Do not believe the spin on wasted votes!
The Electorate has been sold on the fact, a vote for a minor Party is a wasted vote, but have they mentioned you have to pay for every primary vote they receive?
If you vote for a Party candidate in your local electorate, they must tow the party line, an Independent does not, and the minor parties are closer to their membership and electorate, so that makes a major party vote a waste if the peoples will is in fact important.
If you vote for a minor or Independent and they do not get elected, the money is saved, if you consider the few minors and Independents that have been elected, do they not seem to better understand the needs of the people?
Ask yourself why you never hear or read about the Independent candidates; even the minor parties are some what silenced by the media.
Why are the names of the grouped Independents not next to their voting square on the ballot, is being left blank democratic?
There are many questions raised when we consider the conduct of an election, the most important is who are our choices and what do they stand for, yet it is the hardest question to answer, why?
Even when a major party is found wanting, or it is known that they have been out right deceitful or undemocratic, near 50% reward them with their vote, does this seem right?
Your vote is all you have, use it wisely, if any of the parties or candidates are not worthy of your vote put them last, give the minors and Independents a go, but only if they deserve it, make sure you cast an informed vote, then you have done your best, and that is all that your country asks.
A wasted vote is an uninformed vote.
