Many-faced blood-sucking parasites

Poly-ticks. Sigh. So another election is approaching, and again there will be endless rhetoric about poor voter turnout. There will also be the "if you don't vote…" guilt trips:

If you don't vote you don't get to complain.

If you don't vote you're disrespecting the people who gave their lives for our freedom.

If you don't vote then it's a vote for the Libs/Con/NDP/New&ImprovedRefoooormParty.

Horseshit, I say. These are not reasons to vote. They are thinly veiled threats to distract you from the valid feeling that there is no one worthy of your vote.

If voting is so damn terrific. then why aren't the so-called leaders doing more to earn our vote rather than spewing the same half-truths and nonsense as every other election. It's the members of the political parties who are "disrespecting those who gave their lives" as they don't show enough integrity to warrant buying an apple from them, let alone be our provincial or federal leaders. Therefore undeserving of your vote.

We should expect more from the candidates if they want our precious X on a ballot. Time to step up!
