Oh dear lord, ill break this down:
I agree that we need to get rid of the duopoly but is the purpose of the duopoly to box us into a choice between A and B both of whom are owned by the
same people. The greens leader is either very naieve or he is NWO as he seems to back anything that smells like that. He recently backed the call for
a universal currency.
- The greens are short sighted.
1. The green movement is directly responsible (according to
This Age Article
for the greatest
catastrophies the Victorian people have had to face. He is a Green, thus is also responsible.
2. IF the greens got into power, AU would have an open border policy (meaning we would take in excessive asylum seekers and anyone else who wanted in)
meaning this country would basically goto hell in a hand basket.
3. Almost anything spewed from this "political party" is more just fluff. Doesnt do much but most of the time if you are bored its interesting.
Naieve - No, short sighted, yes.
For these reasons I vote for the no name candidiates because while they can be loose cannons they are also not owned by those who own the to major
factions. They also represent the best opportunity there is of demanding and getting real electoral reform, such as requiring a by-election to fill
casusal vancancies, however caused, and banning the goverment from appointing a replacement.
[/Quote] - Incorrect, Indipendants can and have been "bought", look at Oakshot etc, they have all been "bought" by promises by labor, why? Because
the libs refused to bow to them.
There is now nothing from stopping a goverment from forcing a vacancy and then filling it with a banker or the chairman of BHP or BP for example. As
future goverments go down this new path and create the new 'tradition' or 'custom' we may see this practice in the Carr case becoming common place and
we the people will be further remmoved from owning the goverment.
- Misconception, now i do know that Carr was a loon, and should have never been voted in. But alas he is a member of the Labor movement (IE labor
party), and its under the entitlements if a sound candidate was not found they can use former elected officials (i believe, so dont quote me
We have already been marginalised to being mere spectators to government decision making and not active partticipants. Are we also going to be
marginalised as the electors as votors choices are replaced NWO appointments to the goverment ranks using this back door method?
How i can see this perception, however this is "not possible" with the current constitution, they can possibly buy their way into the political arena,
and buy the current government, however they would need to hold an elected position before being able to enter into the active federal government.
With all of this in mind, right at this stage of the game pretty much anyone who isnt Julia Gillard could oust her from the top job. Pretty much a
blade of grass gets more support from the Australian people. With this "Carbon Tax" (Read - it's a sneaky income tax) will result in more people
getting "the shaft", its being spun as a carrot on a stick, but the policy reads more like, a stick, with the promise of three to four more sticks,
and the carrot is made of plastic.

Whoops missed the topic as a whole. IMHO, at this stage we have 2 options (as AU politics run on a 2 party preferred system for a LONG time):
Tony Abbott - How some of the time i like him, others he comes across as a mind stuck in the 50s, where women where seen but not heard, and if they
are seen it was in the house cleaning, cooking and making babies. He is pro-life (proven by his opposition to RU-426 (AKA. Plan B in the US).
Julia Gillard - Who has a spine made of rubber, and is buckling to pretty much anyone who will give her party policy votes. Keep in mind this is the
same party that wanted to censor the internet using a national filter (using the OFL standards) which would result in a vast majority of sites being
blocked (Like this one) because they cannot be classified under the current legislation and OFL policies (this also includes MMO games, forums and
So could it get worse? Yes
Could it get better? Yes
