Embrace Majority

“I’ll focus on what strategic voting campaigns could have done to prevent a majority.”

(Via A Conservative Majority Was Avoidable – Data Journalism, James McKinney.)


So you don’t like the conservatives, I get it, whatever.

But, why the hell does the idea of a minority government sound so good? So we can get nothing at all accomplished? Conservative power was inevitable so why don’t you embrace the decision the country has made and hope that they do such a bad job they flip voters next time.

Sure some bad things might happen, such is life. It’s happened before, we’ve made it through. In the end this is what the country wanted. That’s the point of democracy.

P.S. This isn’t really a reply to the author of the blog post, James McKinney, mostly just me thinking out loud.
