Almost time to get out the vote

 I often use the quote, “ A penny saved is a government oversight.”

Nothing validates that statement more than a recent article attributed to the Fraser Institute, a Canadian think tank.

“The average Canadian family spends more on taxes than on food, shelter and clothing combined,” the think tank said in a report in August.

In response to the ongoing bad management, all we can do is make sure a wholesale change of government on election day. While not a guarantee of a return to responsible and ethical government, it will give the losers four years to work on convincing us we should return them, and as well four years for the elected to convince us they should stay.

Elections are upon is shortly. Make sure you vote. Bad people get elected by those who do not vote.
