Think long and hard before you cast your vote
Election time has come around once more and all the political parasites have emerged from God knows what dark fleapits they have been hiding in for the past few years. As usual, they have been campaigning and rousing their supporters with empty promises. I hope when people go to the polls they are aware that their choices are limited; it is either they are voting for a party full of ticks or a party full of hookworms. In either case, whoever you decide to vote for on Monday 21st, when Tuesday 22nd arrives, it would be “ketch ass” as usual for the poor people in this country.
As for the youths who would be voting for the first time (those who did not go to school and those who went to school but act as though they never went to school), before you go out and cast your ballot, I would advise that you take some time and listen to “A Madman’s Rant” by David Rudder (1996). It is a wonderful song with some profound lyrics. After listening to that song and considering the political choices in this election, I would say to the public: give me the chant of a madman, for it is our only salvation!
As for the working population — and in this case the working population to whom I am referring are the poor saps that are working for the minimum wage and do not have the benefit of a union to seek their interest — remember, unions only seek the interest of workers who pay union fees, otherwise, we all would be unionised.
Before casting your vote, I urge you to consider these lyrics by Ray Davies:
“I am sick and tired of being promised this and that. I work all day; I sweat and slave to keep the wealthy fat. They fill my head with promises and bamboozle me with facts, then they put on false sincerity and then they laugh behind my back. Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man. Pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep. Hell! I am tired of hearing promises that I know they’ll never keep.”
Remember to go out and vote on Monday 21st 2013 my fellow Oompa-Loompas!
