Folks, once again we will be asked for our support by various political persuasions. I say we should be asking them to be honest and transparent with their forthcoming promises, it would be a refreshing change from the past.
We all know promises are very easy to make, but very hard to keep as history has proven beyond any doubt. Ms. Christy is on record saying that the promises made at these elections will affect us for years to come. As the last few decades clearly show that our politicians are prone to make mistakes like the rest of us. The difference is that their mistakes affect all of us where as our mistakes affect us individually only, and that folks is a very big difference. Personally if there is an independent person running for office in my riding, my experience tells me he/she is the one who gets my vote this time around.
