Election Thoughts...

It's election year, which means it’s the time when we get to hear a bunch of empty promises from politicians. Let's be honest, every four years we hear two lines:

  1. We need to work some kinks out then everything will be good. It's the other party is holding us back from progress.
  2. We need to make big changes before everything will be ok. The current party is wrong and we need to get a new party in place.

What really happens is that a new party comes into place and nothing really changes, because politicians only care about getting elected and don't want to do anything radical that would threaten this. So real change doesn't happen because people are worried about job security. (and who could blame them!) I just don't think that politicians will ever make the world a better place!

I'm not going to lie to you, I'm kinda burnt out on the political process because I don't think it works. I don’t think that the current party that is in power will ever work things out. And I don’t think that a new party, and the change they’ll bring along will make things any better.

I say all this because I have no idea who I am going to vote for. I can’t decide which line is the least false this time…
