How Progressive Are Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives?

Patrick Brown, just another member of the Vote Whoring Class.

  • moraywatson

    Pandering to muslims by attending supremacist ramadan events that benefit totalitarian causes. Patrick Brown is a treasonous sell out.

    • Another in a long line.

    • FivePointSpurgeon

      Jason Kenney unavailable to comment.

  • Waffle

    Nothing, absolutely nothing about this little rat-faced shmuck surprises me.

    • You just knew he was wrong from day 1.

      • Waffle

        He never passed the smell test.

  • mauser 98

    i don’t think Brown is evil .. naive , very uninformed and must have a dull staff
    he lost me on the global warming tax

  • Not at all which is why I will not vote for them.

    • Clausewitz

      I declared free agency the day after this prick was declared the new leader.

      • He promised to fight the sex ed program in Ontario.

        We all know how that went.

        What a liar.

    Every election I usually support two or three “real conservatives” provincially and federally with small campaign contributions to their riding associations. The days of supporting the two faced bullshitting vote whores who infest the top rungs of politics with a vote at the polls are long past in my case.

    All of them – and I mean ALL of them – seem to care only about getting their greedy little hands on the reins of power, and they’ll say and do anything to accomplish this: deceive, break promises, contort themselves like a circus performer. Patrick Brown is hardly distinguishable from someone like Hillary Clinton – he’s just not as talented at the “game” as she is. Sigh ….

    Anyway, it is rather evident that casting our once-every-4-years vote just isn’t getting the job done anymore (if it ever did). Though I’m still a supporter of democracy in general, our current version of it in Ontario, and Canada as a whole, seems to be critically flawed. And I don’t think that a even a major tuneup will be sufficient to remedy the situation: we need an entirely new vehicle.

    • All the same at their core. It’s politics as a lifestyle choice.

    • FivePointSpurgeon

      What has democracy done for you lately? It is and has always been mob rule.

      • PaulW

        If one accepts the baseline equality of all people; that is, their fundamental equality arising from their common humanity, then how can one justify excluding certain individuals or groups from direct input into the society in which they reside?

        I recognize that not everyone thinks that human beings by the very fact of their humanity, warrant certain minimum rights or considerations. (“Some animals are more equal than others”, is implicitly or explicitly the belief of many, I suspect.) But if one does accept a general equality of rights among people, then I do not personally know what system of governance would be any better at affording people – at least in theory – a say in the running of their society, than democracy. I’m open to suggestions, though.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Unless conflicting cultural standards on the part of one segment of the population makes that population segment a threat to all others. These “more equal animals” have essentially declared themselves as such, and need to be culled for the population overall to develop along harmonious lines.

          Please explain how you pull off being so precious 24/7.

          • PaulW

            Then essentially you’re dividing up society into sub-societies (which is legitimate). But the question then is whether any member’s primary allegiance is to a sub-society, such as a racial or political group (or at it’s most basic level, the individual) or to a more over-arching group, or even to humanity as a whole? I am suggesting that we agree to grant each person certain base level rights/privileges based solely on the simple fact of being a member of our species.

            These rights may subsequently be superseded by other considerations – such as the majority of one’s fellows deciding that they wish to take one’s property by force. Or by a majority vote which decides that a certain person or group is to culled from the population for the benefit of those who remain.

          • Minicapt

            You keep using words such as democracy, equality, humanity, etc. Unfortunately, none of those words, and their underlying concepts, are to be found in Shariah, and thus are not aspects of Mohammedanism.
            You should, perhaps, review your thoughts on the subject and try again with a modicum of actual insight.


        • FivePointSpurgeon

          Monarchy. There’s only one person to blame and s/he is a mortal human being, if you catch my drift.

        • FivePointSpurgeon

          Or severe restrictions on who can vote. Military service, landowners, men.

      • Clausewitz

        Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch.

        • Alain

          Well, that is what it has become with the ridiculous idea of everyone have an equal vote, even if you do not work, do not pay taxes and totally depend on government for your livelihood.

  • Clink9

    I just sent an email about this to my MPP, a member of the Pseudo Conservative Party.

    I’m sure it’s just urinating in the wind but I have to let these douche-bags know we’re on to them.

  • Tom Forsythe

    I would be in favour of electoral reform, if it meant we could elect actual conservatives instead of settling for PC’s. It is more likely that it will guarantee Liberal majorities in perpetuity.

  • Mike Williams

    I live in a riding that voted Conservative provincially and federally and have always voted Conservative. As it stands now I have no intention of wasting my time going to vote for this dopes party — I believe in principles and Brown and I don’t seem to share any.

  • Chris

    For the first time in 30 years, since I became eligible, I will not be voting in the next provincial election because all of the parties are exactly the same. None of them are looking for ways to return Ontario to its rightful position ( being the most populated province ) as the economic engine of the country, all they are doing is trying to come up with new and innovative ways to fleece the population to pay for not only their own cronies but the ones that are entrenched in the system by the other parties as well.
    Tim Hudak was crucified by not only the media but his own party for saying that he would cut 100 000 civil servant jobs when even that is just a drop in the bucket compared to what has to be done to just start fixing the political mess we are in. Anyone who has the stones to actually say what must be done wouldn’t survive the nomination process let alone an election.
    So unless their is a true province wide movement to fix the craphole that the LIV’s have created, I really don’t see much point in voting.

  • WalterBannon

    I might have to vote strategically, for the NDP.

    They are the least left wing of the three parties.

    • Alain

      LOL but you do have a point.
