Thanks for sharing you idea
Thanks your home comment. I am from India. We built constitution by reading many constitutions. We took many ideas of British system (Federal), USA (Unitary) and many others. But in India, still things are not fair based on many studies and reports
Canada has similar regulations and restrictions. Unfortunately, Elections Canada had no problem with non-Canadian funded groups registering for third party status (illegal), nor with people publicly buying, selling and trading their votes.
Thank you both for your feedback. I guess India is progressive and with the right government there’s always hope for more improvement in the system in future years? I’m surprised people can buy and sell votes in Canada; it sounds so undemocratic!
Thanks for sharing your view
AnnaMKB, Thanks for your comment. I think there are fair political practice. But in most of the cases it is in favor of wealthy people.
I've found social media is very good at "tumbling down" people - often based on false information. Social media is manipulated by these special interest groups more than politicians. Case in point, Canada's current accidental Prime Minister.
Good points I had not though of, thank you.
Thanks for for your comment, Yes.social media can be used for improving the democratic practices
Thanks Matthew A. Easterbrook for sharing you view
Every now and again a 'whistler blower' reveals something. For example Wiki-leaks, the banking scandal of tax evasion through Panama, and a year or two back the Swiss Banks list of 'tax dodgers' and 'dirty money.'
Despite this, nothing changes.
You are right Alan. We have to improve our legal system to ensure equality of decent life for all even to the poorer
Thanks for sharing your view. I think, all the rich people may not be corporate. But both of them can influence the political system as said by you
I did say it was a general rule.
While I appreciate what you're trying to day, tithing to God is not for favours. The purpose of tithing is twofold; to provide for the needs of the priests, temple, and to distribute to those in need, and to teach us to always put God first.
So, Anna, it's the priests and the temple first, then the need but God before any of these? I would suggest it should be "God" in the shape of the needy, then the priests and the temple last of all ..if at all.
Way to twist a simply concept into something negative.
The first 1/10th goes to God, through the priests and temple, who then take the 1st 1/10th to give to the needy, before their own or the temple's worldly needs.
