Austrlians are Missing the point

Based on an excerpt from an article by George Negus
Missing the point

Week by week, poll by poll, the country’s leaders and would-be leaders belt each other with media-provided feather dusters.

As a result of our leadership fixation, we may have de-politicised the political debate.

Somehow, thanks to the leadership cop-out, we’ve reduced the difference between two ostensibly ideologically-driven political parties to a matter of degree, not difference.

Boiled down, competing policies amount to: “We’d do the same things as the other mob – but we’ll do them better and cheaper.”The media in general fall for the same game, how often do see policies analysed. Not often, because they need a headline a couple of times a day and the my mob verses my mob provides this crap.

If that’s what our democratic process has become, why bother with the whole tedious business?
  • Why do we need political parties? All we need is two talking heads!
  • Why not just put governing the country up for tender? That way they could make everything commercially in confidence.
  • Best bid wins! If that’s too much trouble, toss an old penny. “Heads, Labor wins; tails, the Libs.”
It make as much sense as voting for leaders, not parties.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t vote for a leader. I vote for the ideology of the party the leader leads.
Silly me. I thought that was what this whole Western democratic circus was supposed to be about.

And any individual who seriously thinks they can run a country without a lot of help from the bureaucratic drones needs a shrink, not an election victory.
These drones everyone dislikes actually run the country in spite of the politics and they do a pretty good job.https://www.facebook.com
