Well, here's the thing, you're either all in or all out. Very little is accomplished by straddling causes and by providing bandaid solutions. Eventually, the time comes when real answers and real solutions must be offered.

countries actually waste more money by doing the absolute minimum

sure it's great to have all the things you just listed, but if we do raise taxes by that much, it will lead to a contraction because people will have less to spend, thus will consume less, reducing aggregate demand, and plunging the economy into a recession that (depending on the extent of the things you pointed out) could be worse than the one we saw in 2008.

its not as simple as 1,2,3
instead of doing this I would like to see natural resources nationalized. I'm a free market guy but I always believed that the resources within your country should be used to fund government programs.

I also think there should be no federal income tax and only consumption taxes. but thats another story.

at first I thought there's no way in hell mars one happens. but now it's seeming more and more likely. I thought the first issue would be getting qualified volunteers. but I guess people would risk it all for a chance like this.

I still have strong doubts it will happen

In the wake of a dramatic RCMP reveal of two people arrested in Canada in connection with a plot to derail a passenger train, Canadians may have questioned why the United States Department of Homeland Security and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation were involved in the operation.

Those who have followed the quiet evolution of Canada-US cross-border policing, however, weren’t surprised. Law enforcement agencies in Canada and the US are now working together in an unprecedented way, says the RCMP—and the two countries are hammering out a plan to let agents in both countries drive back and forth across the border as though it wasn’t there.
