Hello Mr. Robinson:
Canadian Walter Robinson kisses the Bush Assets

tax cuts

It was not long ago that I wrote about the bothersome conditions of the American economy and I have been incessantly emphasizing the need to think for ourselves rather than follow the demagogic advices of the experts. We have Canadian tax expert Walter Robinson who never gets tired to preach economic growth by cutting taxes. Robinson has recently written
"Thank goodness Tax Freedom Day falls on a weekend overtaxed Canadians deserve a rest. By contrast our American friends celebrated TFD on April 19th and our cousins across the pond in the U.K. "stopped workin' for the man" on June 2nd. The lesson for taxpayers is clear: Big government in Canada is still a taxing reality."




Robinson wants Canadians to copycat the tax cuts policies of the Americans so that the privatization of our government can wage pre-emptive wars along with the Americans. Mr. Robinson doesn't understand that economic growth is not disassociated from our social and cultural growth, and Mr. Robinson doesn't understand that the present world wide terrorism and economic downturn are partially rooted in the American 'aggressive' Free Market forces.




Robinson doesn't understand that the Bush tax cuts have been financed by the increase of trillions of dollars in the federal debt. A few days ago I received an e-mail originating from Kevin McIntyre, contributor of Ensign, and I became more aware of the dire financial conditions of the state of California.




California has today a US$38 billion deficit while only three years ago this same state had a US$9 billion budget surplus. This unprecedented fiscal crisis has derived from the recent crash in the stock market, from the free marketing of energy by the Enron corporations of America, and indirectly from the policies of the Bush administration.



cut or tax

All the other American states are wrestling with the thoughts of either increasing taxes or reducing services in education and health.




The employment of people must become the first priority of our social economic policies. But this is not the case with the Bush administration which is spending more money on the technology of new Weapons of Mass Destruction while America is experiencing higher unemployment and lower total employment. Hello Mr. Robinson.
