Re: Voters have stark choice between philosophies: MPP, (May 22, 2014)
MPP Ted McMeekin said a mouthful when he uttered the words used in the May 22 headline.
We may opt for the choice of re-electing him and his Liberals to complete the job of bankrupting Ontario, or we may defiantly balk and adamantly refuse to be conned into increasing the abysmal loan payments of more than $800,000 per month while continuing to spend like manic billionaires.
There is no question that, if re-elected, the Liberals will keep spending our tax dollars, as well as train loads of borrowed money until some financial authority tells them, and taxpayers, that Ontario is broke.
Progressive Conservative candidate Donna Skelly hit the “time bomb” on the head, stating, “I would love to be a Liberal candidate or an NDP candidate and offer rainbows and unicorns to everybody in Ontario and everybody in my riding, but it’s not sustainable.”
If every Ontario household adopted McMeekin’s “stark” philosophy of spending wildly to fulfill every whim, with no thought for tomorrow, we would quickly end up as homeless people, paper cups in outstretched arms, forced to converge on Queen’s Park like an angry swarm of locusts.
