My grandparents left family in Canada when they came to the U.S. I've
been trying to put together a plan to move back to Canada. Once you get
entrenched in the United States economy, it's difficult to leave. I
have letters in Swedish written in 1870 saying they wish they had never
come here, that they do "unspeakable" things to each other, so horrific
that my great grandfather wouldn't even write them down.
Nothing much has changed. It's still a nation where horrific things
happen to people and the nation goes on with a bare minimum of care.
They simply ignore it - as long as it doesn't happen to them. Katrina
couldn't have been a better example. Hundreds of people drowned in
their homes and were shipped off in busses and literally dumped into the
streets to survive. Many are homeless and sick. There is no public
outcry, they're all too busy celebrating the 4th of July.
I had a chance to work for the best law firms in America for over 20
years, including White House counsel and the Supreme Court. I will tell
you exactly what is going on, after comparing International and British
Law with what goes on here. This is a sham democracy and as long as the
greater majority of the people don't keep up with daily politics and
keep their heads in the sand, they intend to keep up the sham forever.
Michael Moore showed it to them in living color and I'm waiting for the
fallout over the next year. We are making about as much progress toward
real democracy as Nero.
Do Not Ever go to privatized health. It's a numbers game on the NY
Stock Exchange. That's all it is. They rip off the investors and they
give the nation absolutely nothing. It creates an atmosphere of "me
first" and "who cares what happens to you".
It came as a big shock to me from my Canadian friends that the American
Revolution didn't end in 1776, that Canada was attacked well into the
19th Century by renegades. That is not in our history books. American
children are not taught anything about it. In fact, American children
are not taught one blessed thing about Canada. We have to drive up to
Canada and find it on our own.
There has been an ongoing effort obviously, to retake and dismantle the
Canadian way of life by your Southern neighbors. If they can't take you
by force, they plan to keep selling Canadians an Americanized solution
to all your ills. If you want to publish this, you have my permission.
I'd be happy to act as your spokesperson in America anytime.
If somebody shows up in Canada and tries to walk off with your Canadian
way of life, I'd be happy to set the record straight about the American
