    And the Socialist Labor party would have been better? Putting this kind of power into the hands of a socialist prime minister would have been terrifying. The Liberals are feckless and useless but at least they aren't overtly working for Beijing.

    Agreed. A frenzied mob championing Penny Wong as the next PM is something to truly be afraid of.

    These people are extremists in their ideology in every sense of the word.

    The government doesn't have a monopoly on extremists. Plenty of evidence of that (on both left and right) here.....

    All the major political parties are rotten to the core.

    The problem with a democracy, is that when your enemy gets to vote, they have a voice, when their numbers grow, they rule.

    No. The problem is laws get passed when no one is watching. Laws get passed without a care in the world for the ramification it will have on the citizens.
    And to make it worse................ no one gives a shyt

    Divide and conquer has been at work for sometime now..............guess who the winner and losers are..............

    The problem with democracy is a lowering IQ and a growing short sightedness.

    For example:

    Crowds have been kicked off St Kilda Beach after Melburnians ignored social distancing rules and packed the foreshore on Friday.

    Port Phillip Council said it was effectively shutting all its beaches, including Elwood, Sandridge, Port Melbourne and Middle Park, from 6pm on Friday to stop people congregating and help contain the coronavirus.

    [​IMG]

    St Kilda beach has been closed after police were forced to evacuate hundreds of people deliberately breaking social distancing rules.

    But locals will still be allowed to take a dip or walk the dog - they just can't sit on their towel on the sand, or gather in groups. Gatherings such as picnics and beach parties are banned and people are barred from sunbathing.

    The foreshore at St Kilda Beach was packed with groups of people on Friday enjoying the warm weather and sunshine directly in front of a large sign encouraging everyone to practise social distancing.

    It's the same one party system here in the us.

    Trump is the new right wing socialist and all the repubs vote for more of it.
    Biggest socialist takeover ever in America with this new stimulus bill and no one gets to read it.
    See you soon biden!

    Agreed but unfortunately China already has us by the balls as we are very dependant on trading with them.

    Just have a conversation with the average voter and you'll realise the problems of democracy. Not every idiot should be allowed to vote. The vast majority of people are idiots and thus vote in their leader of the idiots.

    Hence we get a shallow, policy-free fundamentalist who talks in tongues and cliches.

    what does that have todo with the liberal government
    thats not a problem with democracy its a problem with our media. they have dumbed the population down, Just turn on the news and look at this shit they play, you only need to listen to the questions being asked by media at press conferences with politicians and they are only interested in Gotcha moments, not actually getting meaningful answers from politicians, then they just play stupid little sound grabs rather than real information.
    they prefer a soap opera so they create these circus shows. you watch a Press conference in full and then watch what was said in those sound grabs on the news, and you would think it was a totally different topic. Its insane and this is why its the medias fault, the information isnt getting to the general public on any topic.

    One good example
    Covid 19 for example, I watched a press conference with the PM in full, a 1hour+ conference about the rules. full of very good information, but 90% of the questions were in regards to the f'n time it takes to get a hair cut. lol.

    You then move over the news 20minutes later and the entire debate is about weather some one can get a hair cut in 30minutes or not, lol thats f'n stupid shit, fully ignoring the rest of the conference, focusing on hair cut times not the actual information given that would save lives. this is why people are dumb, but then you think they would let go of the hair cut time debate? NOPE the next press conference, every second question was again about hair cut times. lol.
    Any one watching would think the biggest disaster from this virus was you wouldnt have enough time to get a cut and colour. The job loses and deaths werent even worth a mention to the media.
    They asked it so much the government caved in and extended times to just allow the media to move on to the real message, which likely puts more lives at risk. thanks media.

    mean while the media is focusing on bloody hair cuts, not one media outlet was out there investigating why we had a shortage of masks and products, or where all the items from those panic buys were going. Letting it slip out of the country and Not informing people as to why the panic buy began, they only bothered to look after the fact.
