Information comes to us fast and furiously these days, especially during an election campaign (as we are experiencing, right now, in Canada)
Every day, several times a day, we’ve got one politician or another promoting ideas and ideologies to purportedly make this country, and this world, a better place. We hear statistics, platitudes, monetary projections, party platforms and outright innuendo counter to the reality we are living with.
Many times it is practiced and polished, and oftentimes it is simply wrong.
You have to listen deeply, and skeptically, to what comes out of the mouths of politicians. Despite the smiles, nothing can be taken at face value.
You, yourself, have got to find the facts behind the promises, the posturing, and the outright lies.
You have got to be informed.
You cannot count on the ignorance and arrogance we are forced to listen to day in and day out.
