    Hi Dave - the GST was brought in to Canada to replace a hidden manfacturing tax. The manufacturing tax was much higher (12% or more), but few people knew about it. The GST is going down to 5% and it is clearly visible, which means governments cannot raise it quietly without anyone noticing. No one likes taxes, but I prefer this type over the previous.

    I don't know if you have a hidden manufacturers tax in the US, or any other hidden federal taxes.

    A what?

    Why, no, we have no taxes. Life is good here. We can just do what we want whenever we want. When I need to go out somewhere I just take what ever vehicle is closest. My kids only go to the best schools and they don't cost a thing because the teachers all work for free.

    Oh, sorry, I'm dreaming again.
