In Australia, politics has screwed itself ( and the rest of us )
It seems our political parties have ensured that only one of the main 2 parties, Labor or Liberal (think Democrat or Republican) will ever be in power. Most people (tho voting is compulsory here) are rarely voting FOR a party so much as they are voting AGAINST a party, and the way preferences work the only safe way to do that is to vote for the opposing major party – even if you’re not particularly fond of them either. As a reluctant Labor supporter it’s frustrating.
