Election In Progress
The CBC reported that estimated voter turnout today was about 50%. What the fuck is wrong with people? Thanks, you lazy, uninterested, apathetic douchebags. Way to go. Now we're stuck with Harper again - thankfully enough people turned out to (hopefully) keep him from getting the majority he desired, if we're to believe the CBC's projections.
The longer I live, the more I'm convinced that the average person on the street is a moron. Seriously, if you went to any street corner and asked just these two questions:
1. Please name four of the five federal leaders of the parties involved in the Leader's Debates.I'd be amazed if 50% of the respondents answered correctly.
2. We've been involved in a military conflict in Afghanistan since 2001 with approximately 100 casualties. Afghanistan has been mentioned in the news nearly every day since that time. Here is an unmarked political map of the Middle East - please label Afghanistan.
Are those the 50% who vote?
