I frequently speak with Canadian citizens and they follow everything that is reported.

Of course the media loves the dog-and-pony shows, so they will be against this idea, but we the people’s wishes should prevail!

Remember debates in high school, when opposing sides debated controversies guided by an unbiased individual? No one spoke over a speaker and each person was listened to and given time to give his/her opinion. Not boring … Dignity.

I voted today, but for the first time in over 50 years that I have been privileged to cast my vote, I was ashamed of the whole system. Shame on U.S. for allowing it to go this far!

Please call or write your senators and representatives and demand (nicely of course) that something be done before the next election.
