Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

OK, everyone else is having election tirades on their blogs, so I figure, why not me too? I really should stop doing things 'because everyone else is' but never mind, here goes. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? All the election promises are shallow and unsustainable, and every single party would not just cripple the economy, but many families would be worse off. Unless of course you're extremely poor. So, what's the lesson here? Well, if you want to work hard and work your way up to provide the best for your family, we're gonna tax the hell out of you as punishment. And if you want to sit on your arse and do as little work as possible, have some more money. OK, so I'm not a fool, yes people do have genuine reasons for having low incomes, and these people are deserving of assistance, but I'm so fed up with the burden falling on those hard working people trying to provide the best for their families.

I don't know who I want to vote for, I don't want BNP or UKIP getting in, they're racists, not politicians, playing on the fears of 'innocent white people'. Get a grip, white people are as much to blame as black people for anything. Probably more so; if you give off negative signals to someone, you're only going to get negative back. We should love and cherish every member of the human species for the miracle which they are, not persecute each other. Not one party has come up with a policy on immigration I agree with. And as for housing, don't even get me started on the recent 'pre-election' budget, clearly designed for Labour to say 'oh look how good we are'.

So all in all, what I'm thinking is who the hell do you vote for, which is the best of a bad bunch? I have to vote for someone, people have fought and died for my right, but I feel the election system in this country is not anywhere near as democratic as it pretends to be, and I'd like to see reform.

Couldn't have put it better myself. No, really, I couldn't! I agree 100%. Today's parties are all hypocrites; the oppostion simply say the opposite to whoever is in power. Could you imagine a political rally with the conservatives saying "actully, we quite agree with the way things are now..." Course not, they HAVE to say something different. The end result is no-one is honest, and the public never gets what is best for it...
