The "I would vote Lib Dems but..." idiots.
Why do so many people in the UK repeat this mantra? "I would vote Lib Dems but I can't trust them", "I would vote Lib Dems but they don't stand a chance of getting in", "I would vote Lib Dem but my vote wont change anything".
Sorry but that's just fucking stupid. The second point is stupid for obvious reasons, if you don't vote them of course they wont get in. Even if you vote them and you don't get in you're strengthening their party's position. If you want to vote for them then fucking vote for them, don't throw your vote away for parties you don't like.
The final point is also quite clearly stupid, if your vote wont change anything why vote tactically for a party you hate to prevent a party you hate more getting in when according to you your vote wont change anything and wont stop the party you hate most getting in anyway following your own logic? Clearly you might as well just vote the one you like most even if you don't believe it will change anything.
But the former point is also equally stupid. How could you possibly know when you've never had them in power to base this on? The answer to that is often "but all politicians are liers", again how the fuck can you possibly know that when you haven't given them the chance? this comment is based on the fact that Labour and Tory politicians have proven themselves to be liers so people's excuse for voting Lib Dems is that they're applying Tory/Labour attitude to the Lib Dems.... and so vote Tory/Labour instead. What kind of fucking backward ass thinking is that? You vote for those you know are liers, because they're liers and assume that they all must be liers without even trying to find out? No one's saying the Lib Dems will be perfect but they might lie a whole lot less than the others - we simply don't know.
As for the idiot who said Lib Dems talk the talk but don't walk the walk because they always vote with Labour anyway, can I just shout, as loud as possible, WHAT THE FUCK???? I suggest you look at http://www.theyworkforyou.com/ and have a look how Lib Dem MPs actually vote. There is a common belief that laws we hate get passed because Lib Dems and the Tories vote for them even if they say they hate them - I don't know where the comes from but it's not true, Labour have enough of a majority to win votes without any opposition support whatsoever and this is commonly what happens (ID card votes etc.).
Regarding comments by the idiots who think using RIPA to spy on people whose dogs foul in public think that's acceptable, if you truly believe that then you better not have ever so much as dropped a piece of litter, better not have ever gone even 1mph over the speed limit and so on else those guilty of allowing dog fouling are equally within their rights to demand RIPA be used to spy on you every time you drive your car, every time you walk the street, to make sure you don't litter or speed. That is what you're asking for and I hope that's what you'll get if you keep pushing for it, maybe then when it effects you you'll see what the problem is.
There isn't a single party with whom you'll agree on absolutely everything, the key is to vote for the party that you agree with the most, or most important points to you on regardless of who everyone else is voting for or who you think will win. At very least if you vote Lib Dem and they don't get in you can stand up when the party that did get in rapes the country and say "I didn't vote these idiots", rather than "Well actually, I tactically voted for these idiots so it's my fault the country is fucked".
It's no wonder this country is fucked when we have people supporting abuse of the likes of RIPA, but only when it suits them. When we have people who vote for a party they hate just so a party they hate even more doesn't get in rather than just voting for a party they like.
Get a fucking grip guys, vote for the party that best represents you personally and your views. Do that all your life and as you get older you might actually see the party in power that represents you and may create a better future for you and possibly even your kids, rather than repeating the same mistake generation after generation.
