I Am the Man With 2 Heads


When I tell people that we don’t have Democracy they look at me like I have 2 heads.

The people think that we have democracy, or rather, they believe, they have given up thinking. They believe that they have democracy because the politicians have told them that we have democracy. The politicians make it a huge todo at election time; see we have elections, therefore we have democracy. But, the politicians’ math is a terrible lie.

I feel obliged to tell people, Democracy is where the people vote for someone to be their representative. We elect that person to represent us, we pay that person and we send them to Ottawa, or the Provincial Legislature to represent us and our wishes. There, our leaders tell our representatives to do what they are told. They are no longer our representatives and therefore we do not have a democracy without representation. That is the sad math of it, we don’t have Democracy.

I will continue to tell people that they have been bamboozled, and I proudly continue to be the man with 2 heads.

This is an article about my experience in putting up political signs at the time of an election. Politicians think they own our democracy and the election. I put up my signs to tell them that this is our (the Publics’) democracy and it is our election. This article tells of the experience.

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
