On last night's show, Chris Berg of Australia's Institute of Public Affairs, joins me to explain why his country abandoned its carbon tax just a short time after it was signed into law. There's a lesson here for Canada...

The carbon tax has nothing to do with climate change. It’s just another way that the left wing tax and spend governments dreamed up in order to fleece the average citizen to produce revenue for them to spend on all their socialist programs. They run up the deficit and then get desperate and have to find another way to fool everyone into paying them more taxes. The problem is it won’t work because the more taxes companies have to pay they will have to either move to the US, hire less employees or just fold their businesses. Either way people will have less and less money to spend and the economy will eventually fall apart. That’s why socialism never works.

When we breath in, we inhale 310 ppm of CO2. When we breath out, we exhale 40,000 ppm of CO2. Just give it enough time and we will have a breathing tax from dear old brainless Baby Doc and his puppet master Gerald Butts.

Besides, they don’t care. Their plan is to destroy western culture. Let the chips fall where they may.

Three pillars of Leftie-dom: The don’t learn from their mistakes, they don’t learn from other people’s mistakes and they refuse to exercise discernment.

Corruption at its finest is what the Carbon Tax actually is.

The lesson is it is a job destroying price increasing tax grab. They wrap the big green logo on it but it has nothing to do with the environment. It is a money grab for the green cartels.Has nothing to do with anything but $$$$$$$.
