Why Benghazi is so important, is exactly why getting to the bottom of the IRS Scandal is so important, just like knowing exactly how much the NSA is spying on its citizens is no less important than knowing what gave Eric Holder’s Justice Department the RIGHT to surveil journalists like James Rosen of FOX News.
It’s CRITICALLY important for the people to KNOW . . . because if the citizens of a nation cannot trust its leaders – defined not just by its FREEDOMS in name ONLY, but by REAL FREEDOMS the government EMBRACES and DEFENDS, then the nation is hardly what we think it is.
1 – Spies on its own citizens through technology . . . NSA.
2 – Ignores the FIRST Amendment by INTIMIDATING the Media.
3 – Discards it’s own laws (Fast and Furious) by refusing to investigate.
4 – Uses the IRS to punish legitimate social and political opposition.
5 – Refuses to testify at Congressional Hearings, or takes the FIFTH.
I can write pages about these attacks on FREEDOMS in the USA, and pages more on FREEDOMS under attack in Canada – but why bother, when the known list would be so long.
If the degree to our FREEDOM is decided not by an INCONTESTABLE Charter of Rights and FREEDOMS, beyond the grasp and influence of government . . . then the only FREEDOMS we will have . . . will be decided NOT by an INCONTROVERTIBLE Constitution, but by the whim of Bureaucrats and Politically Appointed Courts. And that is where we are finding ourselves today.
I am personally engaged in a life-changing decision, based upon the battles I’ve fought for others, so we could all be FREE from draconian government decisions that play FAST and LOOSE with everyone’s FREEDOMS, which all too many people take for granted.
The PRICE that Anne and I will soon be paying over the very next short while is not a price I would wish on any decent person. But, it is indeed something that I walked into with both eyes wide open.
Very few people in my position would write about the challenges that lay ahead for Anne and myself, because they are quite personal in nature, but, just as I decided to write about my MINI-STROKE a few months ago, because my experience had REAL value to the visitors of this Website, I will also write about the coming challenge, because it will be a message that none of us should ignore.
In 1997, I commissioned a talented friend, Noah Salzman, who wrote and produced a short song for QPAC (Quebec Political Action Committee), the NON PROFIT Corporation I founded prior to Galganov.com, with which to fight, for all our worth, against Linguistically RACIST language laws within Quebec.
THE MEANING OF THIS SONG: Don’t let silence be the voice of FREEDOM, applies as much today . . . as it did all those years ago.
IN THE MEANTIME . . . pay attention to what our governments do and say. Don’t take the words of any politician for granted. And don’t think for a second, that the judiciary is on the side of unabashed FREEDOM. And be suspect of the Media.
AND REMEMBER THIS . . . your FREEDOMS begin and end at your own doorstep, and are only as strong or as weak as is your resolve to be FREE.
