The Red Pencil

This morning I was happy to know that  the party we voted was the big winner in our place.
Yesterday was the election of our local officials. Me and my husband went to the voting precinct around 6:30 in the evening to vote. Election here is not computerized because they believed that using computers are unreliable. You may say that we are now in modern world that everything is computerized but here political leaders do not trust computers because they can be manipulated by computer experts. We used red pencil to mark the party we chose. That was my second time to vote. My first time to vote was on June 4, 2009 during the election of the delegation from our country to the European Parliament. The election happens every five years. In 2004 there were 27 seats and in 2009 was down to 25.
The evening before the election was a debate. Some parties did not come in the debate. Maybe they have said enough during their campaign so they did not need to appear on the television for debate. We watched the debate. One candidate gave weird remarks during the debate, I think this guy should find a good site for political debate and argument to give him much ideas how to argue. Candidates threw harsh words, rough answers, it was really a fight of words. It was unpleasant to watch them arguing in public. But anyway, that was a public debate, so politicians did their best to sell themselves. They did everything to defend themselves and convince the audience every word they said. We will just wait, if they really do what they said and promised to their supporters.

4 smart remarks:

whatever be the system you use as long as there is no cheating, that would still work. i wonder how phil will do this coming election - the first time to do the "computerized" one as they say.

happy weekend.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
