This Childish War on Fossil Fuels, how long will it last before Austerity Measures? Gas prices in Canada almost a toonie per litre – May 09, 2022,
When the average person buys into Left-Wing ideology, they imagine no pain, the salesman or politician who sells people on their vision for the future, makes it appear as though the pain felt by the people will be minimal. Politicansunlike private sector salesmen, especially in developed nations like Canada have more wiggle room than politicians in developed nations.
I say this because tolerance for Justin Trudeau’s war on fossil fuels at least for now appears to be normal. But I remind the reader that we have 3 more years of this. Making matters worse is what’s happening in the United States, our largest trading partner, the Left-wing supporters who bought into Joe Bidens’ version of America, have 3 years left on their contract also.
Because Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau were hired by their respective voters around the same time, Justin Trudeau was the beneficiary of Donald Trump’s regulatory cuts, which helped the U.S economy tremendously. Joe Biden by hook or by crook wins the 2020 election and signs a number of executive orders, which basically declared war n fossil fuels.
Long story short, Because Trump did not declare war on fossil fuels, Justin Trudeau and the Canadian economy benefitted tremendously. Now, that Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau share similar beliefs, the cost of doing business is going up. Fortunately for the two of them, most people don’t understand that the capitalism drives prices down and Big Government pushes prices up, so the media for the time being can do its best to put a positive spin on things and blame external forces that are beyond the control of government for the higher prices and shortages.
Sure, it will work for people who share Joe Bidens and Justin Trudeau’s vision for the future, but what about the majority of people who don’t care for politics? What story is going to resonate with them, for shortages and higher prices? I don’t know the answer to that question, but what I do know is that if a politician can promise to bring prices down, they might become the next leader of their respective country in the next election.
I personally don’t think people care much about anything except for their standard of living, this is why in my opinion if you’re a conservative politician you counter the Left-wing leader by repeating the same mantra that you will lower the cost of living, you will make prices lower. The Conservative parties of all countries should be the austerity measures politicians, plain and simple.
The problem with Conservative politicians is they spend too much time on subjects most people associate with Leftists. If you’re not going to win the which politician will promise to spend the most money debate, don’t bother trying, sometimes people need to learn things the hard way, as prices rise, more people will be more receptive to the Conservative vision for the country. As I like to point out, the only thing that really bothers me about Justin Trudeau and his cabinet is that they’re coming after freedom of speech. Because destroying the economy is one thing, not being allowed to speak up in defense of liberty is something entirely different.
How long before the majority call for shrinking the size of government? I’m not sure, but one thing is for sure, Canada’s Liberal government and their childish, short-sighted war on fossil fuels is getting more and more expensive with every passing day.
Interesting times ahead!
