Petition.

taken from drjon

To petition Channel 9 to allow the Greens and the Democrats to appear on the political debate this Sunday on 60 Minutes, please click here..

Please post this on your own lj's, if you're that way inclined, and encourage people to sign it.


personally, i figure it won't make a lick of difference, but i've been wrong before. so prove me wrong and link it round and get people to sign it. if it works, we can at least pretend that there is more than one opinion being voiced by two men and that these other opinions matter.

Does it count if a person/child/teenager under 16 signed it? Cause then it wouldn't be really accurate... if you know what I mean.

Ick. Nevermind me. Just a rambling teenager.

well, you have just as much right to have a better debate to educate yourself with, so i say sign it. it's not checked outside a name and email address--and i mean, i don't vote. so sign it up. better representation. more than two party voices helps everyone.

You dont vote? I dont want to. Every election day i wish there was a lesbian nazi wheelchair-ridden s&m hairless rifle party, or, you know, something equally unfeasible. 'Cos THEN i'd vote, and vote gladly.

yeah, i don't vote. if you skip enrollment, you don't cop the fine. even if i had to vote, i'd be handing in blank forms or with some protest written on it, i guess.

the problem with voting (and the reason i don't) is that there are only two choices in the end, and both those choices don't represent my views. neither party will do the things that i view are necessary for a government, which are long, but mostly begin with not running the country like a business and being somewhat more humane. of course, the downside of this, is without being public (as in here is a large group of people not voting) then my non voting doesn't mean much. but who knows--maybe someone will start up some sort of movement.

anyhow, congrats on being a bearded juror of german descent.
