Les élections de 2010-2011 déroulées sous la commande de la communauté internationale ont placé au pouvoir des étrangers, en l’occurrence Messieurs Michel Joseph Martelly et Laurent Salvador Lamothe.
Leur gouvernance est émaillée de Corruption, de népotisme, de clientélisme, de malversation, de gaspillage des maigres ressources nationales, de dépenses somptueuses, d’instabilité gouvernementale, de vassalisation des Institutions républicaines, du non-respect des droits de l’homme, de la tolérance de l’impunité et a institué un Etat délinquant. Les agissements de ces étrangers au timon des affaires de l’Etat haïtien portent atteinte à la dignité de la Nation et contribuent à ternir l’image de chaque haïtien en particulier et de la nation haïtienne en général.Considérant que Monsieur Michel Joseph Martelly a violé les articles 114-2 et 115 de la constitution, lorsqu’il a ordonné l’arrestation du Député de Delmas-Tabarre, Arnel Belizaire, le 27 Octobre 2011, ce qui constitue un Crime de Haute Trahison;
Considérant que Monsieur Michel Joseph Martelly par l’Arrêté du 24 janvier 2012 (LE MONITEUR, Supplément du No. 10) portant création de la Commission Nationale de lutte Contre la Faim et la Malnutrition (COLFAM) et du programme ABA GRANGOU et l’Arrêté du 15 juin 2012 (LE MONITEUR No. 94) créant la Commission d’Appui à la Coordination des Infrastructures de Sport et d’Accompagnement de la Jeunesse Haïtienne (CACISAJH) a ordonné au Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances de mettre à la disposition de son épouse, Sophia Martelly et de son fils Olivier Martelly les fonds publics sans contrôle aucun contrairement à l’article 200 de la Constitution.Considérant que le Premier Ministre Laurent Salvador Lamothe est considéré au Sénégal, comme un escroc prototype, où des poursuites judiciaires sont envisagées contre lui suivant les dénonciations du citoyen Newton Louis ST JUSTE.
Considérant que le Premier Ministre Laurent Salvador Lamothe et Monsieur Michel Joseph Martelly utilisent les fonds publics et les fonctions Officielles pour effectuer des voyages à l’étranger à des fins personnelles Considérant que le cousin de Michel Joseph MARTHELY, Richard MORSE, a déclaré au journal canadien «Toronto Star » qu’il a démissionné comme conseiller de la Présidence pour cause de corruption au Palais National, Vu que les dénonciations font état de Corruption, d’Escroquerie et de Blanchiment d’argent, infractions pour lesquelles le législateur a institué : l’Unité de Lutte Contre la Corruption ULCC et l’Unité Centrale de Renseignement Financier UCREF et qu’en ces matières le Parquet est tenu de saisir ces organes aux fins d’enquête.
The Congress of Virginia State has just approved the Resolution SJ-455 to honor the "April 30th" as "South Vietnamese Recognition Day".
In reality, April 30th is the day the Republic of Vietnam fell into North Communists. South Vietnamese people marked the day as "National Mourning Day". That is the darkest day in Vietnamese history.
Any other names given to April 30th would match the will of Vietnamese Communists who always wants to eliminate the true meaning of the day.
In the 2013 New York State Legislative session, New York State Assemblyman Francisco Moya, representing District #39 (Corona, Jackson Heights and Elmhurst) introduced bill A2597, entitled "The New York State Dream Act".
This bill would allow undocumented students who were brought to the United States as very young children to be eligible to receive Financial Aid for a College Education within New York State.
The Bill increased Financial Aid by 25 million dollars, in support of this initiative. The Bill is supported by Speaker of the Assembly Sheldon Silver. A similar bill was introduced in the New York State Senate bill #S2378, but is being blocked by the Republicans Led by Senator Dean Skelos. Senator Skelos does not want the bill to reach the floor because he is afraid to put the State Senators on the record to either support or object to the Bill. Senator Skelos, does not want to loose power in the Senate. Senator Skelos is putting Politics above People.
We need to contact Senator Dean Skelos and tell him to support The Dream Act.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I want to live in a world where children can go to school without fear of violence.
Where journalists are not threatened for reporting on human rights abuses.
Where people from different backgrounds use dialogue rather than violence.
Where police can be trusted to protect citizens.
Where families are not forced to flee their homes.
