Why Libertarians Should Love Andrew Scheer

Faith GoldyArchive

Tonight I give you three reasons why libertarians should love Andrew Scheer: his commitment to free speech, his firearms policy, and his plan to enshrine property rights in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Then, Sheila Gunn Reid joins me with news and analysis of a 57 year old migrant woman who was found dead in Minnesota as she was making her way to illegally cross into Canada.

Plus, we've got your weekly top headlines and quote of honour.

Faith, I just wanted to reply to the comment you made on another subject on another blog. You said that the Pope should excommunicate Justin Trudeau regarding his stance on abortion. Nine months pregnant, want to abort, no problem, its a woman’s choice. Gender selection abortion, no problem, its a woman’s right to abort. Want to be a Liberal, you better get with the pro abortion position or get lost. Faith, I am a Christian of another persuasion, but I whole heartedly agree with your point of view. I would like to personally thank you for standing up for the unborn babies. And I would really like to see the Pope excommunicate Trudeau. Trudeau really is not a Christian and should be shown the door. Sure, he will pay the consequences when he meets the Lord. In the meantime, he is forcing the conscience of the Liberal party and being an accessory to murder. In the meantime, thousands of babies are dying.

I know that we must listen to the opinions of others and respect their right to disagree with our view. In many cases, there are gray areas. This is not one of them.

Faith, keep slugging. You and the Rebel gang are my heroes. I would just love to see a debate on this subject between Ben Shapiro and Justin Trudeau. Ben, another pro life hero, a practicing Jew, would shred Justin.

Jimmy Reece do you really think you have more liberty under the left? If you do please explain as all i see is less freedom under them. Harper got rid of a few of their tools for oppression.

So ironic that people who call themselves Liberals hate liberty so much.

Jimmy Reece there is far more than Ezra on this site. And he tells the truth, the left lies like a sidewalk. We can see what is happening in the world and society. The liberal media ignores so much and lies so much , figure that out.

Peter Netterville,

Please explain how you not a sheep when it comes to other side. Ezra speaks it – you eat it up.

Good point, Leviticus. Maybe if they are ignored they will go run off a cliff like the lemmings that they are.

My resolution for the summer is quit entertaining the trolls by responding to them… If time and age have taught me nothing at all contrary to myth busters you just can’t “polish a turd” and the only cure for stupid is the Darwin award.!!

- A lot of people calling themselves Libertarians aren’t Libertarians. It’s like when socialists started calling themselves liberals. The have to keep rebranding themselves because people keep figuring out what they are. Libertarians need to keep this in mind. Scheer isn’t fighting to hold the Liberals to a minority in the next election, he’s fighting for the win. The Liberals will be looking to turn the next election into a single issue referendum (it’s not like they’ll be able to campaign on their failed policies), Scheer needs to make sure that doesn’t happen.

- So Trudeau gets his first border kill. Do you think he’ll believe himself to be the least bit responsible? Nope, he’ll be too busy shopping for socks.

Yes these are excellent reasons to support Scheer, however you do not appear to mention the reasons not to. While his platform remains to be seen, I suspect he is a communist at heart much like Harper. Tax credits for specific groups of people ( such as parents) are a form of wealth redistribution and as such I will oppose their proponents to my last breath. They are also a slap in the face to anyone who values individual liberty and personal responsibility. The policies Scheer campaigned on include Marxist tax credits for certain groups of people. An earlier comment mentioned that it is not nessesary to vote for the Commie if you don’t like him, and I agree, Libertarian party it likely will be. As much as I despise him, I can live with another term of Trudeau, in fact I’ve been preparing for it.

I’m with you on Scheer Faith.

If libertarians aren’t satisfied unless the “Conservative” Party of Canada fulfills all of their libertarian policies, then there is a choice, the Libertarian Party of Canada, the president of which already has offered up his leadership to Bernier.
commented 2017-06-02 09:16:51 -0400
What is hoped is that as PM Scheer and the Conservatuve Party of Canada will sift through the ideas generated by the various leadership candidates and adopt those that are worthwhile pursuing as part if an election campaign. For example, while I didn’t support Saxton for leader, his idea of an apprenticeship program sounded interesting.
commented 2017-06-02 09:12:28 -0400
Peter… That is so true, sometimes the problem with nationalists is we expect our leaders to fit the parameters of everybody’s expectations but I think the big picture here is to provide support so this young man will defeat Trudeau and work hand-in-hand with President Donald J Trump..
If the nationalists are successful in their bed to unseat Trudeau in the next election we can probably still pull some fat from the fire and turn this country around and have one more go at a freedom loving prosperous middle class
whose children will inherit a country with borders and who practices the rule of law.!!

I hope that he rakes junior over the coals every chance he gets. He needs to stand for the freedoms in this country that were bought and paid for by previous generations of good men and women. I can’t seem to get the poem “In Flanders Fields” out of my head!
commented 2017-06-02 09:02:38 -0400
Well whether Andrew Scheer is a real Libertarian or whatever, it matters not.

He is now the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. Get behind him and support him or do not.

We will never have a Conservation party leader that meets everyone’s criteria.

A libertarian that wants the State , the government to rule the price of a supposed free market, to me it is incompatible. someone who wants the consumers to pay the highest price for milk in the world to make sure a minority of workers have a constant artificially high profit, is not a libertarian , sorry.
but Mr. Scheer seemed to be a good man and a good father a good person but no way he is a libertarian.
commented 2017-06-02 00:07:39 -0400
I liked all of Andrew Scheer’s policy positions except his support for the continuation of supply management in the dairy industry. I hope Bernier still gets his way on this one. With 49% of the vote he deserves a major concession.

I’m libertarian and I didn’t vote for Sheer because his policies seemed either a mushy compromise or unworkable – but we will see. If he delivers I’ll be a happy party supporter.

Great report Faith.
I look forward to Andrew Scheer’s leadership.

The woman who died trying to enter Canada illegally is very controversial, there is no plan to keep this from happening. I agree with Faith when she said," his wreckless tweets"! Trudeau has blood on his hands!

Ramadan is a bloody consequence of Mohammad’s prescription for a worldwide caliphate.
