WELL no surprises there. Basically exactly what I thought was going to happen, has happened. THANKS guys who voted Liberal because you knew shit all about politics to the point of voting based on schoolyard chants.

NOW that you've gone done fucked the country up until 2016, could you this time actually know what the fucking shit you're voting for next election? Instead of feeling a sense of pride in your humble ignorance, realize that your level of ignorance has cost the country:

  • Cheap education for all income classes.
  • The privacy to go to your grandmother's in Lismore without the state monitoring your every move and creating a dossier.
  • The economy. (Yeah, you know that claim that 'Liberal knows how to handle the economy'? Yeeeeaaaaah they don't.
  • A sustainable (both environmentally AND ECONOMICALLY) fuel source.
  • Not having UN-defined state-mandated torture.
  • Doesn't break almost every election promise a year into term. (Except, y'know, stopping the boats. Remember that? You stopped them? YEAH. How can we forget.)
  • Not increasing the class wealth divide.
  • Not turning the Great Barrier Reef into the Alright Barrier Reef
If you read this bullet point list first, and thought, HEY yeah, that's a party I could get behind! THEN CONGRATULATIONS, there IS a party focused on doing those things, and it's the Greens. But don't take my word for it. Why not read up on their policies? Actually understand what you're voting for.

I'm sure some of you over the sea have heard now about the international reputation of this train-wreck that somehow fumbled his way into prime-minister ship. (Which I am eternally grateful for. We did it guys!) A big thanks to John Oliver,
  
for spreading the gospel. A big thanks to reddit, for laughing at every misstep. And a big thankyou for Tony Abbott, for at least not just being evil, but also comically dumb. A big thanks to sallymcmanus.net/abbotts-wreck… for keeping a running tally.

My final point in this rant, in light of recent bi-partisan support for mass-surveillance on citizens, I'd like to remind the voting public of Australia who are listening, LIBERAL AND LABOR ARE THE SAME THING. On the big important issues, the issues that don't divide the voting base and don't aid in 'winning' the race, they march together. I encourage the established slight of 'Lib-Lab' party, of the much smoother and cleverer 'Laboral' or 'Libor' of my own invention.

I will be voting Greens. Basically all my friends are voting Greens. Here is their leader, Scott Ludlum, encouraging the population to use a VPN to combat mass surveillance: 

Scott Ludlum is by far, in my opinion, the most in-touch, eloquent, and moral politician we've ever had. Watch this speech, then watch today's question time. Tell me who you'd rather be in charge.
(scott-ludlam.greensmps.org.au/)

Sorry for attempting to catch more flies with vinegar than honey, but I officially have no patience for people who voted based on this:




Vote for the Greens! Vote for an independent party! Vote for someone who shares your views, which hopefully aren't destroying the eden we could have.

Remember, Dennis the voting Koala is here to help! chickennation.com/website_stuf…
