Why I am a Canadian Who is Sick of the Election.

This campaign season seemed to never end. It felt like a life time. This election was massively important and I understand that better than most. I voted and I was a very outspoken advocate about voting. But just voting.

Yes, I like many others have their opinions which they feel strongly about but unlike 98% of my generation, I did not feel the need to publicly bash other parties simply because they were the ones that I wasn’t voting for.

During the campaign I felt like every single time I logged onto Facebook I was being attacked from all angles because now just because we have platforms like Facebook it makes it okay to force your opinion down everyone’s throat.

People complain about how childish our MP’s act when they are sitting in the House of Commons making massive decisions that will impact millions of lives every day but the general public is now better. Look at how we act every single time someone says something we disagree with. Now instead of voicing our opinions in an educated manor we turn OUR political leaders into degrading memes.

And I haven’t even started on the immature behavior of the actual leaders with their mud slinging ads.

Editorial Cartoon by Graeme MacKay, The Hamilton Spectator - Thursday, January 30, 2014 Justin Trudeau removes senators from Liberal caucus Justin Trudeau has expelled from hisÊcaucus every single Liberal member of the upper houseÊand has declaredÊthere is no longer anyÊsuch thing as a Liberal Senator. The Liberal leader said the former members of the Liberal Senate caucus willÊsit as Independents,Êand they will have no formal ties to the Liberal parliamentary machinery apart from through their friendships. Trudeau'sÊdecision willÊsee some lifelong Liberals and key party operators and fundraisers removedÊfrom the party's caucus and forced outside its inner circles Ð a foundation-shaking decision in a business where power is derived fromÊmembership in a political club and the ability to accessÊits best back rooms.Ê

Long story short I too have voiced opinions that maybe were not appropriate. I am human but those we also done inside the privacy of my own home, not in a public forum where everyone was forced to listen.

This is sadly the power of the internet sometimes. It can do amazing things but it can also turn around and bite people. Gone are the days where your past stayed in the past and didn’t come back to haunt you via marketing tactics by other parties.

I love BuzzFeed but this is just to much.

I guess what I am saying is please move past the mudslinging and be mindful of what you are posting.
