And all Tony Abbott's magical promises that he has failed to back up with facts and figures....only a moron would vote for a person relying on your stupidity, and if the polls are anything to go by there are plenty of you out there........he has you all fooled...Abbott is the suppository of spin

Who cares where the money comes is coming from seeing we are electing a political business party that provides their egotistical management style over all of us .
It doesn't matter how much perpetual debt they gain us by their actions as we compensate them for our grief with juicy superannuation and perks if they have been doing this long enough for their retirement .

Actually Nev, I am a true swing voter so it solely depends on policy and only policy for the most part, not the party! I got my back up because of how my mate Rudd as PM and the office was treated, and I have seen nothing worth voting for in the Liberal camp at the moment let alone how they are going to pay for any of it, and that parental scheme is a financial no,no for business....The fact that liberal are running scared of having their policies questioned before the election date is clear to all. I voted against Labor when they did the same thing...so I will endeavour to be consistent and vote against the Liberals for their total disregard for what is essentially necessary information for voters and an informed decision.....Mind the Liberal diehards, like those in the Labor camp are always the worry, as they will vote the same way decade after decade because they are too stupid to adjust to change or in fact, too lazy to read....

And that is why the Liberals will get in...not on their policies or the fact they haven't produced the figures needed to support them, but because you don't give a shit if Abbott has them or not...you are a die hard and that makes you a danger to intelligent democracy.

In 2007 & 2010, Labor released their costings less than 48 hours before the election, did you have a whinge then?

Actually Nev, I am a true disillusion 1d1ot who votes Labor and it doesn't depend on policy or the lies they tell me because my infatuation for my mythical friend KRudd keeps me warm at night. I don't care how fantastic and good for the country Abbotts policies are my mate KRudd has told me he will personally look after me for my vote. I know he may be just stringing me along but I'm too stupid to change or face reality. I should go read Daniel R Colgan's thread & see if he has a way for me to create reality from my fantasies.

More than any of them have got, so much so they will either run up a huge debt or they will sell off anything we have left, do we have anything left or have all political parties sold the farm....if history is anything to go by.
