Sup Pit,

This thread is directed at those people who are unhappy with their government or country and slander them on the Internet. What exactly is it you want from them and if possible could you say how you want them to achieve this?


(I'm not going to argue with anyone, I'm just asking a question)

/thread.

One thing that comes to mind it better spending of the tax payers money. In town, they have built a large statue dedicated to someone whom no one I've asked has heard of, and it must have cost a hell of a lot of money.

If we are supposedly having serious financial issues, why is the government spending money on what is aesthetic, rather than what is functional? We need things that benefit society, not what looks pretty.

We actually had elections in my country just yesterday, not only going back into a socialistic policy after being liberal for 10 years, but with a female prime minister- for the first time in our country's history. I've got the change I wanted for now.

Is there a noticeable difference in everyday living between the two styles of Government?

/pedant power

Technically, very few people slander their government on the internet. You would need to upload a video or something. Libel is far more common.

In answer to your question, it is only libel (or slander) if people are making a false accusation. Do you see this often? Most criticism I see of governments on the internet is at least based on a genuine issue, even if the people talking about it can be somewhat misguided and obnoxious.

Cut petrol tax, stop invading other countries and sticking our noses in, remove speed limits on out of town motorways and have it just "appropriate for conditions" ala Germany, make up the deficit by not handing 8 bedroom houses out to every Somalian immigrant that turns up with 300 kids, stop being a bunch of pussies when a bunch of kids throw bricks about and steal a few TV's, and lower tax for low income people and raise it for ultra rich corporations.

Stop sucking up to the middle east, and start brown nosing Russia instead, then buy their oil rather than some Arabian oil baron's supply.

All of which being my opinion, im fairly cool with everything else this wet miserable island has to offer.

I'd like Nationalized Healthcare, like every single other industrialized nation.
I'd like Clear Channel to be hit with a huge antitrust suit.
I'd like there to be a Flat Tax.
I'd like a very strict separation of church and State, even church and politics.
I'd like sensible drug laws (this includes alcohol).
I'd also like to see honest cops that are equally subject to law and punishment (in practice); and fewer cops in general.

Well, I can't say I have anything to complain about when I think of our southern neighbors going belly up, but.....

I've got to say, for now, the few things that tick me off in Canada are the price differences compared to the states. Our gas, anything, it's wayyy cheaper in the states and I can understand some of it is inevitable but goddammit, our government officials could at least try and cut down costs for general consumer products. Plus our booze is just completely through the roof. Ontario is pretty bad, but I heard BC is worse. We just get taxed up the ass when it comes to that stuff. You can thank Dalton McGuinty for that and his infamous track records of constant tax hikes and price upping with no real results coming out of it (besides our roads and bridges not looking like Quebec's). Such a shame, we really have some truly pristine craft brews, Ontario is actually quite known for it, plus our wine from the Niagara regions, I'm not much of a wine guy, though. I can't wait until the alcohol tax and price foolishness gets shot down to hell and hopefully the monopoly of the LCBO gets eradicated. They steal good competition (therefore, profits->tax results) from small business owners (convenience stores and such), the government twists and loops commerce laws to force higher pre-sale taxes (to be blended into the base price), which in turn, the LCBO jacks up the prices even more (because they really need to squeeze even more pennies? Given the fact that not only do they hold all alcohol control and prices, they also are surely financially connected to pre-sale alcohol profits and funding from the provincial government) and lock them in at record highs. Their only excuse not to abolish the LCBO, is because they want to have better control over underage drinking (yet either way, anyone who sells alcohol to an underage faces stiff penalties, even worse for business owners). And I'm sure they would try to convince us of the good tax dollars it brings in... Right, because that's why you're constantly squeezing in pennies until suddenly the product gains many dollars on it's price tag and no one can say otherwise.

Constant tax hikes, always having to see hydro prices go up, and I mean ALWAYS, not even exaggerating. And of course the HST, which was somehow passed. And of course not to mention the ''eco-tax'' which appeared out of bloody nowhere and was put into action so quickly. And of course, upon further investigation, they found out that the entire reason for the eco-tax (proper disposal of certain hazardous materials) gets contracted out to some unknown, out-of-the-blue private company, which so happens to get a share of that tax. And that's not all, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

Slow clap for you, mr. McGuinty, congratulations.

Seriously... we've been without government for over 450 days now, and only a couple of days ago the first breakthrough in forming one was made, they'll need about a dozen more before actually getting there...
