What stuck me as odd?
I take my voting right very seriously ( in case you couldn't guess) and to me it is my resposibility to make sure I vote for the person and party who I think will do best job for the country and us.
So I asked my friend, 'aren't you even interested in what they will say or what they are planning to do?' and he said "No! I have always voted for"****" and I will this time round...."
This prompted the question "why!" and I was told "I can't be bothered thinking about it, the environment will be taken care of and I like my job it pays me the big dollars and so long I have the money coming in that is all I am worried about..."
'What about the Pulp Mill, health, the hospitals, schools and everything else that needs fixing?'
To this the response was even more shallow than I thought possible: 'the pulp mill, will bring jobs, health well if you want it you can pay for it, education my kids are in private school and do well and I don't care about anyting else, because it will be fixed or I will pay for it privately...if people want those other things such as health care they can get a job and pay for it"
Oh my God! is this what we have become a bunch of selfish, shallow, thoughtless people who have no time for those who need help,
or do we give a dam about what we will leave our kids in the future.....
I hope it is the latter... because the former is tragidy waiting to happen unless we are already there...
Tell Me Do you Really Care?
