Popularity polls aside, Conservatives continue to out-fundraise Liberals by wide margin

Justin Trudeau and the Liberals won the election and continue to ride high in popularity polls but there is some good news for the Conservatives.

But, there is some good news for Conservatives.

To win the next election, you need to be organized and well-funded and according to recent party filings, the Conservatives continue to out-fundraise the Liberals by $7M even after losing the last election.

I break down the numbers for you which are encouraging for the Conservatives.

Regardless of the popularity polls, clearly conservative-minded individuals see something they don’t like which is causing them to keep funding and supporting a movement and a party that is going to take on Justin Trudeau and the Liberals in 2019.

What wealthy special interests Andrew? You mean the auto industry and aerospace which received massive handouts from the Liberals. Wake up. The Liberal Party is the party of rich self interests.

The Two Dummies, Dion and Trudeau, are going to spend millions to send Canadian soldiers to Black Equatorial Africa as peace keepers to prevent Muslims from killing Muslims, while at the same time underfunding the military for training and equipment for the defense of Canada.

Africa being the most resource rich continent on the planet with 47 countries would rather have Canada do it’s peace keeping than pay for it themselves. Of course the Two Dummies, to enhance their personal prestige at the UN rush forward with a plan to send Canadian boys and girls and have them subjected to Ebola, Malaria, HIV and Islamic terrorist’s bombs.

Is it any wonder why it is difficult to recruit young Canadian to defend their country when the Two Dummies are so eager to use them to enhance their personnel prestige. One thing you will never see is Dion or Trudeau ever exposing their families to such idiocy. That ’s for suckers.

PEter Netterville: pay attention to the writing styles. It’s basically impossible for one person to maintain multiple independent styles. Apply Occam’s razor, and think about a more reasonable conclusion: that there is more than one person with left wing beliefs on the internet.

Don’t forget that your tax payer dollars were used by the CBC to campaign for Dumb Dumb and against Harper. "

NDP sucks: Calls Prime Minister “dumb dumb”. Wonders why nobody wants to play with him.

In all seriousness, think about that for a second. The most recent election was as much a rejection of the politics of negativity as anything else, yet you still stick to that failed model.

Don’t forget that your tax payer dollars were used by the CBC to campaign for Dumb Dumb and against Harper. Don’t forget that Soros funded the LeadNow organization in Canada which campaigned for Dumb Dumb. Don’t forget that the so called unbiased journalist union of 6,000 members supported Dumb Dumb in the campaign.

So in fact the Liberals had a huge amount of dirty money being used to support the low or no moral standard Librano Party of Canadastan. I’m sure the idiot prime minister is very proud of how this dirty money was spent to support his childish and dangerous agenda.

With everything Lieberal, it is all bought and paid for and manufactured with other peoples money, usually the tax payer. That is what really gets idiots like Dumb Dumb all warm and moist and fuzzy.

I do not usually like the made-up words on here, but I guess the term “Cuckservative” has a purpose, defining those who call themselves Conservatives for their own purposes.

Donors to the Conservative Party of Canada continue to be a diverse group who are willing to fork out big bucks. Yes, the Liberal Party had more donors who gave smaller amounts, but for that party what mattered more was winning the most seats in the general election.

Marty said, “KELLY WEBER, MICHAEL MANN and ANDREW STEPHENSON all on one post – amazing. The only one missing is Jay Kelly. Must have all been at a CBC party and then took turns spewing on the Rebel.”

I suspect they are all the same person … or they are all have the same low IQ. Of course, in order to be socialists like those idiots, you would have to have a real low IQ.

Here I am! According to the CBC story: “First-quarter data released by Elections Canada show the federal Conservatives raked in almost $5.5 million through the first three months of 2016, more than the Liberals and New Democrats combined. … The governing Liberals collected just over $4 million — but may take some comfort in beating the Conservatives in the absolute numbers of donors who chipped in.”

These party donations end up costing the Federal Treasury millions a year through tax breaks, butu they are still an indication of support for the federal parties.

But they are not the only indication of support! Leading up to the last election the Liberals were solidly in third place in terms of fund-raising but they still one the popular vote and the election.

Democracy is about more than money.

Andrew lies saying, "Real Canadians see right through the agenda put out by the wealthy special interests supporting the Cons. "

It isn’t the “wealthy special interests” that are funding the Conservatives, it is the grass roots people. Anyway, there is a limit on the amount that can be donated.

I am fairly certain you know that, Andrew, so it would not matter if they are “wealthy special interest groups” or not.

So the pontifical Andrew says “real” Canadians see right through a purported agenda. Lots of wealthy special interests support the Liberals, or are we just supposed to ignore that if we want to be a “Real” Canadian. Are you a real "cuck"sucker, Andy?

Liberals will win the next election as well, so your entire point is moot.

Probably so with the amount of CUCKs in Canada, including yourself. What gender are you again??? "

Isn’t the definition of “Cuck” (used in this context as a shorthand of “cuckservative”, as someone that pretends to be conservative but isn’t?

Michael Mann is not in that category. Nor are most Canadians, who are open about their leftism.

Being so demoralized as I am after beyond all understanding, the Shiny Pony was chosen, I have no heart left to fund a conservative party; so I am surprised by these results.

My contention though is the Liberal Party is the party of the very upper class (those that survive on hand outs) and the non-working poor. The CPC mostly is really the party of the middle class – it’s just that enough don’t realize it.

Liberal voters are a cheap bunch of bastards. They would rather get illegal funding from Soros and his buddies Steyer, Bloomberg and those other billionaire freaks from the US.

Maybe that will be part of Baby Doc’s electoral reform, that the electorate is only allowed to donate to the Liberal Party of Corruption.

From Malcolm’s earlier interview, I wonder if John Baird is considering a run for the leadership? I think he would be Baby Doc’s and Baby Doc’s Butt’s nightmare.

Some good news !!

But the Liberals fund raise by making promises they can’t keep to so called middle class and the taker class
