   It is the morning after the Conservative victory in Canada. What is different this morning. Nothing has really changed. Is it a change for the better or the worse. Time will tell as they say.

   Democracy makes us believe we can change things. It is just an illusion to sort of keep us happy. I always remember a graffiti that I once saw on a wall in downtown Montreal , that said that if voting could change things it would be illegal. In a so called democratic society the right to vote is considered sacred, but I have noticed that it seems to always be the same cliques that run the show.

  People go to the polls, and cast their ballots, but I still believe that big business and private interests have the real control. Anyway that is my political commentary for this mild January morning.
