The Sleeping

The solution to Canada’s (all nation’s) political problems is relatively simple; it is the implementation that is the difficult part. Canada, as with almost all nations, have a sleeping population. What is hard to implement is that the people need to learn about this simple solution and then fight their representatives to get them act on the Peoples’ behave.

The Great Awakening

It must be a painful experience for our representatives (or ours in other countries) to go against the will of the 1%. Then again, if their people are sheeple then there are no repercussions to them in going against the voters will. In either case a Great Waking needs to happen.

Question: So, when did the Multinational’s agenda become primary driver, and interest of our governments.

Answer: It always has been the way, ask our Aboriginals. The then 1% were not as bold with whites in the past, and since we did not defend the Natives, they are now here to steal what we have. And, it has all happened while the People have slept.

The Achilles Heel

So what is the solution? Most people do nothing about politics and politicians because they do not believe they do not have a say, BUT (and I pounded out the letters B U T ) they do. You have to ask yourself what do politicians want? Is it the POWER, they really don’t have any, they are really peons to the leader (Trudeau called them nobodies – Harper treats them like trash). Is it the perks, the pension? Is it the accolades, the pats on the back? All these incentives depend on our politicians getting 1. Elected, and 2. Re-elected.

They need to get into office at least twice to get what they want. However, there is something that our representatives know, that we don’t (collectively), or we don’t think about. That is, there are usually very few votes that separate the first past the post and the next person in the election horse race. If we understand this need that they have and we contact them and threaten their re-election, making them feel vulnerable to getting what they want, then we do have the power to motivate them to listen. Imagine if a thousand people wrote letters to their representative, and told the representative that they were not happy with his voting in favour of the Omnibus Bill, or the Elections Act, or whatever. Hundreds phoned his office saying the same, and perhaps we could motivate a hundred people to go down to his/her office to protest; you get the idea, he/she would get the message.

Why do we not go down to talk to the representative? Because we are intimidated by our SERVANT? That we feel like we have no say? – Why because we do not remember the Achilles Heel and we do not act on our outrage?

Why are we not outraged when we elect a person, we pay them a huge salary and offer them huge pensions, and then they go to Ottawa, or Toronto, Edmonton, or wherever, and represent the interests of their party, and worse, the 1%. Where is the okay in this? If the people elect them and they are told by their leaders to how to vote, how is that not anti-democratic? Our paying them as they work toward party interests is paying them to organize against the constituents interests.

Here’s the facts that our leaders don’t want us to think about. We are the People, they are the Servants, we pay them their salaries so we need some accountability. Period. Now get outraged and do something about it.

About pushinback

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

    Trouble is … the DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS … and when a bill is enacted, it may sound reasonable. The reality is often the opposite .. BUT those who support the gov’t (the winners) are satisfied, and don’t make time to pay attention to the details, or criticize the critics as being ‘whiners’ or ‘always against everything’. So the winners keep winning terrible situations. Every time I have tried to explain the dirty details (even to very good people) all I get is their ‘eye rolls’ & a change of subject, or the going mantra such as ‘jobs, jobs, jobs!’. I queryed to B of C Mark Carney about the unnecessary rise in gov’t debt due to interest of the private banks. All I got in return was the pot=boiler letter of avoiding inflation. I truly believe that the neo-economists are basically sociopathic … they have chosen to ignore their great guru, Adam Smith’s contention that a country’s population would be a well-balanced & contented society ONLY if his theory of ‘monetarism’ in ‘…Wealth of Nations’ – his last book, were paired with his ‘Theory Of Moral Sentiment’ – his first & considered most successful book. All I get in reply is a dismissive shrug. I now have my head into other interests which are very intriguing & time-consuming. And keep myself well & happy, ignoring the gov’ts atrocities.
