Peter T. BS: Obama disappoints again (328* d) RE: BS: Obama disappoints again 04 Apr 10

I don't agree that Canadian politics is like Little Hawk sketches. We have one significant difference from our neighbours to the south and that is that people without money can enter politics and do reasonably well at the federal and provincial levels. Not only that, but we have access to politicians that people down south would die for.   With a few days notice I can get a fairly substantial meeting with both my federal and provincial representatives. For a variety of accidental (and probably temporary) reasons, we have pretty serious restrictions on campaign financing, which is the major source of the corruption in the United States. I despise the current Canadian government, but I don't believe it is beholden to special interests: alas, it is full of true (not very bright) believers.   They actually believe this nonsense, and reflect the dopes who voted for them. The big generic problem is that special interests run the society, not that they run the government (e.g. fossil fuel companies, car companies, drug companies, etc., etc.).
