The Conservatives Told Lies - to Themselves...

There are still many people in denial. Today, in Facebook, a friend of mine wrote that:

The Liberals won this election not by proving to Canadians that they could do a better job but by convincing low information voters that Stephen Harper is the devil incarnate.
And, here is my reply:
If you really believe what you have written, then the Conservatives are in a pile of trouble. The Conservatives ran a horrible campaign with no ideas, let alone the fact that they squandered a majority government doing....what, well, nothing at all. No big plans, no big thinking, no philosophy, no nothing...the harper Conservatives were timid conservatives...and they were nasty. Their spokespeople were completely vapid - Paul Calandra made Pierre Poilievre seem Churchillian...and Poilievre was pretty bad. The Harper conservatives deserved to lose, and if there is not some major introspection, then we can look forward to opposition for many years.
The Conservatives were the ones telling lies. We were fooling ourselves by saying we were the principled party - when in fact, we were just nasty and vindictive. We were the ones who enaged in negative advertising and we changed the rules to allow for more spending...just because we had more money. Who was fooling who? We fooled ourselves.

Please go out and buy my book. I write about a lot of this and I have a way forward for Canada. Plus, I also go after the left.

Every month my kids get 160 nothings by direct deposit. My tax bill is lower than ever. That isn't nothing. It's everything.

You are right that the campaign was lacking and the 4 year majority was squandered considering they governed to avoid the exact outcome of the last election. It was a mistake. I wrote a blog 2 years ago saying exactly that.

You wrong if you are pretending Harper wasn't demonized and vilified to sway low info voters. Let's all stop pretending.

Believe what you say, say what you believe but for us, non low info voters, you are incorrect.

On the first day that PMSH was first elected as PM, the media followed him during his routine walk to school with Ben. I read nothing but disgusting analysis from Canadian media of why he wasn't more lovey dovey. IT WAS THEM that set the precedent and they did it on purpose.

I don't give an ounce of credence to drama during an election and although I agree their campaign wasn't as cranked up as it should have been, they didn't have obscene dollars and 3rd party support rolling in. THAT showed to me our fiscal brain and the LIBERAL drama, theirs.

I care that I have a safe, secure country and one that has the entire economy of the nation in their radar. THAT was PMSH, not the entitled TRUDEAU.

Fred isn't wrong. Government is bigger under Harper and taxes were lowered in the most inefficient manner. At least they were lowered, though, that really is a plus. But BIGGER government? Really?! That's not conservative. On balance this wasn't a very successful conservative government. There was a chance to do significant conservative reform to government. It didn't happen.
