Many of us believe that when vote for representatives to our elected assemblies, those who have asked for our vote will continue to listen to us after
they have taken their oaths of office.
As I have spent time looking deeper into politics and those we elect to represent us, I am become more convinced that our elected leaders are far from
interested in those who have elected them, and either by design or ineptitude, they become beholden to other masters.
I once believed that it was an obligation to vote, out of respect, I was told, for all those who died and suffer to protect our right to vote. Today,
I can’t vote for anyone who does not personally solicit my vote, giving me the chance to discuss my expectations of them for my vote.
If our representatives cannot be bother to actively seek my vote, why should I waste my vote.
All too often, the electorate is suckering in by slick sound bites and have been conditioned to believe what the MSM tell them, and that to question
is not desirable or appropriate. In too many instances, the electorate is not given a real choice as all the candidates, despite what they say, they
are in the pocket of the same interests.
It makes me wonder why we are given the opportunity to cast our vote, as in the vast majority of cases, the winner of the election is pre-ordained by
those control them. And let’s not beat around the bush, anyone who thinks the President of the US, Prime Minister of the UK, Russian President and
Prime Minister have their own ideas and doing their own thinking, have been taking in by media spin.
Of course, far too many of the people on this planet listen to the media spin, and believe they should vote and they have a choice, and that those
asking for their vote are genuinely interesting in them, and what they say during the election to get your vote, is something they should honour.
I have decided they if you want my vote, you need to ask me and give me the opportunity to question you on why you should get my vote and how you are
going to improve my lot.
