Keep Your Eye on ALEC


alec-logo-smA caution needs to go out to American readers to be aware of the existence of an American organization called Alec. Alec brings American legislators together with Multinational Corporations, with the expressed purpose of drafting sample legislation that appears to be finding its way into public policy. This seems to be a bold, and growing open attempt by mega corporations to seize control of public policy for their good and gain.

I understand that the Democracy Now clip is long, start watching at the 27min. 30 sec. point of the news feed.

And if you listen long enough you will hear of the possible beginnings of private prisons. America is already bent on incarcerating large numbers of the society in prisons, as America continues to have finacial problems, I could see that private prisons could become popular to reduce the costs of incarceration. And human nature as it is, greedy prison owner might be tempted to use forced labour for big profits. Oh, and if a person isn’t afraid to speak plainly, and truthfully, it is called slavery.

Canadians, with their ever expanding prison population, via Harper Justice Policy should also take note and keep a watchful eye.

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
