Let’s Just Make Harper King

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.

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
