Essential Knowledge Needed to Grow a Democracy part 2

Freedom is Not Democracy

Of Canada’s decision to send fighter jets to Libya, Prime Minister Harper said” One either believes in freedom, or one just says they believe in freedom”.  We know that freedom is equated with democracy; I reply” One believes in democracy, or one just says they believe in democracy”. I ask PM Harper “When will the people of Canada get a say between election, when do we get democracy”.

Freedom is the soil from which the seed of democracy can grow.  In Canada, we have rights and freedoms, and we have a vote, therefore although we do not have true democracy we need only push a little farther to get true democracy that accountability gives.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
