Give it a rest Dippers, your partisanship has become even more obnoxious than the Libs around these parts for the last week and half.
Now, strategic voting is considered a Lib/Con plot to hold back the NDP.
Excuse me, there are 45 ridings that are in play, where a split vote between lib, ndp and green will give Harper the seat. In some cases we can prevent him from gaining the seat and in others we can take a seat way from him. In some seats the NDP candidate can win if the Liberal and Green voters suck it up and vote NDP. In others the NDP and Green voters need to suck it up.
I live in one of those ridings, every vote that the Green and NDP voter holds back from the Liberal candidate in this election in my riding will help the conservative hang on to the seat. The differences between the con and the lib has been 300 votes in the last two elections. The NDP and Green votes combined equal less that 12 percent of votes cast for the last 2 elections.
Get it, neither the NDP candidate, nor the Green candidate have a chance to win the seat and by voting for them I'm helping the conservative candidate. Yet the advice I am getting from the dippers around these parts is to vote with my heart.
Well excuse me, even though I am more in line with NDP policies, even though I am more socialist than capitalist, even though I have been more outspoken against the Liberal appeasement of Harper than the NDPs, I am voting with my heart.
I'm voting for the Liberal, because in my heart I know that every seat Harper looses moves him farther away from destroying my country.
Get a grip.
