Turning green with nausea

A vote for the Green Party does not bode well, letter writers says

Dear editor,

It is preposterous to project the success of the Green Party as a breakthrough or earth-shattering event!

Let’s be honest — the ‘”almost” train is chock-a-bloc with impractical idealistic intentions and desires.

The fact of the matter is anyone who votes Green might as well fill that void in a balloon and burst the bubble of reality.

If sanity prevails and logic dictates, sending an additional Green to Ottawa is as useful as sending an independent for there is no power in small numbers.

In a democracy, whether we like it or not, the only effective way to advance an agenda, a philosophy or a platform of ideas or concepts is to send as many of one party as possible.

That is the only way to ensure that we as voters, as a majority, get what we need, want or should have.

Small representations, fringe politics and one-offs get nothing but fringe ideas, wacky agendas or dedicated soldiers of nihility.

That is why, the so called “proportional representation “is nothing more than lip service to make people think they are getting their “something” for very little.

Let us take solace in the fact that we must do everything in our power to get people to vote as much as possible — this is true democracy and the true rule of the majority. If you want to change the world, vote, but vote for a mainstream party with an agenda that benefits most peoples.

To advocate anything else is lunacy bordering on stupidity and fostering individualism, without meaning, over the good of the masses.

The problem with our society is that these “square earth proponents” control too much in our lives and political process!

No wonder we have too many political parties and not enough achievement.

I think I am turning green with nausea!

John Logan,

Courtenay
