I think if I were to run for office I would have to be an NDP candidate. I’m a socialist in so far as I think that capitalism needs to be strictly controlled in certain sectors; health, insurance, and education. I’m a communist in so much as I think that individualism allows us to turn a blind eye to the poor, sick, and elderly in our society.
The problem is they have no idea what they’re doing. Mulcair was spouting about bringing the manufacturing sector back to Canada and supporting the conservative’s niqab nonsense. That’s just plan ignorant. They need a real plan.
Off the top of my head I think the goal of the NDP should be to ease the financial burden of every Canadian with sweeping socialized programs. (Some we already have, some we don’t.) But be up front about how you’re going to pay for it. I think conspicuous wealth needs to be identified as an enemy of free society and systems should be put in place to limit and contain personal wealth measuring in the 100s of millions to a minimum.
Here’s some things we don’t have socialized but should;
- Socialized Life, Liability and Property Insurance.
- Socialized Federal and Provincial Elections.
- Socialized Mental Health, Dental, and Vision.
I’m just getting started.
