How much is the fine for not voting?
I'm a little concerned here.
I don't like Tony Abbot's views and I straight out don't like Kevin Rudd at all.
I think he is childish and has a mean streak.
So I don't want to vote for either of them.
Not voting incurs a fine.
So how much is this fine?
Have I stashed away enough dollars?
This year, for the first time ever, I'll be collecting all the leaflets handed out near the polling booth entrance and studying them carefully before deciding where to make my pencil mark.
If I make one at all.
I've been reading the views put forward by journalists in the papers, but I've never understood politics. Each article says good things about the party they're spruiking in a way that I could almost believe they're the "good" party, but they can't all be the "good" party.
Equally they can't all be the "bad" party.
None of the "promises" I hear on TV are convincing me they are trying to do the right thing by my country, all I really hear is "vote for me".
The whole shebang is turning my brain to cottage cheese.
Hard, hard day for a mouse
