They MAKE you vote?

 

 

Yes, And i think it is a good policy. A couple of months ago i would have said that Labour was going to shit it in. Now i am not so sure. After getting rid of Kevin Rudd and a few broken promises, It's going to make this election a lot lot closer than people think. I would not be surprised if on Monday we have a new Liberal government (i hope not). People may not like the Libs but when they look at the Labour party now all they see is the fact that the last 2 times Labour has been in power they have replaced the Prime Minister without an election. First Bob Hawke and now Kevin Rudd. Those things stay in memory a lot longer than a few broken election promises because we are used to them being broken. Personally i hope that Labour win but in reality both parties have a hell of a lot to prove. No point voting for independants or the Greens either. A vote for the Greens is basically a vote for Labour because of preferences. And when i did my postal vote a look at the ballot paper revealed independants like The Sex Party lol. I will just be glad when it is all over.

 

And on a side note, I read an article in the paper a couple of weeks ago regarding a poll of women that was conducted. I am usually quite wary of these polls and in particular this one cited that out of 500 women polled that %70 were going to vote for Julia Gillard just because she is female. I would like to think that the women of Australia are not that silly. I know it's great we finally have a female PM but vote for her because you believe she has the skills and qualifications to do the job, Not just because she happens to be a woman.

What's so strange about that? 96% - 97% of African Americans voted for Obama because he is black, even though he's a complete dick...

Mind you, that other guy was a bit scary...

I would have voted for him, too....

Anyway....done my 'thing' today.....someone out there is breeding like rabbits....the Queue to vote gets longer every time.

Next time I'll vote absentee.....Postal Votes is the way to go.

Watching your life ebb away in a line is soul destroying....

30 min out of someone's life once every three years is not going to kill them

Last time the queue was so long it came out of the school grounds and went down the street 200 metres... took over 4 1/2 hours to get near the electoral clerk to have our names crossed off.

Watching your life ebb away in a line is soul destroying..

Will be going down much later today to avoid the earlybird queues... hoping that not everyone else in the electorate is thinking the same thing. 

I hate standing in queues more than anything... except bankers, politicians, advertisers and lawyers.

 

Hehe, the Labor bloke here is called Bernie Ripoll... guess what we call him????

No... think more about his surname... a variant of... would describe bankers and politicians perfectly.

Done! Didn't have much of a queue. Some nice old ladies fired up a barbie and cooked up some snags for $2. Money went to the local church. Yum

Well I did my bit to help stuff up the nation... voted for Mr Ripoff and his Labor crony in the senate.

Didn't worry about hanging around for snags, though.  While the queue was shorter than last time, I still wanted to get the heck out of there and come home.... late lunch and a shandy.

Hung, maybe, but unfortunately, though, no gallows will be involved....

Hangman, hangman... hold it a little while

I think I see another pollie coming... riding many a mile.

well thats your right, But you have no right now to bitch and moan about any government hat has been elected. you may as well have not voted at all. Either vote correctly or do us all a favour and deregister yourself off the electoral roll.

Julia got in....my sister's happy....even just sold another sketch of her.....[the one created as a pre-lim for the Archibald Portrait [that's in the Gallery in NSW]....to some international collector.

Thankfully Mister Budgie-smuggler didn't get in....

Uvah

You missed the whole point Nimbin. People have a "RIGHT" to bitch moan and groan all they want. Don't like it leave the planet. Freedom of speech and all that good stuff. As for voting...I'll vote when there's someone or something worth voting for and not until!!!

Definitely the preferable option... given the alternative... a budgie smuggling dipshit with half a brain.

However, being we have a minority government, and too many voters won't see Abbott for being the pathetic weasel that he is, I do worry that Mr, Budgie Smuggler will do all in his power to block government initiatives and force an early election to try to seize power.

Hopefully somebody will put him out of our misery before then.
