1. I would prefer that I could always vote sincerely. This is one thing
that attracts me about SV.
2. Certainly under Plurality I can't always do so, and I have to
recognize that if *I* have to vote strategically, others will feel the
same way, so I can't criticize others for doing so.
Consequently, for me, strategic voting is a necessary evil under our
current Plurality voting system, but minimizing the need for it is one
of my goals in my pursuit of voting system reform.

ALLOW sincere votes, and it is another for the system to not coerce
people into forgoing that option. In other words, among other things
my ideal system would minimize the liklihood that ANYONE would vote
PS Call me naive....
