Battered Voter Syndrome



Smitherman leads Toronto Mayoral Race????

(http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/torontomayoralrace/article/750562--smitherman-leads-mayoral-race)











Say it ain't so!!!! It's like that Nightmare on Elm Street movie, I think it was #3. That never ending nightmare that just keeps repeating itself over and over..

You know, it never ceases to amaze me... After years of getting raped over and over and over and over by Premier Dalton McGuinty (or Pinocchio McLongNose, or LongNose for short), are Torontonians truly so ignorant that they would vote in his right hand to lead Toronto next???


HE WAS THE DEPUTY PREMIER UNDER MCLONGNOSE!!!! He is eHealth!!

God.. WHY!!!!!


Now, Smitherman is not my only concern. We have the exact same thing happening as well with Pantalone.


HE IS DEPUTY MAYOR UNDER DAVID MILLER!!!! He is the Land Transfer Tax and Vehicle Ownership Tax!!!

Again, God.. WHY!!!!!


I just can't understand it..


I mean, we're finally closing in on getting rid of the worst Mayor Toronto has ever had, and these are the replacements that are getting the most serious consideration?? God, Freddy Kruger would do less damage...

I shutter to think what's going to happen when McGuinty's time comes up...

It's like Torontonians have Battered Voter Syndrome or something. We know they are wrong for us -dangerous even, and yet here we go again...

Here, lets look at the definition:

A reference to any person who, because of constant and severe abuse by a political leader, becomes depressed and unable to take any independent action that would allow him or her to escape the abuse. The condition explains why abused people often do not seek assistance from others, fight their abuser, or leave the abusive situation. Sufferers have low self-esteem, and often believe that the abuse is their fault. Such persons usually refuse to press criminal charges against their abuser, and refuse all offers of help, often becoming aggressive or abusive to others who attempt to offer assistance. Often sufferers will even seek out their very abuser for comfort shortly after an incident of abuse.

Tell me that doesn't sound like Torontonians, or Ontarians for that matter.

People of Toronto, for once, please, lets vote with intelligence this time. You can do it. I mean, if it takes a 12-step program or something to make it happen by the time of the election, please do it.

With voter turn out being as low as it is, I ask (the person who is telling Torontonians to "vote with intelligence"): Do you vote???? - common now, be honest.....

Hey Anonymous, thanks for your comment.

I actually do vote, even though year after year it seems to be more and more like a useless exercise...

But given that Torontonians and Ontarians continue to vote without thinking, I can understand why people are no longer showing up at the polls.. "Intelligent" people that is. ;)
