Question for Liberal Supporters


Recommended Posts

Are you sure? I think it is entirely possible, same as flying bodily fluids at the Pride Parade.

:) Damn, you're right; I keep forgetting about the "consider the possibility" admonishment we received yesterday (ie. that maybe Layton really does troll for Asian prostitutes).

So, there's a possibility that all the Liberal support will suddenly bleed into the Conservative Party...tomorrow; and maybe Gay Pride parades really are dangerous sites of potential infection; and perhaps SunTV is the only credible news source.

Anything's "possible," after all.

On the other ahnd. Who thought for weeks ago that the NDP would be a shoo-in for the Official Opposition and hovering around 30% in polls.

Not me. I smugly scorned any such notions when anyone floated them. It's nice to be proven wrong on some occasions.

As I said to some people... I think Jack Layton must have asked himself quite a few times "what the heck is happening?".

Thanks to Paul Martin. No thanks to Flaherty, who has brought back deficits, and whose government has engaged and is engaged in reckless, unnecessary spending.

Reckless, unecessary spending. how so?

Interesting that you mention the stimulus spending. The opposition parties basically had to force Flaherty's hand on this.

So does this contradict the previous statement since my recollection is that both Jack and Iggy scolded Harper not spending enough and not fast enough. So by spending more we'd have less deficit?

As for the fear of the big bag NDP. This is not the 1990's, and this is not the same NDP.

Please do elaborate, not the same maybe worse?

In terms of where we stand economically after the recession there is plenty of credit to go around, and it probably starts with Michael Wilson who under Mulroney set the course which Paul Martin ultimately followed. Under Chretien, there was much not to like, but that government was fiscally conservative and nothing like what Dion/ Iggy have done to the party. There is little difference between the basic principles of the NDP and Liberal financial platforms, neither is a fiscal plan any more than 649 is retirement planning.

When you spend more one planes that what they should cost, that's reckless and that's unnecessary. When you build more prisons than what is needed, that's reckless. The level of spending for the G20 was unecessary (remember th fake lake?).

The issue is not how much you pend, or invest, but how wisely. Properly targetted stimulus spending was exactly that, a stimulus. Spending more on airplanes than hat they should actually cost is a waste.

For one, the NDP fiscal program includes cuts to taxes for small businesses, including cuts linked to job creation. That's something that the Ontario NDP in the 1990's never thought about.

And neither is the Conservatives`. What we get with them is a continuation of the same lack of control over spending and the debunked belief that ctax cuts after tax cuts to big foreign-controlled corporation will cause them to re-invest all of it here.

Tell me that you and Harper are not serious in asking Liberals to vote for Conservatives? For 5 years Harper has abused, beaten, spent millions to demonize Dion and Ignatieff and now we should vote for Conservatives? Is he daft?

Are the rest of you daft? ABC

Forget ABC. The Liberal Party is not a choice. They're brokerage. They're the equivalent of saying you have no vision for the country. The real choice is between the CPC and NDP tomorrow. Your ABC vote should be a vote for the NDP. The death of the Liberals makes a vote for them a pointless splitting of the left.
