Our Own Tea Party... Feb 24th,2014


We need control of our Ottawa politicians somehow,
Maybe a tea party or something that we ourselves allow,
We need binding referendums soon but how do we get them?
Pierre Trudeau’s Charter didn’t help and the media will condemn.


We need political recall of useless politicians,
And our appointed Senate elected despite our traditions,
We need compulsory voting to get us all out to vote,
They will delay everything and say that they’ll take a note.


And make Trudeau’s Charter of Rights for Canadians alone,
Not for all refugees in the world from every combat zone,
We need set-date elections for sure every four or five years,
And medically assisted death so that death brings no fears.
