Politics are a Joke…

You will have to excuse this mini-rant, remember I am from a very different country from most of you and see politics here in a much different light.

Last night we were watching the News, checking for closures after the aftermath of Tropical Storm Nicole and generally seeing what damage this huge rain storm did to our local area (we got off light only 5″ of rain). When the commercial break came on, as its election season it was campaign ad after campaign ad, and you know what I noticed?

Not one ad told me what that candidate stood for, all it told me was how badly the other person smelled, how they drank coffee from the wrong side of the cup, parted his hair differently, owned a car with three wheels, how different they were to you, that they wanted power over you and therefore are bad (anyone who notices that irony in that last statement). We are heading into a very important election mid-term here in and I have no idea what policies or even ideals any of them are running on. Its all slam, slam, slam… Nothing of any substance, nothing to mark one candidate from the other…

No wonder 90% of the time he who shouts loudest wins here… Talk softly and carry a big stick indeed… So the next time you see a campaign ad and its a candidate you want to vote for, ask yourself why and find out what they are willing to do to improve your life, not what they think makes them better than there competition. You will most likely find its not that different at all.

The politics in the country are a joke…
