Liberals are thinking BIG: big spending, big deficits, and big taxes.

Nobody starts a war without a plan. Iggy has a plan for this election. The key is in the word BIG. I was a bit surprised when he used the word himself. It's a baited hook. It's too easy.

Big Spenders
We know Liberals like to throw money around. Its their nature. They are like bourgeois Robin Hoods. They take from non-Liberals to give to Liberals. Dion got it backwards. He tried to sell the tax before the spending. This election, be prepared to be dazzled with blinding bright red promises.

Big Deficits
The big red promises will be funded in red ink. They believe that we've crossed a threshold in our collective consciousness by running a deficit as a country. Never mind that it was an economic crisis. A little deficit is the same as a big deficit in their eyes.

The lost tax revenue coupled with enormous expenditures like GMs $10 billion bailout, and infrastructure spending across the board is the source of our deficit and it was necessary. Conservatives spend in emergencies. Conservatives spend in times of war and crisis, which in 2008 and 2009 have experienced both. Conservatives basically spend to put out fires. The Police, the Military, the Health system and others all exist to put out their individual fires. This is partly why capital must be conserved from minimum tax revenue. We don't know how many or how large the fires of the future will be. We still don't know exactly how large our current fires are.

Liberals splurge as a matter of course. ADSCAM is a perfect example. They will spend again. An election win would signal to them that no cost is too high for crazy programs like turning EI into the new welfare. Liberal stimulus will be like watering a garden with a fire hose. Sure things will be soaked with cash, but nothing good will survive.

Whats the Big Idea?
Its a subtle and devious question. Its designed to draw us all in in anticipation. To this point, they've said nothing. Iggy's book is empty. They wait for us to call them out and say that they are Big spending, Big taxing, Big government Liberals. Once we've done all the work to label them thus, the election will be called and the great red hope will be revealed. You can bet that it will be Big, and it will have a Big price tag. They won't need us all to buy it, just enough to tip the scales for an NDP coalition. Both parties love nothing more than a good old cash bonfire.

Damn The Torpedoes! Count Iggy forces the National Debt Higher

Reason will not prevail. Just 10 months after the people spoke, we are going back to the polls. The Liberals can't accept defeat no matter how clear the message. They are bent on rolling the election dice until they get the only acceptable result.

Iggy will sully and shame our democracy at a cost of $350 million. Its chump change to a BIG spending Liberal. They believe the treasury is theirs after all.

How can they claim to be good financial managers? Their own debts are still huge, even after a summer of begging. Now that they have a little cash they just can't wait to spend it.

Any Liberal will tell you that Chretien's Liberals had years of balanced budgets. None of them will tell you that it was thanks to Brian Mulroney. The GST was specifically introduced to pay down the debt. In a classic Liberal lie in their infamous Red Book they promised to eliminate the GST and stole the vote. That's right; stole it. Politicians normally try to buy votes, but when you swindle voters with false promises, its theft.

Now that Conservatives did all the hard work, they are trying to steal the country again. Just 10 months ago, when Liberals were going to slam Canadians with a terrible new tax, the economy crashed. Economists around the world said it was another Great Depression. They still say that it was the worst recession since the Second World War. With Stephen Harper's leadership and Jim Flaherty's expertise, the Conservatives implemented the Economic Action Plan. With deft and swift moves, Conservatives cooperated with Barack Obama and the other G20 nations to avert a decade of disaster.

It worked marvelously. Instead of plunging into the abyss, Canada steered clear of the worst of the dangers. We saved GM. We pumped $50 billion into the economy and now finally we are out of recession.

Of course, Liberal style dictates that they want to be back in power before the lagging indicators like jobs start to show positive numbers. It might be too late for the Liberals as jobs numbers are already starting to look up. Its obvious that they want to claim the Conservative Recovery.

Thankfully Canadians are smarter than condescending Liberal politics. Iggy's election gamble, a hail marry play, will fail utterly. If we must force another $350 million out of our overdrawn budget for Iggy's reckless oppourtinism than Canadians should vote Conservatives into majority. No more wasteful, unnessessary, elections. Let the Conservatives finish what it started. Let Canada soar the way only Conservatives can fly it.

A New Coaltion?

There's a coalition possibility that nobody wants to talk about.

I'm the type of person who can watch my team lose and still think it was a good game if it was played well. I'd rather see a good game than any other kind. I want to see good Government.

The outcome of a game is pretty meaningless, while the outcome of an election means everything (we could have been hit with the Green Shaft!).

I'm sure that an election would end up with the same results more or less, except that everyone loses because we can't afford it, and we'll have to repeat it again and again and again.

Could we just skip all that? Could we find something useful for the Liberal party to do on our behalf?

Sadly I just don't think so. The Liberals are bent on one-up-manship. With the likes of Kinsella on the payroll, Liberals work tirelessly at sabotaging their partners and nothing else. The Liberal war machine itself prevents cooperation. The media eats it all up.

Lets stop with the war drums. Nobody wants an election, which is really: everybody wants cooperation. A coalition that represents most Canadians might be as impossible as Mideast peace or as long coming.

I'm calling for a truce Liberals. Fire Kinsella. Close the War room. Keep your new money and pay down your own debts. Lose your silly EI requests and behave reasonably for once. Do you Liberals wonder why we can't trust you to help out?
