You're a comedian.

Keep up the great jokes!


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.

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.


Same. I'm leaning Green at this point barring a better option revealing itself in my riding. I wish more people would wake up to the fact that the NDP/Liberals are just opposite sides of the same greasy, corrupt coin. Neither of whom deserve or have earned our votes. You have options people.

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 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 an 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 final 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.


"It has been described by many"

"Some say"

Great ways to make up "fact" with no attribution. :)

Also, your definition of socialism isn't the only one. There are many.

System of social organization in which private property and the distribution of income are subject to social control; also, the political movements aimed at putting that system into practice. Because “social control” may be interpreted in widely diverging ways, socialism ranges from statist to libertarian, from Marxist to liberal. The term was first used to describe the doctrines of Charles Fourier, Henri de Saint-Simon, and Robert Owen, who emphasized noncoercive communities of people working noncompetitively for the spiritual and physical well-being of all (seeutopian socialism). Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, seeing socialism as a transition state between capitalism and communism, appropriated what they found useful in socialist movements to develop their “scientific socialism.” In the 20th century, the Soviet Union was the principal model of strictly centralized socialism, while Sweden and Denmark were well-known for their noncommunist socialism. See alsocollectivism, communitarianism, social democracy.



So left socialistic policies are generally those that increase the collection of property and resources by the government (social control) in order to redistribute those resources back to the 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.

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.)


There is a third choice, Mr. Titanic (John Cummins). The man is probably a stronger personality than Dix or Clark, has a lot of good policies up his sleeves. But he's also gone and sunk his own party with all the infighting. He can't win an election with that kind of a machine.

He is actually quite knowledgeable, especially when it comes to matters of law.

Wise men actually know quite a bit. In fact they are wise because they know more than the average Joe (else, why would they be wise?). They realize they don't know everything, and that what they don't know is larger than what they do.

Here lies the rub; I don't doubt certain posters are strong in certain fields (like law). However, aside from being able to interpret and argue legislation passed by governments such as the Liberal or Conservative regimes, how does that help in terms of "macro" arguments for society?

The law is maluable. One who does not realize this, or is unwilling to entertain ideas that dare to seek alternatives, is far from wise in my opinion.

What the hell is maluable? There's no such thing as maluable. Don't you know anything? The CDC Grammar Police says that's not a word. You mean malleable don't you? That means you can hammer metal into a flat sheet without breaking it. What does that have to do with politics in BC? How can the law be maluable? There must be some legislation around here somewhere...

I'm reasonably sure public sector workers are very aware of just how broke and screwed up the province is. I'm also pretty sure they remember the last NDP government and the 0,0,2 % raise era under the same ndp. They know there is no pot of gold coming.
however if the ndp do get in they at can at least expect to be treated in a fair, respectful manner. I also think the ndp will honor existing contracts, something the other party did not do, that cost taxpayers $70 mill.


What gets me is as bad as all the Liberals say the ndp was and will be, a majority of people seem to believe that the ndp is the better choice. To me that says more about the current and past liberal mess than anythingelse

Ok, but those environmentalists walking around outside Clark's constituency office are going to be in for a surprise. Either way, whether it's Dix or Clark, the pipeline will be done.

Holy smokes calm down. You're starting to sound like a fear-mongering Republican crazy person.

(Don't worry I'm not really calling you crazy, the statement just reminded me of all the melodramatic politics down south :) )

Anyways, I'm pretty much flat-out stupid when it comes to B.C politics, any opinions on the B.C Cons? And I'm guessing the NDP have had a terrible economic track record?
