How to choose your political party in Alberta

Dear editor,

I saw this on Facebook and thought I would share it with you and it might help you to decide which party to vote for in the next election:

Socialist: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

Liberal: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty, so you vote people into office that tax your cow, forcing you to sell one to pay the tax. The people you voted for then use your tax money to buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You then feel righteous.

Communist: You have two cows. The government seizes both cows and provides you with one cup of milk per day.

Conservative: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull and build a herd of cows.

The NDP fall into a category somewhere between socialist and communist. The PC party is more liberal than conservative and the Wildrose are the only party that is truly conservative. The rest of the parties are trying to ride down the middle somewhere.

Which party do you thinks makes the most sense?

Jim Cook, Westerose
