Something I wrote a few days ago and my Son encouraged me to post….

Today is a day to remember December 16th, 1773, the day the first American Patriots, alternately referred to as the “rebels” from Boston, or the Sons of Liberty, threw 300 odd chests of tea off of three East India Company ships into the Boston Harbor.

We call this the Boston Tea Party, in reality a protest of taxation and overbearing government rule.

And the British government ‘doubled-down’ and added more and more taxes and then came The Boston Massacre….

What little Freedom is left in American’s now, finds its roots in the stand taken over a three penny tax on a pound of tea and the refusal, under penalty of death to submit.

General Thomas Gage dispatched 700 British troops to take the people’s arms and so began Paul Revere’s ride, Lexington, Concord, ‘The shot heard around the world’ and then, full-fledged Revolution….
This stand was not about three pence….it was not even a matter of ‘Taxation without Representation’ it was the principle of being a ‘Free Man’

Do current day events remind you in any way of the situation in Boston in 1773…?

If they do, they do because your eyes are open…

If they do not, you have I suggest, for all good reasons presumably, that you have forgotten John Adam’s position that “Liberty must at all times be supported…” and that statement by Samuel Adams, who said prophetically, “Only those that are brave in the face of adversity deserve to live free” and which I say we are seeing played-out in the desert of Nevada right before our eyes.

Now more than any time in our past, since George Washington first said it , we must remember the first President’s words:

“A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.

Are there parallels we are now experiencing…?

Given there clearly are, I pray there are more Cliven Bundy’s left in America, more Cowboys willing to risk their lives in the sights of government snipers by sitting atop their steed, on the mountain tops with their Flags…..as Patrick Henry said: “The battle is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”

I stipulate to writing as a Canadian; a Canadian who has always dreamed, since I was a little boy, of shrugging-off the yoke of what I saw as a British understanding of Freedom, an understanding I always felt was a quasi-freedom, and an illusion of what could be and to become an American….to become one of those people who actually understood what was and what was not a state of true freedom.

I mourn for those people and that place now and for the concept it stood for, as I see it being degraded day by day.

I have in-fact after sixty years of yearning, lost my desire to become an American, as I have seen its citizens giving-up without a whimper, their liberty to, as Benjamin Franklin in 1759 “purchase a little temporary safety, and thereby “deserve neither liberty nor safety…”

As Benjamin Franklin said: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”

Consider a prayer for the Patriots today….

Howard Galganov offers a very interesting recommendation…

Following please find a copy of Howard Galganov’s posting from today….this is a guy whose writing you need to sign-up for….go to www.galganov.com

I was up past 1:30 this morning returning emails. More people have signed-up to receive EDITORIAL ALERTS from this website in the last 24 hours, than ever before during that time span.

But, what really tells me that we are on the right track, are the number of very nasty and insulting emails sent to me from LEFTISTS who practice demagoguery as their only means of debate.

The LEFT are really upset, because whether they really understand the ramifications of what they did on November 6, 2012 or not, I am quite certain that they can sense some very bad times coming to them not too far in their future.

Not only are they RIGHT about the bad times heading their way, they have no idea just how bad it is going to get for them.

AND I INTEND TO MAKE IT AS BAD FOR THEM AS POSSIBLE.

Understand this . . . this past election is not like the Super Bowl, where after the clock runs out declaring the winner, nothing about the game changes, knowing that going into the next season, the rules will be exactly the same as they have always been, where teams will win or lose on MERIT.

IN THIS CASE EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED.

The friends and family you have, who voted for this mess aren’t like friends and family you would have a bet with over who would win the Big Game, with whom you could share a beer after the game is done, while debating what was the best strategy on the field, since who won or lost is really inconsequential, but this is different because . . .

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PAST ELECTION IS VERY MUCH CONSEQUENTIAL.

People on the LEFT who are gloating over their “victory” don’t get it. They really don’t understand the depth of anger that is palpable on the RIGHT. And they don’t realize what kind of blowback there is in the wind.

Perhaps there is no John Galt, the hero of Atlas Shrugged who can hide the MAKERS in his secret society, but there really is a John Galt solution.

USE YOUR POWER:

In my last editorial (November 7, 2012), I wrote that my next editorial, which is this one, would contain a new strategy for Conservatives who believe in Freedom of the Individual, which I personally decided to implement the day after the November 6 electoral DISASTER.

If you’re wondering why I as a Canadian am so impassioned by the recent events in the States, it’s because SOCIALISM is a GLOBAL disease that must be fought on all fronts.

And if there is any country on the planet where Socialism can be defeated, clearing the way for Conservative victories everywhere, it is in the USA.

The MAKERS and other people on the RIGHT, who truly believe in the Rights of the Individual, have an unbelievable weapon at our fingertips.

