Another election?

You mean I have go to a polling booth. Hassles to park. Get heralded past idiots trying shove how to vote cards in my hands. Stand in a bloody line to get my name ticked off than expected to write in boxes to elect ppl I don't know or trust?

All on my day off!


Stick your election.

You want a pony. Have you got a good home for it.?:)

Seems this Govt has had a good home. Lots of feed, no real work required, just a pile of horseshit . :bgrin

Francis,?.?. You do understand don't you, what is means to have the right to vote.?
It is a right, a commitment, an obligation AND your ultimate expression of freedom.
It is something untold dead folk have provided for you.
Do not compare it, in any way, to a pony.

It really is the only thing that separates you from many millions of folk trying to survive, today. YOUR vote is your tangible inclusion in your society. Spurn it at your peril.

A right is a right and can never be an obligation

But yes we are forced to participate in this farce called aa Australian election and we do so like the little sheeple the government so enjoys us being.

You cannot be forced by legislation to excise your rights, well not in a real democracy anyway.

Maybe you should research real first world democracies that do have rights including the right to vote and more importantly the right to not vote, like an adult would expect

What is an adult without the protection of the state? Yeh, dead!

There are no rights except those granted.... But for the ones doing the granting: what rights do they have?

And once granted and codified it becomes pretty rock solid, a shit load better than the farce we have with rights quickly and easily converted to temporary privileges or worse obligations.

Why is it that every other first world democracy happily grants basic codified rights to their citizen and we treat human right like some sort of boogy man to be avoided at all cost because we believe the government has our best interest at heart, contrary to all evidence.

I want less government in my life not more.

I absolutely disagree. To say a 'right' can never be an obligation
is a farcical suggestion.

Intrinsically, rights contain obligation. It may go all the way back to DUTY of CARE, I'd suggest. Of course, people ignore their obligations ALL THE TIME. People ignore what is RIGHT, if it interferes with their chosen position. They choose to ignore the requirements of being a part of the social structure of our society, and set out to have their way, regardless.
Pauline Hanson is an excellent example of people who exercise their rights, without acknowledging and acting on their obligations.

SUCKS.

We could get one if Labor wins a few by-elections, tests the numbers of the House and calls an early House-only election "to get more workable numbers" as Menzies did in 1963.

By elections? The following House Coalition MPs have questions over their citizenship.
* Josh Frydenberg (Lib, Kooyong VIC, 13.34%)
* Alex Hawke (Lib, Mitchell NSW, 17.82%)
* Julia Banks (Lib, Chisholm VIC, 1.24%)
* Bert van Manen (LNP, Forde QLD, 0.63%)
* Luke Hartsuyker (Nat, Cowper NSW, 4.56% vs IND, 12.58% vs ALP)
* Jason Falinski (Lib, Mackellar NSW, 15.74%)
* Ann Sudmalis (Lib, Gilmore NSW, 0.73%)
* Tony Pasin (Lib, Barker SA, 4.74% vs NXT, 15.19% vs ALP)

We also have two by-elections being contested, only one of which is safe for the Coalition.

Worst-case scenario - all of these MPS are forced into by-elections (plus one or two others from Labor and NXT's Sharkie), all four marginal Liberals lose with Labor winning three of the seats and NXT winning the other. I'll assume Alexander retains Bennelong though that's not certain.

The numbers would be:
Coalition 72
Labor 72
NXT 2
Greens 1
KAP 1
Independents 2

Who forms government?
