Who doesn't defend and uphold God, Queen, Country?

Eskimo Communists ain't big on God or the Queen, and they think the country is Confederation and rally around it to "save" the Eskimo's from themselves.

But this is Canader.  Canader is a monarchy, the House of Windsor is the country, Confederation is simply a federation which is simply an agreement.

How you can you get rid of God and Queen, in Canader?  

Dieu et mon droit, Treaty of Paris 1763; without God and Queen, there is no Canader.

There won't be a Canader for that much longer, the Eskimo Communists will hang themselves and bring their Fake Country down with them. Vive le Quebec libre!

Oh well lots of people share that view with me, that's most of Quebec and increasingly Alberta too, surely many people share my views on that,  eh? Wot?

Still not enough to bring down Confederation right this minute, but eventually Quebec will be free.

If most Canadians say that Canada is broken, then there must be someone else out there who is aware of the problem.

Perhaps they do not realize that God, Queen, Country is the solution?

Classical liberal limited government conservatism holding to its oaths to defend and uphold the Glorious Revolution and associated light of civilization itself?

First modern liberal state, ruled the world by Anglo-Saxon rule of law.

Perhaps they are unaware that British is not a place, British is not a race, British is a system of governance called Parliamentary Supremacy founded by William of Orange in 1688

Handed down to Canada in 1763, which is the only legal title to these lands and basis of all law in Canader.

Perhaps they do not realize that having contempt for Confederation is a grand old Canadian tradition, perhaps the very essence of being Canadian in the end,

Perhaps broken Canada does not remember that Canada was forged in fire, long before Confederation came along in 1867 imposed from above by London.

Do me a favor and define monarchy, confederation, republic, and country . . . .  as you see it.  Perhaps your definitions are different than the dictionary versions.  Thanks.

My definitions of Canada are already written for you, in the Treaty of Paris 1763, in the British North America Act and the Canada Act.

Surely you don't expect me to read your own constitution to you, can you not read for yourself?

The Treaty of Paris is the founding of Canada and foundation of Canadian constitutional law.

From there it progressed through the British North America Acts as it went.

Culminating with the Repatriation and Enshrining of the Charter in the Canada Act 1982.

At no point was Canada not a monarchy under the  rule of the British Crown, and Canada remains so to this day, under the Canada Act 1982

Canada is broken economically because it mindlessly follows the rest of the world.  We as a species fail to understand how wealth is created and differentiate that from wealth that is merely redistributed.   We have ceded responsibility to financial institutions who in turn pretty much own government and get things their way from the golden rule (he who has the gold, makes the rules).

Canada is broken politically because we lack the leadership giving us the clear vision of how to reduce government from a meddling screw up of bureaucrats to doing what government SHOULD be doing...governing, regulating and enforcing to provide a level playing field.   As it is, government here is just like government in most of the rest of the world and uses itself merely to dispense privilege to those who can buy or in other ways cause government to provide said influence.  Sadly, given a stable democracy, the people don't seem to realize that they have the power to change things...but, as I said, to do so will require actual leadership.  Sheeple follow.  That's how we got into this mess in the first place.

They long for a 'strong leader' and don't much care if he or she breaks rules to get things done.

What are the things you want to see done ?

If you ask me, the less of the "doing" the better.

Not all of us, some of us are fully prepared to short the markets for fun and profit as necessary.

Canada is an asymmetrical dictatorship of the Eastern Elites.

Taxation without representation.

Never the less, it is but a sandcastle in the tides of an ocean of American freedom.

We can go our own way, do our own thing, buy low sell high, in the global markets of the Empire of Liberty.

I want to see health care fixed. I want to see the native mess cleared up. I want to see the legal system fixed. I want to see the immigration system reformed. I want to see quick, smooth application and approval process for resource development. I want to see the military rearmed and expanded. I want an end to interprovincial trade barriers. I want infrastructure repaired. I want the tax code simplified and made into something approaching a progressive flat tax so that everyone has some skin in the game when the vote. I want goverment responsive to the needs of the country, not its own immediate electoral fortunes.

H-m, you start off well, but then quickly lose me the moment you mention the resource development approval process.  I do not want to see this "fixed"; it is bad for the environment as it is.

On the healthcare (fast and readily available), legal system reform (so it is available to everyone) and immigration (reducing the numbers to 0) I am with you.

Are you one of those people who wants to see all humans die so the earth can go on tranquil and serene without interference? Because everything we do is essentially 'bad' for the environment. That includes eating and heating our homes.

Resource development employs millions of people and is responsible for most of our exports while paying a huge amount of taxes to support our welfare state.

Ontario just hit a new record this week for time spent between entering ERs and being admitted to hospital - over 25 hours. You call that fast, do you? Do you appreciate the months long wait for diagnostic tests, for specialist appointments, for various elective surgical procedures? Not all of us do.

I hope you understand this cannot go on forever.  Resources are finite.   We either ration them and limit ourselves in what we do, or we destroy all around us and then start killing one another .  There is no other way!

When I say "fast", it means I am aware of a problem and want to see a change to "fast".

Resource development will end only when technological improvements change the need for them. Eventually they'll get the key to fusion power, and improve battery life and that will be the end of most fossil fuel development. I don't see the end of the need to mine ores, however, unless we figure a way to build things without iron, copper, magnesium, etc.

Have you ever pondered the question:  Where does the money for healthcare, Indian payouts, Canada pension/OAP, etc. come from ?  Just askin' . . .

I did.  From chopping down our forests, exporting oil and digging in mines. 

And why is that?   Because all value adding jobs were outsourced.  And what else?  Canada brought millions of people from overseas who came with no jobs and need healthcare too!
