Conundrum

12 Jun

Today is election day. For me this is usually like St. Nicholas day and my birthday rolled into one.
I love elections. Seeing the “will of the people” at work.
Seeing the machinations of political machines triumph or unravel.
Witnessing the human drama unfold in non-stop action on the TV.
I usually eat Ketchup chips and drink red wine to celebrate.
I usually vote in the advanced polls to keep my mind clear.
But today is the Ontario Provincial election and we are faced with a poor choice of political leaders and political parties.
The election is a close one so each vote matters.
But really the choice is so pathetic that it makes one want to spoil the ballot.
It puts a downer on the election.
Perhaps this year there will be no ketchup chips and wine.
