I used to think in order to vote you should be well educated on the issues, know your candidates, watch the debates, have real discussions about politics. I think now the situation has gotten too dire. We need to get our voices heard now. I'm not going to tell you who to vote for, or even who I am voting for. Pick a voting method and go do it. Stay up all night researching issues and political histories and make a good choice. Choose your favourite colour and go for it. Vote NDP in memory of Jack Layton, vote not NDP in memory of Jack Layton. Go into that little cardboard box and play 'eenie meenie minnie mo'. Or pick the funniest name, or the longest, or the one that starts with a vowel, or the one that has the same name as your grandmother's neighbour's parakeet. I don't care. I just need you to get out there and vote.
Go here, look for the big yellow posters in your community October 6th, and go do it!! For me, for yourself, for your friends and family and for your children who all deserve better and greater opportunities in this world than what we currently have. Do it or else my next face punch is going to be for you!
