I have many posts in mind about the election, and I'll try and get to them all eventually, but I'll start with this one.
I've been "un-friended" on Facebook because of my vote in the Canadian election. Apparently I voted for the "war mongering money grubbers" and was wished to die by her because of it.
I thanked her (before she un-friended me) for wishing I was dead and for negating my ability to express my right to vote for the party of my choice, as outlined in Canadian law.
Please remember Facebook and Twitter friends... everyone in Canada has the right to vote for the party/candidate of their choice. Not of "your" choice. That's democracy.
If we all voted "your way", the "correct way"... well, that's basically a form of Communism isn't it?
Instead of wishing death upon those who voted for "their reasons" instead of "your reasons", take the time to get involved, work to hold your elected officials accountable, and don't chastise those that voted for what they believe in, not what you believe in.
Educated discussion is encouraged in my world. I value that I have friends with different beliefs than me, and was friends before the election with them, and will remain friends after.
Ignorance however, is not something that I have room for in my life.
We do live in Canada afterall. And it's our right to vote for who we choose. Just remember to take the time to vote!
