The upcoming election posted 19 September 2008 in Philosophy DiscussionThe upcoming election by CnaiĆ¼r, Peralogue

news about the American election, or about any of the candidates, no matter how minor or trivial, ALWAYS make the news before absolutely anything about canadian politics is aired. I'm referring to the Canadian news channels.

That's because almost all (if not, all) TV channels are owned by foreigners to Canada. The owners probably don't even know where Canada is on the map, and probably think we're all a bunch of Inuit Eskimos living in igloos and dressed in seal skin and don't even know what a tell-a-vision box is.

Not only this, but they seem to extort even the most irrelevant and non-essetial tidbits of information about the candidates, to make everything seem so blatantly awful. (I believe this may be why the public is generally more reluctant to vote come the time to cast ballots.)

They do it in Canada also. The last time Canadian elections were going on, before Harper was PM, the Toronto Sun had a large picture of Ricky from The Trailer Park Boys TV show on the front page with a blurb that stated Ricky was a fifth cousin to Stephen Harper. The message I got from that piece of info was: Hey all you pot smokers and Trailer Park Boys lovers, vote for Stephen Harper because Ricky is related to him. Talk about irrelevancy! The irony in that message is Stephen Harper is like a Soviet iron fist towards marijuana laws. Paul Martin was willing to decriminalize marijuana, then Harper steps in and builds a wall against it, yet his fifth cousin's role in a TV show is a pot-smoking, pot-growing, highly-irresponsible, trouble-making, prison-loving alcoholic. Go figure.

Anyhow... US politics is a sham and the elections are a fraud. Canada is no better in those areas either. I will vote, but I'm voting Green party. They're probably a sham also, but, at least, they want to decriminalize marijuana and possibly legalize it. There's just too many pros about that plant, besides smoking it, and its long overdue that we take advantage of it. Its ironically amusing that the US Declaration of Independence is written on hemp paper and their first president grew fields of hemp and marijuana, and even smoked it. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Anyways. I think Obama will win. Not that it matters. Or something crazy will happen before election day or inauguration day that the psychotic Bush mob will suspend elections and rule for another 100 years. <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: --> <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post
