My blogs are not politically focused, although politics sometimes needs to be discussed. I am a moderate conservative politically as I am theologically. The following advertisements are informative, interesting and amusing.
Chucky Norris recently supports Baptist Mike Huckabee.
Chuck has a Christian area on his website.
I am not a supporter of the federal Liberals above, and leader Stephane Dion does not look good in this 2007 Conservative advertisement. Dion in the clip appears to be whining. Presently we have a Conservative minority government in Canada and it is rare that the Liberals are not in power. I dislike the high taxation approach of the Liberals and that they brought in same-sex marriage rather than a compromise with civil unions.
On July 20, 2005, Canada became the fourth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide with the approval of the Civil Marriage Act. Court decisions, starting in 2003, had already legalized same-sex marriage in eight out of ten provinces and one of three territories, whose residents comprised about 90% of Canada's population. Before passage of the Act, more than 3,000 same-sex couples had already married in these areas.  Most legal benefits commonly associated with marriage had been extended to cohabiting same-sex couples since 1999.
The Civil Marriage Act was introduced by Paul Martin's Liberal government in the Canadian House of Commons on February 1, 2005 as Bill C-38. It was passed by the House of Commons on June 28, 2005, by the Senate on July 19, 2005, and it received Royal Assent the following day. On December 7, 2006, the House of Commons effectively reaffirmed the legislation by a vote of 175 to 123, defeating a Conservative motion to examine the matter again.
I would like to see longer sentences provided for serious crimes in this country but I doubt the Conservatives will stay in power long enough to appoint Conservative type judges that would take crime and punishment more seriously than our liberal elite does.
The above Liberal commercial is from 2006. It is an appeal to liberal mindset of far too many in this country. Oh no, if the Conservatives did bring the military to Canadian streets, and it seems doubtful they would, it may lower the crime rate! The soldiers could get in the way of some of the illegal drug trade and the personal vices of certain Canadians. We cannot have this take place in this country! The people this ad is appealing to are the same types that keep voting for the federal Liberals to stay in power and make sure that we never have a powerful military. If people in this country want to have greater separation from American foreign policy, less dependence on the American military would be a good first step, with a far stronger and more sovereign Canada. However, I guess that takes too much common sense.
