Province sees through liberal HST propaganda campaign

Letter to the editor

The HST will die a long drawn out death in 18 months, drawn out long enough for business to lift another $3 billion or so from taxpayer’s wallets.

Despite a huge propaganda campaign, bribery with HST rebate cheques and promises to lower the HST rate in years to come the taxpayer proved intelligent enough to see past the Liberals smoke and mirrors show.

In what other occupation but government could you cheat your employer out of $6 billion plus, disrespect your employer by saying they weren’t bright enough to understand what was good for them and continue your job as usual. If there were any justice the Liberal government would immediately step down, or at the very least call an election.

Instead its business as usual. Gordon Campbell has gone on to his reward, though High Commissioner to Britain is unlikely to be the final one and every Liberal MLA, despite unanimously voting to ambush the electorate with the HST, will continue to collect their generous salaries.

One definition of stupidity is “repeating the same action over and over and expecting different results”. Lets hope the electorate remembers this in the next election and votes for anyone but the Liberals.
