Well, I don’t know about you, but this kid is one happy camper that the election is finally over and done with. It was less than a month of campaigning, but it felt a lot longer than that.
Campaigns get tiring, not only for the politicians, but for the people that have to endure the onslaught of everything that comes with them. It reminds me of kids on the schoolyard. Everyone accuses everyone else of everything under the sun. He did this. She did that. He’s lying. She’s hiding something. It gets so old so very quickly.
The much talked about debate was a complete waste of time. How two grown men could go at it like that on TV was beyond me. It was childish. Both leaders went down a notch on my belt with that one, but it certainly didn’t sway my vote. I knew exactly who was getting my vote before that debate. If you went into the debate undecided, I’m guessing you went away from it the same way.
I think for most people, except maybe the NDP supporters, the results were a forgone conclusion. Something would have to have gone totally sideways for the Sask. Party to lose that election.
Win or lose, I have a lot of respect for people who throw their names into the hat for an election. Everyone running wants to make a better place for everyone else to live, and you’d got to admire that.
Things like this are cyclical. What goes around comes around. It might be hard to believe it now, but there will come a time when the people of Saskatchewan will want a new government to lead the province. Who knows how far down the road that might be. It might be the next election or it might be five elections down the road.
One thing that we’re certain about in this life is that the winds of change are constantly blowing, unless you’re a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Then you’re kind of stuck.
