If Layton Is Obama, Or Really Nader, Then..

…Bob Rae must be Joe Lieberman.

Seriously, I thought this was a Canadian election. I’m tired of all the non-Conservative parties, including my own, thinking that Canadians are so stupid that they can’t distinguish between elections taking place North and South of the 49th Parallel.

    Strategic voting should have an entirely different meaning in elections now with the new financing laws. Where each party gets annual funding from the federal government based on the number of votes cast in the last election, every vote counts.

    By accumulating votes, even in ridings where there is no hope of winning, Green Party and NDP supporters can ensure the future institutional capacity of their party to launch future elections and maintain a national standing and presence.

    By accumulating only 1000 votes in every riding, the party would receive funding of more than $300,000 per year. This is substantial and could mean future success.

    Strategic voting for the NDP and Greens means looking to the long term … not just this election.
