I will NEVER get Rich Writing this BLOG, Speaking or Advocating . . . But I will Always feel Pride In What I Do.
You should Note that your Financial Support (if you can afford it) Gives Me Approbation.
Thank You For That . . . Personal Emails Of Gratitude Are Forthcoming.
NOW TO THE GUTS OF REALLY BAD GOVERNANCE FROM THE TOP DOWN:
As I see it . . . Constitutions are Created to Layout a Blueprint on the Overall Essence of Governance. Charters of Rights, as in the Amendments to the US Constitution are Created to Clearly Define the Rights of the Governed . . .
BUT NO CONSTITUTION IS CREATED . . . To Protect the Rights of the Majority, which Creates the Constitution for the Benefit of the Majority.
THAT SAID . . . Charters of Rights, or in the Case of the United States of America’s Amendments to its Constitution . . . the Amendments Define Individual Rights, which also Focus upon the Rights of the Most Vulnerable.
DEMOCRACY DOES NOT MEAN FREEDOM . . . NOT AT ALL:
The Very Essence Of Democracy Means Rule By The Majority . . . That’s It!
A PERFECT CASE IN POINT . . . Pre-Nazi Germany had a Democratic Constitution, which Allowed the Nazi Party to Legally Assume Power as a Result of the Electoral Enabling Act of 1933.
NOWHERE . . . In the German “Constitution” were Guarantees for Individual Freedoms, which Included Freedom of Religion, Expression, Association – ETC.
And Mostly . . . There Were No Freedoms To Protect The Minorities.
BUT NOW . . . IT SEEMS AS THOUGH WE HAVE IT ALL ASS-BACKWARDS:
It Doesn’t Just Seem To Be – That The Minorities Are In Command . . . BECAUSE THE MINORITIES ARE IN COMMAND. Where our Constitutions (USA & Canada) were Created to Protect the Rights of Minorities from the Excesses of Majorities, Majorities Now Need To Be Protected From The Excesses Of Minorities.
THE TYRANNY OF THE MINORITY IS NO LAUGHING MATTER:
As An Example – The Evidence Is Clear . . . Yet The Canadian People Still Don’t Get It.
Quebec’s First Separatist Premier (1976) (Equivalent to a US Governor) . . . Rene Levesque, said of Quebec’s March to Ethnocentric Nationalism and the Separation of French Quebec from English Canada . . .
“Quebec Will Achieve National Sovereignty Through Gradualism . . . Step By Step”.
The Reality . . . is that Rene Levesque wasn’t just Prescient, but in all Truth based upon 20/20 Hind-Sight, Levesque actually UNDERSTATED what Stupid People will Allow to Happen under the Guise of Democracy, Weak Government, Slanted Media & Political Correctness.
I Know . . . Because I Lived Through It & Canada’s Still Paying The Price.
HERE’S THE ANALYSIS VIS-A-VIS QUEBEC, CANADA & TYRANNY OF THE MINORITY:
Quebec – In Essence . . . has become a Sovereign French Nation within an English Speaking Canada, where in the Province of Quebec, the Unrestricted Use of the English Language Is Against The Law, while the Federal Government, THROUGH THE REST OF CANADA, must be Officially Bilingual (French/English).
MORE TO THE POINT . . . Not Only Must The French Language Be Equal To The English Language Throughout Canada, even though Less Than 20% of Canadians are French Speakers . . . Canada’s Prime Minister MUST Be At The Very Least, Functionally French Speaking.
TO ADD INSULT UPON INJURY . . . CANADA MUST FINANCE QUEBEC to the Detriment of the other 9-Canadian Provinces . . . Paid with the Money of the Other 9-Provinces, all of which are Heavily Majority English Speaking.
In Other Words . . . This Is How Quebec Screws Canada With Canadian Money.
I Have Debated No Shortage Of French Language Extremists . . . Which is very Difficult To Do, since Smart Ethnocentric French Debaters ALWAYS PORTRAY THEMSELVES & COME OFF AS VICTIMS, because they are in the MINORITY, and it MUST be up to the MAJORITY – To Be Socially & Politically Generous To The Minority.
I Don’t Blame The French – They Knew What They Wanted & Went For It.
IT’S A TWO-WAY STREET UNTIL THE FACTS CHANGE ON THE GROUND:
Once The Minority Assumes Power . . . The Generosity Ends & The Majority Pays The Price, and the Call To Arms & The Raison D’être for the Minority Never Changes, because the Minority will always be the Minority, Empowering the Minority to always Claim Discrimination by the Majority . . . Which Is Quite A Gig.
