Tactical voting

Just my tuppence:
 
I don’t want to vote against something,
I want to vote for something.
 
I thought that’s what ‘democracy’ was about
(you know, electing the person you believe will represent your interests).
 
This voting system is a farce.
‘First past the post’?
What the hell does that mean, anyway?
Seems to me it means:
"let’s keep it the way it is so that we can continue to see-saw forevermore between two parties, neither of which ever keeps to its promises."
 
Rant over. (My, that was a short one, for a change.)
 
Oh, nearly forgot: ‘may the fourth be with you’ 🙂
