License to complain

  1. Yes… my traditional way of protesting against the eventual winner.

  2. I am but of course you know I HAVE to be XD Looks like we will go to the polls on 2nd July, our PM has threatened us with a ‘Double Dissolution’ which is his prerogative, and what a lot of people like me consider wrong. We should not allow it to be the right of one person to call an election when he /she feels like it within certain perameters. Should be a fixed day like the US has.

  3. Like to keep my “license to complain” up to date. Haven’t missed a single chance to vote for 59 years. Voting is a privilege, but I think it also should be viewed as a duty. Too bad only about half of U.S. eligible voters see it that way.

  4. I haven’t missed a national election since i was eligible, including, often, by absentee ballot from overseas. I used to think people shouldn’t vote if they don’t study the issues in detail, but I’ve changed my mind on that. Political parties represent important philosophical distinctions, just as reflected in ImALibertarian’s comment. The Democrats offer a government that regulates capitalism for the general good of society. The GOP these days seems to offer a strange blend of oligarchy, theocracy, and chest-beating military aggressiveness. People should ask what they want from government and then vote accordingly.
