Hi I need help making a thesis statement and outline such as the one below on this topic "Does the Prime Minister have too much power?" Please use this outline when writing
Thesis Statement: A vote for one of Canada's minor parties is not the most effective way of ensuring that your preferred policies are implemented. It may often be better to vote for a candidate with a better chance of winning, even if they are not your ideal candidate.
The purpose of your introduction is to explain to the reader what you will be arguing and why your argument is important. For this topic, you might say that Canada has a multiparty political system, though not every political party has the same chance forming government, or even winning any seats at all. Supporters of small parties must then ask themselves why they vote for parties that are unlikely to win. This paper is one attempt to ask this question, and does so from the perspective of a voter trying to implement as many of their public policy preferences as possible. It argues that voting for candidates that have a better chance to win is more effective than voting for one's ideal candidate when that candidate has no chance of winning.
Point #1: The purpose of voting is to select the winner
-The purpose of a vote is not to take a stand with our preferred party, or to represent the best party, or to make sure our favourite candidate finishes 3rd instead of 4th, or anything like that.
-When we vote for MP's, we are deciding which individual should represent our riding in the House of Commons. If we cast our vote for a candidate/party with no chance of winning, then our vote has no impact on the eventual winner.
-This section might illustrate these points by discussing of how Canada's parliamentary and electoral systems work.
Point #2: Among the candidates that are not our favourite, some are better and some are worse.
-When faced with the choice of 2 popular candidates, neither of whom is are favourite, one of them will be closer to our preferred candidate. Once we realize our preferred candidate has no chance to win, we can still help to select our second favourite candidate (who has a much better chance of winning).
-This section might refer to recent election results, to show how each riding has a few candidates that are very unlikely to win,
