Canada ascending, U.S. plummets in economic freedom
Canada is ascending in a whole lot of ways. Canada is protecting free speech, standing up for their strong ally Israel, standing against tyranny and chaos on multiple fronts, against political correctness run amok, and now rising to the top five countries with the most economic freedom, according to a new Fraser Institute report — now leaps and bounds ahead of the United States thanks to the gradual shrinking of the Canadian government since the mid-1990s as America’s just got bigger. The U.S. has plummeted from position numero uno a decade ago down to lowly 18th (yeah eighteenth) position.
You should do it, definitely, I tell my leftist friends (yeah I still have some and a total of 2 relatives still scarily on the Left). See, they only spottily keep up with current events or rely on serious lefty leaning news sources and so are completely out of touch. To wit, despite some having been born way after the Vietnam War was even contemplated, they all seem to think Canada is some bastion of extreme lefty hippy dippy rainbow-making paradise and so make such claims as “If Obama is defeated, I’m moving to Canada!.” Eh, this sentiment would be more fitting for today’s Republicans if Obama were to win.
Sorry to say but Stephen Harper’s government makes Mitt Romney wearing a full metal jacket look hippy dippy and Harper has really only just gotten started. The success on all fronts means thankfully a conservative govt is not likely to be seriously challenged in Canada anytime soon.
