Paradise Papers: Offshore "schemes may have cost the nation millions of dollars in taxes"

Paradise Papers: Chief Exec's buddy involved in offshore "schemes (that) may have cost the nation millions of dollars in taxes"

At last, we have the goods on the person closest to the Chief Executive. He is not only a key aide, he is a close friend and was central to his rise to power.

Gotcha ...

Justin Trudeau.

  1. Politics in Canada, federal and provincial:

    Elect Liberals, who proceed to tax the hell out of everyone and everything and then spread the money as wide as possible, just enough in the pockets to get the vote.

    This continues for a few terms until everyone is sick of all this spending: "Why are we funding ___? I'm sick of all these ___!"

    Elect Conservatives, who proceed to focus on cutting government spending, until the economy starts to recover and our standard of living is increased.

    This continues for a few terms until everyone is sick of all this saving: "Why aren't we funding ___? These ___ are important!"

    Repeat.

    Once in a while, in provincial politics, we get sick of both parties and elect someone else. They're usually out after one term.

    Also, all parties take advantage of the fact that immigrants tend to vote for whichever government brought them in. So surges in immigration are timed to ensure they are eligible to vote by the next election.

  2. Well, to be fair, that pretty much sounds like how democracy is supposed to work. It's better than out system in the States.

    Elect a conservative who gets us into a massive war, costing us zillions of dollars.

    Get mad at him and elect a liberal, who is pretty much stuck with the wars for quite some time, and also enacts massive social programs, costing us zillions of dollars.

    Repeat if necessary.
