F-off.
Right now it seems like everyone has a major flaw in one way or another.

Liberals - Debt

Conservatives - Robots/Puppets

NDP - Dix's past

Green - Would put BC in even more debt

So headlines across the province tomorrow:

"Dix support swelling"
"Swell Dix shows well"
"Dix thinks he's too big for his own britches"
"Clark can't get on top of Dix"

Indeed. The one that bit you last time or the one that ate your leg the time before.

Thus my abstinence.

Classically, NDP has tend to spend more on government than Liberals, but barely. It's a "devil you know" thing right now.

You could add to NDP "their whole party's past" and to the Liberals "flat out lied"

The NDP also tends to try to do things with a focus on "in BC" which sometimes amounts to throwing money down the drain.

It's just too bad the Greens aren't a viable party. They have some decent platform points, but they just don't have the numbers.

Clark's just getting hit by all sides. It's a like political gang-****. Even Jennifer took a shot at her with the Moody debacle.

Christy Clark is getting visibly upset. She's had a poor night.

The Greens don't pander though, thus they will never win.

Pretty much.

I don't trust anything they are saying for a second, but I'm here to see who performs, who doesn't, and who doesn't have a great grasp on the economy, which Clark said (I actually agree) that is the most important topic right now.

Liberals are going to get thumped.

Trust me I know a lot of high up business people who were really upset with the Liberals last few years on blatant lies.

The economy is always the most important topic.

Yeah.

of course the first audience question regards marijuana.

NDP supports it to appeal to younger voters.

Everyone else seems out.

Yeah, this is the problem I have with them. I could care less about the falsified document 15 years ago. I'm sure Clark's done as bad if not worse. The spending is what scares me.

Spend more on social programs I think you mean, unless you were willingly trying to obfuscate where the spending occurred.

Sounds like a republican saying they don't want any more 'govt spending'.

Democracy in this country has turned to picking the least terrible candidate rather then the best. This debate was more about picking out flaws with the other sides plan then demonstrating why yours works. A nest full of shrieking pteradactyls came to my mind....

Except the Liberals have also been spending way more than they should + not living up to their promises or budgets.
