I vote : I just refuse this survey on more grounds than it being non- compulsory!

I find the whole ordeal just a bit too fishy for me and seeing that I am allowed to not participate I choose to take that option!

If we look at the media they are basically trying to tell 10 million voters, in concert with the appalling behaviour of the politicians giving commentary on moral matters in this debate as if we were schoolchildren, that as adults we are not allowed to complain about our children being taught to be gay at school!

We have every right to complain about that stuff: so I protest by boycott!

My flesh and blood, let alone everyone else's in Australia, fought for the right to complain about that sort of bullshite!

Now the media and politicians combine to tell us we haven't even got the right to protest!

The whole thing has bells on it.... but that's just little Ol' Mois opinion!

Me me me,

So fight back by voting, otherwise how does anybody know you're doing anything at all but wimping out ?

I used to letterbox, I think for the Democrats, and one bloke intercepted me at his letterbox and said that he wouldn't vote for anybody. I said that, in that case, the people he hated most would probably get in.

In a democracy, we each have one vote. It's not much, but then, after all, there are 24 million of us, so why should your vote count more than anybody else's - but from another point of view, why should anybody else's count more than yours ? Answer: if you don't vote.

Because if you don't vote, others will. Your least preferred option might get up, and by only one vote: yours, the one you didn't cast.

So be democratic: vote, have your say, like the rest of us.

Joe

//I'm going to vote early & often//

You only get one survey, Hasbeen. Opening anybody else's is opening somebody else's mail, which is a crime - for a good reason. How would you feel about some grub going through your mail? What is wrong with you?

You could abstain from voting because you think it is none of the government’s business about who should marry who. You could vote NO because you do not want to see more government involvement in marriage. You do not want a bad situation to be made worse.

The YES vote will only tell us how many people want SSM. The NO vote could mean we do not approve of further government involvement in marriage. It says nothing about our attitude to homosexuals which is disappointing for those who like to claim bigotry.

Of course I shall be voting.

It's the only way I know to let the government know
what I think. The government is spending an awful
lot of money for me to have my say - so of course
I am not going to waste the opportunity because if
I didn't vote and I didn't like to outcome, then I'd
have no one else to blame but myself.

I have to vote and let them know what I think. By not voting
they won't know. The old adage - "Bad things happen when
good people do nothing," (or words to that effect).
