    Default Mandatory Voting? Obama Says It Would Be 'Transformative'

    Lol! I'll bet. I guess if you can't convince, bribe, bus in, etc. enough people (alive or dead) to vote for your party, you need to force them to vote. I wonder who he thinks all of these people who currently don't get off of their asses would vote for.

    It's an idea that has been argued forever. I believe Australia has it. Personally I think if you won't find the few minutes it takes to vote then I don't want you voting.

    Enough politically ignorant people voting as it is. We need fewer, not more.

    fascism is "a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion."

    I beg to differ

    The dictionary definition is below. He's not a fascist or is the conservative pm of Canada who is sometimes ignorantly called the same. Just because you don't like someone, it doesn't me he's hitler.

    (sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

    Nice idea trying to get money's influence out of politics...but if that is really the goal and not increasing turn out where it might help you win an election how about they look into lobbyists a little more...

    This is just another example of government wanting to run peoples lives and force them to do things.

    Obama is a sorry bastard child.

    Damn his whore of a mama for having him in the first place.

    Yeah we have it. Works ok, we change Government pretty regularly so it's not like one party gets any great advantage from it.

    Biggest problem I guess we have is stupid 'fringe interest' parties pop up. Like the 'outdoor recreation party', the 'legalise cannabis party'.. that kinda thing. They usually collude to funnel their preferences to one guy, who then gets a seat, usually in the upper house (senate) - especially at state level.

    So all the fuckwit stoners etc go in and go WHOA IM VTING FOR HIM, and end up putting some bozo in a cushy job.

    Makes no difference to the political makeup - it's always a fight between 2 major parties, just infuriating that some people work the system like this - legalised voting makes it worse as a lot of dickheads that wouldn't even bother go in and make their protest vote.

    But it works. we get a government and we kick em out when they get stinky, that's basically the aim of the exercise.

    Speaking of getting stinky...

    Really? You have the chance to sit down and write anything you want. Could be clever, funny, constructive.. anything. And that's what you came up with.

    Go get some fresh air or something. Angry little man.
