Yes he actually is, but everything thinks he was born In Germany.

I've always had a love for Australia. I can remember my great uncle talking about the soldiers in WW2. I really don't give a damn about travelling, but I would love to take one trip to Australia.

You seem to have the vernacular down pat.

Morrison is as bad as Abbott - they are the right wing of a right wing party.  Bishop (like Turnbull) would have won this election for the Libs.  I am not really a fan of Shorten but there is no way I approve of Morrison being PM.

I'm American and Jacinda Ardern is my most trusted politician too.

Apparently she thinks capitalism is a failure.

As opposed to all the other systems that work better.

Oh right, there aren't any.

A quarter of respondents said they weren't impressed by any of the listed politicians.

This is always the correct answer

I know you are a trip, but WTH, I'm bored.

Capitalism is not one thing, because property is not a fixed thing. There was a time some people argued a man's family was his property, and men had the right to sell his children and wife, or for creditors to seize them if a man didn't pay up. If you think there's no right to sell your children, you are a socialist, by this definition. I mean, you are literally saying human beings are some kind of regulatable commodity.

So, yeah .There are other systems that work better than capitalism - they are called... capitalism.

And you know what? I voted for her. And next year, I'm going to vote for her again. And there's not a single thing you can do about it.

The polls seem to think Abbott is toast. At least I've got that to look forward to. I hope GetUp! really up the ante against Dutton, too.

Fingers crossed.

I'm also relieved that the senate ballot paper only requires 12 numbers now, instead of every single box. I used to download the entire ticket in CSV and make my own how-to-vote card, but it was a bit of a pain. Now I only have to number the 12 least-evil candidates.

Still, it was fun putting One Nation last, and working up from there.

Begin CSB:

I remember one particular candidate, Adelaide's most well known Madam, who campaigned for a seat in the State upper house in 2002 with the hilariously inappropriate slogan "Put One In Her Box". She preferenced One Nation, reportedly because they supported Western values over foreign influence. There were four or five minor parties in quite equal preferential contention for the last seat, thanks to the vagaries of the Hare-Clark proportional representation system. The decision to preference One Nation led to the early exclusion of progressive and centrist minor parties, but the way they were excluded lead to the eventual election of a Family First (basically an Assemblies of God church candidate) who pushed a right wing Christian moralist agenda for the next fifteen years that definitely didn't help sex workers.

Basically, she paid to fark herself.

One Nation. Not even once.

My mother's cancer treatment would probably have bankrupted my family in the US. Your idea of capitalism will end with the guillotine.

But you know what? Our country has a respected leader and people here understand kindness. People travel a lot and are welcoming. Healthcare is not a burden on someone's life.

See how well it is working for America with all the hate between classes, liars in politics and conspiracy theorists running the government. Try voting right next time.

Preferencing can be a complex business. My electorate currently has a lib on 11% margin, so he'll probably get in. (It's not Dutton, but he did sign "the letter"). The best I can do is make sure he has to sweat it out on election day, and *maybe* he'll realise that he's been given a kick in the arse.

Now, from left to roughly right, there's green, labor, lib, then a bunch of right-wing nutjobs - One Nation, Palmer, Anning, etc. I think I'll have to go green, labor, or labor, green, but then be vary careful to make sure further preferences can't go to the lib. He'll go last, of course (he either supported Dutton's bid for PM, or he caved to pressure from Dutton or Dutton supporters, so he can go f@ck himself). Green and labor will direct preferences to the lib rather than any of the others, so I'm going to have to reverse that. None of the right-wingers will get in, of course, so in a perverse kind of way, I'll have to preference the least likely of the right-wingers in order.
