My circle of friends and I are seniors who supported the Alberta Conservative Party under Peter Lougheed and Don Getty, but stopped when Ralph Klein came along. Like so many other true Conservatives we supported the NDP knowing we had to put a stop to the mess we were being forced into, concerned for our children’s and grandchildren’s future.
What disturbs us the most is watching fellow seniors going around bragging about what great conservatives they are, yet will support anyone who attaches the word conservative to their name, believing every lie they feed them, totally ignorant of the history behind the person’s background.
If it wasn’t bad enough that they supported Klein, who always bragged about being a Liberal as history books prove, and watched him destroy everything Lougheed created for us, now they have thrown their support behind Jason Kenney, who like Klein is another former Liberal. Kenney was Justin Trudeau’s righthand man Ralph Goodale’s assistant in the Liberal Party in Regina. He came to Alberta to join the Preston Manning and Stephen Harper Reform Party movement and, as any true conservative knows, there is a huge difference. Kenney has never been a true conservative.
So while Kenney promises to make our lives a living hell with a more privatization, while he continues to give away our oil royalties and tax breaks to his rich friends, he helps them make fools of themselves, teaching them to bash the NDP, insulting the intelligence of true conservatives who elected them, they whine and complain about the horrors of the Carbon Tax that’s been in place in Sweden since 1991, in B.C. since 2008, and in several other countries and has proven that it works and is supported by the oil industry.
To prove how ignorant these people are believing the Carbon Tax is going to financially destroy them my latest gas bill proves them dead wrong. The Carbon Tax amounted to $10.08 while the other fees that their Liberal hero Klein forced upon us with his deregulation was $66.20, plus my wife recently had $112 put in her account for a Carbon Tax rebate, so how is that going to destroy us?
Maybe these ignorant seniors should keep their sarcastic comments to themselves. We have no intention of helping them elect another one of their Liberal friends; we know what their Liberal hero Klein did to us. It’s why we are broke and Alaska and Norway aren’t.
