Anne & I Are Not Americans . . . Not because that’s a Personal Choice, but rather, it’s because of American Immigration Laws . . . But whether we are Americans or Not Americans, does not Mitigate our Desire to enjoy the same FREEDOMS in Canada, which are Enjoyed by the American People, through their Incredible Bill Of Rights & Constitution.
THEREFORE . . . When Anne & I hear of attacks on the very Foundation of the American Dream, such as the Never-Ending Assault on the American Second Amendment, through Nefarious & Unscrupulous attempts to Demean & Parse the very Fabric of the American Right To Bear Arms as was Written some 250-Years Ago – Both of us become more Disheartened, Aggravated & Angered Than Just Somewhat.
Since the End of the Second World War . . . Canada has been on a Continuous & Uninterrupted Slide to the Socialist LEFT, to the Point, that our Politicians, Educators & Unions have been trying to Align Canada more closely with the Europeans, than with the United States of America.
OUR CANADIAN POLITICIANS & BUREAUCRATS . . . will Refute what I just wrote, which is Meaningless to me, since our Politicians & Bureaucrats over Generations have Developed an Incredible Expertise & Talent in Refuting all Manner of the Truth.
Canada’s Constitution has NO GUARANTEE for Unassailable Individual Rights. In Truth & Fact, Canada’s Constitution is all about Guaranteeing the Rights & Freedoms of the Government & Majorities, with Nothing more than a SHAM-SUPPORT for the Rights of the Individual . . . all the way to Canada’s Freedom Of Expression, which by all American Standards is Anything But Free.
Without the American Influence Pervading our Canadian Culture . . . There is no Doubt in my Mind, none whatsoever, that Canada would far more Resemble the Failed European Continent . . . THAN IT DOES THE UBER SUCCESSFUL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
And ONLY because of the USA, and the Influence of the American Bill of Rights & Constitution, does Canada Restrain itself from Running Roughshod Upon all Individual Rights.
In Essence . . . Canada’s “Constitution” is a Rambling Document, which was Created by Lawyers, to be Interpreted by Judges, who are in Themselves Lawyers, who are Self-Empowered to Decide upon WHICH FREEDOMS Canadians Can and Cannot Fully Enjoy.
If We Don’t Like Government Impositions Upon Our Core Freedoms, And Have No Means Of Bringing The Government to Heel . . . What’s Our Redress?
Every American Constitutional Amendment Numbering TWENTY-SEVEN Is Important . . . BUT WITHOUT THE 2ND AMENDMENT, None of the other 26-Amendments Would Really Matter. Therefore – What Does That Say About The 2nd Amendment?
Anne & I Joined The NRA Several Years Ago . . . and this Year, as our Memberships were up for Renewal, we were Lax, and more or less Decided, that because of our Draconian Canadian Firearm Laws . . . The NRA Has No Canadian Standing Or Influence . . . AND WE WEREN’T IN A RUSH TO SPEND THE $40 EACH TO RENEW . . . And then the High School Shooting Happened in Florida.
To Read, Hear & Watch . . . in the Mainstream Media – the NRA being Blamed for the Florida High School Shooting . . . “Triggered” my Long-Held Belief, That Our Vulnerability Is Not Predicated In The Truth . . . BUT RATHER IN THE LIES.
IT ALSO REMINDED ME . . . That without a Strong & Free America, with all American Constitutional Laws – Sharing our Common 49th-Parallel, and our Remaining but Diminishing Sense of National Values – WE AS CANADIANS WOULD BE DOOMED.
The Easy Answer In This Context . . . Was To Renew Our Memberships In The NRA!
EVERY AMERICAN & CANADIAN . . . Whether you own a Gun or Not. Whether you Shoot of Not. Whether you have an Inclination to Get a Gun or Not . . . SHOULD JOIN THE NRA, which is Something we can all do . . . To Show Our Support For Real Freedoms.
Just Go Online . . . It’s $40 USD & It’s A Piece Of Cake To Do.
And as for all the Companies which have Announced their Boycott of the NRA . . . Boycotts Work Both Ways.
PS – In My Next Editorial . . . I’ll Offer The USA A Deal They Should Not Refuse.
