I had hopes that the sound defeat of the liberals this last fall would result in a NEW liberal renewal so that there might be two responsible parties as a choice for Canadians. When the snowflake coup was put to rest and Mr. Ignatieff came to be appointed leader, I had new hopes.
Unfortunately after hearing his speech about the budget, it is the same old line which is full of lies and half-truths. The Conservatives have created a Canadian government with a reputation for wisdom which the G8 and Gx members look to for a model of financial stability. They have also in part returned some of the GST to we ordinary senior citizens to make our lives a bit better in combination with tax cuts which benefit all of us. These are real obvious tangible improvements from the OLD LIBERAL scandal-ridden regime. We are tired of big plans which take from fixed-income seniors and give to those who can still earn an income. We are tired of taxes in one form or another being taken without our consent or approval for plans which benefit not the low-income families but those can actually afford to have two cars and two incomes.
I had hoped that instead of politico-speak, we might have honesty and integrity for a change from the Liberal Party. I see that is not to be.
As a senior citizen who knows something about finances, I know the conservatives have made vast improvements and are about to make more. An honest reply would have been to say something like "We cannot agree with all of the measures that Mr. Harper's government has suggested in this budget but we agree that these measures will make a difference to Canada and Canadians. We would like to have seen....."
That would have been an honest statement. It appears that honesty still seems too far a grasp for the Liberal Party of Canada to grasp.
As two senior citizens, my wife and I will spend all of the rest of our lives to ensure that no deceitful, dishonest, politico-speaking party which lacks integrity ever comes to power again.
Shame on you! Get real. Get honest!
