Voting Thyme

Honestly, there is nothing aromatic when it comes to voting.  Profanity and preposterous words do come out from the politicians.  He said / she said.  Blame: your fault, nope, you started it.  Blah, blah, blah.
voting placeWhat can I do?  It’s slim picking.  Listening to them during the debate, I envision their noses are gradually getting longer and longer and longer.  It’s Pinocchio time and this is not Disneyworld. 
I hope the ballot will be like spin the donkey or maybe multiple choices or maybe a Russian roulette.  Basically, I shot myself for making a mistake of voting for this person.  Oh well, learnt the hard way. 
This is my chance to exercise my right to vote; if I don’t then I just forfeited my right to complain.  Not that I am a complainer, I just want my right to complain if the need arises. 
It’s so tricky because I also have to consider my personal belief, values and faith.  Who is the best candidate that is pro-Life be it human or non-human at any stage of living?  Then there is the environment to think about.  Is the politician will sell B.C. to another country for the sake of economy?  How will this affect the new generation? The older generation?  Currently, luck is on my side because I am in between these generations. This is too much to consider for a simple folk like me.  
So help me make the right decision, today.

  1. Perpetua, you have an eloquent way of putting things! I enjoyed your post so much, thank you! And you are right, of course, about voting giving you the right to complain … I like that.
    You made me smile once more! 🙂

    • TeeHee, I just came home from voting. Busy place. Tomorrow we shall soon find out whether I will rejoice with the result. I wish Jack Clayton still around. 😛

      • Jack was a blessing who didn’t get the support and accolade until it was too late! I hope the votes goes your way! 🙂

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
