Tax Freedom Day - Canada

Once again this year, the Canadian Fraser Institute has dutifully calculated “Tax Freedom Day”: “The Fraser Institute annually calculates Tax Freedom Day in order to provide a comprehensive and easily understood indicator of the overall tax burden faced by the average Canadian family. Tax Freedom Day is the day in the year by which the average Canadian family has earned enough money to pay all taxes imposed on it by the three levels of Canadian government: federal, provincial, and local. If Canadians were required to pay all taxes up front, they would have to give governments each and every dollar they earned prior to Tax Freedom Day. In 2014, Tax Freedom Day fell on June 9, one day later than 2013 when Tax Freedom Day fell on June 8.”: http://www.fraserinstitute.org/studies/canadians-celebrate-tax-freedom-day-june-9-2014  

From a Social Credit perspective, the bulk of this taxation is entirely unnecessary. Eliminate chronic public debts (federal, provincial, and municipal) and you eliminate the taxes necessary to service these debts with their accompanying interest charges. Eliminate welfare, workfare, public pensions, employment insurance, and other related social programmes by providing everyone with a National Dividend funded debt-free in conjunction with a debt-free National Discount and you eliminate the tax money necessary to fund the programmes themselves and their accompanying bureaucracies. Eliminate most forms of taxation by replacing all of them with simple sales taxes and user fees (when appropriate) and the tremendous bureaucracies involved in maintaining the income and property tax systems could also be eliminated. Any individual or group who is genuinely interested in reducing the high levels of taxation under which we labour should take a serious look at Social Credit as it offers the best solution to this particular form of economic oppression.

    We in the British Commonwealth should each get hold of this statement made by Arthur A. Chresby a Research Analyst in Constitutional Law and apply it to our own country.
    Go to this website to see what it entails:- http://www.peoplesmandate.iinet.net.au/your_wii_be_done.pdf
    This is based on Australia and is a simple, non-technical beginners book of the true legal functions of the Queen, Governor General, State Governors, Parliament and Parliamentarians and the people.
    In my mind a politician is your representative in parliament and as such is YOUR servant. A servant only needs to know two words, YES SIR OR MADAM. I remember going to a political meeting and when the candidates were asked to give their definition of Democracy the first one got up and said, "You elect us and we rule you." He obviously didn't know what his true position was which is to serve. A servant. Every candidate said the same thing. They do not know what their position is. In New Zealand here they say they represent the National Party, Labour Party, Greens, whatever,,,, but they do not represent us. They say so. We must take this responsibility onto our shoulders and stop electing these people and then complain that they are not doing this or that till the next election and then elect the same type of person again. Read C H Douglas he points this out very clearly especially in his later years. He only wanted the Money System changed the same as Christ did to allow this to happen. He was hung on a cross in the most dramatic murder of all times, "I came that you may live life more abundantly." He didn't chaff on about more jobs, the amount of tax to be paid, the share market, what the interest was. He wanted you to live more abundantly.

    Well Said. But then all the nay-sayers will say "But what about all the jobs these tax regimes and social programs support?" Of course we know the correct answer is "Who cares?" With a guaranteed income, useless jobs and make work projects can and should suffer an unceremonious death - with prejudice. The thinking man should ask himself, "How did our governments fund themselves before Income Tax?" They had expensive armies and Ministries of this and that. The answer is they created the funds out of thin air - as was their prerogative. That prerogative is even embedded in the US Constitution Article 1. The Bank of Canada Act also contains it.

  • ‘In Service to Mammon’ and the Due Christian Response
    In attempting to communicate Social Credit ideas to a wider public, one often encounters hindrances and barriers of various sorts. One of the difficulties that tends to be characteristic of the contemporary Christian milieu in particular, is the belief, more or less unconscious in most cases, that engaging with questions of money, economics, finance and so forth is ‘mundane’ and therefore of no interest to Christianity, which is ‘otherworldly’. There is, in the minds of some people, a strict separation between the religious/spiritual/supernatural sphere and that of profane concerns, a separation which is somewhat analogous to the liberal democratic principle of ‘separation between Church and State’.

  • A Favourable Balance of Trade? - New Animated Video
    This is the first professional animated presentation of one key aspect of the Douglas or British Social Credit case (not to be confused with Chinese 'Social Credit'): the folly of 'favourable' trade balances under the existing financial system, where physical loss and inefficiency are financially rewarded.

  • Problems with Taxes
    Relying on bank credit, indirectly through taxation or directly via borrowing, to fund a Universal Basic Income (UBI) scheme is untenable. A fundamental reform of the financial system is the only viable means to ensure a future in which sustainable purchasing power is in the hands of the Canadian consumer. There is no need to take from Peter to give to Paul. Not one penny of anyone’s income would need to be redistributed. There is enough for everyone to have an income, a UBI, under a corrected financial system as advocated by Douglas Social Credit.
