I can't understand how being nearly 300 billion in debt doesn't ring alarm bells for some people.....isn't that a clear sign this party is absolutely failing us?

It just frustrates me that people base their vote on the leader of a given party....you vote for the party itself and it's policies....not it's leader.....the leader cannot make the decisions for the country alone.

John howard spent 7 out of his 11 years in office paying off labors last debt and god know how long it would take to clean up their latest mess.

I don't like labor and there's no way i'll vote for them but at least now they want to abolish the carbon tax (despite going on about how good it was for the last three years) so at least if they do manage to get in we aren't completely sunk.
I totally agree and understand, but my 23 year old self was very happy being completley oblivious to any of the potential fall out at the time. In my older age I also won't be voting for labour.

How can we choose between two rotten apples? Is there a slightly better one? I have ever seen a government like this, it's a ridiculous joke. Changing PM suddenly ahen they feel like. Couldnt they do it earlier so the mess is not that bad? Their mistakes and terrible decision making cost and impact everyone in Australia and those outside Australia. I can't wait to have the right to vote. Non citizens are also affected passively but we don't have the chance to make a change! I 'hint' strongly to my husband who he should vote for. Two peoples hope in one vote that hopefully will make a difference.

I wouldn't say we are choosing between two 'rotten apples' because I believe labor are the problem....I think the liberals would do a good job. Right now we need someone who can pay back out debts and lead us in the right direction. Liberals shouldn't be held responsible for labor's mistakes.
