WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT ?
I am not politically motivated in any way, i really am not. Like most of you, the upcoming election in England has left me cold. I am as guilty as the rest of you. I do not vote.
Like you i considered it a waste of time, i could not be bothered to put a tick or a cross in a box for a crook, a liar or a pedophile. Then i listened to a speech by an actor and i realised that all this time i had been wrong and so have you. So as the man said, here it is, the plain unadulterated, undiluted honest to God truth.
IF YOU DON'T VOTE YOU DON'T MATTER !!
That's right so you understand clearly that for everyday for four years you do not matter ! You really don't, except for one day.
That's right the only day you matter to the people who make the laws, destroy your lives, steal your money, frack under your homes, poison your water and fiddle with children without going to jail is on the day they need you to elect them to carry on doing all those things.
That's the day they worry about you, they worry that you may not be bothered, they worry that you might vote for the other guy. trust me it's not you they worry for. Tell me honestly when did your local MP knock on your door and ask you how you are, what he can do for you, since you elected him to represent you ? When ?.
In almost every single case i know the answer..NEVER.
So if you do not vote they can carry on can they not ? After all enough lemmings will keep them in a job for the next four years. I always thought that they are just as bad as each other so i cannot be bothered, i was wrong, there is another way.
It is simply this, get registered and go and vote for an INDEPENDENT, someone who WILL listen, someone who will fight your corner. It only requires you to get up and go and do it, take a friend with you, not as a protest but as a positive action. Dare to be different, dare to kick his or her comfy arse back to reality.
If you don't do this, if you allow political promises to make you vote for one of these invertebrates, then do me a favour please. Go and join the other sheep until it's time for the abbatoir and make sure you shut the gate firmly behind you on the way in as i did on the way out.
I MATTER, WHAT ABOUT YOU ?
