It seems to me that a growing number of Canadians are finally waking up to the fiscal incompetence of the Harper cabal. It doesn't take the Economic education of Jim Stanford to understand that despite the CON-Artists continually self-congratulatory attitudes to their own supposed economic prowess, these guys really have no idea what they are doing. The ruthless pursuit of a bitumen-exporting economy already seems to be a doomed effort even from its own point of view now that the price of oil is edging downward and the Americans look to be energy self-sufficient in a few years. But from any normal point of view the CON-Artists economic strategies seem to be not only doomed to failure but downright idiotic. Not only did the Harper CON-Artists blow the economic surpluses they inherited with stupid GST and Corporate tax cuts, but they have taken Canada into a structural deficit situation (despite their supposed opposition to deficit spending at any time). Now to compound their basic economic stupidity, the Harper cabal is failing utterly to shape the Canadian economy for the future. Instead of shaping Canada's economy as an exporter of refined resources, alternative energy technologies, and education driven new ideas, the Harper-cons are looking to make Canada a banana republic that has no equality, no democracy, no generalized prosperity, and no real future.
Tell me again how these buffoons are able to trade on an image as economic competence and responsibility??
