Elections and even rallies, are a total Waste Of Time
Left Wing and Right Wing
Difference between Million - Billion - Trillion
"Democrats and Republicans (Conservatives and Liberals) are two wings of the same bird, and the flight path doesn't change"
From my point of view - change has to happen from bottom up. Voting on both Provincial (State) or Federal elections is in effect, “pointing your finger to someone else,” believing change will happen from top down.
When you consider a whole Province/State - or worse yet any Whole Country, have you not noticed change does not easily (if ever) filter down. All we see is bickering at the top.
PLUS - Corruption and favoritism happens all the time. (Favoritism meaning only a handful of selected close friends of those in power, are awarded any available contracts.) Corruption has now reached the point where, any well meaning and honest elected officials hands are basically tied. Face it - “Our local representatives can not get anything done for 'their' constituents.” Truth is, local elected officials have become just a number holding a seat, or worse a puppet to the system. Often they are not even privy to “classified” information that could either harm, or benefit, their constituents. The “need to know” philosophy is rampant in ALL world Governments today. Transparency does not even happen within the system.
Today – "True world control," dribbles down from just ONE global family, who now have an estimated net worth of over 100 Trillion dollars. Then WAY below them, the world has “only” 1600 Billionaires.
(For an eye opening visual - enlarge the picture the difference between a million - billion - trillion.............. and read the two links above)
World Governments are puppets on the strings of far TOO FEW people.
What we need is at least “One Hundred Thousand MORE Billionaires”, and “Tens of Millions MORE Millionaires.” That is the type of wealth distribution necessary.
Don't move the way fear makes you move. Rather move the way love makes you move. Move the way Joy makes you move.
Mark Twain had it right back then
There is good news.
Voting on your local city/town level, is a slightly different story. On the local level, one person can gather and influence a team of people to create “a chance of change,” from the bottom up.
If everyone in the country got involved in their own back yard and influenced change - volunteered and actually "worked" on a local issue .... collectively the whole country would change. Bottom up.
The best way to change the globe for the better is get involved in your own local communities issues and problems with your sleeves rolled up. From organizing local garbage clean ups, to more serious ones of revitalizing run down sub-divisions. It may be as simple as supporting local musicians and artists for without them the world would be dull..... and never forget how many hours of practice and study they may put in developing their art. No different than putting hours in for a trade or profession. All people have value. All people are worthy. All people are needed to make this a fun safe planet.
That also means, investing your money for returns with local business's and supporting local business when you shop. Encourage business as well as personal individual growth right in your back yard. Encourage and assist in the development of local talent, skills and industry. We need to take care of our own downtrodden, and create an atmosphere of joy and happiness. Action - "Close to home."
Just imagine if every single person in your own community started thinking and acting in this manner. Then take that a step further in your imagination. If all communities (globally) took local action to heart - world travel anywhere, would take on a new spirit of fun and joy.
Bottom line and back to my main theme. When we point our fingers at Big Business or Government Leaders expecting them to make changes from the top down... three of our fingers point back to oneself. And it is painfully obvious that change from the top down is controlled by first the "One" families wealth.... then WAY below them only 1600 Billionaires globally.

"Free energy" (meaning free use of patents already confiscated by the Powerful Elite)
Bottom Up change is the only way to make this a reality. Voting for top down change wont achieve the above results that could easily be completed. Bottoms Up!
George also saw it like it is
Am I negative?
Not at all... in fact I am very positive and I have a huge belief in humanity. We CAN make this transition to think and act bottom up. See Pioneering the new economy here. That article may appear to be a mickey mouse solution, but it truly is a simple “joint effort” example of bottom up change.
Using the Power of Duplication - bottom up change could become a global phenomena. The “Occupy Movement” was an indication the world is ready. Although the movement itself was just a bunch of noise.... it did display the fact that humanity is ready for change.
The strangest thing is, change needed begins with the attitude that “any change at all, is all up to me."
To sum up and bridge my rant to the title of this article... “Provincially(State) and Federally voting is a waste of time.” Look around, it "achieves nothing." Voting is however a visual display, and evidence of, humanities belief that someone else should do something. Worse yet, it is an example of, and belief of a system, "where a single vote, without personal action," will make a difference to the world. Plus evidence in humanities illogical assumption, that someone else WILL make things better.
That to me, would be a scary way to live. Don't waste your time voting, instead, do something to make your own community better.

Quote from Abraham - Hicks. 118% correct
We would like you to reach the place where you're not willing to listen to people criticize one another… where you take no satisfaction from somebody being wrong… where it matters to you so much that you feel good, that you are only willing to think positive things about people…you are only willing to look for positive aspects; you are only willing to look for solutions, and you are not willing to beat the drum of all of the problems of the world.
