Our Next Political Step … Dec 9th,2013
Canada should have binding referendums in the Charter,
Like Switzerland where people can show that they are smarter,
But our politicians would jump up and down and shout and scream,
Because this could be compared to taking away a kid’s ice cream.
We could have a binding referendum to change parole boards,
Make them responsible to the public and not act like lords,
Referendums to pick senators, governor generals and more,
Of course this would be something our appointees would deplore.
These ideas would give power to the people - not appointees,
But these kind of political changes do not happen with ease,
So we need a political leader who can lead us all the way,
Not some appointee who is in it just for the very high pay.
