Voting Day in Canada eh!!
It's that time again, and it's here all too soon.
The entire campaign has been a mess.
Adults behaving badly, scandal, etc etc...but what's an election without corruption?
I'm excited to sit around this evening and watch the results roll in, though I'm sure that I haven't backed a winner. Well, our candidate WILL win in our East Vancouver riding, but as for a healthy showing in Ottawa, it's not looking good. Our 3'rd party candidate always wins, but it's essentially a 2 party country at the moment, so I'm not hopeful.
One of the problems seems to be that Canadians are notoriously conservative, but not in a government sanctioned executions, anti choice, anti immigrant sort of way. We don't really go for that bible thumpin' up heref. Our probable new leader will be a supreme lackey to 'merica for sure, and I'm not sure that he's the best person to represent us around the world. He's a classic YA HOO from one of our Western provinces, but to his credit, I believe he has been off the continent at least once, which is something that Dub'ya wasn't able to boast during his election to office. What is up with that?!?
Oh well, people are scared to vote for who they really believe in, considering it a wasted vote and all, but I'm not letting that trouble me. I'm not lookin' to be a winner, though it would be nice.....I'm just lookin' to keep it real. Cheers. !
