Yes the economy is so unorginal. So much in fact that as it contines to slowly or not so slowly tank around us that it's doubtful that it just might be one of the top issues on people's minds in the next election.
Think harder. I'm ridiculing the empty nonsense about "focussing on the economy", which every self-serving politician of every stripe is screaming about right now as if they have discovered a new planet.
What in heaven's name are you, Fidel, and everyone else here suggesting that the ONDP SAY and DO about the economy?
Do you recall how the ONDP responded to the last economic crisis when it was in government? It betrayed its entire constituency, accomplished nothing, and made itself a pariah for the next 13 years (and counting).
Is there some room for original thought here? Some actual discussion amongst progressives? If the so-called "ECONOMY" is so all-fired important that it displaces basic democratic fundamentals (like education and its future), what exactly (if anything) do you have to say about it?
In short, there is still room for the ONDP to make 4th or 5th place. See how well it's done in 13 years? What exactly is going to change that?
By the way, thanks again for reminding me that people are concerned about the economy.
