JEFFERSON . . . AS MUCH TODAY AS YESTERDAY

THOMAS JEFFERSON . . . “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

THE LEFT IS NOT JUST DESTROYING AMERICA:

I recently read a chilling report on the economy and future of the Canadian Province of Ontario, where Anne and I call home.

Because of successive LIBERAL governments, Ontario, which not more than a decade ago used to be the financial and manufacturing engine of Canada, has all but become an albatross around the neck of the rest of the country.

LEFTIST Provincial governments have squandered vast fortunes of Ontario's tax base on the altar of socialism, that is in itself failing miserably, because there simply isn’t sufficient revenue from the MAKERS to carry the weight of the TAKERS.

Ontario’s INSANE drive to make this Canadian Province the GREENEST place on earth, has created an energy CRISIS in cost, that has placed normal energy requirements out of reach for MOST people.

Not more than several weeks ago, Anne and I received a letter in the mail from the Provincial Electricity Office, as did every other Ontario resident that uses electricity, that implores us NOT TO PANIC when we receive our adjusted energy bill, because it is going to be devastatingly (my word) expensive.

WHO EVER ELECTED ANY GOVERNMENT TO DROWN THE PEOPLE IN DEBT?

How did Ontario, in just ten years, go from being the economic engine of Canada to a failed and grossly indebted national disgrace?

In the fewest words possible . . . it was because the people of Ontario were STUPID enough to elect and reelect incompetent LEFTIST jackasses, who utterly harmed the elderly and those on minimal fixed incomes, who can no longer afford to heat and air-condition their homes and still enjoy a normal lifestyle.

When you expect something-for-nothing . . . inevitably you get NOTHING.

BECAUSE STUPID PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE . . . businesses in Ontario find it hard if not impossible to turn a profit, so new businesses are not being formed, old businesses are just hanging-on, and just about no one is creating jobs.

Because LEFTISTS love to REGULATE, everything in Ontario is going through the roof in terms of costs, because someone has to pay the bureaucrats who regulate. And for every regulation – the costs are in far more ways than just one . . . astronomical.

THOMAS JEFFERSON . . . “Most bad government has grown out of too much government.”

IT SIMPLY DOESN’T MATTER WHERE:

It doesn’t matter if it’s in America or Canada. It doesn’t matter if it’s in California or Ontario. What matters is that the government has grown too big.

FAR TOO BIG:

It matters only that the number of people who have their hand out . . . outnumber the people who have their hands occupied by labor. It matters that the politicians use the money of the MAKERS to BUY the votes of the TAKERS.

It matters that huge businesses acknowledged by the politicians that are TOO BIG TO FAIL, have become a cancer upon the FREEDOM of competition, protected by LABOR and GOVERNMENT . . . also deemed TOO BIG TO FAIL.

WHAT MATTERS – is that we’ve crossed the RUBICON . . . the point to no return, where nothing short of insurrection of one type or another will right the wrong.

There is no longer a political solution, since EVERY politician with the exception of a rare few are corrupt on power, a bloated political salary, and perks they will never surrender, and will defend by passing onerous laws at all and at any cost.

THOMAS JEFFERSON . . . The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.

I always marveled at the history of revolution . . . at how ordinary people rose against impossible odds to overthrow TYRANNIES. At how governments surrounded by political barricades of their own making, which seemed impenetrable, eventually fell to the will of the people.

I’m certain that then . . . much like now, regardless of the epoch, whether it was the revolution that forced John, the all powerful King of England in 1215 at Runnymede to accept and sign the Magna Carta . . . or the ELITISTS in Revolutionary France, who never expected a date with the GUILLOTINE, who fell in a time of TERROR that spanned a decade from 1789 to 1799.

REVOLUTIONS ARE NOT PLANNED . . . they just happen. LEADERS are neither grown nor elected . . . THEY RISE FROM THE MASSES.

THOMAS JEFFERSON . . . “And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

A FLICKER OF THINGS TO COME:

This past week, we saw a spark of INSURRECTION in Nevada, when cattle ranchers and people who had nothing whatsoever to do with cattle, took to the hills in cars, pick-up trucks, on foot and on horseback, armed with holstered handguns, AR 15’s slung across their shoulders, and sniper positions on overpasses taking aim at armed Federal Rangers.

THOMAS JEFFERSON . . . “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Make no mistake about it . . . this Nevada INSURRECTION had very little to do with cattle and grazing rights, as it had EVERYTHING to do with a population of MAKERS who’ve had more than enough with a government, which has forgotten who serves whom.

The government retreated from the standoff, NOT because as they stated; that they feared for the safety of the people . . . but rather, because of its FEAR FROM THE PEOPLE.

I see no exit from the decline of our countries (America and Canada) for THREE reasons:

1 – We are served in all Parties by the worst politicians one can imagine in this day and age.

2 – The TAKERS outnumber the MAKERS.

3 – The electorate is either too uninformed and/or too STUPID to vote.

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF . . . AND DESTINY CANNOT BE DENIED.

What we saw in Nevada was nothing more, and nothing less than a peek into the future.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

YOUR COMMENTS:

I have seen for years that this country was approaching the point-of-no-return. God ordained this country. And started with a spark of Paul Revere at Concord, MA. I pray that God will re-ordains this country. And there need to be another 'spark' ! My only question is, will the people, this entire country, truly and morally be ready for this?

