I've gone through the current platforms for our four major parties.

Here is how I rated their platforms.

Points with which I strongly agree:

NDP - 23 points
Liberal - 19
Greens - 12
Conservatives 5

Points with which I strongly disagree:

Conservatives - 14
NDP - 10
Greens - 8
Liberals - 7

For me, NDP have a slight edge over the Liberals on their platform. I'm surprised that I feel this way. If you had asked me to order the platforms just by eyeballing, and how I've historically voted, I would have said:

Green
Liberal
NDP
Conservative

This has been a good exercise because I feel much better about voting NDP this time around. I was already planning to vote NDP (for the first time ever) because I live in a swing riding, and I need to throw my support in the direction of the guy that just barely beat the Conservative candidate the last time around. It's too close a race between these two candidates to risk splintering off part of the vote.

Realistically speaking, Harper will probably get elected again (much to my deep aggravation), but I'm hoping that it will be another minority government.

What I really wish is that we could get rid of this #$$&^*&%$#@ post voting system.
