I hate to be the bearer of bad news........and I'm not a fan of asking people to do strategic voting, essentially saying you are giving up everything you believe in.......HOWEVER
To point out the obvious - If Harper gets a majority, there may not be any other parties left in this country. He has already tried to get away with Election Reform, eliminating federal funding to our great opposition parties. Will he do it again? Of course!
So where will the Greens, NDP and Liberals be left? Having to merge like the unholy alliance on the right? They certainly will not have a fraction of the funding they get today.
Other things you can kiss goodbye, if Harper gets a majority;
- Goodbye to the Senate, so there is no one to challenge Harpers changes
- Abortion rights
- Gay marriage
- Charter of Rights & Freedoms (if not eliminated, severely edited)
- Gun control
- Public Health care (will be starved of funding to encourage for-profit healthcare U.S style)
This is the tip of the iceberg....In hindsight, dems would have voted for Gore in 2000 if they knew what they now know. Many here have the power to vote strategically and stop the madness.
I love the NDP and want them to form a govt, but that will simply NEVER happen...there are too many idiots who fail to truly understand how Reform/Alliance/Con policies effect real people and our country.