WE HAVE IT WITHIN OURSELVES TO FIGHT BACK WITHOUT COST, where each and every one of us can make a REAL difference, not by what we can do, as much as by WHAT WE DON’T HAVE TO DO.

HERE IT IS . . .

Make no mistake about it . . . anyone on the LEFT is the enemy, who believes that we the people should work for the government, instead of the government working for the people.

As of November 7th, neither Anne nor I will hire anyone to work for us, or do work for us who we believe is a Liberal, no matter how nice that person or those people might happen to be.

This is kind of callous and out of character for Anne and myself . . . but desperate times invite desperate measures.

I will not give any of my business to anyone who I suspect is not a Conservative.

ANNE AND I ARE GOING TO BEHAVE LIKE LEFTISTS:

We will no longer donate anything to any group or institution that is NOT Conservative. We will no longer donate to any of the hospitals we usually support, since in Canada, all hospitals are under the auspices of the government.

And in the USA, Obama and the LEFT have made it clear that they now run the healthcare show from bottom-up. So . . . of what need of your money is there for any medical institutions, since Obama will take care of it?

We won’t donate to the many health research funds that we always do, since they too are for the MOST part tied to the government.

A WHOLE NEW DEFINITION OF SOMETHING-FOR-NOTHING:

If the LEFT wants Something-For-Nothing . . . What they’re going to get from me is NOTHING.

Over the years, Anne I have supported with our own money, time, effort and organizing skills, programs to shelter the Homeless, feed hungry school children, raise money for the disadvantaged, help abused women and deliver holiday food baskets for the poor.

ALL OF THAT IS FINISHED. Let the LEFT go to the government for their charity, since my personal piggy bank is NOW closed. Besides, after Anne and I are done paying our taxes, deductions at source, employee benefits etcetera, etcetera, etcetera . . . there’s really not all that much left, giving a whole no meaning to I GAVE AT THE OFFICE.

YOU WANT MY SUPPORT . . . EARN IT:

As for supporting Political Parties, that day is also over, since NONE of them can be trusted to standup for the RIGHTS and FREEDOMS of the Individual, especially since there are very few politicians who understand the meaning of honor.

I will support the few politicians who are 100% committed to standing up for the principles of Freedom that I endorse. Otherwise they can all suck-wind.

LET’S GET ORGANIZED:

Furthermore . . . I’m already working to create a loosely organized Conservative Association of like-minded FREEDOM-LOVING individuals, all of whom believe in LESS government, MUCH fewer regulations, the LOWEST taxes possible, the LEAST amount of government spending and success based upon a MERITOCRACY.

And as far as SPECIAL entitlements like AFFIRMATIVE ACTION in any form, they can shove it, since I will NEVER support any measure of reverse discrimination.

The EXCLUSIVE purpose of this association will be to promote Conservatism and how all of us can FIGHT for the principles we believe in.

OBAMA AND THE LEFT CAN FLAP THEIR JAWS ALL THEY WANT TO WITH NO AVAIL:

The Government can FORCE people to do many things. But they cannot force anyone to purchase products from specific vendors, with the American exception of Obamacare.

OVERLOAD THE DEMAND ON GOVERNMENT AND BREAK THE BANK:

The government can FORCE people to pay their employees certain salaries with specific perks and entitlements. But the government cannot force anyone to hire people. So hire the minimal amount of people possible. Or job out your work offshore.

It’s very good for your bottom line, and it forces MORE people to depend on the government.

When hiring people, converse casually to get a feel for where that person stands on the political spectrum, and if that person is a LEFTIST, or that is the vibe you get, hire someone else.

Don’t buy products from UNION shops. Don’t buy a General Motors Car since we’ve already paid for that disaster in the many TENS of BILLIONS of dollars.

If you want to purchase a made in America car . . . buy one of the Asian or European cars made in America. Or buy a FORD.

If you have “friends” who are LEFTISTS . . . find new friends.

The government has all the money in the world . . . YOURS, MINE and BORROWED money that we’re all on the hook for . . . to do to us pretty much what they want to.

So, we have to do what we can with our own money. Or better yet . . . do what we can without spending any money at all.

THIS IS A STRATEGY RIGHT OUT OF THE LEFT’S OWN PLAYBOOK:

Be a passive Activist by denying yourself nothing. If you really have to, do business with a LEFTIST. But otherwise, choose to give your business to people who support our values.

When vacationing, vacation in cities and States that voted Conservative. Don’t go to entertainment centers that favor the LEFT.

DON’T DEBATE WITH ANYONE ON THE LEFT – IT’S COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE:

The LEFT LOVE to debate and spread their world vision . . . SO DON’T give them the pleasure. BESIDES . . . there’s nothing that you can win in a debate with anyone on the LEFT.

YOU HAVE FAR MORE POWER THAN YOU MIGHT REALIZE:

You might think that this really is small potatoes, since you’re just one person with limited purchasing power, which might be true if you were just one person, but we are NOT just ONE person; we are half of the population.

