NDP on the verge of a MAJORITY in Alberta

Rebel Staff
 

Hell may be freezing over.

Multiple polls show the NDP's rise in Alberta puts them on the verge of a majority and at least a minority of they hold.



The worst part? The NDP is made up of children who may not be old enough to drink.

MORE: Alberta NDP "fetus" candidate Michael Connolly doesn't like Ezra's jokes about his age -- so here come some more!

Will Albertans stay with the devil they know in the PCs?

Ezra Levant says he'd vote for the NDP if they were the only alternative in town, but luckily there's a third option: Wildrose.

The Alberta PC’s have been in power waaaaaaay too long. “Anybody but those PC guys” would be my vote. Myself, having endured the pain and hardship of an NDP government, while living in Ontario, me voting for the NDP, it’s not going to happen!

I’m impressed with Brian Jean so far and would like to see him as premier over Rachel Notley and Jim Prentice. The Wildrose platform is middle of the road, I reject the newspaper fear-mongering about Wildrose policies and party and hope many of my fellow Albertans also do the same.

Just like the upcoming federal election, it will be a choice between voting for the NDP, or another voting for another term of proven economic incompetence and flagrant corruption on the part of the PCs.
commented 2015-05-02 02:23:02 -0400
Any Albertan who votes PC or NDP is voting for economic suicide for Alberta. Wild Rose is the only viable option for a prosperous Alberta.

When it all comes down to principal, there really isn’t a wise choice with the options presented. The candidates are all promising fields of gold and a change for the future, which when you really think of it, that isn’t hard to achieve, be it for better or worse it would be a change.. We’ve been running (or sputtering if you will) on a misfiring machine primarily jinxed by former Premier Redford and her arrogant and blatant disrespect for the citizens that elected her. That being said, the people of Alberta loathed her for her actions more so then who they dislike now in the same party. The current bunch of PC MLA’s are paying the price of discontent within their party for the floor crossing done earlier this year from the Wildrose, a party that had some promise prior to the defection, which all but fizzled out the window with all but a handful of MLA"s in that party left. Daniel Smith is probably disliked equally as much as Redford was by those Wildrose electorates who favored the change to the Wildrose ideas.
Unfortunately for Mr. Jean, his comments earlier this week stating he was willing to “work” with the NDP was a reaction to the boost of support that party seems to be achieving in the recent polls. For stating that, and then later stating we couldn’t “trust” the NDP furthers my suspicions that I can’t trust him either. Having lived in Saskatchewan during a portion of the NDP rein in that province I can say that is definitely a party I couldn’t trust nor would I vote for. NDP supports Government control of everything, with private sector taking a back seat or none at all.
That leaves us with David Swan and his Liberal party, what makes me wonder is this a leader without a party or a party without a leader? His chances of achieving the ultimate goal of Premiership is a pipe dream at best so for that matter the Liberal party is more or less a spoiler in a game of chance.
I always think back to a time when I was once told that anytime a Government implements or raises a tax, it’s punishment to us for their mishandling of our money.
Although I am probably just as upset as the average citizen within this province at the current state of affairs within the Government, I just don’t feel it wise to elect a party, first off with absolutely no experience running a Government and secondly with no idea how much it costs to run a province. It’s pretty easy to blacklist someone in the race to make yourself look better, something “all” the party leaders seem to be doing.
Also, I’d like to state, that the current price of oil and the “expected” earnings that were hoped for is not a localized provincial issue but rather a world situation. The Arabs could virtually give their oil away for an extended period of time and totally dismantle all the production worldwide then later take control and demand prices much higher then we can imagine. Just remember, our valuable resources are not going away and they will be there when the prices rebound. But also too, think of it like this…I feel the reason gasoline was selling for under 70 cents a litre just a few months ago , wasn’t because of a lack of demand or supply, but rather because that’s all its worth in the first place. The oil giants have been ripping off the public for years and all forms of Government have supported it worldwide.

