I've often been wondering about the reduction in military spending that ensued throughout the Trudeau and subequent Liberal years with the thought being; all that money went somewhere into other programs. They ran deficits. Although, while one Liberal attempted to balance the budget after he had served as finance minister for years, helping to create this boodoggle, there has been no avowed committment to adhere to a balanced budget from basicly any of them with now, a renewed spending spree on the part of the party that holds itself to be the most fiscally responsible of all.
I watched amazed as Bob Rae, wearing his NDP costume, basicly threw money at every pandering group from MADD to Buddie's In Bad Times Theatre while Ontario's premiere. We are expected to believe the NDP has gained some reasoned logic to their platform of appeal to the middle class - not likely. Their programs of entitlement would bankrupt us overnight with day care for every one, green power and a chicken in every pot!
Now we come to the rebirth, or metaporphis of the Liberals as contenders for the throne and we are expected to find some differences between them of the past and Bob Rae's new fraternal organization? Good grief, these folks change hats faster than Red Skelton!
Which brings me to the Conservatives, who I've been voting for by the by, that are now returning some common sense to the equation but are spending like drunken sailors in doing so. I agree with the miltary purchases, I agree with attempts to bring logic to immigration, I even agree with the current black eye but the resultant airing of reserve's dirty laundry as a result of years of pandering without accountability to various native bands.
Having admitted to voting for this particular party am I, once again, going to be blind sided by a massive deficit with further "kicking the debt can down the road" with subsequent guilt trips by disenfranchised demographic groups of Canadians to be laid at my feet?
How the hell does one choose? To have any effective control over ANY government, I'm thinking we have to stand right behind them with the threat of physical harm to them when they attempt to raise their stupid paws to vote for some piece of chit legislation that does nothing but spend more money on crap.
