I need to chime in because this is something I have been pondering on for the last ten years. I am glad some one put George Carlins remarks in here as
they are very similar to mine. A true democracy is based on the fact that the governed must want to be governed. I for one do not want to be governed
by a bunch of children in adults clothing. I have grown up with the ideology that respect is earned not given. The fact that in Canada we give people
like the late Flaherty titles like honourable is laughable. I was talking to someone who knew Flaherty personally and I made the comment that he was
just an Irish drunk. The persons response was that I shouldn't insult drunks by including Flaherty in their list.
Prime Minister Harper was found to be in Contempt of Parliament and should not have been eligible for election his last term. However when you look at
Canada the Governor General is the head of our country and is not elected but is appointed. The Governor General is actually a de facto position
meaning the Governor General position exists and is in effect only because no one has questioned the legitimacy of it. At least that is my
understanding of it.
I can honestly say that there is not one politician I have ever shook hands with and looked eye to eye that I have trusted. I have personally watch
Crusty(Christy) Clark's assistants comb the crowd to find what wardrobe she should wear to give her speech. Why would I ever willingly give these
people my consent to have them tell me what is right or wrong. All you have to do is look at B.C. and it's marijuana legislation to figure out that
politicians are not a representative of their constituents as they are suppose to be. A 2004 SFU study showed 53% of survey participants had tried
I personally think the biggest problem in politics is party politics. A person should be elected as a representative of their electoral area. That
elective should then just be the voice of that electoral area, not the voice of his parties interest. I think that is where the biggest flaw comes in
because they no longer are representatives but rather just another cog in a broken machine.
