It's no coincidence that it's only the hardcore dippers that are promoting "strategic voting". The lefties are getting increasingly desperate as even they can see the writing on the wall. The "orange crush" of 2011 is quickly becoming the "orange crash" of 2015.

Vote strategically from last election or get the Conservatives.

Watch the TPP and refugees change polls.

I'm going to make an election prediction right now and I know I'm not going out on a limb: When the NDP does poorly on October 19th you will not lay the blame on the NDP. No, you will blame others. It'll be the fault of the Greens and Liberals who you'll say should have voted NDP . . . it won't be anything that your party has done. That is a safe prediction!

Not at all Urbane it will be because the Greens split the vote.
Never argue with an idiot, they will just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

and you don't understand that strategic voting is a brain-dead concept only promoted by equally brain-dead people.

Strategic voting worked well in Alberta.

Liberals and Conservatives voted NDP.

Strategic voting hurts the smaller parties that don't have a chance of winning anyway, and this comes at the gain of the larger parties. eg. the NDP gains while the Greens suffer. No one has ever lost because of vote splitting though because there's no such thing. It's just a sorry excuse for why you suck. Even the NDPer Terry Glavin says so.

Vote splitting is a myth.

No one cares if politicians lie. Quite a few candidates were fired for providing their honest opinions, but when someone like lyin' Fin Donnelly told a big fat lie, not one NDP supporter cared. They only cared when Conservatives or Liberals lied.

Only Conservatives do not care if their politicians do not lie.