Australian people, in some comparisons with other developed, democratic nations, are underrepresented in the House of Representatives.
For a population exceeding 23 million, there are only 150 seats in that chamber of Parliament. On average there is a representative for every 153,000 people. New Zealand has a single chamber in its Parliament of 120 members; for a population one-fifth that of ours, it has only 20% fewer seats and 20% fewer representatives of its people, but this works out as one representative per 37,500.
Canada has a population greater than our own (45% greater) and its lower house, its House of Commons, has a representative total of 308 seats, more than double our own lower house (one representative per 117,000). The United Kingdom has a population of 63 million, almost three times our own, but its House of Commons has over four times the number of ours (650). This equates to one representative per 97,000 people. The Netherlands has a population around 20% smaller than ours, but the same number of representatives in its lower house (111,000 represented by one person).
The number of members in Australia’s House of Representatives has been adjusted over time to account for population increase, but the last time this was done was almost 15 years ago, the population was almost 19 million. Since then, there are only two additional representatives, but 4 million additional people to represent. Rather than increase the number gradually every decade, the number should be increased to 225 to allow for future population changes.
It's relevant to note that the American people see a constant stream of irresponsible and corrupt political leadership in Congress.
Congress are so incompetent that they cannot even pass a budget.

UPDATE: Israeli Cabinet resolution rejects UN vote on Palestine and affirms Jewish rights in all the Land of Israel.
"The Jewish people have natural, historical, legal rights to its homeland with its eternal capital Jerusalem... The State of Israel as the state of the Jewish people has rights and claims to areas that are under dispute in the land of Israel...The Palestinian Authority's one-sided step at the U.N. constitutes a gross violation of the agreements that have been signed with the State of Israel; accordingly, the Government of Israel rejects the U.N. General Assembly decision."
On the date of 9-11-2012 a known group called Ansar al-Sharia attacked the United States Consulate in Benghazi Libya resulting in the deaths of four Americans.
The State Department has known for sometime that the Consulate was in harms way, but failed to protect the members of the state department. Even with the knowledge that the above group Ansar al-Sharia that has ties with Al-Qaeda was in the area.
On the date of 9-11-2012,a massing of protestors were outside the consulate,which was innocent in itself,with the protestors not knowing that the group Ansar al-Sharia had other plans. The premeditated attack on the sovereignty of the United States is an act of war,and yet nothing was done and to this date its still under investigation. The NAS in Sicily was less than an hour away. There are QRF (Quick Response Forces) that were less than an hour away. Never in our history have we had a foreign mission attacked and WE DID NOTHING.
:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (8:30 p.m. Benghazi time): U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens steps outside the consulate to say goodbye to a Turkish diplomat. There are no protesters at this time. (“Everything is calm at 8:30,” a State Department official would later say at an Oct. 9 background briefing for reporters. “There’s nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside.”)
3 p.m.: Ambassador Stevens retires to his bedroom for the evening. (See Oct. 9 briefing.)
Approximately 3:40 p.m. A security agent at the Benghazi compound hears “loud noises” coming from the front gate and “gunfire and an explosion.” A senior State Department official at the Oct. 9 briefing says that “the camera on the main gate reveals a large number of people – a large number of men, armed men, flowing into the compound.”
About 4 p.m.: This is the approximate time of attack that was given to reporters at a Sept. 12 State Department background briefing. An administration official identified only as “senior administration official one” provides an official timeline of events at the consulate, but only from the time of the attack — not prior to the attack. The official says, “The compound where our office is in Benghazi began taking fire from unidentified Libyan extremists.” (Six of the next seven entries in this timeline — through 8:30 p.m. EDT — all come from the Sept. 12 briefing. The exception being the 6:07 p.m. entry, which comes from Reuters.)
About 4:15 p.m.: “The attackers gained access to the compound and began firing into the main building, setting it on fire. The Libyan guard force and our mission security personnel responded. At that time, there were three people inside the building: Ambassador Stevens, one of our regional security officers, and Information Management Officer Sean Smith.”
Between 4:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.: Sean Smith is found dead. About 4:45 p.m.: “U.S. security personnel assigned to the mission annex tried to regain the main building, but that group also took heavy fire and had to return to the mission annex.”
About 5:20 p.m.: “U.S. and Libyan security personnel … regain the main building and they were able to secure it.”
