Only One Election Question
There is only one election question that needs to be asked of candidates to find out whom you should vote for. It make it very easy to sift through all the negativity of Negative Ads, the lies and false posturing.
The question is: “If there is an issue to which your Party favours, or promotes, but to which your constituents oppose, how will you vote, whom will you represent”.
If the candidate doesn’t immediately state that s(he) is there for the People of the Constituency, and is there for them only, then that person DOES NOT DESERVE YOUR VOTE. Or if you know that your incumbent candidate was a sheep for their leader, then that person is not worthy of your vote.
By the very basics of Democracy, you are voting for someone to represent you. Don’t you forget that or you will get something other than Democracy at the result of the election. You will given away your right to have a say between elections.
This is the one and only question that I ask the candidates before I determine whom I will vote for. And so you understand, in the last 11 elections I have only found 3 candidates that were worth voting for. The rest of the times I have immediately told the candidates that they are not worthy of my vote because they will only subvert democracy by not serving their constituents.
At the Poll, I destroy my ballot. I write on my ballot, “None of these people will represent me or their constituents, they will only represent the party that they are affiliated with”.
Voting for the lesser of the evils is ridiculous, and it is due to this idiocy that has gotten us in this worsening mess every election. It is time we started voting for Democracy.
It is time that we start avoiding voting for anyone that is a party sheep, and instead vote for Independents that will only be obliged to the constituents that elected them.
