DN Debate. A conservative block is the wrong way to go for the Conservatives

It has now been over 100 days since the election day and it is not yet clear which parties will be in possession of the government in the month of February, or if we go to extra options. Actually, the positions are not changed at all in the last two years, however, have a kind of metadiskussion begun to emerge about the logic of blocs. The differences between the Centre party and the Liberals on the one hand, and the Moderates and the Christian democrats on the other hand, is portrayed as so great that they should be divided into two different blocks. I am worried about the development. I am a liberal and therefore a moderate, not the other way around. The conservatives are a liberalkonservativt party. To be included in a block that only takes into account half of the party's ideology, in addition, a different kind of conservatism than the market-oriented and libertarian, which is within the moderate party, therefore, is the wrong way to go.

the Frustration within the american sphere is pretty big right now. If there is a parliamentary support for lower taxes, better conditions for police officers, increased defence spending and more knowledge in school, why not use it? In the same way as it was Fredrik Reinfeldt and the Moderates who went forward with the proposal of gender-neutral marriage, but the Party also voted in favour, then, of course, to not back down and instead be opposed to homosexuals getting married. Now that there has emerged a contest of who is the most against The Swedish democrats, despite the fact that almost one in five swedes voted for them, it stands in the way and hinder key reforms in Sweden. In addition, you have to ask yourself, if the ”to reduce the SD's influence” is more important than pushing their own policies, we achieve the best to pull down the regeringsfrågan to dagisnivå and get Jimmie Åkesson to be the voice of reason?

is that at any given time, try to get their proposals through, otherwise you can start a think tank or become an editorial writer. Why can't Conservatives be afraid to submit a budget or sharp legislative proposals only to a party would be willing to support it. Right now, there is one big hypocrisy, a kind of charades, when it comes to the ”SD issue”. No party may negotiate with them, but all parties (including the V, MP and (C) adjust sometimes their proposals that they should be able to vote on them. Members may greet each other, but take a black cup of coffee outside parliament, touches the boundary. The exception is however, if they are on the way, and then members from all parties and shop, drink wine and have fun together.

you Should make one of a kind interpretation of the sweden democrats ' ideology, the significantly more statskramande, företagarfientlig and emotional than what our conservatism has been since Gösta Bohman's time as party leader.

The ongoing metadiskussionen now seems to be only two options: to continue with the charade or form a new conservative block. But there is a third in a funeral, namely, to accept support on issues where you think the same but not to form a joint regeringsblock together. The main reason for a new conservative block is not to be formed is of ideological and values-based character, the Moderates and The sweden democrats think simply too different to be able to form an alliance together. Consistency with the Liberals and the Centre party, however, is palpable in all matters except regeringsfrågan.

for its policy in the parliamentary mode as Sweden find themselves in need of a refreshingly down to earth setting in terms of who supports even a proposal. That the Conservatives should push for lower taxes depends hardly on these proposals happen to have the support from The sweden democrats, but has its roots in the conviction of increasing individual freedom. There is a difference between land in the same opinion in individual issues, and to form a common block where it should be compromised. The conservatives could not possibly negotiate away historic libertarian achievements such as membership of the EU, aborträtten and the rule of law. Hence would be a so-called conservative block completely the wrong way for a libertarian party like the Conservatives.

The very worst thing that can happen if the Conservatives form a government that is accepted by both L and C as the SD is a social democratic proposal or a S-budget voted through in parliament. Namely, it is the social Democrats ' proposal that will stand against the Alliance in the last voteringsomgången. If SD then together with V and the MP chose to support the socialist proposal against the Alliance so it will go through, but The sweden democrats may not enforce any policies of their own just because they are the tongue on the scales between the Alliance and the left. Compared with the harmful policies that for four years with Stefan Löfven would mean seems not a social democratic victory in the reichstag with a alliansregering that much worse.

I have come across a whole palette of political views on many different social problems. Ideologically, I have met new deal, the military, conservatives, and after. However, I have not met a single conservative who does not believe in a market economy, lower taxes and free enterprise. It is the liberal in Conservatives – where we also belong to the ranks of the most liberal parties among our foreign military sister parties – that makes värderingsbasen so essentially different from The sweden democrats. The conservatives described the split between conservatives and liberals is in fact not a splitting but a braid. Our liberal ideas and conservative perspective, rests on the same approach vis-à-vis the state and the nation, on the one hand, and individuals, families and businesses on the other side. More power to the individual and less to the crown, however, with some exceptions, to guarantee law and order, stability and Sweden's integrity against external enemies. Freedom under responsibility. Libertarian conservatism or realistic liberalism, the differences are barely perceptible.

To do a nice interpretation of the sweden democrats ' ideology, the significantly more statskramande, företagarfientlig and emotional than what our conservatism has been since Gösta Bohman's time as party leader. A part sverigedemokrater is for free trade and is in his life, health, others do not. Some of the representatives have a similar view on the people themselves to decide more in their lives, but many of them don't have it. Their nationalkonservatism with socialist elements has more similarities with the political parties on the left than the bourgeois parties, when it comes to the perception of the role of the state in people's everyday lives and the national economy.

as long As the Centre party and the Liberals believe in a market economy, and The sweden democrats don't do it, we have more in common with them. It does not mean that the Alliance needs to agree on everything, but it does mean that we agree on the foundation slab. Regeringsfrågan should not be allowed to obscure the long visibility of the direction in which Sweden should go in.
