For the majority of people in the United States — a majority does not vote, a majority believes the government is broken, a majority thinks our public policy is headed in the wrong direction — the fact that we call this place a democracy is apparently outweighed by the fact that our national government almost never does what a majority of us want done. Some of the things we don’t want done include the destruction of the planet’s environment, the mass slaughter of war, the spreading of (...)

Canada’s Massive Military Budget Is Off The Table In Federal Election
29 April 2011 par (Open-Publishing)
Among many substantive issues not discussed during campaign 2011 is the $23 billion Canada now spends on war, a massive investment that all three major federal parties will maintain if elected.
Add in the ongoing costs of the Afghanistan war plus undisclosed funding for Canada’s bombardment of Libya (well over 200 aerial bombing runs and aerial "sorties" to date), and the $23 billion figure may run higher.
To put this in perspective, slightly more than $63 million a day is spent on (...)
Canadians to reelect plutocrat Stephen Harper
27 April 2011 par (Open-Publishing)
According to the most recent polls, Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper will be reelected.
Stephen Harper, the up to the task guy when the US needs Canada in a war, has warned that in a troubled world we need a stable gouvernment because, as he said, Canada is the closest thing to an island of stability and security.
What Harper did not say is the fact that plutocrats like him are no stranger to the destablization of the rest of the world. And Canada’s stability is an illusion when (...)
Jack Layton the All-Canadian
24 April 2011 par (Open-Publishing)
Here he is going up in the polls. Jack Layton, leader of the NDP, is the talk of the country. He is according to the most recent polls the most popular party leader in Canada.
We still do not know if that will translate by more votes and more MPs in may for the neo democrats.
After five years of conservative policies, meaning policies favorizing finance and business instead of the needs of the people, Canadians maybe are ready for something else and the NDP and Jack Layton are the ones (...)
Censorship & suppression in Murdochracy, Lobbycracy & neocon Lib-Lab-dominated Australian 2010 elections
19 July 2010 par (Open-Publishing)
Australia is going to the polls in August. However Australian voters have not got that much to choose between: an extreme right wing, pro-war, pro-coal, pro-Zionist, human rights-abusing Liberal Party-National Party Coalition Opposition (the Libs) and an extreme right wing, pro-war, pro-coal, pro-Zionist, human rights-abusing Labor Government (the Labs) led by PM Julia Gillard, these overwhelmingly neocon politicians being collectively known as the Lib-Labs.
At the last election (...)
"And then they came for me" - why decent anti-racist Australians must Vote 1 Green and Put Labor Last
4 May 2010 par (Open-Publishing)
The extreme right wing Australian Government is variously complicit in an ongoing Aboriginal Genocide (9,000 avoidable Aboriginal deaths annually out of an Indigenous Australian population of 0.5 million), Afghan Genocide (4.5 million post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths, Australia is part of the war criminal US Alliance) and the Tamil Genocide (scores of thousands killed, 0.3 million in concentration camps, Australian persecution of Tamils and other assistance to the (...)
UK Labour complicity in Genocide: why British voters must Dump Labour & Vote for the Liberal Democrats
22 April 2010 par (Open-Publishing)
The upcoming British Election is a three horse race between the pro-war, pro-Zionist, racist, genocidal, war criminal Labour Party, the pro-war, pro-Zionist, racist, genocidal, war criminal Tories and the significantly anti-war Liberal Democrats.
Ordinary workers had every reason in the past to vote Labour and to reject the Tories, the traditional class enemy. However Labour has utterly betrayed decent, anti-racist British Labour voters and has turned Britain into a nation of (...)
Why anti-racism, pro-Biosphere, pro-Humanity Australians must vote Number 1 Green and Put Labor Last
16 April 2010 par (Open-Publishing)
In Australia’s compulsory preferential voting system decent Australians are compelled to vote number 1 for the Greens and to Put Labor Last, the key arguments being that (1) the correct strategy is to punish the incompetent incumbent that has utterly failed to deliver on man-made climate change and (2) it is pointless voting for a Labor Party that has comprehensively betrayed its own supporters as well as their children, grandchildren, Humanity and the Biosphere through its pro-coal, (...)
2010 Elections in pro-war UK and Apartheid Australia: Put Labour Last in UK, Put Labor Last in Australia
27 March 2010 par (Open-Publishing)
2010 is an Election Year in both the UK and Australia and hence a crucial year for both the British Labour Party Government of the UK and the Australian Labor Party Federal Government of Australia (note the difference in spelling: “Labour” by the British and “Labor” by the Australians).
The big question for decent, anti-racist, anti-war folk in both the UK and Australian Murdochracies (the Murdoch Empire is the ultimate king-maker in these electoral charades) is whether they should (...)