Around 6 p.m.: “The mission annex then came under fire itself at around 6 o’clock in the evening our time, and that continued for about two hours. It was during that time that two additional U.S. personnel were killed and two more were wounded during that ongoing attack.”
6:07 p.m.: The State Department’s Operations Center sends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. (The existence of the email was not disclosed until Reuters reported it on Oct. 24.)
About 8:30 p.m.: “Libyan security forces were able to assist us in regaining control of the situation. At some point in all of this – and frankly, we do not know when – we believe that Ambassador Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital in Benghazi. We do not have any information what his condition was at that time. His body was later returned to U.S. personnel at the Benghazi airport.”
About 10:00 p.m.: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issues a statement confirming that one State official was killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Her statement, which MSNBC posted at 10:32 p.m., made reference to the anti-Muslim video.
Facebook is the most used social network on the world wide web today with an average of approximately 1.01 Billion users per month. It's used to advertise, reconnect with family and friends as well as campaign for any political office.
Why not go one step further and allow the American people to cast the vote on Voting day via Facebook. You can pay bills, watch, television, go to school and so many other things via the Internet, why not make it easy for someone to cast their vote for their candidate via a secure app on Facebook.
There are so many Facebook users that would love to vote but for various reasons may not be able to physically get out to do it. Facebook would give them that chance. Facebook was flooded during the presidential debates. Imagine if every one of those users were able to cast their vote and really take part of their American Right. The turnout would be tremendous. The American voice would definitely be heard.
Political dynasties continue to dominate the country’s electoral system with almost 70% candidates coming from a political clan. According to the study by the Asian Institute of Management Policy Center (AIMPC), poverty is more prominent on areas under a political dynasty. The same study also shows that legislators belonging to a political dynasty are wealthier than those who are not.
This provision was ratified on Feb.2, 1897 but no law has been passed to implement it, mainly because the legislators themselves are members of a political clan.
According to the 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines, Article II, Declaration of Principles and State Policies, Section 26, The State shall guarantee equal access to opportunities for public service and prohibit political dynasties as may be defined by law.
There are several religious stations on the air that are allowing vicious attack ads to sponsor their stations.
The Current Labor Government's actions have caused financial and emotional hardship to many Australians and it seems their priorities lie overseas rather than on homegrown soil.
Καλούμε τους Έλληνες πολίτες αφού ενημερωθούν, με την παρακάτω πλήρως αναρτημένη επερώτηση που έχει ηδη κατατεθεί στον Πρόεδρο της Ελληνικής Βουλής (ΣΥΝΤ.69), από τον Δημήτριο Αντωνίου, την 04-09- 2012 με αρ. πρωτ.1972/04-09-2012 να την συνυπογράψουν.
Είναι το ελάχιστο που μπορούμε να κάνουμε αντιδρώντας στην συγκάλυψη των εθνοπροδοτών και διεφθαρμένων πολιτικών που καταχράστηκαν την εμπιστοσύνη του Ελληνικού λαού, προς όφελος των ξένων κατακτητών και διαφθορέων, υπερασπιζόμενοι το πολίτευμα και τα δικαιώματα των πολιτών της Χώρας.
Η συλλογή των υπογραφών θα κατατεθεί στον Πρόεδρο της βουλής.
προηγήθηκε αίτηση προς την βουλή του ιδίου με το ίδιο θέμα η οποία έτυχε αρνητικής απάντησης.

If you are sick and tired of all the negative political advertising, issue ads, and electioneering communications being forced on you in the privacy of your own home and you’ve had enough, please read on.
By signing this petition, you will be joining fellow Americans who feel personally responsible to substantially reduce the amount of this kind of political advertising that you and your family are being exposed to during the 2012 national, state, and local political election races.
We as citizens of this great nation have grown apart from the ideals that guided this country into it's golden days.
Where once we valued community and mutual progress, we now only value the individual and their doomed quest for personal success.
Therefore I ask you to think of the suffering of your fellow Americans and sacrifice of yourself so that nobody in this country should have to live in fear of medical bills.
We are being lied to in our faces. Our planet is being used up because it is cheaper for them to do so. We have the means and the will. Now it is time to request what is rightfully ours.
This is the Future Manifesto.
It only asks for a chance.
