I am Canadian. In fact, Truly Canadian as we say. This used to be a source of pride. It still is. But it is slowly becoming a source of concern.
I know that this thread will be met with thoughts of "What the hell gives a Canadian the right to weigh in on US Politics?" Well, with the surety of
the NAU sneaking up on the citizens of both Countries, I believe I have every right to make my plea because it's going to be just as bad for us common
folk on both sides of the border.
And my plea is, please get Obama out and give Ron Paul a chance! There is no way in hell that he can make things any worse than what has happened
since the Bush/Obama era but it's a guarantee that Obama will continue to drag a great Nation to the bottom if he's allowed to go on.
Let me start out by saying that I have in my past, been guilty of the anti-American sentiment that can be seen growing everyday around the World. I
hated Americans for their "We are #1" and "Kill 'em all-Let God sort 'em out" attitude to anyone that dared to question the American values and
agendas of their Government.
Well, not anymore.
I can't justify in myself, the hatred of so many innocent people that are facing a complete and utterly horrifying future that so many of us never
could have imagined would happen in our lifetimes. The Fall of Rome...again. After all, it wasn't these people that brought the World to it's current
When I see the signs of increasing property theft of hard working people at the hands of the Banking Cartels, the daily pink slips of employees by the
1,000's, the sons and daughters, fathers and mothers coming home in caskets from far-away lands because of unjust wars that no one wants...I can't
As I witness the slow and deliberate destruction of a Constitution that ANY Nation would be proud of and benefit from, The Monsanto's, BP's, JP's,
Fannie May's, Big Pharma's and the never ending list of alphabet organizations (seemingly created daily) like DEA, FBI, CIA, TSA, DHS, FEMA and on to
infinity it seems, I can't hate anymore.
Sexual assault of seniors, the disabled and children at airports, increasing Police Brutality on the streets, privacy rights ignored, people
encouraged to spy on neighbors, friends and family, kid's lemonade stands being fined for selling in their front yard, organic foods, natural milk and
soon to be health food stores, all being outlawed...Scares the %^#$ outta me!
It would be too easy to continue along this line of thought but I think I made my point. To continue would take pages.
Which brings me to my point...Ron Paul.
I will be 48 yrs old soon and have been fortunate enough to witness a lot of good people trying and failing in their run for the Presidency of the US.
And yet unfortunately, I have never witnessed anyone truly adding anything of value to the office. Maybe a few that tried but couldn't succeed.
I truly believe that Ron Paul could finally be that man to make a difference...if he is given the chance. It may be too late to put ethics and morals
back in the White House but it should at least be given a chance by the US people.
I believe he speaks from an honest and open place. I believe he cares about his Country and doesn't want to see it fall any further. The man BELIEVES
in the Constitution and wants it restored before it's too late.
When I see the Elite of America stealing everything they can from the citizens and then realize that this is slowly coming to Canada, I get worried. I
worry about the disappearance of MY Free Speech, Property Rights, Food and Water Rights, Jobs, Banks, Police Forces etc, all being mirrored in
I don't know how many Canadians feel the same way as I do, or how many Americans agree or even disagree but I'll end this with one thing.
If you don't want Ron Paul, we'll take him.
Just like your Obama, we have our Harper. And now that they're sleeping together, it's gonna be a train
wreck at the border.
I am asking the American People to do something before it's too late and there is no way back for either Nation. Look at the daily threads on just ATS
alone. It is becoming the true measure of the times.
