The most accurate way to explain the HST’s “benefits” is Robin Hood in Reverse!

B.C. Liberals believe you take from the poor families and give to the wealthy bankster families. Since corporations have the same rights and freedoms as human beings, then why do they not have the responsibility to pay their fair share of taxes?

Perhaps if you make 95 per cent of the wealth you should pay 95 per cent of the taxes – now that could be responsible taxation from a citizen’s perspective.

The HST initiative was the first time B.C. citizens stood up to the government and said “ENOUGH!”

If you want your voice to be heard by any government, this HST vote is your best chance to let governments everywhere know you are not happy.

Governments are supposed to be of the people and not for the banksters.

Vote “Yes” to scrap the HST and maybe governments will start listening to the electorate rather than we the people fearing our government.
