I have been reading and listening to comments about the political parties, the parliamentary system and the need for and purpose of elections.
I am quite convinced that a great many Canadian consumers (formerly know as citizens) are woefully, excruciatingly ignorant about the system that controls their country.
The one and only reason I dread Canadian elections is the incremental revelation of the apathetic ignorance of what the media likes to refer to as the “average Canadian”.
Rick Mercer used to do a funny bit where he would interview U.S. Americans and ask them loaded, misleading and comical questions with a deadpan seriousness. Laughter would ensue upon hearing the incredibly stupid answers he would receive to his trick questions.
Rick could have saved a lot of travel time and money by staying in Canada and asking the same questions.
Enjoy this silly month of regurgitated attack ad slogans, partisan talking points and intelligence insulting "promises".
Try not to let the throbbing waves of stupid hurt your face.
