||Not Left. Not Right. Just Forward.
Keep the Bastards Honest
|Themes:||Inclusiveness, compassion, community, collaboration, transparency. Science-based policy. Making sure people in rural and regional Australia have access to resources.|
||Upper House: NSW, SA, VIC
Lower House: Adelaide
|Preferences:||The Democrats seem to have a penchant for tiny parties. In NSW, they are voting Science, Together, Sustainable, Pirates and ICAN – a fun, progressive ticket that cares about science and inclusiveness. In Victoria, we have the Secular Party, Hinch, the Republicans (ten to one they have not looked at that mess of a website), ICAN again, and HEMP – a little more centist, but progressive overall. And in SA, they vote Sustainable, HEMP, Centre Alliance, Greens, ALP, and then all of a sudden they completely jump the shark and put a seventh party on their ballot, and it is the Great Australian Party, of all things. Australian Democrats, what are you *thinking*??? I can’t see the Democrats as closet conspiracy theorists, and I am baffled at this particular preference choice.|
