Is that the percentage of Canadians that have jobs these days? If so, then possibly, as those are the predominant members of conservative parties.
Your ignorance is astounding. 10% is a gross exaggeration. The current unemployment rate is 6.8%.
Get your facts right.
And, taxing the rich because they are rich is not socailism. Socailism tries to narrow the gap between the rich and poor, while right winged capitalism tries to expand the gap to maximise profits. The oligarchy we live in today seems to eliminate entrepreneurial attempts by small business owners. Big corporations dominate the influence in right wing parties. When you elect a right wing party, you "maximise" the profits for the corporations.
"maximise profits" wow, im sounding like a capitalist. That statement is the foundation for the capitalist idealism. YOu know how you "maximise" profits"? Well, you cut wages, eliminate safety standards, cut pensions, cut worker benifits, and cut jobs in order to be "more competative." Right wing goverments increase the tax burden on the middle income and low income families, cut public services or just reduce their budget so the become almost ineffective. The media corporations paint a rosy picture of the economy so that you are brainwashed into thinking that you
(the worker) is actually benifiting.
Im sure your totally ignorant of the labour job. Sitting in a room, around a computer the whole time does let ya lose touch with reality. Tell me, what type of work experience have you had? Have you even worked a labour job?
Let me tell ya, ive worked plenty of labour jobs, and i have a idea of what it's like. It seems most right wingers i know seem to avoid labour jobs. They seem to be afraid to get their hands dirty
