Why would they do this? They have already announced their intention to scrap the registry. With a majority there is nothing to stand in their way. The best reason I can come up with is that they want to squeeze the last $20 they can from each of the anti-gun registry rubes. Expect anti-Wheat Board ads for the Wheat Board rubes and so it will go.
The Conservative Party has demonstrated a phenomenal strength in its fund raising techniques. But the means to an end have become an end in itself. The Party fund raises, not as part of a means to effect a policy goal, but to fund the machine. It will generate legislation design to ensure the richness of the party rather than the well-being of the nation. It will wantonly destroy everything in its path without even knowing why. All that matters is the size of the bank account and paying the Party bureaucracy. The original purpose of the Party has been forgotten long ago. The Doomsday Machine becomes an apt metaphor.
This is the most dangerous aspect of this government and it's apparatus. Now if only we could envisage a way to explode some impulse engines in its gaping maw.Recommend this Post
