Why the Canadian Dollar Drops
The tax-and-spend politicians caused our dollar to drop,
Though they deny that they are hooked or they cannot stop.
They tax and spend for all their friends in Quebec and Shawinigan,
Call it grants equalization, loans; now they’re all back in again,
Call it impunity with immunity as they repeat every opportunity,
For bilingual friends with multicultural trends in their Liberal community.
And when the dollar drops to a dime they’ll all go out and celebrate,
When the national debt gets to a trillion, they want us to congratulate,
They’ve not read ‘bout referendums ‘cause that’s not in their Charter,
And when our dollar‘s worth a dime we can all revert to barter.
They’re there for life; no recall, term limits or restrictions,
And the Access Act hides it all; no fuss or criminal convictions.
It’s the system that’s all wrong and we’re stuck in status quo,
We need proportional representation or we’ll get useless dough.
