Australia Under New Management
ALP seats fell across the country on Saturday, ensuring Tony Abbott will be the 28th prime minister of Australia and have a commanding majority, holding up to 90 seats in the 150 seats in the House of Representatives.

"Something very significant has happened today. Today the people of Australia have declared the right to government to Australia . . . belongs to you the people of Australia.

You're correct, Mike! It's a pity we didn't only limit Banana War Bush to one term!

Scott, sounds like you have more Senators than we do, we limit our scoundrels and fruits to only two per state, but the people have to take direct responsibility for them--no proportional voting, usually that is too many.

Re the senate.
Our senate is almost unwinable. We use preferential voting & the senate seats are distributed by percentage.
This means a number of single issue minority parties can do preference deals with each other & almost guarantees a few loose wing nuts in the senate.
My state had over 150 senate candidates & 18 parties of which only 2 are major parties for 6 available seats at this election.
The system is open to abuse & the senate is usually obstructionist as to have your vote counted you must vote preferential, therefore even preferencing through all the candidates of a major party still means votes filter through to a minor party.
The system needs changing but it's almost impossible to get the changes through the senate, what a surprise, & to get enough voters interested in the issue to act for reasons before stated.

I agree Jim. Fortunately the 2 term limit will end the reign of the Chief Extremist in Charge

Scott, thanks for showing up! Yes, I saw on Wikipedia 50% of your countries identifies with either the Catholic or Anglican faith, though we certainly have had a few conservative Christians check into SermonAudio from Australia mainly, but I believe even New Zealand as well. As you pointed out your country, doesn't like extremes especially the aggressive variety, I thought something like that was going on when your Senate wasn't given over to the Abbott crowd in this election.

Unfortunately, too many people have given up thinking for themselves in this country, they listen to the to radio commentators who ran off the right edge cliff. It's really a pity that more Americans don't really want to recognize ...Bias from either the left or right.

I'll even have to admit that governments, like children best seen and not heard, and I hnpe your new government, doesn't make life difficult for all the folks down there.

I'm just hoping the moderates in this country wake up, and say enough is enough of extremism in politics.

Hi Jim,
the press in Australia is hopelessly leftist, I can honestly only think of 6 significant conservative journalists in the whole country, & thats being generous as 2 of my 6 are talkback radio hosts & it could be argued that they aren't journalists at all.
So don't be too inclined to believe the impression our media gives. Under Australia's voting system a majority in the House of Representatives of over 30 seats is a colossal thrashing & that is what Abbott has secured.
The gay marriage controversy is not gaining the kind of public attention in Australia that it does in the USA, I guess for 2 reasons:
1. We have a comparatively low number of evangelical christians & so for about 85% of the population it stirs little passion in either direction.
2. We tend to be a nation that rejects militant agendas whatever the issue. I get the impression in the US that you are a 'sign me up' kind of people. If you advocate almost any cause with passion, a significant number of people will join in to be part of a 'movement'. Here it's almost guaranteed that the louder you protest & the more extreme your public position the more people will tend to ignore you, even if they are inclined to agree with you. In other words a 'don't sign me up I couldn't be bothered' culture.

I would think one the reasons of the win for Tony Abbot, Catholic and former priest candidate, is that the Coalition didn't support queer marriages. There seems to be a dislike for Mr. Abbott, perhaps because of his religion which makes up quarter of the Australian population. I'm sure there are other reasons, Labor got kicked out, and why the ALP win wasn't bigger.

I hope that we get some folks from Down Under to make some comments, I've always appreciated their participation, even the Catholic from there was more polite then the the usual American Catholic denizen we have here.

Ah, well, perhaps the Aussies know about The Perils of Popery, too many Americans here, should have realized the problem they have caused in our court system as just one example.
