Conservative voters keep crying for more police and they don't come cheap. Have to raise the money somehow. You want a law and order state, be prepared to pay the price.

Meanwhile, the perception remains, crime is out of control.

Anyone who believes the NDP are socialists, or funnier yet, communists, needs to give their head a shake. This is a right-of-centre government.

NDP Is using Conservative type move to raise money because the province is so in debt and can't keep borrowing.

14 years at the helm, and:
No reduction in inequality.
Increasing poverty.
Increasing regressive taxation.
This is socialism? Sure....this is a Blairite right-of-centre government wearing a progressive mask.
NDP and PCs....Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dummer.

Samson. Perhaps you should read some newspapers and see how the Conservatives would do things without an increase to the PST.

You don't seem to know the difference between a Conservative and a Socialist, so I'll give you a hint...

Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples' money.(Thatcher)

Conservatives believe that you should keep your own money.(me)

JTF, you are delusional if you think a Conservative government would mean real change in Manitoba. Your taxes would not decline, and if they did you'd pay more in user fees to offset any gain...as for lowering the PST, the Conservatives "say" they would do so in the first term, but the Liberals ran in '93 on a platform of abolishing the GST. Hmmm....still paying GST. Fact is the parties are essentially the same, save for some different policies on a couple of wedge issues.

You get to choose between Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dummer.

Maybe you don't remember when Fillpockets was premier, but under that Conservative government, Manitoba was an economic basket case. Remember Filmon Fridays?
Manitoba survives thanks to equalization payments, which provide 35% of the budget. Manitoba is the poorest province west of Quebec. It is poorer than Minnesota despite having more natural resources. The province has been poorly managed for decades. Look at Lake Winnipeg as just one example.

You need to do a little research yourself on what conservatism and socialism are. Did you know that the top marginal tax rate was over 90% under the "conservative" Eisenhower administration? Political ideologies can not be summarized with silly phrases. The Conservative Party is not at all conservative in the classic sense of the term. Harper and Pallister are more at home with the old Whigs than they would be with Disraeli or MacDonald.

As for Mrs. Thatcher, her policies and those of the essentially Thatcherite Blair government wrecked the UK economy. Good track record. The Falklands was her only real achievement.

You are drunk pretty much everyday. You are retired and sit in a wheelchair on welfare. You sit in sh*t stained underwear eating microwavable burritos from 7/11. Chad USA, you're an old diddler. You creepy old pasty stinky man.

Typical of people like you, attack the writer, be fact shy and offer nothing informative or considered.

You know nothing about politics besides what you hear from Charles Adler. A cheerleader, that's all. Rah! Rah, Rah!
