All things that we create in our life, usually come from our own fears or hopes. I find myself wondering if I had made a decision to do something or not would it had made a difference in the long run.
In Canada we are at another federal election, and in this case we have a lot of people that have found themselves in the camp of the conservatives, who like many of their American counterparts, have found that they combine their religion and politics into one realm. But yet when you try to talk to them about religion or politics you get berated because they always figure they are right and you are wrong.
The problem with some conservatives is their level of paranoia that they are being ganged up on. I have to state with some certainty that this has a level of psychosis to it, and a level of mental unbalance.
To come to this understanding that conservatives tend to feel they are under attack and they must use violent and abusive words and methods to get their way. They are also an intolerant bunch of people that feel that it has to be their way. They blame the liberals for all their problems, but yet they seem to not grasp at the reality of their own life, and own situation.
They believe in religion and some god, that is a man made institution that was created for power and control. You see with religion you have the power to manipulate peoples minds into some level of belief, and with that belief you have control and you have power over their lives.
The difference with liberals is they are willing to hear all sides of an argument that has been brought forward to the table, and listen to all sides and points of view. Liberals are able to discern between rhetoric and the bumper sticker patriotism, and slogans that are used by conservatives to try to get what they want.
When you get past all the rhetoric and the slogans of each political side and get to the simple fact that the liberals and conservatives both have valid points, but mostly the points are being presented in a screwed style of presentation to create the acceptance of one’s ideals.
Conservatives tend to be blinded by emotions rather then facts that sit in front of them, such as the fact that the conservative government of Canada was found in contempt of parliament which in itself is a serious charge. This was the reason for the parliament of Canada to be dissolved.
The biggest problem with political parties is they tend to create a belief system that pits Canadians against one another instead of trying to work together for the best of Canada, and the rest of the world.
It is my firm opinion that political parties only serve to create division within the government, and within the peoples of Canada. If we got rid of political parties and everyone ran as in independent, then think in the long run we would be able to actually solve a lot of the issues within Canada.
We would need no opposition party, as it would be irrelevant, because question period would then become not about a made for TV political side show. It would be a current event, and an update on the state of the nation.
Political parties serve no one but the elite, rich and powerful. They do not serve the common man that elects them to office.
It is my belief that if we were to have an elected senate, each member of the senate should be running on no ticket of a political party and be totally independent. This would show to prove that people would have to run on their record, not the record of some political party.
The fact is elections in themselves tend to do nothing for the people, other then exercise their right to vote for the same people over and over again. Many people have come to the conclusion that we would be better off with the Members of Parliament pulled from random names in the phonebook.
This idea is an idea that makes people feel if they screw up during their four year term; they will not have a chance to continue to do it again. With 34 million Canadians, and take at least 10% of them that would agree to be drawn in this lottery that would leave 3.4 million people to pull out of a lot, now the math says that no one person would ever be selected twice because once they have served their term they would be excluded from the list.
This idea makes more sense then electing people that don’t listen to us after we put them into elected office on a ticket of a political party.