Εκλεγμένο Πραξικόπημα. Επειδή οι Πολιτικοί των δύο Κομμάτων Εξουσίας της Ελλάδας, ΠΑΣΟΚ και Νέα Δημοκρατία είναι οι Καταχραστές του Δημοσίου Χρήματος για 37 χρόνια και Οδήγησαν την Ελλάδα στην Πτώχευση και επειδή Μονοπωλούν τον Απόλυτο Έλεγχο και των τριών Εξουσιών της Δημοκρατίας.
Κυβερνητικής, Νομοθετικής και Δικαστικής, έχοντας καταργήσει όλους τους πιθανούς Μηχανισμούς Ελέγχου και Τιμωρίας όσων παραπέμπονται για Αδικήματα, και επειδή μετέτρεψαν την Κοινοβουλευτική Δημοκρατία της Ελλάδας σε μια Κοινοβουλευτική Δικτατορία και επειδή αποκλείεται να επιτρέψουν σε οποιαδήποτε Αρχή να τους Παραπέμψει και να τους Δικάσει για τα Εγκλήματα που έκαναν σε βάρος της Ελληνικής Κοινωνίας, και επειδή τα εκάστοτε Κόμματα της Αντιπολίτευσης αποδείχτηκαν τελείως Ανεπαρκή να διαχωρίσουν τελείως τις τρεις Εξουσίες της Δημοκρατίας, ώστε να υπάρχουν ουσιαστικοί Έλεγχοι της Εξουσίας, και επειδή είμαστε πάνω από τέσσερα εκατομμύρια Έλληνες Πολίτες που δεν ψηφίζουμε, μαζί με τους μισούς από αυτούς που ψηφίζουν, αποφασίσαμε να απαρνηθούμε τα Ανθρώπινα και Πολιτικά Δικαιώματά μας και να ψηφίσουμε την εκλογή μιας Νέας Κυβέρνησης αποτελούμενη από Προσωπικότητες που δεν ασχολήθηκαν ποτέ με την Πολιτική ούτε ποτέ είχαν καμία οικονομική σχέση με το επίσημο Κράτος, με αποκλειστικό σκοπό να εισηγηθούν στη Νέα Βουλή που θα ελέγχουν ως Νέο Κόμμα Εξουσίας, την Κατάργηση όλων των Ανθρωπίνων και Πολιτικών Δικαιωμάτων όλων των Ελλήνων Πολιτών και Πολιτικών, καθιερώνοντας ένα «Νόμιμο Πραξικόπημα Εξυγίανσης» διάρκειας ενός χρόνου με πιθανή παράταση για ένα άλλο χρόνο, με αποκλειστικό σκοπό την Εξυγίανση της Ελληνικής Οικονομίας και την παραπομπή όλων των υπόπτων Πολιτικών στη Δικαστική Εξουσία προκειμένου να δικαστούν με συνοπτικές διαδικασίες που δε θα επηρεάζονται από τα Ανθρώπινα και Πολιτικά Δικαιώματα, τα οποία χρησιμοποιούν οι Πολιτικοί για να ξεφεύγουν από τη Δικαιοσύνη.
Εμείς οι απλοί Πολίτες δεν έχουμε τίποτα να φοβηθούμε γιατί δεν κλέβουμε κανέναν. Μόνον οι Κλέφτες θα φοβούνται και μόνον αυτοί θα αρχίσουν να κραυγάζουν περί Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων και τα τοιαύτα! Εννοείται ότι θα καταργηθούν όλες οι παραγραφές όλων των Αδικημάτων των τελευταίων 37 χρόνων και όλες οι Βουλευτικές Ασυλίες. Παράλληλα η νέα Κυβέρνηση θα εισηγηθεί τις 12 Τροποποιήσεις του Ελληνικού Συντάγματος καθιερώνοντας τις δώδεκα Αρχές της Δημοκρατίας όπως περιγράφονται στο «Δωδεκάλογο της Δημοκρατίας» που περιλαμβάνεται στη Διακήρυξη του Κινήματος τη «Σιωπηλής Πλειοψηφίας» Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες στην ιστοσελίδα της «Σιωπηλής Πλειοψηφίας» www.siopili.gr
We are shocked and horrified to see that the UAF (Unite Against Freedom) is operating in the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. Apparently these people of the UAF are upset that the British National Party is standing a candidate in the Grove ward forthcoming election.
If residents don't want to vote for the BNP then they will not for them. It is called democracy and the UAF do not like it. Let us show the bigots and the far left that we value democracy in this country.
