VIDEO – DESCRIPTION:
Every party is often asked: “Who is your constituency? The poor? The rich? Business? Workers?” et cetera. For most political parties, the honest answer is that they try to win collectives to their side, in an attempt to cobble together enough votes to win seats. Most parties are not guided by any real philosophy of any sort, instead playing the numbers game to win power.
Was it always this way? In this episode of FPTV, Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever explains why so many parties are completely lacking in any philosophical commitments, and why they seek mainly to please the majority.
Along the way, Paul relates his explanation to paintings, popular music, and a speech by author/novelist Ayn Rand.
Who is Freedom Party’s constituency? Watch and find out. Maybe, it includes you.
