You're not contracted by the Harper government are you? It just seems you almost speak the same ill words as he, "We can not be effective at major economic matters any longer, unless we work with our other economic partners around the world, and work with them closely and intimately, that is essential. I know some people don't like it, it's a loss of national sovereignty, but it's the simple truth." Now in my own mind set I see treason there, he willing admits giving away part of our sovereignty for some extra cash.
"Canada, entrapped in the stupid quasi-Socialist mindset, and thoroughly entrenched in cultural blandness, is not going to be sitting pretty just because circular reasoning is cute when correctly spoken from the mouth of a girl who demonstrates perfectly the exact age and mentality of those who trick us with their older appearance and fancy sounding positions, ivy league education, and total inability to form a personal thought that doesn't myopically pursue a dangerous agenda-- as well intentioned or evil as it may be." You don't think that comes off as arrogant are you daft?
The part you say is self explained about our internationally buying power, who says we have to buy from outside our country? If you don't think we have enough land and materials to provide the basics necessities of life for our citizens, think again. Yes we might not have some precious metals like the ones about to be pillaged out of Kenya, but those are for new electronic devices. As far as I am concerned the electronic technology can be put on hiatus and we can delve into the necessities, health, education and purpose.
There is roughly 50 billion CAD printed currency in circulation. If we were to go and pay of all our dept we would need to bump our supply up 1500%. This means that when we sold a barrel of oil for 90 USD we could cancel out 1400 off of the 800 billion, 57,142,8571 barrels of oil later and we are back on par. Most of Canadian petroleum production, approximately 283,000 cubic meters per day (1,780,000 bbl/d), was exported, almost all of it to the United States. Canada is the largest single source of oil imports into the United States." So 57 million divided by 1.75 million/day means in roughly a month that would be paid off. Only problem is that we sold our land for the US and China to rape and pillage. Problem is it isn't the general Canadian populace that sold our land. Rightfully we the people still hold ownership of it.
