Well its over , or has it just begun?
Abbott won in my view he is the only one who can govern.
But we all won too.
I spent the day on a booth that is 50/50.
Only one voter got out of hand, well he said he did not need to vote, and the beer in his hand was not his first.
He chanted insults at the Liberals booth, until I moved him on.
No blood broken hearts yes, but we conservatives and Labor spoke freely and swapped cakes and drinks.
That is Australia, isn't it great?
My mob won too yesterday, a reminder went out to us, Govern for those who put you there not clicks or factions, some honesty ,some insight into what Rudd did that was so bad we had to recycle a version of the Crean/Latham/Gillard/Fitxgibbons failure to pull defeat out of the very mouth of victory would be good.

That certainly was an interesting evening's tv. I thought
of you Belly, and your predictions :) I spoke to
quite a few liberal voters at the booths and all seem to
agree, as a nation we would be better off with Costello
then with Abbott. But such is party politics.

It seems to me that the rot started to set in for Labor,
when they tried to introduce the mining tax in an election
year. That was pretty stupid thinking, for of course many
people in this nation depend on the mining industry for
the butter on their bread. Despite Gillard sorting it
out, it stayed an issue for many voters.

Gillard maybe should have waited a bit longer before
calling an election, for the Rudd saga was still on
voters minds. Then the leaks etc, which destabilised
her campaign.

State issues would have played a role too, in NSW and Qld.

One of the biggest swings was in fact against Wilson
Tuckey, so he's finally gone out to pasture. His replacement
will fight for regional areas, to make sure that the country
is not ignored as usual, to the benefit of city slickers.

So between Tony Crook, who is Tuckey's replacement, along
with the 3 independants, regional voters may well hold
the balance of power

Not meaning to interrupt the thread Belly, but OLO needs you, and others, to vote again - this time for OLO's entry for the Reinhard Mohn Prize.

There's only 19 hours left in which to lodge a vote!

Voting instructions are in the opening post to the thread 'OLO and the Reinhard Mohn Prize: Viewers' votes needed TODAY!'

I agree with Belly for once. This is a good outcome for Australia as a whole. We donít need any more laws, but we do need to enforce the ones we have, and one of these is the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. We also need to pull the wings off State Governments, and a government with the will to enforce and execute and maintain the laws of the Commonwealth as required by Section 51 Placitum vi Constitution, is just what the doctor ordered.

After eleven and a half years, of lawlessness, Kevin Rudd came along and swept it away, and laid the foundation for this wonderful result. This wonderful result should see Andrew Wilkie, Bob Katter, Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott, with voices that will be heard and listened to. Some of our leading lawyers, should be shuddering and filled with fear. It is forty years since the gangsters in New South Wales took over the courts, and installed Judges, instead of the judges required by the Constitution. The word judges, without a Capital Letter, cannot authorize any one to be a Judge, and neither can it authorize any Parliament to create a Court. The word used in Ch III Constitution, court, when it stands alone, is uncapitalised, and we may even get an outbreak of honesty.

With an outbreak of honesty, the myth of State Sovereignty, will be shown for the deception it is, and the legal theft of billion of dollars, without due process of law, will now end. The Police in every State must come under the control of the Commonwealth, under s 114 Constitution, now they are in fact a de-facto army, and the Australian Federal Police must stop being a branch of the government of the day. This is serious business, because the very future of our democracy, depends on the inclusion, as required by s 45 Trade Practices Act 1974, of ordinary people, twelve in number, in every court case in Australia, and the removal of the cartel of lawyers, opening the legal profession up to the national competition policy

Sorry FG I tried then tried again, will do it yet again but getting error messages.
Well got it wrong Labor will have a minority government.
But still the outcome should be better for me and them.
Still look like getting the NBN and who knows what else both party's needed a smack.

finally the two-party...system[suss-them]
has been reduced to the past..
and government..may become..what is was meant/to be

ie the peoples house
for their saftey/wellbeing
not multinational coorperations
or internationalistic..free trade/traitors

but there is still...much rotted chaff
ie lawyers..making laws

two party hacks,..,not realising the party rort..is over
maybe..now we can get the decentralisation of governance...and
maybe..now

we can get govt servants./.actually serving..
not policing the people..for their masters...and backyard hiden men

but time will reveal...
time will see good people returning..to politics
to serve their local communities..

not just the local sports/rorts..club
or their business assosiations/assosiates

its time we revieuwed the whole suss-tem
maybe elected specificlly..thiose who would serve in particular/posts

actualy let the people/vote for who egsactly..will reprersent trade
and who will represent the consumer..not just one party hack..chosen by the party machine

i long-ago realised..that govt should only accordc funding[and oversight..over minesterial portfolio...

that minesters nominate for a specific posting..
then go through a training process..
to get the best..person on the job..serving the common weal..
not industry/lobby

the rot began,,when we got an opposition..
that realised they must oppose..just like any debate

it soon exposed..special intrests..however
as revealed by the miners lobby..not getting a new tax
but smokers..totally unrepresented..did get their tax/..immediatly

we can live in hope..but any hope is delusion

we need representatives that represent...the people..[the living]
not dead...limited/liability..coorperations

for too long..some family trust..has lorded it over the poor
for too long lawyers have ben making laws for the people
to control the individual...person

while at the same time serving a dead corperate/trust
the so called shareholder...who only holds a share of a coorerate/debt
