Let’s vote

This is no political blog, preferring to concentrate on babes, bikes and balanced portfolios. Plus dogs. Nonetheless, public policy affects the economy, your family and your wealth. This stuff is far too consequential to be left only to the guys running for office.

Thus, I’ve strayed over the line in the past couple of weeks, striving to present another perspective on the eat-the-rich, anti-corporate, tax-and-spend memes of this unfortunate campaign. It seems clear change is upon us. The Conservative leader probably erred in deciding to hang on for yet a few more years. Not cool. But his opponents have resorted to us-and-them politics to win, while presenting wholly unrealistic platforms. Too bad.

Given our propensity to vote against things instead of for them, it’s worthwhile to know every leader has warts. There aren’t enough rich people to milk, for example. Overtaxed corps will just move. Deficits turn into never-repaid debts. And you can’t build an economy out of condos. Having said that, the current guys have made serious mistakes and may not deserve a new mandate. But there’s no white knight. And most people will vote, as usual, out of emotion, scant perception and naked self-interest.

Here at GreaterFool, the nation’s most influential pathetic® blog, it’s time to test the waters. Has the comment section been flooded by Dipper operatives, Lib agents provocateurs or Con trolls? How do most of the people who come here (unlike the weirdos who actually leave a comment) see the issues? What party are you leaning towards four weeks before e-day?

Let’s find out. Vote below.
