Does it grind on you when a politician in power is asked a question, and dances around the edges of the query, or deflects it?
The Alberta opposition parties have unanswered questions about the coming carbon tax.
That’s why they were taking pictures of the sunrise from the legislature at 4 a.m. Tuesday, they were up all night discussing it, and then all voted against it.
You, too, have questions about how one can avoid the carbon tax when you can’t afford to go green.
You ask why charities are not getting a carbon tax break.
Voters upset with vague answers, or, maybe parties desperate for candidates have, in the past, asked me to run for office.
However, a successful Alberta politician recently told me that I would never make it on the hustings because I am too literal.
Is it because I say what I think?
Would that offend some voters?
Would I need to always walk down the middle of the electoral road, not committing one way or the other?
Would literal Layton lose out to vague Valerie or waffling Walter?
Is that how you vote? Let me know.
By the way, because someone just asked me, no, I am not testing the waters.
