Politicaly Correct

In this world that we live in, it is expected that we be Politically Correct. I am proud to say that have never been Politically Correct. It seems to me that nothing associated with thee word politics has ever been correct. So why do we, as a society, buy into this? Maybe this will never be known. Never belive what the politicians tell you, all of the time. Why are politicains PC. Id rather have people that can think for themselves In office, and not be bound by what people think of them. In my opinion.being PC is a form of Censureship of which i will not take part in. It also shows a sign of weakness. Just think about what Ive written. Thanks . John

Living in a John Kerry World, CANADA

Fraser calculates its Tax Freedom Day by taking into account all the taxes we pay, including « income taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, profit taxes, health security and employment taxes, import duties, sin taxes, natural resource fees, fuel taxes, hospital taxes, amusement taxes and a host of other levies too numerous to mention ». It then generates a series of estimates based upon three different kinds of taxpayer: families and unattached individuals, families with two or more individuals and families of four (two parents and two children under the age of 18).

The average cash income for the second, or middle, group in Quebec was 54,210 $ with total taxes amounting to 27,517 $, for a total tax rate of 50.7%. The split was roughly 48% federal, 45% provincial with the remainder being extorted by municipalities. This is made all the more interesting when one discovers that Quebec receives transfers from the federal government equal to 15% of its provincial revenue. Not something that the oleaginous Finance Minister dares to mention.

Comparing peaches with oranges

It is difficult to compare Quebec to other provinces because their average cash incomes are, in general, higher. Where they are lower, such as in Nova Scotia, the comparable income is 52,486 $, the tax rate 42.3% and Tax Freedom Day is June 5th. Alberta, which has an average cash income for that group of 65,897 $ and a tax rate of 44.5% celebrated it’s Tax Freedom Day on June 13th. Whether this is the beginning of an overall downward trend or not is hard to say since Saskatchewan’s Tax Freedom day actually went from June 22th to July 2nd due to an unusual event in 1997.

The high rates of tax at both federal and provincial levels are driving out the more mobile and better educated citizens. Even for an ordinary wage earner there are nine better places to live than Quebec, at least from a tax point of view. If you are a high income earner, then Alberta with its top rate of 46% may suddenly seem appealing. Lotus land has the highest combined federal-provincial top marginal tax rate, a staggering 54%. Perhaps not surprising for a province whose left-wing NDP government is ruining the provincial economy and driving investors and businesses eastward to Alberta. In all fairness to them though, it should be admitted that within three years their top marginal tax rate is supposed to fall from the present 53% to 49.9%.

Analysis of the economics of imposing high marginal tax rates on people shows that for each extra dollar of tax revenue it receives, BC loses 65 $ in economic activity. In Quebec, this is estimated to be over 70 $. It is often surprising to see how little politicians, especially those with an egalitarian bent, seem to understand such simple facts. People reduce their efforts to earn more if it will be taxed at higher rates and begin to look for ways to receive their compensation in untaxable forms. People spend their energies on finding ways to evade taxes, they look for tax shelters, they put off the sale of appreciated assets and so on. Bernard Landry seems to understand this latter concept quite well since he is always showing us TV clips of people working under tables. He seems to think that hiring more tax inspectors and encouraging snitches is the answer to improving the moral climate. Reducing taxes doesn’t seem to occur to him as a possible starter for the economic motor. One could well ask why this province has such high unemployment rates and so little serious investment. Assuming that you were a simple investor living outside this country and you have an idea and a few millions to invest, would you bring it to Quebec or take it to Alberta?

Equality vs. Equity

The egalitarian philosophy which seems to dominate the minds of most of our politicians impels them to indulge in rhetoric about tax equity, by which they mean that the more you earn the higher the rate of tax you should pay in order to be equitable. That this may cause you to leave for another jurisdiction, that higher rates may not be producing greater revenues or that such actions may even impose heavy costs on society is rarely if ever considered.

The top marginal rates in other countries are: 40% in the UK, 33% in New Zealand and even in that preview of socialist heaven, Sweden, they have brought their top rates down to 51% on earnings and 30% on capital incomes. Our neighbours to the south have a top marginal tax rate of 39.6% on taxable incomes of 264,000 $ (approximately 400,000 $ Can.). Canada’s top rate starts at almost one seventh of that amount, nearly 60,000 $. Is it so very surprising that people leave this province and this country?

Hegel remarked in his Philosophy of History, « What experience and history teach is this, that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it. » Quite so.

Thanks Agian John P.S. This is not my article just thought it was great info for all who believe tax cuts are only for the "RICH PEOPLE"

Do Terrorist deserve the fair treatment

In my opinion, i had no problem with the photos from Abu Grab. Do these animals really deserve to be treated the same way you or i would be treated. No. Thats it. Americans dont send there children into crowded market places with bombs strapped to them and these animals do. I praise these troops for doing what they did and for trying to extact infomation out of these misrable beasts. Micheal Moore is a poor excuse for jabba the hut. Just because he is a profesional film maker, He asumes that he is also an expert on foriegn policy. Well Mike, when u assume u make an ass out of u and me. Be advised when voting this year that the communist party of the USA has endorsed John Kerry. I wander why that is? heh heh. It seems there web site and Mr. Moore have similar articles. But dont belive me, check it out for yourself at and Two great sites for the Commie Red in all of us. John
