I have always been frustrated with politics when people said "Well I actually agree with these policies, but they won't get in so I guess I'll vote for these instead as they have a chance". Always I have argued that with that thinking nothing will EVER change. If everyone who felt like that voted with their hearts, what would happen to the results??
This year though, I have been so scared of even longer being destroyed by Conservative power that I have been looking into tactical voting, and who might have a chance. Even with family running for the party I actually agree with most, I have been scared.
But I am done. Why the hell am I going against myself through fear? Giving into fear is what I am trying to raise my children against. If I want my babies to believe in themselves and their values, then I have to be able to do that too.
Follow your heart.
But please, vote.
