    Yeah guess which liberal country still has a AAA bond rating because they didn't signal to the rest of the world that they'd default on their debt.

    Take off, hoser.

    Canada also does not spend over 6 trillion dollars a year on military expenditures... they spend something like 20 Billion..

    Guess their priorities are different, with socialized medicine and all..

    Canadians can do these things because they act like grownups politically, internationally and economically.

    Two things:

    1) Faulty premise. Canada did not just lower their corporate tax rate. They lowered it in January, 2011 - almost 2 years ago.

    2) No link.

    But I'll play along......how much good has it done them? How much has their GDP risen? How has their economy grown in the last 20 months? Has their unemployment rate risen or fallen?

    Canada also has very strict gun control laws on handguns, assault weapons and ammunition.. no sure if it is connnected, but:

    US incarcerates 743 people per 100,000 residents... to put another way US has 5% of the population, but 25% of all prisoners..

    Canada incarcerates 131 peope per 100,000 residents..

    Prison systems are incredibly expensive...

    Great point. And its good fxckin thing we do because all these other countries don't.
    Most countries in Europe are flat broke with their freebe societies and they spend very little on their own self defense because they look to Big Daddy to protect them.
    If we spent as little as the European countries and Canada did on a military you'd see 1938 all over again before you saw 2038.
    Thats just a plain fact.

    Darryl - Do you have a breakdown of the 743/100K number?

    I'm curious what the composition looks like...ie we have laws that imprison people here that they don't in Canada, or don't to the levels we do (yes Im looking at non violent drug offenders).

    Heres something to think about.

    Here's something else to think about------this is your thread, you started it. It is a thread about Canada lowering their corporate tax rate. Where is the link? What are the answers to the questions about your claim?

    Now you want a strong military AND lower corporate taxes. What kind of military does Canada have with their lowered corporate tax rate? Maybe if Canada had a higher corporate tax rate, such as the US has, they, too, could leave 1938 behind.

    Thanks Dad!!!

    In all seriousness I would cut the defense budget by at least 40% and reallocate those funds to bringing our country more into the 21st century.

    Just off the top of my head:
    Research into true alternative energy - Cold Fusion for 1
    Infrastructure modernization
    Job training for people who are out of work as their trade is "no longer relevant".

    If we spent less on defense, 1938 would not happen again. That's just silly talk.

    We don't actually have to "flex our muscles" - ie maintain 900 bases, have 30 nuke subs, the F-22, X number of Air Craft Carriers to enforce the idea of who we are. All any crazy dictator would have to do is open a history book and see what we can do if we have to.

    Besides - When are we going to stop being the World's Police department? Enough is enough.

    There is your link. And I'll answer your question with a question.
    Is Canada better off than it was 4 years ago?
    Its military?
    You tell me.

    Seems like a pretty conservative proposal to me. Reducing marginal rates and broadening the base. I thought Republicans liked that sort of thing?

    Did you ever think of the costs and logistics of supplying 700 overseas bases??? That cost alone is staggering.. and now that 45% of our returning veterans are applying for permanent disability, thanks to George and his lies Iraq is the gift that keeps giving.. and will do so for the next 70 years...
