The reality is, we are bent over a barrel and you just have to decide who you want to f*ck you for the next 4 to 8 years. The only losers are the public here. The party that loses will gain power in 4 to 8 and can apply their terrible agenda then. I dislike both parties, a LOT. I will be burying my head in the sand this election. First time in my life that I will not be voting...


Vote elsewhere then. It's this small minded thinking that there's only two options that the two lead parties count on to keep it a two party race. They in fact do everything they can to convince you of the idea. It's time the public started to realize this and demand more and better options.

They are both raising taxes, but the NDP policy is backwards?

They raise a lot more taxes and cut a lot more revenue by getting in the way of our main industries.

Define 'a lot more'
Define 'getting in the way'

And of course, dare I mention there is more to the world than short term cash?

And they were told continually throughout the campaign that this would happen and yet they listened to The Zalm and his clown car tour backed by the BC NDP.


Yeah I agree totally, the entire HST thing was voted down based solely on people's emotion rather then them thinking things through. Same thing that's going to happen this election. People will base there voting off their anger towards the Liberals and some of their stupid decisions they've made instead of remebering how much the NDP will destroy the economy in this Province just as they did in the 90's. Some people think Dix has turned over a new leaf from his activity during the previous NDP's term....I'd LMAO if it wasn't so serious.

A lot more in personal, sales, carbon, and taxes to banking.

In the way by blocking pipelines, reviewing fracking, and putting in an added layer of bureaucracy via the new forestry rep they want in.

There is more to the world than just cash but as soon as you don't have any you will note many people will literally kill to get it back.

That's all quite vague.

Not nearly so vague as the costing projections of the BC NDP platform.

Didn't they say the same kinds things about the liberals getting in in the states. But then they turned their economy around and now their stock market is at record levels? Oh yeah and then they won another term.

There has been next to no tax increases in the states (thanks to the Americans for Tax Reform for better or worse, mostly worse IMO) and the economy isn't exactly stellar down there.

Oh, and the federal government budget deficit is still spiraling out of control.

And of course the NDP is far, FAAAR to the left of the American democrat party.

Unlike the states, the province of BC (heck, Canada is locked into it's decision making by what the states does) doesn't have the ability to play shenanigans with the currency like the US does.

The point that you missed, is the fear mongering, fact twisting bs.

I am simply watching history repeat itself. That some people would fear that is understandable. It wasn't pretty last time.

BC will be just fine under whoever gets into power. That's the magic of having so many resources at your beck and call. If things get too tight then you adjust. If the engine begins to run too fast you put on the brakes. The province isn't going to go into turmoil whoever is running it. No need to fear monger for the sake of fear mongering on this one.

Except we're doing the opposite.

And Canada, and especially BC and Ontario, are in serious trouble no matter who we elect.

That our debt bomb (measured relative to incomes were no worse than the US was right before their GFC) is going to go off soon just as we elect a business unfriendly government is optimizing bad timing.
