Fildebrandt’s “United Liberty”: Keeping Alberta’s conservatives on the right path

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt was in his riding of Strathmore-Brooks to make an announcement on conservative unity last night. 

The finance critic for the official opposition has formed an organization called United Liberty that will promote the principles of freedom and liberty within the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose parties and potentially, a united conservative party.

This organization will promote “yes” to unity votes from both the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose party memberships and will also help promote candidates that reflect the principles of freedom and liberty.

Watch as I provide some highlights from Fildebrandt’s announcement.

The formation of United Liberty comes in the wake of Maxime Bernier’s loss in the CPC leadership race. Bernier was the most freedom oriented candidate in the race and gained a lot of support from Albertans.

This new organization aims to serve those liberty-minded individuals and harness them as a movement that can keep political parties and politicians in check ensuring they don’t stray to the left — something that seems to be a problem with conservative parties today.

I’m sick of these “Freedom and Fiscal” Conservatives constantly hijacking the right’s movements. What’s so hard to understand that “progressive values” are geared toward making people rootless, monetarily irresponsible, hedonist shades scouring the landscape for purpose, something Liberals and government will gladly give them.

It sounds like DF is the “right” candidate. Jean is the “centre-right” and Kenney the “centre/centre-left. While I hope DF runs and wins, he’ll have a difficult time with Trudeau (far-left) or Scheer (centre-left).

The finance critic for the official opposition has formed an organization called United Liberty that will promote the principles of *libertarianism*within the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose parties and potentially, a united conservative party.

Sounds more like an organization to help Fildebrandt be ready for the leadership campaign should the parties unite, “our values” are Fildebrandt’s libertarian values.

Get the damn vote over with re-congregate right of center parties and then quietly purge the reds – a wise leader will let the membership do this – Notley will lose by default – get rid of the reds in the party before you take power so they don’t undermine efforts to roll back the globalist gains made by that anti-Alberta, anti-Canadain rat Notley.

If the vote on July 22 is no, what does that imply for the current leadership of both parties? They have invested all their political goodwill into unity, and, like Cameron with Brexit, would likely have to resign, opening both parties to instability only 2 years from an election.

However at the provincial level I fully support Derric Fildeabrant and hope that he runs for the leadership of the party as he and Brad wall will make remarkable progress to write the wrongs done to Western Canada.
And keep in mind folks… He never threw us under the bus when we all chanted “lock her up”

Bernier was not the most liberty oriented of the runners for leadership… Brad Trost was by a longshot.!!!

If Notley gets another mandate in 2019 (or 2020) then Alberta will have taken the metaphorical gun and shot itself in the head. There will be no return from Alberta if that happens.