Let us not forget that the Nazis were defeated by British Nationalists.
The current prime minister, friend of Lord Ashcroft and others of that ilk, has verbally pilloried an entertainer for taking apparently legal measures to reduce the tax he pays.
22. Canadian nurses decry dismantling of health, social and environmental protections -- Les infirmières canadiennes décrient le démantèlement des programmes de protection sociale et environnementale de la santé
The federal government has moved quickly to pass Bill C-38, the omnibus budget implementation bill entitled the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act. Rather than ensure the sustainability of Canada’s social and environmental protections, this bill reduces funding and oversight. These reductions will only lead to larger and costlier problems for Canadians and their governments in the future. If passed, this legislation will, among other measures, reduce income security, shrink employment insurance, weaken investments in food safety and security, harm employment equity provisions, dismantle environmental regulation, and backtrack on climate-change policies.
Canadian nurses are sending a loud and clear message to the Conservative government: stop cutting Canada’s environmental, health and social systems.
As more than 800 registered nurses (RNs) gathered in Vancouver on June 18 for the Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA) annual general meeting and biennial convention, they demanded action to halt the systemic dismantling of income security programs, environmental protection measures and investments in health. Assembled nurses urged Prime Minister Stephen Harper and members of parliament to stop these cuts, which are fundamentally irresponsible and damaging to the health and wellness of Canadians.
CNA declared that RNs will speak out against these cuts, and that the association will support its members to protect the integrity of essential programs and the health of our nation.
CNA calls upon Canadian nurses, other healthcare providers, and members of the public to endorse CNA’s Declaration by signing this petition and asking others to sign!

Le gouvernement fédéral a rapidement fait adopter le projet de loi C-38, le projet de loi omnibus sur la mise en œuvre du budget intitulé la Loi sur l’emploi, la croissance et la prospérité durable. Plutôt que d’assurer la durabilité des programmes de protection sociale et environnementale du Canada, ce projet de loi réduit le financement et la surveillance. Ces réductions budgétaires entraîneront seulement des problèmes plus importants et onéreux pour la population canadienne et ses gouvernements dans l’avenir. Si cette loi est adoptée, parmi d’autres mesures, elle réduira la sécurité du revenu, restreindra l’assurance-emploi, diminuera le financement dans la salubrité et la sécurité alimentaires, nuira aux dispositions sur l’équité en matière d’emploi, démantèlera le règlement sur l’environnement et reculera concernant les politiques sur les changements climatiques.
Les infirmières canadiennes envoient un message fort et clair au gouvernement conservateur : mettre fin aux réductions budgétaires à l’environnement et aux systèmes de santé et de services sociaux du Canada.
Alors que plus de 800 infirmières et infirmiers autorisés (IA) se rassemblent à Vancouver à l’occasion de l’assemblée générale et du congrès biennal de l’Association des infirmières et infirmiers du Canada (AIIC), on demande d’adopter une mesure qui permettra de mettre fin au démantèlement systématique des programmes de la sécurité du revenu, des mesures de protection environnementale et du financement de la santé. Les députés fédéraux et les sénateurs doivent cesser ces réductions budgétaires, qui sont profondément irresponsables et qui nuisent à la santé et au bien-être de la population canadienne.
L’AIIC a déclaré que les infirmières et infirmiers autorisés s’opposeront à ces réductions budgétaires dans les programmes et que l’association soutiendra ses membres afin de protéger l’intégrité des programmes essentiels et la santé de notre nation.
L’AIIC demande aux infirmières canadiennes, à d’autres fournisseurs de la santé et aux membres du public d’appuyer cette déclaration de l’AIIC en signant cette pétition et en sollicitant d’autres signatures!

1. Conversion to Christianism;
2. Persistence on New Faith;
3. Pro-human rights activity
Items 1 to 3 all automatically entail a death sentence.
24. Keep Them Honest
Candidates for President often site information to support their political positions.
A candidate's political affiliation is what determines the information they put forth. Democrats say one thing is true, and Republicans say exactly the opposite is true. This phenomenon leaves the American citizen at a loss for what is actually true.
I believe we as citizens can and must change this.
The level of politics in this country has become an absolute joke.
From MP's who make accusations in coward's castle, to decisions made without consultation, we all vote for a reason but when this is taken away from us we need to stand up and make them listen.
