The fear of voting.

In Australia, a Federal election will be held for the House of Representatives and half the Senate on Saturday 14th Sept this year.

The usual topics (education, health, law and order, immigration, economy etc) will be debated over the next 6 months.

The electorate might consider the Gillard government’s achievements, bad decisions, indecision, stuff-ups, lacklustre performance, promises, plus the many good things it has done for the average Australian.

The electorate might consider the opposing Coalition’s criticisms of the government, and promises of better things to come if they are voted in.

The electorate may even consider what they can, or can’t, believe in the media.

The electorate may possibly look at both leaders and say to themselves “Which one of these do I want to stand on the international stage as Australia’s leader?”

“Which face do I really want the world to see and recognize as Australia’s leader?”

Regardless, one thing is for certain. Fear will be a governing factor. The engine rooms of these major parties (the spin doctors) know it, and they do their best to instil fear of “something” into as many as possible.

Give them something to be scared about if the other side was voted in.

It’s a fair bet the election result will be swayed predominantly by fear.

Look between the lines of either sides propaganda,

and you will read   “It’s the wolf, it’s the wolf !!!”
