Second yes if there was a party that i truely believed in yes id be more inclined to go out of my to be able to vote.
But today both parties (that actually have a shot a winning) are almost identical and are just sitting in their cushy house, cushy offices, cushy cars while alot of aussies are being laid off and are struggling with the basic everyday costs.
And lets face it neither are doing that great a job to deserve the perks they recieve.
Thirdly - because i HAVE to vote i did vote julia gilard and i have to same i was let down by her almost instantly.
BUT she lost my vote 100% when she announced on b105 that she will not be supporting gay marriage in some up coming voting however she tried to come off sounding ok by saying - though everyone in her party does get to vote with their own opinion not just hers.
Im not even lesbian or bi but that was just a big no no. Im sure alot of gay people voted her in and her saying that just put a terrible picture of her in my mind along with other views and opinions of her.
I guess not matter who wins, WE dont win