ObamaCare caused health insurance to skyrocket from around $13,000 to now over $15,500 for family insurance with never-ending annual increases. Our take home pay is reduced by this amount and all of this money goes directly to Big Money Political Donor Insurance Companies.
Plus we pay out-of-pocket co-pays up to average deductible amounts of $1,000-$2,000. Sign the petition now to replace this broken system with our new "Citizen-Centered Platform of Solutions" that gives every citizen the "American Freedom Benefit Package."
If you help us and we win, just one of your many new benefits will be the American Healthcare Freedom Plan where we simply take up to $6,000 per individual and $12,000 per family away from the insurance companies and place it directly in your 100% Government Exempt Trust Fund that is never taxed and is fully inheritable. Then you can have a secure fund to cover all routine and preventative care expenses, and if you ever you reach your annual deductible your plan automatically converts to 100% insurance coverage.
All unused funds roll over to future years so you can build a huge TAX FREE Health Assurance Account (HAA) Trust Fund. One of the many magnificent benefits of this plan is that all accumulated funds above your annual deductible can be used for your personal needs.
Now instead of being forced to invest in risky and corrupt markets where average investors lose 30%-70% of our wealth every 8-13 years or save with banks that lend our own money to us a 4%-20% or more while giving us less than 1% on our savings we will now be able to invest in ourselves and our families. Now, we will be able to skip the banking middlemen and finance our own purchases from orthodontics and elective medical procedures to automobiles and home improvements to education costs to virtually all of our major life needs.
With your new benefit package you will be able to finance your own purchases from your pent up retirement and healthcare funds and repay yourself with interest. In the end you will own the things you need in life and when you repay your loans to yourself you will have tremendous wealth.
Our politicians voted to implement ObamaCare against the will of the people and before they even read the bill. Now we know that ObamaCare was 2,900 pages of political payoffs to Big Money donors that exacerbates all of the problems of our current system to make them worse. The AHFP solves all of the root problems in our current system to slash healthcare costs in every area. You will love our Total Citizen-Centered Platform that solves all of the major issues our country faces because we drastically decrease the costs of living while dramatically increasing the standard of living for every American Citizen. We also save taxpayers $2 Trillion annually with our total platform of solutions that ends deficit spending, pays off our national debt and brings solvency back to our local, state and federal budgets.
Sign our petition now so we can get to work for you, and then tell everyone you know to do the same. Go here for the complete details: http://goo.gl/4o9oZ
I think it is time that we as Islanders take a stand against this government and their strategies to reduce debt (Just to be clear — because Sheridan is not — the P.E.I. government is not implementing the HST so that Islanders may pay less in total taxes. Oh, no. Budget projections suggest the combined HST will bring in about $25 million a year in new taxes.)
I think we are making it harder and harder for the common Islander to make a very basic living in this province. The HST is coming in on basic needs. There are Islanders now who can't afford to feed families, but let's tax them higher and make it so that they cannot eat at all. There are breakfast programs in the schools because it was identified that there were children coming to school hungry. What is next? Dinner programs? And a CPI increase on other taxes? How many Islanders got a CPI increase on their pay?
And if we all have to cut ~3% each year, what will this look like for the common Islander? Will it mean that they turn the heat down even lower in their homes? Do they eventually freeze? Do we take more food from the table of families? Do providers come in to access medical services because they are so stressed due to the fact that they can no longer provide for their families? Do people become forced to choose to do without life saving medications because they have to pay tax instead? How long did it take the PEI government to create this deficit they talk about? And they want to eliminate it in three years. On who's back, do you think?
Time to send a strong message to this PEI government! We have a voice. Let's use it!!
With the Electoral College, someone who has a very low amount of popular votes can still be elected as President of our country.
No matter how many people may have been in favor of a specific candidate, the Electoral College can still decide whether or not he/she should be elected in the end. Does that sound fair to you?
I believe each individual can have ONE vote, and the popular vote of the many individuals should in the end add up and decide who is to become President.
As a group, young people have the lowest turnout in elections and we believe this means that they are underrepresented in politics.
It is time to put an end to political robo calls for Federal and Provincial elections in Canada. What is happening with this latest scandal in our House of Parliament just begins to show the political corruption in this country.
It is very hard to be patriotic and proud to live in a country where our political leaders are pulling stunts like this. I don’t know of a single person that appreciates getting computer generated calls from anyone let alone our politicians.
