RON CHRISTENSEN bleated: “Good riddance to a social deviant who was a serial liar and had a desire to take away constitutional rights given to Canadians by PET. PET saw assholes like Harper coming and protected us with the Charter and Constituion.”

So….to put this in pespective, removing individual property rights from Canadians vis-a-vis the consitution is protecting Canadians? Delusional!

I can judge by your comments that it is YOU who is the idiot.

You are typical of CINOs; you claim to be a conservative, but you lack the balls to be one.

Kenney has much to account for in his policy positions and his behavior. Right now, his silence speaks volumes about his concealed intentions. He cannot be trusted for that reason alone.

I suggest you grow a pair and see what your ignorance has been denying you.

And now we have the son of a champagne socialist, Justin, born into wealth and arrogant and smug, just like dad whom will quite possibly put the final nail in the coffin using the same hammer his father used. Many Canadians will regret the day that a mere 39% of Canadians elected another Trudeau into office. Just watch and see.

I believe Harper did do some good for our country. He led us through a recession and Canada remained financially secure, which many countries were unable to do.

We need to remember that Trudeau Senior nearly bankrupted this country. PET nearly bankrupted Canada. Inflation and interest rates destroyed many businesses. He was an arrogant man who also pushed bilingualism on Canada. Now there is so many extremely talented Canadians put there who have no chance to qualify for Canada’s highest office because of Trudeau and his forcing of the French language on us. If you are not fluently French, you cannot even be a Supreme Court Judge. And now we have the

Good riddance to a social deviant who was a serial liar and had a desire to take away constitutional rights given to Canadians by PET. PET saw assholes like Harper coming and protected us with the Charter and Constituion. Thank you PET. So again, good riddance to an absolute ASSHOLE who hated Canada and fleeced the ignorant, religious,right. What a clueless bunch of dumb dumbs.

Jason Kenney, the barren, childless, unmarried, 48 year old virgin, likely sodomite, is your idea of a leader?

You must be on very powerful drugs if you believe that.

The number of CINOs praising the CINO Harpo leaves no doubt that Canada is a cesspool.

Ah, Texas. Glorious and free, the Lone Star state triumphs in every way. Perhaps Canadians will have to become third-world poor to discover the error of their ways.

Mr Harper is the best Prime Minister Canada has ever had. And I sure as Hell Miss Him.
commented 2016-05-27 21:14:30 -0400
Going forward I agree that the cons need to remember what it means to be conservative, they are sliding too close to the cliff.
Jason Kenny is the only one I see, but I would like to see him pull the party away from this left turn, and I’m not sure even he will do it.

He is an honest man. A rarity in politics. He got us through a recession and made us the envy of all the floundering countries. The day he spoke in the Israeli Parliament made me a proud Canadian. That speech was absolutely inspirational. He called a terrorist a terrorist. Took charitable status away from blood suckers, and made smart moves to keep our economy strong and moving. He stood up to Putin and told him to get out of Ukraine. He had respect for our military. He was a gracious and classy Prime Minister and I believe he had Canada’s best interests at heart. It felt like there was a grown up in charge. I miss that feeling of a certain level of security. He was the best PM we have had. There is no other PM in our past who can hold a candle to Harper.

Deiter said, "And it should be made very clear … "

Yes, Deiter, you have been making your opinions of Harper plainly clear. YAWN!


And as I remain the only true conservative here, I should be obeyed if one wishes to be considered a true conservative.

Support for a CINO like Harper, indeed for a flock of CINOs as is the CPC, is folly. How does the CPC stand out from Liberals or the NDP if they are nearly ideologically equal to them? They cannot. So, they remain a fraud.

That wasn’t a loss to dumb dumb, it was an illegal election that was funded by the UN, assisted by the MSM, and all unions, and the left wing parties, that colluded to form a coalition government, even when the people said they didn’t want one.

Your interest in sodomy has been noted. Closeted as you are, you are obviously a CINO.

Harper was a good Leader and Honest to boot, alas his time has gone and we have to look to the future, Oh! I forgot, Trudeau is PM, we do not have a future, wait Trump is about to be elected, perhaps there is a glimmer of hope after all. Trump will walk all over our Prime Idiot, it will look good on him.

