Above Znoneofthe -
Scraping the Bottom of the Ballot! Last but far from Least! Be INDEPENDENT!
Yes it is true, I did pay to legally change my name to Above Znoneofthe! Since the federal ballot candidates are listed alphabetically by last name and last name first, for the first time in 150 years federal voters will have the option of None of the Above in MarkhamThornhill! It is not a true None of the Above, but it is close!
You will see Znoneofthe, Above - INDEPENDENT as the last (but not Least!) option on your federal by-election ballot!!
Why bother, you may ask. Here it is in a nutshell - I ALWAYS vote whenever I can, and I ask other people if they are voting. Too often I have heard "what's the point"" they are all the same"" it doesn't matter"" they all lie""I don't know enough about the issues to make an informed choice".
Well, I see voting in a democracy not only as a Right but as a Duty as a Canadian Citizen. If you don't like your options then go run yourself! I am! If you let others decide for you, you can wind up with a president like Trump! Just look around the world at people protesting, fighting and dieing to get the chance to vote in a free and democratic election, and you are too busy? Is that what our veterans said when they fought, bled and died in Dieppe? Vimy Ridge? Every other place we sent them? 'Sorry, I am busy, it's too cold to fight today'? Every November 11th when I hear the line 'If ye break faith with us who die, We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Field' I think about the people who do not vote at all and how they are breaking faith!
So if you are tired of the way things are going then here is your chance. You will hear the opposition candidates say 'Send a message to the Liberals and vote for my Party instead." If you do that you will send a message, for one day. But if you vote for ME, Mr. None of the Above, then you will be sending the Liberals a message EVERY DAY for the next TWO YEARS! Every time I speak, every time I vote it will remind them that things are NOT business as usual and if they think they are then they will see a country full of Independent candidates rise up in the next election and take back Our House! It is time to stop putting the needs of their Party ahead of the needs of the People!
