CANADIAN DIRECT DEMOCRACY... JAN 23RD,2014


CANADIANS NEED DIRECT DEMOCRACY JAN 23RD,2014
By
JAMES BREDIN

Canadians need direct democracy because so few vote,
And compulsory voting is politically remote,
We could force our politicians to change laws and pay heed,
With binding referendums where Canadians are all agreed.



But our established elites want nothing rearranged or changed,
That means that binding referendums will be looked on as strange,
Plus no set-date or mid term elections allowed in this land,
Where death with dignity is Supreme-Court completely banned.




Establishment types hate plebiscites because it might interfere,
Where they occupy the private-club high ground and are sincere,
Among special appointees, politicians and judges,
Information on the Internet never shows any of the grudges.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
