On Politics

It’s election year in Australia, and one major party is trying to divert attention away from the party as a whole towards their leader while the other is trying to divert attention away from their leader towards the party as a whole.

I wonder… what would happen if the leader of a major party actually encouraged people to vote for representatives on the merits of the representatives in question rather than on the merits of their party or their leader? That would put pressure on candidates to actually prove to their electorates that they’re worth voting for. Perhaps candidates would try to do what’s best for their electorate and the nation rather than just what’s best for themselves and their party.
