As I understand it . . . there is a slew of Hollywooders and Media Types who are declaring they will move to Canada if Trump becomes the President.
Where Anne, Stryker, April the Cat and I are staying at this great RV Resort in Austin Texas, there is an American Couple from the New York City Area, who greeted us when we arrived, asking what it would take for them to become Canadians, because they feared a Trump Presidency.
I looked at this LEFTIST New Yorker, and said without a nanosecond of hesitation, that Anne and I would be only too willing to switch Passports with them, HERE AND NOW, to which there was no response.
BUT I’M SERIOUS . . . Any American wanting to give up his or her citizenship, with an EVEN-UP trade for Canadian Citizenship – I would be only too happy to be the facilitator to make it happen.
And I can assure you of one thing . . . even though America has a population of about 320-MILLION People, while Canada has a population of about 35-MILLION People – THERE AREN’T ENOUGH AMERICANS TO EQUAL the number of Canadians who would probably be willing to make the exchange.
I know of no shortage of Canadians, Anne and Myself included, AND I REALLY MEAN NO SHORTAGE – who are seriously considering making an application to the US Immigration Department for a Permanent Visa – aka GREEN CARD, even at my age of 66-Years Old.
It’s not that we don’t like being Canadians, as much as we don’t LOVE being Canadians. Because, in the final analysis, it’s virtually impossible to point to one Canadian Attribute that inspires Patriotism.
YOU KNOW . . . WHEN YOU ASK A HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTER – to name just one Hilary Clinton Accomplishment in her entire Political Life, going all the way back to her term as First Lady of Arkansas, no one can name one.
THERE WAS A TIME . . . right up to the end of World War II, when Canada was touted as one of the ALL-TIME great Nations of the World, where Immigrants of REAL VALUE were clamoring to get-in and build a future. And now, we get the Dregs from the Arab/Moslem World, who want a FREE RIDE.
THERE WAS A TIME . . . when Canadian Entrepreneurs could Dream Big or Small, and have a real shot at making the Dream happen, because entrepreneurs weren’t suffocated with STIFLING Taxes and Criminal Regulations.
THERE WAS A TIME . . . when Canadians weren’t PUNISHED in a major Canadian Province (Quebec) for being English, where the Unrestricted Use Of The English Language Is AGAINST THE LAW.
And English Speaking Canadians throughout the rest of the Country, which number about 97% outside French Quebec, can’t get jobs in their own National Civil Service, which we English Speakers pay for, because very few English speakers outside of Quebec are Bilingual, or sufficiently Bilingual.
Since Liberalism SEIZED our Canadian Government, Media, Courts and Schools . . . right after WWII, the ONLY Canadian Accomplishment I and anyone could point to with a semblance of PRIDE was Canadian Healthcare, which included 9-Provinces, with a Separate sort of inclusion from Quebec.
AND NOW . . . several generations after the foundation of FREE CANADIAN HEALTHCARE, it’s starting to come apart.
1 – To see my Family Doctor, I would be lucky to get an appointment within a month.
2 – To get an MRI or CAT-Scan, a Canadian could wait months to a year for the procedure.
3 – To receive Non-Emergency Surgery, like a joint replacement, a Canadian could wait for YEARS for the procedure.
I go across the border to the USA, and pay CASH for immediate comprehensive service, and say thank God for America.
The only good part of the Canadian System, is that when you REALLY need Care, such as when I had the Mini-Stroke a couple of years ago, or when I needed Cancer Treatment about 22-years ago, I got great treatment at ZERO Personal Cost.
BUT THEN AGAIN . . . if you have to wait a month or more to see a Doctor, if you don’t want to sit in an Emergency Hospital Ward for HOURS on end, what good is FREE if the service is unavailable?
I’ll need a small surgery when Anne and I get home in the second week of April, which we’ve booked, and will have the procedure done by one of the best doctors in his field anywhere in Canada or the USA. But I’m paying for it, because, if I had to do this through the Public System, I could wait for years.
And the only reason I can do this privately in Canada, is because the government considers this procedure ELECTIVE, which I assure you . . . it is not.
If the security of FREE Healthcare is no longer what it used to be, what else is there to entice people like Anne and Myself to stay in Canada? It certainly isn’t the miserable weather, racist language laws, high taxes, suffocating regulations etc.
1 – Freedom of Expression in Canada is based upon what any Judge deems to be SUFFICIENT Freedom of Expression. In other words . . . there is no real equivalent to the American First Amendment in Canada.
2 – The Right to Bear Arms in Canada DOES NOT EXIST, meaning that there is no such thing as a Second Amendment in Canada.
The only future I can see for the country of my Birth, where my Canadian Born Mother served in the Armed Forces during WWII, and my Canadian Born Father served from Day One overseas, fighting in the name and colors of his country . . . Beyond the call Of Duty – IS NOT GOOD.
CANADA . . . which was once a country with UNBELIEVABLE Promise, where our Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier (1896-1911), STATED WITH FULL CONFIDENCE, that the TWENTIETH CENTURY will belong to Canada, would weep in indescribable sadness, in his grave to see what the LEFT has done to his dream.
AMERICANS ARE TERRIFIED . . . to know what will happen when TAKERS outnumber MAKERS.
So, if they want to see what happens . . . just look at Canada, where entrepreneurs are looking for the exit doors. Where more than half the people are looking at the government for as much FREE CRAP as they can get. Where Courts at all levels are deciding our Constitutional Rights as they deem fit . . . and BDS in Canadian Universities – the grossly Anti-Semitic Anti-Israel movement is leading the world of Jew Hatred.
SO . . . At the end of March, Anne and I will be heading home back to Ontario, where we will have a great deal to think about, because in Canada, in spite of government BS, things are not good, and show no signs of getting better.
BUT IN THE USA . . . if the Republicans win the Presidency, and hang onto the Senate and the House at the same time . . . Anne and I will want to be in the USA.
And if for whatever unfathomable reason, should Clinton should take the White House, and States like Texas should decide to leave the Republic as a result, we would be proud to Fly the Lone Star Flag as our own.
And for anyone who thinks that I‘m speaking only for myself . . . he, she, or they should think again, because an enormous number of Canadians have come to the same conclusion, that Canada for the time being has been lost to the LEFT, with virtually nothing on the horizon we could look towards for hope.
In all seriousness . . . I think Canada and the USA should make it 100% possible for each others’ CITIZENS, only those of whom, who can pass a comprehensive SECURITY check, to cross each others’ borders to live and work full-time without the right to Unearned Social Benefits.
And the only problem with this . . . would be that the Borders heading South, would be overwhelmed with Canadian MAKERS heading for opportunities. And like just about everyone wanting to grab a piece of the American Dream, I would happily wait my turn to breathe the FRESH AMERICAN AIR OF FREEDOM.
