If New Brunswickers could keep ‘their representatives’ accountable to the common good – we wouldn’t be in such a financial and social mess to begin with.
With billions splurged over the years on boondoggle after secret boondoggle – NB’s collective (when the bill comes due) charge account is maxed out.
Credit raters and financiers who listed junk US mortgage bonds as AAA right up until the 2008 crash have told the NB people if they want to keep enjoying the plastic fruit of globalization down at the ‘ol Walmart, they’re just going to have to buck up and accept Greece-style austerity in the face of never ending paper debts.
The alternative: throwing off the flee-ridden blanket of ‘free-trade’ tyranny and fraudulent currencies that only benefit off-shore feudal lords will cause some major pains in the short- to medium term for our province. On the other hand, continuing to boil like stupid frogs in a caustic witch’s brew is no acceptable alternative.
So, Vive la Nouveau-Brunswick libre and cast out the vassal legislative servants of the oligarchs and international criminal syndicates at each and every opportunity (by election when possible, by torch-wielding mob when necessary).
