Here in Canada we are in the midst of an election. We only found out last month that this was happening. The day we go to the polls is October 14. And last Thursday, the same day as the Vice-President debate in the States, here in Canada we had our debate. There was one held earlier on in the week in French, and I didn’t catch much of that one. The one in English was quite entertaining. I had thought I chose who I wanted to vote for. But things change sometimes…
I have always been a fan of the Prime Minister because he just lived down the road from me here in Calgary. But, he messes up Canada a bit and really didn’t go through on what he promised. So I picked a guy that I thought that could ‘git-r-done’ BUT when I saw him in the debate I changed my mind. Every question that was asked his way he would sit there and attack the Prime Minister. I wanted to hear what he was going to do…not hear what the Prime Minister did wrong.
It’s funny how things like that can make or break someone’s campaign. It sure changed my opinion of him. Also, I want to note. I have never been into politics, but for work I have been forced to follow the American campaign so that I can write about it. Watching the Americans has made me realize it’s important to vote.
Do you plan on voting in your next election where you are in the world and will it make a difference and I ask you – Do you think we need elections or is society better off without them?
