Today's C's have much more in common with their Reform roots, which is why they are really beginning to **** people off.

1. Today, most people don't even know what the Reform Party was.
2. People are not suddenly discovering this,
3. Stephen Harper is more "progressive" today than he was 10 year ago.

C'mon now, face reality. We didn't vote for a party, we voted to punish a party. That is the real truth.

This Conservative party did come out of the Reform party, but the similarities end there. They have far more in common with the old PCs than they do with Reform on any issue.

If I had to choose between Reform and Conservative, I would vote Reform hands down.

I believe Peter MacKay, the man who sold the PC party down the river after promising not to, was the last man left if the original guard, and he's leaving like so many other rats when they abandon ship. Ain't no P in PC for a long time now, and there ain't much C left either. What you have is Harper's new vision for Canada: a Reform turned Alliance disguised as a Conservative party running the country with little to no accountability.

Actually, that isn't what I see at all.

It is somewhat "pogressive"--which is to say, going in the wrong direction. It is somewhat "conservative"--but not enough--and still makes far more sense than either the Liberals or NDP. It is accountable--but not to socialists such as yourself--because the party does not share your worldview, except by chance.

If it was so accountable, why on earth is Harper so afraid of media scrums? And why is he so afraid to participate in a televised leaders' debate with the other leaders in a format Canadians have used since the Dawn if television in Canada? If this is your idea of "accountable" then I'm not sure you're using the same definition as the rest of the world. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1434907676.870604.jpg
