Current system not working for the people

Dear Editor,

When will our world governments ever realize that the current monetary and tax system is not working for the people.

It only works for the banks and the big corporations.

All our villages, towns and cities are facing major infrastructure problems that the taxation system can’t pay for because the taxes are already too high.

We have everything in Canada or the world, for that matter, that we could ever hope for. But we are all lacking one thing and that is money.

You need money to buy and sell with.

I wonder if we’ll ever get people in the government with the brains to figure it out.

The governments across Canada are trying to cut the education and healthcare funding, of all things to make cuts to.

These should not be cut!

Our hospitals and extended care facilities are already underfunded and understaffed.

There is so much money needed in the next few years for highways and infrastructure of all kinds that is mind-boggling.

But, our governments will probably do nothing until the country is at a standstill.

The people can’t afford to pay for borrowing and paying interest on it anymore, and it is so simple to fix.

The Government of Canada or any other country has to print the money to run our infrastructure on.

Way too simple for our governments to figure out.

This would probably solve a lot of problems around the world also. And no amount of pipelines will save us from the problems we’re facing.

At the present time, they have the power to print the money and this should be the government of the day’s job.

Please pass this on to friends and neighbours, send copies to your MLA’s and MP’s and the Opposition, to the premiers of every province and especially the Prime Minister and his Finance Minister and lots of copies to the Bank of Canada Governor, or even your favourite TV Talk Show Host or Radio.

If the government gets enough copies of this, maybe they will take time to read it.
