Get rid of your mortgage, loans, because interest rates set to rise

Get rid of your loans, guys and gals, because we are going into a high interest rate period. Very high. It will be the equivalent of going into the double digit interest rates we had in the 80s where many people threw their house keys at the bank and we had record numbers of ba

Dear Ms. Pupatello & Minister Duncan,

I am writing to convey my dismay at your approval of the new HST.

Very simply, any tax imposed by government on people is a detriment to any economy.

I do not know if you attended any economics classes, but one of the first things you’d learn in Macroeconomics is that taxes restrict spending and saving on all parties whether it be business or consumers.

In the past, we had a protective tariff that protected Canadian industries from slave labor countries like China. Now, our economy is dictated to by the World Trade Organization and many other “trade obligations” that force business to compete with slave labor.

How soon will it be that people’s living standards are significantly lowered? When their spending power has been diminished by a lowered wage.

I wish someone in provincial or federal government would have taken some economics classes to realize that Keynesian (1) economics has always failed throughout history, and Canada will be no different in its tax policies.

As far as I am concerned, I think you are being told what to say about the new HST without any critical thought, and I hope that you rescind your approval of the HST.

Canada already has close to an $800 billion dollar foreign external debt, and is set to rise to $1 trillion dollars in 6 years’ time.

Do you not have any morals or ethics, Ms. Pupatello? Increased taxation benefits no one but inefficient government when the money is better spent by the hands of ordinary Canadians. We do not need government to tell us how to spend our hard earned money.

I know that the administrative assistants you have reading these e-mails probably get a good laugh out of these ideas, but they are the truth and something you will not learn in University classrooms because all of the economics classes in partially federally-funded institutions are primarily based on tax-and-spend economics (Keynesianism).

I am very disappointed in the Liberal government you represent and have been telling everyone to petition against this new HST.

Sincerely,

Joe Anonymous

1. Keynesian ideas were criticized by Austrian economist and philosopher Friedrich Hayek. Hayek criticized Keynesian economic policies for what he called their fundamentally collectivist approach, arguing that such theories, no matter their presumptively utilitarian intentions, require centralized planning, which Hayek argued leads to totalitarian abuses. Keynes seems to have noted this concern, since, in the foreword to the German version of the The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money, he declared that “the theory of aggregated production, which is the point of ['The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money'], nevertheless can be much easier adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state [eines totalen Staates] than the theory of production and distribution of a given production put forth under conditions of free competition and a large degree of laissez-faire.”

How can YOU stop this harmonized sales tax?

How to send a fax to Dalton McGuinty to register your dismay of the incoming HST tax

I have a plan to send faxes, for free, to Dalton McGuinty’s office using a free fax service on the internet.

You can send this fax wherever you are around the world.

Step 1: Open a browser window to the following address: http://myfax.com/free/

Step 2: Fill out the following information into the required fields on that webpage:

On step (1) on that “myfax.com/free” webpage, it will ask you who you want to send the fax to. Here is the information:
Dalton McGuinty
Office of the Premier
Country: Canada or United States (doesn’t matter; same thing)
Fax number: 416 325 3745

Step 3: Fill out the “from” field on step (2) on that webpage. Preferably enter your personal information as I have done when I sent my fax.

Step 4: Fill out step (3) on that webpage by copying the following letter/text included on this email to a wordprocessor on your computer, save that file on the desktop, and then attaching it to step (3) on the webpage form. You can also send a personalized message on the right hand side. Preferably type in your address or email so they can send you a reply (they almost always do).
