OK,

So tomorrow, Ontario is going to the ballot box to elect our next Premier (and MPP's)...

Tragically, it looks as though the Liberals are going to win this upcoming Provincial election....which can only mean one thing....my pockets are soon to be lighter :(

For any Ontarians who are (as yet) still undecided, here are some links to the 3 major parties....

Tories (aka Progressive Conservative party)

Grits (aka Ontario Liberal Party aka Taxpayer-raping scum of the earth)

http://www.ontarioliberal.on.ca/en/

NDP (aka New Democratic Party aka Socialists that pretend they're not Socialists)

http://www.publicpower.ca/index.htm

I personally will be voting Conservative, not because I believe that they'll really be positive for Ontario, but because the Liberal party will cause so much more damage, and their thoughtless policy decisions are based more on ideology and rhetoric than reality (i.e.-scrapping "work-for-welfare", scrapping mandatory drug-testing for welfare recipients, etc.).

I would encourage all voters in Ontario to carefully weigh the issues at hand and to remember what McGuinty and the Liberals are promising right now...

Once they get in office, Liberals have a tendency to contract a severe case of "campaign-promise amnesia".

P.S-Don't forget to start hiding your money in your socks and under your matress....The Libs will be coming by soon to "collect" :eek:

Well, as expected, the Libs have won by a landslide :(

I probably won't be coming back to TSG anymore, as the tax increases I'm sure to be facing will make it too expensive to pay for an ISP :eek:

OK....maybe I'm being slightly melodramatic.....but can you blame me? :(

I wish the Terminator would come up here and run....

Hi columbo:

Tax increase? Typical right-wing pretzel logic. The Tories spend themselves into a billion dollar degt, then the Liberals will be ctitisized for having to raise taxes to pay off the debt. 2 years from now the Tories will be yelling at how bad the economy is.:confused:

I feel your pain Columbo. Fat Cat politicians pump more money into bloated government budgets and liberal social utopia agendas. The only people that benefit are people who don't want to work for a living. Unfortunately, if become a vicious circle. More benefits make it easier to get buy without working. Taxes are increased on the working class making less incentive to work. The cycle reaches the point where the working class becomes the minority and are forced to support a parasitic segment of the population, which includes the politicians. Add in to that the segment of stupid working people who think the government robbing them of their hard earned money is somehow socially beneficial and you'll get liberals elected over and over.

Fortunately, down here Americans are a little smarter and realize that paying more than 50% in taxes is not fair. You see that in California--we have the hightest income tax, the highest sales tax, and the highest property tax in the country (no suprise since the state if run by liberal Democrats much like you have in you liberal party in Canada). The people have taken matters into their own hands and said they are madder than hell and aren't going to take it anymore.

Arnold's commercial is pretty good. He talks about how we wake up and drink coffee, we are taxed, we get in our cars, we are taxed, we get to work, we are taxed, we go to lunch we are taxed--all day long we are taxed.

And he's absolutely right. What I can never figure out is why working people vote for liberals? :confused:
