Who Paid For It!?

Boy you can sure tell there is an election going on in our home province. The promises for spending are going crazy! It seems to always be the same no matter what democratic society you belong to....the government spends money and wants to take all the credit for the purchase. But who really is responsible for buying all this stuff?

Who really is responsible for the money that buys the
...medical systems (hospitals, doctors, nurses)
...armed forces, police and fire
...homeless shelters
...the justice system
........and all the other things that government pays for including their donations to local charities and non-profit organizations..

Well if you know me by know you know where this is going and it's all about something the unions love to ask for but DON'T really deserve...RESPECT. Actually I think we would even be willing to shared credit...

The point I am getting to is when you really analyze all the promises for spending's really because business allows them the opportunity to make these promises AND pay for all the services we cherish living in our society.

The forumula is creates jobs and profits ....equals taxes...resulting in government purchases.

And let's break this down even further....80% of all jobs are created by small business NOT big business which seems to get the most incentives for job creation. Weird eh?

But here's something else I am willing to bet on....small business is okay with that. We are okay to play that role...except we would just like a little more respect and credit for helping to make it happen. After aint braggin if its true!

Here's to your success!
