LDS - For the People & by the People?

History has shown over and over again that many election campaigns and manifesto pledges with all their promises made by the parties leading politicians have turned out to be downright lies and had been nothing more than gimmicks to win voters. When in power the wishes of the people, what they’re supposed to serve, are mainly ignored.

The general perception these days is that our political system is highly corrupt. Our leaders are pathological liars even when they are Priests, lacking in genuine caring, thoughtfulness and empathy. So are most other politicians, while remaining spineless, weak and like their leaders, too programmed, brainwashed, arrogant and self-centered to see outside of the grand deception.

People voting for the major parties describing it as exercising their so-called ‘democratic right’ while calling abstainers apathetic intending to induce guilt are just plain wrong: Electing one of the major political parties is a way of not only giving your power away, allowing to be governed by fascist tyranny, but also supporting it (knowing or unknowingly). Most big political parties are controlled by rich businessmen who call the shots from the comfort of their armchairs.

As for those abstainers, they cannot be blamed for anything because if nobody turned up to vote then no party could claim ‘tax or draft.’ That is, no one could get in office “by the power vested in them by the people.” Elections continue to reach all-time lows because many consider that voting changes nothing. Less people are turning up to vote during elections because more and more are seeing right through the whole charade.

The only way out of this disempowering fascist dictatorship is to look at the independent candidates. If they are not supporting the major political parties but genuinely willing and conscientiously caring enough to serve wethe-people, the voice on the street for freedom and justice and keep promises, then this is a real solution albeit that our people are yet to get their head around this concept.

A build up of independent candidates may take years, but if the investment in time, effort and risk starts to pay off by getting results then more and more candidates will be encouraged to follow in the footsteps. The window of opportunity for change is here, to create a new paradigm experience using different political approaches from different ideas.

The elections might be over this time but take note that there is another one just around the corner and when this happens, independents will be the way to go. The unholy Union now enjoying a majority in the National Assembly is set on a collision course with the Executive and it is only a matter of time that they fragment if not dissolved by a shrewd calculating President who will get them to shoulder all the responsibility of policy failure and public frustration. Watch this space!
