Thus Sayeth The Pundit

We all have to take some individual responsibility. Don’t like politicians? Go vote. Got a better idea about running the country? Let’s hear it. Know better than the business and media leaders? Then show up at last to help fix it yourself.
In a first past the post system, voting (unless you live in a swing riding)is a waste of time. Yes, we had a better idea, it was called electoral reform. Your friends at the Toronto Star (as well as many, many other of our media betters) moved heaven and earth to crush it. So pardon me if I am cynical about the system.
