Hello, before I begin I will say that I am voting NDP.
I have been to the local BC political events for Jack Layton and the very recent "debate / questions & answers" that took place in Kamloops, BC @
Thompson Rivers University
Michael Crawford (NDP),
Donovan Cavers (Green),
Ken Sommerfeld (Liberal), and
Cathy McLeod (Conservative)
It's the top story right now, right here.
Excerpt piece by Mike Youds
A federal election campaign some have criticized as dull was anything but boring Wednesday night at TRU as candidates fielded a battery of questions
from media and the public.
The two-hour forum drew about 600 people to the Grand Hall, where the questions and responses were kept short, peppered with applause, humour and the
The hall fell silent, though, when Conservative Cathy McLeod and New Democrat Michael Crawford were asked, right off the bat, what they would say if
their son or daughter wanted to serve the military in Afghanistan.
“I would tell my son to follow his heart,” Crawford said. “I would tell my son about the danger of serving under the kind of leadership we have
McLeod concurred: “You need to do what’s important to you. If you go I will be praying for you everyday as every mother would ...”
I noticed that every person that went to the microphone to ask their question had something in common, something that was only touched upon at the
very beginning of the "forum" ... the current economic problems, in a more specific and detailed manner people presented their problems, all of
which at it's root had MONEY as the problem, but NO ONE, not one person addressed the problem and said, what are we going to do with a system that
doesn't work, money=debt, it is a failed system which like the new Zeitgeist
explains is based off of scarcity, garbage products, manipulative advertising and a whole plethora of other problems like technology
suppression and patent suppression and a highly unbalanced planet which at this point in our advances is not necessary.
It seems like it's a global test of some sort... like they screw with money on purpose to see what we do, to see if "we're ready" for the next
level, or it's just evolution and the money system is dying and passing on, it just wants to get its last few words out before it dies forever.
Politics itself are not very functional, and neither is money not with the new technologies being born or the ones that have been suppressed, they are
truly amazing WORLD CHANGING ideas and realities that aren't being given the proper focus, the planet needs better stewardship, people who are
literally for people, let's keep this real people, corporations are not big steel buildings or numbers on computers and paper, .. they are people,
and let's face it something is mentally wrong with people who run a business like it's a living entity that needs money to survive, that's a
falsity so deep it hurts, businesses need relevancy to survive. Corporations are people, and the wrong ones are running them, perhaps we can come to
some kind of sanity before it's too late, someone needs to take control of these man-made resources and use them accordingly to provide a more
balanced society, a more functional globe, a greater life for everyone.
I think the wool has really been pulled over peoples eyes when they can go to a forum like the political debate I attended and not notice that
everyone is asking the same question.
EDIT: One thing I forgot to mention that I thought was interesting was that Michael Crawford was the only one to mention the American elections and on
that note he said, something along the lines of... I hope the Obama wins, not that much of a stretch for a New Democrat to say, but I none-the-less
thought it was interesting.
