Government Of The Parties, By The Parties, For The Parties


Canada Today – A Government: Of The Parties, By The Parties, For The Parties!

On November 19, 1863, at Gettysburg Pennsylvania, President Abraham Lincoln delivered what we now know as the Gettysburg address. Mr. Lincoln noted:

“that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The president was articulating a version of democracy where people participated and where government was the servant of the people.

The reality is that: government of the people, by the people and for the people has perished in Canada. The people have been replaced by political parties. Canada has given birth to a form of government, where voters and local ridings are irrelevant. That form of government is an Orwellian form of – government of the parties, by the parties, for the parties!
