Voted by mail today.

Have never voted as progressive as I have done today.

Figure I won’t regret a Horgan government any more than I have a Campbell and Christy Clark government so why not?

Anyone else think a BC election during a time of complete incompetence from the Trump/Scheer/O’Toole/Kenney/Wilkinson/Ford right is nothing but political gravy for the NDP?

For me it's the extreme ideas held by some right wingers that make much less likely to vote conservative.  I know this group doesn't represent all conservatives and not even the majority, but their influence on the rhetoric of right wing politicians seems outsized, even if they probably wouldn't differ much from a left-wing government. 

Also the idea of "tax cuts" solving virtually every problem seems to be the standard for conservative politicians.  I don't live seeing how much I pay in taxes every year, but tax cuts aren't a solution to that.  Fewer perks for politicians/rich people and rich corporations is a better solution, in my opinion.
