Vote, damn you Vote

Democracy depends on people casting votes that are meaningful to their lives.

In this article voters are being encouraged to “vote strategically”, basically to encourage voters to prevent a change of government to Conservative by not “wasting” a vote on the Liberal Democrats but going for more of the same (Labour) as a change to the right-wing Conservatives is “untenable”.

What utter nonsense.

If everyone examines the actual policy of each party and casts their vote for that, then a government can be formed that reflects the democratic wishes of the majority, not manipulate the vote according to fears of what may happen if “we let the Tories take power”.

Democratic choice is about evolution, not fear.

The change mechanism that depends upon fear is called War. Revolution results from massive disapproval following a failure of democratic choice.
