheist. Outnumbered by even Gay believers (I think). Atheist conservatives are a super-minority; a minority of a minority. I’m not interested in oppressing anyone. The way leftist Atheists behave, we’ve got some oppression coming to us. Force belief on someone else and you open the door to some belief being forced on you. If you don’t own your own mind, what can you own?
So when a preacher preaches about something that has no bearing on the here and now. So? What of it? It’s like he’s gay. Your sexual preference has no bearing either. Government is about the here and now and about the future in the real world. Sex and the afterlife have as much to do with good policy and good government as the colour of my socks.
Let me say this then: Wildrose is Gay. We’ve got a pretty pink flower as our symbol. So? Problem? We talk the talk. If we don’t walk the walk, that in a nutshell is the idea of the hidden agenda slur. Do not tolerate these insults.
We are here to free the markets. We are here to unleash the creative spirit that is a benefit to all mankind. We are here to give each individual their own life and destiny back to them. That is what Wildrose is and it includes all sexual orientations and all belief systems.
Bigots and liars who say otherwise be damned –in the here and now.
note: I'm strait. I may have made it ambiguous but again it doesn't matter unless we are talking about sex now does it?
