Time to Rethink Our Allegiance to Parties


federal-leaders

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.

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
