You’re probably thinking that they’re all a shower, and why should you vote for any of them. I’m inclined to agree which is why I’m saying just vote with your heart. Take a single-issue – be it climate change, taxes, copyright reform or whatever – and vote for the party that best represents your views.
It’s not a wasted vote. That’s what the big parties want you to believe. If enough people vote for fringe parties, others will follow. At this rate, we’ll be stuck with Labour, Conservatives and the Lib Dems forever – locked into a future of mediocre politics, led by the likes of David Cameron: a man whose soul is barely deep enough to sustain a single goldfish.
So why not frivolously blow your vote? What, really, would be the difference between any of the three major parties? Cameron is as slippery as a sack of eels, Gordon Brown is so desperate he’d probably show you his cock if you promised to vote for him, and Nick Clegg is simply beyond pointless.
Aaron says that he is worried about "the surveillance state and corporate influence on politics" and so he will vote for the Pirate Party. That's an option although I—with my tedious belief in property rights and contract law, not to mention the fact that I actually want to see more medicinal drugs developed—cannot possibly vote for that party.
So, where I can, I shall vote for the Libertarian Party. Where I cannot, I shall probably spoil my ballot (although I am undecided as yet).
