Many argued that free trade would destroy this country(and many others) and it did! Small businesses failed due to inability to compete with mega stores. We saw this coming and didn't stop the rich from imposing it. When you look back to simpler times, you can realize what made them simpler.

Remember when we stood in line at a bank on payday? You likely talked to neighbours and chatted with strangers to pass the day waiting. We were social... since interest was 13% do many simply saved for that car or bought a bucket to drive while we saved. Then came the credit card! We could have it now without begging the banker, and soon pay later schemes popped up for everything from TV's to vacations. Many ignored this rising debtload because they were on a roll! We weren't watching close enough to see that our government too was doing the same, but on a far grander scale. We soon had less time to be social as we had to now pay for all these things that we really didn't even need...

Soon we will have to return to these times of having less. The difference is that many of us have sold ourselves into slavery(in a sense) due to debt and will likely have little to show for a lifetime's work. Thus I say cash out while you can and release yourself from this path. Return to simpler times and be satisfied that your collar no longer is attached to a leash!

I'm sensing a little of the, "those were the good ol' days" going on here. It seems to me that 'owing your soul to the company store' is nothing new. Now we may have polished it up and created an app for the kids, however to my thinking, nothing has really changed. There are people who are good with money and who behave themselves; conversely there are wastrels. This is not new. Tomorrow the world will keep turning and the sun will rise and set. As preppers, hopefully we are a little more aware of our nickels and dimes than our media driven neighbours and can keep a lid on it. In other words Knuckles, "What do you mean WE paleface?" ;)

By not buying form your local stores because the new Walmart was cheaper, we aided in the closure of many small businesses. This is not really our own personal faults but due to those we elect. The failure to stop this monopoly from taking over when we finally saw what it was doing to our economy is on their heads. A proper media should have told society where this was leading so we could change laws in time.

But instead, money is spent on manipulating society to think that these changes are good for us. That is how banks gained the power they now have. Seems a 12 year old can explain it better than most adults https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3c-aN6Y7OU

Now here is something of interest. Canada's bank, the Bank of Canada, is unique in this day and age https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PJrsLruh0o
There are many advantages of this today as our economy doesn't have to fall into the hands of the global elite. We can borrow from our own country and stay independent. If Harper tries to change this too, He'll be selling us out for sure.

We were already sold out by Trudeau in 1974. Watch out for what Junior does if he gets elected....

The only real option left then is the NDP... the least of the evils it seems! ;)

In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king! ;)

Better the devil you know... I will likely stay the course. The alternatives to Harper are even scarier :D

Tredeau Junior has already stuck his foot in his mouth and made an A_ _ out of himself. Think I'll stick with Harper.....Yah, the alternatives are worse, way worse!
