Destined to be an Independent

by Jason Fredin

The more I think about the (assumed) upcoming provincial election the more difficulty I have finding a political party that makes me want to vote for it.

All parties have smart people behind the scenes, developing good ideas, policy, and sound bites.

But all parties also have either histories, ideologies, or representatives that I just can’t bring myself to vote for.

So where does that leave me? Currently I consider myself an independent.

Do I see that changing? I really don’t know.

I know that every group has to put their best foot forward with their own spin on matters, but when researched that spin makes them sound like they don’t understand the issue, or don’t want you to (or think you can)¬†understand the issue.

Be very wary of people promising simple solutions to complex problems. They may be selling snake oil.
