Ways To Improve Australia #1: Create A New Political System}

Submitted by: JamieMcIntyre

The creation of a new political system is a radical concept, but why have political parties at all? Do our current political parties really serve the citizens interest in the most effective way?

Why not have elections or referendums based on policies, not parties. I mean, do we agree with all the policies of our preferred party? Of course not.

But were forced to vote for a party even though we might only agree with some of their policies. And when elected they claim a mandate to implement all their policies, even though we didnt give them such a mandate.

Or, for example, they say their policy is, no to carbon tax. Yet after being elected they implement a carbon tax, and use taxpayers money to run ads asking us to say yes to a carbon tax.

Didnt the majority already say no? And why even run ads asking us to say yes, when we dont actually get a choice again to say yes or no?

Its a classic case of why we dont need political parties!

Not just because they cant be trusted to do what you voted for, but because they do what they need for political survival, often ahead of the nations best interest or the majority.

My point is this: lets vote on major policies not parties.

We would still have politicians (albeit less of them) but we vote based on policies and for politicians based on the quality of policies.

With technology today we can easily vote on major policies. And the ones that arent considered major enough, the elected politicians can vote on. No more need for politicians to tow the party line.

Imagine the more honest, congruent, passionate debates when politicians can debate policy and not party politics.

Imagine how fast, simple, easy and accurate it will be when we, as voters, get to vote on major policy online.

Our current political system is dominated by two adversarial major parties (Labor and a Coalition of Liberal and National Party) who, despite having very similar policies on many issues, find it difficult to agree on almost anything. They are strongly focused on winning the next election and constantly engage in petty point scoring, with members being expected to adhere to the party line on all issues.

Our parliamentary system is based on the English Westminster system, though the behaviour of members of both major parties in Question Time in particular is nothing short of disgraceful, with the removal of members for unparliamentarily behaviour being a common occurrence.

Both major parties have rejected legislation proposed by the other side while in opposition, but then successfully introduced similar legislation while in government.

In 2012, with a hung parliament, the voters of Australia appear to be totally disillusioned with our two major political parties. What do we need to do to have more equitable governance, and in the Australian vernacular, a fair go for all?

How to rebuild your life, learn divorce laws

Divorce can be messy and difficult. You do not want to have a lawyer that never calls you or that never communicates with you. Before you hire a lawyer, you may want to look up some of your state divorce laws so that you have a better understanding of the situation. You need to find legal representation and ask your lawyer about certain laws that you can file under. You will need to know what may prevent you from getting what you deserve like a pre-nup. You should also refer to other cases so that you know what to expect. Sometimes your lawyer may sugar coat the situation, but if you are able to identify some of the things that could help your case, your attorney is also more likely to let you know the truth. They will think that you have some general knowledge of the laws and if you are prepared your lawyer will be straight and honest with you.
