Just don’t be a socialist. That’s it. The bar is set so low. You’d think they could rise to the occasion. Yet I still have no clue who to vote for after studying all the candidates for council in my neighbourhood.
Even the ones who claim they’re fiscally conservative seem to be promising a bunch of things we don’t really need. Oh, what is a libertarian guy to do?
This speaks to a larger problem though: Life is good. There’s no better time or place in human history for the average joe to live than Canada right now. Technology, innovation and personal freedoms have brought us amazing gains over the centuries. A poor person today has greater comforts and luxuries than the rich a couple hundred years ago.
