Like UK, RP should reject voting 'tactically'

Citizens of the United Kingdom will be voting hours from now and the parliamentary leaders they will bring to power will decide who will be the next Prime Minister.

I agree to former Prime Minister Blair's assertion that voters should not vote tactically just because the other options are not 'popular.' That is exactly what is happening now as voters I talked to will prefer Noynoy because their candidate will not win the elections. Blair said that voters should go for what they "believe in." He added, "If you think their policies are good, vote for them, but if you don't, don't." It's that simple.

Voters who believe in their candidates should stick to their candidates if they believe in them. I said it in my posts that you should vote because you know, NOT because you think you know. If you vote for the other candidate because of survey results and the bandwagon effect, then you don't even know why you should be voting for to begin with. And if you don't even know why and who you should be voting to begin with then you need to pray. Because as citizens, it is our right and responsibility every six years to voice our gripes and opinions and this can be heard through the ballot. Please don't waste your vote. Please don't vote tactically.
