can't say i understand the electoral college all that well

Posted to Poetry and Politics




we have 308 ridings across the country...the party that wins the most ridings forms the government

the pre-election debates included four party leaders, but not the Green Party as they weren't recognized as a national party

my vote and others' votes pushed the Green Party to national status...they didn't win any seats, but they should be able to participate more fully during the next elections...plus they get $1.75 per vote (campaign contributions are limited to $1000 per individual or corporation)

the Greens didn't win any seats, but they are now part of the process

first time i ever felt my vote accomplished something