But . . . In All Reality – What’s Happening in Canada is Mild by Comparison, because the French People in all Practicality Share our North American Values, while those from whom we Really have Reason to Fear . . . DO NOT!
Two Perfect Cases In Point . . . Paling the Ethnocentric Province of Quebec, ARE THE STEADY ISLAMIZATION OF EUROPE & THE OVERWHELMING INVASION OF LATINOS AMONGST OTHERS AT THE AMERICAN BORDER.
ALL THREE OF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED ETHNIC GROUPS . . . Have Several Things In Common, which Include LEFTIST GUILT IMPOSED Upon Stupid Respective Populations & Corrupt Politicians, who would Sell-Out their Own Mothers to Win Votes & Stay In Power.
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE JUST DON’T GET IT . . . Any More Than Canadians & Europeans, that their MAJORITY RIGHTS have been Overwhelmed by the Tyranny of the Minority, Based upon the Falsehood of Guilt, Faux Common Decency, and the “Invented” Non Existent Arrogance of the Majority.
SO ALLOW ME TO PUT SOME REAL FACTS INTO PERSPECTIVE . . .
1 – In Canada’s Largest City – Toronto . . . in the Riding of Canada’s Liberal Finance Minister (Bill Morneau), it is Estimated that 40% (4 out of every 10-Canadian Children) Live In Poverty. This is Current News Right Up Till Today.
2 – I Drive Throughout the USA Regularly, and I can PERSONALLY Attest to the Fact, that there is Wide Spread Poverty Throughout America, which I have seen with my own Eyes.
3 – In Major Wealthy US Cities, like San Francisco and Los Angeles, whole American Families are Living on the Streets, with Nothing in Life for them To Look Forward To.
4 – I ALSO KNOW FOR A FACT, that Most Retired (Non-Public-Sector-Workers) American & Canadian Citizens, can Barely Make Ends Meet, and Fear the End of each Month when the Bills Come Due.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE . . . WHERE’S THE MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR OWN?
There Are Slightly Less Than SEVEN-BILLION People On The Planet, which in other Words, Equals 7-Thousand Million People, Most of Whom would give their Eye-Teeth to Live In Canada and/or the United States of America.
How Many Should We Let In? How Much Should We Change Our Laws & Culture?
If You Listen To The LEFT, We Should Have Open Doors To Everyone . . . OK, Based on this LEFTIST Assumption . . . Who’s Going To Pay For “Strangers” When We Can’t Even Feed Our Own North American Children & House Our Own Homeless?
And Who’s Going To GUARANTEE The Protection Of Our Own Language, Laws & Customs, When WE Become The MINORITY In Our Own Land . . . & THEY Create & Interpret The Laws We Live By?
I Watched The Senate Hearings With Horowitz & Wray & I’m Not Impressed.
It’s Depressing to Watch These Two Men Answer Simple Questions With Long Winded Speeches, as if they were Philosopher Kings. Our Situation Is Far Worse Than Most Think. AND THE INSIDERS DON’T HAVE A CLUE.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
Bibi will at least identify the Terrorists, whom they are & the “existential” threat’ they are to the Civilized world.
Boy, Howard, you’re bang on with this one!!!!!!!! Thanks again for your wonderful insight.
100% in agreement. Just don’t step in the (hunga).
Right on the money. I have lived for 85 years, spending most of that time in Canada, the remainder in Europe. I have seen the creep of the left, tried to alert people to their fate but alas, very few listened. You must know the saying, “:The Frog is Boiling”, well the frog is dead. If we continue on our present path, the western world as we know it is lost. By the way, the cheque is in the mail!!
Keep up your great work, people have to be informed and you certainly do your part. TedR
Welcome to all Americans reading (and/or posting on) Howard Galganov’s blog. I just wanted all of you to know that nobody knows “Quebec”… and the mean spiritness of ethnocentric nationalism as Howard does. Truth be told, whenever Howard Galganov tells you something, you could take it to the Bank. My 2 favourite Montrealers: Howard Galganov + Leonard Cohen….both BRILLIANT & OUTSTANDING !!! Howard + Leonard also had the good sense to leave !!! HALLELUJAH – Brucester
Scheer is “contemplating” a transfer of federal powers over culture and immigration to the Quebec government if he wins the next election. Pandering to the Quebec voters. I’d like to see Ontario Get the Very same Deal???? Pick and Choose who gets to come into Ontario … UNDER the stewardship of Doug Ford. How is that Unfair???
