The Unconstitutional Political Practice Should Be Ended Soon

By Exegesisme

The definition of democracy: is ruled by the omnipotent majority. In a democracy, an individual, and any group of individuals composing any minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of the majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.(1)

The definition of republic: A republic is a representative democracy with a written constitution of basic rights that protect the minority from being completely unrepresented or overridden by the majority.(1)

From the definitions of democracy and republic, I found that politically a republican regime is more advanced than a democratic regime, and a republic is developed for overcoming the trap of democracy. The definition of republic includes the good part meaning of democracy, but the definition of democracy does not the more advanced meaning of republic. If I have right to choose, I choose to live in a republican regime other than a democratic regime, and I choose to live in a more republican regime other than a less republican regime. The reason is that, if I am one of majority, I dislike the omnipotent power, and if I am one of minority, I hope my fundamental rights are in good protection.

As I measure the politics in Canada, I believe that it is a republic other than a pure democracy. We have a written constitution, we have the Chapter of Rights and Freedoms. However, I also notice that, in political practice, because of the Canadian political history, even the rights and freedoms of the representative function of a MP are under the limitation of the discipline of her or his own party.

"Whether MPs should act as delegates or trustees, both views of representation are constrained by another reality of Canada's parliamentary tradition: party politics and discipline. Most MPs are members of a political party and, as such, are required to follow the wishes of their party when deliberating and acting in the House. In Canada party discipline is much more acute than in other western democracies. In the United States and the United Kingdom, for example, representatives enjoy considerably more freedom from their parties. Canadian MPs, however, are expected to follow the direction set by their parties' leadership and caucus — even when that direction is in opposition to their views or the demands of their constituents."(2)

This corrupt custom, the discipline of a party has been put over the constitutional rights and freedoms, and also over the representative function, is unconstitutional, and should be ended as fast as we can. We, the Canadian people, should ask strongly that each MP should be really responsible for her or his riding, and we need more republic and good democracy, we do not need a false democracy!

      The Benefits Of Reforming Our Senate With US Senate As Model
      by exegesisme
      US senate plays crucial role in US politics. It equally represents each state, balances and adjusts the mood of people which reflects in US House of Representatives. It deals with much farther concerns and issues related to US benefits in long run, which integrate with the current benefits of US people represented by US House of Representatives.
      Comparing with US political system, Canadian Senate is near to useless. Although we have the Queen Governor General system in Canada, which somehow plays partial function in Canada similarly to the role of US senate in US, we still need a Senate more similarly with US senate.
      With a US Senate-like Canadian Senate, the benefits of each province and each territory are represented better in federal level, and some important concerns would be much better dealt through this mechanism than any other present mechanism. The reformed Senate would have many important and powerful committees for researching and understanding Canadian benefits in long strain. And also important, each Senator has the right to run for the Prime Minister directly, which increases the mental function of the position of Prime Minister, which means each senator who has right to run for PM in future, would naturally consider each legislation in the eye of a PM.
      Canada should admit US political system is more advanced in both political theory and human natural expectation, which has already proved by histories of these two nations. I admit our political system has some advantage which US political system has not.
      My argument is all in all, today we should have an ambition to unify the advantages of these two political systems for our benefits and the benefits of our offspring in future and far future.

      Forgive the non-mainstream source but there are plenty of corroborating articles out there - but this one seemed to sum things up quite nicely. The "fear mongering" that the Harper government is accused of is hardly that - and if the media would take the time to educate Canadians, we'd all be better for it......knowledge does tend to temper the divisiveness that the opposition parties would like to propagate....

      Xi Jinping May Reform Chinese Politics Historically​
      By Exegesisme
      On the synthesis of many messages from super-nature, human speculations, and my own intention, attentions and experiences, Xi Jinping may reform Chinese politics historically. The historical political reformation in China, may also play a role to promote the political reformation internationally.
      If this speculation is correct, the long expected Chinese political reformation will become the major un-open topic between Xi and the US President Obama in the scheduled state visit of Xi to USA, and the visit will be described as very successful by both nations thereafter, no matter other differences are there.
      I believe that Xi has been trying to form an domestic extensive political ally, and a major figure in this ally is Hu Jintao, and a figure is Wen Jiabao, each of them has his own reasons in the ally, and others. For example, Sun Chunlan, the secretary of the United Front Work Department, may be mainly responsible for forming this ally for the coming historical political reformation in China, and the traditional work of the United Front Work Department is responded by the first vice-secretary of the United Front Work Department. It is the first time that the major officers of the United Front Work Department of the communist party in China were arranged in this way, and this speculation is the most reasonable way to explain the arrangement until this moment. Also there are some arguments that the real power is not in Xi's hands, but in Hu's hands.
      Although the messages from super-nature usually are proved wrong, this speculation is near the core of my meditation and is not proved wrong yet.
      Major obvious changes are in the opposite direction, the signs implying this speculation are still in their subtle phases.

      8 Weaknesses Of Federal Political System And Reform
      By Exegesisme
      Based on information from
      1, The Senate with its appointed members is the largest weakness
      Reformation direction: Senators should be elected, and a strong Senate is in need.
      2, The government which is responsible to the elected representatives of the people and must maintain the confidence of the House is the second weakness
      Reformation direction: the government should be more regular, which means that the government should be changed more expected and more responsible, usually should be changed on term.
      3, The representative function of the members of the House who are under acute party discipline is the third weakness
      Reformation direction: MPs should enjoy considerably more freedom from their parties, the party discipline should be improved to higher levels, because it is out of natural law and case law tradition, weakens the republic ingredients of the political system, and injuries the dignity of these MPs, as the MPs are expected to follow the direction set by their parties' leadership and caucus — even when that direction is in opposition to their views or the demands of their constituents.
      4, The critical legislative function, which is weakened and less refined and less qualified and then faraway from the largest benefits of Canadian people in long run, the education system is an vivid example, is the fourth weakness.
      Reformation direction: refers to 1 and 3, the benefits of Canadian people in short run and in long run should be well represented.
      5, The number and distribution of seats in the House absolutely on the population, which disturbs the formation of the root political structure and weakens the political influence on the community of a riding and forgets a riding is a basic organic political body, is the fifth weakness.
      Reformation direction: allows the population of a riding waves in a range, pay efforts to the growth of the political leadership of a riding in the basic affairs of its community. I suggest to consider the number and distribution of seats in the House on an index which balances such factors as population, area, tradition, future importance and so on.
      6, An elector, who has residency somewhere in Canada and not necessarily in the electoral riding in which s/he is seeking election, is the sixth weakness.
      Reformation direction: an elector should have had residency for at least 5years in the electoral riding before she or he is seeking election there, this condition is key to improve the representative function, and in turn to improve the efficacy of the critical legislative function, and still in turn to promote the benefits of the people in the riding and the benefits of Canadian people as a whole.
      7, A Parliament, which too easily ends prior to its five-year limit and is less predictable for the expectation of the people , is the seventh weakness.
      Reformation direction: the term of a Parliament should be more predictable for the expectation of the people, which is the crucial factor for the people to promote their benefits.
      8, Most legislation originating with the government, which weakens the legislative role of both MPs and Senators, is the eighth weakness.
      Reformation direction: to widen the source of the legislation.
      In total, Canada's parliamentary system should be into fundamental reformation for improving its efficacy to promote the benefits of Canadian people.
