If our Democracy is to flourish in Canada, Canadians must understand this point about politics…..Attack ads are a tool of those whom have nothing interesting or important to say. They say more about the smallness of the attackers than the target they aim at.
We are entering a political election time (I call it the Season of the Lie), and we are going to see a lot of Conservative attack ads. Watching the election precede, we can liken it to us watching a schoolyard bully attacking another kid. We can stand by and let it happen or we can speak up and do our part to stop the bullying. I will speak up to try so my part to stop this silly and small behaviour on part of the Conservatives Party and Government.
It is not only sickening to watch, and to know that other Canadians are watching and remaining complicit remaining silent while the bullying is going on, but it is terrible destructive to our Democracy. Imagine, we are voting in an election based largely on the information of bullying. That is like voting on a schoolyard bully’s rant.
And when do we have time to listen to the real issues? Where does that leave Democracy when the issues are drowned out in the scrap?
