Michael Ignatieff is a Moron
Some may wonder why I only pick on the Liberals and NDP. Aren't the Conservatives just as bad? They are, but anyone can plainly see that. The opposition, on the other hand, tend to get a free ride because they can promise the world, criticize the government and then claim that they can do a better job. I feel it's part of my duty to show Canadians that this is simply not true. Voting for the Grits and the Socialists to kick the Tories out isn't the lesser of the evils.
The very concept of government is evil. It doesn't matter who runs it.
Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff tried to debunk Wednesday findings from the Canadian manufacturing lobby on the positive impact corporate tax cuts would have on employment levels and business investment, saying tax relief does not represent a “magic” solution.
Of course tax relief doesn't help. Why would keeping more of your money help? Especially if you're running a large business. Who needs capital to reinvest? Iggy is right. We should actually raise corporate taxes. Those evil corporations! Providing goods and services Canadians use!
"Corporate tax cuts don't necessarily create jobs. They add to [corporate] bottom lines ... and don't necessarily create investment," he said. "What I don't believe is that corporate tax cuts is the magic job creator. I just don't believe the evidence supports that."
Okay, we are talking about State-sanctioned Corporations so I'll give him the first two lines. But what he said later, about tax cuts not being good for investment or creating jobs? – it's total bullshit. Imagine if all business owners (big or small) suddenly weren't sending half their income to the State. The increased capital to reinvest would equal job creation. What's Iggy's plan? Have the State provide employment?
“I will tell you what creates jobs and investment. It is investment in education and investing in maintaining the standard of living of middle-class Canadians.”
Translated: “I will tell you what create jobs and investment. Investment creates investment. It is stealing from people to put children in prisons and then stealing from the middle-class to ensure that they have a high standard of living. Don't ask me how that makes sense, it probably doesn't. I'm just going to say it and smile, then hopefully Canadians will reluctantly vote for me whenever there's an election.”
See? You just gotta read in between the lines. The State cannot invest money, and by doing so schools will only see increased costs. Plus, State education is more about indoctrination than anything. How many high-school civics classes are geared toward revealing the State as a monopoly on force? Not a single one. Students that aren't thinking critically about their government are less likely to overthrow it.
And what's all this hullabaloo about "investing" in the middle class? If Iggy really wants to reverse the downward trend on the standard of living for middle-class Canadians, his best option is to not only cut taxes but eliminate them completely.
The issue is always about taxes being too high or too low. It is never about taxes themselves. The concept of “tax” is so old that we've just come to accept it, prompting the phrase “death and taxes” as the only sure things in life. It's unfortunate because if any other institution required payment by stealing from the general population, it'd instantly be seen as criminal. Nobody would call those payments “taxes,” it'd been seen for what it actually is: theft.
Michael Ignatieff really is a moron. After the Tucson shooting, this is what he said:
“Nothing can be solved with a gun, any time, anywhere.”
Investing in the education of future generations, and "maintaining" our standard of living cannot be solved with a gun. Anytime, anywhere. So fuck off Ignatieff.
