Should we force democracy?
Just maybe if we had more politicians who could "THINK" outside the party box , which is controlled by big business , we might head towards a democratic system. But as long as our elected officials dance to the tune of that top 1% , well we will continue down the road whereby we have no power. The old saying " Government for the people by the people", nolonger stands. Now it is " government "bought by big business for big business.

I feel it is time to get rid of political parties.
Ronney: We have 5 political party's and we know that 4 of the five are all the same. The one party that has never had a strong presents in our Parlianment would be the Green Party. But due to the control political party's have , it would be a safe bet they too would be no different. Corruption within our political system runs rife and until we disembowel them...our vote will alway be exploited ...so they can justify their abuse of power. From what I understand about the libertarian party, they would be no different than the other two party's you have...all take direction from big money.

Maithew: ideologies & concepts are being forced upon us daily here in North America...they call it marketing. Business pushes its ideologies & concepts on our governing political system and it pushes it upon we. They do it through legislation.

We will not get true democracies , until we take the power out of the hands of "political parties" . As long as political parties hold the upper hand , business will always run government. We should look towards the best run countries and take a little knowledge from each and build a system that works for the betterment of society, not just the 1%. As it stands right now , our system here in North America has been hijacked by big money , which use our elected members as lobbyest . Time to get a bottom up system , instead of top down . The only way we can force a chane in the democratic process , is to bring the present system that empowers the 1% , down. and the ballot box has not worked for the 99% todate.

Should America withdraw as the world "police / peace keepers"?
Maybe the USA should look inwards and take up a war that is bringing the country down...greed. Now I could also point a finger at my own country (Canada) , poverty is growing in both countries , but that 1% seem to be reaping all the benefit. Here in Canada and the USA we have been drawn into this new thing call world trade, but what it really means is , this is a new buzz word for exporting jobs on both sides of our boarders . As trade increases , our labour force lose out to countries like Mexico and China. Now that is a war that should be fought. I do my part by not buying as much as I can products made in China , India or Mexico. So yes we should be looking for that new thing and one that builds both our economies.

Is capitalism sustainable?
Yes that would be correct...& this is where we are at . We might not be at Fascism, but we are surely headed in that direction. When you see democracies like Cyprus , being taken over by the IMF and the world bank, one can conclude , government by political parties and business have set that tone.

Is the modern method of "inverse leadership" strategy effective?
I believe that, in the future, we will witness more of these situations with leadership and the old "PARTY" system ... because the standard of character of the people that political parties are putting before the electorate is on the decline. Quite frankly, this is yet another example of why people don't go out to vote,here in Canada. One's vote today is simply a process of affirming that we are in agreement with a system that not only perpetuates such corrupt behaviours, but, has no intention of putting in the safeguards and penalties that will make all potentially dirty politicians think twice before attempting to pull the same scams themselves. Taxpayers clearly have no power (within their vote) to control, because the system belongs to political parties.

I agree that politics creates our problems. But our politics is led by the controlling forces of a political party, thus we must cut off support for any political party. We must push for candidates free from the shackles of the party system and promote independent candidates who represent the very constituencies that elect them. You could have the independent candidate sign a contract with the constituency and if the candidate breaks that contract ...recall him or her. As I like to say, political party's are nothing more than vehicles used to hijack ...what should be the "people's" system of governing.
