Who the HELL voted for them in the last!
I thought there maybe a way to oust them!

I did not vote for them and disagree with what they stand for but unfortunately this is the government that was elected via our democratic process and I respect the process. It is very sad that people were fooled by terms like "budget emergency" and "stop the boats" but people made a choice and this is the outcome. I'd say a lot of the people who were fooled are now negatively effected and won't vote the same way again.. But a lot can happen and people forget so I wouldn't be surprised if they got a second term.

Alot of people didn't vote for for the liberal party, but they did fail to check where the preference would go to for the party they did vote for. Most people assume that by voting for a smaller party they are avoiding giving their vote to either of the two big parties.

There isnt anything you can do to change the government until the next election
(that is why they are bringing in this kind of budget now, rather than later - they manufacture a far greater problem than is the true situation in order to blame it on the previous government, and make a super tough budget now knowing there is not much people can do now, and in the hope that they can bribe you back again in future budgets closer to the election)
To protest about particular measures in the budget, contact your local member of parliament, or other MP's in other parties in your state. Get active on facebook and twitter, on their web pages and comment sections. Comment on newspaper comment sections and blogs.
The more people who speak out, the more notice will be taken.
Political parties DO take notice of social media. Its much cheaper for them to monitor than polling, and gives them a good idea of the passion of the response .... so give them passion

stupid electoral process. It would be much clearer if people had to put one name in the box - not one more.
and then you do a second round with the 2 names that had the more votes.
that way parties can do horse trading tactics behind the scenes and the people stay in control to who their votes go to.

A lot of liberal voters voted based on certain promises. It's not always the voters fault...they have been left disappointed in a government that said one thing to get the votes and then flipped.

They are saying on the news this morning that if the budget does not get through the senate then TA may call another election.
I highly doubt the man could be that dumb though....

The budget still has to pass thru both houses of parliament, if the greens & labor oppose like they say they will it could lead to double dissolution which may result in an election.
