Five ways to “Make Canada Great Again” — with guest Ezra Levant

Faith GoldyRebel Host
 

Tonight, inspired by Donald Trump's #MAGA vision, I make five bold policy proposals to Make Canada Great Again after PM Justin Trudeau is out of office:

1) Make the Loonie a hard currency.
2) Build up our military.
3) Encourage private medical care.
4) Abolish the gun registry.
5) Place common-sense limits on abortion.

Then, Rebel Commander Ezra Levant joins me in studio to make the case that Canada will always be great, and break down the state of conservatism in our country.

PLUS: We've got your weekly Quote of Honour!

Abortion is one area that gets me when it comes to progressives, Sharia does not allow it, yet they think they can have both.

You really are a nutbar. Obsessed with Islam. Nut

I sincerely hope you people are smart enough to recognize that Faith is playing the character of a right wing caricature. So if you are going to compliment her, do it for her acting skills, and not for her stated ideological beliefs.

Faith is really quite boring. she has the same ability as Dizzy Levant—that is to attract the nutbars in society. The fringe element—the whackos.

The points 1 and 2 are rational, but the 3, and 5 represent stupid, an out of date form of conservatism.

RE 3, the medicare is a working combination of the private and plublic sectors, very similar as in GB and other European countries. “Private” medicare exists in the US and it results in higher costs. The source of deficiencies in the Canadian provincial medicare system is the highest per capita rate of immigration which burdens our medicare with quarter million (!!!!!!!) medicare receipients YEARLY, hardly any of the immigrants contributing to tax revenues for many years after arrival.

RE:4 Gun registry is for many an ideological issue with no practical conequences. The only valid point with which I agree is that it did costs too much while it was promised to be be revenue neutral – a typical arrogant government waste.

RE:5 i) Please leave women in control of their own bodies; ii) “placing common sense limits” is clearly a form of big brother government intervention into lifes of its citizens; iii) it’s truly arrogant to thing that the government intervention has even a chance to compete with the appropriateness of the instincts of a pregnand mom. iv) vast data shows that not “placing (the) limits” does not result in an increase in abortion; v) keep your religious hands off the rational decision process; (there is more…).

Isn’t it interesting that, as an adult, I am required to pay for my eye examinations, as well as any dental work I require. However, if an unwelcome pregnancy occurs (even though excellent prophylactics have been available for five decades at a extremely low cost), the cost of said abortion is immediately cast upon the hapless Canadian taxpayers. Oh, even if there are multiple abortions demanded by the same pregnant woman…all free of charge to the idiot female.
Seems to me that there is something wrong with this equation.

Stephenson, it is unfortunate that in protecting our freedoms, culture and way of life we will inadvertently be protecting yours and Anons. There are always leeches in this world who get a free ride and then look the gift horse in the mouth and complain and point fingers. Wish we could just hang you out to dry like you deserve.

I wonder if your wife would say the same thing, Raj.
commented 2016-07-31 19:17:05 -0400
My wife had 0ne miscarriage and maybe 2. The fact is it meant less to me than missing a party or a fine restaurant meal. Did I go into deep mourning , weep and moan and gnash my teeth . NO. I sat down and supper . It was no big deal . Same with an abortion if done on time.

Kanada will never be great again – assuming it was ever great.
Alberta can be great…..as a separate country. As long as we stay in Confederation, we will be held back, held down and smothered.

I’d add ban islam to the list.

The violent, subjugating, misogynistic, intolerant, bigoted, hateful, dictatorial, fascist, totalitarian, political ideology founded by a warmongering pedophile has no place in the civilized World. "

Fascinating that the solution to something you perceive as intolerant and subjugating, is to be intolerant and attempt to subjugate it.

Faith, I would suggest to make Canada great again or at least slow down its descent into a state dominated society, what is required falls into the provincial domain, namely, parental control for the education of their children. Otherwise, one is left with the state using the educational institution for social engineering, whereby, the people will elect the likes of Justin Trudeau, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And you end up with the “useful idiots” who troll and comment on The Rebel.