Like Ted Ross, I am also 85 and I’m glad that I am. Those who want to destroy the west don’t realize that if they succeed they won’t have anywhere else to go. Try living in Canada without heat in the winter months! I keep dreaming that I’ll get my wee cloud to travel around the world to see what kind of ‘heaven’ will be created!
SPOT ON!!! 100% SPOT ONE!!! You have hit the “nail on the head” of the real issues facing both the US & Canada. The stupidity of the Left is monumental & pervasive. Ireland has the right idea, by closing ALL immigration into their country. I personally think, that the US & Canada need to do the exact same thing, CLOSE ALL IMMIGRATION to either country!!! Let’s take care of what is already wrong with the US & Canada, before taking care of the world. Thank you, Howard, for your insight!!!
This editorial has identified all the things that Western civilizations have done wrong – allowing our sense of fair play to be used against us. Looking after minorities is one thing but to allow them to dictate to the majority how they (minorities) have to be accommodated is quite a different matter. “Tyranny of the Minorities” is the only way to describe this totally insane, self-inflicted tragedy that will destroy Europe & N. America. Charity begins at home – feed our own first!! Kim
Interesting that you bring this up at this time. In the Bible, the Torah, to be exact we just read of Korach and his rebellion. He was the first populist demagogue. Moses had said that all of the people were holy, thus Korach used this to challenge the authority of Moses and G-d. Most of the people were just observers of what was happening and did not confront Korach. Fortunately, in this case Moses, the leader had a more powerful force on his side. The nature of people doesn’t change.
Yes, totally agree. Lets look after our own. How many seniors do we see working at Tim Horton or similar places like that to support their meager pension income. How many people are there being served by soup kitchens and community food-bank’s. It is time to stop this insanity of giving and giving to others and not looking after our own.
Like you Howard, I left Quebec and discovered a completely different and BETTER LIFESTYLE IN ONTARIO. The Quebec government will NEVER SEPARATE FROM CANADA. Why not? BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING FINANCED THROUGH THE TRANSFER OF FUNDS FROM CANADA TO A HAVE-NOT PROVINCE. So every Quebec government simply threatens to separate and the POLYticians give in to their wishes. Canda will transfer $12 billion to Quebec this year. To separate from Canada will only result in Montrealers SEPARATING FROM QUEBEC.
In a democracy, the people will always vote for that person who promises the most for no effort. Thus, One person, one vote is tainted. Unfortunately, the most effective, least expensive solutions are not acceptable. The wall could be built, inexpensively, using those who wish to violate our immigration laws.
Bang on again Howard but until the sheeples of both countries wake up, the status quo will continue and get worse. When they finally wake up, I’m afraid it will be too late. Right now sound asleep sheeples still thinks that life in hunky dory !!!
Telling people what language they must speak is undemocratic. If Quebec got to separate it would be one person one vote once. Why any non francophone stays in Quebec is beyond my comprehension.
It’s nice to be kind and humanitarian, but the enormous migration waves we are currently facing are unprecedented in recorded human history, both in speed and in sheer numbers.
The Western world doesn’t have the strength to fix all of the problems of Africa, the Islamic countries and the rest of the developing world, even if we wanted to. We constitute a rapidly shrinking part of the world’s population and economy.
Right on the money Howard as always. Out here in B.C. the ruling socialists government of the NDP, is planning a referendum AND will press hard for us to change our voting system to “Proportional representation”. If we go that way, in my humble opinion, this will ensure that a conservative government will never be elected in the province again. Colin Victoria BC
Sad to say, but “Amen” not only to your editorial but to the comments as well.
Democracy is the easiest road to dictatorship. The Bozo with his majority votes himself dictator of the people. So couple that with a constitution. Good but he votes that out as well – i.e. not withstanding clause. People riot and his police force executes a few. That’s all it takes. I put my protection in the Second Amendment. QED!
This “blog” sailed right over my head…..guess one has to be Canadian “to get it”? Oh well, GOOD LUCK to my Canadian friends!
Sadly HG I am in agreement . Soon we will “all” be equally worse off due to giving in to the minorities and Quebec is an excellent example of how well that theory works. Our country is used and abused by the minorities and the majority gladly pay for the folly. The focus is now moving from Homegrown minorities to Outside minorities of all sorts. Welcome aboard ! Let’s see how well that plays out .
Howard, message to laugh,so as not to cry. To see the traffic in and out of the Human Resources buildings you would swear we support the rich, not the poor. According to a friend, an employee of HR, the “clients” drive big nice suvs and tell the employees what the government “owes” them. At food banks mothers bring their many kids to collect food and then go out and shuffle kids to other mothers for numbers (straight from someone who volunteered to work for a food bank). Go Trump stop corruption
