My Election Issues

...that no one is talking about (heavy sigh):

1. Can the CBC and scale down the CRTCs powers.
2. Massive overhaul of health care, back to its original idea (hospital coverage only, but pay as you go to the family doctor).
3. Defang, or better yet, dismantle the CHRC.
4. Up funding to our armed forces
5. Aboriginal governments pay their own way and become responsible to their people rather than INAC.
6. Reform the justice system so that prison sentences are served in their entirety and repeat offenders are given more severe sentences.
7. Tell the Bloc to shove it where the sun don't shine or leave, otherwise, we boot Quebec out of confederation and they take their share of the debt with them.
8. No more funding any nonsense to do with global warming unless we also fund research to stop the earth orbiting around the sun.
9. Target funding to post-secondary institutions to those programs that actually produce value for Canadian society, such as medical fields, engineering, commerce, scientific research and maybe law, and training of teachers.
10. Tighten up immigration policy so that only those immigrants who have skills that we need are allowed in and only if they come with money to support themselves and any family members that come with them or follow them. Also consider implementing certain residency requirements that would effectively eliminate "citizens of convenience" who, after getting their citizenship, spend most of their time back in their country of origin, but expect Canadian protection when trouble arises.
11. Can marketing boards.
12. Severely limit grants to non-profit organizations based on their value to society and to those with a track record of success.
13. Tax breaks for corporations that fund the arts with a corresponding cut in arts funding from the government.
14. Bring back the death penalty for certain classes of murder, such as serial killers, child killers and honour killings.

Some of these things are actually in the Conservative Policy booklet: Here for Canada

Some are not. But I'll take what I can get.

That strikes me as a very constructive agenda but that can't be implemented until the Conservatives have a majority. In other words, these would be the fruits of a majority. So, I guess the question is how do the Conservatives go from largest minority to a working majority?

At this point in history, this "agenda" is a pipe dream. There's probably some prioritization needed. The CBC should be the first thing to go, 'cause they are the main propaganda source that sustains the anti-conservative movement, which has been with us since the 30ths. So, as far as timelines are concerned, it took us 60 to 70 years to get into this mess so I expect it will take longer than just one term with a Conservative majority. The change has to come from the grass roots up. The death of the Liberal Party would be a good beginning, but I'm not holding my breath.

I agree with all but #7. If the bloc does not like Canada because it is not French enough or whatever they can pack their asses off to France and be as French as they like. DO NOT GIVE THEM DICK. THEY HAVE BLED US ENOUGH ALREADY. We bring Quebec back into confederation and they start paying their own way.

Okay, I'm a lousy writer. That was meant to mean that they take their share with them. I'll tinker with it.

I agree with your proposals, although I am not entirely enamored at the idea of paying for medical services in retirement after having spent the last 30 years paying for other people's medical bills.

Also, point 9 on education could go further. Serious reductions in funding to institutions such as OISE that offer graduate level training in character-disordered victimhood would be appropriate. The future might also appear brighter if we stop ramming cultural marxism down the throats of primary school children before they are old enough to think.
