Quotes About Mackenzie King

Were comfortable financially, so it wasnt a financial issue that I voted Conservative. Basically, it was for the same reason we voted for Diefenbaker. First it was Mackenzie King, then St. Laurent Christ, the Liberals were in something like 20 years in a row (22 actually) and we simply needed a change. It was getting like a dictatorship. Whether elected or not, thats not good for the country. I didnt go to war for a dictatorship.

It is easier to start taxes than to stop them. A tax an inch long can easily become a yard long. That has been the history of the income tax. Would not the sales tax be likely to have a similar history [in the U.S.]? ... Canadian newspapers report that an increase in the sales tax threatens to drive the Mackenzie King administration out of office. Canada began with a sales tax of 2% ... Starting this month the tax is 6%. The burden, in other words, has already been increased 200% ... What the U.S. needs is not new taxes, is not more taxes, but fewer and lower taxes.

— B.C. Forbes
