Democracy In Action

Brussels Journal carries an article entitled 'Switzerland as an Example for the World', one which is well worth a read.

"Switzerland manages to run a smaller government as a share of gross domestic product than the United States and most other countries while providing a higher level of service, security, prosperity and freedom......It is a small country with religious and language differences; nevertheless, the Swiss have managed to live peaceably together for a long time. It has few natural resources, yet it has managed to have one of the highest per capita incomes in the world......The Swiss and other low-tax states provide the necessary tax competition to keep the high-tax states from totally oppressing their citizens."

Now where did UK plc go wrong? Ah yes, the Lib/Lab/Con - Oh, and the EU!

There's only one resource that creates wealth and that's people.

Things in the ground are just swapped for the wealth others create.
