87% of the people who read Galganov.com are Americans, with more Canadians signing-on every day. And even though this Editorial is partly about Canada, you might want to read it, because essentially, our two countries are not that dissimilar. And our Canadian Present might become your American Future.
ALSO . . . if the USA chooses the wrong President this coming November, what is currently happening to Canada, will certainly be a look into the future of America.
Fort McMurray . . . for the longest time – has been the HEART of Alberta’s Oil Industry, which hasn’t just powered Canada’s Main Prairie Province, but has carried all of Canada on its shoulders with the wealth that has come out of, and off of their Prairie Ground.
And now the Entire City . . . and Greater Area is aflame, with as many as 80,000-People being forced out of their homes, businesses and farms, abandoning their livestock, Horses, and in many cases their Pets.
I’m not going to point any fingers at anyone for the cause of the fire, but I am going to state that the Albertan People, who were absolutely FED-UP with their own RINOS, who completely Screwed-Up the fabulously wealthy Albertan Economy and Social Fabric, threw out the Phony, CORRUPT, and Incompetent Conservatives by staying home, instead of voting for a real alternative, giving a FREE PATH for Socialists to take over the Province.
Rachel Notley . . . the Socialist NDP (New Democratic Party) leader, who was elected about a year ago (May 24, 2015), has so screwed-up the Economy and Social Fabric in Alberta, by lavishing upon LEFTIST causes at the expense of the Province, that I can’t imagine where Alberta will get the money to rebuild Fort McMurray, which as far as I know to date, will be all but wiped-out, once the flames are extinguished.
Saskatchewan is a Western Canadian Province awash with Oil, Wheat, Cattle and Potash, governed by a REAL Conservative Party, which doesn’t define itself as one of the three Major Canadian Parties.
Saskatchewan’s Premiere (akin to Governor), Brad Wall, is Stupendous at the job, yet, he could never become the Prime Minister of Canada, even though he would be fabulous at it, because he CANNOT SPEAK FRENCH, even though Canada, with the exception of the Ethnocentric French Province of Quebec, where the UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS AGAINST THE LAW . . . is 97% English Speaking.
And that’s because of Tyranny of a CONCENTRATED Political Minority.
Like the USA . . . Canada used to have a tremendous manufacturing base, until we entered into Trade Agreements that disadvantaged our own Country, by encouraging our Manufacturers to become Importers.
And then with the Unions wielding enormous Political Clout, we priced ourselves out of competition, only to be smacked-down again by SUFFOCATING Rules and Regulations that DISCOURAGED investment and growth.
You know when things are upside-down . . . when a Province or a State, has to pay a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY like the Auto Industry to stay in place, by financing new and expanded factories, because that’s not growth, that’s only RIPPING-OFF the Taxpayers.
I SAID IT UMPTEEN TIMES . . . and I’ll say it again – Trump wasn’t even close to being my FIRST CHOICE. And in the very end, between Trump and Cruz, Cruz was my preference, but the people have spoken and the DEAL IS DONE, so everyone has two choices – TRUMP OR CLINTON.
I’m not interested in refighting the Nomination Debates and the harsh words and hard language. I don’t care who lied and who insulted whom. I don’t care that Trump paid off politicians in his private life. And I couldn’t give a Rat’s Ass that Trump supported Democrats in the past.
AND THIS MIGHT BE A REAL SHOCKER . . . But I don’t even care that Trump doesn’t consider himself by definition a Conservative, since past Republican Presidents like the Bush’s and Speakers of the House like Boehner called themselves Conservatives too. And if those men were really Conservatives, DEAL ME OUT.
Will Trump end Unfair International Trade? Will he really close the Borders to smuggling and ILLEGAL Immigration? Will Trump rebuild the American Military to the point of Ultimate World Power Status? And will he authorize his military to kick the Holy-Crap out of ISIS with real RULES OF ENGAGEMENT that don’t coddle the enemy?
Will Trump guarantee the SECOND AMENDMENT? Will he FIRE useless Bureaucrats and throw insane REGULATIONS onto the Trash Heap of History? And will he REALLY appoint Conservative Judges to the Supreme Court?
And will he end and replace Obamacare?
That’s all I care about. I don’t care how many times he’s been married. I don’t care if he uses foul language and insults his opponents. I don’t care if he’s religious or not, since I know far too many religious men and women who are nothing but hypocrites.
I don’t care if he’s accepting of Gays and Gay Marriages, and thinks that some aspects of Planned Parenthood are worth keeping. And I don’t care if he’s a Narcissist.
I don’t even care if some of the RINOS love him. I DON’T CARE . . . as long as he keeps the CORE PROMISES he made to the United States of America during the Nomination Campaign, once he becomes the President of the USA and Commander-In-Chief of the Greatest Military that has ever existed.
AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU . . . because it’s either Trump with all the flaws, the warts and all, or it’s Hillary Clinton, who will turn the USA into Canada, on the way to a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, where you can throw your American Dream into the Garbage.
As a Canadian . . . the Political and Social Future of the USA is the only hope we in Canada have for our own future, because if you go down, there will never be a chance short of Civil War, for us to come back from when we were once-upon-a-time a GREAT country too.
JUST AS FORT MCMURRAY HAS BURNT DOWN WITH NO MONEY TO REBUILD . . . that is what will happen to the USA, if America has to endure just four more years of an extension of an Obama Presidency through Hillary Clinton. America will become as good as burnt to the ground
ASK YOURSELF THIS . . . Is my disdain for Trump’s Past and Attitude worth the end of the American Dream?
