Electorate of Solomon, Federal Election 2016
Vote 1 Lance Lawrence, obviously.
Major parties last for obvious reasons. Our two party system sucks and their words are empty.
The more Lazaruses, Lambies, Oakshots and Windsors we have, the better placed our democracy is to reflect the community’s aspirations in the proper scrutiny of ALL legislation for its relevance to doing the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people.
While sympathetic to all their causes, the Greens have been placed last with major parties for their antidemocratic collusion with the Liberals in the Senate to do away with minor parties. Party fever and prospects of dividends is confusing their “grassroots” origins, and their preference distribution choices in some Australian electorates is questionable at best.
By swapping preferences between minor parties and independents, we stand a better chance of sending a message or a messenger to Canberra.
