Agenda of NDP government predicted

Editor: If after the polls close in B.C. on May 14, 2013, the NDP forms government, this will be its agenda.

The NDP will bankrupt the province, lose the triple AAA credit rating, take B.C. once again to a “have-not province,” top off all funding to government ministries, give all government employees pay raises, in return for a increase in taxes to the taxpayers.

It will create unemployment because B.C. is a business province, and businesses don’t invest in NDP territory. It will have all decisions approved by B.C. Federation of Labour boss Jim Sinclair, call a provincial election in May, 2017, and once again lose the election to a coalition government, which will have to start all over again in cleaning up a NDP mess.

That’s just what Bill Bennett of the Social Credit party had to do after a Dave Barrett NDP government, and Gordon Campbell did after a Glen Clark, Dan Miller, Ujjal Dosanjh three stooge NDP government.

Before marking your ballot, ask yourself this: Who pays you a paycheque every second Friday? Is it a B.C. business or a union, and who do you want to manage your taxpayer dollars?

Governments are all the same in general, but some are better than others.  The voting taxpayer has the final say.
