Remember the 100 reasons to vote Conservative on October 19th, 2015

The anti-Harper Conservative Government spin is at its peak and is ugly, to say the least. Not only is it ugly, but most is either not true, exaggerated, or out of context. Mike Duffy, for example, has nothing to do with the Conservative record any more than the allegations against Mac Harb relate directly to the Liberals. In both cases, those men made individual decisions and now have to answer for them.

But, perhaps worst of all, is how nasty things are getting in the blogosphere. I am finding, for example, a lot of “anonymous” commenters leaving messages that are clearly suffering from Harper Derangement Syndrome (HDS) — comments that I do not publish but have to read and moderate.

To them, I say the following: Your emotional anger is not allowing you to look rationally at the consequences of your NOT voting for your Tory candidate. And, what might those consequences look like?

  • The HST/GST back up to 15%/7%.
  • Cancelled income tax cuts.
  • Cancelled income tax credits.
  • Cancelled family income splitting.
  • Cancelled senior income splitting.
  • Cancelled pension tax credit.
  • Added new carbon taxes.

Think I am exaggerating? Those items are just the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday, for example, at the Liberal announcement of their costing, their member said nothing was off the table. Nothing! And, as far as the NDP, just remember the recent Leap Manifesto and know the reality of the NDP ideology.

In other words, people need to look at what will happen to this country if they vote for the NDP or Trudeau Liberals — which are no longer the Liberals we knew from the 1970s through the 1990s. Both parties now have ideologies that have been discredited, be it socialism in the extreme or global warming/climate change theory. I mean, the essence of climate is that it is always changing and has been since animals and people have roamed our planet.

Vote well Canada. Don’t shoot yourself in your foot as there is no redo until another election is held. Remember as well that, no matter what the naysayers claim, there are at least 100 reasons to vote for your Conservative candidate.
