Democratic Math

Democratic Math

I tell people that we don’t have Democracy. They look at me as if I have 2 heads, “Of course we have Democracy, we have elections” is the thought racing through their heads.

So here is the math of it, you can call it the Math of Democracy.

We have an election, that is what all politicians offer us as proof that we have a Democracy (I’ll give it that perhaps they themselves have not done the calculations).

So we have to endure their Negative adds, their back biting, finger-pointing, I’m better than them language. We sift through the lies to see if there is even a kernel of truth. We measure each candidate, and each Leader to see if they reflect even a bit of our values. We are looking to find someone to represent us, and our interest at the Government level. We are hoping to have our voices heard, when we collectively cannot be there, and we have children to feed, and roofs to put over our heads. Our representatives will be the ones to bring order to our civilization. Doing our duty, we make a choice and elect someone.

We send this person to Ottawa, or Toronto, or Edmonton, or wherever our representatives sit, and we pay this person generously, to transmit our will and values.

And then their Leaders tell them how to vote.

We had Democracy up until that point, and then the Leaders cut the legs off of our Democracy.

In the end we have our so-called representatives going about in Ottawa, subverting our Democracy by not representing us, but rather, the will of the Corporate Elites, and doing it on our dime.

Our sleep has let it happen.

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
