Now That Justin Trudeau . . . Canada’s Dilettante Prime Minister, has Demonstrated Beyond Doubt, that he’s More than just a Little-Bit-Late – Coming To The Socialist Party . . . Since by every Measure . . . Socialism is a Failed Philosophy . . . which is leaving Canada out there Hanging on the Vine, Swinging Aimlessly in the Winds of Political Time – Without a Clue as what to do Next.
Great For America – Great For Canadians Like Me.
AMERICA NEEDS IMMIGRANTS . . . so says the American LEFT and the RIGHT. President Trump wants Immigrants who are Educated, Talented, Skilled, Honest, Self-Sufficient & Law Abiding, who can Speak English, and know something about the USA – But NOT NECESSARILY Immigrants who want to Become American Citizens.
At any Given Time . . . as many as (And More Than) 1-Million Canadians are in the United States of America, many of whom own Homes & Condos or live in Expensive RV’s.
But Without Green Cards – The Maximum Time a Canadian Citizen can Legally stay in the USA IS 180-DAYS (Running Time) ON THE ENTIRE YEAR.
AS A RESULT . . . More than 1-Million Canadians Must By US Law – Abandon their Homes, Condos & RV’s, so as not to Violate their 6-Month US Immigration Status.
Even for Anne & Myself, who spend just under 6-Months In The USA (Texas) during the Winter, without being Big Spenders, and owning our own RV, we spend at a Minimum . . . $20,000 CANADIAN WHICH GOES TO THE US ECONOMY.
In Comparison To Most Canadians In America . . . We’re Small Potatoes.
Think about the Millions of Canadians who WOULD RUSH to Stay in the United States Year-Round, who QUALIFY 100% for President Trump’s MERIT BASED IMMIGRATION . . . And the Many Millions of Other Merit-Qualified Canadians who would Storm the Border, bringing their Canadian Money, Talents & Job Creation Abilities with them . . . WHERE’S THE DOWNSIDE TO AMERICA?
It’s not as if I’m suggesting that the United States of America Change its Immigration Laws, which already Prohibit Canadian Felons or Canadians with Felony Records to Cross into the United States . . .
Or for US Customs not to Demand Proper Canadian ID, such as Passports or NEXUS Cards, such as Anne and I Have.
In Essence . . . Nothing Would Change for the United States of America, other than the USA would VIRTUALLY . . . Overnight, Gain Several Million English Speaking Law Abiding Canadians, who would Demand NO SOCIAL SERVICES, Would Never Vote . . . WHO WOULD ONLY ADD TO THE VITALITY OF AMERICA.
And If Canadians Wanted US Citizenship . . . We Could Apply & Get In Line.
If This Proposal Had A Downside To Any Country . . . It would be to Canada, since there would be a Mad-Dash of Top Flight Canadian Citizens making a Mad-Dash for the USA. But that said . . . Canada could make the same Offer to Americans, who might think the Grass would be Greener on the Canadian Side.
The Problem With This Proposal Is That It’s Simple . . . ‘Cause It’s Simple.
I Worry a Great Deal when a Politician says things that Do Not Need To Be Said. Just like Politicians, who use far Too Many Words to Describe what should be Simple and Self Explanatory. Or who Give Names to Policies and Places which are otherwise Self-Contradictory (Oxymorons).
FOR EXAMPLE . . . When East Germany used to call itself The DDR – The Democratic Republic of Germany. There was NOTHING Democratic about East Germany before the Berlin Wall had Fallen. But, that’s what they called Themselves, which is how the World Chose to Refer to Their Big Lie.
Or how the Palestinians Bill Themselves as a “People” . . . but a People whom otherwise Never Existed, until Yasser Arafat and the Jew-Haters of the World Created them long after the RE-CREATION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
BUT I’M ESPECIALLY FEARFUL OF GOVERNMENT LEADERS . . . who INSIST by what they Call Democratic Principles, that they know WHAT IS BETTER FOR THE PEOPLE THEY ARE PURPORTEDLY TO SERVE, than do the People who the Government is Supposed to Answer to.
One Should NEVER Forget That Adolf Hitler Was Democratically Elected.
Hitler . . . Like all the other Really Bad Guys, pressed his reality that certain TEMPORARY Restrictions & Laws, and New Laws which would run Contrary to Individual Rights & Freedoms, under Certain Circumstances, are what is most Needed and Essential for the Good of the Whole . . . SO HITLER & OTHERS OF HIS ILK TOOK AWAY THE GUNS.
I watched the “Conversation” Between President Trump, Democrats & Republicans “Discussing” how they could make Schools Safer, mostly by somehow making Gun Ownership Safer.
Anne & I are Both Gun Owners, who enjoy Target & Action Shooting. We have Handguns & Carbines – And are quite good at Shooting. Many of our Friends are also Shooters in Canada and the United States, As Many In The USA Like To Carry.
And if Anne & I lived in a “Carry” State, and were Legally Allowed To Carry, we Mostly Probably Would, NOT BECAUSE WE FEEL THREATENED . . . But Rather – Because It’s A Unique RIGHT & FREEDOM That Separates The United States Of America From The Rest Of A Sick World.
Being Canadian Gun Owners . . . Anne and I – like all Canadian Gun Owners have had to Jump through Hoops to get our License to Buy & Own Guns. We had to take a COMPREHENSIVE Gun Ownership Course & Exam, and needed to Pass an INTRUSIVE Background Check.
And Once Canadians have their RPAL’S (Restricted Possession Acquisition License), we are FREE to purchase any Non-Prohibited-Gun. Prohibited Guns Include Automatic Rifles & Pistols, Handguns with a Barrel Length of 4” or less, and all Rifles with a Barrel Length Less than 18”.
I Have No Problem With Any Of That . . . Not even the part that requires all “Restricted” Guns, such as AR-15 Style Semi-Automatics to be Registered with the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).
But, where I am Disappointed in Canada’s Gun Laws . . . is the Draconian Manner our Guns have to be Stored and Transported . . . AND THAT NO CANADIANS CAN CARRY – Not Even Off Duty Police Officers.
ALSO IN CANADA . . . Gun Owners are always Waiting for the Shoe-To-Drop, when a Liberal (Socialist) Government will eventually Deem it ILLEGAL for all Canadians to Own Firearms, much like they’ve done throughout Most of Europe and all of Australia, since we in Canada have NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO OWN & BEAR ARMS.
So . . . While President Trump & Members of Congress, Especially Democrat & RINO Members of Congress Outwardly Express their LOVE for the 2nd Amendment, and some for their LOVE for the NRA . . . Remember This – Once You Place Just One Foot On The Slippery Slope, It’s Only The Beginning Of The Slide . . . BECAUSE THERE’S NO WAY BACK.
