Local submitter questions motives, costs and payers of latest federal election

Another federal election, eh! And another litany of promises from every political party that will, if they are kept, have we peons and peasants saddled with more debt which will then be added to the $600 billion – more or less, federal debt that we taxpayers have been burdened with from poor promises.

Dear Editor;

Another federal election, eh! And another litany of promises from every political party that will, if they are kept, have we peons and peasants saddled with more debt which will then be added to the $600 billion – more or less, federal debt that we taxpayers have been burdened with from poor promises.

Freedom and security are the most sacred social attributes any government can provide for its people. How then can more debts and taxes promised by those we elect, safeguard the hopes and dreams that many Canadians have fought and died for?

According to those learned people in our political race for the right to be the next government in power, the foolhardy race to increase more ignoramous bureaucratic government agencies, can mean only more taxes. We have no vote for a ‘political party’ that has, or will control squandering and debt in their policy or promises.

Elections do sponsor discussions and debate regarding democracy and we should be informed that it is democracy that produces and encourages elections, but elections do not necessarily produce or make a democracy.

Aright and privilege to speak and print unpleasant facts or ideas for debate or dispute is the principle foundation that democracy was established on. Yet those in power reluctantly admit any responsibility for their stupid, costly blunders, as they find it disturbing for any democratic actions from its serfs, repugnant.

Democracy has more rules and laws than any other system of government as its bungling bureaucracy keeps its taxpaying citizens in a police-state system in order to control its insalubrious draconian rules of waste and squander.

One example is why are we taxpayers providing red carpet social benefits to thousands of illegal immigrants – many of whom are in our prisons, and no real effort to send them back to where they came from? And in Canada is classified as a ‘democratic nation’, why are hundreds of books banned from Canadian bookstores?

Ignorance is bliss and is some knowledge not approved by Ottawa a threat to us?

Every state which dwarfs its people in order that they may be more docile instruments in its hands – even if it were for real beneficial purposes, will eventually find that with subdued, small men, no great things can really be accomplished.

China’s great leap forward is a prime example where a government finally abandoned its ‘gulag’ grip on its people and has, in a few short years, become one of the world’s leading countries in providing goods and services to its people.

In retrospect, we Canadian taxpayers should be very thankful we do not have to pass a civil service exam to work for the government. It’s too bad as we could all fail the exam and become free citizens in our own country.

We Canadians should also be thankful that many of our fellow citizens are seeking to be elected as our representatives in Ottawa and in their quest to do so, will try to prove they have a lot of wit. After listening to the various party leaders, I suggest they are halfway there.

Our nation’s problem could be that as a society or a people who losses its approval of God only to seek the approval of man, it should search for more transparent solutions to our manmade problems.
