Let the bafflegab begin
Oh goody! The electioneering has begun.
Let the cackling, bafflegab, and bamboozlement begin. In the end, however, I will yet again be left with having to choose between the lesser of evils – of trying as best I can to determine which person and/or party might possibly be a touch more honest and ethical, and might do somewhat less damage to the economy, social services, or the environment than the other.
Absolutes, such as ‘totally’ and ‘none’ are not possible when it comes to politics and politicians in British Columbia - everything is inexorably reduced to such relative contexts.
So, if you’re not inclined to trust anyone, what might be left to make an informed choice about?
The lesser of evils, that’s what! Heck of a way to participate in the democratic process, isn’t it! But, come-on, you can do it! Hunker down and try your best to decipher your way through that tsunami of bloated rhetoric that is coming our way.
Somewhere you might find a small but important nugget of information, an essential clue that will tell you that while casting your vote in this direction might not make you feel all that warm and fuzzy, the alternative would make you feel even less so.
It’s either that, or give up altogether.
