Election day is coming in Canada (Oct 19). We are about to elect our next prime minister. I am still unsure who I am going to vote for. My heart and my brain are fighting one another for my vote. How is it for you? Are you someone who will vote with your heart even if you know there is little chance (or even absolutely none) that your candidate will win. Are you someone who actually go through each candidates electoral program and choose who you think is the better candidate. Are you going to vote for whomever is leading in the polls or are going to vote strategically for whomever is leading the poll in your county and who is against the party you absolutely don't want to win?
I mentioned election day in Canada, but this is a question for everybody. Election day is coming in 2016 for Americans too. I am interested in everybody's opinion...

I am a lifelong Conservative who will be voting Liberal in this election. Why?
- Because I am tired of the divisiveness of Harper's Conservatives. I am hoping that after losing this election, my party will choose a new leader whose values are more aligned with the old Progressive Conservatives, rather than the Canadian Alliance folks who dominate the party now.
- Because of the three main party leaders, I view Justin Trudeau as the most honest. He's the only one willing to say "straight up guys - we're gonna run deficits". He's also the only one running a positive campaign, rather than a negative one based on fear tactics.
- Because my local candidate is a really great person who I have gotten to know personally over the last several years as my provincial representative, who has come out to conservative social events at local pubs to have a few brews and talk shop with us, who is dedicated to protecting the rights of religious minorities, homosexuals and other marginalized groups, and who I absolutely 100% trust to represent me and my fellow constituents in Parliament.0
