"No one to vote for..."

Well, if everyone whose heart says vote NDP actually does so, instead of throwing away their vote on one of the big parties, they might form a minority government. And perhaps the Greens and Natural Law, with a Rhino or two, could hold the balance of power.

As for the new broom sweeps clean thing, it sweeps the same garbage as the old broom, just more quickly because it still has all its bristles.

I didn't see mention of Red-Tory Joe-Who.

Not to mention the inherent flaw in any system where popular vote counts for nothing.

I don't mean to post and run, but it'll be a few days till I can check in here again...I'm off to spend a few days with Mom who is sick.
