MMP in Cartoon Form

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Cruising around the blogsphere I found this Gem:

It’s worth looking at for the cartoon alone, but as a bonus we get this great insight on MMP:

I’m getting frustrated and fed up with the arguments of the anti-MMP forces. We have the opportunity of a lifetime — to actually make our province more, not less, democratic. To make our votes matter. Don’t believe all the propaganda about giving powers to “power brokers” and candidates chosen by party bosses. In fact, MMP means you have two votes — for your party and your local candidate. He or she doesn’t have to be from your party choice. You can make a more nuanced vote, dispense with useless strategic voting and actually have that nuance reflected in the outcome. There is far less potential for casino power abuse than under the first-past-the-post system, which saw Mike Harris trash many aspects of Ontario, despite the fact that 55 percent voted against him. How democratic is that?

Well said!

Nice site, very professional, great graphics, well done New Democrats. (more…)
