Australians go to the polls on Saturday. We could have a new Prime Minister by the evening.
I wrote about my political position here almost five years ago and it hasn't changed.
Voting is an enormous privilege, even if it seems like a hassle at the time. Many people around the world only dream of such freedom.
I thought this quote sums it up:
And I felt lucky. Because we have a choice, and I think that we vote, not to get the best party in, but to keep the worst party out.
- Jacob Coote in the book Looking For Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta (page 29)
