The election is quickly approaching and there are so many ad campaigns and articles proclaiming who is the best candidate, who has the best policies and platforms and who just plain sucks, that it’s getting confusing and sickening and trashy all at the same time. One promises daycare at such a ridiculously low rate that it’s laughable, one says he’ll invest in Canada and the other one, ugh. He’s just condescending, grasping at anything and basically has such a look of desperation and a power hungry-beady look in his eyes, that people are rolling THEIR eyes and hanging their heads in shame on his behalf. Don’t look at him, maybe he’ll take the hint and slink away under a rock somewhere. Embarrassing, really.
It seems to have gone on forever, this election campaign. Monday is voting day (finally) and I can’t wait to get out to the polls and exercise my right to make something happen…change or not.
Then, maybe all of this ‘he’s not ready’, ‘he’s unrealistic’ and ‘he’s just an asshole’ will all be over. I think that last one was on TV while I was in my state of dizziness from my back spasm medication…too many burpees (ugh) I’m not sure, though. About the last ad campaign slogan, not the burpees. I’m sure about those.
Anyway, get out and vote. Be counted! Let your voice (or your ‘x’) be heard!
I’m sure I’ll be back to myself by Monday and ready to mark my ballot. No more arguing about politics with the dog. She was getting all confused, anyway. I don’t recall any candidates promising free belly rubs and bacon treats to the doggies who vote for their particular party…do you?

My son attends university in a different province, so I was thrilled that he returned home for Thanksgiving, even more proud that he went to the advance poll station and voted.
My pretty-close-to-adult daughters should be voting too…we’ve had discussions about how important it is for them to do this. I’m hoping they’ll follow through….
Hit the advanced polls here on Thanksgiving weekend, marked my ‘X’ already 😉
So, people vote when they’re on drugs? That explains some of our governments.
They’re giving out bacon treats??….Move over Megs. 😉
Is she a good political debater?
Mags has the ability to debate and win you over with her cuteness all on one fell swoop…
