I suppose over time my political opinions have become clear to regular readers and Comrades. I would describe my politics as me being a green voting rusted on Labor voter. I want to vote Labor, but I just can't find the party as I knew it anywhere. I suppose perhaps that I am rusted on to Labor ideals, rather than the modern practical party.
Personally, for my hip pocket vote nowadays, it doesn't matter too much. I am of a generation that has large voting numbers and I like my inner city coffee flavoured pinot gris and my taxes being spent on inner suburban public transport and the kultcha stuffs.
But the essence of me is still there. I am the person who likes their essential services owned by government. A government that places priority on the care of the less fortunate in our world, starting in our country of course. I like Australia to be for Australians, wherever they may have come from. I don't like seeing our country taken advantage of by overseas interests.
I could go on until this becomes an incoherent rant. Instead I urge you to read FruitCake's much better written post. I couldn't fault a thing she said.
