    Taxes are unconstitutional and only made necessary by an unlawful monetary system controlled by the private bank of Canada also known as the 13th branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. But no one talks about that.

    Maybe this should be a mandate too. Like muskratfalls, maybe this deficit, mismanagement, cuts, layoffs, hiring freezes is what they think we mandated the elected government to do!

    As with many of your missives you tend to focus on one piece of a puzzle and use it to construct an overall conclusion as to the nature of the whole. I have worked for and with land developers, data center owners, ranchers and various other businesses and would not trade the experience for the world. I have observed their budgetary processes, proformas and other planning and accounting inquiries to determine if an effort will create a profit to distribute to folks so they can spend it on necessities of life produced by others. Guess what, all of these analysises have taxes as a line item in the expense column and in more than one place. They show not only the income taxes that you dwell on but also sales taxes, property taxes, franchise taxes and sometimes others. At some point any of these cost items, including taxes, can choke off the project and, thereby, the effort and the product. It might interest you to know that most political units intending to improve themselves offer tax breaks as incentives to businessmen and entrepreneurs to commence or relocate operations in their locales. You seem to have no concept of these as well as many other details necessary to understand the process. Your method is akin to looking into one window of a rather large house and making global and universal conclusions as to the make up of the whole. I also find it strange that someone who has in the past offered a good deal of criticism of governmental entities, their spending habits and general operation, to advocate so strongly to allocate more capital and assets to them.
