I came across an article in today’s news in the National Post that just got this old fart’s blood a’boiling. The headline read “‘Canada is broken,’ say majority of Canadians in poll taken in wake of rail blockades.” You see, Canada most certainly ain’t broken, in my opinion it’s just being horribly mismanaged. In fact, Canada’s posed to become a global superpower, but only if it grows up, mans up, and gets itself the heck out of its current mining colony mentality.
Canada Is An Emerging Nation Being Mass Depleted
Canada ain’t the ‘wild west’ no more, it’s an emerging nation that’s being horribly held back by leadership incapable of grasping the harm that it’s doing. Instead of protecting and preserving its non-renewable resources, Canada literally pays foreign corporations to come in and deplete them. Instead of investing heavily in green technologies, its government invests heavily in ‘dying’ industries; businesses producing poisons that are killing the world.
Government’s Only Business Is The Distribution Of Taxes Collected
Now as an old timer, I strongly feel government’s only business should be fairly and competently distributing the public funds it collects from taxpayers. So I’m disgusted that the government ‘subsidizes’ any business, large or small, because if a business isn’t viable, all the money in the world ain’t going to make it work. The only subsidies that should be given to anyone, should be given to the Canadian public, not to incredibly rich foreign corporations.
Indigenous People Are Economic Hostages
Tragically instead of achieving reconciliation, slime-ball politicians have turned the nation’s indigenous populations into fiscal hostages. This allows them to manipulate and take advantage of First Nations by threatening to turn off the financial taps if they don’t comply with government’s wishes, taps that the government despicably forces them to drink from. And as ‘wards’ of government deemed to be financially, culturally, and socially incompetent, government not only feels it has the ‘right’ to do whatever it wants on unceded indigenous land, with or without permission, it feels it has the ‘responsibility’ to do whatever it wants.
Canada Is A Nation In Transition
No sir, no ma’am, this old fart don’t believe for a moment that Canada’s broken, but it’s leadership sure as hell is. In fact, it’s broken all to hell. I believe Canada’s political scene has become the world’s ‘who’s who’ of corrupt politicians, a hodge-podge of traitors, liars, cheats, and thieves, all out to screw the very nation that was good enough to give them opportunity. So, in this old fart’s opinion there ain’t no doubt that a heap of repairs sure enough need to be made, but I reckon to fix things right, there’s a whole lot of them there repairs that will require the use of handcuffs.
