Clark and Campbell both lied when they said
They would respect bargained contracts.
They didn't.

They both lied about the HST.
Even if Clark was not in office she supported it.

What's been clearly established on all of these forums is that the Liberal apologists are okay with any and all malfeasance, illegal activity, or unethical behaviour on the part of the Liberals in general. They tell us to look the other way and remember what happened more than ten years ago, and ignore or forget what has happened since then and is continuing right now. Meanwhile, some of us who don't want the Liberals to get in again and send the clear and unmistakeable message that malfeasance will be rewarded – carry on. We see that there are two flawed choices, but recognize one rewards current corruption. Too bad the highly partisan apologists on here can't see the flaws in their own party. There is another choice.

I too have voted Liberal in the past.
Never again, for the reasons stated.

Some of the writing in this post is very good!
:127:
However, I've been saying all along that the Liberals do not deserve to be reelected. Realistically, however, we have only two parties from which to choose when it comes to picking a party to run the province. Some of the NDP partisans on here have made every excuse in the book for Dix's ethical lapses as well as for the malfeasance of the NDP and they simply see Dix and the NDP as pure as the driven snow. As well, some of the criticism directed against Christy Clark and the Liberals is way off base. It's sexist as well as trivial. If the polls are right Dix and the NDP will form the government in May and no matter what happens - even if we end up with another 1990's scenario, the NDP partisans will be hailing the return of the golden years. I guarantee it.

Current corruption by Adrian Dix:

1.) convicted of theft, 2012
2.) theft of constituency funding for NDP advertising, 2013
3.) contempt of parliament and breach of trust, 2013


Okay, you want to reward current corruption by voting NDP?

It's incredibly ironic to see posters excusing, ignoring, or playing the "hey look over there card" when it comes to the illegal activities, malfeasance, and ethical lapses of Dix and the NDP accusing those who point out those things of somehow having their head in a dark place.

If you're really trying to take the high ground then there are other choices than voting to perpetuate the status quo and the re-election of “governments we deserve”.

Again, really well written! Your prose has really picked up lately!

Surely you will acknowledge that there are some posters on here who won't say anything negative against Dix or the NDP, even ignoring actual illegal activities or ethical lapses, while simultaneously blasting Clark for the way she dresses or her getting pictures taken etc. Speaking for myself, I've been very critical of the Liberals - e.g. handling of the BC Rail sale, the implementation of the HST, and the subsequent throwing in the towel on it to try and save their political bacon, too much spending in some areas etc. but when I mention the failings of the NDP I become a Liberal lapdog who isn't getting on the Dix bandwagon. Carry on though and keep up that superb prose!

Of course there's some of that by both camps but there are far more posters who hear no evil, see no evil, or speak no evil when it comes to the NDP. When you hear things like "no government could be worse" you realize that emotions or ignorance or both have taken over from reason. And you must acknowledge that all of this MILF garbage and the winking/wiggling rhetoric as well as other sexist rants have all become a bit much. And as I've said previously you have Dix claiming to abhor personal attacks while his supporters on here are engaging in those attacks post after post.

” ... far more posters who hear no evil, see no evil, or speak no evil when it comes to the NDP” ? Seriously Urbane ? You don’t recognize the deflection and lame excuses and poor attempts of rationalization by the many Liberal apologists on this board ? You’re so focused in on Dix that you’ve willingly blinded yourself to the ongoing malfeasance and misdirection occurring right now by this government presently burning millions of our tax dollars at this very moment (never mind the billions in future "contractual obligations") and are prepared to reward that for nothing more than partisanship? Am I to bet you also think successful corporate managers in ownership positions spend their "work" days playing with photoshop and posting on forums?
