From the outside looking in this was a very odd election initially there were two very strong and passionate candidates who obviously had very focussed (albeit different) visions for the future of the country , Then due to pettiness and sniping from both sides it all collapsed in a heap of *wtf dude????*
*pictured: a heap*
It was very strange to me watching all of this especially due to how the eUS had structured it's elections for quite some time they decided every month who should be president and only certain people were allowed to run plus everyone was directed to vote accordingly , It was a necessary evil at the time due to RGR and his Serbian buttbuddies . This election in eCan however actually looked and behaved like actual rl politics , Forget the backstabbing , mudslinging , name calling and hair pulling people not only seemed to have a choice but they were damn vocal about it too.
Personally I would have liked to see how the DMV3 and Acacia Mason election would have turned out it would have been enlightening to see real numbers showing where eCan stood a month after the outsider came in and got elected but due to everyone going home and taking their toys with them that will never be known.
I have to say Addy coming in and taking the torch and running with it was probably the best thing that happened in the long run , It stopped long time Canadians looking at all of us poor immigrants and seeing a political threat (well so far at least) and it gave everyone a focus toward working on Canadas future as a country.
As I said in my last article I refrained from voting this month as the politics were way too muddy for an outsider to come in and try to influence the outcome especially considering how we were viewed at the time , I do however look forward to next month when I feel my opinion will be relevant and accepted .
Keep it classy Canada your politics may be strange but at least they're damn honest.
