Australians still do think this way. And its these same people that governments need to keep their agenda's, and career's going.
The Australian voting public as a whole remind me of a saying............"you can't fix stupid. Stupid is forever !".
I disagree wih you AD, Looking at it in a very selfish way, I want the best for my beautiful lady. When the LNP were in power, things were really
tough and it urked me to see that bloody gloating Costello telling us how great everything was. When the ALP got in, we can now actually make ends
I still believe that the ALP is for the battler and the LNP works for big business. Call me stupid if you like, I've been called worse. All I am
sure of is that if the LNP gets in next time, there'll be a "tightening of the belt" but the only people it will hurt will be those most in need.
The rich bitches will probably not even notice it. so yeah AD, I guess I'm just stupid forever or maybe just too old to change y spots. I've lived
through the Lib sh#t too many times to think anything would be different. A bunch of bozos with a holier than thou attitude led by a rabbid monk. imo,
We would be going "down the rAbbott hole" big time. A good example Queensland after the last state election.
The word "selfish" may go a long way to explaining your stance ?
I live in a city that has been a Labor voting town for 40 years straight without deviation. Labor does not spend a cent in this city because they know
its a "safe seat". Liberal doesn't not spend a cent either, as they know its a "safe seat" for Labor and see any investment as wasted money. So
in the meantime, the city I live in gets left behind with job closure after job closure, and neither party spending a cent. Another poster made a
comment that Labor have created 1 million jobs, but I notice they didn't put up how many people have lost their jobs in comparison.
If you live in a voting area that isn't classed as a safe seat to one of the parties, then those area's are better off as they then get BOTH parties
competing against each other to make it a safe seat for their party. But live in my city for 12 months and see if you have the same opinion about each
And I wasn't actually saying you are stupid, I was saying that supporting one party over the other without hearing a policy is stupidity at its
finest. If you do support one party over the other without regarding policy, then your approach is stupid. I don't mean that as a personal attack.
But while the average Australian voter [either Labor or Liberal] continues to approach Australian politics the way they do, then I stand by my
comment of ......."you can't fix stupid. Stupid is forever".
