If you want to frolic with an elephant, now’s your chance. It is the beast snickering behind you as you cast your ballot. Sure, you can vote for Doug Ford and his cronies. They are using you, as you think you are using them.
But that defiance on your part—that vote for Ford’s cabal—is not going to solve your issues. You think your vote is going to stick it up the backside of the man? Yet the only backside that will feel it is yours.
We have just come through the worst of a world-wide pandemic. There is the danger of a world war in the offing in Europe. Inflation is rampant everywhere and there is no easy fix for it. We can all visualize the fat cats in their office towers getting rich on their profiteering and our suffering.
But do you really want someone as ignorant as Ford to help you get even?
Doug Ford is there for Doug Ford, not for you. He has no time for you if you elect him and his cronies again. Ford is a fraud.
Maybe we can get his sticker company to print labels you can wear saying: “I’ve been screwed by Doug Ford.”
And you best keep that job you’ve got. There are two sides to an inflationary cycle. The second side is all downhill. Ford has already screwed all the destitute people on ODSP and Ontario Works. He cut those programs back four years ago. You might not have noticed. The food banks were all closing during the pandemic. You might not have noticed. On the downside, you are going to discover the truth of that “screwed” sticker.
Doug Ford wants to pave his way across the farmlands and wetlands of Ontario with superhighways you do not need. He is doing it for his developer friends. They know how to show appreciation to a politician.
Mind you, he has already told you what you will get for voting for him. He thinks your vote is worth five cents. And that is what he says he will take off the Ontario tax on gasoline—if you vote for him.