I’m in the “anybody but PC” camp as well. And because of that I need to decide who is more likely to win – Wildrose or NDP. That is where my strategic vote will go.
commented 2015-05-01 17:08:32 -0400
Just goes to show that Albertans are no more conservative than the rest of canada.
commented 2015-05-01 16:31:24 -0400
Saskatchewan is currently running quite smoothly. Do you think there’s enough $$$ left in the Heritage Fund that we could rent Brad Wall for a term. A new revenue stream for Saskatchewan, they might go for that. I’m otherwise abstaining as I dont really know how to choose.
commented 2015-05-01 14:05:08 -0400
As a Canadian who cannot stand those who commit atrocities against vulnerable people, I could never vote for the Notley NDP. When they and she, along with her AUPE union buddies that she is literally in bed with, assaulted and harassed disabled residents for over 200 days at the Artspace co-op housing project, they showed us what kind of abominable monsters they are. They sent some residents to hospital. If those criminals ever have to account on this earth, may it be very dear.

Karen,
From bigger picture point of view, you vote for B. Jean when you vote for any Wildrose candidate. Voting for Christian NDP against Muslim Wildrose candidate is voting for “multicultural” / anti-business NDP Government.
commented 2015-05-01 09:29:23 -0400
KAREN MORSE, I can sympathize with you saying, “I am not electing my values. I am electing a person”. I was reflecting on that this morning thinking that little attention is given to the character, critical thinking and legislative strength of the person being elected. For example, other posts by the rebel.media commented on the NDP putting forward young, inexperienced candidates. That also came to mind when looking back at the situation of Conservative MPP Rick Nicholls being mocked by the Ontario Liberals for daring to question evolutionism. As part of their juvenile stunt, they brandished a copy of a recent issue of The National Geographic which also identified anybody who questioned global warming as an established “fact” of science as being anti-science!

Even the CBC’s Rick Mercer, a comedian posing as a ‘scientist’, got into the act:
http://www.cbc.ca/player/Shows/Shows/The+Rick+Mercer+Report/ID/2657083752/
Seeing the image of the pack of the Liberals in the Ontario legislature guffawing at Nicholl’s expense, I couldn’t help thinking that we are getting our highest levels of government populated by ‘useful idiots’, who would have trouble being elected as a small town or village councilor or dog catcher.

Fecal Point – “Wow, when nutjobs state they hate to agree with me, …”

Someone with feces as the root meaning calls those who post using their real name “nutjobs”. Now that is funny!

Ask anyone in Manitoba what the NDP has done for the Province. Even the hard core brain dead’s that voted for them are disillusioned and shocked at how much money they are stealing from us and giving us little in return. The electorate is waiting on false promises and bracing for the next round of taxes to hit us in the pocket book. Selenger is single handedly making Wynne look fiscally responsible, if that’s possible.
commented 2015-05-01 01:48:22 -0400
Hi Alex,

I am not electing my values. I am electing a person. It will be a rainy day in hell when I vote for a Muslim. If you value multiculturism over the lives of your people and the future of your children especially the girls, I can’t help you. No one in this country has any balls to stand up against this incredible evil which is infiltrating our governments, our schools, our military and our media. Allah is the problem.
commented 2015-05-01 00:01:58 -0400
Karen,
I understand your feelings. Your vote for WildRose Party is vote for your values that WildRose represents. Not voting or voting for NDP would be the act to help who against your core beliefs.
commented 2015-04-30 23:57:28 -0400
PET was not bad? Good grief he was a racist who fondled hard core terrorists and I don’t mean Fidel Castro. Muslims might curse Christians when they pray but I have heard born in Canada people from all the parties curse Jesus in every sentence. Canada is in a mess politically. But politics just reflects how a nation is doing. Albertans will get the government they deserve as will Canadians later in the year.
commented 2015-04-30 23:42:34 -0400
Well, so much for Fecal’s professionalism and logic, when he reverts to profanity to start labeling his “opponents”… Please don’t tell me you’re reverting to type, Fecal — you’d only stereotype yourself.
commented 2015-04-30 23:01:15 -0400
I was going to vote for the Wildrose and financially contributed to the party but the candidate they gave to my riding is a Muslim who immigrated to Canada from India only nine years ago. The only candidate in our riding that is a born Canadian is Christina Gray, the NDP candidate. Both our PC and Wildrose candidates are Muslim immigrants. So hopefully they will split the Muslim vote. I am a Torah Observant Christian and a hard core Pro-Israelli Zionist. I have studied Islam for about six years and have followed its destruction all over the world for the same time period. There is a holocaust of Christians happening in the Middle East at the hand of Muslims whether you are talking about Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, Afganistan, Turkey, Sudan, Nigeria etc. There are very few people in Alberta who care about this but I care. Did you know whenever Muslims say their prayers that they curse the Christians and Jews? Then Ezra is supposed to pay some Muslim 80,000 dollars for calling him an anti-semite. It is a given. We are running out of time to save this country from becoming another UK, Sweden or France. The Liberals hate the Christians ( I used to be a Liberal) so I have no choice but to vote NDP or not vote at all. I like Rachel Notley and I really liked her father Grant Notley. But Pierre Elliott Trudeau wasn’t bad but his son is a disaster. Pat Condell, from the UK, would call the Wildrose vote hoaring pimps. They have been bought by the Muslims and I wonder where that money has come from. My favorite saying lately is “IT IS NOT THE ECOMOMY STUPID”. We need to stand with our God so that he will stand with us. I’m praying. Are you?
commented 2015-04-30 22:49:33 -0400
Wow, when nutjobs state they hate to agree with me, I must be onto something. At least I do my homework, unlike some of you hate ranters out there.
commented 2015-04-30 22:43:20 -0400
I wouldn’t rely on the Polls! They got it wrong last time! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed and a lot of praying that Wild Rose will win this time. Anything else will be a disaster! NDP is a train wreck waiting to happen…they have only proven to screw things up more than the outgoing party! Saw it in B.C. myself…..
One thing the Wild Rose should be pushing this time around…. “What has happened to all the monies in our Heritage fund?” We need to see the books! There should be Billions in that Account! Too many Premiers have stolen it from Albertans and should be made accountable for it! Only one gave back to Albertans and didn’t steal from us and that was Ralph…..