Ethan Maccullouch – you are a Libtard asshat! Faith is an exemplary specimen of a real fine Lady! A Lady who knows what she believes in – unlike you – who falls for Clintoon like bullshit!
commented 2016-07-30 03:30:45 -0400
Anon it is not a right. And how about some reasonable limitations and not having others pay for it.
commented 2016-07-30 03:30:06 -0400
Kelly Weber yes they can until the day of birth idiot. That is how it is.
commented 2016-07-30 02:02:06 -0400
We should de-militarize as much as possible. This would save money and lives. And if we need some military support, we can pay the Americans.

And I fully support the right to have an abortion.

I really would enjoy a return to the opening of the show where Ms. Goldy is target shooting. It makes it seem that Rebel decided to become politically correct when it was edited out. For me as a mid-60’s male related to many empowered women, this was a symbol of ladies empowerment.

Otherwise, great work.
commented 2016-07-29 18:13:45 -0400
I agree that’s a generalization, but I’m not about to run out and count them up. I don’t have the time or the money. But my insensitive sarcasm was a knee-jerk response to the perceived callousness and insensitivity of your reaction to Faith’s 5th point. I apologize for the sarcasm. But the issue isn’t going away. And I’m not going to stop proclaiming that killing babies is wrong, including in the womb.
commented 2016-07-29 17:48:05 -0400
Gee moe that is a wee bit different than your first response. Yammer away bud just bear in mind that your comment about a lot of canadians sound a lot like similar comments made on the left. Let me counter it with 1 of my own. A lot of canadians would like a lot of other canadians to quit claiming they know what we care about.
commented 2016-07-29 17:13:45 -0400
Ken, a lot of Canadians believe in the sanctity of human life. That is, respect the dignity of each human being and their right to exist, from the moment of conception to natural death. You may not agree, and that’s fine… that’s your right. But in a free society, civil debate MUST be unrestricted in the marketplace of ideas. I must be free to try to convince you of the moral, ethical or factual (scientific) superiority of my position, just as you must be free to try to convince me of the superiority of yours. So, no, we will not stop “yammering” about it.

Hey Maurice let me open carry and I will take care of my own head. Oh wait my government isn’t protecting me anyway and you sure aren’t…

commented 2016-07-29 15:12:27 -0400
A woman has the right to choose. That right comes BEFORE conception. After that, there is another human being that she carries, and it is her responsibility to nurture it and care for it. Once it leaves the womb she may continue to care for it and nurture it, or pass it on to a compassionate and life loving human being that will do so.
Pro-Choice AND Pro-Life.

Do you idiots actually think you can go to a Doctor at 8 months pregnant and say you changed your mind and get an abortion?
commented 2016-07-29 11:44:20 -0400
correction, should read, ‘Faith I agree with both you and Ezra.’
commented 2016-07-29 11:42:35 -0400
Rude ,uncalled for and nasty. You’ve just shown your true colours Ethen Maccullouch. If a women is too stupid, lazy, or plain ignorant to not tend to an unwanted pregnancy immediately, then she deserves to go through with the pregnancy and adopt out. It hasn’t been settled because people still want some limits. There are none. It is not too much to expect. Faith didn’t even say no abortion. She said ‘common sense limits’. Your dismissive ridicule, and down right insulting comments are meant to shut up those who don’t agree with you, you are as bad as a Marxist.

Kory James, I’d agree with that, accommodating Islam in our country is a big mistake.

I agree with both you and Ezra that Conservatives have gone soft and scared in this country. If they think liberal lite is going to cut it they are in for a big surprise. I hope they can find their grit before the next election.

Abortion? Haven’t we moved on from this twenty years ago? Freedom to choose what one considers the best course of action. Move on…nothing to see here.

Maurice Potvin,
Well played!
commented 2016-07-29 09:01:10 -0400
Thanks for that Faith, Ezra. Good show.
On abortion, make it user pay.
I think out Lefty oriented education system needs a
revamp to make Canada great again.
