What I respect about Ron Paul is that the Ron Paul you see in this video from the late 1990s. In 1997 is the same Ron Paul that we see today at least philosophically. Someone who believes in what he would call constitutional-government, that we need to get the Federal Government back to where. It was pre New Deal of the 1930s and pass more power down to the state and individuals themselves. Someone whose still in favor of individual-freedom both personal and economic-freedom. As long as we aren’t hurting other peoples freedom. Now as a Liberal myself I’m not as far to the right as he is on fiscal-policy even though I believe the Federal Government. Is too big and a lot of public-services would work better at the state and local levels and that a of these programs should be. Designed to empower people to be able to take care of themselves. A lot of what Ron Paul says is sound and he’s not a crazy person that so called Progressives on the far-left or Neoconservatives. On the far-right like to portray him as we. He’s just wrong a lot of time from my perspective but for different reasons from why the far-left and far-right do not like him.

Prime Minister of Canada

Prime Minister of Canada

Trudeau's White Paper – YouTube.

I guess since for the last sixty years or longer Canada has been looking for it’s own identity that distinguishes it from America and Britain. That represents both Britain and France ethnically in the country as well as other European peoples and people from parts of the world. One reason for that is that share a three thousand mile border with the most powerful country in the world in the. United States and that’s exactly what I believe Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was doing back in 1978 by. Giving Canada a real Federal constitution that they can call their own that makes them different from America and Britain. Thats looks Canadian and represents Canada and what the Federal Government’s relationship with the Canadian provinces is. And how much power both have and how much freedom the Canadian people have and so fourth and a big part of that had to do with the. Federal Senate that it isn’t very Democratic and doesn’t have much authority even though it’s suppose to be. The upper chamber in the Federal Parliament in Canada.

What makes Canada different from America and Europe is that they are politically different then both countries. They share more of the Social-Democratic values and policies that are common in Europe but also believe in Federalism. And have a healthy skepticism for centralize-power and I’m not Canadian but I believe that’s what they should build off of in creating their own. Federal constitution in a country that’s a real Social-Democracy but not big fans of centralize-power that. Also have a real Bicameral Parliament and make the Senate there a real upper-chamber in Parliament that’s Democratic and has real power. Like an upper-chamber in a legislature should have where Senators are elected by the people, meaning all of them and represent the provinces. But where the House of Commons represents the people similar to America but a big difference being that. The House of Commons woud still elect the executive.

I believe a Federalist Social-Democracy could work in Canada where they are a Social-Democracy. But where the provinces have a lot of authority if not most of it with the Federal Government serves as. Regulator of these public-programs instead of Ottawa trying to manage everything and run the entire country. This system would work there and perhaps a name for the country besides Canada that gives the country it’s own identity. Perhaps the United Federation of Canada to use as an example that makes Canada unique in a positive sense from it’s allies and competitors.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

No More Mr. Nice Guy

 

This just in, Barack Obama is not the young strapping Muslim-Socialist that he use to be. He’s changed his thinking and affiliations and now he’s an Evangelical Christian-Communist instead. Which should make Rush Limbaugh and other Neoconservatives very happy, you know Fox News would be another example. And I agree with President Obama that he and the press have different jobs to do. His job is to run the administration and represent America at it’s best. (Meaning never visting the Bible Belt) And that the press’s job is the to report the first story that will make them the most money even if it also happens to be true. Or in CNN’s case report all sides of the story just in case one of them is actually true. And I’m also glad that President Obama is reaching out to Congressional Republicans especially in the Senate. Perhaps hoping to get more support for his proposals since they can never make up their minds on any of them and are never ready to vote on anything. Another words filibuster all of them for all of you non-political junkies who happen to be 99.9% of the country. Wow! All of you people must have lives or something.

Actually President Obama proposed to reach out to Senate Republicans last week. But on orders of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Senate Republicans filibustered that instead. Two weeks ago President Obama proposed to reach out to House Republicans, but that proposal died in committee. But at least the President is making the effort to reach to more people even though since now he’s an Evangelical-Communist he can just claim he’s a dictator and bypass Congress on everything and say he’s doing God’s will. So he has that power in his back packet,  but to show you that’s not the dictator that Libertarians like to claim that he is. He hasn’t used that power, yet but instead is proposing to reach out to Republicans in Congress, but keeps getting busy signals, or in the Senate’s case a debating society where nothing is done and they only talk about what should be done. One of the weakness’s of the U.S. Senate right now.

Another trick that President Obama could do since he’s an Evangelical-Communist now is to order Harry Reid the Leader of the U.S. Senate to propose that only Senate Democrats can vote on the Senate floor and propose to eliminate the Senate filibuster. Just eliminate the Republican opposition all together. And also propose that the Republican House will be as powerful as the. U.K. House of Lords and that their votes no longer matter. These measures may seem extreme and dictatorial, but Barack Obama is now an Evangelical-Communist and would only be doing what he believes is God’s will. Sort of how the Westboro Church portests funerals of dead soldiers. So who could blame them.

img_0215Source: Hockey Fights: NHL 1984-04-20- Quebec Nordiques @ Montreal Canadians- Highlights

A great Canadian hockey rivalry for about fifteen seasons. When I look at NHL hockey in Quebec (which is not often) and I think about Montreal and Quebec City (which again is not often) I sort of think about New York City when it comes to baseball and football. The NYC area has two MLB teams in the Yankees and Mets and two NFL teams, the Giants and Jets. And even though the Mets and Jets have both had some success in New York and have won championships of their own, they’ve always been the little brother of the Yankees and Giants. The Yankees are one of the most successful franchises not just in MLB but in pro sports. The Giants are not just one of the most successful franchises in the NFL but in pro sports. The Montreal Canadians are not only one of the most successful franchises in the NHL but in Canada and North America as well. And they were always the big brother of the Quebec Nordiques.

Source: TSN: Mob 1997-Canada Day-Montreal Expos @ Toronto Blue Jays: Highlights

The only reasons why Montreal doesn’t currently have a MLB franchise a Major League Baseball Franchise, is because of management and facility. A management team committed to winning that will spend the resources to make that happen, but will also spend them wisely. But also a ballpark that will give them the revenue to support their club. Where people will want to go to watch baseball, but also have a good affordable time. As well as a fan base that is committed to the team in Montreal whether that is the Montreal Expos, or whatever new name a possible new Montreal MLB franchise would be called. You get the right management group, organizational structure, right ballpark and MLB baseball could succeed in Montreal. Because the reason why the Expos no longer exist and why Montreal no longer has an MLB franchise eight years later, is not because of the market as far as size and wealth. But because of the lack of support this market gave their franchise and how cheaply they were run.

Montreal Expos

 

Source:NBC Sports: MLB 1981-NL Divisional-Montreal Expos @ Philadelphia Phillies: Expos Win a Playoff Series!

Because of the 1981 MLB players strike, MLB had this policy where the top first-half teams would play the top second-half teams in an expanded playoff format in both the American and National League’s. It was the first taste of wildcard teams in the MLB Playoffs. Which is how both the Expos and Phillies made the NL Playoffs.
