Canada, the Best Governed Country on Earth?

That's the opinion of David Frum. I think we could cut the deficit faster and have many government programs the we need to get rid of. I do think things are going in the right direction, but we must keep pressure on HM Canadian Government to continue to dowsize government and help get government out of lives. We also need broad based tax relief Under Stephen Harper, Canada can fairly claim to be the best-governed country among advanced democracies in the world. Thursday’s federal budget locks up Canada’s lead. Right now, the major economies share a common economic problem: With the world slowly and fitfully emerging from the worst economic crisis since the 1930s, they must begin to plan to reduce their debt burdens — but not so fast that they crush demand and abort the recovery. The United Kingdom exemplifies the dangers of moving too fast: your recovery falters. The United States exemplifies the risks of moving too slow: The inability of its political system to agree on any plan to balance the budget has cost the world’s biggest economy its Triple-A credit rating.

I think Frum is right. Harper increased the size of government to provided needed stimulus. And now PMSH will slowly ease up on spending to bring it back to where it was before the stimulus budgets. All moderate, well thought out approaches that worked. What doesn't work is what the right wing radicals in the US would like to do or that is being done in the UK. PMSH is governing from the right but not the far right. This centrist approach will keep us in power.
