  • we live in a democracy. That means we elect our state & federal governments to represent us.
  • instead our governments very often use their power against us.
  • that hurts, harms and sometimes kills, Australians!
We can either fight our governments or work with them, to achieve our goals. Working with them is far more effective. We want good government and they need our votes to keep their jobs.

We elect our governments by electing and paying a local person from where we live to represent us, our interests and our wishes, at a large conference we call “Parliament”.  There every MP including our local MP gets 1 vote. The majority, in a vote by all local MPs, rules.

Big Business money donated to political parties is used to buy our votes through advertising. But we voters own our votes ourselves. By ignoring election advertising and voting together we can decide who gets elected in each local electorate & thus who governs the state or country.

Votes beat money every time! We just have to use them to get what we need. 

At each election, we can replace those MPs who have not done what we wanted and re-elect those who have. Individually it makes little difference how we vote, but when many neighbours in one electorate vote the same way to elect the best local representative, then our votes have great value – to us and our politicians.

Our local Members of Parliament, not party leaders, are our key to good government. But how do we know whether our existing local MPs are doing what we want or not? We mostly don’t, because the media rarely talks about what local MPs do and nor does anybody else.

You can now rate whether those local MPs represent you well or badly. At election time, that helps you decide whether to re-elect or replace them.
