For those of you who regularly read my editorials, you will know several things about me. But, before you read on, please understand that this year might be the year of the beginning of National Redemption . . . bringing forth the effective end of the North American LEFT.
The ONLY Constant that I see for our national hope and salvation, whether one is religious or not, Jewish or Christian . . . is the kind of HOPE available to us, as is presented by the values by Conservative Judeo/Christian Ethos. And possess a great deal of respect for True Believers who express their beliefs through doing good work for others.
As more than TWO BILLION Christians believe, and if nothing else to Conservative non-believers . . . the Scriptures are indeed the mirror to the past and the roadmap to the future.
1 – I am Jewish and VERY Pro-Israel.
2 – I studied partially at a Rabbinical College with the thoughts of perhaps becoming a Rabbi. But my foundational religious teachings were at a public Protestant school from grade one to the end of high school, where I learned a great deal about Christianity.
3 – Over the years I’ve changed, rendering me a far less religious person than when I was a younger man. Nonetheless though, I am still very culturally Jewish, with great pride in the history and morality of my culture’s religious teachings and human successes.
4 – I’ve made the journey from being a Liberal, to becoming VERY Constitutionally and Fiscally Conservative. I think I might be somewhat of a Libertarian.
5 – I am an UNAPOLOGETIC supporter and defender of Individual Rights. And I have zero tolerance for individuals, groups, and governments who believe that it is somehow their right to tell others how others should live, and how much money others must surrender to the government, for government to spread around as government see fit.
6 – I have what could be described as an unhealthy dislike for the LEFT, and an even greater sense of derision for Elitist Limousine Liberals and especially the Hollywood types, who live like Kings and Queens, while “earning” obscene amounts of money by pretending on camera, while they eviscerate hard workers who’ve made their wealth by actually building things, fixing things, and/or providing real services.
7 – I look at FAR TOO MANY of the politicians who “run-things” from Town Councils to the White House, as enemies from within the State, for their lack of competence, honesty, and integrity, while enjoying excessive portions of personal greed.
8 – And I sincerely believe, that because of the LEFT and our politicians, our countries; more America than Canada, only because Canada has a smaller population (35 million), and has a slightly different culture, will both much sooner rather than later (perhaps before the end of 2014) . . . collapse into social and fiscal disaster under their own mismanaged weight.
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS:
The greatest documents of FREEDOM known to modern times, were written less than 250 years ago, and whether anyone cares to believe it or not . . . these treasures that became the collective yardstick to global FREEDOM have for the last two centuries been preserved by men and women of Conservative FAITH.
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE:
On July 4, 1776, the PEOPLE . . . not the government, since there was no American Government at that time, took it upon themselves under the ROOF of God to declare their Independence from the British Empire, which ruled as an autocracy, even as a Parliamentary Democracy under the rule of a King appointed by Devine RIGHT.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
On September 17, 1787 . . . the American people adopted a mechanism of governance that created a system, whereby the government of the people will be one of the people, by the people and for the people, where GOVERNMENTS would be restricted and denied the right to govern the people beyond their explicit mandate.
THE BILL OF RIGHTS:
On December 15, 1791 . . . the American people finished their incredible creation of FREEDOM with their first TEN AMENDMENTS through the Declaration of Rights, which guaranteed the following:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner; nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself; nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of common law.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
THE PRECEDING THREE DOCUMENTS ARE WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT:
THE MODERN GREAT AMERICAN TRAGEDY HOWEVER . . . is that the documents in the foregoing, have either been taken for granted by the majority of the people, forgotten, never learned, or have been twisted by elitists and revisionists to mean something other, if not indeed the opposite to what was their original purpose and intent.
But . . . there are true American Conservative Patriots, who, far more than the masses of today, are believers in the message and meaning of the Founding Fathers when they wrote as part of the Declaration of Independence . . .
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness . . .”
WHAT WE OWE MOSTLY TO CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES:
The FUTURE of not just the United States of America, but of the entire world through America – is being held tightly in the hands of people, mostly those within the Judeo/Christian Faith in Conservative Values, and many Conservatives like me . . . who after the LEFT exhausts itself and those who’ve chosen to worship their own false idols, will be saved by a return to the FREEDOMS promised by a people almost two and a half centuries ago, guarded mostly by religious Conservative SENTINELS . . . NEVER TO BE SURRENDERED.
My gratitude to the people who embrace Modern Christian Conservative American Religious Values is a reason for a Jewish Person like me, to wish all of my many close and dear Conservative Christian Friends an extremely warm and heartfelt MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Because of them . . . the future will belong to us.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
