When you cast a vote for a new voting system, remember that without FPTP we will not be able vote any money-laundering experts or white-supremacists in to lead us.

Confused

Double-speak works. 

The amount of ads I’m seeing trying to enforce that message means there is an actual chance we see some change for the good.

FPTP only serves to keep power in the hands of established political parties.

We already had this debate, and vote, in BC.  Not much else to say.

This time the government that started the process doesn't have a vested interest in maintaining status quo.

I bet we still could. People can fuck up anything... wait, was there supposed to be an /s?  I should always assume that with your posts.

yeah, some of the shit they're spewing is insane, but the sycophants who are lapping up some of the BC Liberal bullshit is just staggering. One would think that after all the the shenanigans we went through over 16 yrs of liberal govt that people would be less inclined to continue to be spoonfed their lies.
