Canada and the USA have to get back to REAL Conservative VALUES, and we must not be frightened by the empty and vitriolic words of the LEFT. Or buy into an empty suit. AND WE HAVE TO ELECT GOOD LEADERS.
JUST BECAUSE THE LEFT . . . says that we Conservatives are at war with Women, the Elderly, Gays and Lesbians, the Infirmed, the Poor, and every one else they can squeeze into their narrative . . . doesn’t make it so.
IN FACT . . . let it be known, that there is indeed a REAL WAR on all of us, declared ignominiously by the LEFT upon all of our FREEDOMS. And as in every war, we cannot win if we don’t fight back . . . SO LET’S START.
THEY NEED US . . . the LEFT needs our energy, entrepreneurship, hard work and willingness to take personal risks, so they could benefit from all of that we, the MAKERS provide for them, which they are incapable of providing for themselves.
But now . . . the RIDE is coming to an end for the LEFT, and perhaps for all of us.
I imagine, that everyone reading this BLOG knows the parable: DON’T KILL THE GOOSE THAT LAYS THE GOLDEN EGG, because the GOOSE in this story is us, the MAKERS, who are now living on LIFE SUPPORT.
In AYN RAND’S classic and iconic book – Atlas Shrugged . . . she wrote about total DYSTOPIA (collapse of society) after the MAKERS decided to call it quits, and left the development of society to the politicians, bureaucrats, unions and REGULATORS.
In effect, Ayn Rand’s book, which was written in the 1950’s was a warning, which has become prophetic, much like George Orwell’s CLASSICS . . . 1984 and ANIMAL FARM, which too were prescient.
We’re at the RUBICON, the point of no return, where there is very little money LEFT to squeeze from the MAKERS, especially since the people who survive and thrive on the efforts and risks of those who are willing to roll the dice, are being smothered by the suffocating RULES AND REGULATIONS from the LEFT.
The KUMBAYA world of the LEFT is unsustainable, and is becoming even more so every day, until sooner rather than later, the wheel will stop turning, because there will be less money available to grease the wheel, and fewer people to create the money . . . than there will be people with their hands out.
If the MAKERS stopped paying taxes tomorrow . . . for things we decided we didn’t need or want from government, very little would change in our lives, other than having MORE of OUR disposable money in our OWN pockets.
AND THAT’S THE RUB . . . we don’t need people who take our wealth for very little purpose, other than to feed off the success, risk and hard work of the MAKERS.
And for the Public Sector we would need, we would pay them just like any other employee in a competitive environment, based on need and competence. And if they didn’t like it, they could start their own business or work somewhere else.
IN ESSENCE . . . with the exception of specific Public Sector Workers, THEY NEED US . . . WE DO NOT NEED THEM. So in my world, they can take their bloated salaries, ridiculously LEFTIST working conditions, unfair and stupid guarantees for employment no matter how incompetent they are, and their OBSCENE PUBLIC PENSIONS and SHOVE IT.
And anyone on the LEFT . . . or a RINO, who will argue that our relationship between MAKERS and TAKERS is SYMBIOTIC, and that we need each other, is full of CRAP.
Our culture has created a society of HANGERS-ON, men and women who have lost the ability to compete and stand on their own feet.
Give a man a fish and he will eat today. Give him a fishing rod and he will eat everyday.
Our LEFTIST governments and BUREAUCRATS have taken away the fishing rods. And now, most people have to depend on the government to eat. And when the LEFT runs out of fish . . . you can figure out the rest.
IN MY LIFE . . . I have physically built my own home. I can build almost anything. I have farmed my own fields and tended to my own tractors and assorted equipment.
I have lived in the Northern Canadian Bush under the stars. I have fought in karate tournaments. I’m a decent shooter with handguns, carbines and rifles. I was a Life Guard and First Aid Instructor. I can ride, raise and train horses. And I feel FREE on my Motorcycle.
I’ve saved several individual lives at different venues, while others just stood by and watched. As it is written in the TALMUD: “whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world”.
I have fought for the RIGHTS of the truly disenfranchised, and started a program that led to feeding hot meals once daily everyday, to THOUSANDS of hungry school children regardless of their ethnicity. And I’ve used my Radio Show to feed and shelter hundreds of the hungry and homeless.
I have raised millions of dollars championing the RIGHTS of women not to be abused by their husbands or boyfriends, and provided 1,000 Hotel Room-Nights with meals and security for women and their children, who needed shelter and had nowhere to turn.
I have always been an advocate of Animal RIGHTS, and risked my life on the ice flows of the Atlantic Ocean 30-miles from Prince Edward Island, to stop the Barbaric Seal Hunt. And have gone to the mat MORE times than I can count for our FREEDOMS. And no matter how many times I’ve been knocked down and beaten-up in business, and in my personal life . . . I NEVER GIVE UP – and I always come back.
AND I’VE PAID MILLIONS IN SALARIES . . . to the hundreds of people I’ve employed over my lifetime, in businesses I started, owned and managed. AND I NEVER ASKED ANY GOVERNMENT FOR ANYTHING, other than to stay out of my life and leave me alone.
If Anne and I had to survive with only the basics of life (food, shelter and protection), we could survive well without turning to anyone. And that is something the vast majority of the LEFT could never do . . . AND NEVER UNDERSTAND.
AND THIS IS WHY SOME OF YOU WILL BE UPSET . . . when I write in my next editorial, why TRUMP is not the guy. And why Cruz, Carson, Fiorina and possibly Scott Walker amongst a few others can all measure-up.
So, before you start dumping on me . . . wait for the next editorial.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
