I’ve just spent the afternoon trawling Political Party websites, reading policies and manifestos and i am more confused than i was before i started. At this point in time i have absolutely no idea who i will vote for in the Election for the European Parliament.
I believe that i have a duty to vote in every election and that if i don’t vote either in General Elections or Local Elections etc, then i have no right whatsoever to complain about the policies and poor moral standing of any party that my absentee vote assists in electing.
But goodness me, this is hard going. As a person with a faith based system of morals and wanting to put my ‘X’ in the right box at this election, how do i do that when no one party available for me to elect, follows my own pro-life beliefs .
I just about managed to find a political party or two that i could agree with on many of their policies, but then they let me down with their pro-choice drivel policies.
But perhaps that’s all a person can do?
To vote for the election of the party that most closely conforms to ones own beliefs, even if their policies on moral issues leave a lot to be desired?
It’s kind of like electing the best of a bad bunch though isn’t it?
What say you?