Justin, take heed. Donald Trump wares size 14 Boots.

Oh, I think I know why you can’t use your real name.
It’s probably because you’re a MUSLIB squealing rat who sang like a canary about some of your fellow muslib’s involvement in a crime and you are hiding under a rock under witness protection.

Harper could have been as great as Reagan, Churchill and Thatcher if he had of bit of integrity and stood up for what he believed in.

For instance, as President of the National Citizen’s Coalition, Harper correctly stated Canada was not a bilingual country, when as Prime Minister, he abandoned integrity and kissed up to Quebec, put more and more money into official bilingualism and so appeased the French Language Supremacists by appointing and reappointing Graham Fraser as Official Languages Commissioner, who went around harassing businesses in Ottawa, not on govt land for bilingual/French Service, but not in Gatineau Quebec across the river.

Harrassing businesses, that’s “Business Friendly”

And of course while places like Veteran’s Affairs serving the public got their budget cut, places to serve appeasing bigot card playing entitled special interest groups like the OLC did not.

Harper, as great a Brian Mulroney, Joe Clark, Robert Standfield -wimps or sellout politicians

“One of the worst Prime Ministers ever”
Wrong Anonymous , one of the worst was Chretien, the worst was Pierre Trudeau.

A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It’s a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it’s because it’s proven.
- Jean Chretien

Mike Piesse, it won’t take four years to compile a list, give it one year tops and it will be an eye opener. We already have had several scandals and the fun is just starting. Junior is rapidly gaining ground for the award of “The Worst Prime Minister In Canadian History”.

Yes, you and Deiter have been harping on this a lot, but if it was so failed, why was he in office for 10 years (minus 2 months), and when he did lose this last election still took 32% of the vote and 99 seats?

Get a life, Anonymous and Deiter, and grow up as well.

And it should be made very clear …

If the CPC decides to elect a woman as leader, the party is finished and must be abandoned by true conservatives.

It’s bad enough Rona Ambrose, a 50-ish, childless woman of convenient morals, is the leader. But she will be setting the tone of the CPC until the new leadership takes over. And when the new leader does take over, they will be so politically correct, you will not be able to tell them apart from the Liberals.

The fraud continues.

A failure as a conservative speaks volumes about Harpo’s life of convenience.

Of course, he did nothing of consequence that would have even remotely have been called conservative.

He failed to uphold the Right to Life for the preborn.

He failed to defend private property rights.

He failed to enact the Right to Bear Arms.

And…most significantly…he lost an election he should have won.

Beaten by JT? Yes, he was beaten by JT and no one should forget that this was Harpo’s crowning failure.

He’s gone but his fraud of a conservative party remains, filled with CINOs who would rather be with the Liberals.

Here is what I heard on a Conservative Talk Radio Show and it appears they are continuing in the failed path of Harper, Tim Hudak,etc of putting political correctness ahead of integrity in order to get elected.

It is such conservatives that want to get elected/re-elected by appeasing bigots like having a Woman leader

Ask yourself, would you want the Conservatives to appease gender chauvinist bigots who would not want a Woman as leader?

If not, why the hypocrisy and selling out principles of integrity to appease other gender chauvinist bigots who want a Woman as leader?

The same people, including the mainstream media, still insist it is important for a leader to speak French.

Likewise, would you want the Conservatives to appease language chauvinist bigots in BC who want some as a leader who can speak e.g. Punjab

If not, why the hypocrisy and selling out principles of integrity to appease other language chauvinist bigots in Quebec who want a leader who can speak French?

How about instead, attacking the other parties who do appease such bigots, and be the party that does not.

Ie. We conservatives are not run by neither Feminists nor male chauvinists who put outside gender ahead of what is inside the person.

We conservatives will not eliminate the vast majority of the populace for leadership of the party who do not speak French in order to appease a few foolish language bigots who think speaking French comes ahead of everything else, which is no different than appeasing other bigots who put a person’s religion, race, sexual orientation ahead of everything else in being qualified.

That is political incorrectness and guts, which the public wants, not cowardice and foolishness in trying to avoid the bigot card by appeasing bigots

As PMs go he was a good one, not great but good. A good leader is one who you don’t know is there, leaves you alone to prosper. A great PM is one who makes the nation prosper while you think government is not there.
