One caveat. I am assuming there would be no change from first past the post.

And that is something I am becoming more and more against.

Goop? I'm afraid I don't understand the reference. All I can think of is hand cleaner.
It's Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle company that recently came under fire for dubious health care claims for its products. PORP, like GOOP, seems a bit pretentious. In any case, the web sites seems to simply echo the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. Nothing particularly innovative but I'll take a deeper look.

On second thought, the pro-nuclear and pro-GMO platforms lead me to suspect this may be a corporatist wolf dressed in liberal sheep's clothing.

My concern with GMOs is that they are leading to corporate monopolies controlling our food supply. It seems absurd that if a wind blows GMO seeds onto your property, you would have to pay royalties on any resulting crops.

I know of MANY anti-vaxxers who are quite definitely on the RIGHT. They distrust almost ALL of what they perceive as government-backed science. Fluoride in the water is a Chinese Communist plot, don't you know? Global warming is a Chinese Communist mind control plot, just like Donald Trump believes. 'Over-population' is a UN conspiracy to create a one-world government, and etc. and etc.

But yes, the anti-GMO movement seems to be largely based in the left.
