Flip for flop


I see it coming! The island flip flop from liberal to PC. When will voters learn? Voting for either of these two party’s just prolongs the agony. We have Dennis King and the PCs promising to do things differently! Where have we heard that before? Remember MacLauchlan in 2015, ” I will do politics differently” then picked up where Ghiz left off. If voters elect the PCs all that will change will be the rewarding of patronage and contracts. We have to understand if Dennis King is elected, he will not be running the province, the backroom will. It was the backroom boys who chose King in the first place. It’s ironic that both the liberal and PC backrooms are run by lawyers from the same law firms. Where do you think all their party funds come from? From corporations, island contractors and businesses like the Murphy Group. Who gets all the contracts, forgivable loans and favours, the same groups that support these two party’s. Please give some very serious thought before you vote in this election, take a risk, be daring, throw caution to the wind, be wild, be different and vote differently. Try something new, do not be taken in by the same old empty promises and empty words. You will end up paying the salary of the person you elect, a very hefty salary and pension that most of us will never see. So when you hire the person, first be sure he/she will do what you are paying them to do. I’m voting Green because I truly believe they will do things differently. The Greens do not accept donations from corporations or contractors. They raise their modest funds through private citizens donations, and they are only beholding to us the voters. That is the big difference between liberals, PCs and the Green Party. Take a look at how the vote on election reform has been set up! It was certainly not done fairly or for the PR side to win, the vote is heavily stacked against us. Remember the 2016 plebiscite, a majority voted for MMP but MacLauchlan refused to recognize the will of the people. You may say, I don’t care I’m voting no anyway. That might be okay for now, but what happens when you want something and the government prevents it. A government that exists solely to stay in power is not good for the people or good for the province. Ask yourself this,  if on PEI you believe we live in a democracy? Really folks, what more needs to be said, surely you can see the two old party’s will stop at nothing to retain their power.      God Bless and keep reading
