A Giant Douche or a Turd Sandwich.

South Park had it right.  Sometimes it can feel like your vote comes down to a choice between a giant douche or a turd sandwich.  More than anything, what we need in this country is electoral reform.  We need a system that stops pitting politicians and parties against one another.  We need a system that allows for cooperative governing.  Where we can discuss the issues of importance, rather than just bludgeon one another over the head with nastiness and other inappropriate conduct.

After everything that has happened in regards to my own candidacy (click here for details) with the Green Party of Canada, I am no longer confident in them either.  Their internal workings leave much to be desired, and this has only proven to me that the party isn’t ready for a chance at true governance.  However, Elizabeth May still has my support – totally and completely.

So…  choices boil down to this:  a Giant Douche, a Turd Sandwich, a Sweatervested Skidmark,  or a Wicked-Awesome Woman.  Normally I don’t advocate voting based on a party’s leadership.  But this time?  I really think that’s what it has to come down to.  So?  Who will you throw your support behind?

Giant Douche or Turd – a Wiki article

As the kids of South Park learn…  it doesn’t really matter if you’ve voted for the winning party.  What matters is that you took part.  Every vote counts, so you might as well vote with your conscience.  Win or lose, at least you will have won the right to complain.  😉

  1. Bah, I can’t say I have much respect for Ms. May, but I am disappointed you won’t be on the ballot.
