Voter ID Only Suppresses The Fraud.
Don’t Say We Don’t Have What It Takes . . . ‘Cause We Have What It Takes & Some!
Over the Centuries Our Ancestors Went to War Overseas from the USA & Canada, to Fight our Countries’ Enemies, or at the Very Least, Enemies to our Values, so Their Progeny (You, Me & Our Seed) Would be Free to Grow & Thrive in a Country (Countries) Where The People Ruled The Government, Instead of Rule by a Monarch, Emperor or Elected Tyrant.
The Era Of . . . By The People, Of The People & For The People . . . Is Long Gone – We Have To Bring It Back!
As You Read Through This Editorial, Hopefully . . . I’ll Inspire You To Join In Real Effective Social Combat.
For More Than Two Hundred Years In The USA & More Than 150-Years In Canada, our Systems of Government Have More or Less Worked, Where We The People Decided Upon Whom & How we Would Choose & Control those Who Governed our Respective Nations . . . But Not Anymore.
Today . . . By Whom & How We Are Governed . . . Is in the Hands of our Own North American “Oligarchs”, which we Refer to as Those in Giant Corporations Who Through their Wealth, Decide Upon Who will Do their Bidding in Washington, Ottawa & Capitols Worldwide.
In 2010 The Special Interest Group “Citizens United” Versus the FEC (Federal Election Commission) Changed America.
The 2010 Supreme Court Ruling . . . Allowed for the First Time – Political Action Committees to Become Financially Involved in all Election Matters in the United States of America, which Didn’t just Allow, But Rather Encouraged, All Manner of Big Business & Big Labor to Pour Millions (Billions) of Dollars into Political Action Committees (PACS) for the Sole Purpose of Influencing Elections, Much Of It With “Dark” Money, which Could Come from Anywhere in the World, Creating the Greatest Disincentive Imaginable to Fair Elections & Fair Governance Once Elected . . .
Money Talks Bullshit Walks.
Canada Doesn’t Have An Election Financing System Like The USA. But What Canada Has Is Just As Bad – Maybe Worse, where the Candidates of the Canadian Federal Parties, are Literally Chosen by the Party Hierarchy of Each Party, which are Themselves (Party Insiders) Run by the Rich & Powerful.
And Even Though Canadian Political Finance Laws Are Strict & Controlled . . . No Union or Corporate Donations, No Out-Of Country Donations, and No Personal Donations of More than a Few Thousand Dollars Total Per Year Per Voter-Eligible Canadian are Allowable in Canada.
Every Donation Penny Over $20 Has to Be Meticulously Accounted For.
All of which the Preceding Does, is Make it Almost Impossible For Start-Up Parties & Independent Candidates to Compete Against the Established Canadian Political Parties which Have Millions of Dollars in their War Chests.
You Know . . . Rules For Thee But Not For Me.
While it is True that there are Candidate Selection Votes Per Ridings (Districts), the Candidates who Wish to Represent their Riding are Pre-Selected, with the Outcome More or Less Predetermined by the Party Brass.
And Once In Government, Each MP (Member Of Parliament) has Literally ZERO Independent Authority to Vote for Anything of which the Government Doesn’t Approve.
In Canada, We Vote For Members Of Parliament To Sit In Government Collecting A Great Salary To Nod Their Heads.
A Commentor On Galganov.com Recently Asked . . . How Do We End-It (Government Abuse)?
The Answer Is Simple . . . Even Though We The People Don’t Have that Type of Corporate Wealth with Which to Buy & Own the Politicians . . . We Have More Money Collectively than do all the North American Oligarchs.
We Also Have An Enormous Number Of Engaged People.
I’m Also Asked Quite Often About Age, as in, I’m Older than 70-Years, Many in their 80’s and Some even Older than that . . . And At My Age, I’m Told By Readers That I Feel Kind of Helpless.
THINK AGAIN – If You’re Reading Galganov.Com, it’s Because your Mind is Sharp, You’re Probably as Pissed-Off as Anyone, and You’re Watching these Bought & Paid-For Political Bastards Destroying Everything You & Your Ancestors Built.
You’re Already Engaged, But Just Don’t Know It.
We Don’t Have to Form a PAC, we Don’t Have to Organize Ourselves into a Party. And we Don’t Even Have to Leave the Comfort of our Home if we Don’t Feel Like-It.
We All Have Computers & Or Smart Phones. We all Have Lists (Names) of Like-Minded Friends, Family & Neighbors, even if our Lists Aren’t that Big. And Through Government & Party Websites on the Internet, we all Have 100% Access to all the Political Email Accounts & Conventional Mail Addresses . . . And Their District & DC Phone Numbers.
Or In The Case Of Canada . . . Mail to the MP’s Riding Office and the MP’s Ottawa Office is Free. Mail is also Free to the Senate, the Governor General’s Office and the to the Office of the Prime Minster.
And When you Let your Representative/Member Know What you Want & What you Expect from him or her, MAKE 100% SURE to Let him or her Know your Full Name, the District or Riding from where you Come . . . And Your Return Contact Information.
And It Doesn’t Even Have To Be Your Representative/Member – Go After Them All, Democrats & Republicans Alike.
Make Time Every Day To Get On The Phone, Email & Hard Mail If You Could. It Won’t Cost you a Thing and you will be Fully Engaged and in the Fight. Think About This For a Second . . . If Just 1,000 People Reading this Editorial Sends Just 10-Emails & Makes 10-Phone Calls Per Day . . . That Would be 20,000 Contacts Per Day. And Believe me when I Tell-You, There Are A Lot More People Than A Thousand Who Read These Editorials.
And If You Did It For Just 5-Days . . . That Would Be 100,000 Contacts Per Week. In A Month You’d Make 3-Million Contacts.
But In All Reality . . . 10-Email Contacts A Day Is Child’s Play. 10-Phone Calls A Day Is Just A Warm-Up & Why Stop With The Politicians? How Pissed-Off are you with the Gouging Retailers? Or the Retailers & Manufacturers who Treat People like you and me as Fools?
Back In The Early 1970’s . . . Saul Alinsky Published Rules For Radicals, which was the Blue Print for Legal Civil Disobedience In America, which Became the Bible for Radicals. So Potent was Alinsky’s Nefarious Strategy, that Hillary Clinton Wrote a Thesis on Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and Even Worked with Alinsky.
Even Obama Became An Alinsky Fan.
We Have The Internet, The Time, The Buying Power, Maturity & We Are More Pissed Today Than They Were 50-Years Ago.
We Have A Great Deal To Lose . . . In the 1970’s it was all About the Vietnam War, The Social Revolution, the Hippie Craze, Free Love & Debauchery . . . And Now It’s About Saving Our Very Freedoms & The Future Of Our Progeny.
You’ve Been Asking Me What We Can Do . . . There It Is – We Can Shake The World.
