Quote of the Day

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)
