LESS THAN HALF CANADIANS VOTE... NOV 30TH,2013


LESS THAN HALF CANADIANS VOTE … NOV 30TH,2013
By
James Bredin


Canadians have no requirement or obligation to vote,
Politicians seem to like it this way so no one rocks the boat,
Add that to first-past-the-post election scheme and take a note,
The combined loosers almost always have many more votes.


Proportional representation is frowned upon by these elites,
They prefer the present system and they want to keep their seats,
No binding referendums, no recall and no real set election dates,
Questions accepted maybe but no real political debates.


The ruling class of gentry in Ottawa feel they need more respect
Unfortunately too often they seem to be politically correct
Which is the reason why we have no death with dignity
Appointees in the Senate till they’re seventy five brilliantly
