Can you see the difference?

Yesterday our Federal Government did something that should not only go over well with the general population, it also clearly illustrates the differences between the Conservatives and the opposition Liberals and NDP with regards to finances.

To highlight the point here are a couple of quotes on the announced cuts/surplus/debt payment.

"To do these announcements of huge cuts to the least privileged Canadians at the same day you announce a $13-billion surplus, it tells you a lot about the Conservative frame of mind," said Liberal finance critic John McCallum.

Said NDP MP Charlie Angus: "We've seen an exercise in ideology. They're sitting on a massive surplus, the debt is at its lowest level in 30 years, and it would continue to decrease regardless of what was done today."

These 2 have figured it out, but yet they do not really understand. It will be the fact that they do not understand that will also keep them both in opposition for some time to come.

Have you figured it out yet? I think most of you have judging by your choice of internet reading material, but for those of you that might be of the leftist persuasion please allow me to explain it to you.

In the simplest terms possible; It is not their money!

The money that made up the surplus and the money that was being wasted on questionable programs belongs to the taxpayer and not to the government. The Conservatives know this and respect this fact, while the other guys have not figured it out and continue to think that it is their own money to do with what they wish.

The NDP socialists are a lost cause, but you would think that perhaps the 'new + improved' Liberals might have done a little re-think recently on their treatment and respect for the tax payer and our money. Does anyone over there not remember that little Adscam thing?

Now which one of these differing styles do you think closer reflects the views of the average Canadian who has to make their own tough monetary decisions on almost a daily basis?

I will leave the answer to the last question up to the hardworking taxpayers of this country.
