Call it like it is

I have a better name for the BC Liberals….Neoconservatives! Sure, changing the party name seems smart, thinking they’re going to get reelected again. Idiots.

They are selfish frauds.

It's been proven, their brand of economics doesn't work.
Yes, we need people with capital to invest in production and the jobs that go along with that, and now and then you will get somebody like Henry Ford or Elon Musk who produces something that you didn't even know you wanted. But generally, employers they will only create more jobs if there is sufficient demand for their products.

Most large employers will do everything they can to not hire more people. They will demand higher productivity or cut wages to keep their expenses as low as they possibly can. When they finally do take on extra staff at decent wages, they do so grudgingly.

And the only thing that forces their hand is if they think there are enough people out there with enough money to buy the extra products that would be made. And the rich pretty much already buy everything they need or want. If they have more money in their pockets, they don't spend it on more stuff - they put it in the bank (often in offshore tax havens) or buy stocks and shares in the hope of turning it into even more money - which they still don't use to buy more stuff. And if they do buy stuff, it's often foreign anyway. Generally, the richer you are, the greater the proportion of your spending goes on imports.

So cutting taxes for the rich doesn't really do anything for job creation. It mostly just gives the rich more wealth. If you instead cut taxes for the poor, they rush out and buy more stuff. This forces employers to employ more people, who can themselves buy more stuff. This also reduces the number of poor and unemployed people overall.

And this also acts as a 'trickle up', because the employers are making more profits. The ordinary man and woman on the street are the real drivers of the economy. Give them the means to spend more, and it benefits everybody.

The people who vote for them, are brainwashed or selfish sociopaths.

It might look like a tactic, but this name correction is long overdue regardless. They are the former Socreds, conservative all the way and always were. Nothing to do with the federal Liberals.
