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.
