It’s all your fault

OK, here’s a little political post to get things going…
Here in the province of Ontario, we just re-elected the Liberal Part to a strong majority. (71 seats out of 107 or so)

TheStar.com | Ontario Election | Historic win for Liberals

Back in 2003, the Premier Dalton McGuinty was elected to a majority government. He had promised not to raise taxes.

However…

…you guessed it. Almost immediately after his swearing in, he put in a health care tax. It was a blatant example of a broken promise.

You hear it all the time.

Voters complaining about how politicians are corrupt, will say anything to get elected, and will not be honest. We love to point fingers and make the jokes. However, I am becoming increasingly convinced that in this process it provides a convenient excuse to justify OUR OWN HYPOCRISY. Scripture tells us that the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. In pointing the finger at others
So to the Ontario voter I tell you this. Shame on you for your inconsistency and lack of personal responsibility. Shame on you for griping about dishonest politicians and then turning around and supporting them. YOU are the ones responsible for inconsistencies and hypocrisy. YOU are the ones responsible for politicians thinking they can get away with stuff. YOU are the reason why politicians keep on being inconsistent.
Hypocritical voters tend to elect hypocritical politicians.

Congratulations.

You got what you deserve.

(Note: I’m really not mad or bitter at all, I’m just making a point. 🙂
