Get out and vote!
I get that politics can be a dirty business. But government shouldn't be. I believe that the party politics should be left outside in the mud room of the Parliament buildings. Everyone that WE elect is there to make Canada a better place for us all. I believe that every MP believes that. I believe that's why each one of them stood up for the last few weeks and let everyone take potshots at their reputations.
But somehow, our politicians can't seem to leave the dirt outside where it belongs. They can't play nicely together to just get things done.
I believe that's the message that most Canadians would like to send: Just Get Down to Working For Us!
Stop wasting time and money, co-operate and compromise even if you have to hold your nose. That's the way we all work together. Why is a government any different?
So, I'm voting this morning. I wouldn't dream of not doing so even if I don't get what I want. I can't imagine why anyone would give up such a privilege/responsibility. People are dying all over the world for the ability to choose. If you don't vote when you can, don't let me hear you whining about the result.
