Like politicians care about us, but no pollie worth his salt is shy of buying votes when it comes to the crunch. - Stuff like: Not outlawing lanesplitting (and perhaps legalising it, but that's pushing it) - Ditching the levy - Ditching FNP's - Others Liberals need a fair swing to get power, and must be willing to appeal to minority groups on issues that affect them (eg Frankston Feeway) rather than high-level ideological rhetoric. I'll disclose: I believe, in the words of Thomas Jefferson "Most bad government has grown out of too much government". IMO both major parties over-govern and make crap laws. So I will vote for whichever one is screwing me less.
