    So did everybody go vote today? Got to take my pick of a city council member, some school-board members, and a school tax-levy. Not exactly an exciting election here in Suburbia. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Goo, do you have actual good choices in the running, unlike the States did last time around? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (Bush's current 90% approval rating notwithstanding) [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]

    I didn't bother. I live outside the city limits - all the county had to vote on this time were the usual tax levies that ALWAYS pass (police, fire, hospital, mental retardation).

    People in the city (Cincinnati) had a big election though. The first year of the "strong mayor" position. Incumbant mayor (a white man, former/current politician, and former newsanchorman) by the name of Charlie Luken won. His opponent was a black fellow and another former newsanchorman. Ironically, both were from the same TV station [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Given the riots we had here, you can imagine why a white vs black election was a big draw.

    Not really no. Both sides of politics here are so similar, bland and inoffensive these days the concept of visionary leadership has been forgotten. Each side becoming virtually indistinguishable from the other. And whats with the damn baby kissing - isnt that such a cliche no self respecting politician wouldnt go near one with a barge pole? Apparantly not!

    Anyways, for the record, the current government is the liberal party, which is roughly equivilent to your republican party (ironically) and led by John 'the eybrow' Howard. The Labor party is the opposition - rough equivelent to your democratic party, although more tied in with the trade union movement, and led by Big Kim Beasley.

    Polling is close at this point although I think the Liberals will shit it in, mainly due to some crafty playing politics with some illegal immigrants, and the sept 11 fears here. Full points for subtle use of the race card :nasty:

    One of the minor parties here (the Australian Democrats) run a TV ad portraying the leaders of the 2 major parties as yapping dogs. Seemed to sum it all up nicely.

    Of course the Aus. Democrats are a bunch of leftie nutters whose most recent brilliant observation was 'Afghanistani women have better working conditions than Australian women' (In reference to maternity leave). Of course Afghanistani women are forbidden to work, punishable by death!

    And of course our maturnity leave conditions are pretty much the same as any other western country - the democrats were pushing for something like 12 months paid leave!

    2 days to go.... Time passes...so..slowly.. *gasp*

    Nah, don't vote. Just let these guys do it for you like they did last year.....

    (and just to clarify, I don't burn flags. But the Insane Clown Court Posse was just too good to pass up [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] )
