NDP rhetoric gives them away

Dear editor,

Is there an attempt at a suggestive message in the NDP campaign slogan “change for the better?”

Dear editor,

Do they think the voters will come to believe that the NDP has changed for the better? If that is their hope it is not working on this voter. They are the same old NDP.

They may have removed the term socialist from their party constitution but they have not removed socialism from their policies or socialists from their membership. They are still the party of big government with its incumbent taxation and over- regulation of the economy.

What Grace McCarthy said of Dave Barrett (he may dress in a business suit and address business leaders but underneath he is still wearing red underwear) also applies to Adrian Dix.

NDP rhetoric gives them away. Whenever they attack tax reductions for business or individuals, they refer to it as if government is giving money to them, which indicates to me that the NDP assumes all money belongs to government to begin with and that we should be grateful for what little they allow us to keep.

They truly believe that government knows better how to spend our money than we do and that attitude only leads to economic ruin.

Delbert Doll,

Courtenay
