I wish I didn't do politics

"We stand today at a crossroads: One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other leads to total extinction. Let us hope we have the wisdom to make the right choice."
- Woody Allen

Today feels like one of the worst days of my entire life, waking up to David Cameron's fat gloating face.

To be blunt, I am so angry at the ignorance of people, the fact that probably only a handful of voters actually took the time to read the manifestos or to have a quick look through the history books.

It's about principles, not character and charisma, or atleast it should be.

I remember what my Grandad told me when I went with him to vote when I was little. Tories want to take from the poor and give to the rich. Labour want to take from the rich and give to the poor. Liberals want to take from no-one and give to everyone.

One of those thing is impossible in practise.

I am sick of hearing how brilliant Nick Clegg is, the one hit media wonder who's 'support' didn't quite manifest itself into votes. Big fucking suprise there. Do people realise that the Lib Dems have about only a 4% approval rating? How full of empty shit Clegg was. I am sick of people saying how against the Tories they are and yet how they're too lazy to do anything about it or to make that sacrifice and realise that sometimes it is not about voting for who you want, but for tho one who is most likely to keep the ones that you really don't want out. It's marketed as a three horse race when in reality it's just a two. The party that I am in support of didn't even have a representative in my area.

I don't know if I am the only one who feels the weight of past genreations when it comes to the election but I feel it so hard.

I am angry and upset and I have an exam in under an hour that I will most definately fail because I cannot focus on anything.
