grassroots >> I asked many people, are you going to vote? The majority of the people that attended were low income and their voices were, why bother, they do not listen anyways.

Low income people will come out to a forum, but casting a vote at the local voting booth is too difficult? That is so magnificently stupid that it fully explains why the poor remain poor and the rich remain rich.

>> who is to blame, if not the system itself?

Stupid people who don't vote and who don't inform themselves of the issue are to blame, that's who. Look at Iran, these people are willing to die in order to have their say. If the poor in Canada are to pathetic to defend what they believe in, they deserve to be told what to do.

>> I get the feeling that people like you, have no gumption to actually stand up and fight for what is right.

The people who win power are the ones who want it the most. If the poor ever get mad enough to get off their ass and vote in large numbers, they will win power. There are more average/poor people in Canada than rich, so the numbers are in your favour. If the rich are calling the shots, it's because the poor are letting them.
