Personal responsibility? Don't make me laugh. This society knows fuck all about personal responsibility. Responsibility does not entail squandering what past generations created and otherwise turning one's own nation into a Third World sweatshop for the benefit of a handful at the top. Meanwhile, I would remind these modern-day robber barons that the very nature of an economic Ponzi scheme is to suppress wages at the bottom of the pyramid to bolster the incomes and profits of those at the top. It's reverse subsidization or better yet, we should call it a "tax" on poverty, to put it in Fraser Institute terms. Either way you describe it, history tells us that it works great, until it doesn't work at all i.e. when those at the bottom seek their money back from those at the top. And Canadians need not fool themselves that their economy is any more insulated from a global economic "reset" than any other country. Only Antarctica and Cuba are safe at this juncture.
No, not only did these people not get the Romney "don't go there" memo but they are doing their level best to say everything possible to stoke the silent rage that grows with each passing moment. I can't feel sorry for these types of people on the other side of what comes next.
p.s. the greatest irony is that the Fraser Institute is an advocate of lower taxes - unless of course it's for people who have minimal incomes.
