Thank you Ish.

What is needed is some adult education on how power works in our world, and how we can use our power to defend civil society.

StraightGoods and other alternative media are doing some of that, but we need more, and we need more people to care about the greater good.

The key is to always remind readers in the first paragraph that 83% of ridings are not "battleground" ridings. They are safe seats where you should vote your preference, and campaign for proportional represetation so your vote will count next time.

Only in the 17% "swing" ridings does strategic voting make sense.

And even there, Catch 22 is being careful not to take the wrong side in a three-way race, unlike Alice Klein's site which famously elected a Conservative in 2008 in St. Margaret's -- South Shore when her pick, the Liberal, came third, and the NDP lost very narrowly. Watch out she doesn't do it again on her new site "Project Democracy."
