Push through the fear of change

One of my favourite movie quotes is Wayne's buddy Garth scrunching his face and weaselling out the words: "We fear change." This sums up the Australian body politic for me over the last eleven years.

It is time to push through this fear. Australia i'm asking you to make the change.

My all out favourite quote from this election campaign has been Paul Keating in the Age:
"When things become errant, a wise country adjusts its direction. It understands that it is being granted an appointment with history. On this coming Saturday, this country should take that opportunity by driving a stake through the dark heart of Howard's reactionary Government."

My fellow Australians, i urge you to embrace your inner "Buffy the Slayer of Vampyres". Let's use our power to clear the undead out of office.

Okay that's harsh. Calling the leaders of our elected government "the undead" (or rodents) is abusive and inflammatory. If offended, please note that this is intended to be a satirical metaphor for how i perceive their behaviour over the years.

I believe governments have a responsibility to work toward social harmony, not against it.
