As your business grows, you reach a point where you stop creating wealth, and jobs.

Political Musings : What Do I Want to Conserve?

Thinking about our values, and which ones do we want to conserve?

.

Personal musings at the end of a long election  campaign.

What do I want to conserve?

Our environment, because without an hospitable planet, there’s no viable economy!

Social diversity as much as biological, guaranteeing humanity’s long-term survival.

Sciences and education, because we will need all the available heads to solve issues born from the past, to face the challenges ahead. (No, there are no piranhas in the St. Lawrence River, but other exotic creepers such as Asian carp threaten these places.)

Public support for the artists, magazines and cultural organizations, for without creativity, without imagination, where are we going?

I need a cultural diffuser as CBC-RadioCanada because no eventual “official organ of the Party” will replace it  A mari usque ad mare. (As a Franco-Ontarian, the CBC is our own French language buoy! )

I am a staunch conservative for human dignity, honesty, and the liberty for women to choose their own path in life.

I want to get back to what is, for me, the original meaning of the word “religion“, reli-connected + ion-all, “to connect all”: building bridges between people, multiplying loaves of bread instead of fences.

Walking Wallets

Who are the tax payers

.

Those using the term “tax payers” are not only stating that people as walking
wallets, they exclude many amoins us who contribute positively to society. 

Among others:

– Those too poor to pay return taxes on their income (and the very poor, the homeless, etc.)

– Small-wage earners, paying a 13% tax on purchases (except food and some
goods). This tax rate is only slightly less than many large companies, nominally
taxed at 15%! And they pay hidden fees on many services (and pay more with
privatization!)

– Retired who have worked all their lives for trivial pensions, made by
companies that have played at the casino with?

– Children and students.

– Large companies and their CEOs who send their profits in tax havens!

And when I hear “hard-working”, I always ask myself: are some people soft-working? Certainly not my fantastic fans!
