    So don’t vote. I’ve said before that voting only encourages them. It gives them the legitimacy they need to leech exorbitant salaries on your dime. If nobody voted for these ‘cretins’ they would lose their legitimacy overnight.

    Most people are so heavily brainwashed into believing that voting is somehow necessary to life, they would vote for themselves to be fed to the lions in the Colosseum.

      Agreed. Interesting how they’ve made it illegal for folks to encourage people not to vote.

    Julia Gillard is the third (3rd) highest paid political leader – in the world.
    Not only is she paid $495,430.00, but on top of this figure she is paid generous allowances and perks of office which equates to over well over $1,000,000.00!!

    All this for doing such an appallingly bad job!

    In this particular instance the old adage “if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys” does
    NOT apply.

    It appears it’s the only job where exceedingly poor performance, gross incompetency and fiscal mismanagement on a grand scale is handsomely rewarded!

    In Julia Gillard’s ‘modern families’ workers world she would have been tossed out on her rear end over 2 1/2 years ago! And our country would now be better off!
