Canada’s Socialist Bandwagon

Canada under the NDP

In Canada,¬†a country that prides itself on freedom and the enterprising spirit, its amazing to watch the socialist left¬†movement gain so much steam in Canada. Truckloads of leftist spewing their venomous condemnation at Steven Harper and the Conservatives. All but a few news media shouting for¬†¬†PM Harper’s head. So, whats this all about? Why is there such a hatred for the Conservative from the Socialist left? Many of the reasons seem to be to¬†push their own special interests¬†and promote their ideology. Unless you’re a member in these special interest groups there’s really¬†not much in it for you, the ordinary folk.

Since the Unions¬†are loosing members and the government is looking at new rules to allow members to opt out of the union , unions¬†are facing a massive loss of¬†¬†revenue¬†with reduced union dues being paid.¬†This is money they use to promote their own agendas¬†and donate to friendly¬†political parties that share their views. ¬†With their massive amounts of money collected from union dues, they have the means and power to change laws that benefit their special interest. It’s a¬†fight for power and money. The unions have a lot to lose. For years the pendulum has been swinging left to a point¬†where the governments and business can no longer afford their huge¬†benefit¬†and wage packages and still compete with other world countries. Its come to a point either we compete or end up like Greece and other European¬†countries. The thought of joining¬†the great european socialist dream with¬†all its perks¬†is dead and the Canadian unions are just starting to feel the pain. Socialism has¬†failed in Europe.

Like the Unions , environmentalism is big business. For years they have had the luxury¬†that few of us little folk¬†have, a¬†tax-free¬†environment for collecting donations since¬†most are considered charities. Even though it is well know they support political parties and promote their special projects, protesting governments and corporations they have been privy to the same status as a charity. This has now¬†been recognized and the rules are changing resulting in a lot less dollars in the environmentalist pocket. Bad news for the likes of Green Peace, a $200 million dollar a year business that collects millions from Canada and the Suzuki foundation. They are going to have to work a lot harder to get the same net income. They can no longer fleece¬†the taxpayers for their¬†special interest. The Conservative¬†government¬†is¬†the environmental¬†enemy. They watch the purse strings and affect the envious’¬†bottom line

The¬†left ideology¬†clearly views business as¬†the enemy. They feel that business should pay a¬†lot more than they are now¬†for social program. The people first the shareholders and risk takers¬†second. As noble as this may sound it just doesn’t work. But the battle for who controls the wealth is raging. As we have seen in Greece, the corporations have¬†been so overly taxed they can no longer function and compete in the world markets. They have been picked clean by its government always wanting more to promote their lavish promises to the¬†voters who just couldn’t¬†get enough free benefits. The parties over for Greece and is fast¬†coming to a close in Canada if we move back to the left and let them continue their spendthrift ways to control the public.

I expect all the left will be out in force in the next 2015 Federal election to regain their (our) money and power. The election will be an important turning point in the direction of Canada for a long time come. Our choice will be, a socialist NDP/Liberal government elite controlling us and our wealth or a traditional Conservative Canadian government and the freedoms that go with it.
