What is a politician?
Is a politician a person who looks out for all the people or just the people who voted for that person?
To the best of my knowledge, we the voters are paying them, so they should have all our best interests in mind.
In the past we have seen politicians, on all three levels of government, who for whatever reason, appeared to think and acte like our opinions do not count.
But we can not blame the politicians all by themselves, because we the voters are to blame as well, mainly for not voting.
Now in some countries around the world, in the past and currently, a lot of people are willing to die and have died to have the same right as we have in Canada right now.
Voting is not just a privilege but also a right.
One good way of judging a politician or somebody who would like to be one is not by what they say and promise, but to see what they actually have done.
So next time all of the people who do not want to vote should think about this.
And maybe they should change their mind and participate and exercise their democratic right and privilege.
There are lots of other people in the world who want to but can not.
