    I guess we expat Aussies can kiss the Medicare system goodbye. Does Labor still have all the state and territory govts?

    I moved over here to the US just before the Aussie election and just in time for the 04 Presidential here, and Oh. My. God., why does this country not have:

    • a federally standardised voting system?
    • preferential voting?
    • compulsory voting?

    You'd think progressives would be hammering on all these causes here, but apparently not.

    Communism. Join the Party.

      My DAH (DAH = Darlin' Aussie Hubby).  He's been ranting about this since he arrived in July '03.

      On the other hand, he rants about John Howard even more, so I guess he's still OK ;)
