Conservatives New Nanny State

Angryroughneck a Blogging Tory denounces the Harpocrites for being Statists. I love it.

Before it was only outright socialists that fought for big controlling governments but now conservatives also believe in big intervening governments.

Ain't it a bitch when reality slaps you in the face. And my pal Rusty Idols agrees.

Thanks for the link. Yeah its a centrist spending budget - of course it's the budget a minority Conservative government has to create just to hold onto their minority and have any hope of finagling a majority.

A majority Conservative budget would be different - but unlikely in the foreseeable future. Also there is some merit to the argument that they may be trying to spend and tax cut the coffers empty so they can justify painful austerity measures down the road. You know, the clasic US Republican method.

And the shameful inaction on First Nations aside, it does diminish any argument that there is some essential diference between the Conservatives or Liberals. Either way, in a minorty the results come closer to the Canadian mainstream's wishes than either a majority Conservative OR majority Liberal government.
