NO CANADIAN REFERENDUMS... APRIL 17TH,2013


Canadian binding referendums are completely forbidden,
Our party politicians don’t want to be overridden,
By the people in a so called democracy without tools,
Where we don’t have any compulsory voting or many rules.




If the establishment play their cards right; they could get an appointment,
To a cushy job in the Senate and never again have a disappointment,
Where death-with-dignity is not allowed to be even mentioned,
Because of the possibility it might cause religious tension.




Several years ago, they told Sue Rodriguez that she had to die,
With painful Lou Gehrig’s disease and I will never know why,
We don’t even have proportional representation,
Which causes an untold amount of political frustration.
