MESSAGE TO OUR POLITICIANS… Apr 19th, 2013
We should have proportional representation at the polls?
But our politicians look down from above on us, poor souls?
In first-past-the-post systems, the others always loose,
And those who voted for them are forgotten like poor fools.
Why are we banned propositions, recall and referendums?
Should I send my opposition politician a memorandum?
Are our politicians going to ignore our needs forever?
Are all attempts and pleas for change a useless endeavor?
Are these decisions ruled by some high religious deity?
Could we have set-date elections and plebiscites please?
Should I just shut up because of my lack of expertise?
