Vote with your feet

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest polling place. Better yet, ride your bicycle.

Vote for the party which will support alternatives to the automobile, not the one whose transportation policy has road and highway construction as its centrepiece. And not the one Buzz Hargrove, Canadian Auto Workers president, has embraced.

Vote for the candidate who will speak truth to power on the subject of an expanded airport at the heart of Toronto, not the one who shrugs his shoulders and refuses to take a stand if it means political cronies may suffer.

Vote for the candidate who understands how the leg turns the crank, the crank pulls the chain, and the chain turns the wheel, with “one wheel drive” as the optimal form of transportation.

And on your way to vote, here’s a Pong you can hum (and we mean “hum” in the Newfoundland dialect, as in “What a hum”):

I got me a great big stinking automobile
I got me a great big stinking automobile

I got me a car and it’s riding on four wheels
I got me a car and it’s riding on four wheels

I got me a car and I’m ready to make a deal.

Chorus:
Oh I’m a politician
Yes a politician.
I can’t spell or read
but I know what you need
cuz I’m a politician.
Yeah I’m a politician

    Great song! I voted in the advance polls because I wanted to get it over with, but unfortunately, my TV still shows all the crappy election ads. 🙂
