Alberta Election Rant

There's a provincial election in Alberta next week.  This is huge.  Alberta is traditionally a fairly conservative (red neck) population, but it seems to be getting worse.  One of the newer political parties is gaining in popularity, and it scares the snot out of me.

Things to know about the Wild Rose Party:

  • Their official stance on global warming is that they don't believe the science behind it.
  • One of their candidates stated on the radio that he feels he has an advantage in the election because he's white.
  • Another Wild Rose Candidate publicly admitted to believing that homosexuals will spend eternity in a lake of fire once they die.
Amazingly, the Wild Rose party has a chance at winning! 

I believe in equality for gays, straights, men and women - whether they are black, white or brown.  I believe in free healthcare, education at a reasonable price and environmental responsibility over commerce. I am a staunch Liberal. 

Next week, I'll be voting for the Progressive Conservative Party, in the hopes that the Wild Rose doesn't win.
