I read that in another forum recently where he was talking about the freeman movement...is it anything like that in Australia? Thanks for any help.
As soon as you vote, you consent to be governed. You're basically giving consent to the government to make decisions for you.. You become part of "That society" the "law society". Therefore you have to follow their rules.
I knew some one was going to bring that up...you make a fair point, I had no interest until it actually effected me (but I still believe it's absurd ).
Well, apparently it's not absurd enough to prevent you from starting a thread about it.
As I said, this came up rather quick, I only just heard about it on the news. I don't research this stuff often, as I've mentioned, and I'm just hoping some ATS members in the know can sum up a few of the details relating to Australian law. I am doing a bit of my own research, but I'm still churning through it all for useful stuff, and it is all rather technical and I am a rookie as we've made clear...
Have you taken the time to research this information..?
As for contemplating this the day you have to make a decision...big time rookie move. But something tells me you're comfortable with this status.
It's not really that it's a hassle...it's just that I don't think it's fair to HAVE to submit to a certain Government system just because you were born into it, especially when you don't like how it operates, or the people you have to vote for...I will however most likely just enroll and save the trouble...so who's it gunna be for me...the douche or the turd sandwich...
I know, voting is a pain in the butt, having to go to a school & line up, getting hassled by people handing out how to vote cards etc, but unfortunately it is law & they will catch you one day,

I'm sorry, but that is just despicable in my opinion.
anyone who doesn't vote is the major douche or turdsandwich in my books.
