Look at an atlas or globe of the world, and see where Australia is located.War is incredibly divisive and wasteful of our people. We get involved in way too many armed conflicts that are none of our business. Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan etc. And for reasons that are not related to Australia's national security.
Involvement in the Iraqi conflict was based on lies spread by Howard and the Liberal party relating to WMD which weren't there.
Reports the ALP were using the CFMEU in an attempt to stitch up a preference deal with Palmer last week ... I suppose that's why they call it politics.
We also head off o/s before the date, but will be back for election night. I love it, no matter who wins, it's great channel surfing and watching all the fun. AG is still the one to watch - we always host a party.... fun night as I don't get all bitter and twisted over who wins. Secret of life stuff!I’m pre polling on Monday before off o/s. Then, I will not need to read any more of this thread.
Antony GreenWho’s AG?
I have not voted on election day for local or federal elections since oh... 2004?Only for a valid reason such as if you are unable to vote on the day at a polling centre.
Far from applicable to everyone. These are the valid reasons:There are many valid reasons... and one is applicable to basically everyone. It’s not hard to apply for a postal vote.