Pollsters – I keep hanging up on them. Maybe only Dumb Bunnies talk to them. Maybe that is why NDP is leading?
commented 2015-04-30 21:00:12 -0400
If hell does freeze over, and the NDP wins, I am out of here. I saw them destroy BC and Saskatchewan. Housing prices will drop, the oil industry will become a grave yard, and all taxes will go up to pay for their union cronies. Every vote counts this election. Make sure you get out and VOTE…!
commented 2015-04-30 20:53:12 -0400
Leela Aheer is young and inexperienced but sure makes a lot of sense.
commented 2015-04-30 20:46:43 -0400
Seeing the latest polls makes me believe that the pollsters are really F****d up. They must have got all their results from Edmonton and Calgary. If they ventured outside of those cities I’m convinced the results would be drastically different.
commented 2015-04-30 20:40:35 -0400
Goodbye Alberta, we shall all miss you. Vote Right if you want to survive. For Gods sake, wake up.
commented 2015-04-30 20:37:18 -0400
I will vote Wildrose. They are the only hope for a real Alberta. If the eastern migrated population in Alberta sways the vote for the NDP, they will be headed home and they will lose whatever they worked for in Alberta.
commented 2015-04-30 20:27:21 -0400
I guess Albertans if they elect the NDP on May 5th want to become a HAVE NOT province like Ontario. I guess the best province in Canada economically is to much for most albertans, lets join the rest of the tax and spend provinces.
commented 2015-04-30 20:01:56 -0400
The polls showed the NDP having a huge lead over the liberals in BC during the last election.
commented 2015-04-30 19:51:04 -0400
You’re actually BELIEVING these polls, Ezra? Since when are these polls even accurate? I keep getting an automated polling company phoning me, and I’m just feeding them a pack of lies…

Much as I hate to agree with Fecal, he’s correct in his assessment of the likely seat “winning” the NDP might get. We’re just hearing “panic” with the Rebel leader, because the NDP is becoming a protest vote here, much like Quebec. The only reason NDP is becoming a viable option at all is that Alberta has never had an NDP government. (And if they vote for one, they never will again!) Albertans have zero clue about the high taxes, increased bureaucracy, environmental “protection” (read: job losses) of an NDP government would implement. Add to this the media’s fearmongering over the Wildrose, and the NDP starts looking good. But any “immigrant” (such as myself) to Alberta who has lived under an NDP government will not willingly do so again.

Yes, though again I hate to disagree with Fecal, I concur that we’ll likely end up with a minority government, though I disagree that the minority leader will be the Conservatives…

Oh, and Ron Zager, you wrote, “The NDP can’t foul it up any worse than Prentice and those who came before him.” Wrong. They can.
commented 2015-04-30 19:43:41 -0400
If the NDP get a majority here in Alberta, then we are hooped.

The NDP are anti-oil, anti-pipeline, anti-big business, and pro-Union (which ironically is a big business). Al these things are bad, really bad for Alberta’s economy.
