Definition of “rogue”
A French word, which in that language signifies proud, arrogant. In some of the ancient English statutes it means an idle, sturdy beggar, which is its meaning in law. Rogues are usually punished as vagrants. Although the word rogue is a word of reproach, yet to charge one as a rogue is not actionable.
A deliberately dishonest person; a knave; a cheat. [1913 Webster]
So a pro-rogue is ? an arrogant person who is deliberately dishonest and argues in favor of handouts for the idle?
because it certainly doesn’t hold its Latin meaning:
Latin prorogare, literally: to ask publicly
Canada is not a Republic. It is a monarchy. Our head of state is Queen Elizabeth.
What you thought we have her on the money because she looks good???
Apparently, no constitutional monarchy in the entire world has ever allowed a prorogue to fend off a vote of non-confidence or to discourage the formation of a coalition government.
So who in history has used the power of prorogue to retain power?
1629 King Charles I England
1799 Napoleon France
1913 Victoriano Huerta Mexico
1933 Adolf Hitler Germany
1936 Francisco Franco Spain
1939 Benito Mussolini Itlay
1973 Augusto Pinochet Chile
2008 Stephan Harper Canada
Still think Canada is a great liberal democracy? just wait…
