    Had a very cool conversation last night about how the Libs may consider same sex marriage and that it could happen by the end of the year if the Tony gets in.

    Now would you be prepared to vote Liberal if this became an election promise, a core promise L O L if you will. Which, as we know means nothing.

    Would going back to the Howard style years of government be worth it? Remembering none of the Libs policies have changed since that twit Tony became leader. Or are we as gay Aussies prepared to sell out on so many other social issues to get one core part of what we want?

    i've always been a swinging voter so I have no allegiance to either party and as much as I think Julia has been such a let down, I'd rather be in a country with her in charge than Tony.

    Thoughts Aussies,

    Picking lesser of the two evils (Julia) for me. But a good friend of mine had a point. If there was another party in charge, maybe it will change the atmosphere and pace of the politics here

    We all know that neither party leaders are good. But i will vote liberal just so we dont have a redhead as our leader. I think if abbott did make a promise to legalise same sex marriage he would win easy. The Gay community is huge in australia

    I'd rather vote for the Greens, a party who actually believes in gay marriage as equals. Not throw my vote away on someone who threatens to let the idea slide in, and possibly never do anything about it. Neither Liberal nor Labour leaders actually want gay marriage themselves. We elected these people, and they dont represent my views. They are just doing it to win votes. Why throw it away on just a chance it could happen, when you have alllllllll the other shitty baggage that Abbot brings with it?

    That was a point a friend made last night, that we elect them and yet they dont represent anyones views. Like boat people and the environment, hardly anyone can say they believe entirely in either party anymore, as they tend to just say and do anything for votes on a particular issue, yet at the same time manage to alienate many others.


    Im looking at my local member who happens to be Steven Smith the Defence Minister ( hot in real life he jogs around the Swan River near my old place) But there really isn't a Federal alternative Green or Independant in my electorate.

    I'd definitely vote for buns_n_ammo if he were to run that's for sure!! icon_redface.gif his views are very similar to mine and no need for me to repeat.

    I dont mind voting in Liberals, but think we need to ensure that Tony Abbot doesn't get in.

    Someone a little more progressive like Joe Hockey or even Malcolm Turnbull would be my preference over Tony and his rosary.

    I dont seriously think the greens are an option, most of them dont represent the views of their constituents, let alone the views of the Australian people as a whole.

    I hear you the Greens drugs policy for instance, although I agree with it, is never going to make it with the general population.

    What would be a great move is the Australian Media getting off their arses and actually hounding all polly's for correct answers and policy.

    Maybe Clive Palmers new party will make a difference LOL