Socialism creep stems from millions of eager citizens unable to find employment, including thousands of graduated students. People with money and banks with loads of money cannot find places to invest the funds. What new product or service, that is products that as to date do not exist, can anyone suggest to invest ten million dollars. What product or service can you name that does not exist in full abundance. Factories have enough reserve capacity to meet demand. bmcgillis@shaw.ca

Dead on, Howard. The totalitarian tyranny of the Left is nowhere more evident than it is in scandal-ridden Ontario. We have an "unelected" Premier who refuses to submit to an election because she fears that even the support of her Big Union and low information urban supporters won't be enough to win an election. She is constantly looking for new "revenue tools" - the rest of us call them taxes - so she can take wealth from the workers in order to give it to the takers. God help us all.

Very respectfully, you are so totally dogmatically wrong ... such utter drivel ... the problem we (US, Canada et al) have is "big money", is not contributing their fair share ... they "buy" the politicians to pass the laws that favour themselves ... "big money" more correctly are the "takers" (how else can the 1% own more than millions of honest hardworking folks); big money at best is unjust, if not illegal ... certainly immoral ... for the facts = http://robertreich.org

Hi Howard, I never thought that the situation in Canada and America could stoop to such a low point. Your affluent Liberal Left have caused the situation similar to the situation in South Africa. The government and their sycophantic, illiterate, uneducated and bombastic followers have brought the "powerhouse of Africa" {South Africa}, to a third world status. Even Nigeria has overtaken South Africa as a country that motor manufacturers would like to invest in, rather than in South Africa. Joh

Right on Howard, esp about people being "too stupid" to know how to vote. Proportional voting is the only way to fix the "system". Until then the idiots will rule. Ken Oldfield, Belgium

Howard Sir ,Sometimes your writings ARE genius . I love this editorial . Its so correct , thoughtful ,informative And very interesting for any number of reasons . Your good at this , very good, I believe you've seen so much that this picture fits the place we are in today . Although , I do believe Canada stupidly self destructed ,Its just that the US was invaded with the help of some of THE stupidest & dangerously sick Communist Democrats . I do believe your so right, we WILL overcome .

What is becoming apparent to us is that they created a master plan years ago that is working for them. Generation by generation they place school teachers to influence the children and it gradually changes attitudes and what is accepted over long periods of time. Actually the agenda of the American communist party, according to a long article in Barrons about 1968, was years ahead of schedule. The UN and Agenda 21 is a tremendous threat to individualism and personal responsibility.

Nevada may be the first salvo in our next American Revolution. Do not think that the Government backed down. They just made a calculated retreat. The next time, whether in Nevada or somewhere else, shots will be fired. Then it will be time for law enforcement and the military to remember that the took an oath to uphold the Constitution. And for Americans to stand up and take back our country.

NA is the only stable place on earth . NA is the only safe place on earth ,( from true tyranny) and it is no longer acceptable to the rest of the world . It starts with the UN trying to bring "equality" to the rest . It continues with the planning , plotting and restrictions ( like gun control ) to ensure there can be no uprising , as you describe. Yes the stupid do get to vote, for all the wrong reasons. But this is a plan , not an accident or a slow deterioration we cannot explain.

Nevada could be the seeds for a Civil War. The American Hunters are the largest armed Army in the World. The "Administration" should tread lightly. Japan stopped at Pearl Harbor for this reason.

Yesterday the Ontario Liberal goverment paid the wind energy business $115 mwh for surplus power which we have to pay for , then sold it to to the American market for $25 mwh, Ontario is the only province/state that charges HST, delivery, and regulatory fees on electricity. Our hydro rates increase every May and October to pay for the Liberal energy policy. www.windontario.ca

Howard, I'm busy preparing for a Seder, and told my FB friends I was off till tomorrow. After reading your commentary, I am sending it out immediately cannot wait till tomorrow, as you are so forthcoming, and explicit and truthful, I cannot wait. Thank you friend for a Stellar commentary I have said it many times and will repeat again "i don't know what we would do without you"! Shirley Friedman -California

I worry, that the "Uprising" War will come to the USA. "We The People" DO need to quit being lazy and look around, to see what is really going on, with our "political hacks", that we call Politicians. Overall, these individuals are robbing the future, with their perceived entitlement to "power" and the "perpetual" hold, on their offices. Balanced Budgets must be the 28th Amendment, in the United States, for the good of the whole.

evidently, the liberals learned nothing from the collapse of Russia and communisim. It doesn't work. The United States monetary system is on the brink of disaster, Obama and his commies are spending 200Million a day more then they are taking in. Liberalism, socialism and Communisim, all are the same. It just doesn't work, and has been proven throughout the centuries. Unfortunatly, Canada has the same problem as the U.S. To many politicians running around with their Heads buried in their rear

It's more than that...it's also about the corruption in Nevada and the BLM. It's time to take that action to Washington, D.C. and throw out all of the corrupt congressmen and senators. See this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HFiosLqjoQQ

I am afraid. For my family, my children, my grandchildren, my friends. I am afraid that before my time comes I will be forced to take sides. I will be forced into a situation not of my making but one of my fixing. I will be placed in a position to make decisions forced upon me for survival that not for anything else I would not comtemplate. I am afraid. I vote in every election. I campaign for those I beleive in. I have run for political office. I work to make a difference. I am afraid.

We, as people, have a "love/hate" relationship with freedom, and liberty. We get it, we fight for it, we prosper, and then,.....we get lazy! We did our part, and when somebody says, "...sure, you're right let us give you calm, let us give you peace and tranquility, let us PROVIDE you with the prosperity you so richly deserve after all your efforts." (Reminds me of 'Little Red Ridinghood") There is no vacation from freedom OR liberty! It is a total life voyage to maintain liberty!!
