As a voter in British Columbia, I am tired of voting for a party that I don't like simply because the alternative is the NDP. After the carbon tax I was disgusted and wanted to change my vote but was only offered 2 alternatives on my ballot, NDP and Green. The HST was just the nail in the coffin. This province has a significant amount of right wing voters who vote BC Liberal because they are afraid of the NDP, and with good reason. If you listened to talk radio after the 2009 election (sorry I stopped listening to Christy's show after her first week), many callers were calling it the "none of the above" election. They weren't voting for the Liberals, they were voting against the NDP.
I'm sorry, but I don't want to do that anymore. BC needs its own Wildrose, and really the only viable option is the BC Conservative Party. Unless someone is willing to resurrect Social Credit, we need to start supporting and promoting the BC Conservatives. If that means one term of the NDP, so be it, at this point I'm willing to accept short term pain for long term gain. I'm done with the BC Liberal Party. So all you people saying "don't vote BC Conservative because you will elect the NDP", I will quote the wise philosopher The Rock who said "know your role and shut your mouth." I voted Liberal and I got a carbon tax and the HST. I'm not voting for that party again.
