…. more than that I could not do.
Some say don’t worry about winning or losing in this election; honouring your intentions and doing your absolute best is good enough.
If it is true that the mayor and incumbents will be no more after this election. New school in essence being banished for being ‘too new’. Is it inevitable then that we will have a return to old school? Is the ‘middle-way’ option even in the game here?
Hard to say, what with the media censorship and hatchet job and black out of my press release, platform and campaign in general along with my campaign manager falling ill at the beginning and being incapacitated throughout, and with no team or financing to speak of, and of course no advertising budget, it has been tough slogging. But I never gave up…. but once, and even then I picked myself up and did what needed doing.
So even though it looks far from promising I believe it is at the same time far from hopeless. Maybe others have a different take on it, I do not know?
Being a veteran of several election campaigns one always wonders if one could have done more, gone that extra mile so to speak. But you know, I’ve spent years fighting the good fight in trying to awaken in people here a deeper understanding of how things are and why, and what needs to be done to turn things around for the better. Tomorrow we’ll find out if enough people have been listening, or will far too many be like the ones I’ve written about recently who vote for candidates they do not really know due to being ignorant and ill-informed because they were too lazy to make the effort to ‘edumacate’ themselves beforehand. Will we once again be held hostage for another four years because of those who know not what they do in voting in who they do.
People here had the chance to support someone who was standing up for them, but I’m thinking will have chosen not to…. again. So who’s the potential real loser here? The one not given the chance to show what he could do for their benefit, or those deprived of receiving those benefits? As it has been said: “It is much easier to get ten thousand to work for the laboring man than to get one to work for himself.” People here seem incapable of working for themselves, instead choosing to allow the elites and special interest groups to lead them around by their nose like a dumb animal…. as someone recently put it here on this blog.
If in fact this is once again the case then I wash my hands of trying to be the positive difference for the betterment of this community and leave them to their fate. In other words, they won’t have Prince to kick around anymore. In this regard, this post here will be my second to last (after the one tomorrow in which I tell people where they can vote). This last one, I have already written and will post it after the election either on Monday night or Tuesday morning.
I guess with that there is nothing more to say. I’ll leave the last word to my man Frank who always said it best in situations such as this, with his immortal….
Practically the whole human race is hypnotized because it thinks what somebody else told it to think.
