Liberals or Conservatives
Is your refrigerator running?
If so, I hope it gets a lot of votes. 😉
The federal election is next week. I didn’t watch the recent debate. But I heard it was a train wreck.
If the polls are any indication it will be a pretty close race between incumbent Trudeau and O’Toole.
Who I’m voting for
Short answer, no one. 🙂
From a purely economic point of view voting just isn’t a good use of my time.
But if I had to vote I would choose the party that will cause the least amount of interference with me on my road to financial success. And right now that vote would go to team Purple.
The People’s Party has a mandate to drop capital gains from the current 50% inclusion rate, down to 0%.
If that happens, asset prices would rise as lower taxation increases demand.
And the Loonie would become stronger allowing Canadians to invest globally for cheaper. 🙂
Alas, historically speaking Purple has never gotten more than 2% of the votes in my area. So I would be wasting my time going to the polls. My electoral district has always voted strongly for team Orange. So unlike before, I’m going to sit this election out.
I’m responsible for my own life, not someone else
I shouldn’t depend on others, or feel like they owe me something.
Why give that power to someone else when I could hold onto it myself?
So I don’t really care who wins the election.
The individual decisions I make on a daily basis are way more important.
The party leaders don’t even know me. They don’t care about my personal, daily problems. They are just strangers. I’m not trying to throw shade at anyone. It’s just a simple fact. The more I depend on giving power to someone else, the less efficacy I have over my own domain.
If the Liberals wins again, that’s cool. My net worth has grown by over $1 million since Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister in 2015. So more of the same isn’t bad. And if the Conservatives win then I’ll adapt to their new policies.
Talking about politics can be fun. But at the end of the day, nobody is going to help me get to where I want to go.
Nobody will give me permission to tackle large goals and test my limitations.
If I want to choose my own path through life I have to take responsibility for myself. 🙂
What can I do today that will give me more time tomorrow, regardless of the election outcome?
Here are some ideas…
- Believe I can create my own destiny.
- Commit to building a 7 figure liquid portfolio, not just want to have one.
- Focus on opportunities rather than obstacles.
- Associate with positive, successful people.
- Believe I am bigger than my problems.
- Value my time and choose to get paid based on results.
- Spend time to learn how to better manage my money.
