I think that it is time for citizens to rethink Parties and the Party System. We are quickly approaching the Federal Election and the Opposition Parties are quick to tell us that the Harper Government is bad for Canada and Canadians. Most Activists believe that the Harper Government is dangerous, so much so that a petition is circulating requesting the UN send in Election Monitors, suspecting that Harper is going to do something to rig the Election. 70% of Canadians want change from the present Government.
With the discontent of 70% will we see that change in Government? With the polls showing suggesting that there are many 3 way races (London North Centre being one of those ridings) that would take the Liberals or the NDP 3rd place candidates stepping out of the race, and/or even other minor parties, but we all know that is not going to happen despite all the rhetoric of how harmful Harper is. When we are getting heaved under the political bus for the cause of Party expediency, why should we care about parties. They have chosen Party over Canada and People, why don’t we see the reality of a betrayal of us, perhaps it is time that we should be thinking of electing Independents whose interests are more on the Constituents needs, with no Party to divert their true allegiance.
