Let's get this HST vote over with

I think that by now we should be well prepared to cast our vote in the HST referendum.

We have heard all the truths, all the lies, all the exaggerations. We have heard all the pie-in-the-sky promises (with  no assurance of fulfilment) and gasped at the brazen political spin and obfuscation. 

We now know that in the legislature we are looked-upon as a bunch of dumdums who dunt no nuthin about nuthin.

I was discussing the matter recently with a strong supporter of the HST so here is my final comment before consigning my fistful of envelopes to the care of Canada Post.

Supporter:  Two wrongs don’t make a right.

Me : Voting for a wrong does not make it right.

Get on it, everyone! Get those votes in and settle this nonsense once and for all.
