The Big Con
The con trick with preferences is not in the Lower House. Most of us can mange to preference three or four people properly. But in the Senate do not be fooled into thinking that voting above the line puts your vote where you really want it to go. It suits the two major parties to trade our preferences if we only vote 1 above the line. True democracy means that we make our own decisions and not delegate them to other powerful interests. I will choose to vote below the line and urge othgers to do so...no matter how tedious.
