I know it’s Tuesday, but… Last night, as a nation of voters, Canada demonstrated an appalling amount of stupidity, voting in a Conservative government that has done nothing but show utter contempt for this country and the rights, wishes and needs of its people for years. A MAJORITY government, no less.
After a campaign of outright lies, election fraud and ugly politicking, we’re staring into four more years of soft despotism.
I am just so disappointed and disgusted right now.
“I hear you say the truth must take a beating
The flag a camouflage for your deceiving
I know we all make mistakes
This is not a case of blurred vision,
It’s a case of black holes, pocket holes, soul holes”
Sing it, guys.
Change has GOT to happen, and we have to start NOW. Proportional Representation would be a good start. Review of election law would be another.
(It’s too much to ask for more politicians with integrity and conscience and vision. Yet. Maybe someday.)
No time like the present to get educated, get active, and make a change.