We are as many as ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION very angry people who are as powerful as a FORCE of NATURE . . . that is if we stand together.

By denying LEFTISTS access to our money, they will pay dearly for their COLLECTIVIST philosophy that is destroying our once great societies.

BUT DON’T DO THIS QUIETLY:

I’ll tell you how far I go. I actually ask people where they stand in the political spectrum before I give them my business. If I don’t like their answer, I tell them so, and bring my business elsewhere.

Some merchants and service providers can’t believe that I would even ask, and get pissed-off. So what? I’m pissed-off too, and I can take my business anywhere.

IF WE WANT TO WIN BACK OUR RIGHTS . . . DON’T PLAY THEIR GAME.

Let the country know that there is a personal cost to Socialism for those who want to be Socialists. When people are left jobless because you’re a selective employer, let them go to THEIR government for a salary.

When the charities come knocking on your door, tell them that you already gave in your taxes.

Save your money for people who’ve earned and deserve it.

I have been fighting the LEFT for so many years . . . that it seems to me to have been forever. I fight out of my own pocket and with the help of people who donate to this website. But I expect nothing from anyone.

What I do expect from the people who visit this website is for them (you) to get into the fight and spread the word.

You don’t have to write checks to be involved. It would certainly be helpful if you could, but all you have to do to make a difference, is to just get involved instead of watching like a spectator.

Galganov.Com is not designed to entertain. I don’t spend hours day in and day out to win a popularity contest, I do it because it’s the right thing to do, and I am a fervent believer that if you don’t fight for your RIGHTS . . . you don’t deserve to have them.

WE HAVE THE POWER . . . REAL POWER – SO LET’S USE IT.

AYN RAND WOULD BE PROUD.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

The End of America as the Founder’s Intended it to Be……

I was certain the voting population of America would choose the Romney/Ryan ticket over a repeat of the past four years and I couldn’t have been more wrong….

President Obama will now preside over the balance of his intended “fundamental transformation” which, as it progresses will I suggest have the Founder’s America disappear forever….

Constitutional Government will have given way to a powerful Executive, replete with Executive Orders and an enabling Supreme Court and a eunuch-like and mostly ceremonial House and Senate.

The President’s handling of Bengazi mattered not a whit….in-fact, the majority of those I spoke to didn’t have a clue…and No, I will not begin a litany of complaining….I will simply remind us of what Patrick Henry said in 1775….

He said:

“It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth – and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

After 200 some odd years the Republic has begun a death spiral it will I fear never recover from….in four years, the die will have been cast and the greatest experiment in mankind’s history will have come to an end, not with tears and gnashing of teeth, not with bloodshed as it’s death is resisted, but with the cheers of those who would rather receive than give and who see their part in its end as good and worthwhile enterprise….something to be proud of and cheer for…

I wonder where the world will look now to find Freedom and Liberty….for it will no longer be found in America.

The concept my Father and so many Fathers and Mothers and their Mothers and Fathers before them sacrificed so much for; the concept of Free Enterprise, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion and in-fact Freedom in any form will have been relegated to stand behind the Betterment of Man as defined by the Elite who will rule over us.

As President Reagan said:

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth…”

And last night, we lost it…..it exists no more and in four years I fear, even the history books will not speak of its existence….

I feel a distinct sense of loss this evening; twenty-four hours ago I felt much different….I was just sitting down to what I was sure would be an evening where Americans would take America back, an evening the founders could have been proud of….instead….as President Reagan also said, we will soon be living the horror, he feared might one day come upon us:

“Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset telling our children and our children’s children what is was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Voting is an honour……

Tomorrow is a time of great solemnity….it is Election Day in America.

Being a Canadian I am unable to vote in your elections although, I am always reminded of the reason my Old Dad used to offer for his wartime service….

He would, when I was a boy, tell me that he spent his six years overseas in order that I would be able to choose.

It was a lot for a young boy to grasp…. I am blessed to fully grasp his sacrifice now.

And his sacrifice and the sacrifice of all the Millions of other young men and women cause me to revere Election days in America and Canada…..

Election days and the act of voting seem to me, to have a direct connection to sacrifice and must therefore, be honoured because of that sacrifice.

It seems to me as if not to vote would be to dishonour that sacrifice and so I vote and I recommend you vote and when you do, that you remember and honour through your voting and a moments recognition, the sacrifice of so many good men and women who made it possible for us to choose.

My God….it’s not 300+ it’s 500+…!!!

after I posted that 300 plus retired Senior Military Officers had endorsed Governor Romney a friend sent me a note and a link….

It’s no longer 300 plus….it’s now 500 plus…!

In fact, The Washington Free Beacon reports that:

“The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders…”

Remember to vote on Tuesday….
