And you can't have a prosperous economy when the government is way overspending, raising tax rates, printing too much money, over regulating and restricting free trade. It just can't be done.
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?
There was the little Mom & Pop variety store when I was a kid that would accept Canadian Tire money for candy purchases from the kids. lol
He'd just go use it at Canadian Tire.
Years ago, I was working at the Meikle mine in Carlin Nevada, I stopped to get some smokes at an out of the way convenience store.
We had a wad of CT cah in the glove box. My buddy dared me to use it to buy smokes.
I took the money, but had second thoughts as I made my way into the store.
When I stepped up to the counter and asked for the smokes, I was met with...
"Where you from boy? You sure do talk weird."
I told him where I was from, and proceeded to explain that all I had was Canadian money, and I would pay him double the face value.
