Compulsory voting may not be democratic (how can someone democratically force you to vote for someone, you ask) but mandatory voting does prevent the Marxists of this world from having an inside run to government. The Marxist Jeremy Corbyn came too close for comfort.
Julia Gillard’s political architect McTernan (above) was a raging success this time in the UK but will never be successful here. Most young people here can only be attracted to the nearest Centrelink Office.
While the pundits draw comparisons with the UK experience you can safely, and as usual, dismiss them. You see the UK has voluntary voting and we don’t, and that makes all the difference.
With the exception of Switzerland, almost all nations that have opted for mandatory voting are third world and pretending they are democratic.
Even under Compulsory voting, ten per cent of voters don’t bother turning up (including myself, as I wish to feel independent) and I doubt that millions are prosecuted for not doing so. So what's the big advantage with voluntary voting?
Voluntary voting is all about getting voters off their bums and down to a polling station after you have promised them lots of free stuff. That is still a lot easier than trying to explain ideological differences to swinging voters. Jeremy Corbyn could not have come that close in Australia.
But in the UK it was a simple formula: An increasing number of young people WANT free money. An increasing number of aged people NEED free money, and a diminishing number of middle-income-earning taxpayers need to supply them with it.
So Corbyn only targeted the young and the old with promises of shit loads of free money and completely ignored the middle-income taxpayers. Piece of cake eh! How could that NOT work? It’s the age-old Communist-UN-Islamic "redistribution of income" formula.
Marxism is alive and kicking in our schools and universities and is supported by unions and even supported by many frightened conservative governments.
The trouble is that when you make the middle-income earners pay for all the free money they eventually get the shits and move on. If they can’t move on they find creative ways to avoid extreme taxing. They will always win in that contest because they are up against moronic public servants, Treasury officials and university advisers who have always hated, and have never sought to understand, the concept of free enterprise.
In any fight the private sector always wins while the public sector simply looks at increasing taxes and increasing taxes digs them an even deeper hole.
Has that most undemocratic of all things called compulsory voting actually firewalled us from the likes of Marxists Corbyn, Sanders and the inseparable and dying Shorten/Turnbull duo?
Seems so, because these bastards would need to explain the inexplicable, rather than simply getting lazy pricks off their arses and down to a polling booth. And that takes either a lot of hatred or a lot of fear. Few are that ideological.
Nonetheless, Jeremy Corbyn has used the voluntary voting system to mortally wound Theresa May.
Brexit, the vanguard of a Conservative world-wide rebellion, followed by Trump and now the Paris Accord, will get watered down… and I will bet you the first thing to sate the insatiable Brussels EU will be “freedom of movement”.
Yep, if you thought the noose was starting to tighten around the neck of Islamic immigration. Think again… the amorphous EU and Germany’s Angela Merkel still believe the loss of a few more Brits (and others) under a few more vans driven by demented Muslims following their “good book” with big knives, is a small price to pay for an ideological One World Government overseen by a wealthy and unelected few on the Continent.
Brussels is the European Union Headquarters
Brussels' Grand Mosque, is the ISIS headquarters
Well at least the EU camped in the right place… Brussels is also the centre of all Islamic terrorism and no-one seems to have noticed.
And Islamic terrorists don’t agree with any type of voting!
