Smoke and Mirrors

I can't sit idly by and watch the reports roll in that Deficit Jim is about to cancel public funding for Political Parties. Last time I checked, minority governments were run by consensus, not by partisan hackery.

This government is showing us once again why they are unfit to govern, putting partisanship over the greater good of Canadians. Instead of finding some viable cuts, the Conservatives show contempt for our democratic institutions and laws. They show their lack of serious intent when it comes to curb spending and not go into deficit. This is a typical move designed to hide the real issue of fiscal incompatence and further make the government more divided and partisan.

The main crux of the issue is this, the government is in this situation not because of the economy, but because of their "teenage credit card holder" spending policies. Now they are trying to cover their tracks and politicize their own spending problems by messing around with political spending which was brought into strengthen democracy.

This post is short and sweet,as I am at the office.

First of all, countries around the world are facing financial difficulties so nothing our government would have or could have done would affect our situation.

Secondly, Liberals are showing their true colors. Complain about spending but don't cut our spending. No different than Al Gore or David Suzuki flying around the country telling everybody to cut back while they live high off the hog and refuse to change the way they live.
