From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: Why do we believe them?

Commentaries on the latest federal budget, both from the government and from the opposition, media and pundits are all about a fictional world of politics.

Government spokesmen tell us they are creating jobs. Governments are strangling innovation and entrepreneurship with laws, payroll taxes, red tape, regulations, rules, income taxes and demands for statistical information. The only jobs governments create are for bureaucrats.

The government tells us it is going to �kick-start� the economy. OK, start by getting out of the road. Throw all lobbyists down the stairs and ban them from Parliament Hill. They don�t represent us, our MPs do. Stop issuing masses of rules and regulations. Stop corporate welfare. Stop funding �green� anything. Stop supply management. Allow the free market to decide what talents and trades are needed and which businesses, industries and manufacturers can thrive and employ people. Lower taxes and watch the money flow in from start-ups and expansions.

Our government is going to spend $11.8 billion on affordable housing. It does not have the skill sets. The costs of housing are set by local municipalities. They decide what land can be sub-divided and costs of installing roads, sewers, water and utilities. The working poor can�t afford the cost of the lot created. The money winds up in subsidized housing. They will spend $11.8 billion without creating one single affordable house. It is window dressing for the gullible.

We are losing a transit subsidy that did not work. Some bureaucrat dreamed about saving the planet by packing us all into buses for our commute to work. We have dozens of programs aimed at herding us into government-designed pens. I want governments to get out of my life and let me make my own choices. I learn from my mistakes � governments make excuses and create new mistakes.

Governments don�t run the country. Canada was created for mutual defence of the provinces of Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec against a potential American invasion. The subjects listed in federal powers in our constitution are all things that people or provinces can�t provide or where having standards that vary from province to province don�t make sense such as weights and measures, money and criminal law to name a few.

Our federal government meddles in everything. Unfortunately for us, it can�t go broke when the meddling fails. It demands more revenue to cover up errors or spends us into deeper debt. The insanity must stop. All governments, federal, provincial and local exist to provide us with services we can�t provide for ourselves.

Governments do not know what is best for us. Federal and provincial chartered banks rip us off for billions every year because they can. People tired of it and formed credit unions which are taking a larger share of personal and small business banking every year. People are into the food, fuel and some welfare services through co-ops to fight retail giants and public agencies moribund in regulations.

The concept that governments have the power to regulate us and our lives must be buried in the deepest unused mine shaft we can find and sealed in with however much concrete it takes.

Our individual freedoms and rights depend on it.
