I don't think I can afford the Harper government anymore. I can't
afford another G20 glut fest and I can't afford to pay for all the
F-35 fighter jets, which we will never use. I can't afford all the
extra prisons that he wants to build. I can't afford to feed all the
prisoners whose parole he denies.

I also can't afford the extra police we will need to arrest all the
potential new prisoners he wants to generate. I can't afford to have
more of our children locked up with mandatory jail sentences for
growing some marijuana plants. I also can't afford the additional tax
breaks now given to corporations, forcing me to carry the burden for
all of the above.

At least the Liberals knew how to balance a budget. I think it's time
to get the corporate fat cats out of office while I still have some
money left.
