Satellite dishes aren't illegal. Direct TV is though. It's not Canadian owned so it can't be sold here, it doesn't stop people who want it though. All US broadcasts get over ridden with Canadian channels if they're showing the same program (no Super Bowl adds). There's not enough doctors for people because they can make more money in the US but our health care is "the best in the world". Alot of stupid stuff socialist crap. For some reason people who don't work and are in their 30's think that the government owes them a place to live, unfortunatly alot of politicians agree. Apparently 50% tax rate for the rich isn't making them pay "their fair share". This rate will depend on where in Canada you live and it may be lower here in BC now. There was a 25% tax cut (you pay 25% less, we weren't paying 75%) but only on provincial taxes and that's a smaller portion of income tax. You don't even want to hear about the gun laws. If you have a gun it has to be locked in a 400lbs or more safe or a proper gunsafe, whatever that is. I have looked at a few though and I know that about half of Glocks gun are illegal in Canda. I could tell you more about that but there's so much to say and I don't even know all the laws yet as I am only now old enough to get a gun.

"JACOB HAVE I LOVED BUT ESAU HAVE I HATED"
Romans 9:13

C.H. Spurgeon



WHY DID GOD LOVE JACOB AND HATE ESAU? I can tell you why God LOVED Jacob; IT IS SOVEREIGN GRACE! There was
nothing in Jacob that could make God love him; there was everything about him that might have made God hate him as
much as He did Esau, and a great deal more. But it was because God is infinitely gracious that He loved Jacob and
because He is sovereign in His dispensation of His grace that He chose Jacob as an object of that love. Jacob was loved
by God simply on the footing of FREE GRACE.

WHY DID GOD HATE ESAU? Why does God hate any man? I defy anyone to give any answer but this... because that man
DESERVES to be hated. No reply but that can be true. If God deals severely with any person, it is because that person
deserves all that he gets. Esau did not lose his birthright; he sold it. he sold it for a "mess of pottage." If any of you
want to know what I preach, it is this: "I preach salvation all of grace and damnation all of sin. I give God the
glory for every soul that is saved; and when I come to preach damnation, I say that damnation is of man."

I'm looking for anyway out to the US and I sure as hell don't want to get there and find another Canada forming.

Sorry to hear that. You better get here fast, because it looks like we're becoming a combination of Canada (Socialism) and Mexico (Aztlan Cesspool). I don't see anyone with the political will to turn this ship around, it's only a matter of whether it cruises, or goes full steam ahead.

Doesn't have to be one person. As people here have said they feel civil war II is coming. After that the nation will go in whatever direction the winning side wants to take it. If ain't conservatives I'll already be dead.

"Apparently, saying that someone is wrong is tantamount to hating that someone."

There is no "wrong" anymore, just as there is no "truth". Everything is relative, all behavior and actions are "normal' for that "individual". There are no "absolutes" - saying there is an "absolute truth" is hate speech.

And if you do not like this philosophy - you had better pull your children out of public schools - today.

I think civil war is quite possible, somewhere down the road. At that point, it will be a matter of how many true patriots are left. It will be a bang, or a whimper, and I don't have the crytal ball to predict that one. Negativism aside, it's still a great place to live, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. For now.

It's not just how many patriots are left but how well armed they are. It's not a great place to live, it's the best place to live.

This is news?
Canada has considered the publishing or broadcasting Biblical prohibitions against homosexuality to be hate speech for years, and I've seen articles about people prosecuted for this.

I wonder if Canadians think their hate speech laws will be a defense on Judgement Day.

By the way, if you are an 18 yr old Canadian, as you say you are, are there many more up there in your age group who are able to think the way you do?

Yes. There's quite a few, most young Canadians don't think like me, or atleast speak out, but there's more then you'd expect. I have a few friends who also want to enlist but they're stuck like me with immigration. There's also another person from Freerepublic who lives in Alberta who want's to join and is having the same problem.

"When civil liberties groups act like Orwell's thought police, true democracy is in serious trouble."

I disagree, I believe democracy is just around the corner....

is it really so bad that you want to get out of there?

Their gun control policies have cost umpteen times more than they had planned, and neighbors are allowed/encouraged to turn in neighbors for not turning in illegal guns...or not registering the ones they have.

Their socialized medicine is pretty bad I hear... I would say yeah, it's pretty bad. I sure wouldn't go there. I'd have to sell my new toy.

I wish you and your patriot friends godspeed, we can use all of you we can get. It's too bad it's such a hassle for you, who are trying to obtain citizenship legally, while our politicians not only look the other way for millions of illegals, but reward them for their lawbreaking.

Thanks. You wouldn't believe what I've been told by some INS people and politicians. Everything from your an illegal to I don't have time. I've even been told to talk to my representative. Difficult as I don't have one.

By the grace of G-d I've been homeschooling for over 16 years.

Well, my wife has been homeschooling, but I help. :)

Shalom.

Under the provincial Human Rights Code, Hugh Owens of Regina, Saskatchewan, was found guilty along with the newspaper, the Saskatoon StarPhoenix, of inciting hatred and was forced to pay damages to each of the three homosexual men who filed the complaint.
_________________

Damages for what? Being made to feel guilty? Good grief? So in Canada I can file a complaint against liberals for making me feel bad? COOL. Oh crap wait, conservatives aren't a protected class...

Scary stuff folks, scary stuff.

This is outrageous on so many levels.
