Hello to anyone I hadn't messaged in my introductory post.
In that first thread, I mentioned I like a bit of the platforms of the Liberals, the NDP, and the Greens. But as I visit each party website and read about their policies, I find it hard to differentiate on more than a few areas of policy.
Given that I am a former libertarian who has since "seen the light" (for lack of a better phrase), I am what you might call a free agent looking for a place to belong. I'd like to get more involved on the left, and thought about joining a party - and the more I read the more I've boiled it down to the NDP or the Green Party.
So, my question is what, in your opinion are the greatest differences between those two parties - and/or why do you throw your support behind either/both of these entities? It may be sad to admit, but I find it easier to figure this out by being convinced through conversation - having visited both websites, read articles, completed quizzes, and watched youtube vids I'm still reeling from all the partisan propaganda. I would appreciate the fine folks here to lay it out straight for me on why 'x' party is the better choice...in your opinion, of course.
Thanks in advance.
(And for any alarm bells that ring with the idea that I was at one time a libertarian...the reason I don't consider myself one now is...well...simply put, I grew up.)
