Common sense

BC Elections: NDP supporters in for rude awakening

45 posts in this topic

No it makes more sense just to watch the Ndp collapse in on itself again.

Telling the leftist Ndp voting base to go frack themselves is a great start. What's next? Oh right. It's Dix. So nothing.

He'll be out before he even has a chance to establish himself. Question is if the Libs get their crap together by then. Not that it matters. By then everyone will have forgotten about 'the atrocities' they've committed while being so annoyed by the Ndp's inability to do anything and the myriad of scandals Dix and his crook cronies will be stuck in that even Christy Clark will start to look vote-worthy. (A stretch, i know.)

How about we let the BC NDP speak for itself?

The Constitution of the New Democratic Party of British Columbia

PREAMBLE

The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be

assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public
affairs.

The principles of democratic socialism can be defined briefly as follows
: a)
the production and distribution

of goods and services shall be directed to meeting the social and individual needs of people and not for

profit,
B)
the modification and control of the operations of monopolistic productive and distributive

organizations through economic and social planning, towards these ends
, and c)
where necessary, the

extension of the principle of social ownership.

The New Democratic Party holds firm to the belief that the dignity, freedom and equality of the individual

is a basic right that must be maintained and extended.

The New Democratic Party is proud to be associated with the democratic socialist parties of the world
and to share in the struggle for peace, international co-operation and the abolition of poverty.

Sounds like "a left socialistic leaning party" to me.

As compared to the BC Liberal party constitution:

(2) The principles of the Party are:

(a) a belief in supporting the rights, freedoms and dignity of all British

Columbians and encouraging their responsible participation in forms of social

organization which articulate a common interest;

(
B)
a belief in the rights of citizens to democratically elect government;

(c )
a belief in the rights of every person to own and enjoy property and whereby

private property will be protected by law and may not be taken without just

cause and full and fair compensation;

(d) a belief that every individual is equal before and under the law and has the

right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination

and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic

origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability;

(e) a belief in the freedoms

(i) of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press

and other media of communication;

(ii) of peaceful assembly;

(iii) of conscience and religion;

(iv) of association;

(v)
to participate in a free private enterprise system and to enjoy the fruits of

labour to the greatest possible extent;

(f)
a belief in the commitment to achieve a fair-minded and prosperous society by

means of a sustainable, competitive and compassionate free enterprise system,

in which individual initiative is balanced by protection of the rights, freedoms

and dignity of all individuals, and which is qualified to sustain vital services to

those in need;

(g) a belief that government must be responsive to the needs of the people of the

province, and must seek their responsible participation in the economic and

social development of British Columbia;

(h) a belief in the responsibility of the people of British Columbia to

(i) personally provide for themselves, their families and their dependants

and collectively by government to care and provide for the needs of

people who are unable to care and provide for themselves;

(ii) direct government to act sustainably to ensure future generations have

similar social, economic and environmental opportunities;

(i) a belief in the principles of universal public access to health care and education

and public support for those in need;

(j) a belief in the responsibility of government to

(i) promote the general well-being of the people by enacting legislation

which reflects the will of the people;

(ii)
operate sustainably such that future generations will have similar

economic, social and environmental opportunities, which requires

government to operate with a balanced budget void of deficit financing;

(iii)
be fiscally prudent and therefore to limit taxation;

(k) a belief in the democratic process

Sounds like a centre right coalition government protecting private property, promoting free enterprise and exercising fiscal prudence while limiting taxes, i.e. not "a left socialistic leaning party" like the BC NDP.

Thank you for proving two points: first, you don't have the first clue about socio-economic principles; and second, you can't construct an argument to save your life. You rely on words that appear intuitive to your self, and those who do not accept them are deemd as idiotic in your elitist opinion.

A waste of band width like I have never witnessed before.

EDIT: and just so I'm clear, you felt the need to reply to my post without ever answering my question. You quote, then make some uneducated response: again, with a point that is seemingly self-evident to yourself, but idiotic to anyone who has the first clue about politco-economic issues.

To spell it out futher for my uninformed elitist friend - "socialism" has been described by many as the fional epoch of humanity whereby there is no private property and so on..."left" tendencies are, to some (not me) aligned with people who side with labour, more state driven enterprise an so on. So I ask again. WTF does left socialistic policies even mean???

Come on Wet...find me some pre-fabricated quote that can answer for you.

Is that NDP popcorn? You'll need some Liberal kool-aid so your throat doesn't get too dry.

(What's sad is that these are our only two choices. Ms. Unvoteworthy vs. The Crook.)

The whole o.p is laughing because the N.D.P is going to inherit the Con\Liberals mess. Thanks for nothing. :picard: I think the people of B.C might surprise you with their patience, they know the NDP won't be able to clean up this disaster over night. Perhaps the jokes on you?

Just remember to blindly support the NDP through salary cuts, job layoffs, and increased taxation. Like Obama's America, you can only blame the previous administration for so long...

What are the odds the same group of people that support the NDP will be the first ones walking off the job, organizing rallies in Victoria, and crying to the media because their saviour Adrian Dix failed to deliver. When the faithful union duepayers see their salary stagnating even in the era of Dix and their hours cut back, they can only blame Clark for so long. At least we know what we're expecting with the BC Liberals - wait till Dix and the NDP do a 180 from their campaign spin.

Typical Liberal supporter response...foresee the future. Anything to escape the reality of the present, eh?

Funny, every Liberal supporter either turns into a history teacher or a clairvoyant.

Keep drinking the kool-aid.

Actually, Christy Clark and her circus of inept clowns are writing the material. I'm just passing it on.

But thanks for the compliment anyways.

"A wise man knows he knows nothing", yet Wetcoaster seems to know everything. The fact is "know-it-all's" are generally the least intelligent people you'll talk to all day. It's even scientifically proven.

For the first time, I might throw my vote at some random party because I don't feel my vote counts for much anyway. It's just the same watered down promises made to feed a delusional population.

All of Canada, and BC in particular, is in for a rude awakening, regardless of who gets elected.

Decades of living beyond our means, putting next to no money into infrastructure, running up huge amounts of debt just as the population begins to shift into a time with more aged tax takers and much less tax payers is going to result in less service, more taxes, and higher debts unless something radical is changed.

And even then there's not much hope.

Interesting how my reply was never answered. Love posters who make stupid claims then walk away when challenged.
