As election day looms and as someone with an interest in politics and economics, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to the news of what lies in store for our country.  Discussing how I was going to vote with my two (highly opinionated) daughters, I was reminded of the sage advice I was given a while ago…

Voting isn’t like a taxi, it’s more like public transport.  You’re not waiting for a ride from exactly where you are now to exactly where you wish to go.  Rather, you are getting the bus.  This means there isn’t a perfect option.  Instead, you are looking for the bus route which leaves from a stop as close to your house as possible and which is going to a stop as close to your destination as possible.  Staying home and wishing there was a perfect bus from door to door isn’t an option.  The only option is to leave the house and get the bus which is going to take you as close to your destination as possible.

Whichever way you decide to vote next week, I hope you find a ‘bus’ going close to your destination and I hope that you, like me, are glad to have the choice in the first place.
