I got another letter from the Federal Liberal Party of Canada today, extolling the virtues for their glorious leader and how much better they would be at running the country than the current crop of scoundrels (my words). The bottom of the letter includes a little form where you can contribute to their Victory fund. Here’s what I sent back…
I started getting these solicitations last election when I contributed to the campaign of blogger and anti-income-trust-tax champion Brent Fullard. But I figured if I was contributing to his campaign I should contribute to my local candidate as well. I guess the Liberals figured I was sucker because no matter how many times I send back these F-U responses they still beg me for more!
Now I have no love for the Conservative party either. I admit I voted for them a couple elections ago but not only was that a waste (my riding always votes Liberal) but a disappointment too! Most disappointing was the Cons Tax un-Fairness Plan, but they’ve been pretty consistently disappointed with all their decisions.
Remember: no one, not one single politician, has any influence over the economy and what direction it’s going in. All they can do is react. Any of them that claim they are responsible for swinging the economy in one direction or another is full of it! At most the governor of the Bank of Canada has some influence since he controls interest rates, but as we saw during the latest downturn even that can be meaningless if the banks don’t play along. And besides, he’s working within the constraints of his mandate and has to cooperate with other national banks around the world.
