A Liberal is merely a Conservative with a red tie. Same policies, same history, same sense of entitilement, same allegience to big business and the rich, same cast of characters, same sleezy backroom deals. We've watched the Liberals and the Tories swap seats in Parliament for 150 years, and the result has been a constant downhill spiral in what our country is supposed to be about. Bad to worse, to bad, to worse. Over and over again. It's time to try something different.
Here is the Federal Liberal government past performance:1. EH-101 HELICOPTER CANCELLATION FIASCO - Upon taking power in 1993, the Liberals killed a contract to replace the aging Sea King military helicopters. Few remember the cancellation cost taxpayers a $500 million penalty.2. HEALTH CARE: While the Liberals portray themselves as the guardians of our national health care system, it was Martin's $25 billion cuts to health care funding when he was finance minister in the early 1990s that led to the crises in the health care system today.3. TAINTED BLOOD SCANDAL: Millions of dollars in federal funding was not transferred to victims; therefore many victims had died.4. RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL ABUSE CLAIMS: Of the $200 mil. spent on claims administration; only $38 million went to the victims. (sad)5. PENSION FUNDS LOST: Military veteran's and widow's of veterans lost their pension funds to the Liberal govt..6. EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE FUND SCANDAL: $44 billion in excess contributions were placed in a Reserve Fund which was contrary to the federal government's own guidelines.7. LAX IMMIGRATION STANDARDS: The feds. couldn't find thousands of failed refugee claimants, some had links to terrorism and organized crime .8. TRANSPORTATION FUNDS LOST: Under the Liberals, our national air and rail carriers lived from one crisis to crisis.9. BUYING ADVICE: Liberals spent $6.5 billion annually on outside consultants - to buy "advice" which was largely available from within the public service10. 2000 FUEL REBATE: A botched $1.4 billion heating fuel rebate program doled out cash to the wrong Canadians. Some rebates went to dead people, some to prisoners and students who were living at home and didn't even pay heating bills.11. 2000 HRDC: Calling accounting problems "widespread and serious," the auditor general revealed in 2000 that $1 billion was mismanaged in job creation grants handled by Human Resources Development Canada, under minister Jane Stewart.12. 2002 CHALLENGER JETS: The Liberal government spent $101 million on luxury Challenger jets deemed unnecessary by officials at the Department of National Defense.13. 1995-2005 GUN REGISTRY: Originally forecast to cost $2 million in 1995, the Auditor General predicted in 2003 that actual costs would escalate to $1 billion by 2004-2005. Calculations now suggest the costs had actually ballooned to $2 billion for a registry that was ridiculous and did not and would never work.14. 2003 RADWANSKI AFFAIR: Inadequate oversight and spending controls allowed former privacy commissioner George Radwanski to rack up thousands of tax dollars in lavish lunches and luxury travel.15. 2004 SPONSORSHIP: The auditor general revealed that up to $100 million of the $250 million federal sponsorship program went to Liberal-friendly advertising firms for little or no work. A new figure of $355 million is from the forensic accounting firm, Kroll Lindquist Avey.16. "GREAT BUMWAD FIASCO": The Liberal gov't bought the Weston Inc. owned toilette paper plant, an eyesore property across from the Parliament Bldgs for $36 million. It was to be the a site of a future park . The Liberal govt. then leased it back to the original owner for 25 years.
Here is more of the Federal Liberal government past performance:17. BLUENOSE GRANT: A $2.3 million Bluenose grant was allocated by the Liberals but $1.9 million has been siphoned off by an ad agency.18. FAILURE TO COLLECT GST: A seven year failure of the Liberal govt. to collect GST resulted in fraud of over $1 billion lost through loop-holes.19. MEDICAL MARIJUANA: Ottawa's $5.5 million contract with Prairie Plant Systems to produce "medical marijuana" for registered users was a bust. The active ingredient was so low that the "weak" pot had few therapeutic benefits and little monetary value, yet cost tax payers over $15,000 per ounce to produce.20. "PRIVATE" GOVERNMENT FOUNDATIONS: The Liberal govt. stashed untold billions in "private" gov't foundations which were hidden from public scrutiny and beyond the reach of the Auditor General and Privacy Commissioner.21. CSL, CANADIAN STEAMSHIP LINES: Paul Martin circumvented Canadian health, labor and safety standards by re-flagging ships from his former company CSL. Martin fired the Canadian crews on his CSL ships and replaced them with cheap foreign labor. He registered his assets off-shore in Barbados to avoid paying his fair share of Canadian taxes. Also there was $161 million in federal development money paid to CSL which was "unknown" to Paul Martin.
