And as a "Conservative" you gladly voted for NDP and/or are happy about this result?

Do you guys all think we are dumb?

If that is an IQ test you guys totally failed. No idea on how business works, no idea on incentives (see Charlie Munger), no idea on economics.

Other than propaganda, I read nothing intelligent here from out loud, truly pro-socialists bunch.

Then they call themselves investors...

That's not the only reason they won.  The NDP has essentially moved into the center-left position that was previously occupied by the Liberals.  Unlike Trump, they've actually achieved alot of their election promises.

And while I whole-heartedly disagree with their battle against private medicine, they've at least backed up their fight for Universal healthcare with improved resources, hospitals, clinics and equipment in B.C.  In other words, they haven't made empty promises like Trump or many other politicians including Trudeau.

Cheers!

Cardboard, Just to clarify

Where did i say i voted for the NDP?
Where did i say i thought it was a good thing they won the election?

I understand this might be hard to understand, but simply because i was talking about the NDP does not mean i voted for them or approve of their policies.

Now i know i did not use the words ‘disaster’, ‘worst ever’, ‘destroy the country’, ‘socialist’ or ‘’communist’ in my post. Perhaps this was my error.

"Do you guys all think we are dumb?"

Since several posters here have tried to explain to you time after time that they are small "c" and some large "c" conservatives, and yet you continue to insist on calling them "lefties", "liberals", etc because they are not far right wing extremist nut cases ... well, judge yourself accordingly.

Whether one is liberal or conservative, depends on what policies you support. Despite what people claim, thats all there is to it. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and tells you it s a pterodactyl, its still a duck.

Ah, but everything is not black and white and it also depends on your perspective.

The same can be said for penguins. I guess nowadays anyone can really claim to be and to identify, with anything.

Boy oh boy - if Trump is going to lose in a landslide, someone needs to explain to me the huge rallies and crowds he attracts.
The enthusiasm is off the charts.

Meanwhile, loser Biden and Lefty Kamala can't fill a room - when he actually comes out of his basement, that is...

But I don't watch CNN or MSNBC too much - so I still say Trump wins big.

It's going to be interesting that's for sure!

I admire your conviction, but just dont see it. The polls of course should not be taken seriously, theyre proven frauds with obvious agendas, but a Trump victory just doesnt seem to be in the cards.

That said, if you're feeling lucky, the money line on Trump is currently +130, and frankly, I give the bookies more credibility than the pollsters because unlike the scum ball journalists, they have skin in the game.

And that's the truth!
