How do we win?

I live in Grande Prairie Alberta. I love the outdoors and like to enjoy nature. I enjoy going into the back country hiking, jogging, and hunting. I the past five years I am shocked and appalled at the amount of new oilfield lease sites and the devastation that logging has caused. Governments like to hand out new laws to suck more money from people, but we are stuck in this damn monetary system where big business can do what it wants.

This country is no better than Libya in that, until we confront our provincial governments by non democratic means nothing will change. TALK SOLVES NOTHING AND MONEY RULES ALL!!! It is time for a rapid change here folks. All the nature that sustains us is disappearing at a rapid rate. We also continue to overpopulate. Another government failure to control.

The devil, false prophet, and anti-christ are already here. It is called money, politics, and war. How do we act to save the planet? Otherwise it will burn in war. There lies our hell. Take a look around. Normal folks have to band together. There is no race or religion, just good people and assholes. Let those of us that care band together.

I started writing this blog because I was so frustrated with the politicians in this country and yes that includes the NDP in Saskatchewan who promoted the nuclear industry so strongly. I stopped writing it because I felt powerless.
