Take a look at the main page over at www.liberal.ca (as of Jan. 16, 2006). This is not from a mildly hostile newspaper.
This is from the Liberals' own website. This is not helping the Liberal cause.
Ladies, and gentlemen, I give you Glum and Glummer.
And, from deep within the Liberal mind comes this quote (concerning the Tory capital gains plan):
“Any competent financial planner can find half a dozen ways to ensure you never pay. This promise comes close to a de facto elimination of the capital gains tax for individuals,” he said.
Oh, sure, if you're a Liberal financial planner. This kind of sleight-of-hand done on a daily basis, no doubt. For the rest of us, it's tax deferred only until the money is not-reinvested.
This will enable Canadians to increase their wealth -- and we simply cannot have that. The Liberals love to get their hands on as much as they can, as soon as they can, as often as they can, for as long as they can, forcing as many as they can into dependence on the public trough.
A country consisting of financially strong and free Canadians is inconsistent with liberal values. And a country that catches an entrepreneurial spirit, and glimpses that it can do financially well without the government doing it all for them, a liberal's worst nightmare.
The politics of class envy and greed (for others' money) are on display for all to see.
