Already posted on Robocall vote suppression vies to be Canada's own Watergate: (Oldest first)

We do need the political and social will to get to the bottom of this. There are so many other threats to our civil society that we must be outraged enough to demand more information on who, what and why this happened.

Here is a gift falling right into our laps. Instead of hand-wringing over 3 more years of a King Harper majority, let's get to work getting some by-elections happening in the swing ridings where robocalls were implemented. We don't need to get lost in lengthy sleuthing to try and conclusively discover who instigated the robocalls. The fact that they happened should be enough to nullify elections. NDP and Liberals need to contest these elections poste haste!

The impact of Nixon's visit to China 40 years ago has been enormous and mainly beneficial. It may be the time to re-examine what actually happened at Watergate and re-evaluate Nixons contributions. Nixon was a favorite son of Yorba Linda and the Thirty-seventh President of the US. He was re-elected with 60.7 per cent of the vote beating Senator McGovern by 18 million votes. He was the first president to have won all the southern states at a single election. Yet he had to resign two years later. Was Watergate any worse or out of character with the actions of Presidents before and after?
Why were the culprits arrested at the THIRD attempt to break into Watergate? Why did the $100 dollar bills have consecutive serial numbers? Why was Howard Hunt's details in the address books of TWO of the four arrested Cubans? There was a coup attempt in China to prevent the rapprochement. Could the same have happened in the US? Why were the leaks of Deep Throat regarded as the gospel truth? What has Richard Dawkins memes got to do with Watergate? Why would Nixon pass the FEC Act if he was such a bad egg? Read about all these in Watergate - The Political Assassination, ISBN 9780956911940. The book is available at www.smashwords.com in many ebook formats. When Nixon took the dollar from the gold standard in 1971, did he lay the foundation of today's financial crisis? He did bring about untold wealth to US citizens for several decades.

Two Inform Canada supports the view that Canada should transition from a Representative Democracy to a Participatory Democracy. Realizing there is a long road ahead before any sort of reform or re-structuring of our current political system is possible, we still feel confident in bringing the concept forward so that the INTELLIGENT COLLECTIVE BRAINSTORMING may begin in more places than merely the odd living room.
We propose Virtual Think Tanks(or physical if you have enough committed people around) as a possibility for inspired activists or interested individuals to come together and meet one another then proceed to discuss potential solutions for global, national, provincial and even municipal problems. Together we have enough talent to combine our Collective Intelligence into thought-provoking: articles, editorials, blog posts, books, essays, news reports, videos, audio files, posters, handouts, letters to our MPs, text campaigns, public demonstrations, school presentations, mini-documentaries, commercials and the list goes on..
WE NEED YOU! Any and all talents can be combined and utilized to create inspiration regardless of how diverse or ordinary that skill may be. You are the future; you have the choice and the capability to make positive change.
We must be the change we want to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi
