The next federal election is in 2015. Currently, I'm comtemplating offering myself up as a candidate. In 2015, I'll be 24 for years old and that is an appropriate age to run for federal politics, atleast in my opinion. This means I have 4 years to create a public persona in my constituency.
I'd have to get baptised into the Catholic faith as soon as possible if indeed this is a calling. I'd also have to start studying different thoughts regarding politics, economics, health care, defence and the environment. My constituency is made up of mostly farmers, so it's be good to work on a farm at some point. I'm thinking both a beef farm and a wheat farm, since these are the main producers here. I'd have to thoroughly research and get various perspectives regarding oil since that is Alberta's premier source of revenue.
Being a devout Christian naturally, will actually come in handy since I live in Canada's Bible Belt. Speaking of which, I'll have read the bible possibly 12 times all the way through by 2015 which will probably come in handy. If I'm feeling crazy, I might just read the Bible 24 times just because that's how old I'll be, but that's not entirely likely.
However, I think that this latest foolishness on behalf of the Harper government simply has my blood boiled, so when it dies down I'll probably change my mind about politics. Regardless, I shall beging prayer and discernment imediately since I ultimately desire to do God's Will and not my own will. That's also part of the reason I'd be running on behalf of the Christian Heritage Party of Canada.
