Mark Your Ballot with an "X"

It's not as ironic as one might think. Just as the illiterate sign off with an "X", Canadians, a politically illiterate lot, do the same on election day. Entering a contract of further governance by a system grounded on sociopathic economics (all viable parties willingly operate within the same economically driven political paradigm), the voter dutifully marks the ballot with an "X". Seen this way, voting cannot bring us change; it can only provide more of the same. And isn't that exactly what we have been witnessing the last century or more?
