Who knows, maybe if he implemented a true conservative agenda, Prime Minister Harper might even win his coveted majority government in the next election. Then again, maybe he won’t. But at least he would have accomplished something while in power.
And isn’t that what politics is really supposed to be all about? It’s got to mean more than just winning elections or holding onto power for the sake of holding onto power. That’s how Liberals think. For conservatives, at least, politics should be about making Canada a freer and better place. (…)
A true leader stands for certain principles and then convinces others to support those principles.
Margaret Thatcher was a leader. Ronald Reagan was leader. In the last election, the Conservative party kept telling us Stephen Harper was a leader.
It’s time he proved it.
