Trudeau is, in short, the worst

Array

Hands up everyone who believes a country can continue to borrow money, grow the national debt indefinitely and never have to pay it back? Right.

Oh, you mean that deal is only available to people who voted Liberal? You’re presenting me with a bill because the Finance Minister and his selfie-aggrandizing Leader spent money they didn’t have to pay for stuff the country doesn’t need to promote the Prince of Belle Hair and please his adoring something for nothing crowd who maybe even hold a Liberal membership which they also didn’t have to pay for cause its ‘free’?!

Well, free to some maybe, but for the rest of us, when tax and spend Liberals are running the show, it costs us plenty. It is beginning to appear when the Liberals said it was time for a change, the ‘real change’ they had in mind was the change in our pockets.

To be fair, the Liberals openly said they would run “small” deficits to build infrastructure and get the economy growing faster, but economic growth remains anaemic as the Liberals continue to pursue bad economic policy in favour of their social engineering agenda, and their “small deficits” have already morphed into a monster that a recent finance department report says will lead to a doubling of our national debt to over one and a half trillion dollars.

Our Liberal government’s wastrel ways will have to be paid for. They need more revenue and Minister Morneau will soon be bringing down a budget. Whether he moves to vacuum our pockets now or later, we taxpayers will be on the hook for it as well as our children whose future the Liberals continue to mortgage.

Then again, maybe we don’t have to “get used to it,” at least not beyond 2019 when the next federal election will be held. Then we voters will have the opportunity to change back to a Conservative government. Too bad we didn’t stick with them and their policy of smaller government, sound economic management, fiscal competence, balanced budgets and sustainable support for the middle class, families and lower income Canadians.

And did you read Gwyn Morgan’s recent well-reasoned analysis of Trudeau’s policies? His conclusion: Trudeau and his Liberals are driving Canada toward “economic suicide.” And who will pay for that? We all will, folks, and dearly.

The sooner we can turf Justin and his toadies out, the better.

2019 can not come too soon.
