It is sad. The number of voters among the poor, those of the lower incomes, and those the middle class make up more than 3/4 of the electorate, whether that is in the US or in Canada, or whatever Western nation. And yet, we, the more than 3 quarters, keep electing governments that consistently make laws that promote the policy interests of the 1% in our countries.
We are doing something totally and profoundly wrong. We hold the overwhelming majority of votes, yet we vote for Parties, that maintain the Party System which is so contrary to our 3 quarter interests that we let the 1% rule us.
I propose we rise up in a revolution. Not a revolution of violence (violence breeds caos), but let the anger against our fraud democracy cause us to act in a revolution of learning and understanding of what true, none Party System democracy looks like. Let us rise up with this understanding to action and vote for Individuals that will feel and act more like us, and not the 1%. Let us turn our votes away from Parties and rather elect Governments of Individuals, completely repudiating anyone with any connection to any one of the major parties. Each and every one of these major Parties perpetuate the lie of democratic government when in actuality they promote self interest, which in practice promote the interests of the 1% which will buy elections for them.
We will never, never, never have DEMOCRACY until we understand these truths, and then act in accordance to what we have come to know.
