Ontario is moving to “create” and “protect” nearly 1,600 jobs — many engineering positions that could move offshore — by investing in private firms, said Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid.
Ontario's Liberals are definitely not slim, but clearly shady. As I predicted in Clouds Looming Over Ontario, the Liberals would soak money from one set of taxpayers and 'invest' it with another group, all in the name of 'togetherness'. The Liberal economic interventionists are stimulating our economy with prescribed drugs, and in heavy doses.
The problem with these well intended forced hits is that it creates an addiction. We crave and demand the euphoria of getting our entitled thrill of other people's success. We become dependant on Liberals (and sometimes Conservatives) to give us our 'fix'and thus don't look for the real fix. We cry, "we can't maintain jobs on our own, help us Liberals! Take from those with, and give to those without, then we will cheer fairness and togetherness!" Can any left leaning thinker explain this one to me? How is it helping Ontario to undermine the free market by thinking it is the governments responsibility to create jobs? That's like some dude snatching my daughter off our yard only to later say, "oh, I'm sorry, I thought it was my job to parent your child". Absurd. I am responsible to parent my child and I am responsible for my successes and failures. Why do we undermine the principle of personal responsibility with these left policies? Why does the left do such a poor job articulating why they are justified to encroach on our jurisdiction and operate with impunity and domineering authority?
I will further predict that the Ontario middle class will continue to suffer unless the Liberals stop forcing the redistribution pills on us. I sadly see a decrepit, addicted population demanding more from their government.
Addicts. The liberals are turning it's citizens into addicts. Justify your position Liberals. Why do you intervene in the free market and think it's your job to help rescue jobs? It's not. Leave that to the free market, it will produce real and superior results. Sure there may not be any 'quick fixes', but that's okay. You are not our protectors, our providers or our providential helpers. Stop abusing your authority and acting as though you are. And my goodness, if you insist on these endless redistribution-interventions, at least justify the action beyond the 'immediate need' your claiming to meet. It's so anti-intellectual. Will the real left winger please stand up and give some sensible account for these flagrant violations of jurisdiction? What a rant, I think I need a chill pill...but just this once.
