Rob Ford’s Problems


The public is terribly polarized over the Rob Ford’s confessions and with his associations within those of the drug world. While many want him to go, the polling numbers have grown stronger in his support. But in all this political theatrics we are missing the most important point, which is what is best for Rob Ford.

After the video was shown that Mayor Ford confessed to having smoked crack cocaine he polled 5 points higher in popularity. I wonder if those asked thought that they were showing support Rob Ford. This is a political view, when clearly what Mayor Ford really needs most is help with his personal life. The 5% increase in political support will likely make the Mayor believe that he has the mandate to stay on when clearly he has some social and substance abuse problems that need to be addressed. Those of that increased 5% would done a greater service to the Mayor if they withheld their support so he would go get help with his personal problems. He, his family, and Toronto would derive the greater benefit from his taking off the time to get professional help.

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
