Even dictators build roads and bridges and feed their subjects.

I call bull*****, Sinc. There is no way to get roads and bridges built except through a collective effort which is financed by your taxes and everyone else's taxes pooled together. If you can appreciate driving on roadways, then you at least in part support socialism.

You're so brainwashed with your crabbed, socialist thinking that you don't believe those thing exist without government. It's sad really.

Apparently you missed the part of my post that noted that even dictators build roads and bridges, did you Frank?

Please explain to me how that is socialism, would you?

Tell me, Don: how are roads and bridges financed where YOU live? Last I checked it came out of taxes: income taxes, sales taxes, and property taxes being the big contributors. How did you think they were being financed? Sure, private companies bid for who gets the contract, but they are ultimately financed through our taxes. Yours and mine. Collective pooling of funds for the benefit of all citizens. Socialism.

We live in a mixed economy here in Canada, Don, and it works just fine whether you like it or not. The problems come when certain people try to take advantage of the system (*ahem* Mike Duffy, a Harper appointment).

P.S. And yes, dictators can also take advantage of the system, but I wouldn't call Harper a dictator. Yet.

Public sector unions love to take advantage of socialism.

Roads and bridges were being built long before governments muscled in to monopolize their construction.

Where do you suppose said dictator gets the money to build said roads and bridges?

Certainly they were, but governments have been around for about as long as there have been people. So who paid for the construction of these roads and bridges? And more importantly, who pays for their construction today?

The problem is you Conservative wanna-be's aren't even really totally for free enterprise. You use socialist contributions in your lives everyday and don't even realize it. Canada is a mixed economy.
