Minority govt double take

I must say I am always confused when i hear the supposedly people in the know pontificate that minority govts are good for the country?

Well I'm not sure what country these people are living in but if you come from a minority province in this confederation a minority national party govt is definitely not good for your province.

It goes back to the "It's the political system Stupid!" as long as a national party is in power either in a minority govt situation or a majority govt situation where a minority prov like NL doesn't have it's own representatives and the ones we do elect to the national party have to toe the national party line or get ostracized and banished to the nether regions of the HOC where democracy is nothing but a faint rumor and representing your riding and constituents is a battle of one against 307 or 70,000 against 32,000,000.00 million, or at the very least the 22 million who live in the two majority provinces and don't want the system to change because it works for them.

Now the only way a majority national party govt would work would be if the leader of the national party govt was a benevolent leader IE: we would still be expected to come with cap in hand and on our knees begging for anything more than the political system of per capita colonialism share of our own resource revenues back from the democratic discrimination perpetrated by all of the national parties against the minority provinces in favor of vote buying and winning power in the majority provinces with the over whelming share of resource revenues from the minority provinces.

The thing is people are a liability to govts and income tax collection and disbursement is nothing more than a zero sum gain the only real positive balance the national parties have to work with is resource revenues being more from a minority province on a per capita basis that they can use to benefit the majority at the expense of the minority.

nation parties under a minority govt can't even be benevolent because they are forever under threat of an election so they are forever keeping Paul happy while robbing peter. Paul will never complain and even spin it so as to look like minority govts are beneficial for the country well that might be so if you consider the country to only be Ontario and Quebec where 66% of the population lives.

The only way a minority govt is any good fro a minority prov like NL within this confederation is if we elect our own Nationalist party MP's from the NL-FIRST party then we can use our vote in a minority govt to horse trade and elicit what is good for NL-FIRST.
