Why don’t we just make Stephan Harper King? We have just witnessed another trade deal pop out of secrecy. Where is the uproar about another secret deal? Stephan Harper has made a habit of his dealing, after we also discovered that the Conservatives had been cooking up a deal with both Europe and China. You remember the China deal that had a 31 year back out clause. Both of those deals had been negotiated for much of the term of Harper’s time in office, such that he could have told us during 3 election campaigns, so we could decide on the deal with our votes whether or not we like the direction he was taking us. You know, mandate and that kinda stuff.
Call me old fashioned, but when I was young, political leaders would tell the electorate what they were hoping to accomplish in their term of office and let the people vote on it. I think it was called a vision for the country, or something like that. It was so long ago, and so far away from where we are today. Today we are asked to dutifully asked to swallow the whole plop of lies, negative ads, backbiting on trust that we don’t have. It seems like there is no time for issues any more. But why bother, most everyone is sleeping or bothered that we are forced to listen to the mess anyway.
Our technology has become incredible at the same time that we have entered the dark ages of political thinking amoung the populous. Space missions to Mars are on the horizon, and we, the People, have information instantly at our finger prints with computers. We have millions that have had the college and university educations, and yet we are content to live in what some question as a democracy. We are only baby steps farther along the democratic trail to what our horse riding ancestors had. But we must be okay with that because the people aren’t out into the streets protesting. Those fanatic activists are doing it.
It is so incredibly sad that we are content to be lead down a path by those whom we do not trust, but we let them, because why? We don’t want to think. We revel in our so-called knowledge, our advanced technology and our civilization, but we don’t want to think or do something about our lack of say. What does it say about those that are willing to only be alert long enough to give out their vote and then dutifully pay our taxes and shut up because we are told to; we are unwanted in the process of democracy.
We might as well just hand over the reigns of power to Harper and his money seeking MP yesmen. Let’s just make him king and then we don’t have to go through another election, and we can just go to sleep in our small little World’s.
