And that is not what our vote was intended to reflect. The knifing of a first term successful PM was also not intended to reflect our so-called democratic voting system. But there you go… it has happened more than once and it has eroded the value of our vote. Who in their right mind would vote for Turnbull’s Party, and who in their right mind would vote for Shorten’s. No-one in their right mind would vote for either.
And unless you are a sexually confused vegan fruit loop, you will not be voting Green.
Throw in a few splinter Parties with preferences flying off to Parties you detest the most and it’s better you stay in bed and risk being fined… which you won’t be! No-one ever is!
So is it any wonder voting in Australia has been made compulsory?
I have never voted, not even for myself in a Federal election and you can call that irresponsible if you want, because it probably is! But in my simple mind I should not vote because that would establish a preference… and I have no preference. To me it’s more important to remain independent, non-aligned, disinterested and impartial.
If I was ever to vote Liberal or Labor (Green is absolutely unthinkable) I would have established a mindset. If I back a horse I will, quite naturally, hope that horse wins… the trouble is I hope they all run bloody last. I don’t want to feel I have contributed to a result that I, and eventually Australia, will be devastated with.
After having been embroiled in politics in one way or another for over half a century, my disillusionment is compete. Politics is a thesaurus of deceit words. Politics is something deeply-flawed people are attracted to and those who aren’t flawed soon become so, as has most of the Turnbull ministry.
As this Federal election draws near it will inevitably tighten, as it always does. Turnbull doesn’t care who wins, he is on what he believes is his God-given mission to re-weave the fabric of Australia into part of a one-world government that will forbid evil, war and hunger, where monarchies, defence budgets, debt and borders don’t exist.
If I thought all that were possible I would vote for his Party, but that view only seems plausible from the dizzy heights of Melbourne's ACTU or a Point Piper mansion.
When Shorten moves further Left to distance himself from Turnbull, Turnbull moves with him and neither is in a nice place. Both embrace sexual anonymity, and neither understands what must follow it. Both ignore debt and deficit and neither believes money will matter in their new world.
Under Shorten there will be no sovereign borders, his Green alliance will ensure thousands more die at sea.
Donald Trump is battling a hard Left with the same ethos, despite his election promise of a southern wall. But, as with all hard Left tyrants, deaths are considered a necessary price of reform.
Life means little under the hard Left… witness Gillard’s $5,000 reward payments to women who have late term abortions or America’s Planned Parenthood that sells off baby parts that were harvested without anaesthetic while the child was alive with a fully functioning nervous system.
Obama encouraged Afghanistan’s poppy fields that supply 97% of the world’s opiates. Lives, even American lives, also matter little.
Witness the Poms’ poor little Alfie who had his life support switched off only for those Josef Mengele understudies called “doctors” to discover he would live on, breathing by himself.
But the parents were not allowed to seek the offered treatment and were forbidden from taking him home to die in their arms. The power of universal health care administered by a Left government is fair dinkum frightening.
Witness Angela Merkel’s “no borders” policy that allowed over a million unknown Muslims to flood Europe. Even ISIS admitted it had infiltrated the hoards intending to bring death and destruction to the West. So they did, and still do! Life means little to the European hard Left.
Underpinning the entire putsch is the UN's global warming hoax where the sheer volume of money has proved it can re-fashion formerly logical minds.
For the new world order to be born the old world order must die first.
